Guest Designer at My Creative Time

Hello my friends. My new job has not allowed much blogging time. Okay...none in a year but what a great way to come back. I will soon work from home and have lots more time to craft and blog rather than commute on the freeway and start my day at 4am.

Today I am the Guest Designer over at one of my favorite stamp and die cut designers MyCreativeTime.. I am featuring one of her new sets  Boughs of Holly from her October 2014 Release. You can get your own set HERE. It is one of 21 sets I used for this gift.

I made a poinsettia in copper and gold and placed it on a little tag. But what is inside the box? Hmmm...how about bringing back a vintage stationery box handcut and filled with 8 cards, 16 tags, 6 gift card holders, 6 notes, 3 pens and MyCreativeTime cuteness! My favorite part is adding the little pockets on the flap for some little tags and using the treat box for some mini pens. Both worked out perfectly for this. You could add gift cards to the little pockets too. Did you spy the little red bows?

 
Now I did feature holly and poinsettias but I
just love how all of these sets from MCT coordinate with sweet stitching and sizes that are compatible to work with each other. I used 21 different sets on this project! But in choosing a color scheme and using MCT products it went together super fast. I think it will make a great gift.
 
 
 
Now I just had to use the tulip from Stitched Pretty Flowers and Leaves. There are 6 cards using various designs with envelopes in this box.
 
 I made 6 Surprise Pop-Out Card Dies I am just fascinated with the design of this die. It is so fun and can hide a gift card in the back as it flips around.


A set of 6 of these sweet 3 x 3 Fancy Tri-fold Cards with coordinating envelopes.
 
6 large tags from Tag Die Layers
 
 
6 coordinating Gift Card Holders. A personal favorite and you can never go wrong with the scalloped and stitched circles and All Around Sentiments.
 
6 medium tags from Just Tags and the holly leaves cut in black.
 
 
 
12 mini tags from Stitched Round Tab Arrow and Tag Dies - this one featured on the gift package.
 
AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE!!
 
Thank you for stopping by.
I am anxious to read all your comments and see how you liked my project.
 
Here is a list of all the MCT products I used for this project:

  7. Wow, wow, wow!! I just love this beautiful gift set!!! Your papers are gorgeous that you used and I'm so impressed that you used 21 sets of MCT! This is an awesome gift for someone for sure. Did you use a tutorial on how to make this box or did you make up this box yourself? I'd love to see a tutorial by you if you made it yourself and if you didn't I'd love a link on how to make this. These would be great gifts for my DIL's. Hugs, Brenda

    1. I have never made a tutorial but it is on my bucket list. I will happy to send you the measurements if you like.You cut and score by hand. Use very strong double sided adhesive and strengthen points of potential stress.
