Be Yourself Mixed Media Frame
(Prima April PPP & lots more)

So you have all heard about it?!
Prima Marketing Inc looking for some new designers
 (learn about their annual DT call right HERE
and everyone is talking about it... wishing, hoping, dreaming that they make the cut 
as designing for such a company as Prima would be any serious scrapper's dream come true!

Well, I'm no exception!

So today, I'll be sharing with you some Prima-based projects,
in hope that you and the good Prima folks like what you see!

Let's start with a brand new project, never before seen...

If you're familiar with the Prima monthly challenges, you will recognize 
the beautiful Spring colours of the April PPP inspiration board.

Inspired by these gorgeous colors and all the shabby chic feel of the images,
I decided to alter a 12" x 6" frame, to turn it into a lovely display of the style of scrapbooking
that I love the most and that best fits my style.

I started by fussy cutting this lovely fairy from the "Summer Dream" patterned paper
from the Fairy Belle collection by Jodie Lee.

I created a very colorful and textured background using a Prima stencil, molding paste 
and lots of mists.  I unfortunately do not own any of the Prima Color Bloom sprays yet, 
but I still wanted to show my mixed media skills.  I am looking forward to 
purchasing them soon as I know that they will be top quality!

I added a whole bouquet of Prima flowers (Bistro - De Soie, Jenuine - Pastel, Flower Market - North Country, Fairy - Sugar Blooms, Cottage Blossoms - Canary, just to name a few!) as well as flowers from Finnabair's Vintage Trinkets line, Wood Icons butterflies, Say It In Crystals Iridiscent Circles, resin Chandelier, a Fairy Belle trinket and lots of Say It In Crystals Gemstones Stickers.

And, before we get on to my other Prima shares, here's one last close-up image of my frame.

Now, in no particular order, let's take a look at some of my favorite Prima-based projects.

When I started scrapbooking a bit over 10 years ago, all I did were double-page layouts,
and I do still enjoy them.  In fact, the one below was just recently published in the Spring issue of Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  If I were to design for Prima, I think I could adhere to those scrapbookers who love double-pages and who may be wishing for more double-page inspiration.

Hopefully, I have inspired you to take out your Prima stash and start creating!

Before I go, I want to wish each of my scrappy friends
whose dream it is also to design for Prima all the luck in the world,
and I hohpe that you will do the same for me! :)


  1. Just wow, wow and wow! All are stunning and so creative creations, hard to pick for favorite one! You inspired me to make one like this, if you don't mind:)

  2. Oh wow, all these projects are stunning!!! Good luck with the DT call! xx
