    I just need more practice making custom things (lol, the title of your class).

  3. Lynn Mercurio May 6, 2015 at 7:22 am

    I’ve already signed up for the class, but would love to win it! I’d really like to investigate how to get more out of this machine and possibly find the answers to some of the problems I have with my Cameo.

  4. Jeanne B May 6, 2015 at 7:24 am

    I want to learn how to make custom backgrounds for my scrapbooking layouts. I love all the ones I see on the web and pinterest and want to try it.

  5. Julie Cope May 6, 2015 at 7:24 am

    I would like to know how to make more custom titles, how to use the print and cut feature better, and how to get more creative with making my own things.

  6. Debbie J. :) May 6, 2015 at 7:55 am

    I would love to know more about the print and cut feature.

  7. Lisa Posthumus May 6, 2015 at 7:57 am

    I use a lot of backgrounds on my layouts so anything along that line would be appreciated.

  10. Nicky H May 6, 2015 at 8:19 am

    i am a newbie & signed up for the newbie class. I’d like to know how to make custom things (using Photoshop, I assume) which I am familiar with. :)

  11. Lara Read May 6, 2015 at 8:23 am

    I’ve been trying to figure out after you put text on a shape, is there a way to convert it to a path so it is no longer treated like text but like a shape so i can resize the whole image without the text moving around the shape. Hope that make sense.

  12. Carla S May 6, 2015 at 8:29 am

    I want to learn anything about the Silhouette because I haven’t even started using it yet.

  13. Leslee Barrow May 6, 2015 at 8:38 am

    I need practice with start to finish! I have bought some of your items , but can’t get them to show up in on my Silhouette! Maybe my computer is too slow! And yes, I do have DE. Maybe I am just too old to figure it all out!

  14. Kathy Kohner May 6, 2015 at 9:24 am

    There are so many things that I need to learn about. I still haven’t had the courage to update to the newest version. I am still in version 2. I know there are a lot of upgrades but I am so comfortable with the legacy edition but I think it’s time to move forward.

  15. Michelle May 6, 2015 at 9:28 am

    I really like your classes, Kerri!

  16. Karen May 6, 2015 at 9:29 am

  19. Kendra May 6, 2015 at 9:40 am

    So many things I don’t understand about the Silhouette software. I’d really like to learn to make my own hot keys so I could set it up like Photoshop. Does it do that?

  20. MJ May 6, 2015 at 9:43 am

    I would love to be able to take this class…no $$ but winning would be a bonus! Thanks for the opportunity.

  21. Vanessa Miles May 6, 2015 at 9:45 am

    Have already signed up but would love to give the class to a friend who is entering the world of Silhouette.

  22. Hilary Ford May 6, 2015 at 9:46 am

    Silhouette + Kerri Bradford class – perfect! Love your classes, there is always so much packed into them, and I get so much more out of my Silhouette as a result. :)

  23. Lycia May 6, 2015 at 9:46 am

    I want to know more about the technical aspects of the Designer Software. For instance, I’m still not completely sure what a Compound Path is!!!

  24. Sally May 6, 2015 at 9:48 am

    I have taken all of your classes and I have learned so much but I would love to learn more about typography to make beautiful titles and elements. You have a knack for knowing what works well together and making it look amazing. Thanks Kerri!

  25. rebecca May 6, 2015 at 9:49 am

    I would love to learn about how to create my own designs.

  26. Margot Perry May 6, 2015 at 9:52 am

    I do primarily hybrid scrapbooking and work with pocket pages. I love all of your new 3×4, especially your hello november and december card designs. I would love to learn more about layering them to achieve different looks using the same base or background. I also love how you mix and match fonts and other elements. Okay, Im pretty much open to anything new you are willing to teach me! :)

  27. Michelle May 6, 2015 at 10:05 am

  33. Sue Alg May 6, 2015 at 11:02 am

    Sure am glad you reminded me about this class. I use my Silhouette almost everyday–love it for creating PL embellishments and pocket cards. I definitely need this class because I’m always try to create something unique. I hear so much about the PixScan and just not sure if that’s something for me.

  34. LaurieW May 6, 2015 at 11:05 am

    I would love to learn the skills to begin to design my own things!

  35. Debbie D May 6, 2015 at 11:07 am

  47. Linda Richmond May 6, 2015 at 1:36 pm

    I want to learn to better create multi colored titles.

  48. LinhC May 6, 2015 at 2:08 pm

    Maybe a class (or a kick in the pants) on how to get back into scrapbooking and specifically, using the Silhouette to make things? My machine is getting very dusty.

  52. Amy May 6, 2015 at 2:52 pm

    I would lover a spot in the class!

