My Creative Time's November Stamp Release Blog Hop!!


Happy Friday ya'll! Hope everyone has enjoyed this week of sneak peaks! Emma has really outdid herself with this release! I don't know about you but I have throughly enjoyed seeing what Emma and my other design team members designed this week using these stamps!! By the time you are reading this post they will be up for sale! Click here to head over to Emma's shoppe and pick yours up today before they are gone!! If you are coming from the VERY talented Katie's blog then you are hopping on the right track! If you happen to have come here first and want to start at the beginning of the hop click here!






I have two cards to share with  you today using two of the new releases Keepin It Classy and Classy And Fabulous. The first card (above) I used the cricut Formal Occassion cartridge. It's suppose to be like she is on the red carpet but for my card lets just call it the green carpet bahahaha!! I added some diamond stickles (that represents all the flashes from the camera while she is getting her picture taken hee hee) I used my I-Rock and added some gems to the poles and also to the bow up at the top of the curtain (the bow is a Martha Stewart punch) I popped the curtain up using Helmar's ZapDots. The sentiment is from the Classy and Fabulous set. I thought it went great with the scene lol! Here is a picture from the side...


Sorry about the photo I've got some light bulbs that has shot in my ceiling fan AGAIN and hubby went to change them and the top of one came off! So now he's going to have to wait till he can turn the power off to fix it!

For my next card....


Here I did some masking to create this scene. It's the first time I've ever did masking and its actually alot easier than I thought! Just be sure to remove your tape before you stamp on your actual project or you will ruin it (ask me how I know lol!!) I used my I-Rock again and added a bunch of bling to her and the little doggies! The grass is from a Fiskars or Friskars punch (I know one of them is a punch and the other one is cat food but I sure don't want to get up and go see which one is correct bahahahaha) The shape that I used to stamp the scene on is from Elegant Edges. The black polka dot paper (shadow cut) was cut from the Imagine cartridge Berries and Cream along with the green cardstock paper. The background striped pattern paper I picked up at Joann's last weekend. The sentiment is from the Classy and Fabulous set!


In December, Emma will be celebrating her one year Anniversary and she is getting this party started early!! Check out the giveaway she is giving to one lucky person!!!

Good morning and welcome to day four of My Creative Times November stamp release blog hop! Hasn't these peaks just been the best! The design team has did a amazing job! To be honest, after seeing their projects I've just kinda wanted to trash all of mine lol! Emma has really outdid herself with this release! It's AWESOME!!
Ok, now on to my card! I used a svg file from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff called A Little Lovin. I used the Imagine cartridge Berries and Cream for the owl and the hearts (on the branch) The branch and the swing I used kraft cardstock that came from Joann's. I used George and Basic Shapes to make my swing seat. I used some twine for the rope. The heart that the owl is holding is from the stamp set 100% Sweetest which will be released this Friday! This stamp set is awesome and guess what it even comes with the heart die! Yup, the die is included! I'm serious this stamp set is the BOMB lol!! I'm not sure if you can tell in the photo but I used my finger and some chalk to create clouds. The sentiment up at the top is also from this set! I popped the heart and the owls head up with Helmar ZapDots. Here's another picture from the side...

You can see the clouds a little better in this photo! Well, that's it for me today! I hope you have enjoyed my sneak peak!! I can't wait till tomorrow for the full release!

Good morning ya'll! Welcome to day two of My Creative Time's November sneaky peak week! This is going to be such a fun week you are going to love this month's release! Today I am showing you a card I made using the soon to be released stamp set called Black Belt. I used my cricut and the cricut cartridge Pagode to cut the lanterns. I added some stickles (to make it look like they were on hee hee) I went with red, black, and white as my colors. The word Karate (stamped on the red card stock) and the born to be a Black Belt are also from this set. I added some stitching with my black jelly roll pen.


Sorry about the pictures it was dark and gloomy when I was taking my pictures and could not get my lighting right :(  Well, that's my peak for today! I hope you have enjoyed it and I'll be back on Thursday with another sneak peek! Be sure to head over to Emma's if you haven't already and see what the other's have made!  Have a awesome day! Hugs, Leanne

Throwback Thursday Challenge!


