MCT Sneaky Peek Day Four!!!

Happy Thursday and welcome to day four of MCT sneaky peeks! Today is our last day of peeks and tomorrow is the BIG release!! Are you getting excited yet?! I know we are!! I can't wait to you see these!!

For my card today, I used my Imagine and the Imagine cartridge Snow Angels. O.M.G!!!! I can't tell you how CUTE this cartridge is!! I love the little snowman (and snowgirl hee hee) they are what made me want this cartridge!! Today we are showcasing Emma's new die set and holy smokes I hate to say this because I have loved every stamp set this release BUT I have to say, we have saved the BEST for last to show you!! Make sure you put this baby in your cart fast because it will be sold out I'm guessing in seconds!!! It is absolutely ADORABLE!! It's called Build A Bannar. It comes with two different banner shapes, the little stitched circle (that my letters are stamped on), the pointy circle shape (not sure what to call it, buts it the dark brown shape in my card) and 4 small background stamps (which I didn't use but they are SUPER cute!!) For my letters J & Y they are from the new set, Anyday Bingo & Crossword that we showcased on Tuesday! I can't remember what cartridge the snowflakes were cut from (I had them from another project and just added them in). I added some stickles to them and the snow. The twine was give to me by Nikki (thank you Nikki!!) and I also used ALOT of Helmar's ZapDots and I mean ALOT!! Here is a picture from the side so you can see how also Helmar's ZapDots do their job!!

Well, that's it for me today! I hope you have liked my sneaky peeks this week and hopefully inspired you in some way! Hugs, Leanne

Well...it's day THREE of MCT sneaky peeks! Half way there! Just two more days and these babies will be released to purchase!! Wooo Hoooo! 

Today we are showcasing the stamp set called Whimsical Calendar Days! I've used my Imagine for the background paper (Ancestry) and for the pumpkins (Enjoy The Seasons). The shape behind the calendar and the pumpkins was also made using my Imagine (stock image) and I used Enjoy The Season for a solid off white color.  I just had to give my little pumpkins some faces and I used PK wide eyed face assortment for those. The leaf is from a punch and I grabbed it from my stash and just added it in! I used the Mixed Holiday Sentiment set for both of my sentiments. Also, Emma is releasing a new die that coordinates with this set called XL Label Die (sold separately) The border stamp is included in the stamp set. Love this die!  I can see using it for so many different things! Also, isn't the font pretty that Emma used on the months! I used Helmar's ZapDots behind the pumpkins to give them some dimension and I also added some faux stiching.

I've added some off white card stock to the inside. I'm really starting to fall in love with my Imagine!! Especially since I've been able to get more cartridges (at very cheap prices on Ebay!) Yes, there is still tons of things I "wished" it would do but hopefully PC will perk their ears up and listen to their customers and give us what we want lol! But for now I can say each time I use it is a better experience! That's all for me today! See you back here tomorrow for one more peek before the big reveal!! Hugs, Leanne

I love sneaky peek week! It's kinda like Christmas morning, first thing I do is jump on and see what everyone has created and then oooo and awww for a bit (sure gets my morning started off in a good way hee hee)!!

Today we will be showcasing another super FUN set called, Anyday Bingo & Crossword! There is soooo many different things you can do with this set you will be AMAZED!! The super cute bingo card was specially designed! Each number represents a design team members birthday!! My birthday falls on the 6th so the number 6 is for me!! How cool is that!! She has also included some cute little images to put in the middle (the little party hat is a separate stamp) There is also a FULL alphabet in this set (that's what I used to stamp the word "PARTY") The background pattern paper and the cute party girl are from the Yummy Imagine Cartridge. The sentiment I used is from Wow! So Many Candles (I thought it went great with the girl lol) Here is a photo from the side...

My first SVG Attic Design Team Post!!!




Hey!! I'm excited!! This is my very first project I'm getting to share with you using SVG Attic's awesome cut files!! Don't you just LOVE this pumpkin! I made it using the Fall Celebration Kit and the adorable crow is from the  Pumpkin Patch Collection. I love making 3D items and this pumpkin was super simple! I cut extra leaves and I also made a stem using a paper sack and some twine. I added some golden glimmer mist but that's not showing up in my photo. For the crow, I used my jelly roll pen and added faux stitches. I also popped his wing up using Helmar ZapDots. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry for my glue (to attach the extra leaves) The twig vine thingy (not sure exactly what you call that!) I've had and I thought it looked pretty cool. Kinda like the pumpkin is still in the pumpkin patch hee hee!! If you look to the right there is a blinky for a upcoming blog hop! It's going to be spooktacular hop that you don't want to miss! Jessica has released some really awesome svg files so don't forget to head over and do some browsing and pick up her latest files!! I hope you have enjoyed my first project it was sure enough fun making it! Thanks for looking!! Hugs, Leanne

