Take it away Laura! I recently cleaned out a bunch of my handmade cards, and randomly sent a bunch of them off to friends and family. [...]

Christmas In July | Christmas Cards and Ho Ho Ho Freebie

Today is a doubly fun day. It's Friday. It's Christmas in July. The freebie has got to be Christmas related, right? And if you follow me on social media, you'll have seen some negative space that I cut for a women's activity. The more I thought about it, the more I knew…it's gotta be the freebie. Right? I'd cut it in red originally because I needed red ho's, but of course I thought it would be so perfect in my traditional white-on-white. Yeah…loving that.  And, as someone suggested, you can turn it upside-down and it becomes a bunch of OH's. You [...]

Christmas In July | Tags…Simplistic Elegance Be Thy Name

One of the best parts of my job is getting to see what other people make with KBS goodies. Particularly, each time my creative team sends me an email with their gorgeous works, I get giddy. And today's grouping of simplistically elegant tags from Nichol Magouirk is no exception. I am not what you'd call a traditional 'stamper'. And that is why I make the stamps I do. I like words that accentuate a page or designs where you can make a beautiful+simple tag or card. For those that wonder if stamping is for you…take a look at these amazing tags made [...]

Graduation Gift Card Envelope

Last weekend we had a few graduations in the family--a nephew and a set of twins (niece+nephew). I hadn't had much time to run out to get them something and then I thought, 'Pfffff, what am I thinking? I have the perfect thing to do!' I decided to combine two kits into one--the gift card tearaway envelope and the graduation subway art. (Plus I stole a line from Cathy Zielske's darling grad cards to use on the tearaway because my brain was too fried to think of anything else creative. ;) ) To make your own graduation adaptation--or with any [...]

Last Minute Card Idea

Nothing says joy and fun like confetti, does it? Just one look at it makes you giddy. Especially when it's wrapped up in a little 'package' and you can shake it around and see where it goes inside. Colorful. Bright. Shiny.  It's what Laura's card is all about today. [ Designs | Santa's Workshop: Toys Only (envelope) / December Twenty-Five (do not open) / Confetti (confetti) ] I adore this idea! I love that Laura stitched at transparency on the front of a petal envelope to contain all that fluttery fun. What a great idea! Here's what Laura has to say: Now [...]
