My Creative Time October Stamp Release Sneak Peek #1



It's that time again - My Creative Time Sneak Peek Week!  Emma has created some ADORABLE stamps for all of us!  You will love them!  For my project today, I created a layout of Eric when we went to the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington, DC, back when he was eight.  He loved the hands-on children's room!


My sneaks today come from the My Creative Time Cherish This Moment stamp set, which is being released on Friday.  One of the stamps that I LOVE on here is the simple journaling lines that fit just perfectly with Emma's already release XL Label Die!  Isn't it perfect?


Cherish This Moment also has lots of fun sayings that work perfectly on layouts or cards.  I chose "A day to remember..." for this layout.  I stamped it onto a stamp shape from the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge, cut at 5".  The little globe is cut at 3/4" from Graphically Speaking, and the bird is cut at 3" from 3 Birds on Parade.  I had fun making the bird's map, using map patterned paper from the PTI Road Trip collection.


For my title, I cut a 3" frame from Art Philosophy and ran the kraft layer through my Cuttlebug with the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder.  I love how the letters turned out.  I saw this idea of running letters through a paper crimper on somebody's blog a couple of months ago, but I can't remember where!  Sorry!  My letters are cut at 1 1/4" from Nate's ABCs.

Listen up "My Creative Time" friends!  We are giving you an opportunity to win some AWESOME 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 prizes that you do NOT want to miss out on!  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, October 21st at 12 AM PST, in her video during the release and blog hop of this AMAZING new stamp collection! 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!
