Halloween Cupcake Toppers (MCT)

I'm so loving EVERYTHING My Creative Time.  The stitching on the dies is adorable and the stamps are super cute.

So Halloween is always a fun event for my family.  I have two sisters and two brothers and between the five of us, we have eleven kids.  Every Halloween, we all go to my younger sisters house and we take the kids trick or treating, then we gather for pizza.  Hearing the kids laugh and play together is priceless.

Kasi and I decided that this year we would take be taking cupcakes.  We created these cute cupcake toppers using Emma's latest release.

Products used:
Fright Night Stamp Set
Spooky Starry Night Stamp Set
Stitched Spooky Ghost Dies
Vintage Stitched Label Dies
Scallop & Stitched Circle Die

December Daily?'s that time of year again for me.  I'm so excited about this one.

Yesterday I logged into my personal Facebook account to check on my cousins little girl.  She's 3 years old and has been in the hospital for the past 40 days.   During this time, she has had two open heart surgeries, 2 caths and another large surgery to repair a lymphatic nodes.   Gigi is all that I have been thinking about for the past 40 days.  She is in my daily thoughts and prayers.   In Jesus name, she will be healed!!!   Anywho, when I logged in, I saw a post from Becky Higgins as to the new Christmas PL kit.   I ran over to HSN and ordered it right away.  I have been waiting for a December Daily, Project Life style for a couple years now and I just COULD NOT pass this one up.

Oh's she gorgeous?????  

What You Get
  • 8" x 8" album with 20 divided pocket pages
  • (10) 4" x 6" title cards
  • (10) 4" x 6" journaling cards
  • (80) 3" x 4" journaling cards
  • 2 markers - Silver Metallic
  • 2 markers - Gold Metallic
  • Marker - White Galaxy

This kit is going to be perfect!!  I can totally enjoy the holidays and still document them without all the stress of having to create all my pages.  In 2011, I made my first December Daily (see that post HERE) and to be honest,  it was fun, but it totally burned me out.  I tried out a ton of different techniques, created all my dividers and all my insert cards.   YES I love it and it's beautiful, but just want to keep it simple this year.  OK.....those that know me, know that I will probably be jazzing them up a bit lol, but I'm really going to keep it simple - at least that's my plan ;)

Hope you are all having a fabulous week!!

Hugs and blessings, T

MCT Projects Share!!

Just playing around with some of my new goodies from My Creative Time.  I ordered a ton of things last week during the sale.

Loving these new large tag dies I purchased - there is so much you can do with them.

For this project I created a vellum and acetate tag with some yummy sequins confetti and layered that on top  of a craft and stars pattern paper.  I added a black cut ghost to the pattern paper so that when I layered the vellum/acetate/sequins tag, the "shadow" ghost shows up.  I sketched this out the other day and it turned out exactly as I envisioned it.

MCT products I used:
Tag dies
Stitched Spooky Ghost Die
Fright Night Stamp Set
Stitched Fun Ticket Dies

I also used the hole reinforcer from the Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag Die set.  I love how versatile this tag set it.

For this next Project I made a Title page for Week 43 of my Project Life.  I love the little witch and bats in the background.

MCT products I used:
Stitched 4x6 journaling die
Type Calendar Stamp Set
Stitched Round Tab, Arrow & Tag dies

Stitched Spooky Ghost Die
Fright Night Stamp Set

Planning on playing a little more this weekend after my son's baseball game.  YES baseball season is back!!  WE LOVE BASEBALL!!!  On my wish list are the MCT baseball sets ;)

Hope everyone has a great weekend.

Hugs and blessings, T

And here is a video for both projects!!