Hey everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Welcome to day one of MCT stamp sneaky peek week! Yup, Emma has done went and done it AGAIN! Your going to LOVE these stamps hee hee! 
I feel like I need to apologize right off....my projects are really, really simple and plain sniff, sniff. But in my defense I'm still not 100% feeling well. I'm suppose to be getting referred this week to a neurologist and praying that he can help straighten me out lol! So when I was playing with this release I'll be honest I was thinking simple and FAST!! But I do hope you enjoy them anyway!!

For this first sneak peek, we are showcasing the stamp set Game Night. This is a super fun set and for all of you that enjoy playing games you will love this one! It also has some Bunco items in it!!! You all know I LOVE Bunco! I have played for years and look forward each month to get to hang out with my friends and laugh like crazy ladies ha ha ha! Anyway, next month will be my turn to host Bunco and I plan on giving gift certificates for the prizes. I've already got one done for the pedicure/manicure I'm giving but this one above will probably be to one of our local restaurants that everyone loves! I used Emma's Embossed Gift Card Holder and cut it out usually some black card stock. I then heat embossed the dice and sentiment with some white embossing powder. The pattern paper is from the Black & White Imagine cartridge. So now all I like is the gift card and I'm set!! See, told ya super fast and simple but I'm sure they will love it (they have been known to give theirs in plain envelopes so they will think I'm uptown ahahahha)

Ok, that's my peek for today and I thank you for stopping by! I don't require anyone to follow my blog but if you are not a follower and WANT to follow I sure wouldn't complain lol! Matter of fact I'd love to have you! But only follow if you WANT it KILLS me when I lose followers (I know I'm weird that way lol) Ok, now it's time to go check out Emma's blog and see what Emma and the rest of the super talented team made! Hugs, Leanne

God Bless The USA!!

 Hey!! Here is another super QUICK card I made using the Enjoy the Season Imagine cartridge and Emma's My Little Fire Cracker stamp set! I wished I would have stamped the sentiment in another color other than black sniff, sniff but oh well to late now! 

I was going to hold off and post this on Sunday but I decided to go ahead and post it now! I got some happy mail today and will be playing all weekend getting ready for next week! Your going to love Emma's next release!! Well, off to bed for now! Have a great weekend! Hugs, Leanne

Happy Fall!!


Hello! I'm popping in with a quick and simple card (I'm really digging doing simple lol) I got Enjoy The Seasons Imagine cartridge and HAD to make something with it hahaha. I also used Emma's (aka My Creative Time stamps) I used the set Small Talk and Mixed Holiday Sentiments. I used some dew drops from The Robin's Nest and added some faux stitching. I popped the middle up with Helmar's ZapDots. My stitches are all wobbly (I promise I'm not drunk hee hee) I'm still having problems and even tho it's my left side this darn right hand wants to do the shakes to arrrrr. I'm sorry, I'm trying to keep my post short till it gets easier to type! Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! Hugs, Leanne


Does Anybody Have.........

ANY tips on the cartridge Flower Shoppe?? I just don't have luck with this cartridge for some reason! I never know what size to cut the flower. I think I would use it more if I knew how to judge the sizes. I start out wanting a tiny flower and cut it and its HUGE and then I might want a big flower and it turns out tiny. HELP!! ANY tips would be greatly appreciated!!

Stamping Scrapping Anything Goes Challenge!


Hello!! Our challenge for SSCC is anything goes! I used my Imagine and the Kate's Kitchen Imagine Cartridge for my card. OMG! This cartridge is just sooooo cute!! I absolutely LOVE it! This card probably didn't take but a few minutes to cut AND put together! Super, super easy but I love how it came out! I used some Helmar ZapDots to pop the cherries up. The ribbon is from my stash and the cute sentiment is from the Stamping Scrapping Drink Set. I just love the cherry paper from this cartridge! For all you Imagine owners if you don't own this one its a must have!! 


Head over to the SSCC blog and be sure to play along! We would love to have you! Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne



My Creative Time Design Team Thursday


Hello everyone! This coming up weekend is the Anniversay of 9/11. This was such a horrible time and it's so hard to believe it's been 10 years. I'm sure your like me you can remember exactly what you were doing when you heard the news. I will never forget that day and the days after being glued to the tv.

