I’ve been waiting for this day for so long, I can barely hold this news in. The much loved Gabrielle Pollacco is back with a brand new kit!! We’ve missed her terribly and I’m thrilled to welcome her back. Here’s a look at her new kit, “Memory Captured”, which is available for purchase now:
In case you haven’t heard, we’ve made a few changes to simplify the process of purchasing a kit. Instead of offering “Basic”, “Plus”, and “Complete” versions, we now offer one basic version of each kit. If you would like to add on any extra products to complete the layout, suggested ones will be listed in the description. These products will be sold separately so you can choose specific ones.

That’s all from me today– I can’t wait to see what you think!
Bridget here with you today to share some big Scrapbook Diaries news with you. Our dear friend, Tina Ollett, has created a gorgeous kit for us once again! This kit is a special one, as Tina has taught it to store owners around the globe. We’re so excited to finally be able to offer it to all of you.
Instead of offering “Basic”, “Plus”, and “Complete” versions of kits, we’ve decided to simplify the process for you. Now, we offer one basic version of each kit. If you would like to add on any extra products to complete the layout, suggested ones will be listed in the description. These products will be sold separately so you can choose specific ones.
In addition, I’m pleased to announce that we will have many more kits for you in the coming weeks. Traditionally, our kits tend to sell out quickly, so there are a couple different ways to stay in the loop. Be sure to “Like” us on Facebook or follow us on Instagram for all the latest updates.
That’s all from me. Can’t wait for you to see what we have in store!
Finally back with a new kit. Gabi has done it again by making a gorgeous layout for us to follow along and create our own version. Her latest kit, Moments Captured, uses a bunch of products that create a layout that can be used for all sorts of photos. Gabi uses an adorable photo of foxes but I am thinking it would also make a great masculine page for the boys/men in our lives.
See for yourself….
It was fun to play a long. Not too crazy on mixed media – a bit of Distress Paint that was easy to paint on as a wash in the background. Al the elements just easy to work with and makes for one fabulous layout.
Here’s a look at the sample I made. The chippie word set does come with another word “Perfect”. You can add on bonus page or alter the main page layout.
Hope you like. We will be working on another Rachelle Sigurdson kit real soon.
New products coming in very soon… 49 and Market of course as well as Prima!!!! We’ll keep you posted just as soon as we have it all posted.
Gabrielle Pollacco is back!!! Her latest kit, Love, reminds us of Gabi’s Shabby Chic style filled with whispy romance! And while we might not all have a stunningly gorgeous daughter in a wedding gown, I am sure you can all find a perfectly fitting photo for this page….
In true Gabi fashion, she mixes elements that layer seamless together to make you feel like you are part of an enchanted forest. The kit features papers from LemonCraft mixes with 49 and Market flowers and those Ribbit green Prills really pack a punch (Prills can be purchased on their own or as part of the complete version of the kit). Be sure to read full product description for details and which version comes with which products to ensure you have what you need on hand.
I created a bonus sample using just 2 extra sheets of paper and the Dusty Attic chipboard piece, Lacey Nameplate (NOTE: I cut the piece in half to length it under the photos). There were a bunch of leftover flowers which made it quite easy to not add a lot of extra product to create a second page. Hope you like…
There you have it – the latest kit from Gabrielle Pollacco and The Scrapbook Diaries. We’re working on more kits. Some new products due to trickle in over the next few weeks.
We are having a little promotion – a free gift with each purchase this month! Always fun to be surprised at what you might receive. No coupon code necessary!
I guess it is no surprise that Gerry van Gent is one of my favorite designers. Not only is she crazy talented but she has a heart of gold! So when I say Gerry… we are missing you… would you mind doing another kit? She replies – Of course!
Her latest creation for us features a bunch of 49 and Market products from the Cottage Life collection (I Have to say this is one of my all time favorite collections – I LOVE the colors in it!). But anyway – let’s get back to the kit… Gerry provided us with step-by-step color photos and direction. Yes, these are the clearest directions we have ever offered! Unlike myself, Gerry has a clear, level head and knows how to get directions across in a concise and precise manner. English may not be her first language but she does way better with directions than I do. So thank you for that Gerry!! 😉
Here it is…
Thank you Gerry!!! It’s just fabulous!
Another thing I love about this kit – is that it isn’t messy. Sure it’s layered with beautiful details that make it one to cherish but if you look closely there’s no gesso, no paint…. just a hint of some distress ink (not included). I can love a mess but sometimes… you just want to do your thing. This one allows you to move forward without waiting. I loved that this time (I love all our kits and sometimes a mess is fine or I don’t mind when a layout that takes a week to complete- all depends on my mood I suppose but with the holidays approaching – we don’t have all the time in the world right now). Have I ranted enough?
Using 2 more sheets of paper and just a few extra flowers, I pulled this bonus sample out…
Not too shabby if I do say so myself. In fact – it’s a favorite for now for sure!! I love these colors and that photo of my boys… well, makes a Mama’s heart sing even if I have used it over and over again on samples.
So I hope you enjoy this kit as much as I do. gerry’s work is always impressive and fun to follow along. She gets the wheels turning so you look at things in a new light.
Not sure what new products are scheduled to come in soon but we will have new kits from Gabrielle Pollacco and Pascale B. I know I have been promising that Pascale B kit… I promise it is coming soon. Gabi’s kit will of course be another fan favorite too – she uses pinks and greens in a delicate way that really packs a punch.
