I’ve been in this industry for many, many years. It all started in 1999 when I won the very first Creating Keepsakes’ Hall of Fame contest. (Please, don’t go look for the pages. ;) ) Soon after that I became a part of the Provo Craft ‘Dream Team’, as it was called. It was the first time I’d ever been a part of a group that connected all over the world–via dial-up modem. To which, I didn’t even have one at the time and would go over to my sister’s house and use hers.

We’ve come a long way baby!

We live in a grand world now, don’t we? How lucky are we to be able to connect with people all over the world? Friends, family, you name it. Skype. Hello? Did you ever think we’d have personal video conversations on a computer, much less a hand-held computer?

Now, for me, when I say lucky, it has taken on more of a meaning–evolved over time, if you will–and I think it includes meaning blessed. And I have been so lucky–blessed–to have made such great connections over our little world with people whom I’ve never met.

A few weeks ago, the lovely folks at Paperclipping Round Table invited me to have a conversation amongst friends. Five different people from all over, sitting around, having lovely chat about diecutting. Again, grand world we live in. And when I found out who I was going to be chatting with, I was so excited! Not only did I get to visit with Wilna Furstenburg–who is absolutely delightful, by the way, but I got to chat with a long-time KBS regular, Caroline Davis, who’s wit and charm would lighten up my world  with her comments when she visited my neck of the woods. And when I say wit, there were many-a times when I would literally laugh out loud at this girl.

And last year she became a member of Silhouette’s design team. Way to go Caroline!

So I thought it would be fun to invite Caroline to play at our house. And when she made her page, she reminded me that she was the one that asked for a ‘wonky’ honeycomb design. So you can all thank her for that (found in Background Basics).

Here it is in action:

caroline davis december 13

[ Designs | Background Basics (honeycomb) / Monthlies (december) ]


Such a whimsical use of the honeycomb! Love those splashes of color randomly placed. So much fun, Miss Caroline!


Here’s what Caroline said:

Hey Kerri!  Do you remember a million years ago I asked for this wonky honeycomb shape?  I was so excited that you made it!  I still LOVE it!  So much fun to play with and a great way to add random splashes of color.  I don’t do Project Life, but I take tons of Instagram shots, and I’ve decided that I want to have a way to showcase some of my favorite shots every month.  My daughter’s birthday is in December, and her favorite color is orange.  Christmas is documented elsewhere, so this has some red and green, but also snowflakes and hearts and orange.  Also, it’s hard to see in the photo, but the snow plow says “Sno Way” – which is why that photo is labeled funny…it reminds me or Wayne and Garth of Wayne’s World.


Thanks so much for sharing your talent here with us today Caroline! I’ve been lucky to have you be a part of my KBS world for a long time. :)

And one more thing. For those who don’t follow me on Facebook–or use Facebook, I shared this card that I made for Jordan for St. Patrick’s Day using the Thank My Lucky Stars kit. Sent it with a box of Cliffs of Moher Bars. She didn’t want junk food, so I had to make it Irish somehow. ;)

Okay, today we our so very lucky to have Laura Vegas in the KBS house with her page. I love…love…seeing the brush script come to life here. Check it out:

KBS_Laura_GottaLoveThisKBS_Laura_GottaLoveThis_detail1KBS_Laura_GottaLoveThis_detail4


[ DesignsClick (‘this look’, negatives) / Something To Say (‘gotta love this’) / Heart Backgrounds / Need Directions? (arrow) ]


Ooooh, did you see the stitching on the negative strip? LOVE!

Here’s what Laura has to say:

I don’t do really large titles very often. But Kerri’s new hand-painted brush script words just call out to be used big and bold, don’t they? I cut my title from brown cardstock, as well as a beige tone-on-tone dotted patterned paper, and then layered them together. To go with the “love” theme, I cut a heart background from white cardstock, layering it directly onto another piece of white cardstock, for a subtle look. I wanted to include several smaller photos and the negative strip worked perfectly to hold three photos that are approximately 3×4″ in size. Kerri’s shapes are also great for using directly on your photos. I used the PNG file for “this look”, from Kerri’s Click kit, and added it onto my photo before printing.

