I must confess… I am living the dream! Married to a wonderful man, three fabulous kids and a business that is all I have dreamt of. The Scrapbook Diaries started several years ago when I began teaching at local stores in the New York area. Somewhere along the line I started wanted to learn more, try new things and was always in aw of different designers works. The website started and some very talented designers agreed to make online how-to videos for us. It has evolved in to the site it is today.
Why all the rambling? Well…. When you are lucky enough to have some of the friends I do, you get the most talented, amazing designers in the world that come together. From time to time we do what my kids call a “Mash-Up”. Today’s kit, the G&G Kit is a double kit in which Gabrielle Pollacco and Gerry van Gent have each created a layout and tutorial for us. They use the Spring and Fall watercolor pencil set from Prima marketing as their color base. Each one uses different techniques and different colors fro the set to create two very different pages. And as always, both Gabi and Gerry give us such great insight in to their creative process.
So different and both so amazing! You might notice a common element among the layouts, the stamp set. The kit also uses Gerry’s Flower Stamp Set that she designed exclusive for the Scrapbook Diaries. the stamp set has three stamp clusters on the 4″ x 6″ sheet. Perfect floral elements for so many crafting needs.
THANK YOU GERRY AND GABRIELLE!!!!! Amazing designers and amazing friends!
The kit comes in Basic, Basic plus watercolor pencils and Complete. Basic has al the papers, flowers and trinkets to make these two pages as well as at least two additional pages (bonus samples shown below). The Complete kit also comes with Gerry’s Flower Stamp Set, 6×6 Butterfly Collage Stencil (Crafters workshop) and the Spring & Fall Watercolor Pencil Set (Prima).
