Meet Our February Guest Designer

February and Valentine's Day is fast approaching and here at My Creative Scrapbook, love is definitely in the air! We're all in love with February's Guest Artist, Gerry Van Gent. She's dazzled us with her punch work, she's charmed us with her clever photo techniques and she's made us all weak in the knees over her attention to detail. And we're positive you'll fall in love with her too!

Gerry Van Gent

My name is Gerry van Gent. I'm a Bulgarian, but I've lived in the Netherlands for the last 10 years. I'm married to Arjen, a wonderful Dutch man, and we have two gorgeous children. We have Alexander who is 6 years old and Leanne who is 2. My kids are my inspiration. I love taking photos (sometimes too many) and I love to scrap them! I was SAHM when my first child was born and I was looking for a different way to display my photos and that's how I first discovered scrapbooking. I started scrapping in 2004 and became addicted immediately. And since then, the addiction's only increased. Luckily, I'm surrounded by friends who share the same passion for the hobby and we often crop till we drop.

I work for a hobby store (“Pipoos”) as a manager and most of my creations are displayed within the store. I've had some of my work published in our store's magazine. I work with a great team and refer to them as my second family. I love being among people, talking, helping and advising.

I'm very happy, lucky, excited and honored to be a Guest Designer at MCS for February and to work with all the talented ladies. I can`t wait to share my creations with you!

You're sure to be romanced and woo'd by Gerry and the rest of the amazing design team on February 5th. It's a date!
