Let’s Beach Out

As of the morning I’m writing this, my 9 year old and I looked over the calendar to count the days until Summer Vacation officially commences. It’s 17 💕 Seventeen. Seventeen days. He’s told me what he wants to do with his Summer, and I’ll be honest- little dude is a great planner 😂 What he wants […]

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 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 […]

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 […]

Hello Sunshine Silhouette Cameo Freebie

Hello Sunshine

It seems I’m always creating what I’m dreaming about these days. I do appreciate every season, living somewhere that we’re lucky enough to have 4 seasons. But leave it to me to spend a rainy, Spring weekend creating summery designs! I’m hoping once again to make the most of this summer season. Designs at SCF […]

Follow Your Own Path

With our recent Hello Honey freebie, I told you all how much I’ve been loving my new Microsoft Surface Pro* and Surface Pen*. As I work to return to a regular publishing schedule for SCF, I expect to rely heavily on these tools to create new designs. I hope you guys like hand-lettered designs <3 […]

Silhouette Cameo Freebie Hearts Pineapple

You had Me at Aloha Hearts Pineapple

This is the reason I loooooove Illustrator. And Silhouette Studio. And my cameo! Pineapples are all the rage for summer décor and clothing, but when I decided I wanted something with a pineapple composed of overlaid hearts I couldn’t find it anywhere. Silhouette to the rescue! I know Summer is rapidly winding down, but let’s […]
