Lisa has done it again.

First, I want to eat these cookies.

Second, I want to receive these cookies.




Click here for Lisa’s tutorial on how to use the sketch feature to create this darling jar covering using one of my patterned backgrounds.  She paired it with my tag and a part of my Santa Cookie quote.  Love. It. All.

There are links for all of the shapes she uses in her tutorial.  Check it out.

And while you are in the Silhouette store, grab this quote to create a fabulous album celebrating your creativity.  Thanks, Traci.  Her tutorial is here.  It’s a great application for cuttable Silhouette chipboard.

There were a couple of tutorials that hit the Silhouette blog recently that I want to share with you.  The first, because Kelly used a sketch pen in her Silhouette to create one of my quotes.  The second, because I LOVE wrapping gifts and this one from Lisa is beautiful!

Click here to see how Kelly created this card – the quote is sketched inside and you can find it in the Silhouette store here.  Great idea, Kelly!  (And I see you used one of my “happy” words as well.  Works for everything.)




Lisa’s beautiful, custom gift wrap is awesome because you can pre-make some wrappers and just add the birthday person’s name when you need them.  I’m in love with this beautiful gift wrapping idea!  Click here for her tutorial and here to find the “happy birthday” in the Silhouette shop.

I saw this project come through the Silhouette blog and loved the use of my Thin Arrows.  Find the tutorial here.

Seriously, arrows are the perfect addition to ANY project.  She used this file and this file found in the Silhouette shop.  Or get a whole set of the cut file arrows from Lori’s shop here.  You can’t have too many arrows these days.

I am a quilter.  Wait.  I am a piecer.  I send my quilts out to be machine quilted because the hand-quilting is not my thing.  So, I piece quilts.

I rarely use a set pattern.  I create the patterns myself from a variety of blocks and patterns and ideas.

I use graph paper and a calculator and figure out how to create a work of art using fabric.

I call it Fabric Therapy.

Touching the fabric is healing and calming and an opportunity to express my creativity.

When I received an email highlighting some of my Silhouette designs used to create a St. Patrick’s Day quilt, I felt….LUCKY.


I hope you enjoy Kelly’s tutorial and post here.

I felt lucky again when I saw how ANOTHER Kelly used part of one of my quotes to create this inspired board for her family.

Expressing gratitude.

Seeing the best in each other.

Loving each other out in the open.


Click here to see the tutorial for this project.  I’m so happy she shared this with me.

Lucky Family.
