    Hi Kerrie!
    Hey, I have a question about the photo templates. Which do you recommend for the pocket page scrap booking? Can I open these in PSE and just ‘dump’ my photos in?
    I guess I need some ‘how to’s if they are available:)ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - April 4, 2015 - 10:21 am

      Hey Andi! I have some tutorials under the Tutorials link on my site that can help you. There are some templates that are designed with 4×6 or 5×7 in mind. The ‘Snapshots’ series fit that. That being said, you can really resize them all to use a layout that you’d like. Just know that it might alter the width or height to accommodate a change that doesn’t match the proportion in size. Also, make sure you do that before you put your photos in, so those won’t get warped. :)

      Hope that helps. :)ReplyCancel

I’m so excited to bring you the next round of stamps from Kerri Bradford Studio! This month I wanted to mix things up a little and create a sentiment style as well as a spring style. And then I soooo needed to start fulfilling my alphabet cravings.

Please note: Due to somebody taking some kind of extended vacation–and that person shall remain nameless (okay, it was me)–these are on PREORDER. Shipping should begin by end of next week. Additionally, I’m working on international ordering, so be patient with me on that.

So without further ado, here is the April stamp collection!

FOR YOU

stamps-foryou

BEAUTIFUL DAY

stamps-beautifulday


KRAMER

stamps-kramer

 ANNIE

stamps-annie

(Kramer is just over 1/4″ and Annie is just under 1/4″)


My favorite part about designing stamps is making it so they can work together. 
Here’s a little sampling on how you can combine them to make beautiful new designs.


Use the two tiny alphabets together to make creative titles.


april-ex1

 


Combine it with a couple of dotted stamps from Line By Line To
create another fun version.


april-ex2



Mix and match the conjunctions and little words
to get wonderful looks like these.


april-ex3




Combine words within the For You stamp set to create your own sentiment.


april-ex4




Combine the Beautiful Day icons and words like these…that I just adore.


april-ex6




Or again, mix and match stamp sets, including using the alphabets
and Line By Line arrows.


april-ex5



As you can see, the sky’s the limit. So many possibilities!

top-ten-tips-road-trips3
There are a lot of things you do or even learn while you’re on a two-week road trip. Of course, a lot of what I did or learned can be applied to trips in general. But I thought it would be nice to share some these things here for you today in hopes that it might help you some day. And please don’t worry, I was not standing that close to the trolley to take the photo. Zoom lenses are awesome like that. :)


01  |  GPS.

This is by far one of the most valuable tools we had–in both driving and walking…or even knowing what trolley stop you need. I seriously don’t know what we did before GPS. And I think that I said that probably a hundred times on our trip.

And I don’t have ‘unlimited data’ in the sense that I only have 1G free data because I just don’t use it much on a regular basis. I can go over the 1G, but it becomes slower (T-Mobile). I was worried and careful on our trip to not use up all the data. But we were on the road for two weeks and not only did I check Facebook, Instagram and information on the web, but I used the Maps app frequently–both walking and driving and including times of letting it talk to me, and I still only used 650M of data. Not bad. I would monitor my data usage just to make sure I wasn’t using too much within each leg of the trip and would try to hold off on looking at more time-consuming things until we had wi-fi, like at the hotel. Wanted to make sure it lasted through the entire two weeks. :)

We do have a GPS in our car, but we haven’t updated it since we bought it eight years ago. So needless to say, the phone is always more up-to-date. I also loved being able to see just how far it was from Point A to Point B. Believe it or not, there are many places where the road signs don’t tell you the miles to the major city you’re going to, only the smaller ones that come first. Also, it shows it in real time when there are slowdowns going on. That’s pretty sweet.


02  |  Go off the beaten path.

Whether you are driving or walking, take the path less traveled. I have said this before here on the blog and it is one of my favorite tips. We took many highways–more out of necessity in the south–and they were delightful. You get the small town feel and often a much more scenic route. Also, if you’re walking around, don’t hang out in the crowded areas. Take walks around scenic neighborhoods. Be sure to take in all that you see and look at the details.


03  |  Talk to others.

Don’t be afraid to talk to others–including tourists or locals–to find out if there’s something else cool to see. The ‘popular’ places are easy to find. Most hotels may direct you here or there for good food. And that’s cool. But if you want to go for the good stuff, ask the people that live there. Also, ask other tourists what’s been the favorite part of their trip.


04  |  Keep notes.

Keep a notebook handy to write down what you’ve done for the day or a thought that comes to mind about where you are or what you are experiencing. You will forget!


05  |  Know before you go, but be open to spontaneity.

