My Creative Time September Sneak Peek #4


It's Day 4 of the My Creative Time September Sneak Peeks!  We saved the best for last!  Build a Banner  kit is just too cute and a blast to play with!  This kit comes with 4 patterned background stamps and 4 dies!  So fun!  I'm showcasing a banner today on a cute Halloween layout of my son and his cousins back in 1999.  The little construction worker is mine. :-)


For my banner, I used just one of the two different banner shaped dies, along with the rosette and circle dies.  Don't you just love the embossed stitching on the banner and circles?  The other GREAT thing about this set is that the alphabet from My Creative Time's Anyday Bingo & Crossword (sneak peeked on Tuesday) fits into the circles perfectly!  The polka dots on my banner are from one of the pattern background stamps in this kit.  I also used another My Creative Time die, the Stitched Oval Die, to record my date.


Since my son was dressed as a construction worker, I thought it would be fun to add a ghost wearing a hardhat to my layout!  The ghost is from the Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut cartridge, cut at 6 1/4", and his hardhat is cut at 4 1/4", from Paper Dolls For Everyday.

Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win the BEST PRIZES during Sneak Peek Week, with a total of SIX winners being announced during Friday's Stamp release!  All you have to do is leave a comment HERE, as well as on the rest of the design team's blogs for a chance.  There are some AWESOME prizes with this release!  Here's what to do to qualify:

1.  Spread the word to the world on Facebook & to whatever connections you have about this release.  Let us know that you did so on My Creative Time's Facebook page, OR just tag Emma in your post!

2.  Just comment on ALL of the designer's blogs EVERY DAY during Sneak Peek Week!  That's ALL you have to do to qualify for the giveaways!

The winners will "randomly" get chosen, and Emma will announce all six winners on Friday, September 16th, at 8:00 AM PST, in her video during the release of this AMAZING new stamp collection and dies! Good luck!  Get onto Facebook now and start spreading the word!  And don't forget to stop by My Creative Time to see Emma's and the rest of the design team's projects!
