G&G Kt is Here!

Beautiful by Gabrielle Pollacco

I must confess… I am living the dream! Married to a wonderful man, three fabulous kids and a business that is all I have dreamt of.  The Scrapbook Diaries started several years ago when I began teaching at local stores in the New York area. Somewhere along the line I started wanted to learn more, try new things and was always in aw of different designers works. The website started and some very talented designers agreed to make online how-to videos for us.  It has evolved in to the site it is today.

Why all the rambling? Well…. When you are lucky enough to have some of the friends I do, you get the most talented, amazing designers in the world that come together.  From time to time we do what my kids call a “Mash-Up”.  Today’s kit, the G&G Kit is a double kit in which Gabrielle Pollacco and Gerry van Gent have each created a layout and tutorial for us. They use the Spring and Fall watercolor pencil set from Prima marketing as their color base. Each one uses different techniques and different colors fro the set to create two very different pages.  And as always, both Gabi and Gerry give us such great insight in to their creative process.

The layouts…..

So different and both so amazing! You might notice a common element among the layouts, the stamp set.  The kit also uses Gerry’s Flower Stamp Set that she designed exclusive for the Scrapbook Diaries. the stamp set has three stamp clusters on the 4″ x 6″ sheet.  Perfect floral elements for so many crafting needs.

THANK YOU GERRY AND GABRIELLE!!!!!  Amazing designers and amazing friends!

The kit comes in Basic, Basic plus watercolor pencils and Complete. Basic has al the papers, flowers and trinkets to make these two pages as well as at least two additional pages (bonus samples shown below).  The Complete kit also comes with Gerry’s Flower Stamp Set, 6×6 Butterfly Collage Stencil (Crafters workshop) and the Spring & Fall Watercolor Pencil Set (Prima).

US customers – when purchasing complete kit (or for any order over $100 use coupon SHIPFREE at checkout).

International Customers – when buying this kit, click on the option of – International Complete.  This will include cost of complete kit as well as shipping (you can add some light weight items to your order (chipboard, stencils, stamps, etc.) for this price – if ordering heavy items like otis or a lot of paper, we will need to charge more). If choosing this option, click “Bill Me Actual Shipping” at checkout – we won’t charge you but it is the only way the system will process correctly.

Hope that all makes sense.

A look at the bonus sample pages (no video direction – I did take some photos along the way that you will receive in printouts.

New Prima!

Amazing how I could forget to make a blog post about the new Prima!!!!  As is usual around here, he hoard things. We do this not for selfish reasons but with making so many kits… we tend to put stuff away and work it onto our site that way. Well when it came to the Cartographer Collection by Frank Garcia and Ingvild Bolme’s release, I knew we had to order a lot as these are hot items.  So… we did just that and even managed to add them to the store in a timely manor.  These items will be shipping out from us beginning this Thursday, February 6th. Please note flowers will be added in another week or so along with some more Prima goodies. Of course if you’re looking for something and don’t see it, send us a note and we’re happy to try and locate for you.

A few enticing pics…

Prima, I am Delighted!

Just watched the latest Prima video with another new line, Delight from Jodi Lee. Jodi Lee and Frank Garcia are too cute and funny. Anyway.. the new lines seems amazing and we plan on ordering it all (ok maybe not quite as I can’t afford all of it but certainly a lot). 🙂 We’ll aim to have pre-orders up by the end of this week.

On to other exciting news… too many fabulous designer kits coming soon.  I just received photos from Kasia, Natalie and Lene. And let me just say – wow!   then we alos have two Live with Prima kits coming out soon.  One is for Kasia’s Treasure Canvas which aired in June.  The other is from Frank Garcia which is scheduled to air a little later this month.

Lots of moving pieces on my end but will work to get all of these things uploaded to the site. Here’s a little peek at Kasia’s new kit (30)…

2 more kits for the week

TGIF!  It’s been a busy one with holidays, work and family.  I guess just about the same can be said of all weeks.

We have two new kits to end the week off with…

Fairy Rhymes.  Love this one. The Prima papers by Jodi Lee are gorgeous.  Jodi’s style is so unique and easy to spot.  One of my all time favorite lines was the Butterfly Garden line she did for Pink Paislee.  Speaking of Pink Paislee… I need to update the shop with some new products that came in.  Hmm…how easy to divert. Back to the subject at hand… the new Fairy Rhymes Layout Kit….

286 1 Fairy Rhymes Left Page 286 2 Fairy Rhymes Right Page

Love the color in this one along with these fairies… Just too cute.  This kit involves a little fancy cutting but nothing too crazy.  I might be saying that because I find fancy cutting relaxing.

And because the last birthday kit was such a kit, we decided to offer a similar one…Party Time…

Hope you like the new kits. Have a great weekend.