This is kind of a bigger story. We’d planned to see St. Louis Cemetery #1 while in New Orleans. It’s near the French Quarter and so we walked from Jackson Square over to it. It was somewhat hot and humid for mid-March and when we got to the cemetery we were told that as of March 1 (just two weeks prior) you could only go into the cemetery with a tour guide due to increasing vandalism. Not only that, tickets were $26 per person! We were rather disappointed. So instead, we went to the visitor’s center across the street and caught the ‘hop on / hop off’ bus tour. We got to enjoy the city from the comfort of a seat and hear the history. During the tour we went down Magazine Street, which I hadn’t heard much about, but we thought it would be a fun place to go look at some shops later.

Later, while we were taking a trolley, I struck up a conversation with the mom of a family there on vacation. We talked about the cemetery thing and she mentioned she was going to Lafayette Cemetery, which was still free. She also helped us make sure which trolleys we should be catching. ;) Along our way back to the hotel, the trolley driver mentioned one of the stops was for a cemetery. What? I checked the GPS and low and behold, the Lafayette Cemetery happened to be just a few blocks away from the hotel we stayed at in the Garden District. I would have figured that out when I looked at the map later, but we were shocked that it was so close. It opened at 8 a.m. We were there shortly after. And we pretty much had the place to ourselves. It was shady, cool and amazing. Granted, we didn’t hear historic stories like we would have with a tour guide at a place where famous people are buried, but I enjoyed it just as much, if not more.

Additionally on this subject, it didn’t occur to us that the shops on Magazine Street would close at 5 or 6. That whole ‘know before you go’ would have been a good idea. However, our GPS had shown us that we could take the trolley a few blocks (after dinner), hop off and then we could walk to Magazine Street, which happened to be through a beautiful neighborhood. When we discovered that most of the shops had closed, we opted to take the trolley back to the hotel. But I don’t like going down the same road, so we walked along Magazine Street to go to another road that would take us up to a trolley stop. Because we made this spontaneous choice, we were introduced to District. It’s a cafe, diner, bar, donut shop, etc. Dan, knowing that I wanted something sweet after dinner, says, ‘They have donuts there.’ I was like, ‘I don’t want a donut.’ And the people sitting outside said, ‘Oh. They aren’t donuts. They are something completely different. I don’t know what you’d call them, but they have so much more in the than what you’d see in a donut.’

Okay then. I’m in. We went in and it did not disappoint.

Then, the roads we chose to walk back towards the trolley–and ultimately to look at the closed cemetery–were absolutely amazing. Beautiful homes. Gardens. The whole works. I just soaked it all in. That evening was the highlight of being in New Orleans for me.


06  |  Look.

Take the time to appreciate the beauty of where you are. So many people diss Kansas, but I found it to beautiful and could only imagine would it would be like if the farms were all abundant. It had flat lands in the west, but rolling hills in the middle and east sides. Beautiful sunrise in the flatlands. I also enjoyed looking down the little pathways between homes for gardens in both Savannah and New Orleans. Little secrets that most people may not pay attention to. I also loved all the staircases in Savannah–covered in moss or vines. Beautiful. And don’t even get me started on the trees.


07  |  Pay attention to time and time changes and plan accordingly.

This we weren’t so good at. I don’t know how we managed to hit some metropolitan areas right at rush hour for morning or night. Nashville and Atlanta. Ugh. Additionally, when plotting out the day to drive to Savannah from Montgomery, Alabama, I forgot about the time change. When you lose that valuable hour, it can make all the difference–especially if you hit some construction along the way.


08  |  Take photos from your car.

I took several photos from the car along the drive to remember the landscape. When you are driving everywhere, it all starts to blur together. The photos are meant more for me than anything. I don’t necessarily intend to use them, but in time, I may forget one state from the next, but the photos will help me remember which one was which. Also, be sure to have your camera handy. One of my favorite photos was of the sunrise after leaving Albuquerque, New Mexico. Stunning. And I took it using my dSLR out the front window while hubby was driving.


09  |  Take photos of menus + food.

I know this may sound so cliche or hipster or whatever you want to call it, but I actually do it to remember where + what I ate. I think Dan kind of makes fun of me for doing it, but when he asked what he ate or where we ate at because he couldn’t remember, I said, ‘See? Now you know why I take the photos.’ :)


10  |  Don’t be afraid to take photos.

Sometimes I feel shy about taking photos, particularly if I’m with others that aren’t photo-takers. I sometimes feel awkward. But then I tell my self, ‘Get over it!’ Who cares if people are looking at you? If you want that photo, by golly, go and take it. And always take extra, because sometimes the first one may not turn out.



