It always seems like I’m thinking of my favorite this or my favorite that.

a song.

a food.

a friend.

a pair of pants.

my family.

So many favorites out there. That’s why this little 3×4 card is perfect for just about any occasion. It can be for a child or your family or a moment or a vacation spot…anything.

To download this–forever free–click HERE.

And because this also includes the usual cut files, you can bring it into Silhouette Studio and mix it up with some other cut files, like maybe turning it into month cards for your Project Life using a brush-script word from the On The Calendar kit.


How fun is that?

You know how I like to maximize my art. :)

    Awesome!! Thanks so much for the suggestion of mixing it with other cut files! I wasn’t planning on downloading originally, as it is not a sentiment I would probably use in my PL/Scrapbooking, but after seeing it with the month instead… I would TOTALLY use the card that way :)ReplyCancel

In the previous version of Silhouette Studio, you could only do a mass import of files if you were working with SVG files and the Designer Edition.

But all that has changed now with version 3.

You can now mass import DXF and JPG/PNG files into the Standard Studio edition.

I just want to get up and dance! (Okay, maybe that has something to do with So You Think You Can Dance being on right now.)

…but still…


like way exciting.

The other major improvement to Studio version 3 is the ability to easily add your own keywords and descriptions.

even more exciting. 

This is huge stuff for me…and I’m sure for you too.

And so now, with all this good stuff rolled up into this sweet little package, I thought it would be a grand idea to update my importing video…on account-a…some things have changed. Some great things!

This video is a from-start-to-finish process of using files from sources outside of the Silhouette store. Explaining how they come, which files you’ll want to use, and what you may need to do to use them, as well as how to create your own properties for each design.

This video is especially great if you are new to the Silhouette world or new to purchasing files from outside sources.

So sit back, relax, and enjoy the goodness that’s now in version 3.

    Kerri, as usual, you bring such useful info to us. I’ve been importing files from your store for quite some time and was so happy that I was able to “pop” them in my Silhouette folders so easily since this latest version.

    What I learned today is the differentiation between the various file formats. That was very useful.ReplyCancel

      Sherry, I think you’ll be good to go with the update that came out this month. I’ve been using the one before that and besides a large amount of text causing it to crash, it’s been pretty good. You can always go back if it’s causing problems, but I think you should be okay now. :)ReplyCancel

  • Ruth G - August 29, 2014 - 7:22 am

    I had no idea that you could import like that into Studio! That is wonderful! I have Designer Edition so I never know which type of file to choose to use. It’s good to know which one will come in with color (which I love, too)! Thanks so much for sharing!ReplyCancel

    Thank you for this tutorial. Unfortunately, when I right click on a file in the library, the only option I have is to “show properties” and there is no option to “edit properties” as shown in your video. Is that feature only available in the designer version (I have the standard version), or is there a menu somewhere that I’m supposed to enable that option? Thanks so much for your help!ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - August 29, 2014 - 4:44 pm

      It’s available in version 3–in both the standard edition and DE. You may want to make sure you’ve update to the latest, which is currently 3.1.417. Your software may not say it needs to be updated due to a glitch.ReplyCancel

  • Liana S. - September 2, 2014 - 7:16 pm

    Thank you so much for this video! It’s exactly what I needed today as I import hundreds of files one by one. However, I don’t have the latest standard version. It’s saying that I have the lastest, and I don’t know how to force update it. Any tips? Thanks!ReplyCancel

  • Cherri - September 2, 2014 - 8:44 pm

  • Jeanene - September 11, 2014 - 9:41 am

    Kerri – Thanks for posting this. I finally sat down to move a bunch of stuff from your store. I downloaded the latest version of the software (not designer edition) and unzipped all the files. I had no trouble moving the png files, but the SVG files all appear with an Internet Explorer icon and won’t move to the library. Do you have any idea what could be causing that?ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - September 11, 2014 - 11:12 am

      If you don’t have the Designer Edition, then you need to use the DXF files instead.
      Am I correct in reading that you don’t have DE?ReplyCancel

    I just bought a bunch of the christmas files from your store. I am attempting to move them into the Silhouette library but I get a message that “the file type I am attempting to access is not supported” I have the latest version, I have unzipped the file, I have used your files previously, some work fine others get the same message. I am trying to use the DXF files but the png’s are not working either. I am currently trying it on Christmas Magic. Any suggestions of what is wrong?ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - July 15, 2015 - 7:17 am

      Out of curiosity, what happens if you try File/Open. I’d heard from someone else that after the update on their ‘critical update’ this summer, that they could no longer do a mass dump. I don’t know if it’s a glitch or going to be a new thing. I’m hoping it’s a glitch. But let me know what happens if you do the File/Open.ReplyCancel

I can hardly believe it’s time.

