Day 1 ~ Sneak Peek for MCT Release

Today is the first day of sneaks for this months My Creative Time's 37th release! 
We are showcasing "Whimsical Trees" and "Seasonal Greetings" which includes coordinating dies.  
I used the oval "tree" shaped die from the "Seasonal Greetings" set, cut out 3 times, then took the oval doodle stamp from "Whimsical Trees" and stamped the ovals to give the pumpkin a "whimsical" look!  The stem and leave are also dies from this set with the leave stamp as well.  I'm so pleased at how this turned out and gave another use for these two awesome sets!!  The greeting is also from "Seasonal Greetings" ~ this is a must have with 10 different year round sentiments!

Birthday Jars

I found these cute little jars at the dollar store ~ they remind me of doctor offices long ago that held cotton balls and tongue depressors!!  I thought they'd be super sweet filled with candies and then decorated.  I made up a few for some gals at work for a little something on their birthdays!

Inspiration Wednesday

Today is Inspiration Wednesday over at My Creative Time! This is when we create a project that was inspired by colors, a picture, someone else's creation or whatever. 
I bought these mellowcreme pumpkins with the intention to put them in plastic tubes and create around that. After the bag has been sitting on my desk with me constantly getting a sweet candy corn smell from it, I was inspired to get busy and make a treat!!  I decided to go with a tag to tie around the tube.  Love the new bat die and the larger one fits nicely inside the circle sentiment.
 Love all the Halloween dies and stamps ~ make projects this time a year super cute!!

Next up, I made this gift card holder.  I was giving a friend a gift card for a "thank you" and thought what better way than to "jazz" it up with the woman!!  Because the gift card is for Sonic, I added the "drink" to tie it altogether!

Scrapping the Little Things

Today is Scrapping the Little Things on the My Creative Time blog
We were to create a scrapbook layout based on this sketch.

Here is my layout based off this sketch.  

I just love this picture of my daughter! I used the large stitched rectangular frame die to cut out the picture ~ love the stitching effect on this!  The fall papers and new leaf dies were perfect with her fall jacket and background ~ LOVE!
