Kerri-I tried several times tonight to sign up for your Nov 4 class…but the site will not redirect me to Paypal! It gets stuck at that point.

Can you help out? Looking forward to your new class…took the first 2 through JS and learned a lot!!!

Sandy Evans - October 29, 2013 - 10:24 pm

So sad I am out of town during the class. Signed up for it, looking forward to doing it (and the other one I haven ‘t been able to do, design secrets when I get home on the. 4th if Nov

Hey Sue! Not sure what would be happening, but maybe try a different browser. And if that works, let me know what browser didn’t. :)

Lynette - October 30, 2013 - 1:11 pm

I just couldn’t wait any longer to sign up, so now I’m counting down to the start date! I have a sister on a mission, and I’m trying to send a handmade card to her every week. Partly to keep her mail coming, but to help develop some mad card making skills. I’m using pinterest for examples and ideas, but I can’t wait to learn all you have. I’m excited for the envelopes too! How fun!!!

we’re off to see the wizard!

Jordan and I are headed to Florida today to help Lisa with HSN and then to have a little fun seeing some of the sunny sights that Florida has to offer. Our number one place to go? Harry Potter World. We’ve been to Disneyland many times, so Disney World will be fun, but seeing the […]

I love the Harry Potter World! I was there last December, and I’ve wanted to go back ever since. The frozen butterbeer is the best! I hope you have a great time!

Sue Alg - October 22, 2013 - 11:19 am

Can’t wait to hear about your adventure. My hubby and I are taking are 2 13 granddaughters to see Harry Potter World in early December. Can’t wait.

Trish - October 22, 2013 - 3:29 pm

Have a wonderful time and tell the wizard I said “Hey”.

Lisa Haines - October 22, 2013 - 6:24 pm

Have a very safe and fun trip!! Disney is always fun and going to HSN would be a blast too ! Either way, sounds like a fun packed getaway!! ENJOY!!

Sophia Allison - October 23, 2013 - 12:04 pm

Just saw yiur “Jingle All the Way” on HSN! So cute!

it’s the end of an era.

I received this in the mail yesterday. The final chapter of an iconic magazine. A magazine that was a staple in so many homes in this world. It’s funny how times change. You never think they will. But with this time of instant access via the internet, I can see how certain magazines can have […]

I love paper! Computers and I have a pretty good relationship, but my heart belongs to paper. I will cherish these last moments with the paper Creating Keepsakes. Then I will say goodbye to whatever comes next since it doesn’t serve my needs to have digital publications. I’m thankful for all the hard work and inspiration that has been provided in the past! It was very good while it lasted.

Lisa Bearnson - October 9, 2013 - 12:36 pm

Oh the memories! Thanks for taking us down memory lane!

Brenda - October 9, 2013 - 1:04 pm

I have loved Creating Keepsakes for years (and Simple Scrapbooks, sigh) and was so sad to see them make this change. I understand why but since I hate reading books/magazines on a screen it made me sad. I am cherishing my last couple of issues (as small as they were) but have now cancelled my subscription and won’t be following them on this journey. I love your scenes and may have a page or 2 that’s similar in my albums. :)

Dawn N - October 9, 2013 - 1:56 pm

I didn’t realize this was their official last issue – :(
I love my CK magazine – it has gotten me through many a waiting rooms, and long distance drives and plane trips. (I still have every issues I received (not from the beginning – I am late to this party)). But for the past 5 years-or-so, they are all dog-eared and flagged, stored in my craft room & and I can not bear to depart with them.

I agree – what’s next?

Nashonne - October 10, 2013 - 7:23 am

It will be missed….I have to go out and get this last one.

Renee G - October 10, 2013 - 6:40 pm

Loved this magazine, sorry to see it go. I have a copy of the first issue that they published.

Pam Talluto - November 20, 2013 - 2:39 pm

Hi Kerri! I’m just going through your blog archives as I hope to buy a Silhouette soon. I had to comment on this post. I remember fondly those Creating Keepsake days complete with my trips to Utah and getting to spend time with you, as well as our great PCDT days!!! Anyway, I just wanted to drop in and say “hi” and tell you how much I love what you’re doing :)

because i just can’t do enough creating

In the LDS church we are asked to serve within different roles to help out. So for the past three years I have been serving in the Primary as the secretary. Lots of  ’secretarial’ type work in the organization that works with the children ages 3-11. Loved doing that. The children are amazing and doing secretary […]

You’ll do GREAT at this calling! I know that for me Pinterest is 50/50. Fifty percent of the time it’s a great thing, and 50% of the time it stresses me out. There are just too many options out there!


Kerri - October 8, 2013 - 9:28 pm

Thanks Joanna! :)

my social media journey

I know you’ve been dying to hear this (ha ha). I can remember with each step that I’ve taken into the social media world that it was a big decision. I’ve never been one to be ‘first’ with anything. I’m much more methodical and watch and think and wonder . . . is it for […]

That photo belongs on Instagram, not Facebook! Really, does anyone look at Facebook anymore? Even my teenagers have given up on it. Try using Instagram–much nicer. No political opinions, no junk, just lovely photos.

a little something for sunday

I just watched this video and found it utterly fascinating. The sheer talent and work that went into the making of all this. Plus, it was for John Mayer? All the more better. Yes, I’m a fan. :) And I love how he shares how he knows what he wants for his album cover, but […]
