Christmas Greetings

This time last year was not my best year in the land of work. As a result, most of my time was spent working on a new site, but additionally, I had my son's wedding to prepare for. His (at the time) soon-to-be mother-in-law asked if I would design a large print of a quote she loved for the wedding. During the process, I thought, 'Hmm...this would be a really fun look for some Christmas songs.' It was coming up on the holiday season, after all. I whipped up one to see what it would be like and that's as [...]

Food, Glorious Food.

I do love me some glorious food. And with the holidays just around the corner, I can't wait for all those tasty bits that only seem to come 'round this time of year. We often take pictures of the big Thanksgiving feast or Christmas dinner. But I also love documenting about food all through the year. I often include what we make for Sunday dinner or where Dan and I go to eat out--I think it's incredibly important to include in your story. It gives your posterity a little 'taste' of your life. ;) That's why I'm totally in love [...]

The Final Summer Freebie | Gift Card Striped Envelope

Labor Day has come and gone and summer is officially over--regardless of the 98 degree temps we seem to be having. Someone needs to tell Utah that this is a fall month and those are July temps. I want to thank you all for your enthusiasm over this summer's Weekly Freebie. It's been so incredibly fun to see thousands of you stop by this summer to pick the freebie--it's like my own little virtual vacation spot. So many people from so many countries have taken a 'summer vacation' here. People have visited from the US, Canada, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, [...]

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 | 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 [...]

April Showers Bring New Designs

  Spring is my second favorite season. Love the new life. It's like every day is a mystery as to what will pop up or out next. It's such a wonderful feeling seeing more and more color every day. Of course, this time of year it's also a mystery as to what weather we'll have. Rain? Snow? Sun? Major wind? All of the above in one day? Yup. That pretty much sums up the Utah 'sprinters'. All of this had me inspired to create this cute little kit under the umbrella (haha) of April Showers bringing May flowers.     [...]

Traveler’s Pack: Paradise

Once upon a time there was a little girl who was taking a trip across the big blue ocean to the beautiful island of Kauai. She knew she wanted to write her stories of the trip and needed the prefect accessories to accommodate such stories of travels and adventure, and Traveler's Pack: Paradise was born.   The kit comes with seven cover papers sized the same as a Midori cover, which is 8.75" x 8.25". Of course you can size as needed. You can also use them as paper in the book as well as what they were intended for…covers. This kit [...]

A New Line: Travelers Notebook Themed Kits

As part of this fresh, new KBS direction-- live. write. repeat.--I personally want to focus more on documenting simply and share those ideas with you. And part of that is creating components as part of a system to help you--and me--to do that. A couple months ago you may have seen the 'Instagram-minute' video I shared on what I'm doing with my traveler's notebook (and a little peek at this new kit). I'm actually going to do something a little more in-depth here soon, but one of the fun techniques I'm doing is binding my book with  a Midori rubber band rather than the staples.. [...]