  • Michelle Price - March 30, 2015 - 12:46 pm

    I ALWAYS take ‘extra’ photos – three or four. Usually horizontal AND vertical. Sometimes they don’t turn out, sometimes they are crooked or off center, and lots of times, the non-photo takers wish they had taken some so I share.ReplyCancel

  • Monica Jordan - March 30, 2015 - 3:57 pm

    Kelli Hi!!
    I love taking pictures when we are out and about and I love, love taking back roads to me it’s relaxing. Being from the south taking off the beaten path roads sometimes you can find the most amazing flea markets and off the road yard sales.ReplyCancel

  • Melanie A. - March 30, 2015 - 4:02 pm

    Yeah our traffic (Nashville) is horrific. This state plans for nothing. We have no real public transportation and nowhere to put one. We wait until it is beyond disaster to widen roads. Other than that we are a good place to visit LOL. Especially if you like history, civil war etc.

    My husband will actually remind me to take pictures of our food if we are on vacation and somewhere new :D

    You are so right about just wandering and taking it all in. We used to take father/daughters trips…my dad, my sister and myself and one of our trips was to Savannah. While we were there we headed over the bridge to Beaufort, SC. It didn’t quite turn out to be what we thought, but we still had a blast just walking all the streets and seeing more of the old homes and trees.ReplyCancel

One of my favorite parts of New Orleans was going to Lafayette Cemetery, which is locoed in the Garden District. For anyone going to New Orleans and wanting to see the St. Louis Cemetery 1 in Jackson Square, as of March 1 you have to have a tour guide and the one we inquired about was $26 a person!!! We didn’t know this until we’d walked clear over to it from Jackson Square. Being hot and a little tired, we weren’t exactly keen on searching for one and got on the Hop On Hop Off buss right there.

We really wanted to see a cemetery, and so we thought we’d research the other free ones later. As luck would have it, we chatted with a cute little family who were going to the Lafayette Cemetery the next day. When I looked it up, it was just a few blocks from our hotel!

So we opted to go at 8 a.m. the next morning and it couldn’t have been any better. We literally had the place to ourselves except a couple people. It was cool, it was shady, it was empty….sweet! The St. Louis one was crowded, no shade, mid-day….so our serendipitous trip to Lafayette was doubly delightful.


Lesson Learned (or so I hope)

But here’s the lesson I’ve learned. I have a tendency to set a low aperture number on my  camera thinking I’ll get a more artistic shot that way as well as I feel like the lighting will be better in shaded spots. I need to remember to NOT do this in every situation because in a place like the cemetery, it should be more in focus across the board. If I need to, I should set a little higher ISO to compensate. And it seems like it looks good on that little screen. Ohhhh…why must I learn these things the hard way.

Let’s see if I can smack that into my brain.

Here’s one of my favorite shots…even if it isn’t 100% sharp across the board. (The middle is sharp. I am kind of kicking myself.) I played with it and got three color choices.

Which do you prefer?

  • Sue FitzGerald - March 20, 2015 - 6:59 pm

    I love the first one, that kind of vintage colour pop, a bit like old film. I don’t mind the bit of bokeh, stops it from being a stock standard photo and makes the row look a lot longer. But then I’m someone who likes to shoot wide open a lot of the time too :-)ReplyCancel

    I love the second one. That pop of teal jumped tight out at me.ReplyCancel

  • Ruth G - March 21, 2015 - 3:46 pm

    I love saturated color, and so the first one is my favorite. Also, I’m in love with the little tufts of plants peeking out of the cracks in the stone walkways and in the niches. It adds such life to this place. I also find that the strong turquoise at the end of the shot leads the eye through the photo. I’m not a photographer, though, so take my thoughts with a grain of salt.

    Thanks so much for sharing! This looks like a wonderful place!ReplyCancel

  • Marilyn - March 22, 2015 - 6:41 am

  • Sandy - March 23, 2015 - 5:55 am

    I definitely like the first one. I think there is a certain place where pictures like the second one can be used…like greeting cards. There is so much beautiful detail and shading to be seen that the first picture brings it out best.ReplyCancel

  • Irene - March 25, 2015 - 5:00 am

    Gorgeous photos–if I had to choose, it would be the second one. It captures the mood for me. Makes me reminiscent of living in New Orleans and going to Easter sunrise service in a Jefferson Parish cemetery (in a suburb of New Orleans.) Inspiring setting!ReplyCancel

  • Ann Marshall Grigsby - March 26, 2015 - 9:48 pm

    The middle photo is probably most appealing to me: the light is soft and the colors muted as though hand tinted, lending a vintage, somewhat ghostly aura that befits the subject matter. In the first photo, the spots of bright color jump into the eye in jarring contrast to the predominant grays. The third photo’s black-and-white gradations are easier to behold, with no bright color points to assault the eye. Yet here the whites are stark and the darks indistinct, yielding a lifeless, lonely scene of solitude, appropriate perhaps, but just a bit too cold for comfort.ReplyCancel

  • Rhadonda - March 27, 2015 - 5:52 am

    Love your narrative. Such a cool cemetery. My 2 cents, I like the top one, love the colors of the moss and the flowers and the texture on the stones. Love how the path leads your eye in. Awesome!ReplyCancel

  • Karen Peterson - April 4, 2015 - 12:30 pm

    I love the top one with the turquoise and the red flowers; visited the cemetery when I was in Mississippi for school. Interesting city ;)ReplyCancel

I admit it. My small project of 6×8 Christmas pages is still unfinished. It’s not like it will require me to do a ton of work. But as with many of my projects, I start something and take forever to complete them.

