I knew I needed a dragonfly for a Summer Friday Freebie.

knew it. 

And when I started making it, my mind wandered to making a Project Life style card, because, let’s face it…it would be cute in a little pocket, right?

So here is today’s freebie for y’all.

dragonfly_card_example


To download this–forever free–click HERE.


I also needed some text with it too. And ‘there is beauty all around’ seemed only fitting. Of course you could change it up and add your own text. Or make it a ‘thank you’ card (or some other sentiment) to send someone.

So here’s my little rendition of it. Just needed to add me a photo.

Now I just need to put it in a pocket. ;)

    Oh this is so beautiful! I love the freebie – will use it for my summer themed projects! Thanks so much for sharing it with us <3ReplyCancel

    Your photo just “makes” that card, Kerri! Beautiful! Love love dragonflies!ReplyCancel

  • Cindy - July 11, 2014 - 7:20 am

    Kerri,
    When I downloaded the file I had some problems. Now that I have it downloaded the svg file doesn’t automatically open the silhouette. How do I get it to open or put it in Silhoutte? Is it me having a senior moment?
    Thanks!ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - July 11, 2014 - 7:30 am

      Have you been able to double-click on the SVG file before to open it in the program automatically? It may be that you’ve changed some setting in your operating software. I think you can right click on the filename and tell it to always open Silhouette Studio.

      Otherwise, you can just do File/Open within Studio or do Import To Library and that would get it in too.ReplyCancel

    Hi Kerri!

    I have enjoyed some of your classes through the Jessica Sprague site and your awesome video tutorials through Lain’s True Scraps & Stamps events and I’m so excited to have found your site today! I just finished watching your To Die For Seminar through Lain’s site which directed me here!

    I have filled my wish list with your classes and I found all of these wonderful freebies that you have gift everyone and I wanted to take a moment to tell you how thankful I am for you! You have taken my Silhouette-ing to a whole new level and I can’t wait to learn even more with the new classes I found today! Thank you, thank you, thank you so much for you!
    Blessings,

That Lain Ehmann. She is such a hoot! If you don’t know who she is, she is the queen bee over all things True Scrap. I marvel at her creativity and wit with each new event that she plans. I’d like to know where her mind goes at night….or maybe I wouldn’t. ;)

If you’ve been part of those events, you know I’ve done a couple make-n-takes for it, which have been really fun.

And when she asked if I’d do a webinar….or excuse me….scrapinar with her, of course I had to say yes!

So here’s a peek at what we’ll  be making Monday (July 14) evening.

nyc-closeup


It’s all about designing your diecuts. Otherwise entitled: Diecuts To Die For.

It’s all about utilizing your resources to customize your own printable art. You’ll get all the goodies to make the embellishments and I’ll be showing you how to do it all.

And you know what’s cool? You can use Silhouette Studio  to design with even if you don’t have a Silhouette. It’s like a smaller version of Illustrator, which is pretty sweet.  So all but the ampersand will be an easy cut without the machine.

So go get yer-self registered now HERE

If you pre-register by the live Monday event, you’ll have access to the replay for a limited time–but you have to pre-register!

The day: Monday, July 14
The time: 6 p.m. MT / 8 p.m. ET

Be there or be square.

And leave me a comment here and let me know if you’re comin’ so I can be sure to ‘say hi’! :)

    ~God bless~ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - July 9, 2014 - 1:36 pm

      I think a lot of the information can transfer to SCAL. I’ve played with SCAL and while some things you do differently, the principles are still the same. So I think you’ll be okay.

      You can always download Studio and play with it there during class.

      And Darlene, I’m coming over and you can’t get up until you are done. ;)ReplyCancel

Did y’all have a good Fourth of July…or Canada Day?

I don’t know about where you live, but we still have people doing fireworks. Like I mentioned before, we have a 24th of July holiday that ‘requires’ fireworks, so they pretty much go all month long, even though they aren’t suppose to. :)

Well, if you have some photos to scrap, like I do, these Tiny Details will come in handy. 

america


There are some that are more generically loving the country rather than Fourth of July specific. That way you can use them for the holiday or if you go on a trip in this amazing country. And because I liked both ‘love this place’ and ‘i love america’….I included them both.

And, they aren’t just PNG files, they also include ‘cut’ files, even though you probably wouldn’t use them for cutting, but you can use them for changing colors to match your own color scheme. Sweet!


And now for the 2.99 kits for today….and today only.

