My Creative Time: Scrapping The Little Things

Hi, today is Scrapping the Little Things over on the My Creative Time Blog. I have created a Smash Book page using one of the photos from my weekend in Paris. I can not believe it has been over ten years since I was there. Time definitely has flown. That day was so very hot!! I remember the people selling bottled water below the Eiffel tower making  a lot of money. Even though it was hot, we climbed the tower as far as you could. Many were taking the first elevator. So grateful that I got to have an amazing experience in Paris that I will never forget. 

On my page, I have used this month's stamp of the month, Springtime in ParisIf this set has been on your wish list, you can pick this set up here at a discount price HERE! This set will be on sale for the entire month of August! The sale will end on August 31, 2015 @ 12:00am PST!  

I first matted my picture with a couple of different card stocks. I wasn't too happy that the picture didn't print very well with the effects I had added onto it from Picmonkey. Though that's what you get when you use a cheap printer. I added the word "love" onto the picture from the Family Is Everything Stamp Set. I love the font!! Then I added the fun little stitching at the top using a die from the new Too Cute Too Spook Stamp Set.

Before I added the matted picture onto my page, I stamped on the word "Paris" from the Springtime in Paris set and accented it with stamps from the Build A Postcard Stamp Set. The lines I added the bottom of the page were also from the Build A Postcard Stamp Set. Instead of writing everything in, I added a few stamps from the Springtime in Paris as well as the date using the Type Calendar Stamp Set. I think I will add some more lines when I go back to write in a few things. 

To create my embellishment, I layered the Stitched Doily Die in vellum along with the pink card stock Bunch of Stitched Doily Die. I used my Cricut to cut a circle that would fit just how I wanted in the doilies. I used another beautiful stamp from the Springtime in Paris set to create a pretty background for the tower die cut. I stamped and embossed the tower also from this set using Recollection's Gold embossing powder. I added a pretty Jr. Rolled Flower to the center of the tower. Once I had everything adhered to my page, I finished it by adding some mini gold sequins all over the page. 

Well that's my project. If you don't have the Springtime in Paris set, I highly recommend that you add this beautiful set to your MCT collection. Plus, you still have time grab it at a wonderful price. The sale will end on August 31, 2015 @ 12:00am PST!
