Forever by Gabrielle Pollacco

Forever by Gabrielle Pollacco

Happy Monday!!!!  Can you believe it is Monday morning and I am prepared to post a new kit – on time? Shocking I Know but it is true. And this one… AMAZING (aren’t they all?)! I love autumn and any hint of it! Gabrielle Pollacco brings us a fabulous layout which is perfect for any occasion. But with mushrooms, burlap and owls, well, it speaks autumn to me! Autumn Anthology, the collection of papers used for this kit has to be one of my favorite collections. Filled with beautiful layers and colors… just awesome. You are sure to see several kits using it as we can’t get enough of it!

Back to Gabrielle’s kit, Forever….

Love it? Of course you do! It is beautiful! and I should add – oh so fun to follow Gabrielle along on her online tutorial to make your own! The details… Every little bit adds to make this a perfect layout. Read the description of products included in the kit. I think the Black Cherry Soda Creameeze from Shimmerz is the perfect match! You might not need the complete kit – if you purchased Captured Harvest in the past, it used the same North Star Stencil from The Crafters Workshop.

I really had so much fun. Think you can tell by my spin on the bonus sample? In looking at the collection papers, I didn’t really see another similarly colored paper to use so I risked it and went with a white based paper and hoped for the best. Well – the Creameeze blended it perfectly! LOVE LOVE LOVE….

I couldn’t find my North Star stencil so I used the Mini Raven Mosaic one.

In addition to this beautiful kit, we also have three new stamp sets from the ever talented Gabrielle Pollacco….

Thanks for stopping in. Enjoy the day and week!

Gerry van Gent’s Brings Us a Set of Stamps!

Gerry van Gent's Flower Stamp Set

Gerry van Gent has long been known for her detailed works and layered wonders. In fact you may have seen a kit or two (more on their way) here at The Scrapbook Diaries.  Gerry’s details in her works are beyond amazing. Stamps have long played an intricate role in these details.

We are so excited to announce three new stamp sets exclusive to The Scrapbook Diaries in which Gerry shares some of her favorite images and pieces perfect for layering on your works! Here they are…

Gerry van Gent's Butterfly Stamp Set

Each stamp set is a plate of 4″ x 6″ – made from clear polymer in the US. These stamps are perfect for all of your crafting needs.

Thank you Gerry for more AMAZING products!!!!

In addition to adding Gerry’s stamps to the Storefront, we’ve been sneaking more and more new products in daily now.  We added some fabulous ScrapFx chipboard pieces yesterday and the brand new Ingvild Bolme Resins in tonight.  You never know what you’ll find in the store these days. 🙂

Coming up… More new products daily – I have so much here waiting to be added. Kits…. Sight change up but so much coming. Maiko Kosugi‘s BEAUTIFUL layout will be coming but might be about 2 weeks off – I miscalculated and don’t have the chippies needed on hand. They are in route. Same can be said for the amazingly talented Di Garling. Wait till you see her first kit for us! What else… lets see… actually coming a new kit from Olga Heldwein and Nadia Canizzo.  Thought Nadia was done? Well she might have missed things a bit. 🙂  Always happy to welcome her works! We’ll post them as soon as we can.

Thanks for stopping by!

Together is Wonderful by Gabrielle Pollacco Plus New Stamp Set

Together Is Wonderful (MMK121)

Gabrielle Pollacco brings us another one of her “masculine” type layouts (not that her romantic pic with hubby is anything masculine of course)…. Together is Wonderful is just so perfect for so many occasions with friends, family and loved ones. maybe we should call it a rustic layout since she did such a great job creating the look and feel of weathered rust. As always Gabi’s video tutorial (access available when you purchase the kit) demonstrates how easy it is to create a rusted look with a common household ingredient like cinnamon. Did I let the cat out of the bag on that one?

Nothing other STUNNING or BEAUTIFUL or any other similar adjective can be used when you look at Gabi’s work. Always flawless and inspiring.  The details she incorporates just pop!

We’ve had kits that may top the record charts for the use of flowers (Um, Stacey Young – :)) But this one is sure to set records with the amount of chipboard used in one kit.  And it’s all just so perfect!

Thank you Gabrielle!!!

As usual, I made up a bonus page to go with this layout using left overs and just a few extra pieces. I didn’t have and wasn’t able to find a similar resist type paper to compliment this one but I did find a “normal” piece of paper from Prima’s Timeless Memories collection that goes SO well (at least I think so). I love this collection for background appears as they are so versatile and go with so many other things. I am digressing… here is my bonus sample…

Now of course if you are like me, you might not have cinnamon in your house and might be too lazy to get some.  Well, I cheated a bit and combined a few other things… I used a Brown Wink of Stella Marker to get the shimmery type look which worked well and I could have left it alone there but then I reached in to the various paints and colored texture paints I have and never open and found another brown and verdigris type color to add a bit of.  Love the finish look even though I think I could have saved myself a bit of a hassle by just getting some cinnamon. It’s already on the shopping list of next time.

I do love it but in hindsight probably would have balanced it out a bit better by adding the large cog to the left side of page to offset the branch on top but neither here nor there.

OK – think I have said enough about this amazing kit. We have another exciting product to unveil… the WELL anticipated follow up to Gabi’s Texture Stamp.  This one, named, Gabi Crackle Textures Stamp (I can’t use punctuation in product titles or it bunks things up so hence the Gabi and not Gabi’s for the title)…

The 5 stamps are sure to go great on so many projects making this one a  must have! The set is 4″ x 6″ of clear polymer stamps. Made in the US.

International Customers…

Shipping of 1 stamp set is $8.88 (Canada – a bit less for you). Shipping of 2-5 stamp sets is usual $11.48.  If interested in the kit and stamp set, shipping will general be about $18.50.  You can email us for a price quote (please specify the items you wish to purchase and where you are located) or you can place order and click – “Bill me actual shipping”. Once we have your order filled, we will email you a Money Request form PayPal for the specified shipping (all shipments sent via US Postal Service).

We made this a bit easier for you when it comes to finding the various products Gabrielle has created for us:

Later this week…. A beautiful new kit from Maja Nowak along with lots of new products. LemonCraft is arriving this week – more House of Roses papers along with their new collection Heart Painted.

Thank you,
