the ‘educationish’ kit

So the problem with doing something like this kit is that I usually have more ideas in my head than should fit into a $5 kit. ;) I think I may need to make a follow-up.


Like I said before, I like to make things that can be used for more than just one particular theme, so any of these–besides the “school is back in session” can be used for anything! For example, while the “this is” text can be used in conjunction with the “school” title, it can also be used when your husband is about to do his death-defying jump of the 20′ cliff into the water, or when your child has just smeared his pudding all over the floor . . . just a fun accent to add to any project, really.The rulers can be used as Print & Cuts with Silhouette, however, it’s not something you can use on other cutters as a Print & Cut. But, they are simple in design so the JPG/PNG can be printed and easily cut by hand, so all is well. :)So I thought I’d try something new just to show you how versatile the kits are. Not only can you use them for diecuts, but you can use them to create a digital page like this:

I used a distressed blue background from Jessica Sprague’s Echoes of Asia–can’t remember where I picked that up from. But then I chose a shade of blue and colored the alphabet background to make it look like all one “piece of paper.”

The “School” title, ruler and apple all come from this kit as well. The August Twenty Ten comes from the Twenty10 kit. The “happy” definition and the flourishes come from House of 3–the flourishes come from the Vitamin B kit . . . and I erased the little bike riders too.

Okay, so that was actually a lot of fun to make!

Now for the contest! I appreciate all of your efforts to reach 200 Followers. It’s fun to see it grow. I know that many of you “follow” the blog without actually “following” too  . . . and that’s okay . . . I do the same thing. ;)

I just also wanted to say how much I appreciate all of your comments and support over this new venture! I thought it was funny that Amy13 said, “I’m so grateful that us contra-banders (Cricut) can now take advantage of your uber talent…cause I’ve about worn out my Graphically Speaking cart.” Thanks for that comment Amy. I feel like I’ve now become an “equal opportunity digital shape maker.” That makes me happy. :)

So the three winners are:

    Hi Kerri! I love your work!! And I was hoping you would add the share buttons to your posts so that I can tweet them easily on FB, Twitter etc. It's easy to add, when you are in the Design tab, you click on edit in the Blog Post section. It opens up a small window and you will see the option to show the share buttons :) *hugs from conroe, tx!

  7. Nancy W August 18, 2010 at 10:02 pm

    P.S. If you want to take a peek at my blog to see what the buttons look like they are at the bottom of each post :)

  8. Kerri August 18, 2010 at 10:14 pm

    Hey Nancy! I just added the Share buttons per your request…but I'm guessing they won't show up in previous posts? I just still haven't ventured too far into the outside viral world yet. I was thinking about the Tweet thing today though….just thinking….;)

    Thanks for the tip! And your blog is lovely!

    Miss Kerri, you are the cleverest of clever :-)

    Susy, I feel compelled to make a Dr. Seuss rhyme to reply with, but my thoughts aren't too thoughtful so early in the morning. ;)

    Thanks for your sweet comment…and for everyone's comments!
