Love- Prima's Stationary Desk

Hi Everyone,
Here is another project that I made for Prima Winter CHA using the Stationary Desk Collection.

It might seem as if its a 12x12 layout but its actually a 6x6 layout and the photo is tiny.

 I used a mini photo of my husband and I taken at a photo booth and framed it in a mini resin frame.  I fussy cut images from the Stationary desk collection and added them as layers on the layout.
I used one of the new wooden ATC's and sprayed to match the papers.

Fun and Shimmerly Frugal- with Shimmerz

Hello Shimmerz's Fans
Today I have another fun and bright layout on the Shimmerz's blog using lots of yummy Shimmerz products.

Here are the Shimmerz products I used for this layout:

Hottie Pink

YES!! you are seeing this right, I only used two Shimmerly colors for this layout!!

 I really wanted to show you that you can create a wonderful and colorful layout using only two Shimmerz paints. The reason I share this secret with you is because I know some of you cannot afford to buy every amazing Shimmerz product out there. However, I believe its better to have a few favourite colors you like than none at all. Then, even if you have two colors you can create a bright and colorful layout just like this one.

So I encourage you to go to our Shimmerz store and get yourself at least a couple of colors. Get yourself your favourites. And remember that if you mention my name during Checkout, you will receive a free sample product.

The chipboard circles were primed with gesso before painted with Lilac Shimmerz paint. Once dry, I stamped on them in a random pattern. The wooden ATC was painted with both Lilac and Hottie Pink

I used both the Lilac and Hottie pink to create drips and sprinkles in the background.

Hope you enjoyed this fun layout.
Come check us out on our Facebook Page

Have a wonderful day

Doll House Mini Album- Prima's Julie Nutting collection

I designed this adorable Doll House mini album for my daughter 
It was created using the new Julie Nutting Collection from the Winter CHA 2014 Prima collection.

Here are some close-ups:

I used the new Prima wire to write the word HOME.

These cute chipboard windows come along as part of the album.

I also created three little paper dolls so my daughter could play with them.

I used the Free Spirit collection to cover the pages and used the chipboard furniture that comes with the collection.

All the furniture was painted in a retro style and added in different pages of the album to represent different rooms in the house.

Soar- 7 Dots Studio Challenge

Its time for this month's 7 Dots March Challenge and the theme this month is:

"Fly Away"

You can interpret this theme in any way. Birds, Butterflies, Hot air balloons, airplanes, etc are perfect examples that fit this theme. You can be creative and original, its your choice how you interpret the topic.

I thought this picture of my kids flying a kite up high in the air was the perfect picture for this month's challenge. 

I used the new Illumination collection to create this layout. I stamped the checkered pattern from the collection's clear stamp set. I also masked the background with the Illumination stencil. I used the Patina Texturez from Shimmerz for the masking because it fit the colours perfectly and it also created texture.

Illumination- Diversity
Illumination- Chipboard
Illumination- 6x6 paper pad
Illumination- Clear Stamps set 1
