Wow. I can’t believe our team up week with Bella Blvd is over! It has been a grand week! There has been so many amazing things shared in both places. I’m just in awe.

So a quick shout out to everyone who shared their talents this week.
You are all freakin’ amazing!

And now, last but not least, is little ol’ me with something to share.

But first, a little background, if you’ll humor me.
(Now would be a good time go get that hot chocolate and sit a spell.)

My one little word for this year as been Capture. I wanted to capture more love, moments and life. I’ve done well with it here and there, but I’ve not been very good in documenting things, which is an area I really wanted to do.

I had high hopes of doing something in the Project LIfe arena, but it’s now…ohhhh…November 12 and welllllll…yeah. Pages done: 0.

You’d think that I could at least manage doing something for Project Life!

It’s so simple.

But when all was said and done, it still ‘overwhelmed’ me. Something to do with thinking of filling up pockets with photos and getting it documented every week…my head could still not simplify it to the point of having it be easy.

So then I bought a planner. Still having great intentions of not only documenting, but planning work and keeping track of tasks. Let’s see, it’s November 12 and wellll, yeah. Pages done: 0.

I’ve actually been working on trips in my Traveler’s Notebook since the beginning of the year-ish. It’s dreamy. I love the idea of quick writing, little photos and some foo-foo from the trip. Still have some work to complete them. All journaling has been typed, so no worries there.

But then one day I saw Miss Marcy Penner (Hello Forever) post her 2016 Traveler’s Notebook printout. And I thought, I think I can do that. That feels like something doable. I don’t have to be overwhelmed with photos. I don’t have to write all the bits of the day. If all I did worth writing was see a beautiful sunrise, then that’s all I need to do.

I am in love with it.

I love the idea of writing lines of ‘did this, love that’ and keep it short and sweet. Our family has these tiny little journals from my great grandparents that do that exact same thing. And it’s a treasure! They’d say what the weather was, if they went it to town, did ‘all the baking’…and things like that. Just snippets of their day.

And that’s what I want to leave behind.

I am recording now.

I am so happy.

I actually type it on my computer first and then write it into the book. That way I have another copy just in case. Not only that, I’m pretty much tied at the hip to my laptop, so it’s super convenient for me to just jot notes there.

If I have one photo, I can put that in. If I have multiple photos, I can make a collage print.

There are no rules.

I feel like it’s taking Project Life down a notch to an even more basic level.

And that, I think, is going to work for me.

This is exciting stuff. :)

So here’s what I have to share today. Remember, I’m documenting simply. But I also love the idea of including designs of things that I have made as well. I think that’s an important piece of my history.

When I saw the Just Add Color kit from Bella Blvd it didn’t just speak to me, it screamed to me. Hello? Black and white? Yeah. Love.

And the polkadots…just ever so dreamy. I knew they needed to be the cover to my new documenting endeavor. I want to add something to the front, but it hasn’t revealed itself to me just yet.

Aren’t those dots just awesome!!!
I’m a little bit of a crazed polkadot junky.
Just sayin’.



So on this spread above, I had many photos that I wanted to share. Love Instagram for documenting too! What a great resource. I had one extra photo that I wanted to include, so I turned the photo collage into a pocket, put the photo on a tag, and voila. It’s been included! I added a little Bella Blvd This is Happening sticker and a little washi.




Now, when you have nothing to say on a given day, just fill it with something shiny for distraction. ;) It was actually a great space for sharing the weekend file that I made for that Friday.

I also ordered some shiny gold vinyl from SignWarehouse and had to use it!

Love the black and white numbers. Hello. More Bella Blvd Just Add Color paper! Topped it with one of their stickers too. It was perfect for what I’m currently in to…which are sunrises and sunsets! We’ve been getting some amazing ones lately!

Added a little BOO design from Something Wicked and a This Is Just Neat stamp from Tagged.


And here we go again. Perfect opportunity to share stamps and the printable that we did in Said+Done that week. (Stamps: Tagged, Time Again + Line By Line)

I love the idea of writing my snippets all week and taking maybe 30 minutes on Sunday to write it out and add some photos. Keeping it short and sweet.

This is my speed.

I think I can do this.

    I so could have written your intro! As I read, I said to myself, yes…that is totally me. Yup, had great intentions, 0 pages done. Drat! I want to do something that expresses my creative side, yet needed it to be more bitesized. Love this idea…and will give it a try. Did you create the cover too?

