Think Pink with Prima


"Breast Cancer. It's a horrible disease that affects so many around us: friends, moms, sisters, aunts, neighbors, co-workers. And, although the majority affected are women, this is a disease that also attacks men. Let's do what we can this month to bring awareness to the devastation breast cancer causes. Prevention is the key!"

I am from a family of breast cancer survivors and I designed this card to show my love and support for those who are enduring this struggle.

The beautiful color combination I selected from a color board makes this my favorite Prima project.  When I saw this color combination, I knew exactly which beautiful Prima embellishments and papers I would use to create my canvas.

Mon Amour Card

Less is truly more when creating this sweet card.  Layering just a few key pieces of chipboard along with a single ephemera card creates a beautiful effect.

World’s Fair is one fantastic collection.  The vibrant color palette served as my inspiration for this fun and carefree layout.  I used an elegant circle embellishment in the center of my page to mimic the shape of a Ferris wheel.

"You Are Loved" Graphic 45 Mon Amour Collection


This layout was created using the Mon Amour collection.  The thing I love most about this collection is its versatility.  I used a tag from the Large Tag Album to mat my photo.  I then framed my photo using red liquid pearls. I added embossed chipboard, twine and ribbon to give different textures to the page.

Mon Amour Altered Mixed Media Box

Hello everyone!

The Mon Amour collection is absolutely stunning!  I used the 5x5 Mixed Media Box from the Staples collection to create this beautiful set.  This allowed me to use various mediums for stenciled designs and collages.

Decorating Your Home with Prima

DIY home decor

I love using lanterns through-out my home.  Today I am sharing a lantern to be used indoors as an accent for my craft studio.  I started with a white lantern from my local art supply store.  I kept the design simple by adding just a few key pieces.  At the very top of the lantern, I applied black sand texture paste and allowed it to dry overnight.  Next, I added metal embellishments to each section of the top of the lantern.
