So I’m trying to recoup from the past week of all the HSN craziness, but I thought I’d take a quick moment to share this great little card from our Miss Shari! [ Shapes | Life Additions #2 (chevron+tabbed folder / This+That: Lucky (flower+vase) Love the chevron design on there! Shari made the chevron background […]

the month of loooooove

It is February. I can hardly believe it! Officially, we are now in the month love….and warmer temps, I’m hoping. :) Not only is it Valentine’s Day next week, but it’s also hubby’s and my 25th anniversary. Holy cannoli!  We talked about doing something extra special–like take a trip to Hawaii (I was sooo close […]

Love how Shari used the printables! (I’ve always been a fan of your printables!!) It looks like she even cut some shapes out of the excess printables. Such a gorgeous card!!

Cindy - February 4, 2013 - 4:37 pm

Very nice card!

A little off the mark but our family is going to London for a wedding in April and it was not more expensive to fly into London and out of Paris. It saved us the return train fare. United also had children’s fares which were slightly cheaper than adult fares to my astonishment. If you go, consider VRBO for an apartment. We love having a fridge and washer/dryer. Lastly, I heard great things about 2 tourist passes – London Pass (entrance fees and/ or transport) and Batobus (transport using the Seine).

I can’t wait to see your Project Life Designs in action!

12 Days of Christmas: Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of our 12 Days of Christmas event! Finally, the weather outside is (more or less) frightful! I say . . . let it snow, let it snow, let it snow! It’s the perfect tone for today’s post–a very wintery mood, I must say. What should we start with first? I say […]

ugg, you HAD to put that one on sale, didn’t you? ;-) I’ve had my eye on that for awhile. Thanks for feeding my digital addiction. I have not decided whether I’m doing a tray or not, but I love the wintery images so I’m sure I’ll figure out something.

Natalie (QSOgirl) - December 11, 2012 - 6:29 am

Wow,amazing ideas. Love the placecards. I’m new to the Silhouette but have already purchased the Christmas Countdown. I’m a little intimidated but I am going to try it!

{dawn} howells - November 13, 2012 - 9:41 am

Another super cute project by Shari! And, I like that it relatively simple, and do-able along with all the other holiday preparations! Love it!

Rhadonda - November 13, 2012 - 11:03 am

Always great projects. Loved the flashback. Wow some people get fancy for the holiday, cool! Still working on downloading my files i just got. I guess my PC will not let me do the batch change for DXF so i am doing them one at a time into a studio file and then it will let me move them over into my library. It is all worth it ( :

Kerri - November 13, 2012 - 11:18 am

Hey Rhodonda!
Make sure you’ve updated to the most recent version of Studio. There were a couple of versions where it wasn’t working, but all should be well now! :)

cindy - November 13, 2012 - 4:52 pm

Darn………I meant to order that and forgot! Oh well, maybe later.

a couple very chilling cards

The ‘Queen of Cards’ is at it again with something very thrillering (yeah, it’s a word)  for Halloween!There’s no escaping their fabulousness.They just send chills up+down my spine.This mortal just can’t resist them.(I think my continual listening of Thriller has affected my thoughts today.) I do love ‘em so . . . truly. [ Shapes […]

Shari love your cards! Great designs Kerri!

create. print. trim. save.

We’re always looking for quick cards, eh?Something that you can keep on hand and whip up when you need to send a note? You know that the KBS shapes are good for cutting. But did you really ever think about using them digitally? Check out this card from our little  Miss Shari. [ Shapes | Best […]

Shari, what a beautiful card! Kerri – thanks for the freebies!

Ruth G - June 4, 2012 - 6:37 pm

Awesome! I love how the foreground and background are not lined up and each layer is at a different height! The colors are wonderful, too! Great job, Shari and Kerri!!!

Cindy - June 5, 2012 - 5:23 am

Love the freebies and I am totally loving this class! You have done a great job and I so love how your enthusiasm just pours out! You sound like me!!! LOL

Sue Alg - June 5, 2012 - 9:30 am

Like the first 2 classes, this Design Class is terrific. Although I’ve been using Designer Edition for about 5 months, you always provide me with info that I didn’t know. Thanks to Shari for showing us another way to use our freebies–so neat!

Nancy Barnes - June 5, 2012 - 9:44 am

Oh, Kerri! you’re killing me, girl! I don’t have a Silhouette so I didn’t sign up for this class. I LOVE these designs! Any chance we’ll see them in the shop sometime? (please!)

Janet Swanlady21 - August 5, 2012 - 4:56 am

This is stunning!A beauty indeed. So bright and cheerful too.

accentuate the positive…and negative.

The Queen of Cards is here again! Look at these fabulous cards she made!Loooove the positive- and negative-space way she made these!   [ Shapes | Happy (title) / This+That: Summertime (butterfly)] Shari printed these–including the aqua patterned background paper–and then ran them through her Silhouette to cut out the butterflies. I love how she used […]

Nothing negative about these projects! A++++++++! TFS! And, I love that I’m not the only one who makes test cuts. It takes a bit of time, but is so worth it not to ruin the good paper!

Caroline D - May 8, 2012 - 11:16 am

That’s awesome. What an innovative idea!

Sue Alg - May 8, 2012 - 2:22 pm

This card is fabulous. I was just wondering how you printed “white”. My laser printer won’t print white

Kerri - May 8, 2012 - 2:40 pm

Hey Sue! It’s not actually something that ‘prints white’. It’s just when you layer something that’s white on top of something that’s colored, your printer sees that as ‘no color’…and ‘prints’ it as white. When all is said and done, it’s essentially not printing any color at all where it’s white. So on this card, Shari created that aqua background–probably in PS/PSE–and layered the phrase in white on top of it.

Does that make sense?

Sue Alg - May 9, 2012 - 1:18 pm

Kerri, I actually had a “lightbulb” moment after I commented. I needed to print on a dark background- duh!! I actually created my entire document in Silhouette studio software. I bought in one of my many digital papers, added text, etc. I really like this card and created several.

Cassie - May 10, 2012 - 6:04 pm

this is really cool, but I really need a video on how she did this.

Sandra K. - May 12, 2012 - 2:54 pm

The queen of cards she is!!! Wow!! What a beautiful cards. Great use of negative space. Love it all.

Sandra :)