    Thanks for your honesty Kerri!!ReplyCancel

  • Claudia Schneider - November 14, 2015 - 3:25 pm

    This is probably a silly question…how do you print your photos in a small format?ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - November 14, 2015 - 9:06 pm

      I actually used a photo template from the Snapshots #3 kit (in the store) and printed it onto a 4×6 sheet. The photo templates are layered PSD files that you can use in Photoshop or Elements. They are a pretty nifty + helpful thing to have. :) If you’re not familiar with them, check out the tutorials here:

  • Katrina H - November 15, 2015 - 9:47 pm

    I love your way of documenting your life! But I’ve gotta say – this is more complicated than my Project Life albums. I just do a photo and write on a journaling card and call it good. I just thought it was funny. 😀 If PL didn’t work for me, I would definitely try something like this!ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - November 16, 2015 - 5:47 pm

      Ha ha! That’s so funny. :) I think for me it’s the photos that become daunting. When I take that element out, then documenting becomes the easy thing and then I only put in a photo here and there. Fluff it up a little more, if I have extra time or keep it super simple. We’ll see if I can keep up with it though. ;)ReplyCancel

This Bella Blvd and KBS team up shebang has been so amazing so far, right? I am loving all the major inspiration going on at both blogs. Incredible. Just incredible.

On top of all that, I can’t believe it’s the 12th of November already! We’re almost half-way done…and just two more weeks until Thanksgiving.

Say what?

Christmas is coming folks.

What are you going to do with all those photos, eh?

Welllllll, I think we got something here that might help with that from the darling Miss Nichol!

KBS_BellaBlvd4[ DesignsClick (filmstrips + click) / Seasonably Said (christmas) / Attach It (tag).  Stamps | Twinkle ]

Can you say, freakin’ adorable?!
Love the filmstrips with all the photos and accents.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

One of my favorite ways to showcase older, less-than-perfect photos is to frame them up and add clusters of simple embellishments to showcase the story. The filmstrips from the Click Kit are some of my all-time favorite shapes and make creating an eye-cathing layout both quick and easy! Don’t feel like you have to include photos in all the openings. I filled the empty spaces with Christmas-themed patterned papers and embellished those frames for a fun and festive holiday layout!

Yup. Great way to showcase those older less-than-perfect photos!

And the winners of the download/class gift cards are…

Congratulations ladies! I’ve emailed you, so keep an eye out for it.

November is a natural time for many to start thinking about family and what we’re grateful for. Lots of family photos are being taken for those Christmas cards too.

So what are you going to do with all the other family photos?

Well, I think our Miss Laura has a page for that!

Check it out….


[ DesignsAll In The Family (love at home), Love: Every Little Thing (together tab), Best Thing Ever (circle border), Flower Power (free file) ]

I just love how happy this layout is.
And I think those patterned flowers are my favorite!


Here’s what Laura has to say:

Kerri’s cut files and Bella Blvd’s colorful collections pretty much go hand-in-hand for me, since I’m lucky enough to design for both teams. I’ve done quite a few layouts for both Kerri and Bella, featuring photos I’ve taken of my cousin and his family over the last few years, and I decided to scrap another set of photos of them for my team-up layout.

I pulled my colors from the photos themselves, and picked out some Bella patterned papers in navy blue, yellow, green, and brown. I used the confetti patterned paper as my “neutral” paper for the side of my layout where I knew I’d have my photos and title. I usually don’t die cut all of my elements from the same patterned paper, but that’s just sort of how it worked out this time as I liked the navy blue woodgrain patterned paper for most of my pieces. I die cut the circle border to add along the left side of page, to break up the “heaviness” of too much patterned paper on the page (if that’s even a thing?). Alongside the circle border strip, I added a strip of yellow chevron patterned paper, layered with a white dotted Clear Cut transparency on top.

I went with the “love at home” title from Kerri’s All In The Family kit, as we took these photo at my cousin’s house. We often take their photos in other locations, so I loved the idea of adding the “home” touch to the page. I love the “together” tab from the Every Little Thing kit, for tucking behind photos or layers of papers. And to embellish the page, I die cut some of Kerri’s Flower Power flowers (one of her Friday Freebies!) from coordinating patterned papers and added chipboard circles or enamel dots to the centers.

And don’t forget to enter in the drawing in yesterday’s post!

And then head on over to Bella Blvd because they are doing a giveaway there today too!

It is another fine and fabulous day here during our team up week with Bella Blvd! I loved seeing all the goodness yesterday in both places, didn’t you?

And today, not only do we get to see some awesomeness from Miss Layle, but we’re doing a giveaway! So, be sure to check out the details below.

I love what Layle has shared with us today. Oddly enough, last Friday night Kass and I were chasing the sunset. I could tell it was going to be a good one (and it sure was!) and so we drove around to see if there was a great photo op. Somehow we wound up over by Zach’s alma mater, Timpanogos High School. I looked over to the football fields as I drove by and said to Kass, ‘I miss watching the football games.’ And she concurred.

