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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
