My Creative Time DT Call

I have to say there isn't anything in the world of scrapbooking that I have anticipated and wished for more than this DT call. As Emma said there is alot of stamp lines out there and all of them have a DT but I haven't wanted to be in any of them but when this one came along I was jumping out of my seat. I know this is a long shot but if you don't try you never know! I called a close friend and collaborated with her on what I should do because I know how great her current design team is. I only have a few stamp sets so I was limited to what I could do but I love this project!

I knew the project just had to be the best thing I could do. I went and used Cricut Craft room to get my sizing right for my project (yes I own a gypsy but no I can't use it well!) So the craft room was excellent for seeing what sizes would fit in the card size I was using. I used every single machine I own for this project...my imagine for printing out the paper and cutting some of the items. I used my original expression to cut most of the objects and then used my E2 so I could utilize my tags bags and more cart that is loaded on my gypsy. The gypsy is really a decoration in my room for now. But at least I did use it for this!


As always my picture could be better. My daughter has loaned me her great (and quite expensive cause I bought it I know) Nikon D5000 camera to use for a while but she failed to put the charging cord in with the camera! So I was forced to use my digital camera which is fairly new but I really dislike it and the quality. One day I may get the cord for the other. If your grown children are anything like mine they forget to do what you asked them even when they are older and should be able to "remember", I believe my daughter has "selective" memory!

I chose to use my absolute favorite cartridge (which I haven't even used yet so this is the first project with it) Camping critters!!!

My base card size is 4 1/2 x 5 (Kraft paper)
Inside paper (cloud) is 1/4" smaller on each side (Cloud paper made from Imagine Best Friends Cart)
I Cut the Deer at 2.5" From Camping Critter
Little Pond of Water cut at .8 on my imagine (This is from Create a Critter)
For the Green Grass and I also used this color for the fish I used my imagine and for the darker one I used RGB code 107-142-35 and for the lighter green I used 154-205-50
I used Emma's stamp set "Favorite Sayings" for the sentiment.
Added googly eyes (didn't have smaller ones!)
I inked the cream color portion of the deer with a creamy brown, darker brown for the rest.

Here are two other projects I made in the past with Emma's stamps!
