MCT July Sneak Peek #5

It's our last day of July My Creative Time sneak peeks!  Are you in love with this release as much as I am?  The possibilities of what you can use these products for are endless!  Today I'm sharing a gift tag I made for my nephew's 19th birthday.  I kept it simple and masculine for him.

Now remember, it's your job to guess what MCT products I used today!  That leaves me not much to tell you about this tag, LOL!  I can say I used Papertrey Ink ripe avocado  and canyon clay cardstock for my elements, two of my go-to colors for masculine projects.  I also cut my numbers out three times and stacked them to make them nice and thick!

I used American Crafts patterned paper from a 6x6 pack that I found at Michael's.  That cute "cork" brad from the Simple Stories 24/7 collection has a purpose:  to keep the file folder closed, I just tucked the front flap under it!

Sneak Peek Giveaway Time!

Okay, this time around we are doing something DIFFERENT!  Since you ALL have seen this release in its entirety, we decided to play a FUN game!  First of all, let me tell you what you will win!  One LUCKY person will win ALL of this!

This is what the price package includes:

* D-Ring 12" x 12" album - Brown

We will also have a 2nd prize winner who will win a $50 gift certificate to the My Creative Time store!

We decided to make our giveaway a little easier for you.  Instead of listing ALL of the MCT products that each designer used on their projects, try to find just one!  If you can "spy" one old or new My Creative Time product and tell us about it in the comments, you will be eligible to win one of these great prizes!

Emma will announce the winner during the blog hop on Wednesday, July 17th.
