Welcome Viktoriya!

Our newest Alchemist is the lovely Viktoriya!  We saw her work and just knew that she would be a perfect fit for Gauche Alchemy!


“I live in Kiev,Ukraine with my husband, two daughters and cat. I have many different hobbies in my life – cross stitching, toys, watercolor painting etc. Scrapbooking is my love at first sight and forever! I’ve also added mixed media to my point of view as well!  This a magic world of colors, paints and textures! Always amazing,always new and always creative! I think it is always a good idea!”

Look and see why we just *had* to add her to our team!



Open for Business!

Well, my dear friends, the day has finally arrived! For those of you have followed Gauche Alchemy over the years, you may recall that we once had a fantastic shop full of innovative, quirky mixed media kits as well as punchinella and other paper goodies. After our tiny vacation, we have now re-opened and are thrilled to share with you some new offerings!

Love collage or art journaling? How about our Color Block paper pack!


This pack includes 50 squares of handmade and specialty papers– flocked, gilded, wood grain, metallic, silk threaded! Punch them into shapes, add them to collage projects, or create unique cards. Each square is 3 to 5 inches.

My other favorite kit is our Wandering Soul Mixed Media mini book or handmade journal kit. It’s filled with an assortment of vintage as well as new supplies with a travel theme perfect for capturing your summer adventures! This kit includes a giant vintage atlas page, vintage embellishments, and a hardback vintage book cover complete with book plate.

Hellooooo Kiki!

Welcome back Kiki to the Gauche Alchemy team!


“I’m a mixed media artist, scrapbooker and art journalist who works full time out of my home. I’m married to a wonderful man who’s also my best friend, and we have one dog and two cats here in Ottawa, Ontario. I started my creative journey with digital scrapbooking in 2005. I followed my creative muse down a path to art journaling a little over 2 years ago. I absolutely love working in art journaling and scrapbooking. I have done some altered books, mini albums, and have dabbled with altered projects for my craft room. I’m a design team member for a local scrapbook store, and have designed for Scrapbooking From the Inside Out, Helmar, Creative Scrappers, The Rubber Cafe as a guest, and I was published in Art Journaling by Somerset Studios in the Winter 2013. I’m looking forward to stretching my creative muscle with the design team here at Gauche Alchemy.”

Kiki has a fun and eclectic style that we just love!  See fo’ yo’selves!




Hola Rebecca!

We are thrilled to welcome back Rebecca and her brilliant art journaling style!


“I have been making art since I was in junior high school, scrapbooking for over ten years and art journaling for about six years now. I am a bit of a craft-a-holic. I make everything from purses to journals to jewelry and altered art as well as anything in between! Art journaling is my love and passion and I hope to one day teach classes and share my love for it. Besides crafting I love to read, go shopping, spend time with family and spend time outdoors. I am married, have five dogs and am a preschool teacher full time.”

Check out Rebecca’s work and have a napkin ready because it’s totally drool-worthy.
