Eyes of Wonder with Pima

I am back again with another Prima layout, using the Swirlydoo's January kit. I am totally in love with Prima lately. After this layout I am left with scraps, so now I need to go out of my comfort zone and create something with just scraps. But that's another pos,t and I should talk about this layout. So, I used the Prima Firefly collection papers again. There is one paper that was from Fab Scraps, but you barely see it. I used a lot of Prima resins. I also used Prima Resist Canvas for the first time. Not sure how I feel about it yet. Well, maybe I do, since I feel the design should come through more. I wanted to put pearls or something on the leaves, but decided to leave them alone. All the flowers are Prima, and all the punching was done with Martha Stewart punches.  The picture is an older one of my granddaughter. I can hardly believe it's her. They change so fast! Well here's my layout:

I hope you found inspiration!

Cute With Prima

Hello, I am back with another layout. This time I am using the Swirlydoo's January kit, and with it came some beautiful Prima papers.It is the Firefly collection. I totally went out of my comfort zone creating this layout. I used a mask and went all around the paper in various spots adding paint. That is so not me, but I think in time and lots of practice I could get used to doing this. I had fun! Now I used tons of Prima on this layout. All the paper are Prima, most of the flowers are Prima, except the blue ones which are Kaisercraft. The resins are definitely Prima. I did add some punched borders here and there. I do love my punches. I was trying to find a way to add some liquid pearls, which is so me, but I didn't feel this layout needed them. Anyway, I hope you enjoy it and get some ideas.

Thanks for stopping by!

Scraproom Organization

I finally have half a room I can be proud to scrap in. Well, actually I like the whole room, but my desk, walls, and some shelving still need to be painted white this spring. What I did do was to purchase some of that cheap white shelving and lots and lots of containers. I tried to get a variety so it wouldn't be too boring. I think I spent as much on some of the containers as I did the shelving. Now I know particle wood isn't the greatest, but I did try to put most of the heavier items at the bottom to prevent warping of the shelves. At least now my husband knows what I want him to build in the future. I love it and I hope it gives you some organizational ideas!

Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great day!!
