New Prima Rossibelle

There has to be a favorite for every release, right?  Nope!  :)  There are too many to choose from!  I love the new Rossibelle Collection from Prima!  This one is full of pink, black and white.  It has it all!  Lots of shabby chick, lots of fussy cutting opportunities, beautiful patterns and embellishments and don't forget the gorgeous flowers!!  I think everyone will love this!

You have to take note of the gorgeous trim with this one!!  I used it connected on my layout, but also couldn't resist cutting off a few pieces to scatter!  Such and fantastic trim!!

Plus, look at the centers of the flowers!!  They are also gorgeous!!  Every single thing is included that you could possibly need to make beautiful layouts!

Don't forget to go by the Prima Blog and to check out Prima on social media!!  I know that there are lots more beautiful samples and of course, other surprises!!

Prima's Sweet Peppermint Collection

This is a paper pieced Santa that I created using Prima's Sweet Peppermint collection.  It is such an adorable collection and I thought it would be perfect for a whimsical Santa.  I wanted to give it a bit of a homespun, quilted look, so I added some hand stitching.  

Be sure to take a look at the beautiful holly leaves and berries, too!  They are perfectly coordinated to go with the collection.  Of course, there are beautiful flowers, too!


His beard is a shaker box and it includes New Memory Hardware Fragments along with glass beads. 

 I love how perfect the Prima Rustic Frame is for him!  These frames are terrific!  

Thanks for dropping by and be sure to check out the Prima Blog for all the gorgeous examples from the team!

Prima Summer Release Foils!

The Prima Foils and Adhesive Rub-ons by Christine Adolph are some of my favorite things from Prima!  I can't get enough of them and love how they add shine to everything!  So, you can imagine how excited I was to see some new ones in the summer release!

I love chargers to set around for special events so I made this one for fall.  It will look great mixed in with my other Fall or Thanksgiving pieces.

I used the new Foildelic along with some of the new Adhesive Rub-on Leaves applied to transparency to tuck into the floral clusters on my charger.  I love that there are so many colors in these foils which allowed me to choose my favorites to add to the flowers.

The flowers are the Prima Boxed Flowers Gold Kiss.  I used the new Color Bloom 2 sprays to add color to the flowers to make them match perfectly with my foil leaves.  

Of course, there are more examples on the Prima Blog!  I even have another project there that will be coming soon on my blog.  :)  You don't want to miss a thing with all the full reveals and there are lots of give aways during the full releases, so hurry over there!!

Live With Prima Kits

Have you seen the new Live with Prima Kits?  They are TERRIFIC and there are so many to choose from, but you better get them quickly before they are gone!  

You can find them on Live with Prima and also on Amazon!

I had a chance to create with the Julie Nutting Kit and I LOVED it!  I created this mini brag book that would be fun to gift to a new mom, grandmother, or anyone who has photos that they would like to share.  I made this small so it could fit into a purse to carry along to make bragging easy where ever you are!  :)

I've also put together some quick instructions to help if you would like to re-create it. 

The finished dimensions of each page are 2.75x3.75".  There are 7 pages with fronts and backs to each page.   This includes the cover and the back.

Step 1:  Use 6x6 Pad to cut 2.75x3.75" pieces for each page, as shown.  Use white embossed cardstock for pages, as shown. 

Tip:  You can either get embossed cardstock or use embossing folders to make your own.

Step 2:  Make random slanted cuts, as shown, and layer pieces for each page.

Tip:  Stitch all individual pages before gluing them together to form your album.

Step 3:  Stamp and emboss using Julie Nutting border stamps.  Fussy cut.  Tuck pieces of the borders into the layers, as shown.  Add stitching using copper or brown embroidery floss.  For the photo pages, cut embossed cardstock  2.25x3.25".

Tip:  I used watermark ink with copper colored embossing powder.  It matched beautifully with the Prima Washi Stickers that are included in the kit.  It also will prevent smearing if you choose to color your stamped pieces.

Step 4: Build 3 little paper doll dresses for your album.  

For each dress, stamp and emboss once on white cardstock.  Fussy cut the entire image.  This is your bottom layer.

Stamp and emboss twice on patterned cardstock from the Julie Nutting 6x6 pad.  Fussy Cut the dress only with one image.  Fussy Cut the skirt only with the second image then cut the pieces apart along the stamped lines. 

Ink all edges.

Layer with the white layer on the bottom, the dress imagine on top of that, and finally, add the cut apart skirt image on the very top to add more dimension.

Step 5:  Color 3 Wooden Julie Nutting Dolls.  I used Prima Chalk ink to paint them. 

Tip:  Do not add water to the ink.  For images this small, the ink alone works perfectly without bleeding.

Step 6:  Embellish each page, as shown.

Tip:  The Prima Washi Sticker Banner pieces were  taped to transparency to make the tabs for the album.

Tip:  I used the Prima Washi Sticker Words layered on white cardstock.  This allowed for using foam to add height.

Step 7:  Don't forget the little details!  Use a pretty ribbon to add to the ring that holds your album together.   Use Prima Wax Cord to tie little bows to the tops of your Julie Nutting wood dolls.
