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.

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.

Beautiful by Rachelle Sigurdson

Beautiful by Rachelle Siggurdson

To say I am excited to bring you the first kit from the very talented Rachelle Sigurdson is an understatement! I have been a long time fan of Rachelle’s work.  Rachelle is known for layers and layers. It’s really no wonder how she got to be a design team member for both Maja Design and Dusty Attic chipboard. The mix of Rachelle, Dusty Attic and Maja Design… well how can you go wrong?

Her first kit for us, Beautiful if just that! With step-by-step color photos, Rachelle takes us on her journey as she created this layout.  She breaks down all the steps for us. Take a look…

I am sure looking at her layout you might be saying – did she hand stitch that layout? And the answer would be yes – well sort of – she did get some help. 🙂 If you aren’t in to hand stitching you can use a sewing machine for a “similar” look or a journaling pen.  Honestly I would have used my sewing machine but learned the kids broke it so as you can see on the bonus sample, I used a journaling pen to make some faux stitching lines. Certainly not as nice as Rachelle’s labor of love but it does work if you don’t have the time or want to do the work.

And here’s a look at the bonus sample I did with a few extra sets of paper and some extra elements…

Wonderful Bonus Sample (MMK148)

There you have it! Kit includes materials needed to follow printed directions to create your own layout in Rachelle’s signature style (no video instruction).

Thank you for stopping in. As usual we have lots lined up. Next kit to come – Marta Lapkowska! Another beautiful layout. This one featuring Dreamy Morning papers from LemonCraft. Gabrielle Pollacco will be back first thing next week with a don’t want to miss kit featuring Autumn Anthology papers from Blue Fern Studios.

Thanks,

Janene

Lots Going On – New Kit, New Products

Adore by Lisa Griffith MMK109

We’ve been busy around here despite the holiday season and everything else busy going on.

We have a brand new kit bu the ever talented Lisa Griffith. In fact, this is Lasa’s last kit for The Scrapbook Diaries. We’ll miss her fabulous vintage flair and wish her well in all her future endeavors.  But before she goes, she brings us another kit filled with color and beautiful details. For this one, she uses one of my favorite lines, Ombre Dream by Blue Fern Studios.

The pinks and purples in this one really pack a punch.  The kit comes just about complete. We offered a basic and complete version – only difference i the complete kit has the 6×6 Prima Wall #3 Stencil.  Basic comes with the paint, mist, pear, chippies and more.  It’s a beautiful layout and fun to follow along the step-by-step door photos (no videos on this one).  Here’s a pic at the bonus sample I came up with to coordinate….

When you purchase this kit this month, you’ll get a free pack of Thickers from American Crafts as a little thank you and a… “tis the season”.

In addition to this new kit, we also got some fabulous new products in stock.  If you follow Gabrielle Pollacco like I am sure most of you do, you might have caught a look at her latest layout… Love Completely. As always Gabrielle packs a punch and brings on the fabulous products to create her masterpieces. Ironically enough, we got two deliveries this week.. Maja Design and Dusty Attic. You can stock up on some of the pieces she uses as well as a bunch of others you are sue to see down the road. We have the complete Nyhavn Collection. It’s beautiful and so delicate like all Maja papers and the background are just amazing! And Maja even came out with a collection pack of their own for this limited edition release with a bonus paper not otherwise available!

As for Dusty Attic… we brought in a whole lot more…. all sorts of pieces. Here’s just a few…

We still have Blue Fern Studios chipboard to add to the store and an album kit from Elena Morgun before the year domes to an end. Can I fit it all in? I sure hope so. Once the year starts we;ll have lots of exciting announcements… New designers and new products!!!

Thanks,

Glimpse by Gabrielle Pollacco

Glimpse by Gabrielle Pollacco (MMK106)

She hardly needs and introduction, what do I say month after month… After all, anything Gabrielle Pollacco does is AMAZING!  Am I right or what?  Her latest kit, Glimpse, is nothing short of beautiful!!! Perfect for so may photos as the color scheme works just about anything – a birds nest like Gabi features, a cut of hot chocolate… loved ones on a holiday night (or morning)… just saying..anything will work with this one. How could it not? The kit features papers from Maja Design and a chipboard vine frame from Dusty Attic. All perfect pieces for a great layout. And not only does it showcase Maja papers perfectly Gabi does such a great job of mixing up papers from two different lines. She see papers from A Gift For You and Coffee in the Arbour. Contradicting lines in theory but as with so many Maja papers, they blend seamless! See for yourself.

Love it!  I always love them what can I say?  Well this I know… after following Gabi along on her tutorial and making my own… it was EASY to make a bonus sample on this one. The DeVine Chipboard frame from Dusty Attic has a bunch of extra pieces. I used the smaller frame and the corner piece (there’s even a second corner piece you can use on a third layout). Just love how it turned out…

In hindsight, maybe I could have added some more of the brown ink but I do love how these pages are contradicting in light and darkness and yet both complimenting each other. Enough on that ramble – hopefully anyone reading this knows what I mean with that one -coffee hasn’t kicked in yet this morning. 🙂

The kit is packed with yummy goodness… Maja Design papers (6 sheets in fact), Dusty Attic Chipboard DeVine Set and a custom set of chipboard Blue Fern Studios did for us. Mix that all up with some Prima flowers and… can you go wrong? We included a Chalk Edger Ink from Prima in Knotted Wood but not the Moss Lawn (green) one as it was used in Gabi’s previous Captured Harvest kit. If you didn’t get that one, no worries, you can order one here or use any green ink you might have on hand.

What more could you want? Well we want to say a little Thank You to you our customers…. we’re throwing in a blending tool from Tim Holtz/Ranger. Gabi uses one on her video showing how the tool blends the ink in to your page effortlessly.

So thank you for making 2014 the best year ever for The Scrapbook Diaries. We’ve got big things planned for 2015 but we’re not done with 2014 just yet!  Lined up…. This Friday Frank Garcia bring us another exclusive mini album. This one too features the Gif From You line by Maja Design. But unlike Gabi’s, there’s no mistaking it is a Christmas Album showcasing a winter wonderland. And next week, another layout from the very talented Keren Tamir that you are sure to like.

So be sure to check back often or friend us on Facebook so you don’t miss a thing.

Thanks,

Janene