A good chunk of kids are back in school now.

Even Kass had her very last first day of school yesterday. She’ll be graduating with her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography at the end of the school year.

Crazy, right?

Summer is  pretty much over, I’d say.

Believe it or not, the leaves on several trees around town are already changing–including the big maple tree in our neighbor’s yard across the street. Yes, there is definite orangeage. Kind of strange for August.

I thought I’d save the best for last and have a school themed Two-Fer Tuesday.

Today’s kit includes all the days of the week for all your activities and goings-ons throughout the school year. 



And now, for the 2.99 sale items!

Remember, these are on sale for today only.

More school supplies that I’m sure you’ll need. :)

    Can you share what purchased font you used in School Years kit? I purchased it to use for my children’s art collection albums, but wanting to make the title (and age 1, age 2, etc) to match your kit. Thank you SO much, I love all your designs and classes!ReplyCancel

I love numbers (and letters). It’s one of my most very favorite items to use as accents on a page. It’s simple–almost seems like a no-brainer–but it adds so much. It might explain why so much of what I create revolves around words and numbers. ;)

So I thought perhaps I’d share a few ways of how to incorporate numbers in a little different fashion.

1  |  The Bigger The Better

I remember there was a life before Silhouette–if you can call it that. It was called the Dark Ages. If we wanted a hand-cut title, we had to print text in reverse and cut it with an X-Acto knife. Simple shapes were only cut by using templates. How did we even get anything done with all that tedious cutting?

I was at the mercy of the industry. My wants and needs were only met if, and only if, the industry was able to satisfy them. It was a sad time. Full of despair. I wanted what I wanted. I wanted instant gratification.

I was denied, always denied.

One day, while at a trade show, I came across a company that sold large diecut numbers. Oh how the number gods smiled on me that day. We’re talking 7″ tall…9″ tall…..they were divine. The company allowed me to pick a number or two and I chose 3 and 9, because that’s what I was turning that year. (If I could find this page, I would include it, but alas, it’s in some stack somewhere.)

I love big numbers and I cannot lie.

Not only are they a marvelous accent for your page, but they’re also informative. And with our digital craft cutters, we can now do any number in any size in any color or pattern.

Can I get an amen!

One of my favorite looks is to use that large number as an accent, background or even flying solo in a Project Life pocket 3×4. I like them both in positive and negative (in white cardstock is divine) or printed extending beyond the boundaries…looking a little something like these.


(Font:  Poster Bodini or Gourmandise)

And just because I like them big, doesn’t mean they have to consume the page, but they can be a focus or key element.

Here’s where I used a similar style number for a page in the Design Secrets class. Aaaaand notice the number border going along the side.


So this may seem an obvious choice in using numbers, but it’s one of my favorite ways of using an accent.

2  |  Do As The Romans Do

Part of my obsession with numbers has to be with using them in unique ways. And my latest fascination is creating a date–a year, in particular–using a Roman Numeral style. Okay, so maybe that is combining my love of alphas and numbers, but you get the gist.

I was playing with some different options for some dates. I have to admit, I like the 1900 dates because you get to use MCM to make 19 and oodles of other letters to make up the very big year. 2014 doesn’t have as much meat to its look, but it’s still fun nonetheless.

You could make some really cute stacked styles.
I’m partial to a black and white color scheme myself.


You could staple them to a photo or to other tags, looking something like this:


But then you could also just make one line of letters and put it on a cute tag shape too!
Yes, this is the year Dan+I got married…and yes, that’s us. ;)
I just had to show off how long that number is! You figure it out.


3  |  Location. Location. Location.

Now we get to combine two of my favorite passions: numbers and travel. 

In this modern age of you know where everyone is because your phone knows where you are, GPS coordinates are a great addition to the numbers family.

In my recent Here There Everywhere class, I used GPS coordinates of locations that I’d been to, like on this page here:


I think this is seriously one of my favorite accents in my whole album. Simple, but just adds something totally fresh and different. Nothing you could ever buy–specific to Silver Creek, Idaho? Maybe some of the big cities. But this way you can make something totally personal for your own needs by just using a few little ol’ numbers. Search for GPS coordinates online and you’ll find something you can plug a place into and get numbers.

