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.

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.

Love Life Mixed Media Kit by Rachelle Sigurdson

Love Life Double Page Kit by Rachelle Sigurdson MMK183 left

I Love Life and I love Rachelle Sigurdson’s works!!!!  Are you like me?  If so, this one is for you. It is no easy task or quick turn-around but I so enjoyed the process and results! Rachelle’s latest kit for The Scrapbook Diaries is FILLED with chipboard pieces. In fact you might not even notice all of them at first glance. You see all those tiny little flowers?  They’re chipboard!

Can you take it? Love the details!!!!!  Layers and layers of chipboard! In fact, Jennifer at Dusty Attic created 3 1/2 sheets of 12″x12″ chipboard that are so jammed pack. Pieces include….

Ivy Flourish, Heart Swirly, Lavender #2, Full Set of Barb Wire Frames, Vintage Frame #2, 2 Film Strips Small, Mini Chicken Wire, 2 Packs of Mini Blossoms, Grass Cluster #1, Foliage #2, and We Laughed (Rachelle used Claire’s name but not included), Doodads #5, String Frames, Extra Barb Wire Frame, 2 Birds of Paradise, Swirly Vine #5, Foliage #2, Hashtag Saying, Word Disk Love Life, Ticket, Feather Charm #4, Flower Layer Small.
There’s even a few extra pieces that could be used for a mother page. Chipboard pieces are covered in Silk paints and Crackle Accents… it all just works seamlessly together. I loved working on this kit! Hope you do too.
Also just to mention we posted the latest line of paper from Maja Design, I Wish.
I Wish Collection from Maja Design

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.

What’s new in store? We are so happy to present to you some of the most pretty chipboards ever! ‘Scrapiniec’ as always creates most delicate and precious pieces!

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.

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.

The stencil that comes with the basic kit, 4×4 Repeat Tile Remnant Stencil (Crafters Workshop), will be an awesome stencil to add to your collections. It’s a tiny one that packs a punch and makes a statement with the varying harlequin shapes.

I know it’s been a while since we posted a kit but trying to get back on track. In fact, I a the only one who has been slacking… our designers are keeping busy. We have kits to come from all your favorites…. Di Garling, Gabrielle Pollacco, Delaina Burns, Elena Tretiakova, Frank Garcia and Rachelle Sigurdson.

Family by Gerry van Gent MMK174

Beautiful family and beautiful layout! Thank you Gerry!

It’s truly one of those kits you want to make over and over and if not, you’ll certainly use the techniques learned over and over.

I tried living up to Gerry’s work for the bonus on this one. Loe the layout but might have gone a bit heavy on the floral cluster at the bottom. Good thing is you don’t have to do what I did. 🙂

True Harmony Bonus Sample MMK174

Please read full product detail for what is included and differences in the variations being sold. Access to Online Tutorial provided with purchase of kit.

Hope you like as much as I do.

Lots of new products coming in – Brand New chippies from all our favorite companies as well as the new paper collection from Blue Fern. We’ll get it posted as soon as we can. Trying to keep up.

Just a heads up, we are running a few days behind on orders. Please be patient, we’ll do our best to get caught up soon.

New kit from Pascale B

Smile by Pascale B (MMK173)

Pascale B knows how to create a layout that is filled with soft details and beautiful colors! Her lets kit, Smile, is absolutely no different.  This layout is just breathtaking. Perfect for highlighting a favorite memory, a vantage photo or just about anything else near and dear to your heart.

The details and techniques Pascale uses really put her in the leagues of world renowned designers. Very happy to have her as part of our shop and thankful she shares these techniques with us!

When you purchase the kit, you will get the materials used to follow her along on her tutorial.  The complete version includes colors and other mediums. Be sure to read full product description so you order the right version of the kit for your needs.

With just a few added products, we created a sample page using Pascale’s techniques and leftovers.

I Love You Bonus Sample MMK173
I Love You Bonus Sample MMK173

I must say I don’t usually get fancy with photos but just couldn’t help myself. I used left over scraps for the mats to ft my photos but it’s really easy to adapt to whatever photo or photos you have with the various pieces of paper. The little “I Love You” strip came from the bottom of the Maja Design paper – love that they give you little sayings and designs on their tabs!

If you like half as much as I do, be sure to order soon. We are pretty limited on this kit as there were some older items that we can no longer get more of. Don’t worry if you miss out, Pascale will be creating plenty more for us because we use can’t get enough of her!!!

Thank you,

You’ve Left an Imprint from Di Garling

You've Left An Imprint by Di Garling

Alas… A NEW kit!!!!! I know I have been on hiatus lately – all for good cause. We have been working hard on a brand new manufacturing company. All to finally be revealed this week!!!!  Add the new wholesale business to an existing business and a family… forgive me for the lack of kits as of late! 🙂 But rest assured -we are getting  back on track with everything.

Today we get to show you the latest from Di Garling, You’ve Left an Imprint! We think this layout is sure to leave an imprint. In true Di fashion, it’s loaded with textures and colors perfectly fitting for so many occasions.  Di takes us on her journey through a video tutorial.  You get access to this tutorial once you purchase the kit.

You've Left An Imprint by Di Garling
You’ve Left An Imprint by Di Garling (MMK172)

As always Di really knows how and what to mix together to come up with a stunning page!  Thank you Di!

Following Di’s lead, I pulled some Maja Design papers and picked up with the purple range. Here’s a look at the bonus sample I made…

Enjoy the Sunshine Bonus Sample MMK172
Enjoy the Sunshine Bonus Sample (MMK172)

As typical these days, we made a basic and complete version of the kit to suit your needs. We included the Hydrangea Chalk Edger in the basic kit since it’s spot on for color and distressing the edges of papers.  We left the vintage Pink Chalk Edger as part of the complete kit since many of you might have it from previous Di Garling kits. We also left the Sketch Grid Stencil to of the kit as many of you might have from previous kits or can substitute for a similar textured stencil.  For Di’s layout and design, any similar type texture would work just the same!

More kits to come… next up a Gerry van Gent layout!  I always love Gerry’s kits as there’s always something new and outside the box type thinking that makes a layout pop! Also have layouts and kits from Pascale B and Delaina Burns. And once again. they will not disappoint! I must say – we have some rocking designers!!!!! I should also mention we will be debuting a new designer to the Scrapbook Diaries line up… Nathmaël. If you are not familiar with Nathmaël, you might want to check her out as you will want to know her. 🙂  In fact, you don’t want to miss out on any of our new kits coming soon!

And a little more on our new business venture… we’ve had a lot of interest from other stores who want to carry our stamps and we had some ideas of new paper ranges and flowers so…. we are opening a wholesale scrapbooking business. Of course consumers will be able to buy the complete range through The Scrapbook Diaries but now your favorite local stores and other online retailers will be able to carry them as well!  So be sure to check back later this week for the full announcement and details!

Thanks,

Janene
