Beauty & Grunge Mega Mixed Media Kit Mona Pendleton

This Moment by Mona Pendleton

Our final day of a look at all the layouts the amazing Beauty and Grunge kit can yield is here!!!  Today we are so excited to announce that Mona Pendleton agreed to create four pages for us following along with the products given to our designers.  Always fun to take a look and see what another fabulously talented designer comes up with!

I love how Mona flipped the base paper upside down. The light to dark motion makes such a difference!

Mixing in the burgundy flowers brings such a different look to the layout.

Again, Mona brings such a different look to this layout. You might not even recognize the products mainly see as the same that Olga Heldwein used on hers.  Using one of the papers as the background brings a light look this beautifully grungy layout.

Popping some light blue using the Pastel Blue Chalk inker provided in the kit brings such a different look once again.  Mona added the blue/white vine from Prima as an extra tie in (my fault it’s not it in the kit as we pulled it out and forgot to tell Mona).

Thank you Mona Pendleton for participating in our Beauty & Grunge kit! Love seeing the different take on all of these layouts from you!

Seriously not sure which layouts I like better but I do know that ALL of the designers ROCKED this kit and so can you!!!!  There’s so much packed in to this kit you might be seeing flowers when you finish it. 🙂 Purchasing the kit comes with more sample layouts from Georgia HealdStacey YoungMaiko Kosugi and Olga Heldwein as well as a featured layout created by each with video instruction. The choice is your as to which layouts you wish to follow. But you’ll certainly be able to pull off 4+ product packed layouts out of this kit!

Reminder – International customers… so seldom we throw this out there but for our Beauty and Grunge Mixed Media Mage kit, we are offering you a shipping included rate. It’s a little higher than our US customers are paying but a great deal since shipping on a kit this weight tends to be around $33-38 depending on location. Be sure to click “Bill Me actual Shipping” at check out – we won’t bill you.  We do ask that you not add other heavy items to the order. If adding other kits or album kits, we will have to charge you the difference.  If you want a piece or two of laser chipboards, stencils or stamps… fine to add at no additional cost.

Hope you’ve enjoyed the look in to this special kit. You can find all the product details in the store by clicking here.

A short week next week but we’ll try to finally post new products from Blue Fern Studios – we have Sanctuary in stock as well as a bunch of other fabulous new chippies!  Also have a box of ScrapFX sitting around that we need to add and another box on it’s way.

New kits coming in the weeks to follow:

  • Elena Morgun has another book for us. This one features Cold Country from 7Dots Studio
  • Keren Tamir
  • Gabrielle Pollacco
  • and more!

Thanks,

Beauty & Grunge Mega Mixed Media Kit Sample Pages

Smile by Maiko Kosugi

Yesterday we unveiled the second installment of Beauty and Grunge Mixed Media Mega Kit.  As announced, this edition has another batch of internationally known designers who are turning this mixed media kit in to a mega, four designer/four layout kit. When you purchase the kit, you get video tutorials from: Georgia HealdStacey YoungMaiko Kosugi and Olga HeldweinYou can follow the videos along and create your own layouts as they are showing you step by step how they created theirs.

In the event you more “Beauty” than “grunge” or more “Grunge” than “Beauty”, we had each designer create a second layout using another designers products. We didn’t give you a second video or instructions but after watching the designer videos, you’ll get a sense of their style and process. So inspiration is all around.

Time to show you those amazing layouts? Makes you want to buy two sets of the kit, right? And just wait till you see Mona Pendleton’s sample pages tomorrow – you might want a third set. 🙂

Stacey Young uses products from Olga Heldwein’s selection:

Beauty and Grunge Mega Mixed Media Kit is Here!

