MCT – Tag It Tuesday – Chalkboard Tags

Make your own faux wood slab and create lovely Christmas tags!!!

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to My Creative Time! “Tag It Tuesday”.
Today I made 3 lovely faux wood slab tags.  The are perfect to decorate any Christmas present. Also, you can make several tags and put them together in small sets and give them to family and friends! 😀  They are very easy to make.  I’ll make a video on how to make these cuties in my YT channel soon, so stay tuned. 😉

To make these I heat embossed different sentiments from the “Chalkboard Christmas” stamp set.  For the faux wood slab I stamped the wood background using “Grainy Wood Background” and colored the edge with COPIC markers.  I finished them by adding some embellishments and metallic cord.  They turned out beautiful!!! 😀Make your own faux wood slab and create lovely Christmas tags!!!

Today I made a Christmas shadow box.  I’ve never made one before so I thought I’d give it a try.  I thought it would be hard to make but not at all! So I decided to make a PROCESS VIDEO  to show you how quick and easy it was!!! 😉

The new “Christmas Word Tree” stamp is perfect for decorating this cute little shadow box.  I die-cut a stitched square using “Stitched Square Dies” and heat embossed “Christmas Word Tree”. I was going for a chalkboard look.  I decorated the shadow box with TH tinsel and twine, added some embellishments and sequins to complete the decoration.

DIY chalkboard wood slab Christmas card

Hello crafty friends and welcome to MY Creative Time! sneak peek day #2. Today we’re showcasing  “CHALKBOARD CHRISTMAS” stamp set.  Today I made a Country Christmas card.  I found this lovely Christmas paper pad in my stash and I decided to use it for this release.  So, from today ’till Friday you’ll see different cards and projects using this paper pad.  Also, on Friday I’ll be sharing a video with a closer look at this new release! 😉

This is another quick and easy card to make.  I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the new “Chalkboard Christmas” and created my own wood slab using “Grainy Wood Background”.  I die-cut the holly leaves and trees using “Holiday Tags”.  Since the pattern paper was perfect for this set there was not much to add.  I finished the card by adding silver thread and sequins and a red glitter strip to the bottom.

MCT – Scrapping The Little Things – Smash Book LO

Cute & Fun Smashbook layout. AC Shimelle True Stories paper and MCT Stamps and Dies.

Happy Monday my crafty friends and welcome to “Scrapping The Little Things” over at My Creative Time!  As you guys know I’m a card maker and I don’t usually make layouts and when I get the chance to make one I always make a Smash Book LO (layout). 😉

As I was preparing myself to tackle this project, I had no idea what I was going to make.  I was scrolling through the tons of photos I have in my phone.  To my surprise, I found this lovely selfie of my niece and nephew.  I had no idea they took it.  They love to play games on the phone but I guess they decided to capture a lovely moment for auntie Lucy.  What really surprises me is that these little ones know how these gadgets work, there’s no need for a ‘users manual’.  When I was that age the phones we had were the ones with spin dial and it was a pain when you dialed the wrong number, you had no choice but to start all over again! LOL

For this LO I used AC – Shimelle “True Stories” paper pad and several MCT stamps and dies.  I fussy cut the rocket and clouds and added foam adhesive to make them pop. I die-cut two stitched clouds from “Stitched Cartoon Cloud Dies”, a hashtag from “Social Media Dies” and a stitched frame from “Be Your Best Selfie”.  I stamped a hashtag phrase using the same set.  To finish the LO I added Wink of Stealla to the clear clouds, silver sequins and silver thread.  I love how it came out… so fun and colorful!!! 😀
