I'm plugging away on my wedding album. It's only be three-and-a-half years in the making. Progress is progress, right?

The MCT Design Team was asked to use a sketch (found on the MCT blog) for our layouts today. This layout is of my mom and me. Can you tell we're related?

Pretty Spring Wreaths (yellow dots stamp)
Build A Scripty & Watercolor Background (script stamp)

Thanks so much for dropping by today. Mosey on over to Emma's blog to see what the other designers have in store for you.

MCT 27th Edition Sneak Peek: Tree of Hearts Card

by Veronica

I was so sad to miss last month's MCT Release. Well, maybe not too sad - I was vacationing for 2 weeks in Europe. On holiday. That sounds so much fancier!

I'm back and so excited for the 37th Release! Today, I'm showcasing Whimsical Trees and Seasonal Greetings.

The layout and design is quite simple, but the colors give this card a POP. The tree's circle is a stamp in the Whimsical Trees set, not a die. I found that my solid stamps work best when I put a magazine underneath my project. It's a little extra cushion for the stamp and gives a a cleaner look.

MCT Products Used
Whimsical Trees (circle stamp - Available Friday)
Seasonal Greetings ("Follow Your Heart", heart die, tree trunk die - Available Friday)
Trio Stitched Banner Dies (banner for sentiment)
Stitched Rectangular Frame Dies (large rectangle base layer)

***Sneak Peek giveaway!***
We will be giving away the sets we are showcasing each day to ONE lucky winner! The winner of today's set will be announced on Emma's blog tomorrow.
To enter, simply leave a comment on each of our blogs! You are NOT required to comment on every blog, but the more you comment on, the better chance you have for winning!

MCT Tag It Tuesday: Silver & Gold

by Veronica

This is a work in progress. That's okay, right? We were challenged to use a beautiful color palette on the MCT blog today and I struggled a bit. 

What will I use this tag for? I'm not sure, actually. So I left my options open by not adding a sentiment or making it too theme-y. It's simple, but the glitter and shine of the papers really give it an elegant look.

MCT Products Used
Tag Dies (gold layer)
Tag Die Layers (white layer)

Thanks for stopping by today! You can see more (finished) tags using today's color palette on the MCT blog.

I hope you were inspired!

MCT What A Treat Wednesday: Baked With Love Box

by Veronica

I love to bake. Cupcakes, cakes, mini desserts... you name it. But the treat I get the most "Oh-my-gosh-you-made-this?-I-have-to-have-more" compliments on are my chocolate chip cookies. They're life changing.

I brought a box of my cookies to a meeting last night and decided to dress up the packaging a bit.

MCT Products Used
Alpha Pack (all stamped words)
Uppercase Fun Dies ("VK")
100% Sweetness (heart die)
Bunch of Fun Circle Dies (large circle)
Trio Stitched Banner Dies (3D banner on heart)
Stitched Decorative Banner Dies (flag banner)

The box is adorable, but it's what's INSIDE the box that really matters. The recipe I use is not my own original recipe. You can find it here. You won't be sorry you tried it!

I hope you were inspired!

MCT Thrifty Thursday: #love Card

by Veronica

I have a confession to make: I love hashtags! It's so much fun to create witty, sometimes silly hashtags to add to my Facebook status updates or even just to send in a text to friends. For today's Thrifty Thursday, I've used all scraps (except for the card base) to create this #love card for a friends' bridal shower.

I used the 'instacam' dies from Picture Perfect for the camera and mimicked the shape with 4 x 4 Journal Die in the background. I also mimicked the camera stripes on the background for added color.

To create my own 'hashtags' on the kraft layer, I used the Alpha Pack stamp set and stamped each word individually. (You might notice #Blake as the first one - that will be the bride's married name.)

The "#love" uses the Social Media Dies and Family Is Everything.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Check out the MCT blog for more Thrifty Thursday projects.

I hope you were inspired!

MCT Scrapping The Little Things: Love Wedding Layout

by Veronica

Hello there! Today at My Creative Time we're using a sketch for our scrapbook layouts. This one was a lot of fun for me. I've always loved the look of mostly 'bare' pages with a bold main focus - and this page is just that!

To create the 3" x 3" photo squares, I used the Stitched 3x4 Journal Die. After cutting out the photo first, I then re-positioned the die to cut the photo again at a smaller length. It was kind of the opposite of lengthening a die.

MCT Products Used
Family Is Everything ("love" die)

Thank you so much for stopping by today. Be sure to see what the other designers have created for today on Emma's blog.

I hope you were inspired!