There were tons of hero's that day that gave their lives. We all have heard stories of the brave men and women some in uniform and some just like you and me. I know you will agree that the fire fighters played a HUGE role in being hero's that day so they are one of the first ones I thought of. This is a clip art that I turned into a svg cut file using Sure Cuts Alot. The stamp set is Emma's, Happy Homecoming. I've also used the scallop and stitched circle die set. The twine is from my bud Nikki (thank you Nikki!!) Here is a picture from the side...


Thank you for looking and be sure to say a prayer for all the families that lost love ones that day. Also, head over to Emma's blog to see what Emma and the other designers made! They always blow me away!! Hugs, Leanne

Happy Fall w/Helmar & The Robins Nest!!

Hello everyone! The weather outside has sure done a 180 here!! It feels like fall! It's usually much warmer this time of the year! I actually had to squeeze into some jeans (and let me tell you I was not ready for that at all!!)

I went back to the doctor yesterday and they sent me for another test. It will probably be tomorrow before I hear from the doctor but the tech that ran it said everything looked clear. Not sure what will happen from here just will have to wait to see where they send me to next! Thank you for the continued prayers. I still find it hard to type (my hand doesn't want to cooperate!) I'm right handed and didn't realize how much I still used my left to! So, before I give out let me get on to my card!!
This week Helmar USA and The Robin's Nest have partnered up for a fun week of great inspiration combining two very awesome products! I decided to make a card using The Robin's Nest paper and their dew drops (love those things lol!) and of course my favorite Helmar adhesives!!

The cute squirrel is from the Cindy Loo cartridge and I've added some faux stitching and a googly eye. The background plaid patterned paper is by The Robin's Nest and I used the Lacy Labels cartridge for the shape. For the leaves, I used a punch I picked up last year from Michaels and punched several leaves in different fall colors. I then added The Robins' Nest Dew Drops to kinda represent little nuts hee hee! The sentiment is from My Creative Time, Mixed Holiday Sentiments. I used Helmar's 450 Quick Dry, ZapDots (I popped the squirrel up with these), and Helmar's Gemstone Glue for the dewdrops. Here is another picture...


I love Fall colors! I also love Fall weather but usually we go from extreme hot to freezing!! Well, that's it for my card today! Be sure to check the Helmar Design Team Blog this week for some great inspiration and also I'm sure there will be a giveaway at some point hee hee!!! Hugs, Leanne

Thank you!! Exciting news!!

Hello everyone!! Happy Labor Day!! It's raining cats and dogs here so it's been a very lazy day for us here! I'm still taking it easy anyway so the rain is not bothering me especially since we needed it so bad!! I wanted to say THANK YOU so much for the prayers and I appreciate if you continue praying. I am going to try to get in in the morning with a different doctor (so not pleased with the ones from the hospital so after much thought and everyone fussing hee hee I am going to see if I can get better help) I really hope that you will not leave or unfollow me! Just as soon as I can muster up some strength I plan on trying to make something lol!!

I also have some EXCITING news that I would have shared earlier but I was in the hospital when it was announced!! I am now also going to be designing for SVG Attic!!! I'm so excited! When Jessica contacted me I was over the moon happy! Her SVG's are awesome and I can't wait to get to play with them! Head over there today she is having a Labor Day sale and you don't want to miss out on the savings! She has some really cool Halloween ones that I think you will LOVE!!  Also, go to facebook and like SVG Attic I think there is a code for the sale on there that you will need (I guess I should have checked all this out before I posted lol)

Thank you again for the prayers and the well wishes they really mean alot to me! I am soooo blessed to have started this blog and met sooooo many wonderful people! I will keep you updated as I find out things! Hugs, Leanne

Prayers needed!

Hello friends! I thought I would give just a little update on me and ask for some much needed prayers! I have been in the hospital since Wednesday night (I got to come home Friday night). I have had several little mini strokes. I am very thankful that it was not a major stroke but I have still have problems with my speech, left arm, and left leg. I'm hoping that it will get back to normal soon. I've got to follow up with my doctor next week and they have started me on medicine. I'm going to try to not let this get in my way but its slowed me down (even more lol) I do believe in prayers. They told me yesterday that both sides of my neck were over 80% blocked and wanted to do a by pass surgery but wanted to run tests again before they did. My mom started the prayer chain and I do believe God listened the MRI came back and showed everything fine. That's another reason I'm asking if it's God's will I would like for you to pray for my left side to get back and that I don't have a major stroke. Typing is hard right now so I'm going to go but I love ya all and THANKS! Hugs, Leanne
