Weekly Summer Freebie | That Summer Feeling

  I've done my best to enjoy the last little bit of that summer feeling, both in atmosphere and in creativity. We took a quick trip to California this weekend to visit family and to drive back with Jordan, who was working in the horse program at a Girl Scout Camp in Big Bear, California. Oh, and we may have rented a Honda CRV to go down through Kass' work. I wonder what car we might be buying next. ;) Today's freebie, That Summer Feeling, comes in the regular cut files and PNG file, but also includes a bonus watercolor print, [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Lazy Days Background

  When I hear words associated with summer, they immediately put a smile on my face--except hot or heat. Those don't do anything for me in the smile category. I don't do heat. So I thought it was only appropriate to make a background with a plethora of happy summer words. The Lazy Days Background kit comes in 12 x 12", 8.5 x 11" and Travelers Notebook (4.125 x 8.25") sizes--in SVG, DXF and PNG file formats. There is much to do with these fine little backgrounds in all your summer keeping memories.   And on another note, I apologize for [...]

April Showers

It's been a long time since we've had rain 'round these parts. But today and yesterday have been rainy and cool. We're talkin' upper 70s and low 80s for the high. Yay! The respite won't last long, however, as we get back up to our average mid to upper 90s in the next couple days. But I tell ya, it's been glorious and I'm enjoying the heck out of it for as long as it lasts. And it couldn't have been better timing for showing of this darling April Showers page by Paige! Here she is to tell ya all [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Flamingo

  Nothing says 'let's get tropical and hang out on the beach'  like a pink flamingo, eh? So of course we need that in our little Weekly Summer Freebie mix! I used the Office Tag KBS design in my Silhouette software to print a tag outline with the 'flamingo' word. I tried cutting the word, but even with the magical powers of Silhouette, it still didn't like cutting it  at 5/8" high...not even with my American Crafts cardstock. Bummer. But printing it still works. I cut the flamingo design at 3" tall and that worked great! Use the flamingo as [...]

Signs of Halloween

Alright, now before you start thinkin' I'm all jumpin' the gun for fall, just hold on a minute. like...whoa.  I actually had this mostly done last fall, but with all the [insert expletive here] that went on last year here in the land of KBS, I never got it finished much less added to a store that didn't exist. So.... Since I needed to finally get a pillow case made for a friend's birthday--who happens to be a Halloween nut, I decided to get it all wrapped up and in its final place. I present to you, Signs of Halloween. [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | Olive Branch

This week I felt like being leafy. And any time Kass and I use the word leafy, we have to say it in our Phoebe Buffay voice when they are playing a game to win the apartment back. She asks each team what their favorite thing about trees is, and one answers they're green and one answers they're tall. "Both are good answers," she says, "but we were looking for leafy, leeeaafy," one of the best episodes. Anywaaaaay... :) So my mind immediately went to an olive branch. I love the thin and delicate look of an olive branch. And it doesn't mean you need [...]

Weekly Summer Freebie | The Open Road

  I have many memories of traveling 'the open road' in my childhood. Having been born in Oregon, we took trips to the beach--Lincoln City, in particular--or traveled across the state to visit cousins in La Grande and then on into Idaho to visit grandparents on the farm. Sometimes we'd all caravan together. Such fun times. I don't know how they put up with us girl cousins singing songs all the way. I know we didn't sing softly. ;) I also have fond memories of my mom telling us to count the waterfalls and not so fond memories of orange [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
