As promised this week, here is my mint+grey page. The week was a little more wonky than expected and I am now off with my girls to St. George to see a couple plays for the weekend, so  it’s the digital life for me today. :)

[ Shapes | More Background Basics (circle background) / Here Kitty Kitty (title+cat) ]


Well, I’m so excited to have some time with my girls before my one girl goes on her mission. Two Broadway-quality plays in a very scenic outdoor venue amongst the red rocks and shopping and good food? Weather should be ideal? Yeah. It’s gonna be a good weekend.

Hope you have a fabulous one too!

    I LOVE your page!! You know how to do digital (and everything else for that matter!) Funny we both focused on our cats ( : Sounds like an awesome weekend, have fun. I can’t wait for the next challenge. I have ideas in my head for some unique projects.ReplyCancel

  • {dawn} howells - September 27, 2013 - 8:51 am

    So beautiful, as always! Love what you did with your title! Makes me wish I had a cat!ReplyCancel

  • Ruth G - September 27, 2013 - 9:40 am

    Sweet LO! And enjoy your time with your girls! Sounds like some wonderful memories will be made!ReplyCancel

  • Trish - September 27, 2013 - 1:02 pm

    I know you will have a wonderful weekend with your girls, those times together are so sweet! I had my once a year manicure/pedicure with my daughter and I felt as if I was channeling you with my mint green fingernails and gray toenails color scheme! I did do a card layout, too. Thanks for your inspiration (in many ways!)ReplyCancel

  • Paula - September 27, 2013 - 2:11 pm

    Fabulous page, Kerri. I love cats & I love mint & grey so this ticks all the boxes for me in eye candy.

    Have a fantastic weekend with the girls, do some really girly stuff. I have my 4 weekly full body massage tomorrow afternoon to look forward to!ReplyCancel

  • Sandy Evans - September 27, 2013 - 2:26 pm

    I love your layout. Super super cute.ReplyCancel

Sometimes I just marvel at what we can do now in our own homes with paper crafting. I worked with Desiree Tanner at Provo Craft about fourteen years ago. I remember when they first came out with the lacy paper accents (Laser Layouts, if I remember right). It was an expensive process. And now we can do it ourselves? And let’s not forget title making! Who remembers printing a title in reverse on cardstock and using scissors an x-acto knives to cut the out…just for the look of something unique.

Now?

Digital craft cutters?

Ohhh, the ease of it all! I love it!

Here’s a little something from our darling Miss Laura using all those things that were so pain-stakingly and expensively done just a few years ago. Makes ya appreciate what we have now, right?

Loved this. :) 




[ Shapes | Storyboard #1 (photo template) / Background Basics (circle background) / Pack Your Bags (“Loved This”) / Life Additions #2 (file folders) ]

Here’s what Laura has to say:

I created a layout a few months ago that ended up being one of my favorite layouts in a long time. It wasn’t just the page design that I loved (which included one of Kerri’s Storyboard Templates and a few of her words pieced together for my title), but the photos and the meaning behind the story as well. I decided that since I loved it that much, I would use it as inspiration for this layout. The overall page design has the same look and feel (except the other layout is about football!), and I even used the exact same Storyboard Template to create my photo collage as I used on my original layout.

I keep trying to branch out and use different background cuts for my projects. After all, Kerri has so many great backgrounds to choose from in several of her kits. But I always seem to come back to that circle background. It’s a favorite of mine, and I’m pretty sure I use it more than any other background in my collection. I cut two of the tall file folders from the Life Additions #2 kit, and I had every intention of using those to hold my journaling. But I came across the chipboard jar piece and it just fit there to nicely, along with a little embellishment cluster. So I simply moved my journaling to the bottom of the page, which is where I had it on my original layout as well.
  • Ruth G - September 26, 2013 - 7:28 pm

    Wonderful! I love the column of elements with the outer edges being background and the colors and textures are just so fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing! Laura is one of my favorite designers because she always uses tons of photos and keeps her layouts easy to dissect and emulate!ReplyCancel

  • Sue FitzGerald - September 27, 2013 - 2:30 am

    Oh I remember the days of the old exacto knife (and it doesn’t seem that long ago), thought I was very clever. Gorgeous layout.ReplyCancel

  • Jana Eubank - September 27, 2013 - 8:49 am

    Such a gorgeous page! LOVE all the texture the cuts give! YUM! :)ReplyCancel

  • Paula - September 27, 2013 - 2:13 pm

    Love the title & all the colour.ReplyCancel



I have been so excited about launching this new series of tutorials! A couple times a month or so I will be sharing a quick little tip on how you can utilize your resources and maximize your art. I’m a big fan of maximizing one’s art. Huge fan. I love to see your goodies used in something other than the obvious way. So this is all about taking one item in your arsenal or from a KBS kit and mixing it with a completely different item and making something new.

