studio calico blog hop

Welcome! I’m so excited for the Studio Calico blog hop today!
It’s a BIG day! Lots of goodies to share!

As you may or may not know (depending on if you’re new here ;) ), I am a huuuge Silhouette fan! Digital cutting in general is just an ever-so dreamy way to scrap for me. I could live scrap on cardstock and Silhouette alone.

And now, Studio Calico + Susan Weinroth have a brand new Silhouette class called Cut It Out

The teachers in this class are phenomenal!
Even our very own creative team members Nichol Magouirk and Robyn Werlich can be found there!
Oh, and the ever-so delightful Jen Gallacher too!
The list goes on and on, really.

Their objective? To help you make Silhouette an integral part of your crafting goodness.

And I’m alllll for that!

And just when you think it couldn’t get any better,
did you see the class kit???

Here’s a little bit about the class:

It’s time to CUT IT OUT. You already know that your Silhouette is a pretty amazing machine, and Susan Weinroth wants to help you put it to work on your pages and cards. In this self paced class, we’ll be exploring a handful of basic techniques and fun cutting materials, but the real focus of the class is helping you make your Silhouette an integral part of your projects. Susan is joined by a talented group of contributors (Ali Edwards, Nichol Magourik, Lisa Dickinson, Jen Gallacher, Lexi Bridges, Robyn Werlich, Becky Novacek, Sasha Farina, Rebecca Trump, Shanna Noel, Julie Campbell, Lilith Eeckels, and Nicole Harper) and they will be showing you step by step just how they make using their Silhouette a part of their design process. The PDFs will contain 20 layouts, 3 cards, and a countless number of tips that will leave you inspired and ready to CUT IT OUT on your next project!

This class is sponsored by Silhouette America, and every student will receive a $10 download card to the Silhouette Online Store. We’ve also put together a collection of cool exclusive cuts from Studio Calico, Ali Edwards, and Kerri Bradford Studio and a printable PDF of journaling cards and accents. 

While supplies last, Cut It Out students will also receive a class kit including vellum, American Crafts POW glitter paper, WRMK Washi Paper, Silhouette Sticker paper and an exclusive stamp set. 

Registration for Cut It Out ends on October 31st, and class starts November 1st. 

Oh, and then there’s the icing on the cake . . . the freebies!!!
You can see all of them HERE. And yes, there’s some there from me too!

Wanna see what I made with mine?
(I know, if you’re a fan here, you’re thinking to yourself, ‘She actually did a page??’ ;) )

I used the freebie  flourish and  background that I made for the SC class on this one.
That’s me, keeping it sweet+simple. I told ya I could practically live scrap on cardstock alone.

The title I made in the set of freebies didn’t quite work with the photos I wanted to scrap,
so I decided to do this Friday Freebie today . . .

To download it–forever free–click HERE.

As you can see, I used the word for something more than its ‘true’ meaning.
And that is my very first experience using washi tape. I feel so proud of myself. ;)

And you just know, that on a day like today there’s got to be some of this:

Those fabulous people there at Studio Calico have graciously allowed me to
give away a seat + kit to their new class!!

Oh, happy day!

But wait, there’s more!

I’m giving away a couple of these as well!

 To be entered, just leave your name+where you’re from and tell me what
 your favorite style of shapes are to use
and I will draw the winners on Sunday night!

And now, for all the Studio Calico madness, you must check out all these blogs!
And oh yeah, they are giving away $5 Studio Calico gift cards too!

With the exception of the SC blog–which happens to be giving away one of my gift cards and Susan who is also giving away a seat in the class+a kit!

  13. Rhadonda October 12, 2012 at 7:22 am

    Rhadonda Sterling, IL I love to cut titles. By the way the class kit was gone by October 1, had to get in early on that one. But the class still looks awesome. Hoping to win as i just bought your color class (awesome by the way) and not sure if i can afford another one. Thanks for the generosity.

  14. Dawn Howells October 12, 2012 at 7:24 am

    I love the wordart shapes. I could never have enough!

  16. Cindy October 12, 2012 at 7:33 am

    Hello Kerri……Cindy here from SUNNY Florida (Ocala – horse country, to be exact). My current favorite shapes are anything that is found in nature, but could use some cloud designs. Love all of your designs, especially the phrases and cursive words!

  17. Cristina October 12, 2012 at 7:36 am

    Thank you so much for the file!! I love to use my Silhouette for print and cut, but lately I’ve been loving to use it to cut out words and titles. I’m excited about this class!!
    Cristina from NY

  18. Rhadonda October 12, 2012 at 7:38 am

    I will correct myself. Good news…it appears Studio Calico is trying to get more class kits and they currently are back in stock. Sweet.

