MCT 12 Days of Christmas Day 9!


***12 Days of Christmas Give Away Alert***
To qualify for ALL the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tues, Dec 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S!
There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event & some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Time's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!;)
 
Welcome to day 9! Wow, only 3 days left!! By now, I really hope that we have inspired you with alot of your gift ideas! I know this has helped me out so much and instead of waiting to the last minute I now have some of the things finished that I wanted to do! If you are coming from Katie's blog then you are headed in the right direction. To start at the beginning of the hop please go to Emma's blog where she starts us off each day!
 
Well, if you all remember I got my early Christmas present a month or so ago...a brand new computer! The sad thing was the editing program that I used for my photos no longer worked :( I went and purchased Adobe Photoshop Elements 10 but have not been using it because I find it rather complicated lol! I've been using a free program called Picnik which is super simple! But after yesterday I learned my colors are not truly showing correctly so today I've tried editing this one with Photoshop! Still, not completely pleased with how this turned out but I guess over time it will get easier and hopefully my pictures will get better! For one thing, if my hubby new that I was using a Free editing program after swearing I HAD to have Photoshop (which was in my opinion way to high lol) he would KILL me hee hee!
 
Today I have another altered bag to show you! I love doing these! I used Snow Friends, Very Merry Tags, and Lacy Labels. I just love the Snowmen on Snow Friends and adding a peachy face to them makes them even cuter! I was worried after I cut him out that I didn't have a face that would work and was SO excited to find one on the PK Everyday Character face assortment!! Not sure if you can tell in the photo but I've added some glossy accents to his eyes. I'm really digging these colors together! I really hope they show up correctly on your screen! I figured out what cartridge I used for the snowflakes (for my other gift bag I couldn't remember and didn't list it) They are from the Lacy Labels cartridge! I know this because I had to cut some more bahahaha! I free hand cut some card stock to look like he's sitting in the snow. I used Emma's Scallop and Stitched Circle Die plus the stamp set Mixed Holiday Sentiments. I heat embossed Snowmany Hugs with Zing embossing powder. For the tag, I used the Very Merry Tag cartridge. I must confess this is only the second time I've used this cartridge (the first time you will get to see soon!) I honestly had forgot about it! I can't believe I've not used it! These tags are super quick and easy! I've added some stitching with a white jelly roll pen. On the backside, I used Emma's, Gift Card Sentiment set and added To & From. I attached it to the bag using some twine from my stash! Now hopefully I will get to use this bag!! My mom stopped by yesterday and laid claim to the other one!! I didn't mind! I even offered this one to her to if she wanted it! But I guess I got lucky and getting to keep it! It's to small for what she needed! I just may have to do some more for her hee hee! Well, that's it for today's project! I hope you have enjoyed it! I sure had fun making it! Have a super Friday and see you back here tomorrow for day 10!! Now, it's time to hop on over to Linsey's wonderful blog!!
 
Here's the complete line up...

Love, love, love this decorated bag. Right up my alley. In fact I took time out from decorating a few bags of my own to blog hop here. Let me also say, I've been through exactly the same experience with the photo editing program and my wonderful hubby got me Photoshop Elements last year. It does nothing but frustrate me and I don't dare share that thought with him. Thanks for letting me air that. LOL
