Prima Inspired Work

HELLO to all you out there in Blog world. This week I have been so busy with life and it has taken me a long time to get this done, but here's my work and I hope you like them.

Lately, I have been in a Prima kind of mode. I love anything that has to do with Prima. It started when I saw a You Tube Video of two lovely ladies making canvas scrapbooking. I fell in love with that method.

First, is a layout of me and the many sides of me.
I call it

" ME "

"Find yourself and be happy with you. "

Using some Prima Bling and lace that I found at My Best Friends Place ( Hobby Lobby) LOL.
Also using die-cut flowers with artificial flowers that I got from the Dollar stores.

The way I got the paper to roll is so easy. Just tear the paper and roll down the sides and hold it down with a glue dot. Then ink all the edges of the paper. I also roughed the edges with a distresser. I love how the edges came out using the distressers.

These are three of my favorite pictures of me. I have been wanting to do something with this pictures for awhile.

This lovely rose is one that I did find at a dollar store and that is was so lovely that I had to buy it. I didn't know what to use it for, but I think that it looks good right next to me. What do you think?

Here is the whole layout. Oh, how I love the way it came out. The flowers and the bling look so pretty. What about those pictures. The butterfly on the flower is gorgeous. I found the butterfly at Micheal's in the Spring section.

This is my second layout.
I Call it.......


Love doesn't make the world go round

Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

"If You Love Something Let It Go
If It Comes Back To You IT'S Yours
If It Doesn't, IT Never Was

I truly love this layout and how it came out. This is a layout of my husband and I. The flower on the top is one I found at a garage sale. The paper and Bling is from Prima.

I got these cute feathers and I didn't know what to do with them at first, until I saw this paper. And YES, I got them at my best friends place (Hobby Lobby) LOL The Prima paper I bought at a great store in Magnolia called All About Crafts
6911 Farm-To-Market 1488 Magnolia, TX 77354

Here is more bling from Prima. Cute bows that was added and also some die-cut flowers.

The lace and trim turned out really pretty. I used three strips of colored cardstock paper. The colors are black, olive green, and tan. I also used a Martha Stewart punch. I love these punches and I've learned about each punch from Karrie from Scrapp'n Savvy.
I love Karrie's layouts and her Mother
Millie is so good. Check them out.

The trim with the tassels came from Hobby Lobby too. I found it on sale and I didn't know how I wanted to use it, but I knew I would find something to do with it.

Here is the whole layout. I also added some keys at the bottom of the page. All in all it looks good.

Layout number 3
I Call it
"Family Tree"
I don't care how poor a man is;
if he has family, he's rich.
You don't choose your family.
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.

I love the tree on this paper. I added some cute bling that I found at Archiver's

I used Prima Bling and I also used a cute flower die-cut and added it to the artificial flowers.

My family always take pictures in February of every year. I always have so many of the wallet size left and don't know what to do with them. When I saw this paper I knew exactly what to do with them.

I ended up cutting the white flowers in half and then adding them to the die cut flowers on top and it came out cute.

Here, I added a small bow that I made with three different color ribbons and added a small flower in the middle.

I did the same thing to these flowers as the top flowers on the above picture. I also added a small bling in center of the pink flower.

Here is the whole layout. I like how the pic came out on the lay out and you can see how my cute son has grown through out the years.

Here is a cute mini album
I Call it

"True love is like ghosts which
every body talks about and few have seen."

True love doesn't have a happy ending
True love never ends."

For this album I used the Once Upon a Time paper from DCWV.
I love this paper.

Here is a cute little box I saw one of the Prima ladies make on Ustream Live.

This box is so easy to make. The flower I found at a garage sale and loved it when I saw it.

The lace is so cute and found it at yes, Hobby Lobby.

This card I made to go with the next layout.

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Phillipians 4:6

Using some Prima Bling and solid color paper I made this card. I love the way this card came out. I also use flower wire and I made the vines to put the flowers on.

I added some small bows behind the flowers. Some lace was added to the back of the paper and curled it up to be able to see the lace.

I asked for Strength...
And God gave me Difficulties to make me strong.
I asked for Wisdom...
And God gave me Problems to solve.
I asked for Prosperity...
And God gave me Brain and Brawn to work.
I asked for Courage...
And God gave me Danger to overcome.
I asked for Love...And God gave me troubled people to help.
I asked for Favors...and God gave me Opportunities.
I got nothing I wanted...
But I received everything I needed.

I love the colors that I used for this layout.
All of the Prima Layouts that I make.
I do not put them in an album.
I put them in a 12x12 picture frame
and just take the glass out

This layout is a 8x11. I used the Cricut Expression to cut out the butterflys and the big scallops. I also used Prima Bling to give it that extra touch.

The paper is from My Minds Eye
29th. Market Street Collection

Here is an another 8x11 layout.

I love how these flowers and the flossing came out.
The red and white canvas/picture frame is my son and niece that was in a Sweet 15 in Mexico. I've had these pictures for three years now. I didn't know what to do with the pictures until I met Prima.

The flowers were embossed twice to give it that glass look.

I used DCWV Paper, Prima Bling, and flower punches.

I love how it came out. This is my first time to work with canvas. I first saw it from APieceofCraftdotcom on you -tube and fell in love with the way it looked. So needless to say I love PRIMA!!!!!!!!!!!
They have so much cute stuff.

I really like how the whole layout came out in black and white. The Prima Bling is so lovely and I just love it . I used Cricut Cartridge Paper Doll Dress up, Prima Bling, DCWV Paper, and flower punches.

Thank you for stoping by.
