My Creative Time's Guest Designer!

Emma, over at My Creative Time  asked me to be a Guest Designer for her today! I am ecstatic that my projects were enough to catch her eye. She always has the cutest cards and projects on her website and her designers...well they are just as fabulous! You'll just have to head on over there instead of taking my word for it!

I'm sure most of you know, that she just released her 8th stamp set last Friday too! You can view the new sets HERE! They are fabulous and once again ones that I absolutely could not live without! :) I hope you all enjoy my project showcasing the fabulous MY Creative Time stamp set, "Wow, So Many Candles!" and the new Cricut Cartridge "Sweet Tooth Boxes!"

Thank you once again Emma for allowing me this opportunity! :)









For this project I used the K&CO Confetti Paper Stack for all my cardstock and cuts. It has a ton of great designs in it! I chose Box 3 from the Sweet Tooth Box cartridge, and the scalloped lid. I cut the box at 10 1/2 inches and took the lid down to about 10.3 inches. I felt leaving it at the 10 1/2 was a little too big. I used my Gypsy to cut a star in the middle of the front panel of the box. The star was from George and Basic Shapes cut at 2 inches. I used a small piece of cellophane and adhered it to the inside. I used my Gypsy to create an outline of the star to cut out, so it has a border. That was cut just a few clicks larger than 2 inches. Cricut American Alphabet was used to cut out the cupcake (1 3/4 inches) and party hat (2 1/4 inches) on both sides of the box and the present ( 2 1/2 inches) on the back. I used some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink on all the edges. My stamped sentiments came from the "Wow, So Many Candles" stamp set, and I of course had to use that new die and stamp from "Inspiring Words" for the little tag. I finished the top off with some Offray Aqua Ribbon.

To complete the gift, I made a 4x4 card with some of the scraps from the cuts. I used a PaperTrey Ink RickRack Border Die for the border on on the card. The star was the one cut from the box. I again chose a sentiment from "Wow, So Many Candles!"

I hope you all have enjoyed checking out my Guest Designer Project!
