hello there  •  floopy flower

Our week-long showcase on the Hello There Silhouette card class continues with Nichol’s rendition of this sweet ‘floopy’ flower card. Love the color choices and the stamped sentiment on the banner. All the extra bits and baubles are just icing on the cake. Here’s what Nichol has to say: I added stamping detail to the ‘floopy […]

hello there  •  paper bag + envelope

Okay, so you may have seen me get confused previously about which designs are my favorite from the Hello There class–and the confusion obviously continues. This paper bag is one of them…too. I can never truly decide. ;) I love Nichol’s use of it here! I love the all the accents she’s added here. And […]

hello there  •  week-long showcase

I think that one of my all-time favorite classes here at KBS is the Hello There card class. Okay, maybe it’s a toss-up with Just Add Color and Design Secrets. (We’ll see if Here There Everywhere class takes over as number one eventually. ;) ) The class shows how to create ten fabulous cards that […]

J’adore l’idée de Nichol, c’est génial !

so lucky for friends

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 […]

cameras —> cards

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 […]

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! :)

Barbara R - March 8, 2014 - 8:43 pm

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


Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and you may be wondering just what kind of card to make for your loved ones. Well, look no further because Nichol has got something to share with you today for just such an occasion! [ Designs | February Fourteen (xo) / Banners / Life Additions #2 (frame) ] I love how Nichol […]

LOVE these cards!!!!!!!!!! Wow!

Phyllis B. - January 29, 2014 - 12:43 am

Love Nichol’s cards! They are both beautiful… but isn’t the postage edge in Life Additions #2, not Life Additions #1? Perhaps I have misunderstood what was used. In any case, the cards are stunning!

Kerri - January 29, 2014 - 8:06 am

Yep, you are correct Phyllis. I wasn’t paying attention that it was written incorrectly. :) It’s fixed now.

Phyllis B. - January 29, 2014 - 4:16 pm

Good, Kerri, but it still needs to be fixed in Nichol’s first paragraph. Don’t want someone to buy the wrong set and be ticked! (I’m an old editor, so I find things like this frequently…) BTW, I love your stuff! I made your “Jingle all the Way” frame for Christmas…used red vinyl for the words (was out of black), and got several compliments (thanks to you)!

day two of the extravaganza!

Okay, so if you could only hear that in my head when I ‘say it….extravagAAANNNzzaaa…. Any time I thought about this week, it was always that….extravagAAANNNzzaaa. Just looked up the definition and it basically said, ‘an exciting show or event.’ And well, boys and girls, that’s exactly what we have going on with all this […]

Love them. You are right–they are simple but what a nice variety. Off to my Silhouette to create some of these. Thanks, Laura, for the wonderful ideas.

Ruth G - July 23, 2013 - 1:49 pm

Fabulous! Sweet, but meaningful and who could dislike something that comes together so quickly and is still so great? Thanks so much for sharing, Kerri and Laura!

Helen G. - July 23, 2013 - 2:18 pm
