this & that . . . just shapes

So I’ve been thinkin’ (dangerous, I know). There are probably many of you that look at the This & That kits and think “Oh that’s cute, but I don’t really want to make one of those.” And maybe there are those of you that do buy the kit just to use the shapes and printables […]

OH MAN… I am in TTTTRRROUUUBLE. SUPER DUPER Squealing over here!!! Thank you so much for doing this! Can NOT wait to purchase them!

Joy - June 18, 2011 - 2:59 am

Oh girlie you are tempting me so badly…love all of these and will have to have a big thinking session…thankfully heading back to work next week to earn more money…LOL Hugs!

Kerri - June 18, 2011 - 3:17 am

Just want to make sure that everyone understands that if you've already bought any of the This & That series to work with the 7gypsies tray, that you don't need to buy these as they are the exact same shapes that are in those kits. I'm just making "shape" kits with this series for those that would like to use the shapes, but don't necessarily want to spend extra money on the entire kit (with printables).


luvmysilhouette - June 18, 2011 - 3:30 am

Ha Ha Ha We Know I would buy them anyway I loooooove Kerri Bradford Designs…You The Bomb Girlfriend…

Kerri - June 18, 2011 - 3:48 am

You're so cute. Just sent them so keep an eye out for them. I went out to dinner with hubby tonight and spent some time with our dog–who cut his foot and is now a conehead/'walking lamp' for a couple weeks and can't go for a walk.

Just gettin' back to the computer…. :)

luvmysilhouette - June 18, 2011 - 3:55 am

Oh No He Is ADORABLE SO GLAD YALL BROUGHT HIM HOME!!!!I loooooooooove my dog for sure…

in transit

Every time I add subway art to a This & That kit, I think, “This would make a great cut file!” Finally . . . I did it! [Comes in SVG/STUDIO/DXF/AIv8/PNG] Price: $5 I had to make them with a similar font to the grunge font that I’d use for the printable version. Can’t really […]

These look awesome, tedious but awesome. I am currently working on the June TT. I know, i am always behind. You tease us mercilessly ( : Thanks!

Esther - June 17, 2011 - 7:14 am

Wahoo! Purchased already! Love them Kerri.

Teri Berrios - June 17, 2011 - 11:29 am

Another cute set….LOVE IT!! Off to purchase :) Hugs, T

Scrapthat - June 17, 2011 - 12:53 pm

FABULOUS!! You make the cutest files Kerri! TFS your talent with us!
I have a technical question for you if you have time to answer…
Is there a way to eliminate a line?
Can I somehow cut out America and replace it with Canada by welding in Canada?? Just wondering. :)
I'll still be getting it though!

Kerri - June 17, 2011 - 1:40 pm

I'll do you one better Scrapthat…I'll make it for you and all my Canadian friends and include it in the kit. Question, though. Would you rather it say 'maple leaf' instead of 'stars and stripes?'

Kerri - June 17, 2011 - 1:42 pm

Oh….and I'll change it to July 01 too. :)

dawnelaine - June 17, 2011 - 2:17 pm

Oh, I am so excited! I was SO hoping that your July This & That would be patriotic, and if the new subway art you show above is any indication, I will be getting my wish! YEAH!!

Scrapthat - June 17, 2011 - 2:31 pm

That is SO sweet of you Kerri!! Yes I think you have the wording perfect Kerri…Maple Leaf, July 01 and Canada. You're a doll! :)

Kerri - June 17, 2011 - 2:49 pm

DONE my friend! :)

Scrapthat - June 18, 2011 - 1:11 pm

Man you are fast!! Thanks so much for doing it!! :) I can't tell you how inspiring your files are! :)TFS!


You know, I still have a hard time believing I have two graduated kids. The next one–who just got her permit (yikes!)–will graduate in two more years. What the french toast??? Time goes by too quickly. Believe you me. Since it’s that time of year and all, I thought perhaps there might be a few […]

My twin girls are heading into their senior year at college. Seriously? Didn't they just drive away leaving me crying? Kind of freaky how fast live is moving these days and when they were little it seemed some days would never end ( : Trying to enjoy each day, each hour, each minuet.

Becky Handforth - June 14, 2011 - 5:25 pm

I have a son who will be a Senior next year and one who graduated in 2007. Then I have my little one who will be in fifth grade next year. Time does fly.

Lee Ann - June 15, 2011 - 2:32 am

My daughter just graduated 8th grade which is a really big deal as she had been at the same school since preschool. Our graduation activities, which I was in charge of or assisted with all of them, rival many of the high schools here.

dawnaclark - June 15, 2011 - 5:44 pm

Thank you for this! My "baby" is a senior in high school next year and I can see this set coming in very handy! I just bought it and then downloaded all the wonderful freebies you offer. I figured $8 is a STEAL for all the free stuff and tutorials you give! Great blog!

Ellie A. - June 15, 2011 - 5:58 pm

This will be perfect for me for Next year my oldest son will be graduating 8th grade. Another awesome kit!