It’s funny how that gets to be so ingrained in your life during a short bit of time. He’s almost 26 now, by the way.

So let’s hear and see what Layle has to say about her sons’ football season.

If you like football, country music, Kenny Chesney…  If you’re a football mom & have a son who’s playing high school football, has in the past, or will be in the future…  You may know this song, “The Boys of Fall”.  And hey, if none of those apply to you, the title still works for this layout about our 2 high school football players :)

I’m a football mom.  For the last 7 years, July through November, our family has lived and breathed it.  To say I have taken tens of thousands of football photos is not an exaggeration!  But truth be told I’ve only scrapped a small handful of the boys’ photos from over the years.  I mean really, when you think about it, how many football (insert ANY sport here!) photos can you scrap before they all start looking the same?!  But not this one, this one holds a special place in my heart and it needed to be scrapped all on it’s own.

I’ve had this song and this photo jumbling around in my head for the last few weeks;  our oldest is a senior and he recently played his last football game.  I knew at some point I wanted to use this title on a layout.  When Kerri said we were pairing up with Bella Boulevard this month and when I saw their Hello Autumn collection, I knew this is how I would scrap the photo and the song.

boys of fall sm

As a freshman and senior, our 2 boys had a unique opportunity this season to play together on the same team.  And a few weeks ago they had the opportunity to play in the same game.  That’s something pretty neat and pretty rare!  This photo is from that game; it’s a memory I know I’ll cherish for a long time, and so will they.

I cut the ‘fall’ title from the All About Fall set out of one of the woodgrain papers in the collection.


I then cut leaves (using the This+That: Autumn [Just Shapes]) from two more of the papers in the collection.  To make the leaves stand out against the background, I outlined them with a brown pen and then adhered them with pop dots for a little extra depth and dimension.


To add a few finishing touches, I used the One Fine Day stamp set to stamp a few strategically placed sentiments with brown ink.  I just love these stamps – ALL of Kerri’s stamps! – I love the words, the fonts, the design AND they stamp so crisply!


If you have a minute and want to watch a pretty neat music video, one that will give you a feel for where my heart was this football season with our senior and where my heart was when I made this layout, here you go  –  If you’re a softie like me, you might want to have the Kleenex handy.  I’m just saying’…. :)

[ Designs | All About Fall / This+That: Autumn. Stamps | One Fine Day ]

This page brings back so many memories! I love how Layle incorporated stamps into her page. It’s those subtle little details that help convey your message and bring the page together.

Oh boy, oh boy!

This is going to be a grand week as Bella Blvd and Kerri Bradford Studio team up every day to bring you fabulous ideas from our team members using Bella Blvd and KBS products.

I tell you what. I’ve been seeing sneak peeks and…ummmm…wow!

Can’t wait to show you what these talented ladies have done!

And I say…let’s get started!
Here’s an amazing inspiration art journal spread from our Miss Maggie.

Take it away Maggie….

I’m so excited to be here today with my VERY FIRST art journal page!

When Kerri told us we’d be teaming up with Bella Blvd. I was so stoked…I am a huge “Illustrated Faith” lover and the Whatever Is Lovely collection is one of my all-time favorites. Pair that with the Hello Autumn Collection and Kerri’s wicked amazing stamps and we have a match made in heaven.



OK, so a little backstory…our Life Group (bible study) is currently reading the book “Lord Change My Attitude,” and over and over again I’ve been so convicted by what I’ve read. So I thought this would be the perfect time to begin a little art journal in my study notebook…documenting some things I want to remember.

I grabbed Kerri’s “Thankful” stamp set (as well as her Travelogue & Wanderlust sets) and set to work documenting one of my favorite chapters in the book on Thankfulness.



There was really no rhyme or reason in the design of these pages…I just sort of started stamping and sticking and writing wherever there was room. And I love what evolved. 



I think one of my very favorite stamps ever is that little line of houses. For this page I stamped the houses in a light grey, traced over them with a black pen and colored them in with colored pencils.


These pages mean so much to me…and they were such a joy to create. These may have been my first art journal pages, but they will not be my last…I’ve found a new addiction. A huge thanks to both Kerri & Bella Blvd. for this awesome team-up!

This is just absolutely divine, Miss Maggie! I don’t even know where to begin with all the awesomeness there! I just love how you just blended everything together in perfect harmony. Yep. That about sums it up.

Now be sure to go check out Bella Blvd’s blog
and see what amazing creations they’ve made!

It’s going to be a really great week!

    Hi Kerri and Maggi,

    These pages look really fabulous. So fun, vibrant and energetic!! Now off to check Bella Blvd’s blog.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Kerri, I just totally love your stamps. Is there any chance that one day you will also ship to Europe? I would so much love to have the physical stamps, now I only can use the digital ones.
