    Sheila Holzhuter is a great friend because when we get together for crops, which is only a few times a year, she stays up with me and we are always the last ones up. We live 5 hours apart so we really treasure our time together. We come up with some creative ideas though!!

  5. kelly December 4, 2015 at 6:40 am

    Susanna is an amazing friend! She came over and helped me decorate my house. I am so thankful for her :)

  6. Connie December 4, 2015 at 6:42 am

    Carla Demoulin not only is she my best friend, we share a grandson and a great neighbor she is always ready to crop and try all the “crafty” projects I see online.

  7. CarlajinAR December 4, 2015 at 6:43 am

    I would like to give this to my Sister in Law, Sharmin, who I also consider a dear friend.

  8. Irmak Ipek December 4, 2015 at 6:44 am

    Thank you for the chance to win lots of goodies from your site :) My driend Didem is a great one because she is always there when I need her, besides she shares my enthusiasm for craft projects and participates as much as she can, contributing with ideas and a helping hand. :)

  9. Ingrid D December 4, 2015 at 6:51 am

    Bring it on Santa……… Love you Kerri…..Julia Simmons NEEDS to get to know you

  10. TinaGale December 4, 2015 at 7:01 am

    Thanks for the great file! I’m tagging my friend Ann. She’s helped me before I even got my silhouette and is a great crop partner. I just wished we lived closer.

  11. Jean Marmo December 4, 2015 at 7:05 am

    Thank you for this wonderful opportunity! My friend is my daughter. She was married just over a year ago and lives way far away.I was just there over Thanksgiving and we had fun doing projects together. She has a new home and needs to fill it with more crafting goodies.

  12. Julie McMillin December 4, 2015 at 7:05 am

    I have to say my daughter – what makes her amazing? She’s kind, loyal, loving and brave. She’s my little girl who has become a woman I admire so much. I’m so lucky to have my daughter as one of my best friends.

  13. Margot Perry December 4, 2015 at 7:10 am

    I like forward to your 12 Days of Christmas every year! I’m tagging my friend Kris Beauregard because she adores you as much as I do. Thanks!

  14. SusanP December 4, 2015 at 7:13 am

    My son, David, is one of the most awesome people I know. He has faced many obstacles and overcome them (with God’s help). He recently bought a Silhouette Cameo to make decals for bicycles using vinyl. He works in a high end bike shop, so has many contacts for clients. It’s so fun to share all things Cameo with him!

  15. Kathleen D December 4, 2015 at 7:17 am

    I have so many friends who amaze me that it’s hard to just pick one. But for this I’ll pick my friend Laurie M. She shares so many of my loves such as scrapbooking, watercoloring, lettering and any new craft thing that comes my way. It would be awesome for her to win!

  16. Pam A December 4, 2015 at 7:27 am

    Thanks for the cute freebies! I’d like to give a gift card to Lizzie Crippen because she’s fairly new to her Cameo, and I want to introduce her to your great stuff! She’s dealing with a sad personal matter and I don’t live close enough to cheer her up. I’d love to make her Christmas a little brighter.

  17. Arianna Barbara December 4, 2015 at 7:28 am

    Anna Rita is a beautiful person. We share the same passion for scrapbooking and plannering. She’s opening a YT channel and a personal blog where to share what she’s able to do and I think it’s great!!! Thank you for this amazing chance! Having fingers crossed!

  18. Dawn Elaine Howells December 4, 2015 at 7:29 am

    My name is Dawn Elaine Howells, and my friend is my daughter, Ashley Bellis! Among her MANY attributes (I’m her mom – what can I say??)which make her AMAZING are her love of everything crafty, her devotion to her little family, and her love of the lord! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

  19. Sally December 4, 2015 at 7:41 am

    I love the file today! I’m tagging Amber since she is my sister and she can always make me laugh. She loves to create almost as much as I do. Thanks, Kerri!

  20. Nashonne Newman December 4, 2015 at 7:51 am

    My friend Latosha Cherry is a great friend. She kind, generous, and will do all she can to help and support others.

  21. Marilyn Bronson December 4, 2015 at 7:55 am

    Hey Kerri, it is Marilyn Bronson here and my friends name is Karen Erbe. We have been friends since the early 70’s. She is truly my bestie and is amazing because without her we would not be parents. We could not have children and Karen stepped in and had her Mother intervene with a woman in their town who took in pregnant teens and helped to get the babies adopted. That is where our amazing Son came from and there is nothing more amazing that that!!

  22. Loyden December 4, 2015 at 8:01 am

    My friend Mel Hay — A “southern belle” with a genuine kindness ..and a real sassy streak!

