My Creative Time January Stamp Release Blog Hop!


Welcome to the first My Creative Time Blog Hop of 2012!  Emma has some awesome stamps and dies releasing today!  If you haven't been to her blog yet today, head over there now to see her video introducing each of the new sets.  And, be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post to see today's awesome giveaway!

For my layout today, I am showcasing one of Emma's brand new sport sets:  Soccer.  Eric played soccer for several years in elementary school, so I was thrilled to have a stamp set that I can use while scrapping those pictures.  This is a 12 x 12 layout.  I made my polka dot paper by printing a pattern from the Cricut Imagine Black & White cartridge on kraft cardstock from The Paper Company.  The rest of my patterned paper is from the Teresa Collins Sports Edition II collection.


I cropped my four action shots, printed them at 2" x 3", and mounted them on scarlet cardstock, which was mounted on black cardstock edged with the ekSuccess Binding Edge punch.  I love how it gives it that torn notebook paper effect.


My funny soccer player was cut at 7 1/2" from the Cricut All Sports cartridge (the ball is part of the cut).  I made the grass with my Martha Stewart Icicle punch on the green cardstock.  I love how I get double duty out of that punch!


This journaling block was part of the Teresa Collins Sports Edition II collection.  I stamped "Eat, Sleep, Play" from Soccer and added a button and twine.


For my title, I used the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge to cut my ticket and layer at 1 1/2".  I heat embossed this awesome sentiment from Soccer and mounted the whole thing on a chipboard ticket that came in my Art Philosophy bundle.

Here's a peek at the full Soccer stamp set.  You can purchase it today at My Creative Time.


***HUGE GIVEAWAY ALERT***

For our giveaway today, we are giving ONE LUCKY winner a $100 gift certificate to Custom Crops!  All you have to do is leave a comment here, as well as on the rest of the design team's blogs, AND also leave a way for me to contact you!  Each designer will be picking a winner, and then Emma will use random.org to pick the winner of those 18 names.  So remember, you have 18 chances to win!  The deadline is Sunday night at midnight!  Easy peasy!  Good luck!


ALSO, don't forget that all of the stamps and dies are available right now for purchase at Emma's store. There are three different bundles being offered for sale until Friday, January 27th @ midnight!  All orders will start shipping out on Monday.  The "Be Mine" stamp shown above will be offered for ONE CENT for the first 100 shoppers!  It was supposed to be FREE, but Emma realized she had to put in a dollar amount so that she could keep track of when she hit the 100th shopper.  As soon as the 100th shopper hits, then she will offer this stamp for $3.99.

Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully talented Leanne!

Here is the rest of the hop line-up:
