A NEW Kit Page & 4 NEW Stamps Sets Designed by Me!! {The Scrapbook Diaries}


I'm super excited to share this post today, not only do I have another Page Kit to share with you all today but I've been busy creating more stamp designs! .....So my last kit page for The Scrapbook Diaries sold out super fast so I immediately started work on the next one!  I thought I would again choose colors from purple/green color palettes, but this time with a hint of teal.


As always there is lots of cool products in the kit, including some intricately cut wood embellishments from Wycinanka (unique pieces from an international manufacturer), Spritz from Shimmerz, Crafters Workshop Stencil and of course premium patterned papers (these papers have a nice thick almost watercolor-like weight).


Butterflies are always a favorite embellishment for me and there are lots of them in this page kit, enough for this design and then some (see the beautiful bonus page Janene created to go with this kit!).


Lots of pretty frame accents, blooms, vintage style lace, chipboard, inks and more!  


And of course you will get a link to a private Video Tutorial made just for this page that will give you  unlimited access in order to recreate this page for yourself.  If you want to jump on this Page Kit you can find it here at The Scrapbook Diaries! As always, Janene offers this kit as a Basic Kit or Complete Kit....she likes to help you save if you already have some of the items in your stash like the spritz or stencil. Grab one while they are still available, they do go fast! :)

Now as promised I have some exciting news to share with you all today.  I've been busy at the drawing board this past month and have created 4 new stamp sets!  When I start to work I ask myself what I would like to have in a stamp set, and then I start designing.....


This first set I created a diamond/daisy background stamp.  This is a designed I used to draw out by hand on some of my layouts a few years ago and I thought I would draw it out for a stamp to be used as a background design.  This one will be fun for mixed media style pages where you want to create your own background design.  I also sketched out some Daisy designs (separating the stems so that the blooms can be used in whatever design best fits your project).  You can find this stamp HERE.


I've gotten quite a few emails over the year asking where people can get my word stamps that I used on my pages.  LOL....I didn't have a word stamp, that was just my handwriting.  So it was suggested that I make up some word stamps in my own handwriting. Here I've used words that I often use on my scrap pages and projects....even though it's my own handwriting, this one will come in handy for me as well, as I won't have to worry that and the end of creating my page, that I might mess things up by slipping up while writing my word :)  ...You can find this stamp HERE.


When I dress up my shabby-chic Chipboard pieces, one of my favorite things to do is use a nice scripty word stamp to randomly stamp onto my white painted chipboard, and then use crackle paint on the piece.  It gives a really cool shabby look, so I made the 'Beauty' and 'Paris' word stamps for this purpose.  Another thing I find I love to use a lot is script quote stamps for creating my own background designs, so I used one of my favorite quotes "And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet, and the winds long to play with your hair".  And of course label stamps are always fun for creating interesting and pretty backgrounds, and are also a great option for cardmakers. You can find this stamp HERE.


Another design that I've hand drawn on some of my layouts in the past is this Dandelion design (this one would be really cool used with embossing powder!).  I also thought this one would be a fun one for card makers, so I created a word flourish as well for this stamp (again hand drawn and in my own handwriting).  I had a little more room on this stamp so I asked myself what design I would like to have handy for corner designs.....I realized I have never seen a fishnet design stamp.  I did a search looking for one and could not find one....so here is what I came up with, I wanted the design to have a sort of organic, distress look.  You can find this stamp HERE.

NOTE: Janene decided to release this stamp with the release of the latest Kit Page I made for The Scrapbook Diaries so that those of you who are interested in both the Kit and the stamps can save on shipping in one order.  International buyers, be sure to click on 'Bill me actual shipping fees" especially if you are buying the stamps on their own, ....there was some issues that arose with the last sets when international buyers, as a very large shipping price would automatically be added to the stamps (this was a standard/flat rate for international buyers but meant for large packages) Janene can ship the stamps on their own for a much more reasonable rate in small packages.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, I always appreciate your kind words and feedback on my work, you all make my day! xo xo

What a beautiful layout did you make, love the colours and the random stitching Gabrielle. Thanks for the tip about the shipping when ordering your stamps. I'm in love with your waterdrops and didn't know what the line ment (bill me actual shipping fees) so I stopped at the end because I couldn't find what I should have to pay. Maybe I will try again they are so great looking..;p
Greetings Miranda

Firstly, this layout is so pretty, absolutely beautiful and girly. Love the chipboard pieces you have used and love the colors too. And the stamps are really lovely, I wonderful if someone in Australia will stock them? They will sell like hot cakes I reckon! Beautiful designs and love the words as I don't like my handwriting!!

Impressive page, this is really beautiful! Love the details, especially the lightly colored stems and leaves on the round frame, just blends in so well!
That fishnet stamp is such a good idea!

Gwyneth Roper said...

Love your work as usual. Thanks for the word stamps.I was one of the people enquiring a while back, good to see them on the site. Thank you Ordered and hopefully winging their way over the pond to the UK

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Hi Lizzy, thanks for your kind words! Yes, as a matter of fact there is someone that will be carrying the stamps down there, do you know Joanne Flannery? She has a scrapbook store in New Zealand. Here is her link on FB if you want to contact her for them ;)https://m.facebook.com/?_rdr
..hope this link works, let me know if you have a problem finding her. xo

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Ah! Happy to see that you saw this post Gwyneth! Great suggestion hon! Hope you like them. xo

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Thanks hon! Yes, I'm excited about the fishnet, I think it will be a fun one for beach/water layouts. I looked to see if there was anything like that out there and didn't see what I had in mind, so I made up the design I was looking for ;)

Gabrielle Pollacco said...

Thanks so much hon! I'd love to see what you create with them!! xo xo
