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 [...]

Hello There Snowflakes

Okay, so a funny thing happened over the past couple days. In church they asked us to pray for moisture because we haven't had any serious snow since Christmas. Maybe just a few flurries and some rain from time to time. February was very spring like. So yesterday it was quite a surprise to get blizzard like conditions--thaaaat lasted for maybe 15 minutes. I guess not enough people prayed so we only got 15 minutes' worth. ;) Dan mentioned he was quite disappointed that he couldn't get a snow shovel out. It looked so promising too. Oh well. Instead we'll make [...]

One Card, Three Ways

One of the best ways to maximize your time in making cards is to make a card that's universal in design and then you can swap out the sentiment. A few KBS handwritten words are just the ticket! Make several to keep on hand too. Miss Nichol has done just that with these bright and cheery cards! [ Designs | County Fair (popcorn used for clouds) / Happy Stuff (happy birthday and hello there) / This+That: Freedom (sunburst) / Thank My Lucky Stars (stars) / You Got This ] These would totally brighten my day if I was the recipient of one of [...]

Christmas In July • Christmas Cards

So, confession here. I always have good intentions of doing something with those Christmas cards that we get, yet each year they get filed away in a stack in a page protector. sad. I love the photos I get each year and have a hard time just discarding I don't. But I'm not getting them into albums either. Well, this great spread from Nichol has motivated me to do something with mine! While it's a calmer and quieter time of's the perfect time to get it done! And using pocket pages? Makes it so much easier! Take a [...]
