As you may have seen, I created my album for the Here There Everywhere class using pocket scrapbooking–Project Life style. Believe it or not, that was my first real major undertaking using pocket scrapbooking. I whole-heartedly believe in the Project Life (pocket scrapbooking) way of life. I’ve even created three kits and continue to create art for pocket pages here on my site. Oh, and speaking of, did you catch the brand new Something Wicked kit that I shared on social media yesterday? :)

something-wicked

(psst…now is a good time to pick this up during the fabulous fall sale!)

 

I love the simplicity of it all and the fact that you can add a little flair if you want. I love how it’s clean and grid-like. Makes it so visually appealing.

I just don’t do it. Or rather, I never seem to get a whole lotta ‘scrapping’ done by either method.

I need to change this.

I need to document.

I need to get those photos printed and out for people to see and remember. I love Artifact Uprising’s motto–Off your device and into your life.

I know that Project Life will help me with that.

It’s always on my mind to do, but I never get ‘er done.

why is that?

Okay, maybe it’s because there never seems to be enough hours in the day. But I think I need to make a priority of it. Heck, I even bought my Epson PictureMate Charm to help facilitate that.

Well, maybe I shouldn’t be too hard on myself because I did manage to document most of my travel for 2013 in pocket form, and I’m pretty stoked about it.

I just need to do it more.

Now I suppose you’re wondering, why all the introspection, MIss Kerri?

Well, between yesterday and today’s yumminess, it just motivates me even more. Check out this lovely pocket-page spread our Layle did today and read her comments along the visual way. (Links to the kits she used are included in her text.)


Truth is, I have a really rough time scrapping events.  Doesn’t matter what they are – birthdays, holidays, you name it and I struggle.  Recently I think I figured out a way around it – I started pocket page scrapbooking about a year ago.  Lo and behold, that process makes it super easy for me to scrapbook events!  I love pocket page scrapbooking, it’s the perfect method, for a single photo scrapper like me, to get lots of pictures scrapped!  Case in point, this pocket page spread documenting my mother in law’s annual Halloween party from last weekend. 

Week 42 - full


I fit 8 photos on this spread; that would have taken me 8 separate layouts if I kept to my old ways!

 

Week 42 - left


On the left side of my spread, I used the spider web from Kerri’s Foundations: Trick or Treat kit.  I sized it to 6×6, then cut off the top 2 inches of the cut in order for it to fit in the pocket page.  


Week 42 - web close up


I inserted the cut directly into the pocket page without placing anything behind it, that way it looks see through, like a real spider web.  I also used Sunday from the Seven Days a Week kit.

 

Week 42 - right


The kids spent a good amount of time at the party carving pumpkins, so the right side of my spread focused on that.  I used the pumpkins cut file from the All About Fall kit and then cut the pumpkin from the This and That: All Hallows Eve Just Shapes kit.



Week 42 - pumpkins close up


To wrap things up and tie the two pages together, I cut a few bats from the This and That: All Hallows Eve Just Shapes kit and adhered them directly to the top/outside of the pockets.

One of the greatest thing about pocket page Scrapbooking is the number of fun cut files you can include without it looking cluttered, like it might on a 12×12 page!

 

I absolutely adore this spread! But I especially looooove the spider web in its own pocket!!! I need to do that! And the mix of ‘handwritten’ (cut) words? fab.


Okay then. These two girls this week have motivated me to make a page. I’ve cut out some things and have some things that I’ve been holding onto so I can record our memories from our little excursion to the Uintas last month.

I feel a spread coming on….

fall-sale2

Not only is this fabulous sale going on right now through October 31, but we have this fabulous Project Life (pocket) page from Miss Maggie!

[ Designs | All About Fall (hello fall, autumn, leaves changing colors)/ Beautiful Somewhere (chevron, map, Everyone Needs…, This Is Pretty Awesome, For The Love…)   / October Thirty-One (october) ]

Don’t know about you, but it knocks my socks off. :) Love  how Maggie added her own special touches to each of the 3×4 cards. Love that the card bases are white and have their touch of color so that the photos really pop!

As the card say, this is pretty awesome…just sayin’. :)

Here’s what Maggie has to say: 

One of my favorite ways to document multiple photos is with pocket pages. It’s such a nice change from traditional scrapbooking and, when you use digital card files, you have the opportunity to truly customize your journal cards. For this page I used Kerri’s Beautiful Somewhere set. These files are typically for Travel pages, but, with just a few changes, I turned them into cards perfectly suited for my celebration of Autumn…just by recoloring the cards, removing phrases that didn’t “fit,” and adding a few script words (from the All About Fall collection).

I added a few more of Kerri’s words to my photos to help tell the story, and a few embellishments to add dimension…and just like that, the page is done. And one of the best parts for me is that I can do almost everything I need to do right on the computer…then I just print everything out and tuck the pieces into their pockets.

The leaves are whirlin’ around in the wind these days…even though it’s going to be 80 today. What???

I’m going to be really sad when all those glorious colors are no longer in the beautiful trees where they belong and instead, we are left with bare nekkedness when looking towards the skies.

Can’t they just stay on the trees and maintain the beautiful colors until spring?

I guess not, eh? And this is the last week of October…just six days until Halloween.

So I guess it’s the perfect time for this:

fall-sale2

Excludes the new Santa’s Workshop class and the individual Oh The Places You Will Go class.


