Back To Reality…And Winter.

If you follow me on social media, you know I've been in Florida this week. My daughter served her LDS mission there and it was cut short--and sudden--due to some medical issues last summer. So when I happened to find tickets to Orlando for $247 round trip from Utah (thank you JetBlue), I knew we needed to go for her. So Zach, Jordan and I went and we stayed in St. Augustine a few days. Beautiful place! I plan on sharing more details and photos here, but having got home after midnight and not really getting to sleep until 1:30, [...]

Isn’t it Lovely?

When I concepted (yeah, it's a word) the 'Little Words', I'd imagined them being used in their entirety as a background. You can't imagine my delight when I saw this little number from our Miss Maggie! I just love to see what this fabulous creative team will do with the KBS designs! [ Designs | Lovely Little Words (background) ] Gorgeousness! love. Here's some words from Maggie: My layouts are usually created around photos of my kids. And by "usually," I mean "always." But, with Valentine's Day right around the corner, I thought it would be appropriate to create a page [...]

Just the Thought of Spring…

….makes me smile. The thought of warm weather, seeing green all around and pretty blue skies sounds ever-so lovely. So when I saw this gorgeous spread from Layle, it was like a brush of fresh air. (And boy do we need fresh air 'round these parts with the icky inversion we get each winter). If you're in the same boat Layle and I both are--living in Utah and all--take a gander at this and dream of great things to come. [ Designs | This+That: Spring (hello spring + grow stacked words) / Click (this day) / Love This Photo ] ahhhhhhhh…. Beautiful, yes? [...]

Organization Tip #35: Making Lists

By the title you would think I have 34 previous numbered tips, but it's just a random number pulled out of a hat. Surely I must have shared at least 34 tips by now. ;) Setting the Stage For years and years, I used notebooks to carry all my ideas in one location. They are quite handy and were so awesome to hold many thoughts in a given location. Composition books are a favorite as far as notebooks go. Small. Bendable. Comes in so many colors and patterns. Dreamy. I have an addiction on those really. I don’t think I [...]

The View

Nope. I'm not talkin' about all the broo-ha-ha going on in daytime television. You won't find Rosie or Whoopi here folks. What you will find is a wonderful 'perspective' coming from Laura. It's a fabulous idea! [ Designs | Pack Your Bags (the view) / Storyboard Instagram Style (photo template) ] Here's what Laura has to say: A while back, I had been searching thru Kerri's cut files in my Silhouette library and came across one from the Pack Your Bags kit that said "the view". It might have come from a travel related kit, but it immediately gave me an [...]

Sharing Some Love

Nothing says 'I Love You' like a printed word strip that actually says 'I Love You'. :) Which brings us to today's brand new kit: These are set up just like the Merry Little Words. So here’s how they work: There are three styles, white, colored and distressed. The first two come in the form of cut files (and PNG) so you can change the colors to whatever tickles your tinsel. It comes with a ‘frame’ file for Print+Cuts so that you don’t have to rely on the boxes to cut. Because if you do use the boxes, you’ll get [...]

Where Are We Headed?

We’re a few days into our new year already. (And I will neither confirm nor deny that I was looking for sandals the other night.) There is so much to look forward to for this brand new year (like spring, ha ha), but there are things that didn’t get done before the last year ended and need to be rounded up now. What on earth am I talking about, you say? Well, to say the last three months of 2014 were challenging is putting it mildly...especially the last five weeks of the year. I won’t go into details, but needless [...]

Hello New Year…and Last Year

As you may have noticed, I love numbers and words. They 'speak' volumes to me. And including a date on a page is not only informative, but it can be a wonderful embellishment! For the past few years, I've made a 'year' kit. Something happened in 2014. I don't even know what, so don't ask. But I never got one made. So this year, we're doing a little two-fer with a kit honoring 2015 and 2014. Not only is there quite an assortment of things to choose from to use all by their lonesome, but they work together too! Here's [...]

I Have A Problem

I can admit it. I have a 'creative A.D.D.' issue. It's a result of having too many ideas in your head that are bursting to come out. Or because when you're working on one idea, you're sparked with another idea and 'the other' is something quicker to create, so you do that first. Welcome to my life. Here is today's ADD moment:   I couldn't help myself. It had to be done. And you probably think I spent a lot of time creating a hand. Well, here's a little trade secret: It's my real hand. Took a picture of it in front [...]
