This little light of mine…………….. Im gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.

Not sure WHERE I remember that song from. Maybe church? Its one of those, that you know it but you don’t really know it, cause that is the ONLY part I remember! LOL!

That was what went through my head for an hour and half, over and over, as I created these projects 😀

Before I go forward-dont miss your chance to win some MYTIME MAIL——>HERE<—–. All this talk about “lights”, made me remember to remind you. I have read EVERY comment, and each one has made my face “light up”! Literally! Thank you SOOOOO much!

I am also going to pick a random winner tomorrow, for THIS post, and that person will receive ALL 5 items made by me in this post. So don’t forget to comment if you would like to have them.

OK, now I want to take the time to introduce you to the BRAND SPANKIN NEW!!! company I am guest designing for called Our Daily Bread Designs. Please read through her site for stamp sets/prices/shipping and other info. This set will be availablele soon. I believe she will slowly add to her collection.

 The owner/designer is named Kelley Holland, and you can view her blog–>HERE. She has been so sweet to work for. 

Kelley contacted me a few months ago, and told me her vision, for her company. I liked what she represented!

I was so excited to be able to try and help her out, but cannot commit to another Design Team full time, so I am going to guest design for her. All this design work for me is PURE fun, joy and play!! I love it and enjoy it, and do my best to KEEP it that way. I don’t want it to become “work” and stress over it, even though I take it all very seriously. Does that make sense???


 She already has a team of AMAZING girls, that I’m sure will really rock out these sets! So check them out HERE

When I saw this first set Light of the World, I went crazy! I knew she would be onto something here! It also takes me back to being a child, and our family trips to the beach in Maine. GREAT memories. I still take my own children there every year.

I hope you enjoy what I made during my “break in” of the set.

You know I don’t own ANY lighthouse images? I had an old SU! one YEARS ago, but sold it. I missed it, after it was gone!

Anyway here is what I did with it-

The top card of this post, was done using twinkling H2O’s, so this really shimmers!! Its very simple, and you may not see, the lighthouse was cut out, and placed on dimensionals. Simple yet striking in person. I wanted simple black and white so the soft/shimmery colors would just POP!

Next up is my FAVORITE

mytime-lighthouse-gift-box.jpg Sandy Beach set

I so love this because it has real seashells in the corner (from my honey moon in Hawaii, and the husk from a coconut tree on the beach). Its just got a very earthy, beachy feel to it, with like colors.

The box was from a set of Wedding Favor boxes at Target-40 pieces on SALE for $6!!!!! Now that ROCKS! All I did was stamp the light house with my soft sky ink, and pop the box together-seriously too longer to clean the stamp, then to create the box! LOL!

My next card also uses the same beachy colors.

This one the main image was done on textured sky cardstock, and colored with some Copic’s but mainly watercolor crayons-left unblended. So a very different look for all 3 card creations here. I love the POP of color this has. You can see the lighthouse is white in person.

Very clean and simple, yet soothing. I like the softness of the vellum layer, as oppose to the heaviness of an additional layer for my sentiment.I feel it would have overpowered my softness of my main image.

Lastly- I HAD to do a candle!!!! It smells amazing too! Just stamped the lighthouse in Bordering Blue, then the words in Brocade Blue.


Thats it for today!

Hope you are inspired by this set, and it finds a place in your collection! It can really make some nice things to “brighten” someone’s day, or give them the lift they need.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on it.

I still have some MFT and a bunch of other stuff to share so stay tuned OK!

Till tomorrow!!!
