An Announcement from Gerrianne

Hello Everyone!

I have always been told that …..“when one door closes another door opens”…. or how about….”that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”…..As painful as it may be I have to say I truly believe both of these statements and they have been weighing heavy on my mind over these last few months as I have found myself faced with several challenges that have literally shook me to my core and left me simply asking “why?”.

So I find myself at the proverbial crossroads of life knowing that I can’t change anything in the past but what I can do is put my big girl panties on and move forward.

At this point I’m sure you’re asking “what does all this mean to you?”.

First let me start by assuring you that I am working diligently to mail everyone’s October kit out within the next week. This kit promises to be overflowing paper, embellishments and all things scrappy. This overstuffed kit is my way of thanking all of you for your loyalty and friendship over the years but it will be the last kit from Kit n’ Kaboodles.

The Kit n’ Kaboodles site( and it’s message board will close on October 15th so if there are any images you would like to save from either site please do it before then.

Okay…so that was the proverbial door that closed……now for the newly open door.

I am thrilled to announce that I will be launching a new site in the next few months that will be my therapeutic happy place! This new site will offer a variety of two page layout kits, card kits, project kits for mini-albums and home d├ęcor for everyone from the novice scrapper to the more advanced scrapper. It will feature products from my favorite designers and manufacturers like Tim Holtz and Claudine Hellmuth from Ranger, Prima, Petaloo, Canvas Corp, Quick Qutoes, Heartfelt Creations, Graphic 45, Bo Bunny and so much more! I am so excited about this new site as it will allow me to do what I love….and that’s to just simply create!

I would like to thank all of you for your business but more importantly I would like to thank you for your friendship and I hope that you will keep in touch. I will be emailing each of you when my new site is up and running and I do hope you pop in to browse and say hi!

I appreciate all of you reading through my long winded email as it was certainly an emotional one to write but let me recap some important dates.

September 25th: This was the last time current members were charged. There will be no future charges.

October 11th: All kits will be shipped out to current members.

October 15th: Kit n’ Kaboodles site and message board ( will close.

TBD: I will be emailing all of you when my new site is up and running.

This Blog will remain active.

Take Care and I’ll see you soon on the new site!

More fun with Graphic 45

Here is another card that I made with the Steampunk Debutante paper pack from Graphic 45. At first glance, some of the images on the papers might make you do a double take, they are really quite striking. The colors are amazing. These designs and images bring us back in history to a very different time and place.
The Steampunk Debutante line is totally different than anything that Graphic 45 has done in the past. Most of the Graphic 45 line is traditional, vintage utilizing beautiful imagery from our past. To see more of their papers, please stop by the KNK store.