I think that’s why I’m like ‘Go Laura’ for getting all these Christmas pages done.

Oh how I envy her drive to take on this task.

Let’s take a look.

What  a quick and easy way to crank through some Christmas photos!
Fabulous!
Aaaand a teensy bit jealous that she’s done. ;)


Here’s a few words from Laura:

Back in November of last year I decided to tackle years and years worth of Christmas photos, all of which I have never taken the time to scrapbook. I can’t really explain it, but Christmas is my least favorite topic/theme to scrap. I avoid it at all costs, even though it’s one time of year that I’m guaranteed to have lots of photos. I came up with a plan to scrap years worth of Christmases, quickly and easily. Kerri’s Storyboard Templates were crucial to my plan (which I blogged about HERE.  It only took me a few days to compile 6 years worth of photos, which included 6 family get-togethers and 3 Christmas morning’s with the girls. I created 16 photo collages, which included a total of 143 photos. And from those, I will end up with 6 two page layouts and 3 single page layouts. So far, I’ve created 4 of those two page layouts, and 2 of those single page layouts.

Because I really don’t enjoy scrapping Christmas, I knew I would keep these layouts simple and even a bit on the plain side. Most of them are very photo heavy, as I really wanted to get as many photos on the page as I could. So far, I’ve only adding journaling to one of the six layouts I’ve completed, and I’m totally ok with that. Most Christmases are pretty much the same for my family, so if I were to journal, it would pretty much say the same thing year after year. At one point, I started to worry a bit, as a few layouts started to look too much alike. But then I remembered what I had in mind when I started this project. My whole goal was to just get-them-done and not stress over them.

If there’s a topic/theme/event that you avoid scrapping, or just don’t enjoy scrapping, I still think it’s important to get those memories into your albums one way or another. For me, this was a way to tackle something I don’t necessarily enjoy scrapping, in a very easy and do-able way.


Okay…143 photos??? Wow!
Like I said before, Go Laura!

For my grand road trip journey, I purchased a Midori Traveler’s Notebook. I’d been eyeing them for a few months in anticipation of the trip–wanting a fun recording system, ya know.

I loved the idea of the blank pages for a very clean look, but knowing me, I would be bothered by the fact that I didn’t write straight or evenly. Then the ol’ Silhouette lightbulb went off. I could make my own journaling template in the size I needed and spacing that suited me–or suited a different mood of me.

That’s how this fun little freebie came to light!

journal_template_ex


To download–forever free–click HERE.

 

It comes in three different line widths: small, medium and large. You could modify it easily to include more, less, wider, narrower…whatever suits your needs. I’ve been using the medium. Gives me several lines, but my text isn’t squishy.

The lines are cut narrowly so it fits the tip of a pencil just loverly.

Write.

Erase.

And your page looks like you have a great eye. :)

And on another note.

Being on the road, to me, means appreciating every moment of where I am. And this beautiful sunrise we encountered after leaving Albuquerque is no exception. Beauty at its finest. I took this with my dSLR out the front window while hubby was driving down the freeway. It may not be the sharpest photo because of that, but it doesn’t matter. It captured the moment of what we enjoyed…for a long time.

I am
about to embark on another great adventure of a different kind.

I am collecting items to use along the way.

I am achieving a life-long dream of mine.

I am driving across this great country of ours.

I am ready to tell the story.

I am ready for this new adventure.

I am hoping you’ll join me for this ‘On The Road’ journey.

I am excited (just a little).

And now for the winner’s of the ‘choice of’ stamp set:

Amy (with ‘psu’ in the email name)
Erin D
Kathleen D

The winners have been notified. Congratulations ladies! And thanks everyone for playing along. It’s so fun to see your enthusiasm for the stamps….which, by the way, are back in stock and have begun shipping to all those that preordered the reorder! 

If you’ve been waiting to order your stamps, now would be a great time to do just that so you won’t have to wait again. ;)

I’ve been working some really great stuff for next month, so be sure to stay tuned for those…and I daresay, maybe even some sneaks! You know how fast they sold out the last time, so be sure to follow me on FB and Instagram for all the latest ‘live’ feeds.
