i love this smile

We have a special treat coming from Miss Naomi today!
Absolutely gorgeous!

[ Shapes | More Background Basics (diamond background) / Say What #2 (title) ]

I love the way Naomi did that diamond background! Sometimes a ‘harlequin’ design can be a really strong-looking element, but not on this page. Uh uh. It’s so soft and subtle. Mmmmm . . .  love it!

It’s just stunning! ♥

new project life: cinnamon edition

Just a few short (short) months ago, our darling Miss Becky Higgins asked if I would like to participate in creating another edition of her amazing Project Life system. Having had so much fun designing the Turquoise edition, of course I had to say yes!

The minute she asked–and before I knew for sure I was going to do one, mind you–my brain started spinning with ideas and color schemes and all that gloriousness. I was on overload! I just had this urge to do something that wasn’t the necessarily the current trend. I wanted to do something that I knew would be usable regardless of girl or boy. Something that was very graphic with words and such . . . ’cause we all know how I like to do that. :) And when Becky said, ‘Okay, go for it. Cinnamon is yours,’ I was ecstatic! Her vision for the kit was right along with all those ideas in my head.

It was meant to be.

It’s tough keeping a secret like this when you just get so darned excited about it! And then, you start seeing all the other artists’ fabulous renditions and you just about burst at the seams!

If you haven’t been to Becky’s blog to see the full announcement, you should do that HERE. She is sharing the catalog PDF and all I can say is oh my freakin’ heck! How do they expect people to choose???

Fabulous. Just fabulous.

It was wonderful to be amongst all these amazing designers!

Kimberly Church – Wedding Mini Kit
Nisa Fiin - Rain Edition
Tiffani Smith – Kraft Edition
Kerri Bradford – Cinnamon Edition
    (hey, that’s me!)

Lori Whitlock – Honey Edition + Childhood Mini Kit
Liz Tamanaha – Midnight Edition

So you know, I’ve just been dying to show you this kit for some time now.
You got to see a little sneak of it in the catalog, but here’s an even bigger look at it!

Okay, whew. It’s grand to get that ‘secret’ off my chest now.
I’m gonna go see this in person on Sunday at CHA.
Kind-a excited about that. :)
Kristie M - January 7, 2013 - 4:17 pm

This is definitely the kit I will be using for Project Life 2014. It is beautiful! I absolutely love all the brown, grey and blue colors. Wow! Thank you!

Ann C. - January 7, 2013 - 4:33 pm

Oh wow… beautiful Kerri! Very chic and right up my alley. I think when the digi editions of the kits come out, I’ll be using a few of them this year (why pick just one? Wheeeee!). But for now, I’m starting with Cherry since I already bought the paper version. And I wish us “regular” people could go to CHA. How fun would that be….

Rosemary E. - January 7, 2013 - 5:40 pm

Once again Kerri, you blow my mind! LOVE your design. How do you get in my head and know what I want when I don’t even know what I want yet. :)

Cindy - January 7, 2013 - 5:48 pm

Wow, this is absolutely beautiful. Can’t wait to purchase this one! I like some of the others too, but not as much as this one. AWESOME job!!

Briana - January 7, 2013 - 6:27 pm

This would be fantastic for the heritage version of PL I was planning!

Sandy - January 7, 2013 - 6:30 pm

Absolutely my favorite of all the new lines. So beautiful!! Will definitely get this one. So beautiful!!

Chris R - January 7, 2013 - 6:32 pm

I love this version!! It will be the one I order for 2014!! You did an awesome job designing it!!

Heather - January 7, 2013 - 6:36 pm

I agree, I didn’t even know how much I wanted this (the colors, the designs…) until I saw it. It’s so perfect!!

Jackie - January 7, 2013 - 6:38 pm

This was my absolute favourite, it’s so classy and gorgeous. Cant wait to get his one

ashley - January 7, 2013 - 6:43 pm

This is gorgeous!! Great work Kerri.

Terri Torrez - January 7, 2013 - 6:51 pm

This is just gorgeous. Is the album black? I’m still trying to decide on an album and I just love this design.

Megan B - January 7, 2013 - 6:58 pm

I LOVE this!! The gold, grey, brown and navy combo is making my heart pitter patter. :)

Colleen H - January 7, 2013 - 7:05 pm

Gorgeous! Love the richness of it!

Rhadonda - January 7, 2013 - 7:15 pm

Congrats on being a designer for PL again. Of course the products are A.MAZ.ING!!! I can’t imagine how that must feel. I am doing mostly digital so going to wait until they go digital. Have fun at CHA.

