MCT ~ Trending Now: Let It Snow


Good morning! Today over at My Creative Time with Emma and the design team we have a segment called, Trending Now. This time around we are creating Let It Snow projects!
I tried to combine a snow scene and Christmas together.
I used the largest rectangle die from Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More for my scene. I heat embossed my sentiment, in white, which can be found in the Seasonal Greetings stamp set. I dug thru my scraps so I can use the More Stitched Edges Dies to help create my background. I simply placed the shape where I wanted my sky and snow to begin and inked away. I then die cut my trees with white paper, using the Seasonal Greetings set, and inked them. I love that you don't have to used a solid piece of paper to create with, inking and blending on white paper can be fun too!
Super simple snow scene/ Christmas card you can easily mass produce!
Materials Used:
Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies & More
Seasonal Greetings
More Stitched Edges Dies
Paper ~ PTI
Ink~ VersaMark, SU and Tin Holtz
sequins
twine ~ PTI

MCT ~ 5 Days of Christmas Day 5


GOOD MORNING my friends! You are in for a treat this week for our “5 Day s of Christmas”. You will see tons of AMAZING ideas from tags, treats, cards, gift card holders, etc.... to get your holidays off to a “crafty” good start! We all hope you enjoy everything you will see this week!

***GIVEAWAY***

 Emma will be giving away a $25 gift card to the “My Creative Time” store to one LUCKY commenter each day this week! All you have to do is leave your comments on each of our blogs & Emma will announce the winner each morning on her blog! Good LUCK :)
Well today is our final day of the My Creative Time 5 Days of Christmas with Emma and the design team! We sure hope you all enjoyed all the fun and fabulous projects all week! I know we all enjoy sharing ideas with you all and try to make things a little easier for the upcoming holiday!
Okay I only used two products for this project! I made my mug from You Deserve a Break into a gift card! I love how big this mug is and knew when it was released that this could make a cute little gift card holder.
Please bare with me as I explain how I made this. If by chance you don't understand, don't worry, just email me. I have a email button to the right. I will answer any questions.

To start you need to cut out two mugs and one oval, now the two mugs don't have to be the same color or pattern paper. I used a basic white for the back of mine. As you place the oval where it should be on the mug, slightly move it up (maybe 1/16th or 1/8th of an inch) so you can take an X-Acto knife and cut along the bottom of the oval. You need to make this the length of the oval in order to slip a gift card inside. Now glue or use a tape gun to attach your oval but make sure you do not cover your cut line where the gift card need to slide into. Next simply glue or tape your second mug around the edges, watch the top part on this one because you still need to be able to slide your gift card in. Simply place the top mug onto the bottom mug.
Next I took a paper straw and cut it 4 1/4 inches, flattened part of it and taped the flat part to the back of my gift card. I would suggest to use a couple of pieces and try not to cover anything important on the back of the gift card. I was afraid if I damaged the gift card it wouldn't work for the recipient.
I don't know where these straws were bought because a sweet crafty friend sent me these and I LOVE them & try to use them as often as possible! After all this decorate to your taste! Super fun, a little time consuming at first but hopefully with these instructions it wont take too long for you all! 
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI
Ink ~ VersaFine and VersaMark
Ribbon ~ PTI
jingle bell
clear embossing powder
SU twine

Wasn't yesterday totally AWESOME! Well today Emma and the design team will be sharing treat holder ideas!
I thought I would pull out one of my favorite little treat holder, this adorable bag die which can be found in the stamp and die set, Chalkboard Birthday! This die is so fun to create with! I made two different bags. The green bag has a heat embossed image from the Inside Christmas Cards set. I added the Santa hat from the Santa Suit Dies! This bag sort of reminds me of the Grinch, which I adore him! My red bag has the heat embossed image from the Christmas Word Tree, another darling little stamp! Both my bags have pom-poms around them, I found this cute little garland at Target. It is actually garland and cost maybe $3?? I still have some pom-poms left from the sting.
Super simple and fun little way to give that perfect holiday gift in!
Materials Used:
Paper ~ PTI

I always get excited for this time of year for many reasons, one of them being that Emma does the 5 Days of Christmas!! This is when we share simple & quick projects that you can easily replicate!
Today it's all about tags! I couldn't help but use the new stamp and die set, No Peeking to make some super simple tags! These can be easily mass produced very quickly.
I tried to make them a little different by paper and by embellishing them slightly different! The sentiments are stamped on the Square Stitched Goody Dies, which was my attempt to make them look like presents.
Super simple right, besides no one ever keeps the tags, so no need to spend a great deal of time on them...right?
Materials Used:
No Peeking ~ stockings & sentiments
Winter Flake Dies ~ snow flake die
Holiday Tags ~ snow flakes on stockings
Paper ~ PTI and MME
Ink ~ VersaFine, VersaMark, SU and VersaMark Pen
twine
jingle bells
white embossing powder
glitter
enamel dots
