Hello!! Seems like it has been a while since we have posted a kit from the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco! Good things come to those who wait!!! Gabi’s latest kit for us is another beautiful layout filled with little details that make this one really stand out. Who knew I needed that Dusty Concord Distress Ink I have had for years and never used? Love how the color packs a punch!
Could that photo be any cuter? 🙂
The kits is filled with the pieces Gabi used to make this layout and access to an online tutorial where she shows us step by step how to recreate our own. If you guys have been buying Gabi’s kits for a while now, please note that she talks in this video!! Yes – always love to hear our designers voices!
In addition to Gabi’s page, I made a bonus…
There you have it! Hope you like it as much as we do!!!
In addition to Gabi’s kit, I should note we’ve been busy adding new products to the store! And by we, I mean Chloe. If you are wondering who Chloe is, she’s that stunning beauty in Gabi’s layout. This much needed help means that you’ll be seeing more and more new products being added on a consistent basis. As you know I like to shop. been busy ordering so many fun new things will be coming in soon enough. Chloe makes sure we actually get it on the site so that you in tern can buy it.
Products recently added include the amazing Carabelle Studio stamps and stencils. These cling stamps feature eclectic, collage elements that make interesting background for any of your projects. My favorite is the 12″ edge stamps. How cool is that – use in snips or use the full length against a border on page.
In addition to the stamps – we also got our hands on some of the Brand New Distress Oxide Inks from Tim Holtz/Ranger. Wondering what this is about and why you need another Distress Product? Here you go, right from the horses mouth…
We have lots of new products coming in daily. In fact I thin the new Distress Oxide pads from Tim Holtz were just delivered. Will try to get online in the next day or two. Also received a box from Scrapiniec -YUMMY!

Happy to report we have a new kit from the ever talented Di Garling. Leave it to Di to create a layout that lends itself to highlight any choice photos. With a little of this and a little of that, Di does her thing and creates another gorgeous layout! This one features some papers from Blue Fern’s Serendipity Collection.
We are offering the kit in 3 versions…. Basic, Plus and Complete. The Plus kit includes the 2 shades of Inglingz from Shimemrz that Di used, Tarnished Treasure and Olive U Truly. The Complete version included those as well as a Victorian Velvet Mini Distress Ink Pad and Gabi’s Texture Stamp Set. Not sure if any of you out there don’t have the stamp set yet but figured we’d offer. 🙂 In addition, you get a full pack of the Fine Word Set of chippies from 2Crafty which are some seriously great words to have on hand for any other projects.
Here’s a look at the bonus page I did….
The paper here is from the Seaside Collection. So many Blue Fern papers just coordinate from one collection to another making it easy to interchange. Love both these layouts and how they turned out!
In addition to Di’s new kit, we just posted some brand new pieces from 2Crafty. Always fun to feast your eyes and crafty hands on new chipboard pieces.
You can find a complete list of available 2Crafty pieces here.
More to come… New Kits from Pascale B., Nathmael and Gabrielle! New products from Dusty Attic, Crafters Workshop and more!
I know, you might be thinking – am I seeing things? Two kits posted in such a short time frame? I know… I have been on it lately! 🙂 Just teasing. Seriously speaking though, I am happy we are back on track with things!!! Orders have resumed to the usual 24-48 hour turn around for the most part… Kits getting posted… new products coming in that will be posted soon. All good!!! Hope you are all back to normal and adjusting to weather changes, kids back to school, etc.
We are due to post some other designer kits soon but didn’t want to hold this one as it is beached themed. October is a GREAT time to get those beach photos printed and make those memories proud by showcasing them on some fabulous layouts!
Gabrielle Pollacco created not one but two layouts for this kit!!!! She shows us how to recreate her Captivating layout in an online tutorial as well as some pointers on how to make the Tranquil Moments layout. Gabrielle Pollacco + Seaside Cottage Collection paper from Blue Fern Studios… you can’t go wrong! See for yourself…
Such amazing details and textures!
Her second page, Tranquil Moments…
I for one am hanging these layouts up on the walls!!! In fact, will make a little 4 panel collage of the layouts. After all, I got to create 2 additional pages as well…
Of course as usual I do need to go find some photos and print them out!!! Hope you like as much as we do!! o much fun to do. and those Twinkling H20 colors are just a fabulous match and add to these papers – Beachouse Blue and Ancient Coin. Leave it to Gabi to find the perfect match!
What’s coming? Plenty! We have the brand new Maja Design collection of paper in stock – I Wish. Not only perfect for the Christmas season but winter as well – I LOVE the snowman images! Will be added to the site this week.