Melanie A. - January 7, 2013 - 7:59 pm

I should have known after loving Turquoise that this was also your doing! I absolutely love this! love love love the colors and the images and the words! 2014 here we come! okay that was really funny considering we just started 2013 LOL. Have fun at CHA!

Trell - January 7, 2013 - 8:01 pm

You really hit a homerun with this one Ms. Bradford. Makes a guy like me get really excited about scrapping!

Donna Cartagena - January 7, 2013 - 8:21 pm

Beautiful colors .. love the journal cards .. and the album cover is gorgeous ! Love this edition!!

Janet Meyerhoffer - January 7, 2013 - 8:47 pm

Wonderful……so beautiful!

Dolly - January 7, 2013 - 9:15 pm

Oh.My.Heck…I want to wear this!!! If I sewed the pieces together and wear them so the whole world can see how beautiful they are! Big CONGRATS Kerri, way to go!

Denise - January 7, 2013 - 10:23 pm

By far, this is my favorite of ALL the PL kits ever done! This one is fabulous! Well done, you!!

Jennifer - January 7, 2013 - 10:24 pm

This is going to be the kit I use for my 16 year old sons album. Very excited to see the deep colors. My project life albums are birthday to birthday so a spring release will work perfect!

Pheeebzzz - January 7, 2013 - 11:15 pm

I absolutely looooove cinnamon ! I love all the new kits but cinnamon (and rain) is in my top 2, that’s or sure. I love the colors, the patterns, pretty much everything and I can’t wait to get the chance to scrap with it, it will be perfect for my older teen boy, just his kind of colors but it’ll be great for our family album too. What a an amazig designing job !!

Cindy Sowell - January 7, 2013 - 11:56 pm

Kerri I LOOOOOVE your Cinnamon Project Life kit!!! It’s gorgeous, and I can hardly stand the wait until it’s available!! Lol!

Gypsy Chaos - January 8, 2013 - 1:49 am

I somehow missed that you designed the turquoise edition – which I’m using this year. I LOVE the cinnamon edition. Great job.

MichelleGB - January 8, 2013 - 3:28 am

Congratulations! Love, love, love this new kit!

Sue Alg - January 8, 2013 - 6:21 am

Love the cinnamon edition. I’ve been using Clementine and Torquise, but recently picked up digital journal cards in all the sets. Can’t wait until Cinnamon goes digital because I love the colors.

ana roat - January 8, 2013 - 6:54 am

Of all the choices, this is my total favorite. It is absoutely BEAUTIFUL! I’m glad I haven’t started my 2013 album yet. The colors are so rich and full of life. I like to foofoo my pages up a bit but I must admit Kerri, with this edition I wouldn’t need to do a thing.

So lovely..!

christi - January 8, 2013 - 6:56 am

I just love the Cinnamon kit! It’s classic and timeless. You’ve got me considering trying PL this year, now, Kerri!!

Tammy D - January 8, 2013 - 11:08 am

Fabulous, Kerri! I love the dark blue and grey + the neutrals. The designs are great. Can’t wait to see it in person! :)

janis m - January 8, 2013 - 12:24 pm

Hi Kerri!

Cinnamon is awesome, you did a fantastic job. Can’t wait to get my hands on it!!


heidig - January 8, 2013 - 2:48 pm

Cinnamon is mine for 2014 – love, love, love it!

Marilyn T - January 8, 2013 - 7:31 pm

Love, love, LOVE the colors…too bad I’m not into PL. Maybe one day you’ll make traditional scrapping goodies with that palette! Congrats on a job well done!

Ann - January 9, 2013 - 2:43 pm

I love this kit, my favorite so far. Are the 4×6 title cards double sided too for vertical use

Karen S. - January 10, 2013 - 12:29 pm

I love your cinnamon set!! Just beautiful! Your designs are so classy – can’t wait to use them!

Graphic Design Bradford - January 11, 2013 - 1:33 am

The designs and colours look so beautiful. They all look fabulous and all time favourite.

Natalie - January 11, 2013 - 5:43 am

Oh my! This has got my name written all over it! I NEED IT NOW! :)

new products Q+A « Becky's Blog - January 11, 2013 - 6:00 am

[...] Check out more of the Cinnamon Edition on Kerri’s blog. [...]

