Creative Time for Me Friday Tip of the Day!!

Its Friday!!! 
and this is a picture of me and my husband taking it easy after a long WEEK.
I'm the one with the patch over my eye!



He is tired from waiting hand and foot on me and I am busy working and 
opening up a second store (totally different than the one I run now) and lets just say I am 
totally wiped out mentally mostly from everything I need to get done! 


And time for another Guest Spot for me and Tip of the day. 
Emma is away at the Hospital with her son so please have her family in your
thoughts and prayers so that her little man will get well fast.

 I wanted to do a little tag and card to show her I was thinking about her. We all know how
she loves her starbucks so I am hoping someone is bringing her
some at the hospital. So I used her Stamps sets:


I loved how this little tag turned out. And in honor of Emma I made a little
cup of coffee just for her!

WOW that is alot of product in one small tag huh! I love these shades. I used Kraft for the base
and just some scraps in a dark brown and a cream colored I believe these are both from Recollections.

I just used some sheer ribbon and a cream colored button and some jute.
I used the coffee cup stamp & sleeve from "You are Perk-fect" and did what I 
HATE to do because I don't seem to see well enough but I paper pieced girls! I have a 
cute little chef I am working on for another project and lets just say it was challenging for me to 
do that. 

I hope you like this tag as much as I do. 

Next project I made a "Waterfall card" I guess I live under a rock and of course i have only been scrapping
for about two years now so I believe it or not do not know everything....that is out there! :) 
I know I am quite the fountain of knowlege but this of course comes to me as a shock too
that I did not know what this was. I love these chocolate tones. I was planning on printing
some papers on my imagine from the "vintage papers" but guess what....I have to
send my imagine back :( This has been a good machine and I hated
to have to send it back but as you all may remember I have had problems for past few months
but provocraft was really good to me because it actually is a little past warranty but since
it was documented that I had called before they are still replacing it.

CLICK ON EACH PIC FOR LARGER VIEW




This "I love crafting caffeine & Chocolate" is embossed. 
Its really is hard to get a picture of a waterfall card!

The brads I used I am in love with and have been hoarding saving
for the right moment! They are from BoBunny "Ectera" collection.

TIP OF THE DAY:
Now I can't take credit for this idea but listen i can be a brainiac all the time....a girl has
to take a break once in a while (Insert hysterical laughter here....you know you are laughing
at the fact that I just called myself a brainiac)
"Make your own stamp cleaner" 
8 oz spritzer bottle
2 Tablespoons of liquid glycerin (found at any pharmacy/drug store)
1 Tablespoon of baby shampoo
Distilled water
Now you can use a tupperware container, or better yet a baby wipes container with the 
lid and go to hardware store and get those "paint trimmer" pads and use it in the bottom
of the container for the scrubber.
I will try next time to come up with something real unique. I scour the internet
trying to always bring something that would really help you all or organizational
But even Martha probably has an off day! But she probably has pretty good days surrounding
by all that Martha stuff she has and her craft furniture....please don't get me started. 


And since Miss Emma is always so generous and caring I wanted to 
do a giveaway for all you loyal followers of her blog & products. I 
just got in the new line from "Carta Bella" called "beautiful Moments"

If you please leave a comment on Emma's blog as well as 
my blog Bugjuiced I will use good ole Random.org to pick a winner of
a 6x6 paper pad and maybe a surprise.
You will have until Friday July 6 and I will announce the winner on July 7th.

Thanks Everyone!

MCT Guest Designer: Liz!

Hello Paper Lover and My Creative Time Friends!  This is Liz of Liz's Paper Loft.  As I'm sure you know,  Emma is by her son, baby Aaron's bedside while he is in the hospital.  So her design team and other special guests will be covering for her.  I'm sure you will love all the projects they have in store for you!

I wanted to make a card for baby Aaron, however I wanted to use Emma's newest release and still make it "boyish".  So here's what I came up with, hope you like.


Wow, it's been sometime since I've used my cricut and lots of pieces!
I added a wobble to the boy, every kid big and small loves a wobble!  :)
And I used Peachy Keen Boy Mates for his sweet little face!


I had a bit of trouble with the red pen.  When I added the glue for the glitter (yes I glittered his baseball...I couldn't help myself!) it smeared the red  :(
I also glittered trophy :)


I used Fly Away With Me Sentiments and  2 1/2 burlap ribbon from my Boutique!
You can go to my Blog for the complete recipe!

