Throwback Thursday with My Creative Time

Welcome to this weeks Throwback Thursday Challenge with My Creative Time.  This time you can use any older cartridge you like but you must use the colors Green and Yellow somewhere in your project.  For my project I used Emma's Have Fun in the Sun stamp set.  This set contains so many cute sentiments it was hard to pick!!!



I used my Gypsy to weld the crab to the pail.  To get the packaging twine to "stick" where I wanted it to I just dabbed a little Zip Dry Glue on the twine and held it down for a few seconds.  I also used the Tonic distressing tool on the background paper.  I love that paper, it reminds me of a beach cabanna!

Materials:
Sentiment  - Have Fun in the Sun,  My Creative Time
Cricut Cartridges -  Life is a Beach for crab cut at 1.75"
                               Boys Will Be Boys for pail cut at 5"
New Leaf and Kraft Cardstock  -  PTI
Patterned Paper  -  Cotton Bloom Stack, DCWV
Packaging Twine
Gel Pen
Memento Black Tuxedo Stamp Pad
Tonic Distressing Tool
Here is a picture of the New Release stamp set I used!!! Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!


Please be sure to check out My Creative Time for the rest of the fabulous Design Teams projects.  Don't forget to link up Your project!  Thanks for stopping by today!
Love and Hugs,
Cathryn
