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!
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
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.
