We’re Back…And Better!

OH.EM.GEE!!! I think we're back folks! We have switched hosting sites and I can see that several of you have ordered the freebies already! Wow! And the coolest thing...the site appears to be running faster. Yay! Speed is always a concern for me and over the past year my now former hosting site kept blaming it on this or that or telling me I needed to upgrade my services. No one would ever listen to me when I would say 'it didn't use to be that way and nothing has changed on my end.' This is sure-fire proof that it [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Take A Picture

Confession time. I take too many pictures. But is there really such thing as too many photos? I'd rather have too many than not enough. It helps me remember the moment. We're not even at the end of June, and I can't tell you how many photos I've taken! I've been doing a little thinking on that...and that's why today's freebie is a camera with one of the most typical sayings associated with photo taking.     This fun little design can be cut on your Silhouette or Cricut, or print it as a card for Project Life or to include in [...]

What Way Of Memory Keeping Works?

I love that there are so many ways to document your life. It can be as simple as writing in a journal to Project Life + putting photos in pockets to getting artistic and painting on a page. There's a style for everyone. I definitely side on the simple, but I love adding a bit of flair here and there. That works for me. And so when Marcy shares her pages, it resonates with me on so many levels. Take a look at what she has for us today.   I love how she combines her daily planning with a [...]

27 | Sheree Forcier

We have another treat for you today from Sheree Forcier! Sheree first dazzled us with her gorgeous travelers notebook spread featuring the Travelers Pack: Splendid kit (here). And now today she has another amazing creation using the same kit on a scrapbook page! Take a look.           Incredible, right? I love how she stamped the little camera and popped it off the page. And all the bits of layering....sigh. This page just says happiness to me. Let's see what Sheree has to say: I love the that Traveler's Packs aren't just for traveler's notebook spreads!  I've used [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Popsicles

I don't know about you guys, but we eat a lot of popsicles this time of year! My California nephew was here with us last week and we introduced him to Otter Pops. Do you guys have those? He'd never heard of them. They were a staple when my kids were growing up! With that refreshing treat on my brain, I felt it needed to be a weekly freebie!     What started out as a design for cutting soon turned into my first watercolor experience! With brush and paints in hand, I started to play. I've never really done anything [...]

Mickey Mouse | Kim Jeffress

Is it really the last day of the week? Say it ain't so! Does anyone else's summer seem to be flying by, yet it seems like we just barely started? I feel like I've crammed so much into two weeks that I hope it never really stops. The more opportunities I have to get outside, the better! :) Alas, it truly is the last day of our week with Kim Jeffress. I'm so sad. I've just enjoyed the heck out of having her here and sharing her amazing creations. Shall we look at her final piece?       Okay....seriously??? [...]

Team Heidi | Kim Jeffress

It's another beautiful day with another beautiful page from our guest designer, Kim Jeffress! Aren't her pages just amazing? Take a look at today's....and those ginormous roses! (Yellow roses are my favorite, in case you didn't know. ;) )         Let's hear what Kim has to say: If you know me you know I love the color yellow so the Travelers Pack: Splendid was just the perfect kit to work with. I printed that stunning yellow floral print onto 12 x 12 cardstock then trimmed it down a touch and adhered it to my white background cardstock. I [...]

Aloha | Kim Jeffress

Today we have more gorgeousness from the lovely Kim Jeffress! And once again....mind blown. Love how she's cut the Aloha and backed it with the Hawaiian print. Take a look...       Here's what Kim has to say: I printed off the gorgeous hibiscus paper from the Travelers Pack: Paradise kit onto 12 x 12 white cardstock as a starting point for my layout. I then use the Aloha word from the Beach Vibes digital stamp set in my silhouette cameo to cut my title and backed the cut file with the printed paper. I used some bright pops [...]

Guest Designer | Kim Jeffress

Oh boy, oh boy! Do we have an awesome week in store for you all! I have admired this girl's work for a very long time. She's so talented! And one day last spring, I ran into her at Blue Lemon with Heidi Swapp. What the heck? Of course I've known Heidi a for many years, but I was tickled pink to get to meet--live and in person--this sweet little Aussie girl. I love listening to her talk! We did a bit of chit chat and went on our merry way to eat with our friends. But after we both had [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Pine Tree

You can never have too many trees. My dream job would be to live on property where I could grow trees for people and just exist with them all around me. Wouldn't that be dreamy? Alas, I'll just have to get my fix from the trees around me, whether it's near home or far into the mountains...or here as a cut file with a bonus little print.     You can pick up this awesome skinny pine tree today in the STORE. It's free all week long...until Sunday night. I'm now looking forward to making my way to some far-off trees [...]
