Love by Di Garling

Love by Di Garling (MMK139)

Di Garling is back with a new kit for us! Her latest, Love, is a beautiful vintage inspired about that is classic in color, texture and oh so much fun to follow along and make! The mix of products used along with Di’s fabulous array of composition and techniques is perfect. See for yourself….

Love it right? Perfect title. 🙂 The kit comes complete with the papers, trinkets and flowers used on her layout along with access to the online tutorial detailing how she made this layout from start to finish. Only extra option for the complete version is the stencil used – 6×6 Tiny Circles Stencil from The Crafters Workshop (a GREAT texture stencil for so many projects).

Also have to give a shout out to the Stampers Big Brush… in Di’s last kit (Cherished Moments), she used this Big Brush Pen to add archival ink to her stamp. She used this as opposed to a regular stamp pad so she could control where the ink went. In a quick sweep with the brush she added color so that the stamp didn’t create harsh even lines that might not blend as evenly. Not sure about you – but I always have this problem so I was very happy to get and play with this. PERFECT! We added it to the store in Black, Brown, Gray and White (you can find them all here). It comes in an array of colors but figured these are most common.

OK enough rambling… As usual, I did a bonus page. I love it! I might have gone overboard but I had so much fun playing with the various pieces and embellishments. Sad to say but this was my first time playing with so many pieces from the fabulous Archivist Collection by my friend Frank Garcia. I added the Chipboard and More pack to blend with the leftover Fragment Flowers and Brads that Di used form the collection. It all blended so seamlessly. There’s so many pieces in the pack you could create another layout or two with some added paper.

Please forgive the terrible photo – it’s pouring here in New York today and lighting isn’t what it should be…

The real layout does have that same amber color as shown on Di’s kit.  I love it! Thank you Di!