Susan - January 11, 2013 - 6:08 pm

My all-time favorite design for Project Life (and even before Becky called it “Project Life”) has been the Turquoise edition… until now! The Cinnamon edition has now tied for my favorite edition. You have done a truly remarkable job in designing both of these. I don’t care for really bright colors or anything that’s overly feminine. I like graphic, outdoorsy, and/or classic designs and these are perfect. Thank you!!!

Cindy - January 13, 2013 - 3:21 am

Totally loving this kit!! I think I may need to buy it for 2014! Loving the warm colours – just beautiful.

Cheryl - January 13, 2013 - 11:00 pm

This is it! The one for me. Love the name, love the colors, love the design, love cinnamon…yum!

Erika Hayes - January 14, 2013 - 5:01 pm

Just stunning.. I love this line you have done an outstanding job.. . it is warm inviting and a literal feast for the eyes..

Suzanne B - January 15, 2013 - 12:24 pm

wow, you did not tell me you were making a kit especially for ME. I’m so flattered! LOVE IT!! ;)

Jennifer R. - February 11, 2013 - 8:05 pm

Can’t wait to get my hands on the digi version of this edition. Any word yet when it will become available? Can’t wait. It’s my favorite of all the PL editions. Great job, Kerri.

Brenda - April 8, 2013 - 1:55 pm

Woohoo!!!’ Digital version of Cinnamon edition now available at

Jennifer - September 15, 2013 - 10:46 am

I am getting this core kit this week. I cannot wait! I like to mix the kits depending on the pages I’m working on. The rooster card will be perfect for when I got my chickens. Most of the rest will be perfect for my horse album! Love it!

Project Life 2014 | - February 12, 2014 - 11:32 am

[…] Weihnachten gab es dann Ordner, Chore Kit und Divider aus der Cinnamon Edition von Kerri Bradford… Außerdem dann noch ein Päckchen mit Jornaling Cards, ein Mini-Kit mit Karten, die gut zu […]

i can see clearly now

Do you all find this weird? So, I know I’ve mentioned my eye sight issues that I’ve had the past few short months. Finally went to the eye doctor yesterday and not only did the astigmatism go away, but my eye sight got better–as in one eye went from 4.0 to a 3.5 and the other eye went from 5.75 to 5.

Um . . . what???

Has anyone ever had that happen??? I just find that very strange, especially to that significant of a change. And he said that it’s not usual for an astigmatism to go away, but it can happen. Weird!

And I am 46, so the closeup reading is getting a little worse, but it actually got better with the properly prescripted contacts, but I also learned another ‘duh’ thing.

I keep my computer screen fairly far back and with the eye issues I was having, it was getting hard to read. Tried my daughters’ 1.0 reading glasses and that totally didn’t work.

Well duh, as he explained, reading glasses are meant to be used at a distance to where you would normally hold a book. Duh! So I’m suppose to bring the monitor closer and use reading glasses if that’s what I’ll need to do eventually. My husband and I were both banging the heel of our hands to our head. Duh. lol

I’m just curious if any of you have encountered this whole vision getting better thing. I wouldn’t mind if it kept going so I could have perfect eye sight, but I’m not holding my breath. ;)

Audrey - January 4, 2013 - 11:13 am

My eyesight has gotten better that dramatically within one year as well! My astigmatism didn’t really change much but my prescription changed dramatically. I’m 31 and it happened about a year or two ago. The doctor was really surprised but did say that it can happen. I was really surprised and very pleased to have glasses that helped eliminate my headaches. It will be interesting to see what my next checkup holds. I don’t have the same problems I had with headaches, etc. that I had last time I went in though, so I doubt it will be as dramatic a change either way.

So, you aren’t alone! However, I’ve never met anyone else who has had that happen, so we may be few in number :)

Nonni - January 4, 2013 - 11:36 am

I too had a vision improvement 6 months ago! I am 65 and was really quite delighted when the eye doc told me my vision had improved and I no longer need glasses for distance or astigmatism, just reading glasses. i am a Type 2 diabetic and I thought my vision would . Praise God for my healing I’ll take it.

Lisa M Hjulberg - January 4, 2013 - 1:43 pm

My vision has improved with age, too! I, like you, was shocked when my eye doctor told me. I thought my glasses were blurry because I needed stronger ones, not weaker ones. Now I hardly ever wear my glasses unless I’m watching TV or driving. But I do have to wear readers when I’m doing close work, like coloring stamped images. I did have “computer” glasses for awhile, which worked great! They were specially prescribed to work for the distance to the computer screen. Loved them! Maybe you can get some of those so you don’t have to move your computer screen closer?