Beth - June 16, 2011 - 1:41 pm

Yep, my baby graduated from HS two weeks ago! She'll join her brother at Purdue in the fall. I get teary eyed every time I think about it!

Kerri, I just love your designs!

Kerri - June 16, 2011 - 2:10 pm

It's totally crazy, isn't it? And I've had the occasion to have them all gone for a week or two during the past couple of summers. It's really weird having it just be Dan and I. I don't know how to cook for two. lol

And Lee Ann? Sounds like you have quite the shindig for your 8th grader. Wow!

And thanks for all your kind words about the kit! Glad you like it. :)

Stacy Milford - June 19, 2011 - 3:31 am

Yep…just had my oldest son graduate from high school in May! What a crazy ride! I'm very tempted to to get this kit! I just got my Silhouette…so I'm a newbie. Right now, I'm having trouble getting my software to launch on my PC…it initializes, starts to open, & then nothing…so bummed :(

Kerri - June 20, 2011 - 3:50 am

Hey Stacy! Have fun with your new toy! And give those boys at Silhouette a call or email. They are wonderful to work with and will get you going in no time!

Stacy Milford - June 21, 2011 - 3:50 am

Thanks Kerri! I tried the email route over the weekend & haven't heard anything back yet…think I will give them a call tomorrow! LOVE your project life post today :) That's another of your kits that I have my eye on!

the friday freebie: weather vane

Maybe it has something to do with spending time in farmland. Maybe it has something to do with my serious case of the traveling bug. A weather vane [or arrow] seems to be a-fittin’ my mood at the moment. You can download this image for free HERE. [Comes in SVG/STUDIO/DXF/AIv8/PNG] Looks like we’re in for […]

Scrapthat - June 10, 2011 - 3:16 pm

Thanks Kerri!! I have seen a couple nice days this summer but haven't even gotten to 75 degrees yet (insert eye roll here! LOL) I'm sure I will find some great use for your lovely file! :)

Teri Berrios - June 10, 2011 - 3:44 pm

Hi Kerri!! Thank you so much for your free files. Last night I made a card using two of them (The LAUGH and the Sunflower). I'm loving my Silhouette SD and have been playing around with your files. Your designs are amazing!!! Hugs, T

dawnelaine - June 10, 2011 - 5:08 pm

Love this weather vane!!

We are in for a much cooler weekend after a couple of brutally blistering days (and nights!arg…) My plans for this weekend include putting together your Summertime T&T, plus using some of your Getaway designs (and Nichol's ideas!) on a vacation layout!

Have a great weekend, and THANKS!

Rhadonda - June 10, 2011 - 5:54 pm

These are so neat, iconic. Love them. I too hope to get the Summertime T&T together this weekend. Enjoy your great weather.

nativetexangirl - June 10, 2011 - 10:34 pm

Thank you for the free file. I love weathervanes.

Karen - June 11, 2011 - 5:57 pm

Thanks, Keri! This is a great one.

Allie.Duckienz - November 26, 2011 - 4:20 pm

Thanks so much. These will totally make an appearance in my Project Life album :D

Wendy - July 22, 2013 - 11:29 pm

Love these.
Thanks Kerrie :)

school years: add ons

Rhadonda - June 9, 2011 - 8:14 pm

You are so sweet to listen! These are a great add-on. Could you make the humidity go away in Missouri? The mountains in Utah look so beautiful. Do you have a weather complaint or is it perfect there? Too much snow? Thanks again!

Nichol Magouirk - June 10, 2011 - 12:37 am

you ROCK, my friend. seriously!!!!

caroline - June 10, 2011 - 2:46 pm

Good grief. You're killing me. Love so many of the packages you've put up lately! They'll have to wait til Thursday. Rather *I'll* have to wait til Thursday….drats!

And since you obviously take requests – my son is playing travel league baseball. Everything geared to sports is so juvenile/cutesy looking, when what I'm looking for is graphic/grungy/ and more word oriented.

Ellie A. - June 11, 2011 - 12:37 pm

OHHH Another one into my Silhouette happy library it goes! OHH I see a Baseball request being a baseball mama of 2 I would LOVE that! We are in the playoffs right now so I am taking more pics then I can even count & my goal is to actually scrapbook them but its so hard to find anything that I really want to use… I'm say YES to all the Above that Caroline sais OH & a MUST saying is "Suicide Squeeze" :) In the words of my oldest.. That would be Epic Ha..

Stacey - June 11, 2011 - 5:53 pm

Do you have anything with Graduation in it?

