A New Challenge Blog...

I am quite honored to be up on Evolution-Scrap's challenge blog. I am happy to inspire with my layout in their very first challenge. Please take a moment to check it out and play along.

I created this page using Prima's Cigar Box Secrets Collection. I a in love with the bold colors in this collection. Check out the stenciled background using Prima's brand new Modeling paste... the translucent color makes a perfect subtle image to add layers of paper, flowers, fibers and embellishments.

Strips of paper curled and twisted...

Glorious Prima flowers...

More layers... never too many layers...

Head on over to Evolution-Scrap for all the details to play along. Go here...

Brand New Prima Resin from Ingvild Bolme...

Sharon said it best over on Prima's blog..."Nobody does shabby chic resins like Ingvild! Her eye for design and detail on each piece is simply exquisite! From gorgeous birds to cascading swirls, each NEW resin is sure to add delightful, shabby chic touches to all of your craft projects."

I had the pleasure of playing with this wonderful resin fountain. The details are extraordinary and it's just a completely beautiful piece.

 see the detail... just fabulous!

A New Julie Nutting Doll and a Step by Step to Share...

Meet Kiera! She's a beautiful new Julie Nutting stamp from Prima. I had a wonderful time mixing up the Julie Nutting Stamp with some of Prima's hot off the press Mixed Media products. 

 1. Spray Tea Stain Color Bloom spray on a Julie Nutting watercolor paper tag. Dry.

2. Pounce touches of Soft Matte Gel on the tag. Sprinkle Glass Glitter on top. The gel will adhere the glitter permanently.

 3. Add Cigar Box Secrets paper and a doily (cut from our new dies). Edge everything with a metallic chalk edger!

 4. Create your doll using our new Keira doll stamp. Edge all paper edges to give definition to the layers.

 5. Add Kiera to the tag and finish with flowers, Jute Trim, and more touches of gel and glass glitter for a sweet tag filled with magical sparkles

A little Close Look...

**Be sure and stagger your ribbon on your pages when you adhere them so that each ribbon is in clear view.

The Video.... Hope you enjoy!

Below a photo of the spine of the album... I added a pieces of canvas to cover the extra holes I made in the end by mistake during the Live Broadcast... See, I fixed it! lol! Sorry for the little mishap. Proves anything is possible when it's Live.

Below is a photo of both the albums that I created so you can see that each has wonderful color contrast although they are a bit different. Just have fun and create what you love!

Cut Pages-

Pg 2. 4 1/2
Pg 3. 5"
Pg 4. 5 1/2"

**Eyeball your cover the fit around your album as seen in the Video. Mark you holes for punching by lining an album page up about 1/8"away from the creased fold. (see video)
**Punch Holes for rings in Pages first (about 3/4" from folded edge) and about 2" apart.

Summer CHA PaperArts Memories... with Prima

Summer CHA just happen to be in my backyard... well sort of.  Atlanta is only about 80 miles away so managed to drive back and forth most days.

This traffic reminds me why we made the decision to move to small town Alabama 21 years ago...

Adam, Ania, Sharon, and Me

Some of my handy work... not exactly mine, but I did velcro all of it to that wall for display...

We all stayed pretty busy...

 Ania is the demonstration queen...

Awwww.... Sharon!

and Ania!

I am pretending to assist Ania... Ha!

Mischief!!!  I left my camera!

 My fave from the show... Ania's John Travolta moves... lol! 
Love Her!!!

It was sad saying farewell to these wonderful people!
