My Creative Time September Release Blog Hop

Well after lots of fun sneak peeks, the My Creative Time September Release Blog Hop is here! I hope you have enjoyed all of the projects and inspiration this week. Emma has made another amazing set of stamps and dies. If you came here from the amazingly talented Katie's blog you are in the right spot. If not, make sure that you go back to Emma's blog and do the whole hop because there will be giveaways at every single stop!

For the blog hop I get to share with you the Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set and the XL Label Die. These are both amazing products. First I made a card:


The ghost is from the Smiley Cards Cricut cartridge and her face is stamped with Monster Mash Faces stamps by Peachy Keen Stamps, he is also on an Action Wobble. He looks so cute floating around through the night sky with the help of his Action Wobble. I used a few extra stamp and die sets for the card. The 'Happy Halloween' and the 'October 31st' stamps are both from Emma's Mixed Holiday Greetings. And the little die at the bottom is the Curly Label Die and the border for the die comes from the Inspirational Words {Accents} stamp set.

Now onto the NEW items that I used on this card! The beautiful calendar is from the Whimsical Calendar Days stamp set, the die it is mounted on is the XL Label Die (this die is a nice size - approximately 3.25" x 3" - if I measured correctly).

The XL Label Die is a good size and I think it could make a darling banner shape, so  you get to see a banner too. Here is the whole banner, it is about 4 1/2 feet in length (sorry about the picture, this was as good as it got, but at least you get the general idea of how it looks all together), it is seriously SUPER cute in person:


Here are some close ups:




Here is a close up of one of the ghosts. For the faces I used the Everyday Character Face Parts by Peachy Keen stamps. The eyes really pop with some glossy accents on them. The little note in her hand is a stamp from the Mixed Holiday Greetings stamp set. The ghost is from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge and is about 6" tall.


Here you can see the beautiful die really well. The letters mounted on it are cut at 2.25" from the Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge and the paper is Core'dinations. I love the glitter. The banner is strung together with some beautiful orange and black Halloween twine made by Trendy Twine.


Alright I've kept you long enough. Now onto the exciting stuff!!!
