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 [...]

Guest Designer | Sheree Forcier

This is a mighty fine day folks! We have a visitor in our little KBS world and I'm just a bit excited about it! Everyone say hello to Sheree Forcier! I've been admiring her work on Instagram and was so excited when she said yes to wielding her magic with KBS goodies. Take a look and ooh and ahh just like I did. Love this TN spread!           Here's a bit from Sheree: Traveler's Notebooks have become one of my absolutely favourite ways to record moments I want to remember.  This spread is all about Mother's Day this year. I [...]

Cascade Springs

It's amazing how much there is to do in such a short distance along the 20-mile stretch of Alpine Loop that travels from Provo Canyon, through Sundance, up and over and out American Fork Canyon. And one of those pretty little things is Cascade Springs.   Each day seven million gallons of water reach the surface through the impermeable rock to form the springs. They are small in height, but grand in its natural design. It's kind of amazing to see so much water travel down a hillside--finding any path it can to make it's way down. Depending on the [...]

White On White…It’s Pure Delight!

White on white is my favorite color combo. Is that really a considered a color combo? Well, it is in my coloring book. And today we have a most excellent execution of said color combo from our Miss Paige. Will take your breath away, it will.             Here's Paige's process: This is one of those times where I didn't have an exact idea in my mind when I started, it all just sort of evolved from one step to the next! I keep a few of my favorite cut files in a folder on my [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Dandelion

It's true folks. I had the most glorious and refreshing week camping and hanging with two of my dearest friends and the girls in our family--including our daughters, daughters-in-law, granddaughters and girl friends of daughters. It's a tradition we've been doing since 2009. Lots of love (and food) here. Love of all these amazing women and the love of the magnificent land where we live. My love of this world and all its offerings is no secret. So with a week like last week I was obviously inspired to make a dandelion for this week's summer freebie.   You can [...]

Kick Off Summer With A Weekly Freebie + Sale!

Oh my goodness gracious! I've been waiting so long to say this.... Let the summer begin!   The anticipation for summer days can be agonizing! You look forward to summer breezes, days at the pool, garden vegetables, being outdoors, no schedules...that's the summer life.  And while I was always excited for summer to come when my kids were in school, I think as I've gotten older the winter blues have expounded that desire for summertime and getting outdoors. So we're kicking off our summer here in fine fashion! Every Monday through Labor Day there will be a new Weekly Summer Freebie [...]

The Uintas + Provo Falls

The Uintas are a mountain range about an hour east from where we live. The 40-mile Mirror Lake Scenic Byway goes from Kamas, UT to Evanston, WY and it is beautiful! You can only drive it through the warmer months, from about June to October. I have visions of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers when they finally exclaim 'the pass is open!' The highest point of driving is near Bald Mountain, which is 10,000 feet. So it's up pretty high. Our California sea-level nephews found the oxygen a little lacking when hiking around a little farther down at Provo Falls. [...]
