A note of thanks....{MCT Made in Minutes}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to 
Made in Minutes 
with 
If you are new to my blog MIM is where we create something that could be created quickly or mass produced.
Since we just had an AWESOME new kit released on Friday, I used the Thankful Greetings set and made a mini pumpkin note card :)
Take a look and let me know what you think....
To make my note card, I used the Just a Note set for the note card base. I added a Stitched Square layer on top with some designer paper from my stash.
That adorable pumpkin comes from the Spooky  Creepy Night set and for some extra details I used the newly released die from the Thankful Greetings Kit. 
Finally the sentiment is also from the new kit and I finished off my note card with some Nuvo Enamel Dots
A super quick mini card that can be made for any holiday/season with just scraps from your stash!!

Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Monday!!!

I introduce to you:
"Thankful Greetings"

And here is my inspiration.....
For my project I made a card and matching tag. 
I made the tag first and loved the way the stencil inked up with my distress ink. I used the Just Tags Die, and cut the pieces in white and kraft cardstock. On the white cardstock layer, I inked up just the leaves using Crushed Olive, Carved Pumpkin and Candied Apple Distress Ink. The sentiment, part from the matching die set and the stamped part from the Thankful Greetings stamp set was added on the side of the tag. Some hemp twine to the tag top and my tag was complete.
Since I loved the tag so much, I decided to make a matching card. I used the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die for the white layer of my card and again inked up the stencil with the same matching colors. I die cut the sentiment and stamped again the same sentiment onto the card mat.
The mat was then popped up onto the card front, a hemp twine bow was added and my card was complete.

Happy Pumpkin Spice Season.....{MCT Trending Now}

Good Morning everyone and welcome to another
"Trending Now" with My Creative Time!!
Today's trending now is "Fall Harvest"
The DT was asked to make anything that has to do with fall.
Well fall I think is my favorite time of the year~ know why??
PUMPKIN season!!!!
My inspiration comes from all things pumpkin, especially Pumpkin Coffee!!
Take a look at my card and let me know what you think......
I made my card using several stamp/die sets.
I started with my favorite, the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die for the top layer of my card and layered it on a piece of white cardstock and a kraft A2 size card base.
Next I stamped my sentiment using the Gobble Gobble set.
The focal point of my card is that adorable coffee cup from the set~ We're Better Together. I did add the die cut pumpkin to the cup from the Mini Lolly Add-Ons. The little leaf I also added to the pumpkin is from the new set~ Build a Fall Wreath.
To finish up my card, I added a gold thread nest behind the cup and some matching green and orange sequins.
A sweet fall card for a pumpkin spice fan!!

Well that is all I have for today~
Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the DT made!
I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a GREAT Thursday!!!

Happy B-Day...{MCT Anything Goes}

Good Morning everyone!
I am sharing a project today for
Anything Goes Thursday!


Birthdays always seem to creep up so fast and then I scramble around looking for a card/gift to the birthday person. When Miss Emma released the new Cute Gift Tag Die I knew that the fun present die would be perfect for the Embossed Gift Card Holder

Take a look at my project and let me know what you think......
The best thing about this project, besides how quick and easy it is to put together, is that this can be made for both girls and boys depending on the designer paper you use.
I used just the present die from the Cute Gift Tag Die and popped it up onto the front of the Embossed Gift Card Holder. The sentiment, from the Fun Vertical Greetings was stamped onto the gift card holder.
I finished my project off by adding a few small stars from the Bunch of Stitched Stars set to compliment the present designer paper.

Want to see more projects?
Make sure you head on over to 
My Creative Time

I know the inspiration is AWESOME!!!!

MCT 71st New Release BIG Reveal & Blog Hop

Welcome to the 71st  New Release from 

 This has been such an AWESOME few days of  amazing inspiration from the DT~ don't you think???
But there is one more day of projects with so lets get started....

You should be coming from the VERY talented
but if you are just stopping in, make sure to head back to the start~ the AMAZING 
You are not going to want to miss a thing!

For my project, I get to showcase the new
Pocketful of Holidays & Pocketful of Holiday Sentiments

here is the card I made using those sets......
It is hard to think about snow and winter when we are going to have an unseasonably warm weekend but I just love this cutie snowman!
I again played around with paper piecing and the beautiful I Love Winter paper pack from Echo Park.
I die cut the pocket and the snowman using the new Pocketful of Holidays set. The snowman in white cardstock and the pocket in designer paper. After paper piecing the snowman, I popped him up onto the pocket and placed that whole piece aside to work on the card.
For the card, I started with a kraft cardstock base, added a layer of white cardstock and then die cut using the Stitched Rectangular Frame Die the top layer. I did that 2 times so I could use a coordinating piece of designer paper for the under layer. To see the under layer, I used the More Stitched Edges Die.
The sentiment was then stamped onto the card front, the snowman and pocket adhered as well with some foam to pop them up.
For the finishing touches, I added some snowflake die cuts using the Winter Flake Dies and some Nuvo enamel dots.

Now for the entire release.....
