a bit about me.
Hey! I'm Kerri Bradford--wife and mother of three. Been in the business in some fashion since 1999--working with Lisa Bearnson doing QVC, designing kits for Creating Keepsakes' Kit of the Month program, creating Cricut Cartridges, and working for QK/Silhouette.
I love spending time with my family, traveling and photography. Life couldn't be any better when I can do all three at the same time!
I'm so happy doin' 'my thing' creating art for digital craft cutters and digital scrapbooking and getting to know all you fabulous people all over the world!
Hope you enjoy the site!
[ This is the first class in the Silhouette series. ]
You just got your new baby . . . *ehem*. . . Silhouette. She's all hooked up and now you're wondering how to get to know her better. Join Kerri Bradford as she leads you through the ins and outs of what you see in Silhouette Studio. She'll give you a basic overview of how to use the library for Silhouette shapes + shapes from outside sources as well as show you the basic tools and menus to help you get on your way to making your first cuts! And not only will you make your first cuts, but you'll walk away with an adorable mini album as the class project! (Please note, the lessons taught in this class can apply to all models of the Silhouette....the software for the machines is all the same.)
