Prima Madeline Collection: Bella Donna layout

The entire Madeline collection from Prima is so beautiful, and I think the Bella Donna paper is one of my favorites. There are so many ways you can design with this piece. I cut out around the flowers and scrolls, and then mounted it on a sky blue piece of cardstock that I had glittered. I glued the photo on a 6x6 size of "Ste.Marie" paper and cut the letters out of "Spring Tide." The spring tide paper is so pretty, because musical notes are always a favorite, but Prima made this one in a beautiful aqua color. I embellished the papge with some Prima flowers and some extra flowers and a butterfly from Michael's.

Bo Bunny Gabrielle mini album

I love the colors in the BoBunny Gabrielle collection, the blues that turn into a rich teal and the soft pastel oranges that turn into a bright orange, they all combine so beautifully. I made this mini album as a design team project for my LSS "Memories Live On" in Cupertino, California. I didn't add any photos because I wanted people to envision their own photos inside and what they could add to personalize it for themselves.

Happy Mother's Day!

I love to garden, and I have an abundance of flowers blooming nearly year round here in sunny California. I love this Once Upon a Springtime collection from Graphic 45, so I thought it would be perfect to make a vase using these papers so I could really display my flowers in style. The vase can make anyone feel like a professional florist, beautifully showcasing any blooms or boquet you may have. I cut some of the fairies out of the paper, attached them to wooden stakes, and placed them throughout the boquet. I used it to decorate for an outdoor Mother's Day brunch, and it also was the perfect addition to our Easter celebration. I hope all of you hard working Mother's out there had a wonderful Mother's Day!!!

Prima Thank You card

I absolutely love the Prima Madeline collection. So many pinks and flowers (my favorites) and I really love the soft blues and greens, those would also work great with boy/masculine pages. I made this card for a friend and took the photo in my hydrangeas that are just starting to bloom. I love the Prima rose blossoms, it feels like I just plucked them out of my garden and am sending them to a friend.
