MCT: Scrapping the Little Things

Hi, today is Scrapping The Little Things over on the My Creative Time blog

The sentiment from the new MCT: You Make My Heart Smile Stamp Set, "You Hold The Key To My Heart", inspired me to create this layout!! My three wonderful blessings will forever hold the keys to mine! I am so grateful to be their mom!! 

So I snapped a few pictures of my kids and then started creating! I love how it turned out!! I ended up using 16 wonderful MCT sets!! I love that you can mix and match all of Emma's wonderful products!! They make it so much easier when creating a layout!!

I used the MCT: Stitched "Capture" Frame Die to frame each of their pictures. I wrapped twine around the base of the frames. I added silver foil keys from MCT: Chunky Jar Accessories to the twine as well.

I stamped each of their names onto a tag using the MCT: Just Simply Live Stamp Set. I love this font so much!! The tag is from MCT: Teeny Tag Layering Die which is the die of the month for January!! If this set of dies have been on your wish list, you can pick this set up here at a discount price. The sale will end on January 31, 2015 @ 12:00am PST!  

The large heart and the small black hearts are dies from the new MCT: Heart 2 Heart Frame Dies!! These are definitely a must have in my book!! I stamped the large red heart with the MCT: Grainy Wood Background Stamp and cut a key hole out using a tag from MCT: Chunky Jar Accessories. Then I added the white outline heart also from Heart 2 Heart.

The banner was made using the MCT: Build a Banner Kit. So nice to have the pattern stamps to make the red card stock look like it has a different textures with these stamps! I then added little hearts from the MCT: Seasonal Greetings Stamp Set

I started the layout title using the MCT: Uppercase Fun Dies and MCT: Lowercase Fun Dies. Then at the bottom I cut out three rectangles using the MCT: Square Stitched Goody Dies and MCT: Love to Learn Dies and Stamps. I had to create the word "to" from MCT: Oh Deer Stamp Set and MCT: A Thankful Heart Stamp Set so that it would match the font of the other words. The words "heart" and "my" are both from the new You Make My Heart Smile Stamp Set. I then adhered them carefully to each one.

I then added a few more hearts using MCT: Stitched Sweethearts Dies, MCT: Seasonal Greetings Stamp Set, and Heart 2 Heart Frame Dies. I stamped the pattern on the red hearts using the MCT: Build a Banner Kit.