 

We are all so lucky to have you share your talent with us Miss Laura! You are amazing!

    Hey Kerri! Thanks for the freebie. So I was thinking the other day how cute your Jingle all the way frame was with the Jiggle bells. Well I want to make one for every holiday. For example you could use gold coins and do something with a rainbow for ST Patricks, could do some bunny tails, plastic eggs or flowers for easter/spring, Glitter or confetti stars for 4th of July etc. So many fun things to do in life not enough time :)

I love this time of year.

Spring is on its way.

You wait every day for more and more green to appear in the grass and in the trees. I even have new iris shoots coming up. Love seeing any and every sign of green.

green.

It’s a refreshing color, isn’t it? All those many shades are just ever-so lovely. It makes me think of Ireland too. I bought my daughter a t-shirt  when we were there several years ago that said ‘Ireland. 40 Shades of Green.’ And it had 40 different colored shamrocks laid out in a grid. And for those of you from Ireland or have been to Ireland can completely resonate with that statement.

I loved that shirt.

I love Ireland.

So is it any wonder why I start thinking about it around this time of year. Must have something to do with March 17. St. Patricks’s Day. The luck of the Irish and all.

But ’round these parts, you don’t have to be Irish to be lucky. ‘Round these parts, we are celebrating a very long weekend–through Monday, St. Patrick’s Day, with just a wee bit of a sale.

lucky-seventeen
And in case you were wondering, yes, that does include classes too. :)

But that’s not all my fine friends.

We are so lucky to have such an amazing creative team here in the land of KBS. Lucky to see their amazing talent every month. And I thought it only fitting that we celebrate our Lucky 17 sale with some fabulous work from these wonderful ladies.

So let’s take a look at what Layle has to share!

Layle Koncar - Week 8Layle Koncar - Week 8 - leftLayle Koncar - Week 8 - rightLayle Koncar - Week 8 - close up1Layle Koncar - Week 8 - close up2Layle Koncar - Week 8 - close up3

[ Designs | You Got This / Life Additions #2 (observations) / December Additions: The Dailies (sunday) / Sliders ]

So many goodies! And I love the idea of adhering an element (observations) to a piece of acetate! I’m thinking to myself, ‘Duh! Why didn’t I think of that???

brilliant.

Here’s what Layle has to say:

Kerri’s ‘You Got This’ printable was the inspiration for my Week 8 Pocket Page spread.  After 13 years, we’re remodeling our house – new carpet, new paint, tile, refinishing the hardwood floors, etc.  If you’ve ever been through a remodel, the term ‘you got this’ is so appropriate; living with the chaos for weeks on end is tough, but it will be so worth it when it’s done!!  I cut the ‘observations’ word, adhered to a clear piece of 3×4 acetate and then inserted in the pocket so it appears as if it’s floating in the pocket.  I used the slider cut file as a frame for the paint samples we’d painted on the wall to test the colors and then added a clear sticker to the frame.  Lastly I cut the word Sunday and adhered to one of the photos of furniture piled high in one of the rooms as we were ready for paint to start on Monday.


Lucky to have you here Layle….we all love you and you’re amazing work!


Now be sure to check in every day because you never know how lucky you may be. :)

You’re having a party.

You’re making a cupcakes.

You want some festive picks to top that lovely mound of tasty confection. Picks that come in your special color scheme.

And you want a personalized sentiment too.

We never want much, do we.

Well, I’ve got something that can help you with your wants.
A brand new DIY Banner kit!

 

diy-banners


What’s fun about this kit is that you choose a background and a design, color them, align, and make yourself a sweet little print+cut! Everything is set up as a ‘cuttable’ image, so it’s easy to add whatever color you need. Everything fits perfectly together and I love that.