Brenda - January 4, 2013 - 4:08 pm

I have had an astigmatism since I was little and my eyesight just keeps getting a bit worse every year but now I have hope that maybe I’ll be as lucky as you! (I’m 48 almost 49 so there’s still hope! lol) Glad you got good news and Target carries some really cute zebra 1.0 reading glasses when you get there! :)

Cass - January 4, 2013 - 4:21 pm

My daughter has one eye getting better and the other getting worse.
My Aunt was always nearsighted and as she got older her vision got better and doesn’t need glasses anymore.
I don’t have their luck- I noticed a huge change in my eyesight over the past year. I always had 20/20 vision and now I’m nearsighted in one eye and farsighted in te other and an astigmatism in both. My new glasses come next week and I can’t wait because they’re really cute!

Ruth G - January 4, 2013 - 8:50 pm

Kerri, I had the same “wow, my vision’s actually better?” thing happen to me a couple of years ago (maybe around 42?) and then it didn’t seem to improve very much since then. At 45, my struggle is with “do I get bifocals or just take off my glasses/look under them to read anything closer than 10″ away?”
Here’s to a year of no vision issues!

Carolyn Lontin - January 4, 2013 - 9:29 pm

I needed my first glasses at 22 & each year both eyes were worse at my check ups then at 27 when I was pregnant I couldn’t wear my contacts so after my son was born I had a check up & both eyes improved to near perfect & they haven’t changed in 12 years! Love it!

Deneen - January 4, 2013 - 10:57 pm

When I was young I needed glasses for reading then as I got a little older I didn’t need glasses at all. Another few years went by and I ended up needing glasses for distance and a couple of years ago my eyes went crazy and now I need glasses for both distance and reading. I have tried bi-focals but they make me dizzy so it’s crazy that I have to have two pair. One for driving or seeing far and the other’s when I need to read. I’m 48 so I am holding out hope that they will get better because it can happen LOL :)

Kerri - January 5, 2013 - 4:52 pm

Okay, so this is just all crazy! I had NO IDEA that vision could get better! I just thought it was always downhill. Well, here’s hoping that I can keep on getting better vision and just have to do reading glasses. I doubt it would happen, but a girl can hope. :)

LinhC - January 10, 2013 - 8:00 am

I’ve always had bad eyesight. It’s like 7.0 and 7.5. I’m so blind without corrective lenses. However, last year, my astigmatism went away. Now, I getting to the point where I’ll have to wear reading glasses. Yuck!

happy new year!

A brand new year.

A brand new outlook.

A new year always brings hope of good things to come.

It’s promising.

It’s exciting.

Why do you think that is?

It just seems like it’s a flip of the calendar.
But you can’t help be excited about new things to come–what the new year will bring.

I think that’s what’s so fun about doing Ali Edwards’ One Little Word.

Last year my word was grow.

I had no idea at the time just how that would become so significant to me.

In my little business world? grow.grow.grow.
Growth in learning and teaching and meeting new about-the-world friends and all that good stuff.

Personally? Was I a better person and mother?
Eh. I’d say status quo.

Which is what brings me to my One Little Word today.

In typical KB fashion, I’ve got my own word.
Two words that I feel really strongly about–I couldn’t just choose one word. 
I have to focus on both.

So I made it one word.

And here it is . . .

I need to find balance in my life.

I need to not go through periods of totally consumableness (yeah, it’s a word) when working on certain projects for work. When I do that, my home life gets seriously off balance. Not to mention I have days of not showering until late in the day causing what I call, ‘ugly day.’ Creating classes or working on a graphic design job have a tendency to produce consumableness.

That’s why I desperately need to focus on balance.

And then there’s the document side of my word.

Something I am feeling very passionate about and–as you can tell–I am focusing whole heartedly on it this year with my class.

So obviously I was in quite a dilemma when having to choose just one word.
And to stay within the scope of one little word? I made my own.

Because I can.

It’s just what I do. :)

Here’s wishing you all a Happy New Year and that your brand new year brings you everything you hope for!


Melanie A. - January 1, 2013 - 3:10 pm

Happy New Year Kerri! I wish you great success with balancement! and many blessings for the new year.

Tammy - January 1, 2013 - 5:42 pm

I am a good bit older than you I would say and I have yet to figure this one out so when you do, PLEASE let me know. LOL. Love u bunches honey. So glad I found you. Thank you for everything you do and I pray you and your family have a wonderful Blessed New Year.

