ME? Well, My name is Yvonne and I am a SAHM to FOUR beautiful, energetic, wild, lovable, crazy and amazing children. I am married to my best friend and the Love of my life. And I have a creative side that needed an outlet so I started this blog to share my creations with all of you. One day my oldest daughter, all of 6 years old, looked at me while I was crafting and said "you sure are One Creative Momma" and the name for my blog was born.

My Creative Time - Design Team Call!

I am so excited to be able to enter a project for Emma's very first "My Creative Time's Design Team Call!!!"  It would really be an honor to serve on Emma's team, creating fun new projects with her stamps and getting to know all of her fans that much better through her blog hops and challenges. I wish everyone the best of luck and to Miss Emma - I know you have a difficult job ahead of you so THANK YOU for giving us all the chance.

For this Design Team Call, Emma is requesting the following:

1. Should you be chosen as a member of my DT, you not join or currently be serving as a Design Team member for any other "Sentiment-Based" stamp companies during your term. Thanks so much for understanding! 
2. Also, you would need to have a blog to participate!
3. Please create ONE project for this call. It can either be a card, layout, home decor item or a 3-D item! 4. It would be nice to see my stamps used in your projects, but if you do NOT own any, please feel free to use what you have!

It would be a 3 month term, you will be required to do 1 to 2 blog hops a month & complete approx 8 (this is including sneak peek week) projects a month!

So without further ado here is my home decor project. 

My Family's Birthday calendar

Project Recipe:
My Creative Time Products:
My Gypsy
Cork bulletin board
Rainbow sheer ribbon - Ruffled
Black sheer ribbon for the hanger
SU and CTMH Inks
Hot glue and silver push pins

I created this label using my Gypsy, customizing the label size and welding the two phrases into one project title.

Each Month of the calendar is stamped using 1 of Emma's 5 XL Label borders - I love how different each one is and how it coordinates with the theme for each month.

On each calendar I marked the dates for every member in my family and on the back I wrote whose birthdays are on the dates marked on the front. The current month can then be displayed showing who's birthday is coming up and when it is.

On the border of the cork board I decided to add sheer rainbow ribbon that I ruffled using my sewing machine. On top of the ribbon I added Emma's scalloped and stitched circles with 6 different stamped sentiments and images.

I just love these new stamp sets - they're perfect for EVERY birthday in my family and all the other occasions throughout the year. This was a very fun project to make and has inspired more projects for the up coming holidays. Thank you for stopping by my blog and again good luck to all the entrants at My Creative Time.

Have a great day!

Diaper Bassinet!

~ Hello Friends ~
WHAT FUN I had making this adorable Diaper Bassinet last night!!! I was inspired by a project I saw on Pinterest and having recently potty trained my son, I had all the supplies to make one. 

To make this bassinet I used some Cardboard, Size 4 Diapers, Rubberbands and Wire edged ribbon. The final product measures 10"H x 9"D and 7"W and can be used as a gift, a table centerpiece at a shower or as a fun decoration in a new baby's room. I'm sure I'll be making a couple of these for my little one who's due in January! :)

I hope you were inspired by my project today, Thank you for stopping by and Have a GREAT WEEKEND!!!