When you open the DXF file (using Standard Studio), it’ll look like this:

banners-diy-open


I would recommend selecting all the little pieces of each design–including the titles–and turn each one into a Compound Path (right click). Turn off the cutlines as well too. Then, resave it and add that to your library. That way you only need to do it once and it’s ready for you the next time you need it.

Simply copy however many pieces you need, alter your colors, and make yourself a print+cut like this.

banners-diy-color


Then you can just wrap them around a little toothpick and voila! Your own little picks! Just how you want them! And you don’t have to use these for cupcakes…you could totally print out a whole bunch of these to keep on hand for tons of scrapbook pages and cards! Tons of uses!

 

banners-diy-picks


Now, I chose to just print these on plain ol’ printer paper. I could have chosen to do it on a Premium Presentation Paper (cardstock) and the colors would have been a little more vibrant (mainly red+orange), but since I was doing several sheets, I thought that they looked fine enough as they were. I’d also contemplated using Silhouette Sticker paper, but decided I needed to keep that for myself. ;)

You could make them two-tone, add a child’s name, a birth date on one side, whatever floats your boat.

It’s all up to you.

Enjoy!

banners-diy-cupcake

  • Su - March 11, 2014 - 3:40 pm

    Kerri, this is SO my thing! One quick question: when you cut printer paper what cut settings do you use? I invariably wreck my cuts on anything thinner than 65 lb card stock. Thanks!ReplyCancel

I’m just a sucker for photo fun. Usually it’s more so on my computer, but I do dabble in iPhone fine art.

A few days ago Zach got himself a new smartphone. Granted, his other one was almost two years old, but it wasn’t the ‘most recent’ release of the line when we purchased it at the time. I mean, c’mon, the ‘most recent’ changes like every two months.

But he got a nice new phone with a great screen and introduced me to the VSCOcam app (or website+video) that he was so excited to now have access to. This came out last May, I believe. Now, I’m not a big filter girl, but man, they just have a way of pulling you in! In general, I like the look of filters, but wind up going with the natural enhanced shots most of the time.

The app itself is free, but you can buy a pack of a few filters that you want for .99, give or take. Then they had a bundle of 38 for 5.99 vs. getting the 3 or 4 for .99. And when they make it look like this?

vsco-library


Yeah.

Bought the 5.99 set–as indicated by the ‘In Bundle’ sign.

I’m not a big app buyer in general, so it didn’t seem like much of a big deal to just have a little fun.

Like I say, I can get sucked into this stuff on a whim. That being said, my most favorite app ever is still, and will probably always be, PicTapGo. Love that thing and use it all the time.

But this app is incredibly powerful! I love choices….variety….and this baby has a ton! Even from the Library view after importing the photos that you want to work on, you have three viewing choices. (And these are screen shots on my iPhone, so they aren’t the sharpest of photos. :) )

vsco-library

So the first thing you do is import your photo from your Camera Roll (or take your own photo) and then pick a filter. I like it because the filter indicator pops up on your screen momentarily.

vsco-open-and-pick

If you notice in the middle photo, once you’ve picked your filter, it has a little slider on it. If you push on it again, you’ll get a slider for the intensity of the filter.

Again with the choices. love.

But that’s just the beginning. In the right photo you’ll see the various options for altering your photo–each one with its own slider. They include: Exposure, Temperature, Contrast,  Rotate (love this), Crop, Fade, Vignette, Tint, Saturation, Shadows, Highlights, Sharpen, Grain, Highlight Tint, Shadow Tint, and Skin Tone (a free filter add on).

vsco-vignette

And what I really love about this app is that the changes are always there for you to modify again if you want. So if I exit this and decide I no longer want the vignette and I want to Sharpen and Rotate it…done. If I rotated it too far. I can fix it. And when I say rotate, I mean rotate. Most apps only let you rotate in 90 degree increments. This one has a slider (of course) that you click and drag and it will rotate it for you. LOVE!

vsco-rotate3


So on this last Yankees Stadium photo, I took the Exposure to -1, Temperature -2, Contrast +1, Saturation -1, and then of course added a Vignette and Rotated. it.