  19. jerk October 12, 2012 at 7:39 am

    Really amazing looks !
    This page is terrific.
    I hope to join the class and perform my silhouette

  20. Christine Lauer October 12, 2012 at 7:42 am

    First thank you for the download. Secondly, thank you for making me aware of this class, I just signed up. Thirdly, thank you for the chance to win a spot! I’m really new to Cameo, but I’ve purchaed some of your kits and am experimenting with cutting words out. Chris in Pennsylvania!

  21. Dena October 12, 2012 at 7:48 am

    I’m from Cranesville, PA and I would love a chance to win this! I just got my Silhouette so that i can cut out words.

  25. Cindy Stich October 12, 2012 at 8:03 am

    I’m from Cantrall, IL and if I have to be honest my most used shapes are basic circles & squares. I have found it is easier to cut an entire page of the shapes I need rather than digging out my paper punches. (Especially since I have been whipping up numerous cheerleader gifts prior to every game.)

  26. Nikki October 12, 2012 at 8:05 am

    Thanks for the freebie and the chance to win. :)

    Beth from Noblesville, IN

    I love using my Silhouette for almost everything, but lately I’ve been doing a lot of different borders with it. Always makes a nice little accent on a page or card.

    Thanks, Kerri, for all you do for us!

  71. Audrey V October 12, 2012 at 9:48 am

    I need to be the president of your fan club. I LOVE this layout. I already registered for the Cut it Out class, and I’m currently taking your Just Add Color class. I’ve been pretty busy this year, so I didn’t feel like I really absorbed your first 3 Silouette classes, so I am currently re-watching all of the videos. So this is KBS weekend, woo hoo! My favorite style of shapes are geometric.
    Audrey from Colorado

  72. Ruth G October 12, 2012 at 9:50 am

    I love that you scrapped! So much fun! Awesome graphic background and wonderful title and embellishment! TFS!
    I pretty much adore graphic words/titles to use on layouts!
    I don’t have a Silhouette :*[, but maybe the class could still work for me if there are svg files that I could use???

  73. Kelly M October 12, 2012 at 9:50 am

    I’ve never used a die cutting machine so, I don’t really have a favorite shape. I am really looking forward to being able to cut out some cool looking titles (no more hunting for a set of Thickers with enough e’s). I odered the Cameo bundle too.

  74. Connie O. October 12, 2012 at 9:52 am

    Connie from WA

    I am not sure I have a favorite I tend to go LO buy LO adding whatever it might need….but I am loving titles……Thanks for the chance Kerri!

  75. Cathy October 12, 2012 at 9:56 am

    I am working slowly on getting to know my Cameo, but I love it. I have bought an eclectic bunch of shapes and sentiments, but I know I don’t like anything that’s too elaborate. I recently used the London 2012 shape for my Project Life and it was great fun! Because of Kerri’s first class, I was able to group and ungroup as I saw fit. Even my physics “doctor” was impressed!

  76. Amber October 12, 2012 at 10:06 am

  78. Carolyn E October 12, 2012 at 10:12 am

    Carolyn from Florida.
    I would have to say titles right now. I’ve just scrapped my first page in almost 2 years the other day and used my Silhouette! I’ve had it for a couple of years, but since getting pregnant, having the baby and now, chasing after toddler, I haven’t had the motivation to use it to it’s potential! Hoping to get back to creating!

  79. Charlene October 12, 2012 at 10:14 am

    I am in Winnipeg, Canada. As for shapes, I love those squares/rectangles with the blocky text in it!

  80. Annette Abrahamson October 12, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Hi-ya, Annette here from Seattle, WA….and as far as shapes go, i’m all about the words and phrases! love ’em!

  81. Nancy Barnes October 12, 2012 at 10:16 am

    Phoenix, AZ – I love simple shapes with a little bit of fun thrown in – like a star with a flourish either cut out or trailing from one of the points. Oh, that’s it! Simple with a bit of drama for good measure!!

  82. Deb L October 12, 2012 at 10:18 am

    So excited you’re a part of this class! The sneaks are amazing, and I’m waiting on pins & needles for the first day of class!

  88. Karen N. October 12, 2012 at 10:33 am

    Elyria, Ohio here…the class looks and sounds wonderful. Use my Cameo for borders, titles and creating my own accent embellishments.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  226. jamie October 13, 2012 at 4:51 pm

    Hello Kerrie…
    Thank you for the freebie…wanted to ask…sort of new to my cameo here, and i downloaded the studio file, but i opens as a gold and bold image in Silhouette. There is not a red outline. And it will not let me trace. I also tried the pgn. But it is all ‘dissected’ when i trace it for a cutting file. It will not allow me to make a compound path. What am I doing wrong?
