craft the joy of your HOMETOWN SUMMER

 

Summer is in full swing at my place and while every momma knows the livin’ ain’t easy this season- it sure is good!

We don’t have any big vacation plans this summer other than a few day trips.  Truth told- I’m more of an Autumn traveler.  the thought of waiting on lines and in crowds at the usual kiddie parks in the summer heat is a nightmare to me.

I truly believe one of the very places to go this season- and the one place that will make the most difference in the memories my boys have of their childhood summers is right here at home! Travel is awesome- but- most of the stories our summers are made of are in our own backyard- and I wanted to celebrate that with this design!

I worked to design HOMETOWN SUMMER to capture the little joys that make up simple summer days. It has a fun retro vibe and bright happy colors and lots of details to help you tell the stories of your own summer days.  You can get a peek of the design in the video below and see even more layouts by visiting the shop here.  Here’s wishing you a terrific summer- no matter how far (or near!) it take you!

craft the joy of WEEKEND VIBES

These days my thoughts have been turning more to the comforts of home-and that comfy vibe worked it’s way onto the drawing board in my new design-WEEKEND VIBES!  It’s filled with all the cozy joys of being indoorsy on the weekend- books, warm cups of goodness, bagels to brunch on, a fireplace to cuddle by and […]

Who said Halloween is just for kids? It’s one of my favorite holidays because of the sheer fun of it all!

CT Tips: Making the most of your supplies!

  Hi all! Kimberly here! I have a secret.  As a digi-scrap book supply consumer, I’ve always been motivated by value. I LOVE shopping the SOSN, store promotions, and Froggy Fridays. I love getting a few coins off and I’m a sucker for a FWP or bundle. Most importantly though, I don’t want my new […]
