LOVE...{MCT Tag It Tuesday}

Good Morning Everyone!!
Today I am sharing a project for 
Tag it Tuesday with My Creative Time!
Valentine's Day is just around the corner so I have a sweet little shaker tag to share that I hope you will like....
I love the look of kraft and pink together, especially for Valentine's Day projects!

To make my tag I used only 1 MCT stamp/die set~ You Touched My Heart.
I used the heart dies in that set, the largest and the second largest to "layer" my tag. Then for the sentiment, I used the "LOVE" dies also from the set.

I added a layer of clear plastic over the opening to the lettering so I could fill it with my shaker goodies....seed beads and sequins from Trendy Twine and then closed up the back with another piece of clear plastic.
Layered that onto the large kraft heart, punched a hole to thread my twine into and my tag was complete.
A super quick and easy project that would look adorable hanging for a gift bag!!

Well that it all I have to share :)
  Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created.
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT Tuesday

XOXO...{MCT Anything Goes}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
Anything Goes Thursday
My Creative Time!!
Today I am sharing a card using the newly released set~

Take a look at my card and let me know what you think!!!

When designing this card, I had ombre on the brain after seeing some pinterest projects using ombre ink. I thought, what if I  grabbed the XOXO die from the new XOXO Border Dies set, die cutting them out and making my own ombre background?
Well I LOVE the way this turned out!!!!
I used 2 shades of scrap pink cardstock and a piece of white cardstock and die cut the XOXO several times in each color.
They happened to fit PERFECTLY inside the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die where I stacked them up to fill the background.
Once the die cuts were all adhered to the card mat, I popped the whole piece up onto some foam and my card base.
For the sentiment, I used the Fun Stitched Tag Dies and the stamp set, You Touch My Heart. The sentiment was also popped up with some foam.
To finish off my card, I added some pretty pink sequins.

Want to see more projects?

My second tag, I diecut using kraft cardstock and added white and red cardstock for the layers. The sentiment comes from the I Adore You Kit, and again fits perfectly inside the heart!

Just a litte love note.....{MCT Whatever Wednesday}

Good Morning and welcome to another
Whatever Wednesday with My Creative Time!
What did you think of the new I Adore You Kit that was released on Friday? 
Pretty awesome and perfect for Valentines Day right!!
If you missed the release and blog hop, you can always head back to my blog post and check out my project as well as the rest of the DT's inspiration.

For my project today, I used the new I Adore You Kit...a sentiment stamp and a die to make a Valentine's Day Post it note holder.
Take a look and let me know what you think.....
To make this post it note holder, I started with a piece of kraft cardstock that I cut/score to the following dimensions--7 3/8 x 3 1/4 then score at 3 1/8, 3 1/2 and 3 7/8
I added a layer of white cardstock and then die cut a piece of pattern paper with the Stitched Squares Inside & Out set.
Using the new heart die from the I Adore You set, I cut it out 2 times, once in white cardstock and again in a matching pattern paper so I could layer the 2 onto the front of the note holder.
For the sentiment, I used the Vintage Stitched Label Die and sized it down to fit the sentiment.
A cute mini pen completed my project!

As always I appreciate you stopping by and checking out my project!
For more inspiration, please head on over to the 

Have a GREAT hump day!!

"I Adore You KIT"

Here is the card I made using this set......
To make my card, I used the adorable new heart stencil for the background of my card mat. With the ombre effect and some Hero Arts Pink to Red ink, I inked up the stencil. I followed that same pattern when inking up the heart and "U" die cut.
The heart die cut is from the new set being showcased today. I die cut the center with the matching ink and the frame with some kraft cardstock.
Following the same technique, I die cut the "U" from the Uppercase Fun Dies set in matching ink and added a slight offset of the letter in kraft cardstock.
For the stamped heart...I used the set Live Love Laugh and Be Happy and connected my heart and U together.
The sentiment comes from the new set as well.
I finished my card off by popping up the heart and U with some foam, adding the die cut mat to another white card mat that was cut from the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die set and adding both layers onto a kraft cardstock card base.

3D Wednesday w/My Creative Time!

Good Morning and Happy New Year everyone!
I am excited to be sharing my first project for 2018 for another awesome design team year with My Creative Time!
And to start off the year, I get to share one of my favorite things to make~ 3D items!!!
Since Valentine's Day is right around the corner, I made some Valentine's Day treats that are both easy to mass produce and I think turned out super cute!
Take a look and let me know what you think!
To make my treats I used the Mini Stitched Lollipop & Scalloped die along with some beautiful designer paper from American Crafts.
Each treat was stamped with a sweet Valentine's Day message using the Chocolate Greetings stamp set 
I embellished the scalloped die for the tops of each treat with a heart die cut from the Stitched Heart Background Die
My treats were filled with mini Original Gourmet Lollipops and closed up with some Totally White Trendy Twine!

I hope you like my Valentines Treats!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!

Have a GREAT hump day!
