My Creative Time Design Team

Yeah!  I can finally announce it to the world.  I have been chosen to be in Emma's Design Team at My Creative Time.  I've know for sometime now but I couldn't say anything.  SO Exciting isn't it.  I know I am ecstatic :}:}  I love her stamps and have been one of her followers for such a long time.  She is such a sweetheart!  I have been buying her stamps ever since she came out with them and you can find them Here, they are from the same manufacturer as Peachy Keen Stamps so you know that they are Top of the Line.  Go check out her Blog to meet the other DT's.  They are amazing and I am so excited to work with each and everyone of them, especially Emma.

Here is a project that I made to celebrate.  I used one of her new sets called Follow your Dreams, which I embossed.  Unfortunately, you can see I am not that great at embossing yet:}:} Any tips on how to get rid of the speckles, would be welcome.

Card can fit a 5 x 7 envelope
Card is made using the Baby Steps Cartridge.  I welded the Top Note using my Gypsy.
Stamped Image is a TGF Digi Grad Anya colored with Copics and I also used some Stickles
The Twine is from The Twinery in Maraschino
PP is from DCWV Grade School

I have another one:

This is a Money Card Holder.
I used the Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge.  I also used some Stickles and a little bit of Copics for the whiskers and the foot.
Hello Kitty's Face has been stamped with Peachy Keens PK760 Super Simple Eyes and Noses 

Here is the picture of the Stamp Set I used Follow your Dreams

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Yeah, I am all caught up with my scrapbooking.  This challenge actually asked for any Cricut Lite Cartridge but I actually don't have any of them would you believe it.  I couldn't believe it myself.  Since I didn't have one I could use any other older Cartridge and so can you.  I ended up using Indie Art which is old enough right and Create-a Critter on my other layout.

If you would like to join in  the fun and link your project visit Emma's Blog.  Don't forget to watch her video to find out what the prize is.  To buy her amazing stamp sets you can go here.

Here is my Layouts of my baby, he is 3.5 months now.  Time goes by so fast for sure.

12 x12 layout
The Create - A - Critter Monkey was cut at 3.5, I believe I forgot to write it down.  The face is stamped with PKS Critter Faces.
The Stamp I used is Emma's All Star Baby set. Ink used is Pacific Point by Stampin Up.
The paper is DCWV New Baby Boy Stack that is only Exclusive to Michaels for now.

Here is a close up of the stamp that I used.

This one is also a 12 x 12 layout
I really love how this one turned out.
I used Indie Art for the wings with my Gypsy.  I hid all the contours of the wings because I just feel like it would be wasting my glitter paper.
The Glitter paper is actually Recollection and they are very thick.  I used Stampin Up! Dimensionals to pop the wings up.

I also used Emma's All Star Baby for this one except I stamped My little Angel and the The second part I covered just to get the sentiment that I want.  The original one says "My Little Star who Fell from the Sky"
Ink used is Pacific Point by Stampin Up and Paper is PTI Spring Rain.  This title is also sitting on Dimensionals by Stampin Up!

DP I used is also DCWV New Baby Boy Stack
The ribbon lace that you see I got from Walmart sewing department.

Here is a close up of that sentiment.

Yes, his hair is really like that, no matter what I do it just sticks up ever since he was born.  

I hope you like my layouts.  I try to make them simple, so I can get caught up fast and it fits in the album better.
