Gerry Van Gent Education Coordinator Badge

My name is Gerry van Gent. I’m a Bulgarian woman who lives in The Netherlands. Married to Arjen – my supportive Dutch hubby and a mother to two kids who are often smiling on my projects. Since 2009 I got seriously involved into paper crafting and designed for many leading companies.

My work is romantic, shabby chic and sometimes you can find touches of vintage. My projects are detailed and dimensional. I love stamping, playing with paint, hand-stitching and fussy-cutting.

I am an owner of Gerry’s Crafty Studio which is the place where I create, give workshops and make video tutorials.

My name is Karan Gerber and I reside in Ontario, Canada. I am very passionate about this paper hobby and love sharing my tips and techniques with others. I love dimension and layers and you will often hear me say, when in doubt, pop it in my classes.
During the past 18 years I have had the privilege to serve on many Design Teams where I have been able to build my unique style. I have been fortunate to have been published several times in my favorite magazine the Creative Scrapbooker which is Canadas favorite scrapbook magazine.
I currently teach classes across Ontario at four scrapbook stores. I also teach at Ontarios largest scrapbook event called Scrapfest. I am thrilled be able to connect with so many new friends and introduce them to my favorite hobby of papercrafting. I am currently on the Creative Scrapbooker Blog team; the 49 and Market Educator Team as well as the 2Crafty Chipboard Team. I look forward to inspiring you.
