my new favorite phrase

I just love that new phrase from the latest Happy kit. The one that says: ‘Such a perfect day. I’m glad I spent it with you.’ How many times have you just had those moments where you werejust happy and content to spend some time with a favorite someone? Well, now that phrase is in […]

I really like this! I love how you layered the different elements. Thanks for sharing. Now I am really wanting that ‘Happy’ SVG file!

Julie S. - April 18, 2012 - 7:59 pm

WOW! I LOVE this! Can’t wait to use that phrase! You really make me want to get back to the Silhouette class! I’ve only had time to finish one lesson…I want to finish it, so I can take the 2nd one!

Rhadonda - April 18, 2012 - 8:38 pm

Awesome page. I bet that does feel so cool to see what others do with what you have given them. Amazing.

Ruth G - April 19, 2012 - 11:20 am

Wonderful! Love that there’s lots of pictures and lots of other eye candy! A truly rich page!

Laura M - April 19, 2012 - 1:24 pm

Another amazing layout. Nichol just oozes creativity. Love everything about this.

Carol Mc - April 19, 2012 - 7:26 pm

Sensational layout.

it’s a spring thing

Gorgeous weather? Took a vacation today. Wind and cold blew in. Bits of snow. Just bits. A flurry here and there.But a look out the window at the lilac bush and its green buds a-burstin’ gives one hopes of the warm weather to return very soon. And then a layout like this from little ol’ […]

storyboard #6 + a video

I think I may have mentioned before . . . I can never have enough storyboards! Did I say that before?I just can’t remember. Okay, so yeah, that’s sarcasm. I say it all the time! :) So when the brain starts swirling in a direction,ya just gotta go with the flow. Therefore, I present to […]

Kerri I ordered the new storyboard It says can’t find it I never got email so Please let me know before I go hittin the paypal button again lol lol xo love it by the way

Rhadonda - February 16, 2012 - 1:02 pm

Genius girl, just genius. I love it when your brain swirls.

Alisha Barton - February 16, 2012 - 3:00 pm

I love the templates but every time I try and print them they never fit on an 8×10. I don’t have a printer at home any suggestions

Robin - February 16, 2012 - 5:59 pm

This is gonna be fun!!!

Kerri - February 17, 2012 - 8:11 am

Hey Alisha!
I think I’m going to do a little mini video about this, but in the interim what you could do to be assured you get it to print on within an 8×10 photo sheet is save your storyboard composite as a new JPG, create a new document that’s 8×10, and bring in that JPG onto the 8×10 document and save a new JPG to send to the printer. You could also flatten your storyboard image and then copy it onto the 8×10 document too. This way, if you take it to a photo printer, the document is 8×10 in size and the photo printing place won’t try to size it to accommodate to the 8×10 size. Also make sure your DPI matches up. Both the storyboard and the new 8×10 document should be 300dpi.

Let me know if that helps ya. :)

i love | storyboards

I admit it. I have a problem. I love storyboards. Okay, make that I loooooooooove storyboards. They make gathering photos and placing them all nice and neat so much faster . . . and it’s more flexible! Gone are the days of measuring the various sizes you need, cropping them, and then printing them (or […]

Pamela K. - February 7, 2012 - 4:23 am

Oooh! I love these, too! Look forward to using these!

CarolineD - February 7, 2012 - 8:11 am

I’m pretty certain that the only thing better than a new set of storyboards is a new set of storyboards ON SALE.

Thanks Kerri!

Vicki - February 7, 2012 - 8:54 am

I looked on your site but couldn’t figure out–are all the story boards 8.5×11??? or do we resize them to what we need??

Kerri - February 7, 2012 - 10:01 am

They are all different sizes, but generally ranging between 8″-10″ at the largest size so you can print them at home or wherever. And yes, they can be resized. Some of the kits do indicate the sizes on the composite example, like the Snapshots. And Storyboard #4 has on the composite example that they are all 8.5×11″ in size. But again, these can be resized as needed. If you click on the storyboard you’re interested in, it will take you to a larger version of it in the store so you can read the text better on the image. Then, you can also follow the “Want More Info” link and it will take you to the original post about it.

Hope that helps. :)

stamping a scene | homecoming style

When the ever-so lovely Miss Nichol asked if I wanted to participate with her Two Peas Scrapbook Stamping series, of course I had to say yes! I mean, how often do I get to do something for her? October’s subject was all about making a scene. Now, when I think of  a ‘scene’, my mind doesn’t […]

Dolly/scrapthat - October 4, 2011 - 8:56 am

Fabulous LO Kerri!! I love your stamping :) Nichol has definitely inspired me to stamp more often also :)

Lynsey - October 4, 2011 - 8:56 am

Do you have a place for people to show what they have done with your products?

Lynsey - October 4, 2011 - 8:57 am

Ps lovely lo and nichol has also inspired me and how I found your lovely products in the first place.

Kerri - October 4, 2011 - 9:17 am

Hey Lynsey!
There is a Flickr group for anyone who’d like to share what they’ve been making. You can find that here: . Also, I’m in the process of setting up a gallery for the pages and projects shared on the blog to make it easier than following a Category link. It’s comin’…. :) In the interim, you can use the Category link to find things by artist or project style (page, card, etc.).

Cori in WA - October 4, 2011 - 10:15 am

Love it! Lots of photos, great title and words and die cuts all in one fell swoop (or on one fantastic page)? Makes a girl swoon.

Sandra K. - October 4, 2011 - 1:00 pm

Great layout, Kerri. I love using my stamps on layouts now, thanks to Nichol! It is so much fun.

{dawn} - September 12, 2011 - 2:19 pm

Just when I thought perhaps I might figure out how to use the templates you have gone and complicated it! Please take it easy on us over-50 grandmother types!! :)

And, Happy Birthday to you and your hubby!

Kerri - September 12, 2011 - 2:29 pm

Hey Dawn…it’s super easy….really!
They work just the same, but now you have two additional frame layers–and they come turned off so as not to confuse ya.
So if you want a frame, just turn that layer on.
Once you try it, you’ll go “Ohhhhh. What was I worried for?” ;)

Sandra K. - September 12, 2011 - 2:36 pm

A Big Happy Birthday to you both!! Have fun this week!
An other stunning card from Shari. I just love her work.
And well done on the new template. It makes it so much easier for us. Thank you!!!

Sandra :)

Rhadonda - September 12, 2011 - 2:48 pm

We love to celebrate with you!! And yes birthday celebrations are entitled to last longer than one day. It is an unwritten rule i believe. So have a great celebratory week!!

Issy Scotland - September 12, 2011 - 4:13 pm

Hope you and Dan have a great celebratory birthday week! I just LURVE the new templates…think I’ll have to use them for scrapping my life in the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s- just so my grankids have something to remember me by! Not that I’m planning on departing this mortal coil yet awhile! Love from Scotland xo

Nichol Magouirk - September 12, 2011 - 8:15 pm

Love the card and the dimension!

The new templates are wonderful and LOVE the option of the frames!


Renee Givens - September 12, 2011 - 9:47 pm

Love the new templates. Can a person who has no experience with this and PSE be able to figure out how to use them. I hope so because they are just what I wanted. Happy birthday to both of you and can’t wait to see what the rest of the week brings.

Kerri - September 12, 2011 - 10:13 pm

Just wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the wonderfulness you share here as well as the birthday wishes. :)

And Renee, the photo templates really are super easy to use. You can see some information on how to use them under the Tutorials link above here on my site. Also, you can try out a freebie frame for yourself here:

Hope that helps! :)
