The Summer of the Friday Freebie continues today with this totally fun frame.
It’s got the look of a Polaroid, but with a ‘twist of  line’. ;)
I’m totally digging negative space these days, so this just hits the spot for me. 


To download this frame, click on the image or click HERE.


And to showcase the frame, I had to use the cute photo of my daughter that I shared on Facebook the other day. If you missed it, this is the photo (only headshot-ish) that she’s using for her [LDS] mission papers, which should be going in very soon!

So crazy!

In the History Project I talk about memory flashes. Those tiny little bits of a memory that flashes in your head when you hear a song, or smell a flower, or see something that reminds you of ‘the time….’

These types of things need to be written quickly, because as fast as they come into your head, they can leave and never return. That’s when you need to record this random memory moment.

I recently had one of those. Okay….so maybe I actually have them a lot considering my mindset on this History Project coupled with the fact that we seem to be going through a lot of my mom’s stuff lately .(Yeah, it’s been nine years since she passed, but the stuff keeps coming.)

Anyway, my sister found some boxes of dishes that belonged to my mom and this glass was in one of them.


I don’t really remember these glasses from my mom, but rather, my aunt had some similar glasses and that’s where the flash came–that random memory moment.

When I lived with my aunt in North Carolina she had several types of plates and goblets and every Sunday we got to pick from these special sets of dishes and use them for Sunday dinner. She had some glasses similar to this and it just reminded me how fun it was to pick a different set of fun patterned dishes and crafted glasses for that extra special meal…every week.

It makes me wish I’d have started that tradition with my own family. Why didn’t I ever think about doing that? 

So next time you have a memory flash, be sure to take a couple minutes to just write it down–even if it’s just a couple sentences on your smartphone, because chances are you won’t remember it later. And if it’s something you can take a photo of to help the memory? Do that too.

Needing a fun and fresh idea for some quick cards?

Well, look no further.

Check out what Laura has made with the Sliders shapes!

 



[ Shapes | Sliders (frames)/ Summer Lovin’ (hello) / Say What #3 (happy) / Design Team Picks (hello, thanks), This+That: Summertime (butterfly) / This+That: School (house) / Love: Every Little Thing (flower) / ‘Home’ Freebie ]


Those are so awesome!
I love the variety and simplicity behind them.
You could whip these up to have on hand in no time.

Perfect, just perfect Laura!


Here’s what Laura has to say:

I wanted to whip up a simple batch of cards, and I thought the polaroid frames from the Slider kit would be a great starting point for all of the cards. I used a few 6×6 paper pads from Basic Grey for all of the pieces on these cards, as the smaller scaled patterns are perfect for cards. I arranged four 6×6 pieces of paper on my cutting mat at once, which allowed me to cut pieces for multiple cards at the same time. I adhered each polaroid frame on a white card base that I misted lightly with tan spray mist. I dug around in Kerri’s kits to find sentiment words and a few basic shapes, such as the butterfly, flower, and house. I added a threaded button to most of the card to finish them off. Super simple and now I have some cute cards to add to my stash for sending out to family and friends.

  • Sue Alg - July 23, 2013 - 5:43 am

    Love them. You are right–they are simple but what a nice variety. Off to my Silhouette to create some of these. Thanks, Laura, for the wonderful ideas.ReplyCancel

  • Ruth G - July 23, 2013 - 1:49 pm

    Fabulous! Sweet, but meaningful and who could dislike something that comes together so quickly and is still so great? Thanks so much for sharing, Kerri and Laura!ReplyCancel

  • Helen G. - July 23, 2013 - 2:18 pm

    These are wonderfully done! Thank you for the inspirations, Kerri and Laura!ReplyCancel

Hi I am a huge fan!! I am from Sheridan WY and I love my cameo, my favorite feature is being able to size things to fit in just the right spot. Thanks for the awesome contest…can’t wait for the class.

Hilary – JULY 21, 2013 – 1:48 AM
Hi. I’m from the UK, currently living in Malaysia, moving back to the UK in 3 weeks. Betcha can’t guess what’s going in my case and not my shipping? Yep, my Silhouette – i love it THAT much, because it can create virtually anything I want. I’ve done two of your classes so far, I’m currently doing the third (Just Add Colour), and they have really helped me to get the most of it. So thanks – and if you fancy giving me a housewarming present, the new class would be perfect…. ;-)

Melissa S – JULY 21, 2013 – 9:16 AM
Melissa from Nova Scotia, Canada
I’d love to win a spot in your new class. It sounds amazing. I love being able to re-size objects to whatever size I need. Thanks for the chance to win!

Congratulations! You randomly drawn lovelies have won a seat in my new Design Secrets class! Email me at kerri@kerribradford.com and I will get you all hooked up!


I can’t even tell you just how excited I am to bring you this new class!
It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure. ;)

I’ve never done anything like this class either.
I’m actually sharing my personal designing secrets.
Tricks I’ve never shared with anyone.

 . . . until now.

You’ll learn how to make titles come together beautifully.

You’ll learn how to utilize Silhouette Studio for your designing pleasure.

You’ll learn how to maximize your art.

And so much more.

And of course there’s always the freebies, right?
Gotta have the freebies.
That’s at least a $10 value right there!

This is an Intermediate class and it’s highly recommended that you will have at least taken Oh The Places You Will Go and perhaps even Just Add Color and/or have the equivalent knowledge base. You might feel a little lost if your Studio skills are not up to speed.

You do not need the Designer Edition for this class–only the standard Studio edition.

This is a self-paced class, meaning you can sign up whenever and take it whenever–with an original start date of the September 2.


And guess what.

You can save 20% off this class
until the start date of September 2.

Woooooo-weeee!


And if you even know me at all,
you know I can’t make an announcement like this without one of these. :)



That’s right.
It’s giveaway time!

I’m giving away three spots in my new class.

To be entered:
Leave a comment with your name, where you’re from,
and your favorite Silhouette feature.

I’ll draw the winners first thing Monday morning.


so excited.

If there’s one thing summer is known for, it’s fresh fruits and veggies.

Seriously.

Is there anything better than a fresh picked apple or tomato or red potatoes dug up from the garden? Or if you don’t have your own garden, do you hit the local farmer’s markets just to have that sweet taste of something so fresh, that buying them in the store just isn’t really worth it?

I guess that’s why when Naomi showed me her page, I could soooo totally relate. Being able to pick off a fresh strawberry or gather raspberries to put on some ice cream was a regular summertime treat growing up for me. One tends to get a little spoiled when one has fresh fruits and veggies a short walk out the back door.

Love the colors Miss Naomi used on this page…especially how they have been intertwined into the circles! Great summertime page!
