Time Together sig

Today, we have a very special featured artist, the lovely and talented Gabrielle Pollacco! She is an incredible designer, on many wonderful Design Teams, and has been so lovely to get to know. Her work is so beautiful as you will see below. You will love her shabby chic style and memorable projects. We are so excited to feature this wonderful artist on the blog today!


"Hi, my name is Gabrielle Pollacco.  I've been a scrapbooker for almost 10 years now and have enjoyed the journey every step of the way.  I would say my scrap style would be called vintage/shabby-chic.  I have a background in Commercial Arts that I find has played a roll in a lot of my creative designs.  I've had the privilege of being on a number of wonderful design teams over the years and have also been published in a number of magazines as well.  Lately I spend a lot of my time on sharing fun new projects and techniques on my blog and on my Youtube Channel.  You can find me at www.gabriellepollacco.blogspot.ca and https://www.youtube.com/user/GabriellePollacco

I'm honored to be a guest designer this month for Graphic 45, their papers and products are so beautiful and such a pleasure to work with."

This is a wonderful By the Sea canvas that Gabrielle created. You can see so many incredible techniques throughout - like the wonderful ways she used our stamps, fussy cut items, twine, pearls, and more. Wow, what a gorgeous canvas. Enjoy her video tutorial of this wonderful canvas.
