I Need a Favour with My Creative Time

Hello and welcome back! Today is the day where we get to focus on some of the amazing dies Emma has created to help make party favours!

I used the recently released Stitched Mini Bag Die.  This comes together quickly but you can take some extra time to decorate it, depending on how many of these little guys you have to make!


I used the Baby Cake Die to decorate the front of this treat bag.  Along with a "thanks" sentiment stamped onto one of the Strip Sentiment Dies, I thought this would make a great "thank you for coming to my birthday party" favour!


Thank you for stopping by today!!  Have a great day!

MCT 91st Release Blog Hop and Sale!

Welcome to the 91st Edition Release from My Creative Time!! I hope you've enjoyed all the lovely sneak peeks this week!  It's definately been a party this week but it's not over yet!  You'll find the complete blog hop lineup at the end of this post along with details on the Freebie Die and Giveaway!!



For my project today, I've created a wedding card using the new Cake Lollipop Holder and Add-Ons. I almost always do this with these lolli die sets, just because they're so versatile and because I never have lollipops on hand :)


This is a bright and sparkly card made with glitter and foil paper along with some silver heat embossing!  And not a colour combo that I'd ever think I'd use!


That cake is so adorable and so fun to decorate! The sentiment comes from the recently released Best Day Ever Stamp and Die Set.  I love the font on this set and that the dies cut out each word perfectly!
To add a little extra something to the cake, I used a small flower and some leaves from the Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves Die Set.

"Masking" Challenge...Create A Smile Stamps!

Welcome to another fun challenge for Create A Smile Stamps!  This one is ALWAYS a challenge to me and that's masking!  I'm a fairly lazy card maker so when it comes to masking, I rarely do it.  While I don't mind fussy cutting images, cutting masks always seems like such a chore!  However, every time I create a project with masking, I am amazed at how cool the look can be!

I made a masked background as well as a separate masked scene for my card.  I used the Scene Builders Stamp Set for the majority.  I started by stamping the house image onto a card panel, then using a mask cut from a full stick Post-It Note, covered the image and stamped it again, overlapping the two. I needed 3 masks in total to create the background.


On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped out a scene using some of the trees and shrubs from the set. I started with the little shrub at the front of the house and worked from there. You always start with the foremost image!  It always takes me awhile to figure this out :)


I fussy cut around the scene leaving a small white border so it would stand out a little from the background.  I used shades of grey for the background panel and went all out with the colour on the separate scene.  I glued the coloured images directly over the FIRST house I stamped on the background panel!


The sentiment comes from the Small Sentiments Stamp Set which works perfectly with the Speech Bubble Cool Cuts.  I added some sparkle pen and Nuvo Crystal Glaze to all the round windows as well as the windows and door of the coloured house. I popped the speech bubble up with some foam adhesive and added a die cut heart as well as some stitiching detail to match the stamping!


I really hope you'll join us as we LOVE to see your creations!!  Remember, you have a chance of winning a €25 gift certificate to the Create A Smile Stamps Shop!! Please visit the CAS Challenge Page where you'll find more inspiration along with link up information!!!

Thanks for stopping by!! See you soon!!






My Creative Time 91st Edition Sneak Peek Day Three!!

Welcome to the third day of sneak peeks for this fabulous birthday themed release for My Creative Time! Today we're showing you the Stitched Mini Bag Die.

This is a cute little party favour bag that comes together in a snap!


With one pass through your die cutting machine (unfortunately, this die will not fit through a Cuttlebug) you get this fantastic little bag!  I decided to use vellum for my bag.

I embellished it with a potted plant from the Healing Wishes Stamp and Die Set which I gold heat embossed onto vellum.  I thought this would make a super cute way to give plant seeds!


I used a few strips of adhesive on the flaps but this bag will stay together nicely by just tying the top together!

And that was a quick look at today's awesome die!!  Thank you for stopping in and please come back tomorrow for our last sneak peek!!

91st My Creative Time Edition Release Sneak Day Two!

As I mentioned in yesterday's sneak, this release is all about birthdays! So, let's keep this party going with a look at another die set...This is the Cake Lollipop Holder and Add-Ons Set!  Another great addition to all the lollipop holder dies Emma has in her shop!


I used the set to create more of a party favour than a lollipop holder.  The add-ons make it so easy to create the perfect cake!


I found that two bags of sequins fit perfectly inside the assembled die. What a cut and fun little gift!!


You really could have a lot of fun creating different styles on cakes with this set, which I plan to do!!

Hope you enjoyed today's sneak! Please come back tomorrow for another little look at this fun release!
