February 25 (6am UK/12 AM CST-March 10 (6am UK/12 AM CST), 2022

DT inspiration projects are awesome and show such variety for the different technique options of embossing:

(Dry embossing on the blue cardboard and heat embossing on the white background)

Thanks to all the design team members for their terrific embossed projects!

My Time To Craft challenge blog doesn't have sponsors or prizes however we do pick the Top 3 entries (selected by a DT member) and they can put our special honor badge on their own blog for bragging rights. So we look forward to seeing what you find time to craft that shows embossing.

Use the Inlinkz address below to link your blog showing your project photo.


Best wishes!

If you participated in #475 All You Need Is Love, the Top 3 picks will be announced in a separate post. 

Find time to craft.

MTTC #475 All You Need Is Love Theme for 11 Feb to 24 Feb 2022

 Hello! This is My Time To Craft challenge blog's #475 competition! The theme is "All You Need Is Love", which is a great song and can be a broad topic. So it doesn't have to a Valentine's card. Think of birthday love, wedding/anniversary love, new baby love, just because love, etc. 

MTTC blog owner Shell is on a blogging break and so is DT Janice. DT members Tracey M and Caz have stepped down from the team along with Jackie (who did work ahead). I/Becca have recruited Granmargaret to join us from the MTTCC DT to help plump our team numbers and hold off from doing a DT call for the time being. We had 5 crafters participate in our short week long challenge #474 as we've transitioned from Shell's announcement about taking a break and her agreement for me/Becca to be her temporary manager. After some hiccups figuring out Inlinkz, I was able to do a short term #474 and to get #475 released on February 11th as had been in our team schedule. The Top 3 for #474 were announced in a separate post on February 10th.

My Time To Craft #475 theme is "All You Need Is Love"

Inlinkz will be open from February 11, 2022 at 6pm CST until Thursday, Feb. 24, 2022 at 6pm CST.

Wherever you are living in the world, we hope our crafting followers will have creative mojo to participate and possibly be selected for Top 3 bragging rights. Rules for participating are located on another page (which we try to keep it easy-peasy). 

Our recent times to craft resulted in these DT inspirations:

Aren't these DT inspiration projects fabulous?!!! Such variety and the team is scattered around the world, too! Love for papercrafting binds us together! --from Becca & the rest of the MTTC DT

We're hoping you are finding time to craft!
Join us by using the linking tool featured below here.

EDITED: please note, on Feb 23rd the max number of 50 entries was reached under the limited plan I'm /Becca using currently. If you want to participate and be considered for Top 3, please post your blog link in the comments section. THX!

Thanks for stopping by! Our wish is that our blog followers find time to craft this week just like us on the design team for My Time To Craft challenge blog!

MTTC #474 Top 3 Announcement

 We at MTTC are so appreciative of the 5 crafters who participated in our short recovery challenge #474!

#474's theme was Black and White

MTTC blog owner Shell announced she was taking a break and then I asked to manage temporarily and she agreed last Friday morning! So I quickly tried to figure things out for a challenge blog and messed up on the linking tool, but after delays, I managed to get Inlinkz to work! Thanks for the brave 5!

4 crafters were able to use the Inlinkz and 1 crafter posted her blog link in the comments section. 

Out of those 5, I picked the Top 3. Listed by their participation #, they are:

#1 Black and White (by Christine)

#3 Pia

#4 Ma-Mi

Congrats! Please copy and paste the Top 3 badge to post on your personal blogs.

The timing of our challenge blog posting reveals will be changed due to me being in a different part of the world compared to other DT members (England to India to Australia to USA and in between)! So expect #475 to be reveal at 6pm CST Friday Feb 11. It's a good one so please check back. On behalf of the crew, with our thanks, Becca

MTTC #474 Black and White Theme for 4 Feb to 10 Feb 2022

Apologies to our challenge blog followers: the blog owner, Shell, is taking a break from blogging.

She's agreed to my offer to manage MTTC until she returns. So I'm going to offer the challenge theme we had planned for last week to start today and go until next Thursday in order to get this blog back on track with our schedule for every other Friday reveals. 

#474 Black and White Theme

any occasion

just stick to black and white, avoid/no other colors, shades/tones, or metallics 

Inspiration cards from the MTTC Design Team:

Thank you so very much to the other design team members who had crafted early and had worked ahead within our design team behind the scenes blog! There have been several challenge blogs that have closed recently and I hated MTTC (and MTTCC) being stopped or on vacation for 6 months. I hope our faithful followers will still participate.

If you were a #473 Floral theme participant, the Top 3 results have been posted. Look at a post between then and now to see who gets bragging rights and can snag the Top 3 badge to copy and paste to their own blog!  

My Time to Craft #474
Challenge theme = Black and White cards (any occasion; only black and white; no other colors or metallics; try to avoid gray, too, if you can)
Friday, February 4, 2022 @ 3:30pm CST until 
 Thursday, February 10, 2022 (6pm CST)

linking will be closed on Thursday, February 10, 2022 at 6pm CST

sorry for the problem with the process of fixing on Sat Feb 5 at 1:55pm CST...check back...Becca

fixed hopefully on Sunday, Feb 6 at 10:50 am CST....good luck and our apologies...Becca

Apologies and re-start to begin very soon for MTTC

 Hello! Welcome to My Time To Craft challenge blog!

The owner, Shell, is taking a break from blogging and has agreed to let me, Becca S from the DT, manage the blog(s) until she returns. 

To get the DT and participants back on our original schedule, I'm hoping to reveal #474 that should have started last Friday to sometime today or no later than tomorrow (whenever I get it all figured out)!

To get back to that schedule, when #474 is released, it will only be for 1 week/5-6 days in order to retain our every other Friday time periods. So with that anticipation, the theme will be Black and White. Stay tuned for that post to be revealed very soon.

Thanks to our MTTC followers. We hope you are excited for this renewed possibility of bragging rights for Top 3.

Finding time to craft,

Becca S