  53. Audrey May 6, 2015 at 2:59 pm

    I am currently working my way through one of your wonderful classes. After that I need to concentrate on making fancy titles. I have managed to make titles such as outlined words welded to sunglasses but it takes me forever and I am never sure what I have done to make it work!!!! Given that I own a very old Craft Robo CC200 that has been around for over 8 years (but use the DE Studio software) its a wonder I can get anything to work …..

  54. B Martin May 6, 2015 at 3:00 pm

    To cut small detailed items cleanly and use of sketch pens. Thanks!

  55. Lois May 6, 2015 at 3:09 pm

  56. Betsy May 6, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    Kerri, I love your classes and have taken most (if not all!) of them. Unfortunately, I do not do Facebook, but I hate to be left out of the drawing!
    I’d like to get a better idea about compound path and release compound path as I feel I don’t really understand it or when to use.

  57. Jenell May 6, 2015 at 3:38 pm

    Great opportunity, Kerri. I think I need practice on turning png files into cut files and maybe learning more about the work area and tools/buttons.

  58. Karen May 6, 2015 at 3:56 pm

    I’ve loved all the classes I’ve taken and would love the chance to take the custom class!!

  59. Andrea May 6, 2015 at 4:08 pm

  62. Lois Patton May 6, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    I’d like to know the easiest way to move ALL the files from my Sil library (including original designs plus other files from outside designers) from my old pc laptop to my new Macbook.

  63. Judy Parma May 6, 2015 at 4:55 pm

    I upgraded to the new software and had so much trouble that I
    downgraded back.(I’m sure it was operator error) I don’t have the Cameo just the SD. I have already signed up for the class and am really looking forward to it. Winning a spot would just be an awesome bonus. Thanks Kerri!

  64. Megan Kapma May 6, 2015 at 4:57 pm

    I want to know how to use the Modify tool.

  67. Cathy May 6, 2015 at 6:10 pm

    I haven’t had a lot of time to scrapbook or play with my silhouette lately. This class would be great to get back into the silhouette. Thanks for the opportunity.

  68. Kathy H May 6, 2015 at 6:42 pm

    I still consider myself quite ‘green’ when it comes to customizing anything beyond pretty basic stuff. I’d love to learn to get to the next level!

  71. Melissa S May 6, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    Would love to win a spot in this class. I’m so excited about it, I already signed up! I find I learn so much from your classes. Everything you do is so amazing. I wish I had an ounce of your creativity. Can’t wait to see what you have in store for us :)

  78. Leslie b. May 6, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    I am really interested in learning how to manipulate files or customize them specifically to the project I’m working on to make them more my own. I have signed up for this class but would love to win it!!

  79. Tara Mayol May 6, 2015 at 11:34 pm

  80. Kim P. May 7, 2015 at 5:14 am

  81. mary lewis May 7, 2015 at 5:52 am

    I am a newbie so any instructions, tips, or hints are valuable to me. I am interested in the print and cut option.

  82. Natalie (QSOgirl) May 7, 2015 at 6:39 am

    Looks like a great class!! I know you always have amazing tips to share about using the software. I always get a bit mixed up when editing points on a design, so I’d love to learn more about how to do that more effectively.

  83. Kelly Humby-Tulk May 7, 2015 at 7:56 am

    I would like to learn how to use the sketch pens more. I have lots of them, but barely use them.

  84. Gwen Lords May 7, 2015 at 7:56 am

    I haven’t upgraded to version 3 yet, due to so many problems when it first came out. I am so comfortable with the Legacy version for what I do, I guess I would like to try the version 3 and learn more about it. I use my Silhouette almost everyday!

  85. Debbie Birch May 7, 2015 at 7:58 am

    Love your classes!! I just need to learn more about what my silhouette can do!!!

  86. Carla Ashfield May 7, 2015 at 8:32 am

    This will be an awesome addition to your other classes!!!!

  87. Tammy May 7, 2015 at 9:24 am

    I need all the help I can get. I just got my first Silhouette Cameo (Mother’s Day gift). It is a bit intimidating.

  88. marileew May 8, 2015 at 4:45 pm

    Love your classes; thanks for an opportunity to win a free class. I’d like to know more about drawing custom shapes. I seem to have a lot of trouble trying to draw freehand shapes. Thanks!

  89. Kathy May 8, 2015 at 8:09 pm

    Is everything recorded? I would love to take the class but will be out if town the week of May 18! Can I watch everything when I return?

    • Kerri May 8, 2015 at 8:15 pm

      Yep. It’s all ‘self-paced’, so while it has a kind of ‘live’ feel during the initial release, it’s available to watch at any time…forever and ever. :)