Val C - January 2, 2013 - 3:01 am

And a very Happy New Balancement Year to you too Kerri!! I should be doing dishes but I am working on your This & that Summertime for my BFFs so I know what you mean…

ana roat - January 2, 2013 - 7:22 am

Balancement…I like that. My word is STOP. No idea what this will hold for the new year but I am excited about seeing the end results. I think there’s more to it than the usual stop complaining, stop sitting on your bum all day, stop procrastinating, stop crying…I think it’s more along the lines of STOP, be still and know that I am GOD!

Balancement…the time between stabilizers and riding free on a brand new bike!

Have a wonderful day Kerri!


Carol - January 3, 2013 - 6:27 pm

Love your word Kerri.

a little video

So, I made this video for the first installment of The History Project. But the more I thought about it, the more I thought I should share it with everyone. I thought perhaps it might give some insight or encouragement for those of you sitting on the fence about this class.

In other words, it’s a little sneak peek into the class. :)

(FYI: I’m having problems emailing, so all the class details will be coming soon. I apologize for the wait.)

ruth tacoma - December 31, 2012 - 12:00 pm

You got me! :) Can’t wait to start.

Joyce - December 31, 2012 - 5:02 pm

I like to talk with my hands too…:)Love your enthusiasm!

Heather - December 31, 2012 - 6:28 pm

I’m in. Just signed up!

ana roat - January 1, 2013 - 8:10 am

Happy New Year Kerri! Thank you for all the wonderful inspiration you provided throughout the last year. Wishing you and your family all the best in 2013 and may it be a banner year all the way around!

ana in sunny Tracy California

the end of the year is almost here!

I can’t believe that we are just three days away from a brand new year. I kind of get giddy at thinking about starting a new year. New resolutions. New plans. New ideas.

Everything is new.

I’m excited for 2013 . . . not that I want it to go fast or anything. Time flies fast enough as it is. But there’s some fun things already that I’m personally looking forward too. My brand new History Project class starts Monday. New Silhouette classes are surely a must. I’m going to CHA for a day in a couple weeks. My husband and I celebrate 25 years of marriage in February. We’re going to NYC this spring to see Jordan sing in Carnegie Hall. Jordan graduates in May.  Well, by golly, there seems to be half the year already. ;)

Guess there’s not a whole lot I can do about time flying . . . it’s going to do it regardless of whether I want it to or not.

This past year my ‘one little word’ was grow. That was such an appropriate word for me. I didn’t even know at the time just how much that applied to my life and my work at the time.

I have a great word for the new year–in typical KB fashion. I’ll be sharing that on January 1.  :)

But there are a few goodies that you may want to take advantage of before this year ends!

If you haven’t heard about this yet, all the details are HERE.

You can save $5 on signing up before January 1. Class officially starts on Monday (Dec 31), but you can join in at any time. It’s regularly priced at $52 (a dollar a week).

And if you missed the sneak peek at the first lesson on Facebook yesterday?
Here it is, just in case. :)

If you got yourself a brand new Cameo/Portrait or maybe you’ve been wanting to get the most out of your little baby, but just haven’t done it yet?, Now is a great time to get classes on!

If you’ve never taken any classes, I might recommend taking Silhouette 1+2 (top 2) for only $39.20 for both. You’re saving $5 with the bundle and right now--through the end of the year–classes are 20% off (=39.20). Hello!

And that Just Add Color class? It’s a pretty awesome little class (if I do say so myself). You learn a lot about using color and the Silhouette color tools, so it’s pretty nifty.

You can see all the classes–and more–at HERE.

Well, that about sums it up for me today. :)

Merry Christmas to all….

Well, it’s Christmas Eve day in a good chunk of the world today.

And something that seems somewhat of a rarity ’round these parts at Christmas time has taken a turn for the good today . . . that would be SNOW! Big ol’ white fluffy flakes of wintery goodness.

Seems like we haven’t had much of it on Christmas and today it’s just a-dumpin’!

Been out driving in it too and it’s been absolutely glorious!

Kept saying to my hubby, ”I’m so happy!”

I’m tellin’ ya, it’s been rare to get a snow storm on Christmas . . . the one day your really want it.

So now I leave you to enjoy your holidays with this page from Nichol. With Santa coming tonight and all, I thought it a very fitting page to share on this Christmas Eve day.

