Prima Victorian Christmas Mini Album

I had made this mini album back in December.  I love the images, colors, flowers and embellishments in the Victorian Christmas collection.

The base of the album is made of chipboard and die cut using an Accucut mini album die set.  It is bound together with the Bind It All.

If you would like to see a video detailing each page, please watch my Youtube video:

Prima Day 10 Christmas Flower

And on the 10th day of the Christmas challenge, Prima wants us to use flowers.  On my card, a flower from the Victorian Christmas collection Peace and Holly takes center stage.  On the base of the card, I used a Finnabair 12x12 checkerboard stencil and white acrylic paint.  I added a flourish frame die cut and some papers from the Victorian Christmas collection.
I did simple this time on my card.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Prima Day 8 Gold Foil

For the Prima 12 Days of Christmas Day 8: Color Bloom Sprays, I created a card using Gold Foil color bloom spray.  I first sprayed a Tabs and Tags Resist Patterns tag as my focal point.  On the card base, I splattered some Gold Foil color.  Added a strip of pattern paper from the Victorian Christmas A4 paper pad, and some gold glitter paper along the bottom.  Wrapped some Prima jute trim in sage around the card and added some flowers in the corner.

Prima Day 6: Relic and Artifact Ornament

Here is another project made for Prima's 12 Days of Christmas challenge.  Day 6 encourages us to use treasures from the Relics and Artifacts collection. 

Again, I used the pillow box die and die cut an opening.  I have the relic hanging from a chain inside the pillow box.  The opening is framed with some glitter paper.  Behind the relic is a gold Prima leaf.  The "Merry Christmas" chipboard piece is from the Victorian Christmas collection.  Added some lace along the bottom and a Prima flower on top.  Some twine is tied to the chain inside and is used to hang the ornament.

Prima Day 3: Ornament

For my project today, I made an ornament using the Tim Holtz pillow box die.  Then I die cut a circle opening to insert Finnabair's metal embellishment. Prima's 12 Days of Christmas challenge, Day 3 is to use Finnabair's products.

The embellishments are from the Victorian Christmas collection: flower, "Merry Christmas" wood icon, chipboard piece, berries, and red glittered leaves.  The gold lace is also by Prima.
Here is a side view:

Prima Day 1 Christmas card

Hello!  I've been busy creating trying to catch up to the challenges on the Prima blog.  They've started their 12 Days of Christmas challenge and I've created a card for Day 1: Victorian Christmas.

I love the Victorian Christmas collection.  I used the A4 paper pad, flowers, and a wood icon piece.  The sentiment was stamped, the tag die cut from the paper collection, and added a strip of gold glitter paper on the side and a glittered snowflake. 

Thank you for stopping by!

Thank You Card

I'm really enjoying playing with my new Altenew stamps.  This card features the Painted Flowers set.  I'll have many more to share.

After stamping, I used the butterfly die from Memory Box to create interest to the focal stamping.  The Thanks sentiment is a die from Little Yellow Bicycle that I bought from Hobby Lobby.  Added some ribbon and pink rhinestones to complete the card.

I am participating in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Thanks/Thanksgiving.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