And that’s just touching the surface of it all. Here’s some things I did with a photo of a little corner flower shop in NYC. We bought flowers for the kids and the music teacher and piano player here to give to them after singing in Carnegie Hall last year.

vsco-flowers1

(oops. typo. ignore it.)


And this is where it gets kind of cool. With Shadow/Highlight Tints, you can add a tint to the shadows or the highlights of the photo.

vsco-flowers-tint

It’s just subtle change, but fun. Here’s the final shot with a couple other edits.

flowers-final2


The possibilities with this app are endless. I think one could get a bit carried away. Which is probably why I usually shy away from filter apps and stick to make a photo shine in its original–but enhanced–state. I usually don’t have time to mess around. But it’s fun to have when you do want to play. Oh, and I also like being able to filter your library by Edited, Unedited, All or even Flagged ones. Pretty sweet.

And speaking of playing, here’s a before and after of the Santa Monica Pier. I was playing with this last night. :)

santa-monica2santa-monica-edited2


The one bad thing about using photo editing on my phone is the fact that my vision changes from time to time so I may have to get my glasses. Oh how I hate that. Taking out my contacts and holding it close is dreamy though. I can see it clearly that way.

Anywho. It’s a fun app to play with. :)

  • Katrina - March 6, 2014 - 6:46 pm

    Thanks for the info! I’ve wondered about that app, but I’ve never tried it. I may have to now!ReplyCancel

  • Stefani - March 9, 2014 - 2:18 pm

    I totally agree with you. VSCO Cam is a super fun app to play with. It’s pretty much all I use for my mobile photos.ReplyCancel

When I make a design, I may have some idea of how it’s going to be used. But I gotta say, my creative team surprises me time and time again.

Case in point.

The thought never occurred to me to use the cameras from the Click kit on a card. So when Nichol shared these little lovelies with me, I was absolutely delighted!

Love all the itty bitty details and how Nichol dressed up her cuts with stamps! And did you notice the subtle cut background behind the vellum? Yeah. Great idea! And the colors….divine…happy.

The question is, will I be lucky enough to be the recipient of one of these cards? ;)

 

Here’s what Nichol has to say:

I thought it would be fun to take the new camera cut files from Kerri’s Click Kit and create a couple of cards out of nothing but cardstock + cut files + a bit of stamping to give the cameras a unique dressed up look!

I cut the camera from some fresh, fun colors of cardstock and added subtle stamping in tone-on-tone colors with simple border stamps. I added hearts die cut from the Just My Type Kit and embellished them with tiny rhinestones and Glossy Accents. Foam adhesive behind some of the elements gives dimension.

I wanted to “frame up” my cameras and what better than a slide frame from the Sliders Kit and the instant frame from the This & That Family Kit! I felt like the background behind the camera needed a little somethin’ but I didn’t want it to overpower the cute cameras or greetings. I cut the diagonal background from the Life Additions Backgrounds from white cardstock, layered some vellum over the top and popped them behind the frames for a touch of texture and a tone-on-tone background.

I added a bit of stamping and embossing along with my die cut greetings for added interest.

    These are gorgeous cards! I was wondering what I could do with a camera on cards–and now I have ideas. Pinning this for a future card making frenzy! :)ReplyCancel

    Love it!! I’m going to use these as inspiration for my daughter’s birthday card – she loves taking photos. Thank you!ReplyCancel

This mix of ten hand-drawn brush script words will give you the perfect ‘something to say’ on any page!

It comes in the usual cut files as well as the usual black PNG file. Of course you can change the color of the PNG file to whatever color tickles your fancy or print it on a card for Project Life.

Lots of fun to be had! I decided to put it on this photo that Jordan just sent me from San Mateo, Florida today. It is beautiful, isn’t it? She loooooves it there.

    Love this Kerri, can see me using it quite a bit, loving the brush script look right now. . I bit the bullet and purchased the script class, can’t wait for my brushes and paint to arrive so I can make a start.ReplyCancel
