Lighthouse

A doctor friend of ours loves lighthouses and his office is filled with them.  The Carta Bella paper line ~ Ahoy There inspired me to create this notepad holder for him to put on his desk.  I think it will be a cute addition (and useful) to add to his collection!

Wedding Card

Made this wedding card for a friend's son that is getting married.  Their invitation was the newest trend ~ chalkboard so I was inspired to create a similar look with the card.  I embossed with white powder and heat set and then rubbed white chalk over the sentiment label to give it the "chalky" look.  The restroom peeps die from My Creative Time is just perfect for wedding cards and this month only it's the "die of the month" at a sale price ~ awesome!!

Scrapping the Little Things

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

Here is my layout based off this sketch.  

Love this paper line by Simple Stories and then adding My Creative Time products with the sketch made this layout perfect to showcase my kids in their costumes!
To get the curved edges look to match the sketch, I used the second to smallest circle and just lined up to cut out the corners.  This really added a fun touch to the design.

Day 4 ~ My Creative Time Sneak Peek

It's our last day of  My Creative Time 37th Edition Sneaky Peeks, and we've got two awesome sets to share with you today!!  "Oh Deer" stamp set which includes coordinating dies and "Christmas Doggy"~ these are just too cute!!   
These sets made me in the holiday mood to create a chocolate holder and a tag.  

Isn't this deer stinkin' cute!!  I had to add him to the front of the chocolate tote!  The "Joy" sentiment is in the "Oh Deer" set and the "Merry Christmas" I stamped on the tag is from "Christmas Doggy".

 I used the oval tree die cut from another new release set we showcased earlier, "Seasonal Greetings", for the sentiment on this treat holder ~ fit perfectly!!

There are other deer "position" dies with "Oh Deer" so I decided to create an everyday type card using the sentiment stamps with the dies.  I also added the teeny leave dies from another new set we showcased this week "Seasonal Greetings", love the "sprinkle" look.
