Cherish by Gabrielle Pollacco

Cherish Mixed Media Kit by Gabrielle Pollacco MMK164

Gabrielle Pollacco has another fabulous layout turned in to kit for us. As always Gabrielle’s sense of style and composition are always on point.  She mixes up a variety of colors and mediums to create one stunning page! See for yourself…

The kit comes complete with so many fun pieces to work with from all over the world – mostly Poland.  Do you know how many great scrapbook companies there are in Poland?  Some of my all time favorites – 7Dots, Scrapiniec Wycinanka, Lemon-Craft, UHK Gallery, Galeria Papieru and more!  This kit includes products from just about all of those companies. In addition Gabrielle uses her Organic Matter Mask designed for The Crafters Workshop. A great texture for use on so many projects. If you don’t have white texture paste, Gabi provides a wonderful homemade recipe you can whip up on your own. You can find the recipe here.

As usual, I made a bonus sample page to go along with this kit. And once again, I had a good time. Did I go overboard? 🙂

I love how it turned out, hope you do too. I love the crain but if that isn’t your thing… there’s more than enough extra pieces to add your own favorite element or leave out all together. Then again, you can go crazy and do your own thing all together. My only word of caution is scissors…. if you are going to cut the vine up like I did, e sure to use a scissor that can handle it or one that is already knocked up from cutting wire. Tim Holtz scissors fromTonic are awesome and withstand A LOT!

Forgot to mention the variations in the kit. I already received a few emails that people were confused.

  • Basic – no Shimmerz or stencil.
  • Plus – included the 2 watercolor pots from Shimmerz that Gabi used (Strawberry Fields and Ruby Lost Her Slippers) – don’t you just love their names?
  • Complete – includes both Shimmerz plus the 6×6 Organic Matter Mask.

Hope that helps clarify things. We try to offer different versions so you get and pay for what you need and nothing more.

 

New Products – just posted Courtship Lane from Blue Fern Studios!!! We all love their papers and this is just another fabulous collection and great color palette to work with form the EVER talented Michelle Singh.  Have a peek….

That’s it for now. New kits coming next week – Delaina Burns and Rachelle Sigurdson!

Oriental Garden by Pascale B

Oriental garden by Pascale B (MMK138)

I always love posting new kits. Pascale B. has such a unique look. One that uses mediums and color to pack a punch and exemplify the photo she has on hand.  Oriental Garden does just that!

With a mix of mediums and Twinkling H2O colors, Pascale manages to keep the flow of her photo on her page making it shine!

As with all kits we do our best to pair up the materials you will need to follow along and complete the project at hand but try not to overload you for materials you do not need as price does become a determination. It’s always a juggling act. This was one of those hard kits as I don’t know who buying the kit has all the “usual” mediums used – clear gesso, black, gesso, etc. Be sure to read the product description so you know what you are getting. If you don’t have one of the non-included items, just add it in notes. We want you to be happy and explore new designers, looks, etc.

With that in mind, I got to do a bonus sample. Had a good time even if I did branch off a bit in style. Hope I did it just to Pascale’s…

I played off the black element/texture in the back by using black lace. I happen to have some butterflies lying around that I thought looked great with the colors so I cheated a bit by using them but like how my page turned out. Hope you do too.

In addition to the new kit from Pascale B., we added a few new pieces of Blue Fern Studios. A lot of the new pieces are from yours truly. Always fun to make up some things and see them come to life…

The Double Swirl Frames are available in both large and small sets…

Quick post for tonight – never as I plan but it’s something.  Added a few new Blue Fern Studios chippies I’ve had lying around. Here’s just a few….

Find the complete list here.

In addition an amazing find… In fact this is a punch I have been in search for ever since I stumbled upon the amazingly talented Heather Jacob’s blog. Heather’s style and layouts are simply divine!  I love her work and it goes without saying that she has an open-ended invitation to design kits for us. In fact, we’d be beyond honored. But in the meantime… :)…. Heather has allowed us to show you the use of the amazing punch I have finally been able to stock.  It’s an older punch from EK Success. Not sure if it has been recirculated or what but needless to say I got my hands on some and couldn’t be happier. Here’s why….

I know  – she’s amazing right?  And while you may not be able to see her work at The Scrapbook Diaries (yet – I will always hold out hope) 🙂 – you can totally check her work out on her blog as well as the Dusty Attic blog for more of her work.

Thank you Heather for allowing us to publish your layout.

Have I gotten to my point after ranting?  Here’s the punch, now available for sale…

Still to come… a bunch of Dusty Attic. Need to update the site as we got a delivery yesterday of about 20 new sku’s and refills on a lot we sold out of.

That palette of Prima is coming tomorrow!!! I will be busy sorting and posting.  No new flowers but all the Finnabair stuff, stamps, Archivist paper by Frank Garcia and Butterlfy Collection by Jodie-Lee. Lots more.

New kit next week – Nadia Cannizzo!

Thanks for checking in.

New Blue Fern Studios – Love Story and more

Blue Fern Studios Love Story Collection

A quick post for tonight.  Finally got around to adding some new Blue Fern Studios to the storefront. The beautiful new paper collection, Love Story, by the talented Michele Singh hits the store.  This collection on its surface appears to be romance/Valentine’s day related but it’s so not. Personally, my fav’s or the neutral/green tones. Great images and layering going on here as usual.

See for yourself…

You can find the entire collection here.  In addition to the paper line, Blue Fern is releasing and debuting 4 brand new stamp sets. Each measuring 4″ x 6″ with several elements to each plate.  They are clear, polymer craft stamps made in the US.

And of course wouldn’t be a Blue Fern order without some new chippies added to the list. Do have to say this batch was short on new items but we stocked up on a lot of fan favorites and ones we had previously sold out of.  But for a look at some new, click here.

That’s it for me for now. New soon – a beautiful mixed media kit from the fabulous Nadia Caanizzo and a mini album from me featuring Graphic45’s Timeto Flourish line.

Oh how did I almost sign off without adding my excitement for the week.. Got an email that Simple Stories is on it’s way. Not usually my thing but the Memory Planner System they came out with… LOVE!!! NEED!  Can’t wait for. Order just about all of it and all the album colors. Cant decide which one I need to have but know this baby will come in handy and can’t wait to start planning and organizing! So yes, will be adding it all to the store soon.

Habe a great night!
