Prima Make N Takes

If you know me as a scrapbooker, you know that Prima Marketing is my favorite company in this industry. I just love creating pretty layouts & projects! Even though they are known for their handmade beautiful flowers, they have an array of masculine & vintage collections as well. They have also decided to sell some mixed media products more recently.

The time has come for my 1st Prima demo/make n take as a Prima Ambassador. I will be making Purse Fobs at the Onalaska, WI Hobby Lobby on Saturday, October 25th from 11am-2pm. Here is a sample that I made of the Purse Fob.

The Purse Fob is made from their line of Mechanicals by Finnabair. There are 4 different sizes & you get 2 of each size in a package. I cut out the circles from their Stationer's Desk 6x6 paper pad on my cricut to fit inside the mechanicals. The sizes I used were 1 and 2 inches. I then cut apart some Say It In Pearls to embellish the background and to add a little bling to the smaller piece and flower. The tiny flower came from Prima's Wild Flower Pillar Pack. The Pillar Pack has many different shapes, sizes and colors. Even some occasional leaves and butterflies. Each pack is different. I used my own ribbon that I had in my stash to tie to the jump rings so you can hang it on your purse or backpack. I think this project is very versatile though. Some people glue a pin on the back so they can wear it or you can hang it with some sturdy string & put it on your Christmas tree for an ornament.

I also made a card that I can switch to in case I run out of Mechanicals. I just cut 8.5 x 11 sheet of cardstock in half and it makes 2 cards.

I used a stencil and Old Rose chalk edgers for the background of the card and then stamped the edges with Black Coal . The image in the middle is a journaling notecard but I cut the top and side with some decorative scissors and inked the edges with Rusty Bucket. I also inked the edges of the wood button and the very bottom flower. I used foam dots behind the notecard and the wood button to give some dimension to the card. I once again cut apart some Say It In Pearls and picked out some flowers from the Pillar Pack.

Although some Hobby Lobby stores carry different products, most of these should be found there. My Hobby Lobby stores that I am doing make n takes at dont carry the journaling notecards but have every thing else that I have listed.

Alice In Wonderland

It is that time of the month for a great challenge from Child's Play Challenges. Alice in Wonderland is one of my all time favorites.

I tend to use  photos that go with the challenge most of the time but also use colors in the photos too. I need to try to get my cousins wedding album done soon so I looked through the wedding photos & found these of the wedding party after the wedding. Everyone is sitting around a table drinking just like the photo of Alice in Wonderland.

Jack in the Box

Here we are again at the beginning of another month but now it is officially Fall. It is chilly here this week, only in the 40s this morning.

Childs Play Challenges will now be posting their challenges on the 1st & 15th of the month. So for the 1st challenge of October is inspired by the toy Jack in the Box. I was inspired by the colors of the Jack in the Box & my photos, which you can see the picture at Child's Play Challenges.

I cut out the number 3 from the We R Memory Keepers paper & inked the edges. I sanded the stars on the photo mat paper so they stand out better. I then added the photos & stickers.
