Don’t miss anything!! Scroll down

I have 2 posts! One a video- then another-is a sample of my challenge for Stampavie

I have LOTS of emails asking about my NEW! Team. HOLY MOLY you are all amazing. Im in awe of your work. This will be HARD!!

You have till the end of the week to get your links/samples to me.

This is what I am doing- so you need to be up to it if I contact you. We are mixing it up! If you can’t or don’t want to do this (since we aren’t JUST doing sketches) no problem ūüėÄ OK!

Starting May 2nd (I am already doing this now but won’t have the team till then)

My Time to Sketch-Week 1 of the month


My Time to Inspire- Week 2 of the month (Hosted by a different team member each month!) We will use a inspiration photo, that you will use to inspire your creation. This is the week of my template release so I will create a template sample for the countdown based on the inspiration piece!

My Timeless Templates Challenge- Week 3So you can all share your new creations following the latest release! There will be a challenge with the¬†use of a template! Don’t worry this challenge won’t be template specific! ANY TEMPLATE you want-but like our first one (inspired by bath product packaging) will have a challenge attached! So get those templates hot off your printer! Gifts will be made in advance now! LOL!


My Time to Color- Week 4

Sooooo-this group of challenges will be called My Time to Create Challenges (Those above will be my challenge titles)

I look forward to seeing what YOU can do!

Thanks for the encouragement and excitement for this new adventure.

¬†I’m looking forward to something new each week.

I got a video done! YEAH!! AND for MONDAY!! DOUBLE YEAH!

Now I know its not he flower one you are ALL waiting on, but that one will take some time! I did have it filmed but had a mishap.

¬†I have the intro done and editied¬†, then when I went to find and edit the flower tutorial, the actual tutorial accidentally got erased, when¬†I was video taping Amber riding her bicycle! I’d rather lose the flower thing which I can re-create, than my daughter’s video! I can recreate that moment.

You know whats funny si she is 4 and can ride a bike, but the other 2 won’t do it! Weird! Alexa is terrified (she has depth perception issues, where everything seems higher, and scarier) but Noah just isn’t interested.

Anywho…..this one uses a product called Fantasy Film. It is by Art Glitter

TRUST ME when I tell you, you don’t want to Google “fantasy film” OK! Just go to the site and look for where they sell it! LOL!

In the video I show you HOW to use, and¬† I also share how I custom color my film ūüėÄ Can you say LOVE IT!!

Here is the detail photo of the card sample using the Fantasy Film


Not the BEST photo-sorry! Bad lighting :C

My mojo is on a break :C My template release always sucks every last bit of mojo out of me for like a WEEK! On top of that Im always adding even MORE template ideas each month to the bunch we have. So, sometimes I can’t get out of TEMPLATE mode! I just love them SOOOOO much. I could make boxes ALL day ūüėÄ

OK back to the subject:

The butterfly is from a set called Butterfly Wings from CTMH¬†that Katie sent me, since she KNEW I’d love it. It was the Stamp of the Month for March, and sadly I got sick and had my surgery so am JUST getting around to using it-SORRY KATIE!!


So I kept this SIMPLE! Plain actually. But with a STUNNING butterfly why over do it?!

Anyway, its a super set! I used my Sketch 31for it. Told ya I had a sample! LOL! I just wanted to share the video with it.

Sentiment is a SU! set. Butterfly of Happiness I believe.

I have tons planned for videos, but have just been SO busy! Kids are on vacation-CRAZY!! But I WILL somehow some way share it all eventually.

I have so much fun SHOWING you what Im doing as oppose to just typing it all up!!

I didn’t do an “intro” since its a basic technique. Why listen to me blabber on for 2 minutes! LOL! You know how I can talk! I spared you all my banter during one part, and fast forwarded myself too. I think its hilarious! I couldn’t figure out HOW to MUTE me! LOL! So I added some crazy music to it too. So be ready to turn down the volume. I love watching myself in fast forward! LOL! I wish I could actually work that fast, as I feel like my brain moves that quick, but my poor body can’t keep up. Thank goodness for notebooks. Pages of chicken scratched ideas, from my awakenings at¬†2 am-seriously!

I also wanted to let it be visible on YouTube for everyone-so I hope you like it. You have NO IDEA how long that simple 8 minute clip takes to edit! OYE!!

So I hope you enjoy it!

Tomorrow begins the peeks for Pink Cat Studio!!

Till then

Peek A Bunny-SAVE Challenge #2

Apr 20, 2009 Author: mytime | Filed under: Cards, Stampavie


Today is the Stampavie Challenge!!

Use pink, brown & green (optional) in your creation!

To enter your creations, for a chance to WIN some CANDY, and see the design team samples


If you are looking to find a place to buy them—->CLICK HERE!

Now its my turn to share my sample


This is Peek a Bunny

I decided that the pink and green would be my focus with touches of brown-on the bunny. This was actually my favorite image from the NEW! Spring Rachelle Anne Miller release. I can’t tell you how much I LOVE her stuff. ADORABLE!!!

This bunny was begging to be colored.

Here is a detail photo


I pierced a “leaf” and added some flowers that looked similar to the ones I colored on the bucket.

I also scored a double line down the side of my card for some interest on the card.

The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink-Around and About

I think its definitely cute! I love making all occasion cards. Handy for any time.

Well you better get started on the challenge! I have one more vidoe post to type up!

Be back soon