  23. LaurieM December 4, 2015 at 8:05 am

    Super fun giveaway! Thank you! I have a friend, Kathleen D, who is always inspiring me to do things that make my heart happy and bring me joy. The crazy thing is that I have never met her in person, yet she fills my daily life with positive energy and uplifting thoughts. She’s a keeper!

  24. justasiam December 4, 2015 at 8:08 am

    My name is Bernice and I want to acknowledge my daughter Alana who, at 26, is fighting cervical cancer. My heart hurts for her.

  25. Clara_Croft December 4, 2015 at 8:10 am

    My friend Viny and I like to attend together scrap workshops. Thank you for this giveaway and for the daily free designs

  26. Mary Shaver December 4, 2015 at 8:18 am

    Thank you so much for the Christmas freebies. That is very generous. I love your silhouette classes, I have learned so much. It is amazing how much the knowledge I have gained through your classes on the silhouette program are transferable to other art programs, like the embroidery machine software.

    Suzi is my fellow scrapbooker and card maker, she would be tickled pink to receive a gift of designs or classes from your site.

    Thank you for all you do and the opportunity to win.


  27. Melanie A. December 4, 2015 at 8:41 am

    Love this one! Thanks for the giveaway! I would give the gift certificate to Julie Cutaia!

  28. Ashley C December 4, 2015 at 8:46 am

    Ashley C; Leah Hanson is my friend, and she is so amazing because she is crafty and smart and loving to all.

  29. Kimberly Goon December 4, 2015 at 8:53 am

    I LOVE the 12 days of Christmas you do every year! Too many friends to consider…but I’d have to say my sister Krissy Terry would love this gift card!

  30. Nicole Davis December 4, 2015 at 9:22 am

    Thanks for all the gorgeous files! My friend Latosha Cherry is always there for anyone who needs her!

  32. Betsy December 4, 2015 at 9:30 am

    The word tree is great! Thank you.

    This week when I watched Blood and Oil I couldn’t concentrate because I kept looking at the sets your husband created! Great job.

    • Kerri December 4, 2015 at 9:47 am

      Ha ha! He does the same thing. :)

  33. Shelly December 4, 2015 at 9:31 am

    Awesome freebies ! My friend Mary Beth is the best !! We’ve been friends since we were 4:)

  34. Trisha F December 4, 2015 at 10:00 am

    I love how you primted that in gold foil! Katrina is a great friend who has more talent than me!

  35. Kendra December 4, 2015 at 10:19 am

    Kathleen is so amazing because she is always learning. She is enthusiastic and fun! Her only flaw is living all the way across the country!

  36. Pam K December 4, 2015 at 10:29 am

    Thank you for today’s lovely freebie — I love your example with the gold!

  37. nerdgrl (Kim S) December 4, 2015 at 10:30 am

    Love all the ideas. Would love to win for me and my SBing BFF, Lora. She does so much for our group, Scrap Princesses.

  38. Melissa December 4, 2015 at 10:33 am

    Thank you for sharing freebies! I’m excited to use them in my DD album. I’m thankful for my pen pal Jenny who has become a dear friend. Someone I can always turn to!

  39. Debbie D December 4, 2015 at 10:44 am

    Thank you for all the great freebies! I would love to give a gift to my daughter in law, Nico. After having a baby last Jan, she is just starting to get back in her crafting swing and this would be a perfect gift!

  40. LindaH December 4, 2015 at 10:47 am

    Thanks for the great files! Even though we’re separated by miles, my sister, Kathleen, and I have a common bond when it comes to crafts and creating. We are kindred spirits who share ideas and projects–and maybe a little enabling when there’s a great sale or new products :)

  41. Marla December 4, 2015 at 10:51 am

    Beautiful card!! Love the file and your use of the foil!! I may do a few of my cards like this. Thank you so much!!

  42. Cathy Holden December 4, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Kathy S. So creative

  43. Judy R December 4, 2015 at 11:13 am

    Tagging my friend, Diane Carter. She is just about as craft-obsessed as I am!

  44. Carla Hundley December 4, 2015 at 11:15 am

    Loving all the free
    files, thank you.
    My sister, Dena Hoff,
    is a wonderful person
    and she likes to craft
    like I do!
    Carla from Utah

  45. Yvonne December 4, 2015 at 11:30 am

    Woohoo!!! Great opportunity Kerri! Nicole Stine…you can come along for the ride too! :) She’s amazing! She’s raising two spunky little boys while creating a wonderful Godly household with her husband. Great family! :)

  46. Karen S December 4, 2015 at 11:40 am

    What a great opportunity! I would share this gift with my friend Lynda that I’ve reconnected with through crafting! She recently bought a silhouette cameo and I’ve introduced her to your site with all it’s goodness. She could benefit from your classes and I know she loves your this-n-that kits.

