Kerri Bradford Designs Frame Project, Layout and Card

 I have had so much fun this week checking out all the die-cutting inspiration at Kerri Bradfords site! Today, I am honored to be a part of the celebration! All of these projects are up at Kerri's site where you can see more details and also, what kits I used on each project.
Quick note, the framed project is in my front entry way with a large picture of the kids above it in another frame. I made the banner last year but it's the perfect color scheme so I hung it up when I did this framed die-cutting piece. Love the color and the beautiful sentiment that it brings to our entry way.
The layout is just a bunch of die-cuts and fun stuff! I just simply had fun creating! :)
And the card - simple but fun!

So check out Kerri's site today for more details about each. Also, be sure to check out the kits that are on sale today and tomorrow! Only one more day!

And to help celebrate...we have to do a big giveaway right! :) :)
Leave a comment here and I will draw a random winner to win:
$50 in kits of your choice to Kerri's store! YUMMY!! It doesn't get better than that! :) So, leave a comment and I will announce the winner Sunday night! Good luck and thanks for stopping by today!

Custom Chalkboard Word Art: Remember This

As I mentioned yesterday, I am a huge fan of Kerri Bradfords style and her digital die-cutting kits. When we moved into this home a year and a half ago, I was hanging up this chalkboard and thought that it just needed a little something.

I went to my Silhouette machine and found this great corner word art that Kerri had designed. Loved it!

I rotated the design and cut it out on cardstock as large as I could. I applied some temporary tape (dry runner) to the back the cut out design and stuck it to the chalkboard. I then carefully outlined the words with a white chalkboard marker - love it! The marker makes it look so clean and crisp - it doesn't have the same look as vinyl which I wasn't looking for for this project.
I get a lot of people asking me how I did it and if I wrote it myself! Hehehheee! :) Now, as I am posting these photos of my chalkboard, I'm thinking I'm ready to paint it a fun color! I see another project coming on! :)

Thanks again Kerri for the great designs! Be sure to check out her blog this week for lots of inspiration and for great sales! Be sure to come back Thursday when I will reveal my projects for her celebration this week and also open up a big giveaway!!

Kerri Bradford Designs One-Year Anniversary!

I remember first meeting Kerri at a CK University years ago. Then, I got addicted to her 'Graphically Speaking' cartridge for the Cricut machine and then her AMAZING die-cutting designs for the Silhouette store! Everything that girl created - I had to have! Graphic, clean - just the perfect designs that matched my style of scrapbooking just perfectly! She was the reason that I got a Silhouette in the first place - I had to play with all her amazing designs!

When I heard that she had left Silhouette, I instantly emailed her and begged her to create kits on her own and to sell them. I was so thrilled when she did! And now, we celebrate her one year anniversary of selling kits on her blog! And today, she is also launching a new site! Check it out! So yummy!

I am so excited to be a part of her celebration this week! Check out her blog each day this week for a new artist and for loads of inspiration! I think my day is Thursday - so I'll be back then to share my projects here as well.

In the meantime, be sure to stop by her amazing digital die-cutting shop each day for fabulous sales - a new one each day. Here is the list of upcoming sales each day:
Tomorrow, I'll be sharing a project I did with one of her designs that she created for the Silhouette store. And then Thursday, I'll be sharing all my projects that I created for Kerri's big one-year anniversary party this week! I'll also be opening up an amazing giveaway to Kerri's store! So don't miss it!

Congrats Kerri! I just love ya girl!