Needs. Wants. Instant gratification.

We live in a marvelous world, indeed.

I give it a 10.

  • Barbara - August 25, 2014 - 4:39 pm

    Love the idea of the roman numerals – I used to be obsessed with them in grade school (maybe it was because I was good at interpreting them and others were not). Now I am going to use that idea in my albums – thank you. I also love using the larger numbers but never seem to get it to look right.ReplyCancel

    how did you do the little GPS tag?? so cute!!ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - August 25, 2014 - 8:06 pm

      You could create it with a text box in Word or PS or whatever.
      Add color to the box and type your text.
      It’s pretty easy. :)ReplyCancel

Okay, so this may not necessarily be a ‘summer’ related freebie, but it’s what came to mind for me yesterday. I always have to go with the flow and the flow was feeling retro. And it could fit into a summer page easily…not to mention a Project Life spread. ;)

Something simple and sweet. Comes in the usual cut files–as well as a PNG. That way you can change colors to tickle your fancy for your own project.

Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

ETA: So this morning I woke up and decided I needed to add this serendipitous creation to today’s freebie. I had been messing with a different set of words when I was making the original freebie and I moved them off to the side and out of the way. In doing so, I made a little something like this new freebie. Thought they made a nice set and should stay together.  :)

So today….you get a two-fer!

    • Kerri - August 22, 2014 - 3:37 pm

      Hey Vicki! To change color you can use the DXF file if you’re using the standard edition or the SVG file with the Designer Edition. The PNG file you can use in something like Photoshop/Elements and change the color. I have tutorials on my site that show how to use various files. You can find them under the Tutorials link.

      Hope that helps. :)ReplyCancel

One of the best ways to maximize your time in making cards is to make a card that’s universal in design and then you can swap out the sentiment. A few KBS handwritten words are just the ticket!

Make several to keep on hand too.

Miss Nichol has done just that with these bright and cheery cards!


[ DesignsCounty Fair (popcorn used for clouds) / Happy Stuff (happy birthday and hello there) / This+That: Freedom (sunburst) / Thank My Lucky Stars (stars) / You Got This ]

These would totally brighten my day if I was the recipient of one of them.

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I love seeing if I can create a card entirely from die cuts. This idea came to me when I was trying to come up with a way to make a set of cards using Kerri’s super awesome script-style phrases. I knew I wanted the phrases die cut from black but I needed a way to make the greetings on the cards “pop”! A rainbow sunshine was just the answer!

I used one of my all-time favorite shapes the starburst from the This & That: Freedom Kit, die cutting it from white cardstock and then cutting the design again from ten different colors of cardstock. To get the cut out or “negative shapes” I simply fashioned a  square the same size as the starburst (4 inches) around the starburst design and it created all the little sun rays.

I pieced the design together on another 4″ square of white cardstock for the die cut inlay technique that is so hot right now. I colored in all the bright sun rays with the clear Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Marker and also cut a 1.25″ circle from the yellow cardstock for the center of the sun.

I knew I wanted a cloud to cover the bottom half of the design as a great place to glue the die cut greeting as well as a place to stamp a little phrase. Because Kerri didn’t have a cloud shape in her library at the time I made these, I used a popcorn kernel from the new County Fair kit, resizing it big to fit the bottom half of the design. Stars die cut from the same cardstock as the rays using Kerri’s Thank My Lucky Stars Kit and embellished with Glossy Accents complete these happy cards!

Happy cards is right!

Now, if you are hooked on these brush-script words, here’s another fun kit for you to use. These would look awesome cut and placed on a card for Project Life!

A couple weeks ago we encountered one very strange afternoon.

It was about 2:30 when I was up on my bed, trying to work through a couple emails. I’d gotten behind on work because I’d been camping with the girls. I was deeply engrossed in looking for something when my husband came up and asked, ‘Aren’t you going to go get Zach’s check?’

Our son was gone for two weeks for a university photo class in Capitol Reef and had asked us to deposit his paycheck. Since it was now Friday, we figured it was time to do that.

I just needed to get this one thing done first.

Feeling annoyed that my husband had interrupted my train of thought and feeling that he thought my nose was always in the computer (it may be true, but It’s called work folks…it’s what I do), I was agitated as I closed my computer, task not finished, and bustled off down the stairs, grabbing the keys on my way to the car. I felt the need to express my annoyance in my irritated voice as we both walked out to the car.

