I know you guys have been waiting because the emails have been rolling in… yes, we have just posted another beautiful kit from the amazingly talented Gabrielle Pollacco. Gabi’s sense of earthiness mixed with romance brings a unique look that is undeniably all her own.  Aren’t we lucky she shares her tips and tricks time and again so we can look like pro’s too?  I know I am.

The latest…. Happy

Beautiful, right/  And that photo.. well we should all be so lucky to have photos that look like that.

As is customary with our kits, I try to include a bonus sample for mixed media layout kits. So here’s mine… I followed along in the same manner Gabi did on the featured layout with the exception of a lot of fussy cutting. Thought the background paper I included needed a bit more so the Green Cat Story paper was the perfect addition. didn’t have enough on hand to include a full sheet so you get a half sheet but it’s more than enough to cut out a hole bunch of branches.  Anyway… here it is…

Family by Janene Meyerowitz – Bonus Sample to MMK105 by Gabrielle Pollacco

For this kit we included three purchasing options… Basic (materials only), Basic Plus (materials plus 2 oz. bottle of Shimmerz Moody Mauve) and Complete (materials, Moody Mauve and Corset Toper Stamp designed by Gabrielle herself). We know a bunch of you already purchased this stamp so wanted to make sure you’d be able to purchase just what you need.

In addition I do have a note to those of you who ordered Gabrielle’s last kit, Always… I inadvertently forgot to include the lavender background paper I used on my bonus sample. A great customer pointed it out to me. It was at the point about half the kits went out.  So please if I forgot to include in your kit, just add in comments when purchasing this kit and I’ll send along.

That’s about it for today. Coming this week… new Blue Fern Studios and frank Garcia’s last Live with Prima kit. Hoping to have his kit posted on Friday. Will see how the week progresses. Oh and Beauty and Grunge is coming.. the designers have been busy.  Think you will all like what you see.  Since it’s around the corner I guess I should let you know the remaining two designers… we previously announced Georgia Heald and Olga Heldwein as two of the four designers.  Today, I’ll let you know fellow Aussie Stacey Young will be part of the kit. And when Stacey’s involved you KNOW you will be getting a kit loaded with beautiful flowers.  Yes, there’s more flowers in this kit than we’ve ever seen before!  In addition we have a new designer added to The Scrapbook Diaries… Maiko Kosugi from Japan. Maiko brings another take on beauty and flowers even though she, like Stacey, both have boys. Bring on the flowers and  beautiful layouts for the boys!  I think you are all going to be really excited when we release all the details next week.
