My FAVORITE Christmas Card!


Sorry, but since this was an older picture, I couldn't get it to get any bigger than this:(


GOOD MORNING & welcome to My Creative Time! WOW, I feel like it's been FOREVER since I last blogged!;) Well, being that it is close to Christmas, there is LOTS to be done at home w/my family!;) That's why I haven't been HERE on my blog:) I have been keeping busy while the boys are at school, but LUCKILY, they will FINALLY be off on Friday!;) WHERE HAS THIS YEAR GONE?
I KNOW when the year has gone by EXTRA FAST is when my boys start reminding me that it is time for "Baseball" sign-ups! Then IMMEDIATELY I think of Spring! lol....... I feel like we just had our last baseball game & I can't believe it's time to sign up already! Which is a GOOD thing!;)

I'm not sure about all of you, but I can actually say that I am READY for Christmas EARLY this year! I can't wait to make cookies on Friday! The boys already told me what kind of cookies they wanted to make so I need to do a little grocery shopping to make sure I have EVERYTHING!;)

Okay, onto my card. I wanted to share w/ALL of you my FAVORITE Christmas card I have EVER made! I know I've made SEVERAL, but for some reason, this one just "speaks to me"! hehehhe!!;)
 For my "candy shaped" card  I used the die called "Tear Bear" from Peachy Keen! And, that CUTE sentiment is from "Mixed Holiday Sentiments"!
Speaking of "Mixed Holiday Sentiments".... I've had SEVERAL questions regarding my sale! I have decided to let my sale run through Friday, Dec 30th! My sets that are "Sold OUT", ONLY CERTAIN ONES will be back in stock before then! ***FYI*** keep on the look out because I just may have another MARK DOWN sale at "some point" next week!!! wink wink!;)

I mostly will not be back on here again before Christmas! So, from My Family to ALL of YOURS, we want to wish you ALLLLL a VERY MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS! XOXO!

DT members Published in Nov Issue Cricut Magazine!


GOOD MORNING my creative friends! Today is an EXTRA SPECIAL post! I have been dying to share this, but apparently for some magazines you have to wait approx one month after something has been published to show a picture! I am SO SUPER PROUD of TWO of my design team members! I want you to give a HUGE CONGRATS to Miss Katie & Miss Liz! They BOTH were published in the November issue of the "Cricut Magazine"! 
The first card above, is the VERY FIRST publication of one of my stamps!!! YAAAAAH! Miss Katie created this beautiful card using my stamp set "All Star Baby" (which is on sale right now!)
Isn't it just WAY TOO PRECIOUS? I was OVER JOYED to see this & seriously, it was overwhelming to me because I never thought in a million years that I would actually see one of MY stamps in such a popular magazine! You can see more pictures HERE over at Miss Katie's blog! AND if you happen to have the November issue of the "Cricut Magazine", you can see this super duper cute card on page 113.


Now my next Design Team member "Miss Liz" created this BEAUTIFUL Home Decor project & this too was published in the exact same magazine! HOW AWESOME IS THAT?  I will always refer to Miss Liz as being my "Queen of Home Decor" because that is EXACTLY what she is! This super talented lady ALWAYS has the BEST 'home decor' ideas & I just LOVE THEM ALL! You can see more pics of this AMAZING project HERE on Miss Liz's blog! AND if you happen to have the November issue of the "Cricut Magazine", you can see this beautiful project on page 90 & 91.

Well, I hope you enjoyed today's post! Can I just say that "in MY opinion" I think my ENTIRE design team should be published! They are ALL SO VERY talented & I think they are the BEST team out there today. I am SO VERY PROUD to say they are on "Team Emma"! hehehehe!;)
Have a FABULOUS day & I will see ALL of you back here on Friday for ALL the winners from my "12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop"! AND if you missed my post that shows my newest products to celebrate my ONE year "stamp" Anniversary AND to celebrate my new Girl/blog, you can go HERE & see everything in the 2nd video!;) Also, my sale is still going on right now & will probably end on the 19th! Keep in mind, NOT EVERY stamp set is on sale! They are price as marked! You can see them all in the HERE!;)

Peachy Keen Challenge #67


GOOD MORNING & welcome to another FUN Peachy Keen Challenge!

Guest Designer: Pilali Biswas - http://touchofcreation.blogspot.com
THE CHALLENGE
Designer's Choice! Create ANY project using Peachy Keen Stamps. PKS stamps are required for this challenge.
Guidelines:
Design must be new
Link up to the Peachy Keen Blog HERE by 12/27 - 11:59 pm CDT
Must use PKS in your project

Okay, since this was a "Designer's Choice" challenge, I decided to use my one of my FAVORITES  from Peachy Keen called "Funny Flowers"! I remember when Kathy designed this set, I just fell in love w/it because the face I used today reminded me of my VERY FIRST Peachy Keen stamps I purchased & they were "Funshine Face Asst"! The sentiment is from "This & That"!