We hope you will enjoy our new stock that come in to our store!
We are back with some amazing projects and some new pretty products. This time we have three stunning kits! As always Gabi has created some special pages for you.
We are starting with ‘Blessed’ by Gabrielle Pollacco. Gabi brings us a beautiful layout filled with chipboard and textures. This kit was created for Dusty Attic and reproduced with permission from both Gabrielle and Dusty Attic. It is a 1-Page layout. This kit does not have a coordinating video, only printed directions with photos of step by step. We love this girly page… attention to details and mixed media touches has stolen our heart.
Next up we have two more kits ‘Love Summertime’ in two different colors for you to choose. Gabrielle Pollacco created a video tutorial for Maja Design. This layout and video feature the ‘Summertime In the Garden‘ Collection from Maja (Red color scheme kit). She was kind enough to let us create a kit to go along with the layout but we couldn’t stop there. Maja Design also has a ‘Summertime By the Sea‘ Collection (Blue color scheme kit)…. We had to offer both as it’s one of the best summer collections out there!!!! You can find the video for the red Love layout on YouTube here.
Thanks Gabi!!!! You make the rest of us look so talented!!!
What’s new in store? We are so happy to present to you some of the most pretty chipboards ever! ‘Scrapiniec’ as always creates most delicate and precious pieces! Those little beauties are perfect for every cardmaker and scrapbooker! We are sure you will love them! Lavender, heart, lace and more… just have a look at yourself!
There is even more new products on the way! Prima Marketing summer release is already here, just waiting to add them to the store! Lots of beautiful flowers, papers and embellishments! In addition we will have ALL the Brand new products from 49andMarket and more!

Seems we have been neglecting the blog this summer. Well rest assured we are keeping busy over here! Today we have a fabulous kit form the ever-talented Gabrielle Pollacco. I know you ladies have missed her work but she has LOTS lined up so be sure to visit her blog frequently. And even more exciting, we’ll be featuring a bunch of her upcoming layouts as kits. For today, we have Picture Perfect. An amazing steampunk layout filled with fabulous chipboard pieces. Our very own Nathmael designed the cog/leaf pieces featured on the layout for EmbelliScrap. EmbelliScrap is a french chipboard company. Guess we should add our stock to the website one of these day. Yes, will do that soon. In addition, there’s two great pieces from ScrapFx that just add to the steampunk / masculine look and feel of this layout.
In case you are wondering about the pic…. That’s Gabrielle’s son-in-law to be. Her daughter got engaged last week! Congrats!!! While this pic might make him look a bit scary, he really is quite handsome. 🙂 He does these crazy tough mudder’s.
Well, the masculine look of this layout is perfectly fitting of the grunge and grime going on with Gabi’s photo. Also perfect for just about anything if you ask me. I know I usually tel you about the kit at this point but I have to show off my bonus page as I am over the top happy with it (I don’t always say that) but…
Sorry had to show off how cute that kid is. Oh yeah, he’s mine. 🙂
Anyway back to the kit which was so much fun. If you know Gabi like yo all do, you know she brings new tricks to the table and this was no different. The resist effect and use of Gelatos in this kit was a lot of fun. Just realizing I didn’t do it on my bonus. Might have to go back and add a bit after the fact. But anyway…. The kit comes with just about everything except some household items. You will need a baby wipe or wet cloth and some cinnamon. did we mention it’s a great smelling layout too?
The complete version of the kit includes the Dusty Attic Bubble Stencil and a jar of Prills. yes those tiny little textured balls you have been seeking all over designer’s blogs lately. They’ve been around for awhile but Rachelle Sigurdson rehashed them and we’re all addicted now. The jars are small – just mentioning as to not mislead anyone but they do go a long way. Basic has everything else including the 2 gelato sticks to create the brown and green color seen on the layouts. As always – please do read fun product description for all details.
Great kit right? And if you prefer the softer side of Gabi…. check back in about 2-3 weeks, we’ll have not 1 but 2 more kits for some special projects she did for Dusty Attic and Maja Designs. Speaking of Maja…. did you check out their new collection Summertime? LOVE!! just saying. And yes you will be seeing it used in a kit (or 2 very soon). 🙂
Also think in our lazy days we forgot to blog about the new Blue Fern Studios collection, Seaside Cottage. another fabulous beach collection. Might even be my all time fav Michelle Singh collection yet. I love the images and colors – you will for sure be seeing 2 kits using the colleciotn as well. What can I say when I like something… we just have to do it. So if you are wondering why we haven’t done a 49 and Market kit yet… well good question. We were waiting for just the right designer. And yes, we got it coming! Gerry van Gent has created a lovely layout featuring the Flower Fairy Collection. Will be the first time I get to work with these products. Kind of exciting!!!
Back to Blue Fern… We added a bunch of glitters and embossing powders as well. Lots of fun stuff to play with.
Also stocked up on a bunch of sold out pieces from Dusty Attic, Scrapiniec and 2Crfafty. We added a new chipboard manufacturer from Poland, SnipArt. Polish chipboard is the delicate white stuff we use in a bunch of kits. The details are fabulous and easy to add without fussing over mediums and whatnot.
