Amoureux Pour Toujours Album by Frank Garcia

Amoureux Pour Toujours Album Cover

Did you know Frank Garcia LOVES his flowers? As if it weren’t evident enough, his latest Album Kit Exclusively for The Scrapbook Diaries will prove this very statement! 🙂

Frank has created another amazing album for us! the 8 1/2″ x 8 1/2″  chunky album is PERFECT for collecting your favorite wedding photos and moments or the PERFECT gift for some very lucky couple. In fact, I am just that! Frank made this album for me and hubby. and I am in love all over again – this time with the album! Thank you Frank for the labor of love and for such an awesome kit!

On to the album… He created this one from scratch with the perfect binding system that you can see on a previously aired Live with Prima episode (Boheme II Album).  the rest of the album comes with step-by-step photo directions and just about all the goodies you see. Please read complete product description for full details as there are a few items not included in the kit.

Beyond beautiful and oh so perfect for those treasured wedding memories. And if a wedding isn’t what you had in mind with a little change here or there on some of the printed Pion papers, you could “cover-up” the wedding specific images if you rurally wanted.

When you buy the kit you are getting over 4 full packs of Prima flowers plus a whole bunch of other lovely flowers that we split up from about 4 other packs. You’ll get 19 sheets of printed Pion papers as well as 16 solid card stocks. I should have started this post by saying frank loves his flowers and his paper. I don’t think we’ve ever had a kit with this much paper but don’t quote me for sure.

Here are some interior page samples…

Absolutely beautiful! Hope you like too.

My Baby Cheri Album Kit by Frank Garcia

My Baby Cheri Baby girl Album by Frank Garcia 2

Frank Garcia has been a busy guy lately. Not only has he been to Spain and Sweden in the last few weeks but he was busy making a set of brand new album kits exclusively for us.

The latest pair of albums – baby boy and baby girl albums are the perfect showcase for the brand new bundle of joy or to give as a gift.  They are only available in very limited quantities. Grab it while you can. We wish we could make more but the paper line is no longer available. (Good news is Frank and I are always applying something so we have lots of other fun new things in store so don’t fret if you miss out).

Here’s his new babies…

Oh so beautiful in Frank’s signature style we know and love! The paid are pretty close to identical- just a few change ups in flowers and imagery.

The albums are created using our coveted stock of 6″ x 6″ Square memory Hardware Albums (we are sold out otherwise on these albums). So no need to spend time binding the book.  All set and ready to go for a fun time of embellishing. Lots of gorgeous Pion papers used int his album for al the layering. Frank does use a few decorative border punches from his stash to add a little more flair.

Between these albums, the brand new ScrapFx chipboard pieces we added earlier this weekend and the new Vintage Baby paper line from Maja Design, seems babies are  on the mind all over the place. Why shouldn’t they be? Perfect topic for showcasing such a truly memorable point in our loved ones lives. And of course we won’t stop here with this topic. You are sure to see a kit or two featuring the Maja Vintage Baby line.

Thanks for stopping in – this girl is off to bed! Have a great night.

Frank Garcia Day

Papillon II by Frank Garcia (Album07)

It’s not Frank Garcia‘s birthday today but it might as well be yours… we posted not one, not two but three kits all from the one and only Frank Garcia today!

First we have Frank’s last Live with Prima project, Le Collectionneur II available as a kit. This kit is loaded with the materials Frank used to create his beautiful album (see complete product description for details and substitutions based on product availability at time of kit). You can follow frank along on his video for the complete how-to instruction. We also included photos of the completed pages (please note no written direction is provided with Live with Prima kits).

Second, we have Frank’s next Live with Prima project, Aujourd’hui Layout, which will air on Tuesday, March 31st at 2:00 PM EST. Can’t make the lie show? No problem, they tape all recordings so you can watch at your convenience or as many times as you like. This is this first kit we were able to pull off in advance. Won’t it be fun to play at the same time Frank is going it? What better way to ask any questions you may have.

Both of the above projects feature Frank’s latest signature collection, The Archivist.  If you haven’t gotten your hands on it, better do it before it’s all gone! And don’t get me started on his Memory Hardware line… drooling – the albums are the best quality I have seen and limited supply will make these in high demand.

Third, we are so honored to have Frank as our friend. He graciously made an exclusive album for us featuring the Paris line from Pion, Papillon II! The beautiful creams, pinks and blues make this a delightful album that makes you have to smile.  The pop of color is just the thing for the coming months of spring (here in the US anyway).  Please note these kits are so limited and doubtful we will be able to stock too many more in the future.

Thanks for checking in.  Big day, huh?  3 kits? What were we thinking?  🙂  New products continuing to come in and more shipping notices that we will have lots of fun new goodies in now time.  Next week kits… Maja Nowak and Gabrielle Pollacco!

Thanks,

Janene

La Boheme III by Frank Garcia is Here Now

La Boheme III by Frank Garcia

Finally… we have all the pieces in place to provide you with the makings to follow Frank Garcia along on his last Live With Prima show. La Boheme III is a 6″ x 6″ handmade album featuring Prima’s Nature Garden Collection from Jodie Lee.  This beautiful album can be seen from start to finish here. Please note quantities are limited.

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….

Beauty and Grunge November 2014 Exclusive Stamp Set

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. We’ll announce it all tomorrow! So be sure to check back in.

Thanks,

Janene