Well, this is it! This is my last project w/Peachy Keen as a Design Team member. My term will end at the end of this month. I still remember the day Miss Kathy called me & asked me to be a part of her team! Yep, it was on a black Friday & I was shopping w/my MIL & I just remembering seeing my caller ID say "Peachy Keen Stamps"! I thought to myself "uh oh, did my credit card not go through?" LOL.... because I had just placed an order early that week! hahahaha!
All I have to say is, I STILL & WILL ALWAYS LOVE MY PEACHY KEEN! They are,  in my opinion, the BEST company out there today! I am VERY fortunate to have them as my manufacturer of my stamps & for that I'm not completely broken hearted because I will ALWAYS be close to them no matter what. But, I will miss tremendously being on this AMAZINGLY TALENTED team w/some AMAZING women & have gotten to meet along the way! Thanks to Peachy Keen, I probably would not have a Bestie named  "Nikki"! hehehehe!;)
I want to say a  HUGE THANK YOU  to Miss Kathy for letting me be a part of this AMAZING company! AND to the MAN behind ALL of these AMAZING stamps we get to play w/everyday "Mr. Peach" himself!;)  I LOVE YOU & THANK YOU .....from the bottom of my heart!;)

On the 12th day of Christmas "My Creative Time" gave to me.............;) Episodes 191 & 192


Welcome to the 12th Day of Christmas AND I am a "Guest Designer" for the AWESOME "Trendy Twine"!;) YEP! I was SO EXCITED when I was asked to Guest design & being that I just LOVE twine, I happily accepted!;) My friend Miss Katie told me about this technique she saw HERE! For my project, I decided to make these CUTE little ornaments & using this technique, I thought this would showcase this twine BEAUTIFULLY! In the video that I saw on Splitcoast Stampers HERE she used these to place onto cards & I thought I would switch it up a bit & use them for ornaments instead!

I used DCWV stack "The Merry Christmas Stack"! For the twine, I used Trendy Twine's "Candy Cane" & "Holly Berry" twine! I just LOVE how christmasy these are! They are PERFECThave!;) Since this tiny tree of mine did NOT have any ornaments, I thought these would be PERFECT for my tree!


Here is my video on how I created these SIMPLE ornaments that I had seen over at splitcoast stampers!;)'

Here is my SECOND video for you today!:)

GOOD MORNING & welcome to our 11th day of our 12 Days of Christmas! Okay, let's get right to it! My Mom had this PLAIN green wreath & she added the berries, buttons & the snow! I told her that it would be PERFECT as a door hanger in "MY" house!;) hehehee!
 So, I landed up adding the red jingle bells & the ribbon & I think it came out PERFECT!

 I always have, what I call "an alarm" on my pantry door where all my snacks are for the boys!;) I like to have this so I can hear if they are sneaking snacks right before dinner!;) lol.......My Christmas door hanger that I've had for 10 years FINALLY broke:( So now I have a NEW SUPER DUPER cute one!;)

Happy Saturday! Welcome to day 10 of our 12 days of Christmas blog hop! I can't believe there are only 2 days left:(  For today's project, I used my FAVORITE die called "Embossed Gift Card Holder"!
I made it SUPER SIMPLE & elegant for you today! I used the "Gift Card Sentimets" stamp set for the sentiment. The pretty blue wired ribbon & embellies came from Michaels & Hobby Lobby! To learn how to make a bow like this, you can see how in this video HERE!

Here is how it looks on the inside w/the gift card in it!;) I also used my snowflake cuttlebug folder to emboss my gift card holder time!;)

Here is a quick video for you!;)

12 Days of Christmas Day 9 ~ Episode 288


GOOD MORNING & welcome to the 9th day of our 12 Days of Christmas Blog hop! For today's project, my Mother made me these YUMMY pretzels that she had dipped in a peppermint white chocolate! She used some little Christmas tree molds from Michael's! She also made some "NON" Christmas tree ones as well! Didn't they come out SOOO PERFECT??? So, when she gave these to me, I knew EXACTLY what I wanted to do w/them! I took a glass Hot Chocolate mug, filled it w/these Christmas fillers, then added my pretzels & peppermint cocoa from Starbucks!

For my tag, I used my XL Label Die, stamped the border using my Whimsical Calendar Stamp set  & embossed one of my girls from "Keepin it Classy" stamps set! I heat embossed her using my favorite stampin up silver embossing powder! I added the sentiment from Mixed Holiday Sentiments & added pinecones, berries and some shear silver ribbon! To finish this "Classy" gift, I tied some dark red tullie to the handle!
Here is a short  & sweet video for ya!;)
