I decided to learn something new today- print and cut on my Silhouette Cameo.

There are plenty of tutorials out there – some are actually pretty good- but I had to go through a few before I figured stuff out.

Anyway, after a few issues, I finally printed and cut out some super cute VW bus images!

I used printer paper so my mess ups wouldn’t use up my cardstock. As a result, these cuties are perfect for my planner!

Here’s how it went once I got it going:

Aren’t they adorable?? I found them in the Silhouette store. It’s called “camper van tags” and was .99 today.  My Silhouette got one first. Here’s how I put the adhesive on them. I love my Xyron! And after all these years wondering what to put on my Mac, these are perfect! They make me smile. I think this could be the start of something super fun!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless.

What a week this has been! I began on Sunday, meeting with a super sweet lady who loves Stampin’ Up as much as I do, then on Monday I signed up a wonderful friend to be on my Stampin’ Up team. I received a phone call tonight from my new (Sunday) friend and she is going to sign up as well! That makes my downline number FIVE! I am so excited! They are all talented demonstrators and I am just thrilled to be a part of this amazing group of women.

I’ll spend all next week making sure I’m up on all the latest so I can encourage my downline to succeed in their dreams. What a gift God has given me. I do not understand the timing, and I won’t question it… I’m just incredibly, wholeheartedly blessed.

To celebrate, I made this video! LOL! Please subscribe to my channel… it’s brand new and I promise to keep it fun and informative! God bless!

I love Facebook. Why? Well, first of all it helps me to know the prayer needs of others. Second to that, I get to know when neat things are happening with my kids – like the garden that my son The Boy and his wife Emily are planning.

The post showed them tilling the soil. I knew I had to do something to surprise and encourage them, so I whipped out my Cricut machine and made these:


I will add plant stakes to them so they can stand the signs in their garden. I think my grandLittles will enjoy the fun colors and shapes too!
Here’s how they came together:

First, I used Cricut Craft Room to select designs from the Cricut cartridge Freshly Picked . Once I selected the various components, I arranged them on the virtual mat, wrote down the sizes and began cutting.
It wasn’t too difficult to choose colors- earthy, garden colors worked out just fine.

A bit of trimming came next.


Some 2-way glue and a bit of placing elements together came next:

Now it was time to laminate:

I made sure to round the corners when I cut them apart since there will be some little hands in the garden!

Once finished, I took them all outside to introduce them to their natural habitat! Here they are again:


I have a few more to make but thought I’d share now just in case I forget to before I mail them.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Visit me on Facebook, “Like” my page and see what’s going on in my creative world! God bless. Kathy Bo

As a Scrap It Girl Design Team member, I love Favorite Things Friday! Why? Because I get to play with my most favorite things!

Today’s FTF is favorite music!

Oh. This is TOO easy.

I listen to Pandora and while I have many favorite stations, my go-to when I’m creating is my Adele station. This is playing now:

It’s true- I’ll never be a “Royal” as Lorde sings- and Oh- her VOICE. Yeah, it’s a favorite fo sho!

Now Adele is playing – and the hits keep coming!

The Design Team at Scrap It Girl has a fun challenge: choose our favorite journal, calendar or notebook for the Favorite Things Friday Challenge.
Was this ever easy for me! I love this mixed media travel journal that I actually made a few years ago on a scrapbooking trip.

It’s my favorite.
I have a lot of great memories creating this too. I met new friends and also learned new techniques.
My absolutely most favorite page is this one, where the kid leather glove (an estate sale find) holds tickets.

Here are more pages:




And a closeup of the cover. Super cool, techniques and elements, all thanks to a little scrapbooking trip.

Want to get in on the fun? Enter your favorite journal, notebook or calendar in the Scrap It Girl Favorite Things Friday!
Thanks for stopping by! God bless.
