Prima Bird House

Hi everyone! Welcome back to the blog. I have a project today that incorporates a lot of Prima products. I fell in L.O.V.E . with this little Prima Birdhouse!! Oh my word!

Once I got started, I realized how well everything fit together! So, here’s my paper crafting project for you today.

Prima Birdhouse

I had picked up an old photo of a child at an antique store awhile back and have been wanting to use it. I fit perfect (after a little scoring and folding) into the birdhouse. The little girl looks like she’s delighted to have the Dina Wakley Scribbly Bird with her!

I was able to alter the color of my flowers to just the right color with a few Dylusions spray colors. Viola!

I have shot a video of the process, hope you find it inspiring!

Flight: Art Journal Page

Hi everyone! Happy Saturday!!!

I’ve got an art journal page for you. I had a happy accident on this one (my tape stuck to my Eiffel Tower) and  tried out a couple new techniques. I went with a little more Shabby Chic style with this which is one of my favorite looks.

I started out using Dina Wakley Turquoise paint… and then the layering began!

I added Texture paste and layered more paints on top till I had the look I wanted.

I cut out the Leaf Cluster Die from Sticky Back Canvas, then colored with Distress Paints. The texture on this page makes me happy!

I’ve shot a full process video, and had to speed it up quite a bit to fit in the time allowed. I have all the supplies listed below if you have any questions.

Color Coordinates Inspiration!

Hello everyone! It’s Shari here with a new series. You asked for it, and I aim to deliver! I will be giving you Color Coordinates Inspiration samples that you can try.

CCI-8.15.14

Todays colors are nautical in a way but young masculine in another. Honestly, I haven’t tried them all together before. It was fun as a personal challenge.

I created a birthday card by using the Hourglass stamps and coordinating dies along with the inspiration inks.

I die cut the Happy Birthday greeting and reassembled it to reform the sentiment. I used a bit of foam tape to lift up the white panel for added dimension.

I’ve also shot a video of how my card came together.

Summer School with Shari Carroll

SSS_summerschool_blog_header_2014

Hello and welcome to day 2 of Summer School!

Today’s teacher is none other than Mrs. Shari Carroll! Shari has an amazing, masculine card to share. She shows how easy it is to use the new Teacher’s Pet supplies to create cards for the manly teachers out there!

Shari Carroll Teacher's Pet

We love how Shari used just a part of the Scrambled Letters stencil to create her embossing paste background. The colors are perfect for a masculine card and that pop of orange makes the mini chalkboard she created stand right out! How fun is her chalk sentiment?!

To see how Shari created her card, you can watch the video below:
