MADE IN MINUTES!!

Hey bloggy friends!!!!  WOW last week was so amazing with all the new My Creative Time release products.  I had so much fun!!!

Well work has been SUPER BUSY......then our home life has been crazy.  We are remodeling the kids bathroom, painting the entire house, getting some new furniture, donating tons and tons of items we no longer use/need.....so much fun stuff going on but oh so exhausting.

Today for Made in Minutes, I created a cute and simple tag to go along with some doggy treats.  My entire family LOVES dogs and we all have one....my two brothers, my two sisters and even our parents.  Every now and then I love to make little doggy treat bags for them for a little unexpected surprise.  Here is what I came up with.  The tag literally took me five minutes to put together.




Supplies:

As some of you know, my flip camera died a couple weeks ago BUT......I just purchased a new video camera (Canon Vixia HF R500) specifically for my craft videos so those should be back soon.  I have a few videos I want to share with you all including the MCT speech bubble shaker card I created last month so stay tuned.  It may still be a couple weeks before I get them up but they are coming.....
I promise ;)

Hugs!!

Sneak Peek #2 of the MCT 33rd Edition Release

OK....How awesome is this release so far?  EEK....I LOVE IT!!!!
The surfboard, shells and beach ball dies are AMAZING as well as all the coordinating sentiments which are PERFECT for all your summer cards, scrapbook pages or pocket scrapbooking layouts!!!

Love how the colors stamped onto the craft cardstock that I used for the surfboards.  To create the shells, flip flops and the beach ball, I distressed a white paper blending pink, red and orange distress inks then I cut out the shapes.  LOVE the look of the blended colors.  I hand drew the seagulls using a black fine tip pen ;)  Just for added interest, I used bling on the beach ball and flip flops.

(I really wish my camera had been working while I created this card.......it was so much fun using my distress inks to create the die cuts :(   We have already been looking into getting a new one.  Hopefully videos will be back soon!!)

Tag it Tuesday!

Happy Tuesday friends!!  Today I want to share a sweet and simple tag using lots of My Creative Time products.  How cute will this look on a plain white gift bag? ❤




I'm so in love with that little butterfly.  The stitching on the negative and the piercing on the actual cut is just adorbs.  I also cut the YOU ARE and then inlaid the die cut piece in pattern paper.  Love the way it turned out.

Guess what next week is??  SNEAK PEEK week AGAIN!!!!  Can't wait to share some projects with all of you.  Just a warning:  I'm getting ready for a family vacation so there will not be many videos.  I will however try my hardest to get a project up each day next week.

Hope you all have a wonderful week!!

Hugs, T

I ♥ ERIN CONDREN PLANNERS!!!!

Yippie!!  Today is release day for the new Erin Condren planners.  Lots of new amazing products and new designs.   I've been using my current Erin Condren planner since November of last year (2013) and I LOVE IT SO MUCH!!  Love the monthly spreads, the week on two pages, the additional pages in the back, important phone numbers section AND the plastic zip pocket.  What I love the most is the happy colors that coordinate with each month.   Today I ordered few accessories for my current planner and will order the new planner in August/September.
 
Here are the new accessories I ordered:
 
OMG THE NEW COIL CLIPS.....this has to be my first fave item ♥ besides the interchangeable covers!!!  These are perfect for those party invitation/Dr. appointment reminders/schedules, etc. that we don't want to misplace.  I usually just paper clip them to the pages but how awesome is this going to be????  ♥♥♥♥
 
 
I also order the new SORBET color bands ♥♥  LOVE THEM!!!
 
 
And finally, I ordered the new clear page ruler/page marker ♥♥♥  Loved the ones from last year but honestly I NEED to see through them.  To me it's important to be able to see that next day in my planner....this is genius!!!
 
 
Ok so maybe I will just have to order my new planner sooner than August lol 
 
If you want to check them out click HERE!!!
 
I will share my products upon receiving them and I will also be doing a video update on my 2014 Erin Condren Planner soon.
 
HUGS!!!