  47. Lisa December 4, 2015 at 12:20 pm

    woohoo!! Thanks for the opportunity. My sister Cindy is my BFF, she is the only one who totally gets me, lol. When we get to scrap and craft together, which is nearly not often enough in my opinion, it is such joy.

  48. Megan B December 4, 2015 at 12:39 pm

    My friend Brook loves me for who I am…. good and bad. We both enjoy lots of the same things and her hubby bought her a cemeo last year for her bday. We’ve both been making such neat things with it. So much fun!

  49. Monique van Duren December 4, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    Hi Kerri!,

    I just love your twelve days of christmas. Such beautiful freebies and I love the past posts. The tag with the reindeer is totally cute! Thank you very much for your generosity.

    I would love to tag my sister Patricia. I love her very much and we love to scrap together or make cards together. We are from the Netherlands :o)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  50. Tammy Davis December 4, 2015 at 12:56 pm

    Thank you so much for these free gifts! Love your word art! I would share my good fortune with my sweet daughter-in-law, Mary Davis. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  51. Beth M December 4, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    Thanks for offering this great giveaway. I would love to share this with my friend Scott. He is so crafty and always supporting me in my endeavors.

  52. Candi December 4, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    Thank you Kerri for all you have taught me and showed me. I think you are the. Best.

    If I get lucky and win, I will give the gift card to my friend Lynn Hull. She is a wonderful potter and outstanding instructor. I am lucky to work with her. She received a Sillhouette for her birthday a few months ago and is intimidated by anything computer savvy, that she hasn’t even opened her box yet. She has so many ideas to use it for if she could just get over her fear. She does’t have funds to take any classes, so I think she could learn from you if a chance comes along

  53. lynne December 4, 2015 at 1:51 pm

    Thanks for the lovely tree file!

  54. Melanie L. December 4, 2015 at 1:54 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway, Kerry! I’m tagging my sister Cynthia, because she is my sister and I love her, and because she is seriously craftier than I am! :)

  55. Charlene December 4, 2015 at 2:28 pm

    Thanks for the giveaways! I would love to share with my scrapping friend, Jan. She always inspires me with her creativity.

  56. CAndy December 4, 2015 at 2:35 pm

    VC-24-1YD-PPP-GLD 24 inch x 1 yd Polished Chrome – Gold
    Is this the vinyl from Sign Warehouse?

  57. Kirsten December 4, 2015 at 2:54 pm

    My friend Shannon – my sister in law in fact – is awesome because she “converted” to scrapbooking when I introduced her and makes the bested scrapbooking buddy (and cooking buddy, and shopping buddy, and hiking buddy) ever! And, she gave me the sweetest nephew and niece too :)

  58. mary lewis December 4, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    Chloe is amazing because she is always there in good and bad times. Her love and support are unwavering and much appreciated.

  59. Debbie susee December 4, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    Debbie Susee
    Nominating my sister, Susie Dorsey. She introduced me to the Silhouette and Kerri Bradford classes.

  60. Cindy December 4, 2015 at 3:06 pm

    I would share with the one who started me scrapbooking, my sister Lori. We use to go every year to Scrapfest at the MOA and crops at the scrapbook store she worked at, but alas they no longer have either anymore! But she now has a little one who she can document for! She shared with me way back and I want to do the same now for her.

  61. Lynette Ballard December 4, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    I would totally give the other gift card to my sister in law who got a portrait last year. I think she would love some of your shapes, but I think the classes would be nice for her! Portuguese is her first language, so having the videos and being able to replay them would probably really help her understand! She is amazing because of all the things she’s been willing to try and learn after moving to the U.S.

  62. Vicki Doyle December 4, 2015 at 3:49 pm

    Thank you so much for the freebie. I love the Christmas tree! I would give the gift certificate to my dear friend Jeanine. She gives so much to others and she totally deserves a gift certificate! She is kind, thoughtful and very generous with her time.

  63. Carolyn E December 4, 2015 at 3:52 pm

    I would give the gift card to my wonderful friend Robyn Ondish, who’s an amazing crafty mom that definitely needs to take some time for herself, with everything she’s been dealing with!!

  64. Barbara December 4, 2015 at 4:29 pm

    I would give the gift to Jenny Rizzo – she just bought a Silhouette. I’m so happy to have someone to share this activity with and exchange ideas. I’ve already told her about this website!