I decided to have a little giveaway, I will be giving one lucky winner Limited Edition Metallic 1mm Hemp.  All you have to do is leave a comment here and on my blog with a way to get a hold of you!  Since it's coming up on a holiday weekend or two, you have until July 8, 2012 at midnight PST to do so!


Please continue the prayers and good thoughts for Emma, Baby Aaron, and the rest of their family. Many people have asked about sending cards to them, and I know they would be much appreciated. Here is the address:

MCT Guest Designer: Katie AND a Winner!


Hello, My Creative Time friends!  This is Katie, from Crafting with Katie.  While Emma is at the hospital taking care of her sweet Baby Aaron, her design team and some other special guests will be sharing some fun projects with you.  This is a card that I made for Emma, since I know she loves purple!  


I got the idea of making a cloud shaped card from my design teammie, Cathryn.  You can see her adorable card here.  I used my Gypsy to weld two of the cloud shapes together, sized at 5 1/2" width (real size), and cut out this card base in lavender cardstock.  This made the card the perfect size to fit into an A2 size envelope.  I cut the cloud again in white and stitched around the edges with my sewing machine before adhering it to the card base.


I can't get enough of the hot air balloon from Emma's Fly Away With Me stamps and dies!  To make this I first die cut it in purple cardstock.  I then stamped the coordinating image on the die cut and on brown and lavender cardstock.  I cut the lavender balloon into pieces and then stamped alternating patterns from Emma's Build a Banner Kit, using PTI's Royal Velvet ink.  After inking all of the edges, I adhered the pieces and the brown basket to the purple die-cut.


The sweet stitched clouds are also included in the Fly Away With Me die set, and the sentiment is from Fly Away With Me Sentiments.

Now, on to our winner of the June Release Blog Hop!
   Diana
love, love all your cards! so very cute!

Diana, you have won $50 in products from the My Creative Time Store!  Start making your shopping list, and I'll be emailing you today!  Congrats!

Please continue the prayers and good thoughts for Emma, Baby Aaron, and the rest of their family.  Many people have asked about sending cards to them, and I know they would be much appreciated.  Here is the address:

Taking time off.....


Hello my creative friends. First of all, I want to thank ALL of you for your sweet thoughts & prayers for my family. If you are not on my "My Creative Time" facebook page, I had a family emergency last week on Thursday. My son & myself were sick, but he had gotten worst so I landed up taking him to the  doctors to get fluids since he was not keeping anything down. :(  Needless to say, they ran blood work & felt that we needed to go to the ER.  We were taken care of by the best hospital staff & I was very pleased on how we were treated there. Needless to say, Baby Aaron took a turn for the worst, so he was transported by ambulance to another hospital with a better ICU. Today, nothing has changed, one moment he seems like he's getting a little better, then the next, here we go w/that HIGH fever again:(  His little body is trying to fight off something..... but WHAT?  Unfortunately since this is the weekend, we won't get any results back until tomorrow or sometime this week!
When it comes to your babies, you NEVER want to see them sick. That is the ONLY thing I don't enjoy about parenthood. For all of my Mommy's & Daddy's out there, don't you just feel like you can take all the pain & suffering away from your kids & endure it yourself? That feeling of helplessness is heartbreaking:(  I am literally typing this post at my son's bedside at the hospital:( 
Who knows how long he will have to be here, but I want them to keep him until he is fixed!  I need my healthy & beautiful boy back home w/his family.

With that said, I will NOT be posting on my blog for awhile. My awesome design team will be taking over it for me. I know many of you stop by my blog & I would hate to have you stop by for nothing.  So, you will see a beautiful project made by design team along w/some "guest designers" Monday thru Friday until I return.  
You never know when life throws you a curve ball:(  Who knew that last Thursday when I took my baby to the doctors that we would land up here. All I ask is that you all continue praying for my family & for everybody in this hospital who is taking care of my Baby Aaron. Yes, he is 12 years old, but I will always call him "Baby Aaron" until he is taller than me! My focus right is my family & I can't even think about crafting at the moment. 

For all of you who placed orders from my store, they will ship out by the end of this week.  I apologize for the inconvenience my sweet friends. My Mom will be taking care of all orders & I promise you will all be in good hands. If you emailed me, I will get back to you by the end of the week. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me, just give me a couple of days to get back to you. 
My email:  info@my-creative-time.com

Again, please keep the prayers coming, you have know idea how much they are APPRECIATED my friends. THANK YOU! Even though I won't be posting on my blog, I will keep updates on my facebook page HERE!  Thank you again for EVERYTHING & I will see you back here when I see you! BIG XOXO's to all.
