My BIG Announcement!

This is a very happy day for me indeed! If you are new to my blog, hello! My name is Linsey, I have been papercrafting for as long as I can remember and fell in love with stamping some 4 years ago. I  enjoy creating handmade gifts and I love thrift store shopping for anything I can get my hands on to alter!  I am  a Cricut junkie all the way. My Expression, Cuttlebug and of course, trusty Gyspy are my best friends in my lil world-o-crafting! These tools combined with My Creative Time stamps makes for a beautiful relationship!

Well, I am nearly bursting with joy to announce that I am a new design team member for MY CREATIVE TIME! Emma V. Aguilar is a most incredible artist, Gyspy extraordaire and also owner and designer of the delightful My Creative Time stamp line.  It is a tremendous honor to be a part of this stellar team of designers and I am seriously pinching myself just to make sure that this is REAL!!! I know that Emma's fans are some of the most talented, fun and kind-hearted people in the crafting world and I can't wait to make many new friends, have tons of fun and laughs and be as inspired by YOU as I hope to be during my wonderful adventure with My Creative Time!
Here is my very first ever card stamped with Emma's stamps! These stamps are amazing, for real--they are etched from polymer of the highest quality--I know this because probably like yourself, I own many many stamps from many different companies and Emma's transfer ink so beautifully and clean to your paper, you hardly even need to clean the stamp afterwards, no kidding! I love that. Below, I played with All Around Accessories and All Around Birthday Time to create a fun dinosaur bday card for my nephew This is called a "telescoping card" and I simply followed Beate's easy tutorial HERE to make my own.  I love the versatility of Emma's sets, they mix n match so well together, it's super easy to coordinate images and sentiments from different sets into one project!

 Thanks so much for visiting me and allowing me to share my news! I look forward to what I know will be an unbelievable journey with My Creative Time and with YOU!
In celebration of My Creative Time and my happy news, I wanted to share a lil bit of crafty joy with you!
**BLOG CANDY TIME** Comment below and I will pick 1 random person to win the Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge tonight at Midnight. Now that's worth celebrating, right?!
Hope you have a DINO-MITE day!
