Dreamer Kit by Gabrielle Pollacco

Dreamer by Gabrielle Pollacco (MMK190)

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…

Yes, we need them! 🙂

Thanks for checking in.

Sweet by Di Garling

Sweet by Di Darling (MMK188)

How Sweet it is indeed! Di Garling packs a punch with the vibrant pink and green tones used in her latest kit for us. Di always manages to make her layouts come to life. Take a look for yourself…

Between the LemonCraft papers and the green Prima flowers… totally beautiful!

Di shows us her process in the online tutorial (access provided when you purchase the kit). She adds a lot of details here and there to make her layout shine. Please be sure to read complete product description for details on what is included in which version of the kit. We try to include packages to give you only what you need and want.

In addition to Di’s page, I made a bonus sample using some leftover products and a few sheets of papers and a pack of brads (couldn’t help myself as I thought they went so well)…

You can find all details on the kit here. Thanks Di for another beautiful kit for us to play with!

What else is going on here at The Scrapbook Diaries?   Always something but who can think? 🙂  We’ll have more new products coming soon – all those lovely 49 and Market products you’ve been asking for. Did you see we added over 70 new products from the Crafters Workshop the other day? Stencils and mediums to add so much to any of your projects.

New kits coming over the next few weeks – Rachelle Sigurdson, Nathmael and Gabrielle Pollacco.  In addition we have a treat from 49 and Market Design team member Tine Ollett. She creates a beautiful layout using the Flower Fairies of Spring collection.

That’s it – happy Super Bowl to those of you watching!!!

Treasure by Gabrielle Pollacco

Treasure by Gabrielle Pollacco (MMK186)

We are so excited to announce a new kit from the fabulous Gabrielle Pollacco! I know a lot of you have been patiently awaiting news of this kit. Today is the day to rejoice!!! 🙂

Gabi uses a soft brown and purple palette mixed in with all of our favorite products to create a beautiful page that will be one to adore for years to come as it is timeless.

Treasure by Gabrielle Pollacco (MMK186)

The Tarnished Treasured Inklingz is the perfect match for the Vintage Artistry paper from 49 and Market.  And if you bought Di Garling’s last kit, ironically named Treasure, then you may already have this color. While these two kits use both the same word set (Fine Word Set 1 from 2Crafty) and Inklingz color, they are very different in color and composition. These two pieces are so versatile – can you ever have enough great chipboard words?

With the addition of Prills and stamping, we are offering this kit in basic, plus and complete versions. The plus kit includes the Inklingz Tarnished Treasure and Cat’s Eye Chalk Ink in Chestnut Roan. The complete kit includes those two pieces plus the I Can Not tell a Lilac Prills and Gabi’s Postcard from Paris Stamp Set. If you have some of these pieces and not others, you should be able to add them on a la cart.

As always (well just about always), I had fun playing with a bonus sample. Here’s my take….

Love Always Bonus Sample MMK186
Love Always Bonus Sample MMK186

Confession about a few things… I totally over painted the area around the photo mat so what to do? I added the “love” word vertically to try and compensate. Think it worked pretty well. Also had a little fun with the stems off the paper. The dainty Scrapiniec pieces mixed with the weight of the Prills and my not so careful approach left me with some of these strands that had come off other pieces. Personally, love how it turned out with the splash of color to that part of the page. Hope you like too.

And since it’s the holiday season upon us, we figured why not do something special to say thank you to all of our customers…..

 

So there you have it. You can find video links to Gabi’s sold out kits here. In the coming weeks, we’ll add other designer kits that have sold out and try to streamline the video access page. As we add more and more kits, it’s beginning to get a bit cluttered. Think the photo montage of layouts is a nice way to easily decide which video you’d like to watch.

ENJOY!!!!!

We’ll have more before the year is over. New products in include the Gossamer Blue line from LemonCraft – hoping to have it added this weekend. We have new Mini Twinkling H20 colors to add and lots of chippies from all your favorite companies. In addition we have a special treat from Tina Ollett and more!

Thanks,

Janene

Sunset by Pascale B

The mix of orange and green on the brown background just works so well. To be honest, I was nervous at first about the colors – I love orange but never really use in scrapbooking I guess. I thought what if people don’t have a photo of the perfect sunset like Pascale had.  Well was I wrong – as usual. 🙂 I chose a pic of my daughter holding a pumpkin and it was perfect!!!! Here’s what I did for the bonus page which had nothing to do with the orange and gold colors. Actually, I tried adding some blue color gelato to bring out their shirts but after making a mess of a few flowers I said, ah ha… you need the orange to work with the gold undertones and the techniques Pascale demonstrates in her video. In the end, couldn’t be happier with the result…

Love how it turned out and hope you do as well. Pascale is a mixed media expert and knows how to mix it all up for fabulous results. Thank you Pascale.

Please be sure to read full product description so you can see what is included in the different versions and chose what best suits your needs.

After working on this kit I realized we had a few kits using Gelatos. We’re bringing in the complete range of them and making them available on an individual basis. At $2.45 a stick, they’re a great way to add some color and pack a punch where you want and need.  Expect them to be up on the site in the next day or two. We also have more new products that just came in which will be added tot he site… new LemonCraft and chippies from ScrapFx.We all need more hours in the day don’t we? We’l get there soon.

As for new kits coming…

  • Gabrielle Pollacco brings us another stunning layout featuring those lovely lavender pieces from Scrapiniec
  • Tina Ollett, one of the 49 and Market Design Team girls doe s guest spot for us here at The Scrapbook Diaries. Tina did a project for her DT assignment that we just had to turn in to a kit. She was gracious enough to redo it along with video tutorial so we can all enjoy.
  • Nathmael has been busy and we need to catch up. Not sure which of the 2 projects she’s turned in for the next one but both stunning!

That’s it for me right now. Hope you are all off to a good start for December!

Thanks for stopping by,

Treasure Mixed Media Kit by Di Garling

Treasure by Di Garling (MMK184)

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.

Treasure by Di Garling (MMK184)

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.

I Wish is a collection of 18 double-sided papers filled with holiday and winter imagery perfect for the upcoming season. And is it just me or do those colors look like they will match the set of Silk Paints Rachelle pulled together for her layout? Actually yes they do – had to go check colors – perfect for these papers as well.

As for upcoming products and kits… We have kits coming from Di Garling and Pascale B. New chipboard from Dusty Attic and 2Crafty. We also have the new 7Dots Collections on order – expect them in the coming weeks.

Think that’s it for now. Certainly enough to feast your eyes on! Thanks for checking in.

New kits from Gabrielle + New Products!

Love Summertime in the Garden by Gabrielle Pollacco (Red)

Hello everyone,

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.

Blessed by Gabrielle Pollacco for Dusty Attic

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.

Picture Perfect by Gabrielle Pollacco

Picture Perfect by Gabrielle Pollacco, MMK177

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.

Picture Perfect by Gabrielle Pollacco, MMK177

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…

Picture Perfect Bonus Sample MMK177

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.

So lots more to come. Check in.
