Pumpkin Box Treat

Happy Thursday!!!
IMG_0169-1
Today is the start of a new Designers Challenge on the My Creative Time blog. It's a color challenge and the colors worked out perfectly for this cute little pumpkin treat box. 

The Pumpkin box was made with a pieces of paper cut at 7.5" x 7.5". I scored it at 2.5" on all four sides, folded up the sides, and glued them together. I used the triangle die from the Love To Learn Dies + Stamps, and the 3rd & 5th circles from the Bunch of Fun Circle Diesto make the face pieces. The stem is the end of largest stitched banner, from the Stitched Decorative Banner Dies and the leaf is the medium sized of Stitched Leaves DiesThe sentiment is stamped on the smallest of the Trio Stitched Banner DiesThe sentiment is from the Piles Of Smiles stamp set. There is a cute leaf die in that set as well. It would look just as cute!

I was going to make a video, showing how I made the face parts, but I ran out of time. I will try and get something up this weekend.

Timeless Twine & Lil' Inker Designs Cross Promo

Happy Tuesday!
1-1
Timeless Twine and Lil' Inkers Designs are doing a cross promo this week. If you follow my blog, you know that I have already started making/sharing Halloween treats this year. So when I saw the Bats & Broomsticks Dies and coordinating Bats & Broomsticks StampsI couldn't pass them up!

I mean, seriously, who can say no to chocolate nuggets? Especially when they are decorated in Halloween paper, spooky cute bats, and fun sentiments? The nugget wraps were cut at 1 1/8" tall x 3" long. I stamped the sentiment before I wrapped them around the nuggets. Then I secured the wrap, around the nugget, with some glue. The bats can be attached with a small bit of glue, as well. Bag them up and tie the bag shut with some fun Timeless Twine.

Today is "Scrapping the Little Things" on the My Creative Time blog. It's another sketch challenge, so I made another page for my album. The page is 6" x 8".  I love this sweet picture of Z. We told him to give the "thumbs up" sign and he did it with his pointer fingers. So cute!

Head of the Class Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!

Today is My Creative Time's "Head of the Class" blog hop! If you have arrived from Teri's blog, you are on the right track. If you want to start at the beginning, click here.

I have two projects to share today.
IMG_0114-1
The first is a name tag that I made for my SIL, for the first day of school. I saw this name tag on Pinterest a couple weeks ago. I thought it was a cute idea and when Emma sent us this release, I knew I had to make my own version. I followed their  
 tutorial, but I used 7 crayons (odd #'s are always best) and turned them horizontally. I used two of the new sets that were released today. The Love to Learn 
 and Write On sets.
IMG_0128-1
My second project is a journal for my nephew. He is starting his final year in pre-school and he loves to draw. I found some blank journals in the $1 bin at Target and grabbed a couple knowing that at some point I could alter them. Below is what the journal looked like before I altered it.
IMG_0141-1
I just love this Echo Park paper and the new Uppercase Fun Dies was a fast and easy way to add his name.

What a Treat Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!!!
10-10
It is "What a Treat" Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. With school starting in the next couple weeks, I am starting to think about fall/Halloween projects. I haven't used my Stitched Lollipop Holder Die in awhile, so I thought I would break it out and come up with something fun.
12-12
Here is a view from the side, I did alter the Stitched Lollipop Holder Die a bit. I wanted the pumpkin to be the focus and so I felt it was best to remove the flowery part. I then used my Crop-o-dile to cut two small holes and used some twine to close it around the lolli.

Try Me Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!!!
25-25
Today is "Try Me Tuesday" on the My Creative Time blog. The "try me" for today, was using washi tape to make twist ties. Here is a video showing how it's done.
26-26
It's super easy! All you need is a small piece of wire (5"-7") and washi tape! I had some fun ruler washi tape so I thought I would make some back-to-school pencil treats. 
Cute right!?!

I made these cute tags for them too. I just love back-to-school time!

Teacher Card

Happy Wednesday!!!
IMG_0028-1.jpg
Today is Inspiration Wednesday over on the My Creative Time blog. I used this card for my inspiration. I really liked the green background. So I thought I would make another  thank you "teacher" card. Do teachers ever get sick of apple stuff? I taught high school for 5 years, but didn't get much apple stuff. I would think after a lot of years though, I might have. Anyway... I really like how it turned out.

MCT July New Release Blog Hop

Happy Friday!!!

Today is the MCT's new release July blog hop! If you have arrived from Teri's blog, then you are on the right track, to start at the beginning, click here.

I used the new Fun Letter Background and the smallest of the Trio Stitched Banners on my project today.
IMG_0014-1.jpg
Everyone around here is gearing up for back-to-school time and I thought I would create a card for Z's new teacher. I love the Fun Letter Background stamp, such a great background stamp! I cut the circle with the largest circle die from the Bunch of Fun Circle Dies and the apple was cut at 2.25" tall. I used the smallest of the stitched decorative dies.
