Marta Lapkowska is Now Designing for The ScrapbooK Diaries

Precious Memories by Marta Lapkowska

So excited to announce that the ever wonderful Marta Lapkowska is designing kits for us!  I’ve long been a fan of Marta’s work. She manages to go from beautiful to grungy to beautifully grungy!  Her works are always filled with great details and color.

Her first kit for us is no different. She uses pieces from the new Lost and Found Collection from 7Dots Studio which brings gray, teal and mustard together oh so nicely. See for yourself….

Doesn’t hurt to have a beautiful daughter to model for your pages either does it? 🙂

I love the texture, colors and emotion Marta pulls together on this layout.  Her online tutorial is full of detail and explanation as to how and why she does what she does.  When you purchase the kit you get the materials needed to make your own layout as well as access to the video.  Be sure to read the complete description of details on the kit as we are offering different version for those of you who may need different elements. Marta does use two stencils and two stamp sets. We added one of each to the complete version as they tend to be the elements more visible but you can always add the extra pieces listed in the materials not included section. Did that rambling make sense? 🙂

Like most of our kits, I had fun making a bonus page to go along with Marta’s style. Using 2 extra sheets of paper and some left over pieces, this is what I came up with….

Always self critiquing – only thing I would have changed or done different looking at it now… I would have tucked the tags in a bit more to tighten up my cluster. Overall thought, I love it! Had a lot of fun working on both these layouts. Love the colors and composition. Hope you do too.

That’s it for me for now. Lots coming. Tomorrow we should be listing frank Garcia’s Live with Prima Christmas Album that will air live tomorrow. This will be offered as a pre-sale as we are waiting on 2-3 more items to arrive.  This Friday we will have the much anticipated next Gabrielle Pollacco kit. this one a beach layout perfect for scrapping all those summer memories.

Note on Gabi’s Crackle Stamp – we are sold out. Boo! I know… We are in production for more as well as a few BRAND NEW stamp sets that will be coming out so please be patient. They will be restocked for sure. We are estimating about a month out.

Thanks for stopping by.
