MCT 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS ~ DAY 1

Hello there again! And WELCOME to day ONE of the My Creative Time 12 Days of Christmas Blog Hop! If you've arrived here from Cindy's blog, then you are headed in the right direction! If not, please start at Emma's blog HERE!

***12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GIVE AWAY ALERT***
To qualify for ALL of the AMAZING giveaways for the next 12 days, you must comment on every blog in this hop! You will have until Tuesday, December 13th @ midnight to have all of your comments in! VERY IMPORTANT, PLEASE LEAVE A WAY FOR US TO CONTACT YOU IF YOU ARE ONE OF THE WINNER'S! There are some AMAZING giveaways for this special 12 day event and some SURPRISES to help celebrate "My Creative Times's" One Year Anniversary! Yep, Emma released her 1st set of stamps one year ago! So make sure you are tuned in because this is ONE hop you do NOT want to miss!

Now...onto my project!!

If you're anything like me, at the last minute I always think of gifts that I need to purchase for someone. And by this time, I've run out of tags to put on them! So for my first project I decided to make some gift tags!


I used the Elegant Edges cartridge for the shape of the tags and created the second layer with my Gypsy. The present came from the Smiley Card Gypsy cartridge. I used PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock and some new papers from the Fancy pants Designs "Saint Nick" paper stack. It was also my first project using those new Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I used Festive Berries and Iced Spruce!


The "No Peeking" stamp is from the My Creative Time "All Around Christmas" set and on the back I used the "Gift Card Sentiments" set for the to and from.


You can view and purchase all of the My Creative Time stamps and dies HERE!!

Your next stop in the hop is the AMAZINGLY talented KATIE!!

Blog Hop Line Up:
Emma - Start here!
Cassandra
Jeanne - That's me!
Katie - Your next stop!
