Gerry van Gent has a new kit for us!!!! Did you hear me scream that? 🙂  I love Gerry and her work! As is usual with Gerry, her latest tutorial shows you some tips and tricks as she once again maximizes products and produces and amazing layout that packs a punch with color pops.

Was I right? Beautiful as always! The layout features the beautiful House of Roses papers from LemonCraft. These have been quite popular and for good reason.  So versatile and beautiful you can mix and match in any color combo (or just about) for beautiful results! When you purchase the kit, you will get access to the online tutorial as well as materials needed to follow along.  Be sure to read full product description as we are offering a basic, plus and complete kit depending on your needs. Plus includes the ink, complete inks and stamp set. Please note the stamp set was used to create the beautiful frame around Gerry’s photo. If you have the inks and need/want the stamp, you can always buy he basic kit and add the stamp on. We try to include links where possible to make life a bit easier when ordering.

Didn’t need much extra to create the bonus page – a sheet of paper, title and a few flowers. Here’s what I came up with…

It’s been so grey here in New York that I didn’t get the best photo for color purposes but hopefully you get the gist of it. I have to say – LOVE how it turned out. Humble aren’t I? 😉

Thank you Gerry for a fabulous tutorial and layout!!!!!

We have so much planned. I never did a recap of CHA did I?  To be honest I can make it short and sweet. I LOVE going to CHA because I love getting to catch up with people that share the same passion and creative inspiration. Nothing beats it. I mean I got to meet Joanne Flannery from Embellish It in New Zealand. Been in touch for over a year but to get to meet face to face is wonderful. Frank Garcia – well, we got to pal around a bit. Vicky Boutin – LOVE –  a bright soul who makes you smile!  I did miss my Gerry – Gerry and I met at CHA 2 years ago and consider her a deer friend ever since.  Too many people to really start naming them all but point is – such a great time and wonderful opportunity to meet new and old friends.

That being said – new products is also a lot of fun. To be honest though… not so much for me – for us. Prima – of course! Ordered a lot of it! Crafters Workshop – for sure! We have some new companies that will be coming in – Creative Couture – a die company from Australia with some stunning designs… Flowers – lots of flowers coming. New Ranger – yes, we will have Tim’s new Distress Crayons and a bunch of fun new distressed mediums that add aging and cracking…. I am sure there’s more but honestly can’t think about it. We will post as new things come in so be sure to check in often.

New kits… well – we have a lot lined up! Next will be a kit from the ever so talented Gabrielle Pollacco – look for it on Monday.  After that we’ll have new kits from Delaina Burns, Rachelle Sigurdson, Pascale B., Maja Nowak and Di Garling! – and those are just the ones coming in the next 2-3 weeks. Even more after that.

Thanks for checking in. Hope you enjoy!
