The Perfect Day!

Happy Monday and Happy Memorial Day. Today we are Scrapping the Little Things at My Creative Time.

I have a layout with a picture from almost 12 years ago to share. It is sad to admit but up until now I haven't done a single wedding day layout. All of my pictures are in a little photo book that you can look through but I would love to get them in an actual album. I figure if I'm going to do this it will have to be with clean and simple pages that highlight the photos.

This is an 8 1/2 and 11" page. The white background is actually the base of the whole layout. The perfect sentiment is from My Creative Time's Life is Good stamp set. I heat embossed it in white. I also added a little ribbon and the Martha Stewart Lace Doily paper punch. 

I hope your day is wonderful and safe. Make sure to check out Emma's blog to see what everyone has made today.

Thank You Book

I just wanted to share the cover I made for a thank you book. 

I wanted to thank a sweet friend who has been helping out with the children at church for about a year. I had all the children write a note or draw a picture for her. Then I combined it into a little thank you book and made this cover for it.

This cover is 5 1/2" by 8 1/2". The sentiment is by Peachy Keen Stamps and is called Thank You - Big. The pretty flowers and leaves are dies by My Creative Time. They are called Stitched Daisy Die and Stitched Leaves Dies.

 Don't forget the Peachy Keen Stamps Memorial Day Sale! There is an awesome freebie, tiered discounts and 10% of all proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross! Happy Shopping!  Hugs- Glora

Hawaiian Shirt Card

Today Pam and I are doing our monthly cut challenge. I chose the cut this month. I wanted to make a Hawaiian shirt shape card for my Dad for Father's Day. My Dad used to have a shirt that looked almost exactly like this.

This cut is from the Pack Your Bags Cricut cartridge. It is a super simple card but I think he will love it and it will bring back some fun memories. On the inside I stamped Happy Father's Day.

I'm excited to see what Pam came up with for this cut. Make sure to check out her blog HERE. Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

You Hold the Key to My Heart

***If you are looking for my Peachy Keen Stamps & SVG Cutting Files Blog Hop post please click HERE or scroll down to the next post.***

Today is Thoughtful Thursday at My Creative Time. Make sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what everyone has been made.

I used the More of My Favorite Sayings stamp set by My Creative Time along with one of the key dies from the Chunky Jar Accessories stamp and die set. The scalloped heart and stripe cut is one of the pre-loaded images that came with my Silhouette Cameo. I just made a simple shape card out of the image. I really love how precise the Silhouette cut this image.

I did a little faux stitching and added a ribbon at the top and my little shape card was done. I hope you enjoyed it. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Isn't she a cutie? I love the way this cut file and my Peachy Keen Stamps came together.

Other products I used were my Glossy Accents, Sakura Gelly Roll Pens, Stickles, chalk and a Versamarker.

My Teacher Rocks! - Teacher Appreciation

I just wanted to share with you the last couple of things that we did for Teacher Appreciation Week.

I made this card for my daughter's teacher and included a note and a gift card.

The cut is from the Recess Cricut cartridge. I made it into a girl cut instead of a boy cut by using the hair from the girl that sits at a desk on that cartridge. This super cute face that makes it look like she is reading out loud  is from Peachy Keen Stamps The Moodies 1 1/8" face stamps. The book title is from My Creative Time's My Teacher Rocks! stamp set. I did some faux stitching and used my Versamarker as well. Oh yes and those darling little flowers in her hair can be found at Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.

Here is the cute card that my daughter drew for her teacher:

And last of all we gave her about 20 homemade cards and envelopes in a bag with a topper.

The cute star on the topper is a stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps called You are a Star.

Have a great day and I will see you Wednesday for the PKS and SVG Cutting Files Blog Hop. Hugs- Glora

More Teacher Appreciation

Well, I told you I would be back with more Teacher Appreciation week stuff.

Yesterday we sent this bag stuffed with school supplies with my daughter for her teacher.

This was super simple to put together. I used a kraft gift bag from our local dollar store (the come in 2 packs). I used the Thank You - BIG stamp set by Peachy Keen Stamps for the sentiment. The awesome tag is My Creative Time's Scallop and Stitched Circle Die and the the apple on top is a DCWV felt sticker. All the other little images on there are stickers. These stickers were made by Provo Craft years ago.

