Mother’s Day Gift Idea

Time is fa-lyin' folks! Can you believe Mother's Day is this Sunday? I've been excited for the warmer weather, spending time with my family outdoors and going on adventures, but my goodness, come this weekend we'll be at the middle of May already! What plans do you have for Mother's Day? What do you give your mothers, mothers-in-law or the special women in your life? Have you ever thought about a framed layout? Perhaps something like this from Laura?     [ Designs | Background Basics #3 (floral), Grateful (happy life) ] gasp! Right? That is so pretty and such a [...]

Thumbs Up

The KBS creative team never ceases to amaze me. I love seeing how their minds work with the designs available--things I would never think to do. Leave it to Paige to come up with gigantic hibiscus flowers using the 'itty bitty' Beach Vibes PNG file! Here my mind is stuck on small because, after all, the stamp is small. But Paige in her floralistic wisdom has turned the cute little thing into a gorgeous background for her page! Take a look....         Here's what Paige has to say: DESCRIPTION: This entire layout was inspired by the hibiscus flower [...]

Spring. A Time of Change.

Before we get started with today's loveliness, I just wanted to remind you of the Spring Fling sale going on right now. You can save 40% on THESE spring designs on orders of $5 or more by using the code:  SPRING. ___________ If there's one thing that spring does, it's change. Adding new growth to decade-old trees. Bulbs buried deep in the ground change and allow new life to come forth through the dirt. Grass turning from a matted brown mop to a luscious green carpet. It's all about change.  And that's one thing we've seen in the scrapbooking world. Change. Styles [...]

The Birds Are Back!

One thing I've noticed the past few [warm] days is the significant change in the bird noise level. Yay! It's a beautiful sound, is it not? A wonderful sign of spring. And when more birds flew my way via Paige Evans, I was all a-flutter! Like....mind....blown. Take a look: Tell us all about this Paige! DESCRIPTION: Jane is OBSESSED with birds. Mostly pigeons. She called them "chickens" from about the age of 2-3.5. This love of fowl must be documented. JOURNALING: You are fascinated with birds and love to chase pigeons in every city we visit. "1,2,3,4,5,6,7!" (inside joke ;) Maybe someday you [...]

Fling Into Spring!

Even though a snow storm roared and blizzarded (ya, it's a word) its way in to us yet once again last night, I did manage to spend a few glorious first days of March in the beautiful sunshine! The days are getting longer. The temps will rise again this week. And we change to Daylight Savings Time this weekend. All glorious signs that we are flinging into spring! Yay! So with all this going on, it's the perfect time for us to have a Spring Fling week! with our creative team! Aaaand, on top of the beautiment (ya, it's a word) [...]

All Those Photos!

If there's one thing there seems to a lot of (besides sweets) at Christmas time, it's photos. Pictures of family, pictures of the gifts, pictures of family opening gifts, eating...all sorts of photo ops. That's a whole heckuva lot of real estate in an album....unless you do it Laura's way! Laura has a gift for getting many photos into a couple pages using KBS photo templates. This girl rocks the photo templates! Take a look. [ Designs |  Out Of This World (stars) / Yuletide Greetings (hello christmas) / Photo Strips #1 / Storyboard #7 ] I'm sorry...it has to [...]

Got Christmas?

In November, when all signs pointed to being 'home for the holidays', I had my creative team whirl their Christmas magic on some wonderful projects. As the days passed by and it appeared my Christmas wish wasn't coming true, I shared their beautiful creations on social media. Now that we're back and live, these lovelies need to be in their permanent home--where they should be--with all their little details. So let's start with Miss Paige, shall we? Cutting--and stitching--this digital stamp tree just totally knocked my Christmas stockings off! [ Design | Oh What Fun (tree) ]   Do you still have socks [...]

Bring On The Sports!

What with school coming back around and the olympics on, I feel like sports is all around us. And I miss the days of Friday night high school football. So I guess until we have grandkids of our own (that's still quite a few years away), I'll have to live vicariously through others...like this fantastic page from Miss Laura! [ Designs | Storyboard: Instagram Style / Life Additions Backgrounds (circle background) / Weathered Door [all] (Lady Buffs) / July Four (celebrate) / Simplicities: Best Thing Ever (tab). Stamps | For You ] What a way to capture a season, right? Wow! Look at all those [...]

Party Guest | Emma Wood

The one thing I have loved most about having my own company these six years--and being in this business of scrapbooking and craftiness for waaay more than that--is that I have made friends from all over the world...right here from the comfort of my own little studio. I've met and admired so many talented people and today's party guest, Emma Wood--from Australia, is one of them! Check out this bit of gorgeousness she's sharing here today at the KBS party!

Finally Licensed

It's funny. We were just having the conversation the other day about who had more patience to work with our kids learning to drive. Uh. Yeah. That would be me (see hand waving in the air). I did have my fair share of jerky, fast-moving grips on the dashboard or arm rest or would fancy a nice clench of the knees, mind you. But somehow we managed through the three kids and everyone arrived safely on the other side. That's why I love this page from our Miss Laura. She captured the essence of what it truly means to get that little [...]