"Welcome to another Throwback Thursday Challenge! This is one week before My Creative Time's November happening next Friday, Nov. 18th! So, you know what that means.... right? That means if you participate in this challenge, you will have the "Golden opportunity" to qualify to win the ENTIRE release next week! This is probably the BEST release to date!;) The deadline for this challenge will be on Wed, Nov. 16th! So you only have one week to complete your projects in order to qualify! Good Luck!:)"
 
Hello everyone and Happy Thursday!! For todays Throwback Thursday challenge Emma wanted us to use a "Kid Friendly" cartridge to make either a card, layout, or a treat bag for a child! I haven't used Nates ABC in awhile so that's the cartridge I picked for my card! I also used my Imagine and the Imagine cartridge Hopscotch for all my paper except the kraft cardstock which came from Joann's. For his face I used Peachy Keen's wide eyed kid face assortment and added glossy accents to his eyes. I used a older (but a goodie lol) stamp set of Emma's called Turn That Frown Upside Down. I stamped the sentiment on some cardstock using Tim Holtz Barn Door Distress Ink and then matted it with some red cardstock. I used Helmars ZapDots to pop him and the sentiment up. I also used my white jelly roll pen to add lots of stitching!
 
 
Thanks for looking and be sure to head over to Emma's blog to see what the other's have made! Don't forget to play along!!  Have a great day! Hugs, Leanne

My Creative Time Design Team!!


Happy Friday! I hope everyone has had a wonderful week and if your like me probably looking forward to the weekend!! Today is a EXCITING day!! Emma is announcing her new My Creative Time Design Team!! I'm beyond thrilled that she has decided to keep me on for another term!! I have LOVED being on her design team and getting to work with her and her wonderful stamps! Thank you again Emma!! I love you and your stamps!!

Ok, so most of you know me but I'm sure that Emma has some new viewers and I'd like to take this time to tell you just a little about myself! I'm 43 years old but not for long my birthday is this Sunday, November 6th when I will hit 44 (yikes!!) I've been married to my husband, Winston 19 years (20 in January) We have a one son, Kyle who is 17 and COMPLETELY knows more than me, my husband and every adult he has EVER come in contact with!!! It's never a dull moment here in the Garner household that's for sure hee hee!! I was born and raised here in Northern Alabama so I'm a true Southerner! Back in 2007 my husband and son started racing rc cars for a hobby and that got me wanting a hobby or craft of mine own! As soon as I seen the info commercial for the cricut I was hooked and that is where my journey began! I love to scrapbook but will be honest I haved shyed away and mostly make cards and occassionally I will do  3D projects or alter items. I have a cricut expression (hope to someday get the new E2!!) and not long ago added a new member to my family the Imagine! Please feel free to email me anytime if you ever have questions on anything I make! I will always do my best to help in anyway I can! One day I do hope to get brave enough to start doing videos! I actually was going to a month or so ago but life decided to go a different direction and I got sick! I've got to get my courage up all over again so bare with me lol!!

For my card, I used two of Emma's stamp sets! The set I used on the front of the card is from her last release, Cherish The Moment.  I used the cricut cartridge, Winter Frolic for the star, manger, and baby Jesus.  I used Peachy Keen, Just Baby Faces for his face and colored with my copics. For the inside of my card I used the sentiment Wishing You a Heartfelt Holiday from the Mixed Holiday Sentiment set. That whats so great about Emma's stamp sets you can mix and match to fit any occassion!!


Thank you soooo much Emma for giving me this opportunity to design for you using your AWESOME stamps! You are the BEST my friend! Thanks everyone for looking and I hope you enjoy your weekend! Hugs, Leanne

Snowmany Hugs - Peachy Keen Challenge #64


Hey! Today has been a nasty day here! It's been raining and the wind will nearly cut you into! I had a eye doctors appointment or I would have not stuck my head out! I am sooo not looking forward to Winter lol!

I'd like to share with you my card I made for the Peachy Keen Challenge. I used the cartridge Snow Friends for the snowman and Lacy Labels for the shapes behind him. I used the Imagine cartridge Mr. Frosty for the pattern paper and the solid paper. For the snowman's face I used Peachy Keens Happy Lashes Face Assortment. The sentiment is from My Creative Time Mixed Holiday Sentiments stamp set. This challenge was a sketch challenge. I was suppose to use some ribbon but I didn't have any to match  so I had to leave that part off :(  I used Helmar's ZapDots to pop the snowman up.


Thanks for looking! I think I'm fixing to go curl up with a blanket and watch some tv! Have a great rest of the night! Hugs, Leanne
