Born to Ride

It’s fantasy freebie Friday! We recently worked together to create a Unicorn Illustration in Silhouette Studio. If you haven’t watched it yet, I do recommend giving that tutorial a view. If you don’t have the time, or are just too eager to make something cute for your grandbaby, I hear you- that’s why I’ve created […]

Let’s Mermaid

Hello, crafty friends. It’s been so fun lately to lean into my love of lettering. I’m beginning to find my style, or at least my style for now, and I’m so excited by that! As a little girl, my two Disney movies were ‘Beauty and the Beast’ and ‘The Little Mermaid’. These two still reign […]

I Choose Chocolate

By now you’re getting to know me- I can’t be sweet without at least a little sass, right? The sweetness here being just that my chocolate preference is sweet 💁🏻 I’m just kidding! I am super loving, affectionate and loyal. I’ve been creating in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop for 20 years now! That’s a very long term […]

I Believe in Fairies

Hey, Silhouette friends! I have loved being lost in Illustrator lately. Once again all of my down time is spent curled up with my Surface Pro*, surface pen and dreaming up designs. As a teen, I was thoroughly enamored with Cicely Barker’s lovely collection of fairy illustrations. I frequently incorporated them into my own designs (though […]

Sunny Bee

Today is a bright, beautiful and inspiring day in Salt Lake! Now, I’m not even that ‘type’- just as I love mountains, forests, jungles and plains I also love cloudy days, sunny days, rainy days and windy days. But this is still a good one! No forecast for showers, not too hot (low 60s!), bright […]

Make Life Your Beach

I’m early. But y’all! I never took advantage of the ocean for all the years I was a short drive from it. I’ve lived close to two different coast lines and the water was somehow never really a thing for me. Why?! Why didn’t I choose better?! Now that I’m an adult, all I want […]

Illustrated Fox in Silhouette Studio

Happy Sunday, Silhouetters! Today we’re adding to our tutorial collection. Creating your own illustrated characters in Silhouette studio has many benefits. My favorite is that they’re yours. Obviously if you make Mickey Mouse in Silhouette Studio, well, he still belongs to Disney, but there are a lot of other options besides Mickey. This cute, cuttable fox […]

April Showers May with Flowers

I’m so excited! Without some context, ya’ll, you can’t really appreciate my enthusiasm for this freebie. I’ve been working on this design for two years. You read that right. Two YEARS! Can you believe that? I started on it way back in 2017 on my desktop computer. Fonts just didn’t do it justice, though, and I […]

Hello Summer Popsicles

Welcome back! Are we getting back in the swing of things? So smoothly? So soon!? I can hardly believe it! I gave a bit of a life update in Sunday’s post “Hello Summer Design Tutorial” and told ya’ll I’d be back soon with a free version of the cute cuttable we made together in that […]

Hello Summer Design Tutorial

Hey, guys! If you read how things were going back in February, you know I was getting clobbered- my car fell apart, my son got very sick, I got sick, money was stolen- then it all started over again! We replaced our car, but that one had a bit of an accident (I was not driving!), […]

Little Ray of Sunshine

This isn’t me. Not today. Not right now. Recently I chronicled for you the misfortune which has been my normal. Rounds of flu. Car trouble. Bank thieves. Maybe I didn’t mention the last one. But it’s out there. And just as I was sure everything would turn up roses I was clobbered with a multi-day […]

I Like to Heat Things Up

Hello, Everyone! Your friendly freezing freebie-maker is back with another new cuttable. Like many others across the country, we are getting hit with rounds of snow storms. The Keurig is running, cups are steaming, the kitten is cuddling. It isn’t as cold as it was at Christmas, but it sure looks a lot more wintery! This […]