Rachelle Sigurdson is known for her abundant use of chipboard which make her layouts standout from all others. This one uses a bunch of chipboard but not sure we’ve ever had a kit with 4 full packs of flowers before! OK Stacey Young probably did do that but this is a first for Rachelle. 🙂
Remember Today Autumn is a stunning layout perfect for the season! It features many products from 49 and Market. Have a look…
Weather Pumpkin Picking or giving Thanks, this layout is sure to be a timeless favorite! I for one had so much fun with this layout (I always do when working on a kit from Rachelle). To be inside the mind of a creative genius is always fun! Thank you rachelle.
Since we had a bunch of extra flowers, I had to do a bonus sample. As to not totally overload this kit with all 49 and Market products, I added some Maja Design papers. I always love to show how you can mix and match product lines. Speaking of Maja Design… we just got a box of their brand new Christmas/Winter line – will be added to the store this week.
Its an old pic of the kids (I really need to print some new photos).
Please note, this kit does have some fussy cutting. If you aren’t up to the task, don’t do it! It adds to dimension but overall design won’t be compromised. I for one love fussy cutting but I know there are others that get a headache at the thought (Elyse) 🙂
Thank you once again Rachelle for another fabulous kit! Rachelle keeps busy which keeps us busy – we have a few more kits from her lined up. But next kit will be from another fabulously talented lady, Pascale B. Pascale created a watercolor panel project for us. Hoping to have it posted next week.
New products that arrived and will be added to storefront soon… Joyous Winterdays from Maja Design as well as a LOT of Dusty Attic chipboards and stencils. Think the last boxes of Dusty Attic to arrive catch us up on their latest releases!
Some people just have it, that Timeless look!! In true Di Garling fashion, she brings it with her latest kit.
A beautiful masterpiece! Di gives so many tips and tricks in the accompanying video (access granted with purchase of kit). This is one of those kits that shows you how to alter products on hand to work for your color scheme. For example, Di creates her own unique embellishment by stamping leaf images on to green cardstock and then fussy cutting them. We didn’t have any green cardstock on hand to stamp some images for you so we substituted with plain green leaves. But if you have Gabi’s Texture Stamp Set and a scrap of green cardstock… you will be in business to do the same!
Be sure to read kit details for what is and isn’t included in the kit as well as they two buying options.
Thanks Di for a fabulous kit and layout!!!
With a few extra pieces and some left overs from Di’s page, I pulled this together. Quite happy if I do say so myself. Hope you guys like too…
I used the same techniques Di showed us. The left over pieces had a bit of a greenish grey look to them so I took that question to alter the color palette. I will note that I used “Iced Spruce” Distress Ink instead of the Faded Jeans on the background papers.
We recently added the Brand new Rusty Autumn paper collection from 49 and Market. It’s the prefect collection to highlight those amazing Halloween and Autumn photos! Hope you guys like it!!!
Also new to the store is a series of ScrapFx chippies. Here’s a little look at just a few….
You can view our complete selection of ScrapFx here.
So what’s next? Good question. 🙂 We’ll continue to add kits and new products as they come in. Next kit in the works is from the very talented Rachelle Sigurdson! You know it will be packed with Dusty Attic chipboard.
Oh my… 3 months since our last blog post. Hopefully you didn’t think we were out of business. And hopefully you are following us on Facebook to know all the updates,comings and goings of products. But regardless, I am posting today because I have very exciting news…
As I am sure you know, I always love Pascale’s work. She just has such a way of melding colors and elements perfectly. This kit, Cherish Moment, is no different! In fact the colors were so expertly picked by Pascale – I mean spot on! If you are working with the Dreamscapes collection from 7Dots Studios, note that Rubilite, Mustard Green and Cedar Wood are the perfect accompanying Twinkling H2O colors! If you are getting this kit, you can of course opt for the “Plus” or “Complete” versions – both of which include these colors.
Have a look…
Does that layout speak to you the way it does me? I love it! And I think the accompanying bonus sample proves it..
Thank you Pascale! It was great fun to dive back in to one of your kits. In fact, Pascale has been busy -we will have another Pascale kit in a few weeks. My fault for not keeping up but we will get there. Next kit is from Di Garling.
New products continue to be added weekly. You can always check out our posts on Facebook.
As always Gabi mixes just the right elements to make for a masterpiece! She uses ‘Blue Patina Perfect Pearls’ from Ranger. This powder has hues that just make that blue area pop! In addition she uses the Sand and Sea Layered Embellishment pack to add detailed elements without the fussy cutting! This sheet packs A LOT of elements (actually 50 pieces in total – 26 epoxy coated bubbles and 24 shaped pieces).
I should also point out that Gabi uses one of the stencils she created for The Crafters Workshop. The Tile Mania stencil is one of my favorites for adding quick texture and detail! You can have a look at all of Gabi’s stencils and stamps here.
When you purchase the kit, you get access to the video tutorial where Gabi takes us through her journey in creating the page above. Thank you Gabi!
To create a bonus page, it didn’t take much more than a sheet of extra paper. The Layered Embellishments and Floral Mixology Pack pf flowers included in the kit really leave you with quite a bit to work with.
Here’s a look at my page…
So much fun working on this kit – yes I may be a bit partial but I hope you think so too!!!
Hope you enjoy!! We’ll be back soon with plenty more kits and products over the next few weeks. School is official out for the summer but kids are going to camp so hoping to be quite productive!!!