  65. Tiffany H December 4, 2015 at 4:43 pm

    Would love to win! Thanks for the freebies. I would also like to share with my friend Wendy Jung

  66. Traci Rickert December 4, 2015 at 5:21 pm

    Thank you for all the December freebies thus far…they are fantastic! My friend’s name is Helen Johannes and she’s super special to me…she’s my MOM! :)

  67. Kathy H December 4, 2015 at 5:36 pm

    So much fun… and loving the free designs!! This is adding so much the wonderful, warm feeling I have this time of year!! Merry Christmas to one and all… Be especially blessed. I’d love to give a gift to Marie G. as well… she deserves a little extra jingle!

  68. Carol December 4, 2015 at 6:06 pm

    Love all your classes

  69. Amber D December 4, 2015 at 6:09 pm

  70. Megan K. December 4, 2015 at 6:17 pm

    Thank you for the freebie! Love your countdown to Christmas :)

  71. Katrina H December 4, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    Collette C is amazing because she’s my sister and she puts up with me, which I’m sure takes a lot! Thanks for the freebies and the chance to win!

  72. Stacy V December 4, 2015 at 7:43 pm

    Love your cut file with the gold vinyl :D My twin is always there and there’s nothing more I could ask for.

  73. Robin Walston December 4, 2015 at 7:55 pm

    Thanks for the free files. Merry Christmas.

  74. Brandy J December 4, 2015 at 8:13 pm

    Thanks for the freebie! My friend Viv is great to share crafty plans with!

  75. Megan December 4, 2015 at 8:40 pm

    Thanks so much. These little freebies are so great for December daily! Today’s one is awesome! My mum is awesome. She is always there when I need her!!

  76. 3kidmama December 4, 2015 at 8:54 pm

    Cheri is an amazing friend because in the nearly 20 yrs that I’ve been blessed with her friendship, I have never heard her say a negative thing about another person. She always seems to focus on the best in other people and as her friend I truly cherish that generosity of spirit – it’s infectious! :)

  77. laura mm December 4, 2015 at 9:36 pm

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway! I would give it to my amazing cousin, because she is so sweet! :)

  78. BERTHA December 4, 2015 at 9:56 pm

    Thanks for the giveaway chance. I would gift this to my sister Nicole who is very loving.

    She says she isn’t creative or crafty but has great crafting and decorating ideas. It would help her explore using her creative side more.

  79. Allison Kimball December 4, 2015 at 10:35 pm

    I have thoroughly enjoyed the freebies. What a wonderful giveway! Thank you for your generosity. I would give this to my friend Jessi S., new to silhouette and wanting to learn more.

  80. StacieD December 4, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    Yes! Love this week of fun! I’d share with Amanda. She and I love using cut files on everything!

  81. Lara Read December 4, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    Jana M. She would do anything for anyone. So kind.

    Thanks for the freebies!

  82. Janet Meyerhoffer December 4, 2015 at 11:45 pm

    Love this! What a great giveaway! I would give to my co-worker!

  83. Ginger December 5, 2015 at 1:51 am

    I love your classes and would love to share them w family and friends!!! Merry Christmas to you and your design team… Thank you for the continued inspiration!!

  84. Jeannie D December 5, 2015 at 9:00 am

    First let me say I love the 12 days of giveaways….so generous and thoughtful of you. Second thanks for the chance to win. I would share this with Michelle B so we could continue to challenge each other with new ideas…somethings we started 16 years ago when we met at a LSS crop!

  85. Cori December 5, 2015 at 10:00 am

    Thank you, Kerri!

  86. Cori December 5, 2015 at 10:07 am

    Oops! Forgot to include my bestie-sister’s name! My sis, Darcie Naylor, and I have practically identical Pinterest boards – we love so many of the same things! She recently got a new home after years of waiting and I want her to be able to decorate and craft to her hearts content!

  87. Rita Timmons December 5, 2015 at 11:43 am

    Wow! Thanks for the change to win a great prize! happy holidays! love the great inspiration.

  88. Melitta Ball December 5, 2015 at 1:43 pm

    My wonderful friend, Debbie Shypitka, is my choice to win a gift card! I was very sick for 16 months (March 2014 to August 2015) and during that time she constantly came to my home to visit & scrapbook with me because I wasn’t allowed to leave home due to infections that could have cost me my life! I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and because of my medications I can’t drive but Debbie comes to pick me up and takes me to every event, luncheon, get together etc. to make sure I don’t miss out on anything and she NEVER asks for anything in return. Debbie has a huge heart and I’m grateful to be blessed with her friendship!

    Many Blessings,
    Melitta Ball

    • Kerri December 6, 2015 at 6:19 am

      Wow Melitta! You have an amazing friend! Be well.