Since I know you have a plethora of photos to scrap, here are more photo templates on sale.

storyboard-1    storyboard-2storyboard3    storyboard4storyboard5    storyboard6


Don’t forget. These prices go away tomorrow.

  • Dolly - July 8, 2014 - 6:42 am

    LOVE LOVE LOVe the tiny details!! those are fabulous little details at that Kerri!!
    Oh my I do wish I had a clue how to do the storyboards, I know you have full instructions…they just intimidate the heck out of me! LOL
    looks like a quick way to get some photos scrapped so as soon as I get a new printer (don’t think selphy is gonna cut it LOL) I may have to give them a whirl!ReplyCancel

  • Ann Rhoads - July 8, 2014 - 9:13 am

    If I get these I would like to try using the cut files with a sketch pen! I hope someone can try.ReplyCancel

Ever since summer started and we started getting brochures for the upcoming summer events for our local city and county, the fair or carnival has been on my mind.

The rides. The food. The games. The craft booths.

It’s just a grand ol’ time, is it not?

And that is what inspired me to make this kit.

county-fair

 

Lots  of fun possibilities here. You know me and variety. :) And on those lights? There are two versions–one where you can layer colors on top of a base and one where you can cut vellum circles for a translucent look.

And those 3×4 cards? Yeah, cut it from white…it’s my favorite thing right now.

And how cool would that ticket/candy booth be going up the side of your page?

county-fair-card


Now I need to go to the carnival so I can take some photos ;)

Lots of fireworks have been going off ’round these parts this week. Seems to keep going until much later at night than it should, I think. Maybe it’s just that we’re getting old. ;)

But today is a day of celebrating this country that we love so much and the freedom we enjoy that has come at great cost to many over the history of this nation. I am truly grateful for all the sacrifices made.

Lots of fun happens on this day too.

Parades. Picnics. Family. Friends. BBQs. Fireworks.

It all makes for a very exciting day.

And we have our own little fireworks display goin’ on here at KBS! Check it out!

fourth-sale

That’s right! Just like this day, this sale will end when the day is over….unlike the fireworks by my house that will continue going on for a couple more days. We celebrate a state holiday on the 24th too, so they really go pretty much all of July.

But this sale won’t be lasting all month.

It’s for the Fourth of July only!
So get signed up for that class you wanted today…it’s an awesome deal!

Price is already reflected in the store. 


______________________________


And now for this week’s Summer Friday Freebie. I’ve been having a serious issue lately…I can’t seem to get enough white cards lately. First it’s backgrounds, now it’s cards.

Here’s what I cut out last night to use for something….

fourth-freebie


Yep. Love it cut from white.

And never fear…I got one for my Canadian friends too! I know y’all just celebrated Canada Day on the first of July.

So here’s something for everyone to use, really. Anyone with a fireworks page that they need to do. You can replace it with your own word or just use the fireworks alone. Use it as a card or use the innards as a decoration. Options, baby!

So the other night, we had the question that we pretty much hear every night:

What’s for dinner?

Oh, how I detest that question. If I was organized and had meals planned, it probably wouldn’t bother me so much.

Well, this night  we opted for eating out. It was Jordan’s pick (she only gets special treatment for so long though) and the three of us just couldn’t stomach the thought of going to Zupas (which we used to like).

So instead she picked a place she enjoyed going to with her friends:

Station 22

station-22-a

 

Believe it or not, I didn’t take any pictures of our food, which was very good. A little pricey, but it’s a fun ambiance. What they are known for is their soda wall. Sodas from all over the country.

station-22-b

 

Our waitress said she liked this one on the left. She said it’s what sunscreen should taste like. It was a pretty bottle, anyway. Love the packaging on so many of the bottles…like this one that Jordan opted for. Pretty funny.

station-22-3station-22-4


Anyway, if you’re in Provo, Utah some time, give Station 22 a whirl. It’s a fun little place.

  • Michelle Liimatainen - July 3, 2014 - 8:26 pm

    AMEN! And THANK YOU so much for saying it out loud!!!! I absolutely DETEST that question. I have a son that asks me first thing in the morning. I haven’t had coffee yet and he’s worried about dinner. Then he asks me again when he gets home from school. I want to rip my hair out. I hate that question.

