    My friend is Cindy Hardman and I’ve started a new Christmas tradition in that I give my kids something that has to do with our ancestry. Last year I used my silhouette to make a printable of a Swedish quote. This year they’ll all get a Christmas Pickle to out on their Christmas tree. So excited!

    My friend’s name is Nina – (just so happens she is my one and only sister and we are the best friends EVER and she is the one who got me into card-making!).

    What I’m most excited about for Christmas is our new grandbaby girl, Chloe, and that she makes it the first year to have a little one around for the Holidays. I can think of all sorts of crafting to do along this lines. A baby reminds me that Christmas is so much more than just presents!

    Thanks for the chance!

    Great idea to start Christmas projects early

  5. Michelle Bradtke July 21, 2016 at 7:26 am

    My friend is Jeannie Dulay, and one of my favorite Christmas traditions is attending her Annual Cookie exchange that always has a fun theme, using plenty of her scrap stash and Silhouette creations in the process.

    I would love to share this with my friend Virginia who also is a crafter who like to play with new designs. I am most looking forward to seeing my daughter for Christmas who is working in Florida this year.

  7. Jeanne Boardman July 21, 2016 at 7:34 am

    My friend is Amy Hass. My favorite Christmas tradition has been to gift my family and friends with a handmade Christmas ornament every year.

  9. Laurie July 21, 2016 at 7:47 am

    My friend is Danyale Lewis.

    What I like most about Christmas is family time. We have a huge family and it is so wonderful at Christmas to have us all together enjoying the holiday, cheer and food. It always a great reminder of how blessed I am! :-)

  10. Terrie July 21, 2016 at 8:20 am

  12. Gwen Lords July 21, 2016 at 8:42 am

    Oh I love everything about Christmas, the smells, colors, the decorations. Well I don’t love the craziness of shopping but everything else. Especially gathering the family all together that is the best part of it! My friend is Andrea.

  13. Rae Ramses July 21, 2016 at 9:02 am

    My friend Claudia and I usually have make and takes at her house for the holidays with our friends. We’d love to add some KBS to our crafty stash!

  14. HavenK July 21, 2016 at 9:56 am

    Def my friend Pam. I love the spirit of giving and how the holidays can bring out the best and make strangers kind to one another.

  15. Katrina H July 21, 2016 at 10:02 am

    My friend is my mom, Leslie.
    I’m usually excited for everything Christmas, but this year time has seemed to fly by way too fast and I’m not excited at all. But I do love spending time wth my family and having a few extra days off work.

  16. Peg July 21, 2016 at 10:28 am

    My friends name is Carole and she is the one that got me into the Cameo Silhouette and to the Kerri Bradford classes. What I love for Christmas is to share with my friends and family lots of crafty items, crackers, tree decorations and home decor. I have already started on some Christmas items.

  17. Monique van Duren July 21, 2016 at 12:01 pm

    My best friend is my sweet sister. We have so much fun crafting together. Love her very much.

    I look forward to decorate the tree. Then when we come home from work the Christmas tree with its cute lights on it, lit up our room and it is so cozy. Always love that.

  18. Karen K. July 21, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    My “friend” is Laura Waltz. For me, Christmas is all about celebrating our Savior and the love He has for us. I celebrate by spending time with those I love, especially my family.

  19. Susan July 21, 2016 at 1:09 pm

    I LOVE all of your ideas and products! Thanks for all the inspiration!

  20. Nicole Patterson July 21, 2016 at 1:51 pm

    Thanks Kerri – Christmas is a time where all creativity comes flowing out – and giving is such a joy. I’m happy you have so many wonderful files to use for Christmas – makes for awe and joy!! My friend would be my daughter in law Kristi – we gave her a silhouette last year for Christmas – thanks for the chance

  21. Michelle ach July 21, 2016 at 2:00 pm

  23. BMartin July 21, 2016 at 2:48 pm

    Scott is my best friend- we do everything together. I love just having time together and enjoying the moment.

  24. Jaci Nash July 21, 2016 at 2:49 pm

    My friend is Kristen, we love making cards together. My favorite thing about Christmas is making gifts for people and watching my grandkids open their presents.

  25. Christi July 21, 2016 at 3:00 pm

    My friend is Leah. She makes the most creative cards.
    I love everything about Christmas – the lights, the music, the decorations, the gatherings, the food…..

  26. Sarah Allcock July 21, 2016 at 3:15 pm

    My friend Starla is probably the only person crafter than I am (in my circle). She does calligraphy, etches glass and rocks, scrapbooks and paints. She bought my smaller electronic cutter when I stepped up to the 12″ Cameo, and uses it frequently to make stencils for her designs.

  27. Peggy July 21, 2016 at 3:26 pm

    Love your products @kimrod00

  28. Ericka Strange July 21, 2016 at 3:41 pm

  29. Ellen July 21, 2016 at 4:39 pm

    My friend Sheree and myself are so looking forward to making Christmas tags

  30. Lynette July 21, 2016 at 4:58 pm

    Seeing my two young kids get super excited about the season, and then telling me that we celebrate Jesus’ Birthday in the midst of the celebration! :)

  31. Kerrie July 21, 2016 at 5:18 pm

    My friend is my daughter Jade & what I love most about Christmas is seeing her again.

  32. Nashonne July 21, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    My friend’s name is Nicole Davis. I’m most excited about documenting the Christmas season. I did December Daily for the first time in 2015 and LOVED it! Have been preparing already for 2016.

  33. 3kidmama July 21, 2016 at 5:46 pm

    My friend, Cheri and I love making crafts for Christmas time. When I got married 30yrs ago, we lived on a shoestring budget and that first Christmas had very little to decorate our little place for Christmas. That led to a family tradition when our children came along of gifting them an ornament every yr so they would have a collection of Christmas items to use in their own homes one day.

    Last yr, I also made each of my 3 girls a KB “Jingle all the way” shadow box! They LOVE them!

  34. Tammy Davis July 21, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    I choose my sweet daughter-in-law, Mary Davis! She loves her Silhouette also! I enjoy getting out that tree the weekend after Thanksgiving (Friday if possible!) and we decorate and eat left-over Turkey, etc.! This year I will have 4 grandbabies helping to decorate! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  35. Tracy July 21, 2016 at 6:27 pm

    I chose my daughter, Dana, because she helps keep me inspired. She is the creative one, I just copy, by the way thanks for all your inspiring ideas!!!! I love Christmas, we decorate early too but I love getting out my Dickens Houses and making them come to life.

  36. Lara Read July 21, 2016 at 6:45 pm

    Jana Mangum is my friend. I just love having family all together.

  37. Cindee July 21, 2016 at 7:11 pm

    I inherited the crafting gene from my mother Peggy, who is over the top talented in everything she does. I love your digital cut files and I can’t wait to use the Christmas ones I bought during the sale this week. I’m thinking a day of crafting with my mom and daughters is the perfect way to kick off the Christmas season!

  38. Nita K. July 21, 2016 at 7:14 pm

    My friend is Katey. I most look forward to music and movies for the Christmas holidays.

  39. Mel H July 21, 2016 at 7:33 pm