I’d also thought about calling this 1+1=fabulous, but thought Mix+Match had a better ring to it. ;)

So for today’s tutorial, it’s all about Lines+Letters.

Take a look!


And on a completely unrelated note, apparently my hosting site was having issues and so there were some account access problems in addition to my site being down all together. It appears we are back up on the blog side, but not on the store/class/message board side of things.

Please be patient with me on this. I’ve already gotten an ulcer over it this morning with everything going on with it. :)

  • Judy Stiles - September 25, 2013 - 11:59 am

Can you even believe it!
There’s a brand new Silhouette class all on card making
that is now open for registration!

Class starts November 4,
just in time for you to get ready for the holidays.

I’m so excited to to teach you even more about using your Silhouette. To empower you to create and modify your own cardmaking to fit your needs? To put the skills of all that into your own two little hands? It tickles me pink! And not only that, the techniques you learn in this class can be applied to paper crafting in general, so your new-found skills aren’t just limited to card making.

Here’s just a little sample at one of the card+envelope combos that we’ll be making.


And in case you were wondering, that is a double-sided print+cut shape!

We are making ten card+envelope combinations,
so that means ten sets of video lessons plus the usual set of freebies!
It’s gonna be awesome!

This is an intermediate class, so you should have at least taken Oh The Places You Will Go or have equivalent knowledge. And you do not need to have the Designer Edition to take the class.

Oh! Oh! Oh! One more thing.
You can save $5 on the purchase price

until class starts on November 4!

So step right up and let’s get ready to add to your repertoire of skills!

  • Ruth G - September 23, 2013 - 9:43 am

    This looks like so much fun! I love that you made the print and cut envelopes! I still need to go through your other classes and get my printer to work with my Silhouette dedicated laptop so I think I will probably be taking this at a later time, although the $5 discount makes it very tempting to sign up right now even though I won’t be able to do much…
    Thanks so much for making it so hard to choose ;-)!ReplyCancel

  • Lisa (ThePurplePlace) - September 23, 2013 - 10:06 am

    Yippee! My wishes have come TRUE!! Thanks Kerri!!ReplyCancel

  • Paula - September 23, 2013 - 10:27 am

    I’m all signed up ready :)
    I’ve now taken 3 of your classes & I would recommend them to EVERYONE!!!! Seriously I have never learned so much, had such fun & felt so utterly confident in such a short period of time.

    I do have printing issues which I have posted a question about in the forum “Just Add Color”.

    I bought “Design Secrets” first, then half way through decided I needed the others first, so I have now worked my way through “Getting to Know You”, “Oh The Places We’ll Go” and am almost at the end of “Just Add Color”. I can go back to “Design Secrets” feeling better equipped to deal with the class and can’t wait to learn more about cards. I LOVE my silhouette now you have taught me to use it ♥♥♥ReplyCancel

  • Sandy Evans - September 23, 2013 - 12:03 pm

    I signed up…. Kerrie is totally awesome. I still have a few classes I haven’t done . But know Kerri will be there if I need help when I get time to do them.. Always so excited for her classes. I have them all, she is an awesome teacher…ReplyCancel

  • Katie Jones - September 24, 2013 - 6:36 am

    Super excited! Just signed up!!!ReplyCancel

I just watched this video and found it utterly fascinating. The sheer talent and work that went into the making of all this.

Plus, it was for John Mayer?

All the more better.

Yes, I’m a fan. :)

And I love how he shares how he knows what he wants for his album cover, but just can’t quite see anything that can be a frame of reference…but he’ll know it when he sees it. I’m soooo like that! I thought I was the only picky one there. You have a vision for something (regardless of what it is) and if you can’t see what you want, it’s so aggravating.

I am completely wowed by this whole process. The artist is freaking amazing!

It is lengthy (18+ min), so sit back with your favorite beverage, just be amazed and enjoy.

    that was fantastic, but I can’t believe he doesn’t have a Silhouette to help him cut some of that white vinyl he was cutting by hand!! Oh it must take forever to make a piece. cheersReplyCancel

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

Mint is my all time favorite color and you throw in a little grey and I’m in heaven. I had to play along with Kerri’s mint inspiration this week and scrapped some older photos of my youngest when he was just six months old. The best thing about mint + grey, IMO? It works with anything and everything. I showcased baby photos with a baby-esque layout but this color scheme works for girls, boys, weddings, everyday life and so much more! 
 
