MCT – 47th Edition Release Blog Hop – Birthday Gift Pocket


Happy Friday my crafty friends and welcome to My Creative Time! 47th Edition Release Blog Hop!!!  I hope you enjoyed this week’s sneak peeks as much as I did! 🙂  Today is reveal day…YAY!  If you came from Liz’s Blog, you are in the right place.  If you just happened to arrive here, you might want to start back at Emma’s blog, so that you don’t miss anything!

Today I’m showcasing the NEW “Stitched Treat Sleeve Die”.  Recently I got the Anna Griffin Minc Machine but I never had an opportunity to use it until now and since a friend has an upcoming birthday I decided to make her a little something.  I made a mini envelope using this NEW DIE.  It’s perfect for including a small present (I’m giving her a pair of hoop earrings).  Since I don’t have many 12″x12″ pattern papers, I decided to design my own. I designed a polka dot background and tried to make two die cuts out of a single sheet of CS.  I printed it using a laser printer and applied Heidi Swapp rose gold foil using the Minc machine.  minc-machine-birthday-treat-bag-09-2015-2

To decorate it I used the NEW “Happy Everything Stamp and Die”.  I die-cut ‘happy’ twice in foil paper and foamy.  I stamped and heat embossed ‘Birthday’ and cut it into a banner, added glitter at the end and tied a bow.  I die-cut a stitched banner on vellum.   I really LOVE the way it turned out even though the foil is not as crisp as it should be but I think it’s the quality of paper …anyway I still think it looks pretty!!!
