AVA 5 Months!!!

I'm so excited, today I have a couple of layouts on the Prima blog using the GORGEOUS Royal Menagerie collection! I have two layouts, one of each of our precious Granddaughters!!! First is Ava, these pics were taken on her 5 month birthday! I love how the colors match perfectly with all the lucious goodies in this collection. Lots of flowers, leaves, stamps, chippies and more! The pretty pinks, yellow, lavendar, aqua and hints of green!

Here you can see how perfectly the colors in the embellishments match the colors in the cute pictures!

I added some small blooms, leaf stamp, punched leaves and alphablend letters on this tag. I also took one of the wooden elements and used the white pastel stick to give it a whitewashed look.

I love the lavendar blooms! I did some faux stitching and used a border punch too.

Here you can see a little better, I also distressed the edges slightly with the Ingvild Bolme distressing tool.

This was a lot of fun, so many fun elements in this collection. It's one of my favorite collections ever, maybe even all time favorite!!! Thanks so much for stopping by. Please visit the Prima blog to see what else the DT has created with this collection :)

Some Prima Projects!

Hello everyone, I know it's been almost a month since I posted here, but we've had a lot going on. I've been keeping up with Design Team commitments, but haven't had much time to blog!!! Things should be getting back to normal now and I should be back to posting regular!!!

I was lucky enough to be chosen as part of the new Prima Design Team and have had a couple of projects featured on the Prima blog already! I wanted to share them here too. Neither is a layout, which is very different for me! But both were lots of fun!!!

First is a chunky charm necklace that I made using some of the Memory Hardware pieces. It seems like the large multi-charm necklaces are very popular right now. I really like them, I've bought several and wear them a lot! When I saw the bottles and trinkets I thougth I would try to make one.

I chose my items and put them together with the Memory Hardware Villenueve Antique rings and chains. I used several items and also instead of connecting the chain in the back I chose to conect it in the front leaving two pieces of the chain hanging, adding a charm to the longest one. I took the little bottle and used the label that says "Lavende" and I took some tiny purple blooms and pushed them into the little vial. Really Easy and I liked the turn out!

Next is a set of tags that I made into refrigerator magnets! This is a family theme tag set that I did for our youngest son, his wife and their new baby!! It's a really easy and cute idea. I was a pretty simple and quick project and it was a lot of fun to do using all the little Julie Nutting stamps!!!