Kerri - June 13, 2011 - 2:36 pm

Rhadonda, if I could make humidity go away, I would. Me and humidity don't mix–or more specifically, my HAIR and humidity don't mix. It ain't pretty. lol

Stacey, I've got a graduation kit coming out here today or tomorrow. And I believe I see a baseball kit in the near future too. :) I'm with ya Caroline, not into cutesy as a general rule. Just ain't my thing.

school years: for my UK+IRE friends

I have a soft spot in my heart for the UK and Ireland. I went to London to help Lisa Bearnson with QVC a couple of times back in the day. As a result, I’ve had the opportunity to see that beautiful country, including Scotland and Ireland–and even Amsterdam to a scrapbooking event. Goooooorgeous! I […]

Fifi - June 9, 2011 - 8:34 am

This is amazing I made comment on Nichol McGourik's blog when the american versions came out. I think you've covered all of the bases, except… (sorry) more colloquially the final two years (when people do 'A' levels) are called the SIXTH FORM with the first year commonly being called the LOWER SIXTH and the final year the UPPER SIXTH. (we make it so hard here in the uk, sorry :( )

Kerri - June 9, 2011 - 2:06 pm

Okay, so Fifi, if add a file that says "upper sixth" and "lower sixth" will that work?

Thanks for clearing that up for me!
And yeah, you UK-ers make it interesting. ;)

Jan - June 10, 2011 - 2:26 am

I too have a fondness for Ireland. Would love to go back again and visit. My son is going again in the fall with his wife to show her where he spent his mission. Lucky. Love all your stuff kerri.

Fifi - June 13, 2011 - 10:31 am

I apologise for my nation, I have to confess I din't realize how complicated it all was because I was educated in england and I just thought scotland was different. But I found out how confusing it all was because of moving around a bit more. It also doesn't help that school years got completely reorganized about 15 years ago so now you even have confused parents not fully understanding where their kids are because this system changed!

An upper sixth and a lower sixth would be amazing though, thank you :D and thanks for considering the uk in the first place you're amazing

Kerri - June 13, 2011 - 2:10 pm

You're so funny Fifi. It's all good. :) I've added upper and lower sixth as well as grammar/secondary/high-school for my little Scottish friend. I just want to make sure I get you guys all covered, so I'm happy to make the additions.

But that's really crazy that it's changed so much that even the parents are confused as to what grade their kids are in the system.

Thanks for your help! :)

say what???

I have a thing for out-of-the-norm titles. I have a thing for design. I have a thing for fonts. Put them together? Sheer delight. (okay, so i’m a nerd) But this all brings me to my next kit: a plethora of creatively made verbiage to accent your many creations. (comes in SVG/STUDIO/DXF/AIv8/PNG) Price: $9 I hope […]

SUPER cute Kerri!! The more I see, the more I want!! :) Please keep up the great work! :)

Ellie A. - June 8, 2011 - 5:18 pm

You just know what I needed to make a Smiley Me! Can't wait to use this kit as well.

Rhadonda - June 8, 2011 - 5:45 pm

Love the way you work it girl, the titles of course. I laughed at the Blah, blah, blah. I think my kids look at me and wish they could say that! Totally awesome! I am so glad you love sharing these. You should start a flickr group or someplace where people could post pages they make using your products.

Anonymous - June 8, 2011 - 8:29 pm

Thanks for keeping us going and helping us to make awesome pages. (humm, humm – Will there be a Patriotic theme This and That kit? :0 Diana

Rhadonda - May 27, 2011 - 6:20 pm

Thanks for the freebie! Looks like another great kit acoming. I will actually be on vacation next week so will get it when i get back. Got May's cut but never together. We must lose days here in Missouri too!

Diana - May 27, 2011 - 8:13 pm

Thanks Kerri for the freebie. I'm doing last years Father's Day pages and this will fit in perfect. Thank You

Cutiephinphin - May 27, 2011 - 8:37 pm

Thank u for the freebie…

carilackner - May 27, 2011 - 9:19 pm

Kerri- I don't know if I'm the only one but i can't download your freebie. It gives me an error. Thanks! I'm off to preorder the new kit and get the education one!

Amber - May 27, 2011 - 9:56 pm

I love your freebies, thanks but I keep getting an error message too.

Diana - May 27, 2011 - 10:16 pm

Ditto on the error message — whew, thought it was me and my computer!!

Anonymous - May 27, 2011 - 10:53 pm

Thanks for the cute freebie, but I also keep getting an error message. It says "Internet explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later."

I've gotten this same message before, but at other times have been able to DL your freebies without any problems.
Any suggestions?

Kerri - May 27, 2011 - 11:38 pm

K, I think there are problems with Internet Explorer and Google Docs because it downloads fine for me.

I've researched this before when a person or two has encountered a problem and it seems to result as problem with IE. One solution they'd mentioned was to clean out the cache. It could be that your IE isn't the most recent version either. Another solution would be to try a different program, like Firefox or Google Chrome.

A couple other people signed into Google to get it and it worked, although you shouldn't have to because it's set to just click and download.

Maybe give those options a try and see what happens. I don't understand what the deal is. It seems to be happening a little more often too.

argh. :)

Issy - May 28, 2011 - 12:35 am

Oh the problems that I've had trying to leave you a comment with Blogger! It's been misbehaving something terrible!
Anyhow, this time I did manage to download your freebie ok…so thanks Kerri for that xo. Loving your new This and That! (Another one to get come next month's payday!)Love from Scotland xo
