SIMPLE Sketch-

Jan 19, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Saturday Sketch

mytime-love.jpg Circle of love

I figured MOST of my sketches have funky layer’s. This time I felt like we should KEEP IT SIMPLE!!!

I love clean and simple. I am also planning on “stepping it up”! LOL! I want to do another card layered, with the same sketch idea.

I love incorporating circles in my designs, so thought this card would be a great one for today.

I DO agonize about the weekly sketch, as I try to make it fun, fresh, easy, and exciting. I did ponder if this was TOO plain. But I will let you decide 😀

So, for THIS card, I was re-organizing my “supplies”. This is something I like to do often.

My space has to be clean and spotless for me to get creative. Sometimes my supplies in bins get unorganized. So it was time to reclaim my totally organized space!

I was also inspired because one of my reader’s asked how I know what I have, and how I find it all! LOL!

Well I do have “bins” for each thing. Such as -BLING has a bin, fun flock has a bin, stickers, have a bin, rub on  also have a bin, acrylic frames and ghost shapes and the like have a bin-you get the idea. SO things have their place.

As I organized, I came across the red sticker you see in the upper left. They were in the Target $1 spot like 2 years ago! I know I hoard alot :C So I figured it would be fun to use it. I had forgotten all about it actually.

So I used my Green Grass set, which I am SADLY realizing as I type this-has been discontinued :C It was one of her Alpha’s, in which the name escapes me now. But any word could do the same thing. She has a bunch of sentiments/words/alpha sets.

So I stamped the “love” word several times onto white card-stock.

The what I did can be done with any word. I used the “love” sentiment, and stacked it onto each other, coloring 1/2 the letters in a darker color to create a “block” word that says love, once stacked on each-other. I made it POP out at you, by using a making memories page pebble.

I then used my Coluzzle to cut the circle. I stamped a large frame circle (PTI Borders and Corners circle set) with white craft ink, onto my base, then fit the stamped circle into it.

Added my sticker, and ribbon.

I then did the same “love” sentiment in the lower right corner.

Now please use whatever you want in YOUR circle! You can use images, may your own paper, whatever you choose.

I hope you have time to try it out. If you do send me a link here so we can all see YOUR take on the sketch! I HAVE NO “rules” about my sketches, just that you have fun. Use them how you wish.

As always, thanks for reading.

I am off to my LSS AGAIN! I may take Amber with me 😀 She loves to shop too.

Tomorrow is the 20th-which means it is  Dirty Challenge time! All past and present Dirty Dozen girls get together with a “theme” for a challenge! So check back then!!!

Till tomorrow.

J-Just Because

Jan 19, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Home decor/3-D items, Uncategorized

So, its time for my last letter. The letter “J”.

Before I go into all my “J” for Julie ramble, I hope all my PSF’s know it was hard to pick only a few to shower with “mytime” mail. I tried to spread the love to PSF’s whom I had not ever done much for, but are deserving all the same.

If I had the time I would make each PSF a letter. But its not a perfect world :C. So I hope none of you feel sad or slighted in anyway, as each of you are important 😀 I also appreciate all your friendships.

OK So upon my search I realized that there are hardly any GOOD words that start with J! WOW!

Here are some random words-BUT we wont say all of them are associated with Julie OK!

Jezebel, Juicy (HA! HA!), Jiminy, Jeepers, Jealous, Justify. Jump, Jinx, Joker, and Jewels!

But one GOOD word was JOY!

She has brought alot of JOY to us.

Did you know that she bought Alexa is “talking, light up Tinkerbell wand” all the way from Disney! Now she doesn’t live there, and it kept going off through their travels. She begged her hubby NOT to chuck it out the window! Everytime the wand goes off-(usually off one of the other kids heads) I remember her story. Alexa LOVES the wand BTW.

Thank you Julie for everything. Here is Julie’s Letter-


I think this was my favorite of them all! Because it was so different, and maybe because it had butterflies! AND Julie’s favorite color was purple-just like me 😀

I used the “Joy” , which is lightly stamped in the bkgd from the PTI set Serene Snowflakes, and the sentiment is from Green Thumb.

The butterflies are from my favorite Stampin Up! set-Garden Whimsy . Of course there is dazzling diamonds on the wings. I had to add Prima’s to coordinate.  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Now Julie wanted to learn to sew! So, I did some on her letter, and sent her one of the famous sewing machine’s I got for myself! Sorry people, I got the last 2 they had and the other was MINE!

So I hope she liked her package of goodies.

I’ll be right back with todays sketch!

Till then
