this+that: family . . . break it down

Price: $15 How To Use The Kit You can use this kit with many of the digital craft cutters out there, such as Silhouette, Pazzles and Cricut. Anything that can use an SVG/DXF/AIv8 file. If you are using Cricut, you'll need to use something like older versions of Sure Cuts A Lot (SCAL) or Make The Cut (MTC). These programs allow you to use SVG files with your Cricut. And if you don't have a digital craft cutter? No worries. You can create it digitally! THIS POST has some great information on how to do that. Distribution and Use of the File I've had [...]

this+that: family

It's finally here! Yippee! I was so excited at how fast this came together (as opposed to last month's kit) and that I was going to get it done early and then a multitude of things came along. Still, I am happy that it came together quickly for a change. Maybe it had something to do with the fact that I'd actually started jotting down notes and a picked color scheme for it a couple months ago too. ;)   Here are a few tips about the kit: The Spool. My original intent for this shape was something like this. [...]

a sneak and a freebie

Okay, so this week I'm a little slow still. Well actually, truth be told, my mind is going crazy on next month's kit and I just couldn't stop yesterday to do a "Friday" freebie. But Saturday's still good, right? :) To download this free shape, click HERE. I just had this loopy frame in my head and had to get it out of my system. Or maybe it's just representative or Freudian of the directions I've been going the past week. ;) This is really great for a photo or a journaling square too! Designed to use with a 4x6 [...]

borderlines #2

Goodness gracious . . . I go away for a few days and look what happens to me. Back to back kits! My brain just doesn't stop--even on vaca. It's sad really. ;) Here's a new Borderlines kit! (Comes in STUDIO/SVG/DXF/AIv8/PNG for Silhouette, Cricut, Pazzles...and all that jazz) Price: $7 I've had some requests for the 'birds on a wire' from the Lucky kit to be sold separately. Okay, so this is kind of separately. ;) But there's a couple versions there. I think it would be fun to add a title to the one with the birds all on the [...]

gettin’ back in the groove!

Holy cannoli! What a great few days we have had! I must say, I've been rather spoiled just hanging with all sorts of family and friends--and even more so loving being with my boy! I think we are all beyond exhausted. But we've had a fabulous time listening to story after story from Zach. He spoke in church on Sunday--so did Jordan--and they both did wonderfully. Many friends and family came to listen and it was just lovely! Needless to say, now that the week-long party is over, it's time to get back to business. I apologize for not answering [...]

the day he left…

I was uploading all Zach's photos to Costco this last week. Uhhh....1500 of them. Yeah, you heard me. And that's not even counting the last six months or so. While I'd originally planned to drop them into page protectors and have it ready before he came home, I had a better thought to wait for him to come home so we could put them in together as a family and he could talk about them. (Also, this lets him pick the ones he wants on display where there may be a couple of the same shot involved.) Anyway, came across [...]

taking a little break

Hey all! I'm here, but not really. ;) Got much to do in the next couple days before my boy comes home from his mission on Wednesday.I'll still keep an eye out on sending files, but I'm having some computer issues there too. My Airport Card on my Mac (wireless network) says it doesn't have one anymore. Just stopped working. So I'm back to my PC for email (and all things internet) until I can get it figured out. Argh. Don't need this problem.Life will get back to normal after this week . . . I think. ;)eta: i've fixed [...]

thought for the day

You know you're on the computer too much when you briefly have the thought to press Undo when you mess up the folding of a blanket or want to hit Search when looking for names on your old 8th grade junior high newspaper (found while cleaning).And as my daughter was Skyping with her friend who's at school in Idaho, I interrupted their conversation and said, "Back in the olden days we used to have to write letters when we wanted to talk to our friends." (Phone calls were too expensive.)
