Scrappy Monday Layout Challenge ~ Episode 349

GOOD MORNING my creative friends! I am SO EXCITED to introduce to you a new segment on my blog "Scrappy Mondays"! Yep, every other Monday, we will be doing nothing but "LAYOUTS"!!!;) I am very happy to do this so I can catch up on my scrapbooking! You can see below all the details about this challenge!

For my layout today, I was anxious to a page w/my boys' baseball team! I used a 12x12 paper pack from Teresa Collins "Sports Edion II"! The sentiments & image are from 2 different stamp sets of mine "Sports Sentiments" & "Grand Slam"! I am going to pick up a 12x12 shadowbox frame to display this in! I just LOVE how it turned out!:)
Here is my video for today!;)

~Here is the sketch to follow, feel free to flip it around any way you like , just as long as the elements are there~!
~You have 2 weeks to complete the challenge, deadline is Sunday, May 13th @ midnight
~Link up your projects to Mr. Linky below & leave a comment!

Friday Tip of the Day

Good morning peeps!
Debbie here with Bugjuiced.
Today I am back as Guest Designer for My Creative Time for me!! Emma has a WONDERFUL new release that I can't wait for you all to see! She has a some wonderful new round sentiments to go with her circle and scallop die which I COULDN'T WAIT TO GET!!!!

She also has some beautiful flower stamps and dies! 
SO go on over to her store and get you some of these wonderful stamp sets & Dies!

Now, for my first project. I really wanted to do something cute with a doggie since 
I have two beautiful little furbabies that I love Dearly and I know Emma also has 3 little....well 2 little
 and 1 soon to grow big furbabies!

So I purchased this file from is another really
cute little dog one at also

I took and broke everything apart and then copied and welded to of the house bases together 
to make a card. WOW this was very time consuming I have to say because there 
are alot of pieces and since there was alot of different colors I wanted to use it took alot of
planning and preparation! But I LOVE the way the little doggie turned out. 

I used the sentiments from MCT set "This and That" because I thought
It was fitting to have this card show how thankful our little furbabies are to get 
good homes! I just drew on the little paw on the doggies collar because its super little!

I made the little sign to say Max & Coco's pad since this is the name of my babies!


For this little card I made another little doggie and used Emma's new release "All around everything" just drew the paw with a marker and then used on the bone the "Teeny Tag Greetings" set. I love this set as well as these new all around sentiments! 

My photo here is a bit blurry but hey I wanted to be a crafter....not a photographer! Hey that rhymed!


NOW.....For the tip of the day.....We all love to occasionally use our glue guns but if your like me I get very annoyed by the "strings" that you get from the glue so here is a little tip. If you take Vaseline and rub it on the tip of your glue gun (of course before its hot! Hey sometimes you do have to have these don't use your blow dryer in the bath tub kinda disclaimers!) Then when you go to use your glue gun you won't get the strings! 

As a bonus cause I love that you all give me such love I am offering ANOTHER tip of the day. Yes this is quite like the cheesy informercials where you get one item for $19.99 but wait...act now and you will get TWO of these items for $19.99....but my tips are FREE!! WOW FREE tips you tell

I have to share a way to stay very organized with your blog, your hops, your challenges and post etc. I have constructed a "Blog planner" and I am going to share how to make it with you! And I will be sharing the files with you to make your own. Now I can't claim this as my brilliant idea although I had somewhat a concept in mind but I did some searching and found a wonderful blog where Becky from Infarrantlycreative shared her creation of the blog planner and files. I am sharing the link to her blog and giving her credit for this because we always want to be courteous and give people Kudos for the things they do. It makes everyone feel good when what they spend time doing is shared with respect.
Here are screen shots of the forms:

Here is my book! I have to admit I put it together quick. I was suppose to go to Office Depot to have it bound and make a tear off pad out of the calendar pages but I was so busy today at the office I didn't get that done. SOOOO I went home and made the cover and back and I have a pink bind it all (think I bought it cause its pink...cause I don't use scares the beeeejezzes out of me!) And of course after punching the holes I made mistakes, I put it together and I realized when I watched her video she was left handed and so that is how I made mine....I am right handed...uugggghhh I will redo it at some point. I repurposed a card I had made using my peachy keen cronies set and I used Emma's set "This and That" 
Monthly calendar & weekly blog planner to do page

again with my yellow pictures. Bought a lightbox but need lights! :(

There is a file folder under the monthly caledar so that the weekly sheets when done fold over and under a new calendar. I will do a video of how it works or show you hers on my blog but I have to get it uploaded.

I just know you all will love this because its so much easier to stay on track. I am a visual person and even though I LOVE MY COMPUTER like I love air I still need to write things down and "see" it. This will help with your planning as well. You can always take the pages and re-create if some things are not what you want to have on them. WHEW was this a long post huh! I am going to give away one of these planners to one lucky follower!! So go to my blog "Bugjuiced" leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win! If you become a follower you will get an extra entry! :)

Throwback Thursday Challenge ~ Frame Challenge

Good morning my creative friends & welcome to another "Throwback Thursday" challenge! I am going to make this "short & sweet" for you today!:) 

For this challenge, we are featuring "frames"!
~Use any cartridge that has a frame, if you don't own any, just create one yourself like I did today for my card
~Create any project of YOUR project
~ The last day for this challenge is Wed, May 9th at midnight PST
~Post your project to Mr. Linky then leave a comment

For my card today, I did start off w/my gypsy, but I wasn't able to cut my "corkboard" paper out w/my E2! I used the "My Community" cricut cartridge & found this CUTE puzzle piece! So, I cut it out w/cardstock first, then I traced it onto my corkboard paper & cut it out by hand! Then I layered it w/red cardstock & used some chalkboard paper from Recollections! Sentiments are from "My Teacher Rocks" & "All Around Everything ACCESSORIES"!

Okie dokie! now onto my FABULOUS design team! Don't forget to click on their names to visit each of their blogs!