When All Hallows’ Eve is over, so is the sale…so beware! 

[ insert evil maniacal laugh here ]


And now, for the winners of the Where In the World Is Kerri Bradford.
(You know, it just doesn’t have the same ring as Carmen Sandiego.)

It was fun seeing all your guesses. I thought I could trick ya with Roman and European looking columns and building innards, but so many of you guessed our nation’s capitol–Washington DC. And you were correct!

We had a great time there. It’s where Zach served his LDS  mission and so we got to see the various places he hung around and we saw so many other cool things. I think one of my favorite moments was going to the Lincoln Memorial at night and hanging out on the steps. We just sat there looking at the Washington Monument all lit up and looking pretty in the reflecting pool. It wasn’t the longest trip–just four full days and two days of flying there and back–but we had a great time. I will share more photos and details of the trip soon.

Until then…here are the randomly drawn winners!

If you’ve been following me on social media–Facebook and Instagram–you know that I went ‘radio silent’ for a few days. I actually left my computer at home and went away with the family for a few days.

Leaving my computer behind was a rather big decision. I’ve always taken my laptop so that I could do work that needed to be done while gone.

Well, this time, I took the plunge and left it home….and it felt grand.

I was able to focus on where I was–with my family–and could ‘stop and appreciate’ the various places we went without thinking about ‘this or that’ that needed to be done–for work or church even.

Now, if you’ve been a KBS friend here for a while, you know I love playing…

Where In The World Is Kerri Bradford? 

And that’s what we’re playing today.

With this particular contest, every comment is an entry.

No need to worry about guessing correctly to win. A little sleuthing could tell you where I was. So instead, have fun without the sleuthing…guess…and leave a comment.  :)

I’ll draw three winners of a $25 KBS gift card on Saturday!

Here’s the first of three photo sneak peeks. I’ll post two more on Thursday and Friday. And if you’ve been following me on social media, you will have seen a few more photos. They are fun…and a little indicative of where I was.

And now for the winner of the Studio Calico Underground Kit….

That would be Joanne Pineda! Congrats Joanne! I’ve emailed you some details.

Thanks for playing everyone! That was a lot of fun! :)

It’s Friday and that means we’ve pretty much come to the weekend, not to mention we are just two weeks from Halloween folks! Dan’s been hard at work creating spooky things for Evermore again this year. They are making it bigger and better than last year and should be loads of fun. If you’re in the area you should check it out.

Here’s a little preview to tantalize your tastebuds.


And if you’re not-so-much the Halloween fan and would really love to use all the All About Fall kit, check out what you can do that’s not in the spooky category. Laura did a mighty fine job with that!

colors: awesome
kid: adorable

That’s what you call the Cliff Notes version. :)


Here’s what Laura has to say:

I was browsing thru Kerri’s new All About Fall kit, really wanting to make a fall layout. The thing is, we don’t really experience “fall” here where I live. However, the word “wicked” caught my eye and it made me think about some photos I took of one of my absolute favorite daycare kiddos ever. Mateo is seriously one of the cutest little boys ever, and knowing him and his awesome personality, I felt the title “Wicked Cute Dude” fit him perfectly. I love that Kerri has a huge variety of kits loaded up with hand drawn words, as it’s so easy to find just the mix you’re looking for, for any given project.

  • Karen S - October 17, 2014 - 6:53 am

    Wickedly cute layout! Kerri, I was wondering if in the future in the layouts you highlight if the designer would give more tips on how it was done instead of the why. That would be so much more helpful!ReplyCancel

Confession: I’ve already been listening to Christmas music.

gasp.

I know.

But it’s for a good reason. I’ve been busy in my little workshop and it has gotten me in the spirit to bring you two amazing things today.

One is a brand new Silhouette class to learn the things all elves  should know to increase their Silhouette skills at Christmas time (or any time, really). The other is a kit for every good boy and girl that decides they would rather have their designs delivered with the reindeer. Although you won’t have to wait that long. :)

I know what you’re thinking…oh what fun is right!

Class starts November 10 and if you sign up by that date, you can save 20% on the workshop!

You can read all the details on the class HERE.

And here are a few more closeup shots of the goodies that you’ll be designing+making….orrrrr, just making. :)

It’s hard to photograph gold vinyl, but that’s what’s used to make those stripes…and even the star. :)

This is a first for me…offering a choice of class or kit. 

It’s rather exciting, I think. :)

  • nancy wolff - October 14, 2014 - 9:07 pm

    Kerri I see that the class will be using version 3 of silhouette studio. I am not ready to update yet. Still to buggy. I know I can follow along with version 2, but will you be including version 2 files. (Hope so.)ReplyCancel

  • Carrie Whiteley - October 15, 2014 - 6:29 am

  • Helen - October 15, 2014 - 7:21 am

    Wish you were offering class for V2 as I am not ready to move to V3.ReplyCancel

    • Kerri - November 9, 2014 - 10:32 am

      Hey Charlotte!
      Sorry it’s not possible. Creating classes take a lot of time and so just like people create Photoshop classes in their current version and not multiple versions, so must I with Studio. :) You can still follow along pretty darn well using v2 with the v3 workshop instruction. I do share tips and tricks for using v3, but you can still do the normal stuff between both programs. Version 3 is working pretty darn well now. You can always upgrade and if you don’t like it, Silhouette has the Legacy (v2) version on their site that you can reinstall.ReplyCancel