The Cameo cut out the fabulous KBS title from some American Crafts POW Glitter Paper like butter! I’ve been wanting to use this title since Kerri designed it and this was just the perfect page for it.  I used some of Kerri’s other shapes in unconventional ways (since they came from kits completely un-related to babies!) however it was a good reminder to look at the individual shapes rather than the theme of the kit. I took the moon from a Halloween kit and the word “boy” from the dog kit.  It’s amazing what you can mix and match!

 

Thanks everyone who participated! It was just lovely to see what you made! I think we need to do this more often…and maybe next time I’ll do the little ‘link up’ thing.

And so the randomly drawn winner is . . . Rhodonda!
Congratulations girlie! I’ll email you with your little shopping spree!


Watch for my page next week.
And speaking of next week, there’s something super fun coming Monday!
Can’t wait!

  • Rhadonda - September 20, 2013 - 12:20 pm

    Sweetness! Thanks so much. I need to push myself more often and participate in more challenges to grow in my skills. Can’t go wrong with good product for sure ( : Great inspiration here!ReplyCancel

  • Andi Walsh - September 25, 2013 - 2:58 pm

    I loved this challenge and the big reveal of all the entries… such great inspiration. Please, do have more!ReplyCancel

Which would make the winner Becky! Congratulations Becky! You were the only one to guess Sun Valley, Idaho!  I will email you withe details of your little shopping spree.

Sun Valley is one of our favorite places to go. Dan loves to fish and I love to sit by the river, take photos, read a book…whatever tickles my fancy. We enjoy good food and beautiful scenery here.

This year we took the Scenic Byway and headed on over to the Stanley area. They don’t call them Scenic Byways for nothing! Holy cow! Take a look at these beautiful mountain ranges…including the Sawtooth Mountains which also look like the Tetons. (Pretty sneaky clue, eh? ;) )


While the weather was pretty cooperative, there was a thunderstorm that rolled in through as we were driving through the mountains. When we got to the top of the pass, we had this incredible view!

 


And this photo above would the Sawtooth Mountain range. Pretty amazing, right?


Dan also enjoyed doing some fly fishing in several places, including the famous Silver Creek.



And this was the one place that I actually pulled out my chair to relax. Taking a gander at A Beautiful Mess’ book whilst taking a gander at the beautiful scenery.


And then we can’t forget about the food. Glorious food! I think this was the most favorite thing that I ate…caprese bread. Divine.

 

I love exploring the art of doing nothing at all. It doesn’t happen often and I relish every moment when I can get it.

Sadly, there were some huge rainstorms going on for a couple weeks and it really messed up the fishing, so Dan didn’t catch anything. He had some nibbles and close encounters on Silver Creek, but the weather just really messed things up.

Still, we enjoyed our time. And I think we want to hit all the Scenic Byways in this country.

Love Sun Valley.


Tune in tomorrow for our Mint+Grey day! :)

  • Ruth G - September 19, 2013 - 10:07 am

    Way to go, Becky! Enjoy your little shopping spree! You definitely earned it!
    Thanks for sharing the fabulous pictures, Kerri! One of the things I love so much about scrapbooking and the communities that celebrates it is living my life vicariously through someone else! It’s like going to the movies, but without the sticky feet! Thanks for taking me along with you! I feel refreshed just seeing your pictures! I can almost smell the mountain air!ReplyCancel

  • Becky - September 19, 2013 - 3:13 pm

    Thank you! The sawtooth mountain area is one of my favorite places to camp and Sun Valley is beautiful! Two of the best places in Idaho!ReplyCancel

    What a beautiful trip- good for the soul! I visited Sum Valley years ago driving from Puyallup, WA ! It was winter and there was so much snow. Now I want to go in the fall! I love your pictures and that caprese bread-oh my! I want to make it before my basil is done for the year!ReplyCancel

First off, I just want to thank everyone for the birthday wishes! I had a very nice, relaxing and scenic day. Which brings me to today’s post.

We got one of these goin’ on . . .

Where in the world is Kerri Bradford
GIVEAWAY!

Hubby and I took a little trip away for our birthdays. We’d almost planned a trip for New England in the fall, but then chose wisely and decided we needed to tuck that money away for Jordan to go on her mission. So we went some place within driving distance of our home in Utah (but may or may not be in Utah). You may have seen this photo on Facebook the other day:


That would be clue #1.

And here is clue #2.


And clue #3 actually is a little ooh+aah moment with the iPhone.