[ ShapesLetters To Santa (mailbox & title) / Star Background (12×12) / PenguinA Dog’s Life (fire hydrant) / This & That: Winter (sled, stocking hat, envelope) / December Addtions: The Extras (Santa envelope) / This & That: Christmas (Santa hat, stack of gifts) / Christmas Countdown (bird) / Here Comes Santa Claus (hanging star) / Snapshots #1 (photo strip)

Oh my gosh! How stinkin’ cute is this???
Eye candy, I tell ya! Eye candy!

I wanna know where this girl’s mind goes at night.
She must have visions of storybooks dancing in her heads or somethin’.

Then penguins and the hats are killin’ me!

 Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I thought it would be fun to cut multiple penguins (one to represent each of my kids) and create a die cut scene of the penguins taking their letters to Santa to the mailbox! I included the awesome new star background to add interest to my page. The envelope pocket was perfect for including my children’s letters to santa. I’m able to “hide” them but still access them at some point. It will be fun to look back at these someday!

I’ll be checking back in with you later in the week.

I hope you all have a Merry Christmas,
Happy Hanukkah and all that good stuff!


Liz - December 24, 2012 - 9:35 am

just wanted to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

{dawn} - December 24, 2012 - 9:47 am

Always a joy to see what Nichol comes up with! She uses shapes I did not realize I even had!

Sounds like you are getting one of those “It’s a Wonderful Life” kind of snows! Love when we have those heavy snow falls…just doesn’t happen that often around here. We MIGHT have an inch of snow by Christmas morning – at least it will be white!

Merry Christmas to you, Kerri! I have really enjoyed these 12 days of Christmas with you. Thanks for all the time you put into the posts and freebies! Have a wonderful Christmas with your family!!

Brenda - December 24, 2012 - 10:41 am

Tammy Joyce - December 24, 2012 - 11:19 am

This layout is truly spectacular. I love the penguin’s. They still the show. You done and awesome job. Thanks for sharing your talent with us less fortunate. Merry Christmas.

Pam - December 24, 2012 - 11:27 am

Fabulous layout! Nichol is the absolute best. When she uses your products, the projects are beyond spectacular. Merry Christmas, Kerry!

Amazing! Thanks for filling my world with wonder and delight, Kerri and Nichol and Laura and Sheri and Robyn!! Merry Christmas to you and a very happy 2013!

12 Days of Christmas: Day 12

This is it folks. The very last day. I have to say, this has been one of the most fun times I’ve had here at KBS. Our own little two-week long Christmas party–great company, great conversation, all we needed was a little eggnog.

Thank you all so much for coming ’round these parts and making this Christmas season very merry+bright!

And now, I leave you with one last freebie. It just didn’t seem appropriate to not have one Christmas tree in the mix. So that’s what is up for grabs today and tomorrow.

I kind-a liked the long and skinny version. I even messed with stretching it taller (but not too far) and it looked pretty fun. It’d be awesome going up the side of your page!


To download it for free until Monday morning, click HERE.


This is no longer available as a freebie, but you can purchase it in the store.

And now.

What should we put on sale for today?

How’s about this one . . . it’s always been one of my faves.

man . . . as I’m writing this I keep feeling like i’m saying goodbye to all my  company at the end of the party.

And now, the last big fun thing for our little party.

If you are a fan of my Facebook page, you already know this baby is up!

A little somethin’ somethin’ for all your Project Life crafts perhaps?

I am so excited about this kit! Love the frames. You can put them over a title card or a photo . . . or even turn them vertically and use them if your photo pockets are obligin’. Lots of fun extra words to mix and match and just have a grand ol’ time!

Yeah . . . . some fun to be had there!

To check it out in the store, click the image above or click HERE.

Well, I guess that about wraps it up folks!
(And no, I did not mean that to be a pun in any way.)

It really has been such a fun past couple weeks!

Now we are all going to focus on our families over the next few days, get stuffed, and get stuffed some more. You know me, I’m all about the food. Of course, I do have one other page to share on Monday from Miss Nichol, so you’ll want to be sure to check in on that when ya gotta a couple minutes between parties, Santa visits, and dreaming of sugarplums dancing in your heads.

Oh and don’t forget, this class brand new class that’s available here on my site!

If this is the first time you’re hearing about it, you’ll want to check out all the details HERE. Additionally, it’s on sale until class starts, which is December 31. So maybe when you can breathe after the 25th, check it out. It’s going to be a fantastic heirloom for you. Truly. I’m very excited about it!