Smile by Georgia Heald (B&G Nov 2014)

Finally the wait is over!!! The second installment of Beauty and Grunge Mixed Media Mega Kit is here!  Our next edition has another batch of internationally known designers who are turning this mixed media kit in to a mega, four designer/four layout kit. You will get video tutorials from: Georgia HealdStacey YoungMaiko Kosugi and Olga HeldweinYou will easily be able to make 4 layouts if you follow along with our designers and their online tutorials plus there’s going to be a bunch of extras so you can do even more!

Are you more “Beauty” than “grunge” or more “Grunge” than “Beauty”?  No problem – we have you covered! Each of our designers created a second layout using another designers products. We didn’t give you a second video or instructions but after watching the designer videos, you’ll get a sense of their style and process. So inspiration is all around.

And as if that weren’t enough… we had a friend of ours do another 4 sample layouts that were created by the ever talented Mona Pendleton!

Just to be clear since I tend to ramble, the kit is intended for you to make four pages in total. You’ll have the ability to pick and chose which layouts and styles you want to create.

Is that enough? Even though that answer is a definitive yes…. we bring you more!As we previously announced, we were able to pull together some special components for this kit. First, we have an exclusive stamp set that was mainly designed by Georgia Heald with a little added from me.  Georgia created some hand drawn stitched circle stamps that are a must have an only available in this kit!  Please note the stamp was mis-marked but theres no mistaking Georgia’s style on it.  In fact should we give you peek….

LOVE IT!!!!!  So obvious which pieces Georgia designed!  Can’t wait to use it!!!

Next up, we prepared an exclusive 12″ x 12″ stencil for it but when we submitted it to The Crafters Workshop for them to cut it for us, they loved it so much that you’ll be seeing this as a stencil under their label in January. The 6″ x 6″ is going to be fun!  So the one we have for you in the kit is a pre-released stencil! Who doesn’t love getting their hands on something a little early?   Here’s a peek….

We also had our friends at Blue Fern Studios laser cut us an exclusive set of chipboard for this kit. I won’t who you that as we have to leave a little to the imagination don’t we?  Titles include: Happy, Smile, Just a Glimpse and This Moment.

What else could be included? lots to say the very least. You can find a complete list of products here.

So the moment you have all been waiting for… the layouts….

La Boheme III by Frank Garcia

The kit comes with the materials needed to follow Frank along. Please see full product description for all details.

Stunning, right?  Frank’s signature style comes out on this cover!

And as if this kit weren’t enough for the week, we have lots more coming… the next installment of Beauty and Grunge will be available!!!!  As we previously announced, our Grunge Girls are Georgia Heald and Olga Heldwein while the “Beauties” are Stacey Young and Maiko Kosugi. Of course beauty is in the eye of the beholder.  I figured I’d divulge a little more information about the kit today…

Here’s how the kit works…. We have these 4 amazing designers.  each one of them has created a fabulous 12″ x 12″ layout along with a video tutorial.  We have created step by step photo directions to coordinate with the videos for referral that we’ll send along with the kit.  Do you like one designer more than another or prefer one style over another?  Well, there’s options to make this kit give you the most bang for your buck. Each designer created a second layout using materials from one of the other designers. Yes, we switched up styles. The bonus layouts don’t’ come with direction or video but then again, they never do, right? 🙂

In addition, we are bridging you even more samples!!!! the ever talented Mona Pendleton agreed to guest design not one, not two, not three but four layouts for us using the materials from the kit!!!! These don’t come with direction but they sure pack a lot of inspiration.

So what’s better than all of this?  Each designer got specific products to use for their kits but we combined the stencil, stamp and mediums so that the cost per page price is less than our usual kits. And if you’ve ever seen Stacey’s work, you know the amount of flowers that can be added to a page so that is saying a lot. 🙂

Well, like the last time, we were able to pull together some special components for this kit. First, we have an exclusive stamp set that was mainly designed by Georgia Heald with a little added from me.  Georgia created some hand drawn stitched circle stamps that are a must have an only available in this kit!  Please note the stamp was mis-marked but theres no mistaking Georgia’s style on it.  In fact should we give you peek….
