My friends joke that I can't leave anything alone. I have to alter everything that I get my hands on. This little picture frame was no exception in my "altered" hands. I grabbed this simple black from my the shelf in my art studio with the goal of quickly changing the picture. Well, over an hour or so later...I changed the frame, too. I am still head over heels for the papers and flowers from the Engraver & Zephyr collections from Prima. I picked these up from Your Memories Here and can't stop using them. I remember picking these out and my husband commenting on how great they would look together. Boy, was he right!!!
Good evening everyone! I am sorry for the tardiness of this post today... it was a busy day for me! We are working on getting the kids signed up for summer camp and somewhere along the line the copy of my little girl's birth certificate went missing...so I had to go and get another one. Since the office moved, I got a little mixed up, so it took longer than I had intended. But I am here now, with this clean and simple Kraft card that I made using a couple of products from the Your Memories Here store.
I created a little marbled banner out of some extra paper using some shimmery paint and more Vintage Photo Distress Stain. The smaller flag is a chipboard banner with some Distress Stain on the edges.
I still have some of the Prima Wood Icons left for other projects. For $6, you get a lot of the icons, plus an adorable wooden box that you can alter or use for storage! I plan on altering my little box. It will look really cute all painted and with some patterned paper covering it. If you haven't purchased yourself some of these, go to the store and get some before they are all gone!
Here are some other shots of my card...
I hope you enjoyed my simple little card! Have a great night!
I am still loving the Zephyr Collection from Prima that I picked up from Your Memories Here. I love the bright colors of this collection and the vintage feel. I thought it was perfect for a card for my wonderful mom. Let's just hope she received the card before she sees the blog post. Surprise?!
Happy Saturday everyone! I'm sharing with you today another creation using crafting products from Your Memories Here. This time, I chose to use a Ruby Violet cuff in hot pink/orange. I thought this would be so fun to wear to the Sweet Retreat. What's Sweet Retreat I hear you say?? Well!! It's going to be a terrific weekend of fun and creative genius! as we gather together with friends, laughter and doing our favorite all time hobbies. There are still spaces available if you would like to join us! You can find more information about it HERE. I can't WAIT!! Such beautiful Prima gorgeousness as usual!! :) Anyhoo, getting back to my project LOL, I used a flower from a Prima flower grab bag and a Prima Ivory Vermont leaf. In addition, I applied some Prima bling and a canvas key colored with Tim Holtz distress stain. I love how it turned out and it was so easy to make! Wouldn't these make cute Mother's Day corsages? or perhaps for a birthday princess? There's endless ideas and Your Memories Here has just what you need to put together something yourself! Make sure to stop by the store and take a peek. Thank you for joining me today and have yourself a great week!
Good morning friends! I hope you are all doing well today. All is going well in my world... we have been pretty busy this month, so I've not had as much time for crafting lately. I did find time to make this card last week to share with you today using some flowers from the Summer CHA 2012 Grab Bag from the Your Memories Here Store.
I love the shimmer of the marbled background. It's very pretty. After the background was adhered, I added the ribbon, flowers, sentiment and then the jewels.
Below are some close ups of the card....
This will definitely be a card I will send to our family in Ohio. Although emails and ecards are really popular these days, there is still nothing like sending a real home made card to those you care about. To me it will never grow old. So send a card out to someone once in a while. Make someone smile. :)
A few weeks ago Marty (my love) picked up this little letter H when we were out and about. He thought it would be fun for me to alter the H and he was right! I covered it with some text paper that I had from a little bag that someone gave to me. I ripped it up and adhered it with Matte Medium. I had so much fun adding Prima flowers and Trinkets that I picked up at the fabulous Your Memories Here Store.
Hi everybody! I hope your enjoying NSD or National Scrapbooking Day!! There are LOTS going on everywhere!! Prima has some exciting things to share with you today and this is a perfect opportunity to visit Your Memories Here to stock up on all your favorite Prima supplies to re-create some terrific projects!
This time around, I felt like pulling out some much-neglected rubber stamps from Prima's Ruby Violet line. I am using the cling mounted stamps here to create a baby card. I started with some Faber-Castell gelatos to create the background on some watercolor paper using baby wipes to blend. I added some interest to it by using a Copic multiliner to add dash lines. Then, I took some of the ruby violet stamps and created the monkey and whale images using some Prima chalk edgers. Furthermore, I created some smaller images from the same stamp line to create the button and sun images. I then applied some Prima washi tape to complete the card. The bkgds on the monkey and whale are further softened by using some additional Prima chalk edgers in pastel colors. Lastly, the Ruby Violet cling sentiment completes it. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a great time on this NSD!!!
Hi everyone! It's Nancy here today to share with you a project I made using some gorgeous Prima paper from the Annalee collection. With just one sheet of paper and my Cricut I was able to create this beautiful box for one of my daughter's friends birthday.
I began the embellishment with some custom dyed lace (dyed of course with my trusty mists). I then decorated the box with some beautiful flowers and leaves from the store
I LOVE corrugated cardboard and use it as often as I can in mixed media projects. I am so lucky to be involved in a birthday swap with some amazing artists from around the world. Instead of sending out a birthday card to the recipient, we create & mail a 4X4 piece of art. I loved receiving mine and immediately turned them into a banner that hangs in my art studio. For these little creations, I grabbed some fun goodies from my stash like that cute dog stamp, paints, trims, vintage sheet music, Prima Chalk Inks and Prima Flowers that I picked up from Your Memories Here.
Hey everyone. I hope you are all doing well.
I have been creating and having fun with my Prima Doll Stamps.
I wanted to create something that I could display in my craft room with the doll.
So, I made paper doll stands. They are too cute. I love them.
I hope you all like them. You have to get your hand's on these stamps.
They are selling out
within days everywhere.
