Boo Crew

Did I scare you?! I know this file is pretty scary- scary cute, that is ; ) We’re getting some intermittent Autumn-y days here in Salt Lake, but it’s been so hot for so long that I still haven’t put up a single fall or Halloween décor item 😩 I’m starting to think that we’ll just […]

Happy Halloween

Welcome back, Silhouetters! I know it’s still a way off, but if we’re crafting, we need enough time to get our stuff together! For that reason your girl has spent 3 weeks holed up with her Surface Pro putting together a fall collection. As a child, one of my favorite things about holidays was the […]

Pick of the Patch

Oh, man, y’all. It’s been SO LONG since I’ve been here, uploading and styling new posts, that I’ve almost forgotten how! That’s good and bad. It’s bad because- missed ya! It’s good because I was TRULY taking a break. When it comes to me and artistic pursuits, breaks are my best friend. The last couple of years have been rough, […]

Hoodie Weather

I’m going to tell you a secret. It’s January when I’m writing this 🙉 But I wear my hoodies in all but the hottest of weather- and even then I keep one handy just in case it gets ‘cold’ at night. And then I’m waiting all Summer for the hoodie days to come again! That might […]

Hello Little One

Does this sweet cuttable make you awwwwww? One of my most-requested designs are files for new babies. Last week I brought you Too Darn Cute, which I hope also fit that bill, and today ‘Hello Little One’. I think this would look adorable on a tiny onesie, make a lovely card or be just perfect printed […]

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 […]

Too Darn Cute

Welcome back, my freebie friends! I hope everyone had a happy Mother’s Day weekend. Mine was mostly low-key. Aside from Christmas, I think Silhouette sees the biggest new users hike post Mother’s Day. With that in the back of my mind, I couldn’t help but make our first freebie back after the holiday a cute […]

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 […]
