hello there  • graduate card

You know, it’s been strange this year not having any kids in–the traditional sense of the word–school. You don’t think about the holidays when all the kids are out. Spring break? Yeah, when’s that? No graduations to attend or have your kids go to for their friends. You kind of become oblivious to it all […]

This card is great, but how cute would it be to hang a little mini-tassel toward the side off the horizontal piece above the word (it looks so much like the flat part of a mortarboard)on the first card!

hello there  •  hello flip card

I don’t know ’bout you, but I have soooo been enjoying Nichol’s cards this week…and this one is no exception. I love her take on the flip card, especially her adding the white-on-white flower background to it. love. All her touches with the stamps and flowers and such makes this pop in a whole new […]

Love the sentiment freebies from the class. Is there a way to purchase those without the class?

Pat - April 17, 2014 - 2:17 pm

I would love to know if these could purchase these too since I didn’t take the class. Thanks.

Kerri - April 17, 2014 - 2:42 pm

Because they are a ‘perk’ of taking the class, they aren’t normally for sale. However, I do recognize that others don’t need or want to take the class so there are two or three times that I offer them for sale…usually around ‘big’ days, like Black Friday/Cyber Monday and others…. You never know what might appear for any big scrapbooking ‘holiday’ that might be coming up soon. ;)

O.M.G. How did I miss this flip card in the class?! Seriously. I would have bet money that I had completed all the lessons in this class but OBVIOUSLY, I must have missed a few. (How did THAT happen?!) No.. instead I buy a metal die to make this kind of card. Okay, so the die IS cool… but I could have saved myself $30! Oh well, at least I know I have a class or two to catch up on. :)

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 […]

This is beautiful! Love these examples of different ways to use the cut files!

Aloha Kerri,
I was wondering if it was possible for you to teach us how to make an envelope to fit any size card? Maybe in the new class or a tutorial on the blog. Silhouette wasn’t very helpful when they replied to me to use the scale window?!? I have ruined envelopes and know there must be an easy way to create one. Hugs & Mahalo.

Kerri - April 16, 2014 - 2:55 pm

Hey Candy!
One of the easiest ways to do it is to draw a rectangle the same size as your card and then size your envelope so that that rectangle fits in the designated card-holding space.

I think I did bring that up once in one of my classes…can’t remember which one.

If you’re talking a square card with an already-created rectangle envelope, then you can do the same thing, but then you’d need to worry about making the envelope fit a square space, if that’s what you’re wanting. Sometimes just moving the side handles, changing just the width (or height) to make it more square can work, but that can alter the design of the envelope too. If the points are few in number, you can always grab the points and move them in on each side.

But that first option is a pretty sure-fire way to make sure your card and envelope pretty much match up.

Does that help at all?

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 […]

There is such a thing as a clear glitter marker!?!- OooooH!

C’est sublime, j’adore ! !

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 !

happy st. patrick’s day!

Well, folks. We’ve had an amazing few days this fine long lucky weekend, but it’s now coming to  a close. Of course, the fun never really ends, does it? ;) But the sale does though…fyi…so this is the last opportunity to take advantage it. So we have one last amazing page to share here from Miss Nichol.

This page is just amazing. So soft, delicate and feminin. I just love every détails.

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 […]

C’est adorable !!!!Bravo Nichol !

Lynette - March 5, 2014 - 2:20 pm

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!

kiss kiss  •  love you

Ahhh…it’s the day of love. A day of particularly expressing one’s affection to another. A day of chocolates, eating out, hugs, kisses, cards, candy…an all around fun day, I’d say. I recently went through a little treasure box of things from when I was eight and found these Valentines. Nothing says I love like you […]