My second project is a post it note holder. I remembered Liz of Liz's Paper Loft doing a tutorial on this and thought I'd give it a try. It was super easy to do and I love how it turned out. I definitely see more of these in my future. There is a link to Liz's awesome video tutorial HERE.

The apple was cut from the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. The face is the Piles of Smiles 1" faces by Peachy Keen Stamps and the sentiment is from the August 2012 SKOTM also by Peachy Keen Stamps. I added some Sakura Gelly Roll faux stitching and I was done. On the inside there are some personalized post it notes we had ordered for my daughter's teacher.

I hope you are enjoying these. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Teacher Appreciation Week

Well it is Teacher Appreciation Week here and I wanted to share a couple of things I have made so far.

First of all we decorated the door for our school's PE teacher.

I used my Sports Mania Cricut cartridge for all of the ball cuts. I used my Old West Cricut cartridge for the Thank You and for the other font I used the Cricut Craftroom Basics.

I also made a quick little wrap for an XL candy bar for my daughter's teacher. Our school has a gift theme for each day so we will be sending her teacher something each day. It should be fun. 

Isn't that chalkboard paper fun. It is some old paper that I've had for years made by Provo Craft. The darling little belly band is made with My Creative Time's Vintage Stitched Label Die and stamped with the Vintage Label Stamp set. The thank you comes from My Creative Time's My Teacher Rocks stamp set. I tied each side off with a bit of twine.

I'm sure there will be more Teacher Appreciation stuff to share later this week so make sure to stop by! Hugs- Glora

PKS Connection Challenges... Shape Card

Well the new stamps are out and the release party on the PK Connection is over but the challenges are just beginning. Make sure to check them out for a chance to win some fun Peachy goodness.

I'm hosting one of the challenges this month and it is to make a shape card.

I made a milk carton shape card on my Cameo using an old Lettering Delights svg set called Oishii (it had 40 food items & was on clearance for $1). Oh course the darling cow is from the new May 2013 SKOTM that was just released for Peachy Keen Stamps. This cute sentiment is on the stamp kit of the month as well.

I added some stitching with a black Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I added glossy accents to the eyes and a cute little grosgrain bow as well. I hope you enjoyed this and I hope you will join in on the challenge over on the PK Connection. Hugs- Glora

PKS Sneak Peeks Day 3

Well we are already on day 3 of sneak peeks for Peachy Keen Stamps newest release. Aren't these babies and farm animals the CUTEST? I hope you have been enjoying the sneak peeks as much as I have.

For my projects today I made some bookmarks for my girls

All the stamps come from the May 2013 SKOTM. I just love these farm animals SO much! They have such cute accessories too! I colored them both with Copics. I added some ribbon and some hemp twine from Liz's Paper Loft Boutique.  The tags, hearts and banner's are all dies by My Creative Time and you can find them in her store HERE.

There is also this awesome circle with a heart in the SKOTM. It is actually meant to be a wheel for the wagon/stroller but I thought it would make a cute background for either a wedding or anniversary card. So here is my CAS card that took about 5 minutes to make and everything stamped on it is from the May 2013 SKOTM by Peachy Keen Stamps too.

Make sure to stop by the PKS blog to see what other awesome projects the other designer's have for you. Have a great evening! Hugs- Glora

MCT Designer Challenge hosted by Me

Today I get to host the My Creative Time Designer Challenge. My challenge is to make a set of 4, 3"x3" cards. If you are up to an extra challenge make the cards with a critter theme, but all that is REQUIRED for my challenge is a set of 4, 3" x 3" cards. I hope you will join in the fun and thanks to Emma for letting me host a challenge on her blog. To join the challenge go to Emma's blog (HERE).

Here is my set of 3" x 3" cards:

For these cards I used My Creative Time's Small Talk stamp set. It is perfect for 3x3 cards and it has an awesome variety of sentiments too. The faces are by Peachy Keen Stamps and are Cute and Cuddly Faces and the Everyday Character Face Parts 7-9". The Teddy Bear cut is this one HERE from Miss Kate's Cuttables (I just used the head of the cut).

I had to make little envelopes for my set of cards too, so here they are with their envelopes (made using the  3x3 Fancy Envelope Die):

I hope you will join in on the fun! Make sure to stop by Emma's blog to see what everyone else made and to join in the fun! Hugs- Glora
