Christmas Greetings

This time last year was not my best year in the land of work. As a result, most of my time was spent working on a new site, but additionally, I had my son's wedding to prepare for. His (at the time) soon-to-be mother-in-law asked if I would design a large print of a quote she loved for the wedding. During the process, I thought, 'Hmm...this would be a really fun look for some Christmas songs.' It was coming up on the holiday season, after all. I whipped up one to see what it would be like and that's as [...]

Deck The Halls Stamps

We have another great showcase of the brand new stamps for this month. This time Paige is showing Deck The Halls off in fine fashion!       Oh what fun it is! I loooove this! This is freakin' adorable! Here's Paige to tell you how it all came together: I began by die cutting three Office Tags from smooth white cardstock and the hole punch part from kraft cardstock. For the floral wreath tag I stamped a whole bunch of leaves, pine cones, and holly berries in their usual colors (greens, reds, and browns) onto smooth white cardstock. Instead [...]

A Birthday Surprise!

This weekend I said hello to 51. What? I surely can't be that old. I swear I'm only like 31, right? I can't believe how fast time flies! I had a lovely weekend with my family. Friday night Dan and I went out to Chilis on Kass. Saturday (the official day) we all went to see a movie. I had to work a little and prepare a lesson for church, so it was pretty much like every other day. ;) Sunday Jordan made curry for dinner and we had chocolate cream pie for dessert. And Tuesday I go out with [...]

The Final Summer Freebie | Gift Card Striped Envelope

Labor Day has come and gone and summer is officially over--regardless of the 98 degree temps we seem to be having. Someone needs to tell Utah that this is a fall month and those are July temps. I want to thank you all for your enthusiasm over this summer's Weekly Freebie. It's been so incredibly fun to see thousands of you stop by this summer to pick the freebie--it's like my own little virtual vacation spot. So many people from so many countries have taken a 'summer vacation' here. People have visited from the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, [...]

Pretty In Pink…And Gold!

Did you happen to catch the new Hey Mama! kit on social media yesterday? It's here just in time for your Mother's Day. I decided to have a little fun with them last night and whipped up these cards in swift fashion and Minc'd away!   You turn anything shiny and it doubles the pretty factor, right? :) Want to make some of your own? It's super easy. Get the Hey Mama! kit (haha). Download both black borders here. These come from freepik.com and the original color versions can be found here and here. I modified it a little and [...]

What’s On Your Itinerary?

I think we live in a time of lists. Things to do. People to see. Agendas. Planning. Food. I don't think there will ever be a time when we don't make a list for something. And hubs hates it when I 'text him a list' for the grocery store. ;) That's why I think it's great way to document what's going on in your life--include all  the lists and itineraries and agendas. Check out what Miss Marcy did in her journal here!     [ Stamps |  Travelogue ]   Here's what Marcy has to say: So, I’m not the most technically [...]

Send A Card Today

If there's one thing that spring brings, it's color and freshness. My mind and soul actually crave it. I mean, how can you blame a gal after a few months of dull and grey. You want those pops of color again--inside your home, what you're wearing, outside everywhere you look...and even in your mailbox. How lovely would it be to receive a card like one of these from Miss Nichol! [ Designs | Borderlines #3.  Stamps | Fresh Air / For You ]   It's like a lovely breeze just drifted through your home if you opened one of these! [...]

Hand-stitched Holiday Cards

Hand-stitching is something I don't have the patience for (okay, maybe it's that I don't have the skill for it too). This look adds such a charming element to so many mediums, including paper. And nobody does hand stitching on paper better than our Miss Paige! Take a look at the amazing work she did on these holiday cards!   Here's what Paige has to say: I just LOVE the Better Not Pout and Oh What Fun holiday designs and chose one image from each set to turn into handmade cards. I used my Silhouette Cameo to draw the images onto [...]

Creative Holiday Giving

If there's one thing for sure, bags and cards are a much needed item around the holidays. And strangely, even though we're sharing our December projects from a couple months ago right now, this would actually be the perfect time to make some and really be ahead of the game! And today, we have the lovely Laura sharing to tell us all about her amazing holiday creations! While photo cards have become a favorite of mine when sending out Christmas cards to family and friends, I always like to have a few handmade cards on hand to add a more [...]

Hello There Card Adaptation | Bees Knees

Remember yesterday how I said that my brain was swirling with Valentine adaptations for cards in the Hello There class (that's on sale until Thursday). Yup. this happened.   Using the soon-to-be-released bee stamp image with my Minc. A lovely combination, if I do say so myself! One note. I might Minc it before doing your Silhouette Print+Cut. I did it after and so the cut affected the toner on the bee. In the end I'd prefer a nice smooth gold, but in the essence of conserving my precious gold ;), I opted not to redo it. hmmmm.....now what else [...]