How many of you know about the HDR feature on your camera?
Have you ever played with it?

I have before, but I turned it off because…well…I don’t remember why.

But I decided to turn it on for this trip.
Lots of lights and shadows and risking losing one for the other–
either too washed out or too dark.

But look what happens when you turn on the HDR feature.

I did not edit either of those photos.
They are straight out of my iPhone.
I took just one picture and the phone created both
a normal one and an HDR one at the same time.

I was amazed at just how much color the HDR creates!

If you’re not familiar with HDR, it stands for High Dynamic Range. And basically, the camera takes a photo at 2 stops below, right in the center and 2 stops above, puts it all together and assesses the best photo possible, taking into account anything that may have normally been too dark or too washed out.

The result is amazing!

Give it a try. You might just be wowed by what you take!


So, now that you have three clues, here’s the contest for ya!

Leave a comment with your guess, like this post on Facebook, 
and I’ll draw the closest winner on Thursday
and they will receive a $20 shopping spree!

  • Dolly - September 17, 2013 - 7:00 am

    You know I am in Canada and I have never been to UT so if I’m not even close…don’t laugh! LOL
    First I was going to say Capital Reef Utah and then I decided on
    Fifth Water Hot Springs in Diamond Fork Canyon.
    The more I look at places in Utah I could guess all day How about Odgen? it looks like the city in the last picture sort of.
    Okay…lost in Utah…

  • Laura K - September 17, 2013 - 1:18 pm

  • Lisa Haines - September 17, 2013 - 3:47 pm

    Since I have only been on the East Coast (a New England Gal) and out to Cali on twice, (both by plane)….I have never ever had the chance to be anywhere near Utah, but it sure looks pretty!

    However, my son and daughter in law made an amazing trip across country last year to their new home in San Diego (why I’ve been to Cali), and one of the places they loved was MOAB, so that’s my guess!

    I have never in my life seen a highway that long where you can see for such a distance…let alone be on any highway without lots of other cars…what a site!! I live in a tiny coastal town in Northeastern Massachusetts! Maybe some day I get to visit more of our amazing USA! When Bri and Meg took their trip they saw the country like most people never have the chance to do..they drove and saw so many awesome places on their wonderful three week trip!

    Hope you loved every minute…looks FUN!!ReplyCancel

I spent 30 minutes on the phone, I got my channel on, it was the only one not working and it worked on the other tv’s in the house! So I’m just out of luck and when I went to HSN.com many things were sold out. So thankful I got those overlays early. That’s it for my rant today!

    My Guess is Estes Park, Colorado near the National Park.ReplyCancel

  • Wendy Orme - September 17, 2013 - 8:57 pm

    I guess Jackson Hole, Wyoming.ReplyCancel

  • Gwen - September 17, 2013 - 9:15 pm

    I think you are in Jackson Hole Wyoming. Love it there!!ReplyCancel

  • Terri Cannell - September 17, 2013 - 11:19 pm

    My guess is you took 70 east toward the Garden of the Gods formation and stayed in Colorado. There are some cabins to stay in near rivers with good fishing too.ReplyCancel

    I hope you’re having fun, Kerri! I love this country! It’s amazing what you can see when you get in the car and drive! Just a few hours and you’re in a different world! Well, I’ve been to Jackson, WY, so that’s my guess (but probably not where you are/were because there wasn’t quite the length of main street that I remember as you have in your picture, but since I’ve been there, I’m sticking with it!)
    Thanks for sharing (especially the photo app)! I hope we get to hear all about your trip when you get back!ReplyCancel

    I’ll say Park city. :). And I just barely turned the HDR feature on. It does make a world of difference in my photos!ReplyCancel

    My guess would be Jackson Hole, WY. Once you make it through some desolate areas there’s a beautiful world waiting.
    Thanks for sharing your work with all of us!ReplyCancel

    Driving distance… hm… guessing… Grand Tetons. Looks gorgeous, wherever it actually is. :)ReplyCancel

  • Lynette - September 18, 2013 - 9:50 am

    Okay, I guess I’ll go with the Grand Tetons too. :) Hope you had fun. Looks like a fun trip! That street is so pretty. I love it.ReplyCancel

  • Cindy Brooks - September 18, 2013 - 3:48 pm

    I think you’re hiking along the Snake River in the Tetons, north of Jackson Hole…ReplyCancel

  • Dana Marie - September 18, 2013 - 5:28 pm

    That looks like Jackson Hole, WY to me, although I haven’t been there in a long time.ReplyCancel

  • ana roat - September 18, 2013 - 8:15 pm
