My Creative Time January Sneak Peek #3


It's another My Creative Time Sneak Peek, and I have something so fun to share with you!  Emma has created a brand new die, the Bubblegum Treat Box!  How fun is this?  You can put all sorts of little goodies in here!  For my project today, I made a special box that could be given to a teen who has just gotten his license!  The die itself fits perfectly on a 6" x 6" piece of paper.  So, you can get four out of a 12" x 12" sheet, or use a piece of patterned paper from a 6" x 6" stack, like I did here.


Since this box is for a new driver, I cut this cute car from the Cricut Groovy Times cartridge at 1".  I didn't use all of the layers because it's so tiny.  Did you notice Emma's signature stitching?  It's on the front and the back of the box!


This sweet tag is made from another new My Creative Time die and stamps, Teeny Tag Greetings.  This stamp set has LOTS of perfect little sentiments, along with two dies, the stitched tag and the layer tag.  I actually had not yet received my layer tag die when I made this, so I had to hand cut the orange layer.  The real die will look much better.  I tied the ends of the treat box together with some twine and a couple of buttons.


Here's what the box looks like before it is assembled.  There are three little tabs for your adhesive, and once it's stuck together, you just tie the ends!




I used another sentiment from Teeny Tag Greetings here.

With all of our Sneak Peek Weeks, Emma likes to do some FUN giveaways!  To have chances to win, all you have to do is leave comments on our blogs!  You do NOT have to comment on every blog, but if you do, you will have MORE chances to win!

Also, you can spread the word to the world about this release on Facebook and to any other connections you may have.  Let us know on My Creative Time's Facebook page that you did so, OR you can just tag Emma in your post!

Emma will randomly pick and announce all winners in her video during the AWESOME release happening on Friday, January 21st at 12:01 PST.  Good luck!  Let's log into Facebook now and start spreading the word!  And be sure to stop by My Creative Time to see what Emma and the rest of the design team is sneaking for you today!!!

Here are the products I used for my card, not including the My Creative Time stamps and dies (sorry, no pics allowed yet)!