    It’s so nice to see you spending time with your girl. Enjoy.ReplyCancel

  • Cindy Brooks - July 4, 2014 - 12:12 am

    This looks like a fun place! We sometimes stay in SLC, but more often are traveling through on our way to St. George to visit family. I’ll have to check the location for convenience. If you like soda walls be sure to check out Pops if you’re ever near Arcadia, OK. They have over 600 sodas! It’s especially fun at night when the giant neon pop bottle is lit!

    Thanks for the recommendation! My daughter just moved back to Provo to finish her degree and I am staying with her for a bit to help her settle in. We’ll be sure to try Station 22–our current favorite is India Palace on Center Street. Excellent Indian food.ReplyCancel

Gotcha confused by that title?

Well, today’s Two-Fer is minus one Two-Fer.

Which meeeeeaaaaaans, that there are sale items, but no new kit.

And that’s becaaaauuuuuuse of the ‘plus one’ in the house.

jordan-costa-vida


This cute little twink had to come home from her mission in Jacksonville Florida  for health reasons. It has been quite the whirlwind these past few days. We found out on Wednesday that she’d still been struggling to get healthy over the past month and that it was a strong possibility that she’d have to come home to get better. On Thursday we found out that she was for sure coming home and we picked her up Friday night. She can return after six months (it’s a mandatory waiting period for all medical-issue missionaries) and finish the remaining time, but she doesn’t have to. She’s considered to have served a mission.

Her choice of “I’m back and I want to eat at….” dinner location? Had to be Costa Vida, which is where I took this picture of her. And she happened to have come home on a cool day when the high was only 77 degrees and when you’re coming from 90s and 90%+ humidity? Felt good to us and cold to her. :)

I have to admit, it’s fun having her home, but it’s also very emotionally conflicting for them when they have to return home sooner than expected. But everything happens for a reason and she is where she is suppose to be.

So we’ve been spending our last few days getting ready for her to come back as well as just spend some QT with her in general now that she’s home. And therefore, the kit I had been working on last week for today isn’t quite finished.

But I do have a sneak peek at what’s coming. Should be available by the week’s end.

county-fair-sneak



And now, for the 2.99-er sale items!

Remember, they are on sale for today only.

And because I’m lacking one two-fer, I’m adding a couple extra sale items for the fun of it.

  • Melissa Bell - July 1, 2014 - 1:03 pm

    Big hugs to your daughter! I came home from my mission after only having been in the MTC for three weeks. But right from the start I could see God’s guiding hand. I actually remained a missionary at home for three months with my mom as my companion. It was a challenging time but a time where I learned so much about myself and what Heavenly Father had in store for me. I wouldn’t change a thing and I don’t have any regrets for not “serving” the mission I had set out to serve. :)ReplyCancel

  • Lynette - July 1, 2014 - 1:48 pm

    The new kit looks like a blast! Don’t stress about getting it done super fast. We understand that things happen, especially when it’s involving your family and health issues. I hope that being home can help Jordan get healthy, and that she will be able to do whatever she chooses and feel good about it once the 6 month period is up.ReplyCancel

  • Viv - July 1, 2014 - 3:10 pm

    Best to Jordan! She’s such a cutie -she won’t be down for long! I’m sure the time spent out in the field has already been a great learning experience! Miss you guys. :)ReplyCancel

This is my motto that I pretty much live by.

I don’t take anything for granted and enjoy even the smallest of things or moments.

It’s what I feel creates a happy life because you’re always appreciating….well….everything.

Perspective is key to a happy life.

And that’s why I love this page from Layle that showcases her backyard and the peacefulness it brings to her. I can relate to that. Okay, not my backyard because the dog owns it, but I have other places that do the same thing for me.

I love the lines of the titles and the photos and the circles here.
And the odd circle backed by some patterned paper.
It’s just lovely.


Here’s what Layle has to say:

If you’ve been following Kerri’s blog for a while, it’s no secret that I love her word cut files, especially the hand written ones!  I used the Find Joy in the Ordinary phrase on this layout because it’s something we should all remember to do on a daily basis.  These photos are from our backyard – it’s such a nice, quiet, peaceful place to be.  I always try to take a few minutes every day in the summer to sit outside and enjoy it.  I paired that phrase with the circle background.  I wanted the background to blend in, so it cut it in white and then mounted on white cardstock with pop dots – lots of little pop dots!  I like the look of the tone on tone, raised look.  To finish it off, I used one of the circle insides to trace some circles and tuck them under the circle background.


I’m finding joy in this page Layle…although I’d say it’s extraordinary. :)
