Christmas with Memory Hardware

I'm so ready for Christmas!  I've been having so much fun playing with my Prima products and getting ready!  I created this Prima Framed Christmas tree using lots of Memory Hardware pieces, plus so much more Prima!
I created the tree out of fabric, then went to town decorating it with my Prima stash!  I used Memory Hardware trims, sequins and pearls!  I also used Prima flowers, Snowflake paste, a stencil and even more!  This is a surprisingly easy project to create.   I've been so busy that I haven't had the time to create a video of how to do it, yet... BUT... I will have one up soon!

Don't forget the beautiful Prima Frames to add the finishing touch to all of your canvas projects!  I added some Rub N Buff to highlight the details of the frame for this project.

As always, I invite you to visit the Prima Blog to see what the rest of the design team has been up to!

Prima BAP November!

It's that time again!  Time for the Prima Challenges!  My favorite part of the challenges is that there is something for everyone. If you haven't played in a while, Prima has added a card challenge to the line up, too!

I did a sample for the BAP challenge.  The BAP is always such a great jumping off place for layouts.  I chose to pick up the diagonal idea, a few placements and let my style shine through.

I used lots of Prima's Sweet Peppermint Collection by Frank Garcia.  I love the cute look of this collection!  It's perfect for creating EVERYTHING!  It complimented these sweet photos perfectly!

Be sure to go by the Prima Blog to see the BAP Sketch, the CAT and the PPP!

Canvas Pumpkins for Prima

It's Fall!  I'm overflowing with Pumpkin Ideas!

These are super simple and are made from wide canvases.  I've done a Snap Guide for the directions on how to make them.  I will link it at the bottom of this post.

A little bit of Metallique Paint, 3D gloss gel, any stencil and micro beads are all it takes to customize your pumpkins to your style!

Finish them with a wooden stem, a couple of leaves and some twine, ribbon or both and you have a simple pumpkin to coordinate with any fall decor!

Prima Rub-on Adhesive and Foils (Written Directions)

The Prima Rub-on Adhesives and Foils make decorating Christmas ornaments so easy!!  They add a beautiful and elegant touch to any project.  I loved adding them to this simple paper mache ornament.  

Touches of the Prima Glass glitter accent the foil and Metallique Paints perfectly!

A bit of trim and a few Prima Trinkets... and don't forget those amazing Prima Flowers and you have an ornament that works great for yourself or even as a gift!  Not to mention, all the colors of foils, flowers, glitter, etc. make ornaments easy to customize to fit any look!

1.  Paint the ornament with Clear Gesso then with Metallique Paint.  Let Dry.
2.  Make a pattern with cardstock that matches the sides that you want to add foil to.  Cut out adhesive in the pattern before adhering.  Rub-on adhesive.  Apply foil. 
Tip:  Work one section at a time.  This will ensure that you don't damage the beautiful pattern of the adhesive.
3.  Apply a liberal, even coat of Gloss Gel.  While wet, cover with glass glitter.
4.  Attach trim to edges of ornament.  Add loop for hanging.
5.  Embellish

Prima BAP Challenge

It's time for Prima's October Challenges!  As always, there is a great Build a Page sketch and a beautiful Prima Product Picks combination!  If you haven't seen it yet, Prima has also added a Cards and Tags challenge, too!  So many fun ways to participate in Prima Challenges!!

There were a lot of thing to love about this month's BAP sketch.  I chose to use a few of the details of the sketch and then let my own style dictate where my layout ended up. 

I really loved the stripes and used embroidery floss as a nod to the stripes.  I also chose to stick with the basic placement, as well as, the 3 pictures.  Instead of using 3 separate poses, I chose a favorite, printed it in color, black and white and dialed down the saturation for the 3rd picture.  

Be sure to go to the Prima Blog to see all the challenges and beautiful design team inspiration samples!

Prima Scraplift Day

Today on the Prima Blog, we are having fun lifting one of our Design Teammates.  It can be fun to scraplift occasionally, especially when you have a beautiful project to let become your inspiration.  I loved that Robin used straws on her project that we lifted. I am forever buying them, but seldom using them, so that was my jumping off spot for my project.  I used the original colors and basic layout, but added pink and some of my own touches, too.  

You might notice the printed flowers that enhance the floral clusters.  I used Prima's new Watercolor Coloring Book along with the new Pastel Watercolor Confections to create it.  Simply, have fun coloring then cut out your favorite parts and use them again!  It's a 2 for one!
