Love Always- Shimmerz Feature

Its my turn again this month on the Shimmerz blog and I have a pastel coloured layout for you today which is very different than the vintage coloured mixed media canvases I created for my first reveal.

This sweet little baby all wrapped up in a blanket brings me so much joy and I just thought she needed a bright layout for the occasion.

These are the Shimmerz products I used for this layout:
Spritz- Chickadee
Blingz- Hottie Pink, Under the sea
Texturez: Patina
Shimmerz Bubblegum pink

I used some leftover papers I had from Heidi Swapp and combined them with Prima's Instascrap frames and cards to create layers under the photo.

I used the Blue Fern Studios Ruth's doily behind the photo. I primed it with gesso and then painted it in Hottie Pink Shimmerz paint.

The BFS title "Love Always" was covered in Patina Texturez.

Papers: Coordination cardstock, Heidi Swapp, 
Prima's Instascrap frames and ATC cards
Shimmerz Products
Blue Fern Studio Chipboard
Stencil: Prima
Golden Light Molding paste
Flowers: Prima
dots: MME

and here is a reminder of the FB Challenge this month:

Prima Based Class at Pointers Scrapbooking

A few days ago I taught a Prima based class at my local store Pointers Scrapbooking.

It was a mixed media class with lots of  textural techniques.

Here are some photos from the class.

They all worked really hard and the table was of course was full of scrapbooking products!!

These lovely ladies created a beautiful layout and I was so proud of them.

Some opted to finish their layout at home and are only showing their textured background.

I will be teaching another class in the summer.
It will be a fun summer beach themed layout.

Hope you can make it!!
More details to come soon!!

Have a wonderful day!!

The Book of Gratitude and Thanks- Prima

So I know I've making a lot of these gratitude journals lately but every time I give one to someone, another person asks me to make them one and I love making them.
It truly makes me feel so happy that I can create these journals for people as they will be writing their gratitude thoughts and feelings in them. This in turn brings positive loving energy to the universe and our world is definitely always in need of loving energy.

The first journal I created was for myself. It was over a year ago and I got the idea to write all the things I'm thankful and grateful for in my life. So I combined this idea with scrapbooking and a beautiful, meaningful book was born.

Since then, I've made quite a few journals for people as gifts and for those who asked me. This journal was made for my sister who's just been here for a visit. She lives abroad and when she saw the journals I had made for my other sister and mom, she wanted one too. And of course, I was happy to create another one for her

I used a hardcover notebook I bought from the dollar store and covered it in Prima's Hello Pastel papers from the collection pad. 
I used one of the Prima masks to create flourished textures on the paper and then coloured them in matching Shimmerz paints.

Then I used some of the Hello Pastel chipboard pieces and some beautiful Prima flowers and embellishments to match to the papers.

Most of these products can be found at selected Joann's Stores both in Store and online. 

Papers: Prima Hello Pastel
chipboard: Prima Hello Pastel
Stencil: Prima
Shimmerz: pink, lilac
Prima: Metal frame 
Flowers: Prima
Stickers: Prima Hello Pastel
Say it with crystals: Prima
Wood icons: Prima

Thank you so much for visiting my blog.
I'm always so grateful that you come to visit me.
I hope you always find something to be grateful for each and every day!!