I also decided to drive and this shoulder problem I have made itself known as I backed out of the driveway, turning the wheel, and I let out a low ‘Ow.

We proceeded down State Street and arrived at Zach’s place of business, which happens to be near the Orem City Center–the location of the library, police station, ball parks and stuff like that.

With check in hand, we headed off to the bank at the north end of town.

On our way down State Street, Dan gets a call from the 911 police dispatch. Apparently he’d somehow ‘butt-dialed’ the ‘Emergency’ 911 button on his phone. He still doesn’t know how he did it because his phone was locked.

We have no idea when he’d called or how long they were listening, but they must have at least heard me using my irritated+annoyed voice. There was no yelling on either part, just typical husband and wife irritated bantering. And who knows, maybe they heard me say ow.

So if you are unaware, when you call 911 and no one responds, they call you back and make sure everything is okay. He assured them it was all good and then we arrived at the bank.

While I ran into the bank, he gets another phone call informing him that the police were on their way to make sure things were okay.


Okaaaay. They asked where he was, he replied, and we were told to wait.

We moved over under the trees and within a couple minutes we saw the police officer. As he was walking over, we saw another police officer on the side street.


Apparently they’d just had domestic abuse training and were instructed to check out all possible cases.

I think they could tell from our laughing and waving as they were walking over that we did not fit into that mold, but still, it had to be confirmed.

Each officer took us aside and we shared our stories. Dan even told his police officer ‘she could take me.’ (ha ha) He also mentioned that our old neighbor of many years was so-n-so. He is also a police officer. If there was ever any evidence of inappropriate behavior, he would have known. You can hear everything. ;)

What we didn’t know, until I was talking with my officer, is that they were watching us via the GPS on his phone the whole time. I think the most hysterically ironical part of this whole story is that we drove just shy of the police station to pick up Zach’s check, which is across the street.

I can see how that might cause some concern when you don’t know what’s really going on. Perhaps I was driving to the station because of the ‘alleged abuse.’

I mean, really. What are the odds??? I’ve never picked up Zach’s check for him.

But here’s where it takes another strange turn of events. While I was talking with my officer, he had his hand up to his chest and was talking. I asked him what he was saying and then realized he was talking to dispatch.

After Dan and I had given our names, birth dates and phone number, we all got together and began chatting. Dan’s officer said, ‘What was this about a warrant for her arrest.’


In total disbelief, and with my hand to my chest, I exclaimed, ‘For me??!!!’ I’ve never even had a speeding ticket!

Imagine my relief when I found out it was someone my officer had just seen walk into the bank.  A person that they’d been on the lookout for.

How crazy was that???

I think Dan + I were just floored at that hour of time.

Our ‘dispute’ (can’t really even call it that) had led to the capture of someone they’d been looking for.

It doesn’t get much more serendipitous than that.

I’m just happy that we could do our civic duty.



And now, because I feel naked without a photo in a post, here’s s picture from our weekend in Idaho Falls for Dan’s niece’s wedding.

This was one of the many views of the walk along the Snake River. If I could have just sat on a bench here in the shade of the trees and listen to the falls of the river, I would have been a happy camper.

    Oh, this story was just fabulous! How funny, and sort of embarrassing at the same time! Way to go to get a criminal captured! :)ReplyCancel

    Oh my GOODNESS! I just read the Zach scam story and that just infuriates me, but beyond that, some criminal knew way too much about your family! I am glad that there was a happy ending and that you were kind enough to spread the word about that horrible scam.ReplyCancel

    I saw that this post wasn’t craft related and started to move on. But being a fan of the mystery genre I kept reading. Thank s for sharing your story. It brought a smile to my face.ReplyCancel

    I read this with a giant smile on my face. Sometimes things happen for just the right reasons. I’m glad it wasn’t you with a warrant, that would have been awful.

    This story reminds me of an incident that happened when I was little. My friend said that if you called your phone number backwards, something cool would happen. Then she started dialing her number in reverse. Well, the last four digits of her number were 8119. So she dialed 911 and it automatically called emergency who sent out a firetruck. She learned a good lesson that day, but it was even better that the firemen were there because 5 houses down, a house fire had started while no one was home to even call 911. Lesson learned and house saved at the same time.ReplyCancel
