Gabrielle Pollacco brings us another one of her “masculine” type layouts (not that her romantic pic with hubby is anything masculine of course)…. Together is Wonderful is just so perfect for so many occasions with friends, family and loved ones. maybe we should call it a rustic layout since she did such a great job creating the look and feel of weathered rust. As always Gabi’s video tutorial (access available when you purchase the kit) demonstrates how easy it is to create a rusted look with a common household ingredient like cinnamon. Did I let the cat out of the bag on that one?
Nothing other STUNNING or BEAUTIFUL or any other similar adjective can be used when you look at Gabi’s work. Always flawless and inspiring. The details she incorporates just pop!
We’ve had kits that may top the record charts for the use of flowers (Um, Stacey Young – :)) But this one is sure to set records with the amount of chipboard used in one kit. And it’s all just so perfect!
Thank you Gabrielle!!!
As usual, I made up a bonus page to go with this layout using left overs and just a few extra pieces. I didn’t have and wasn’t able to find a similar resist type paper to compliment this one but I did find a “normal” piece of paper from Prima’s Timeless Memories collection that goes SO well (at least I think so). I love this collection for background appears as they are so versatile and go with so many other things. I am digressing… here is my bonus sample…
Now of course if you are like me, you might not have cinnamon in your house and might be too lazy to get some. Well, I cheated a bit and combined a few other things… I used a Brown Wink of Stella Marker to get the shimmery type look which worked well and I could have left it alone there but then I reached in to the various paints and colored texture paints I have and never open and found another brown and verdigris type color to add a bit of. Love the finish look even though I think I could have saved myself a bit of a hassle by just getting some cinnamon. It’s already on the shopping list of next time.
I do love it but in hindsight probably would have balanced it out a bit better by adding the large cog to the left side of page to offset the branch on top but neither here nor there.
OK – think I have said enough about this amazing kit. We have another exciting product to unveil… the WELL anticipated follow up to Gabi’s Texture Stamp. This one, named, Gabi Crackle Textures Stamp (I can’t use punctuation in product titles or it bunks things up so hence the Gabi and not Gabi’s for the title)…
The 5 stamps are sure to go great on so many projects making this one a must have! The set is 4″ x 6″ of clear polymer stamps. Made in the US.
Shipping of 1 stamp set is $8.88 (Canada – a bit less for you). Shipping of 2-5 stamp sets is usual $11.48. If interested in the kit and stamp set, shipping will general be about $18.50.
