Happy Halloween Prima Syle


To all of my lovely OS friends HAPPY HALLOWEEN, and belated greetings to my Aussie friends for yesterday who celebrated Halloween.

Personally, we have never celebrated Halloween and I can honestly say that I have never been trick or treating LOL!!  But with saying this, I did have a whole lot of fun putting these Halloween inspired Prima projects together.

Make sure you hop on your broomsticks and zoom over to the Prima BLOG to check out the spook-tacular projects the DT have come up with for you all today.

In the meantime, I do have something a little spooky , a little bit wicked with a whole lot of PRIMA 'treats' to share today.

First up a little witch's 'couture' boot

I created the boot from black card stock and I have to confess that the constructing of it nearly did my head in LOL!!  It looked so much easier in my head than it turned out to be, let's just say that there was a LOT of tweaking,adjusting and just a couple of exasperated comments along the way... hehehe

Once the boot was assembled, it was embellished with an assortment of Prima Papers, Crystal Palace Vine and Splendor Leaves.

A splash of colour was added with a gorgeous Carlotta bloom and die cut pattered paper element which was misted a rich purple colour.

Some ornamental edging was added to finish off the top edge of the boot.

Ribbon bows adorn the back of the boot with Say It In Crystals scattered over the top of the bows.

#553821 Printery Col. Mulberry Paper 6” x 6”
#843519 Printery Col. Signature
#843342 Alla Prima Col. Fresco
#551339 SIIC
#550455  Trim Black n’ Cream
#551834 Crystal Palace – Black Snow
#553555 Splendor – Rust

552794 Carlotta - Tropics

So we now have the boot, but no witch is complete without a hat - some of you will recall already seeing this

.... And I did have lots of fun creating this

Now, for me there is nothing really cute about the real life bat and quite frankly they freak me out... but even I couldn't resist these

This variety is pretty cute Hey??

I have combined Prima TRICK OR TREATS 'Night Flight' and 'Bat Vine' with AGLOW 'Black Magic' and a gorgeous CARLOTTA 'Royale' bloom.

A Paper Mache hat was first painted with black glitter paint with tulle then wrapped around it.

 Prima Black Magic leaves were layered around the base of the hat.   The metallic shades and sugar glitter make these leaves 'glow' with gorgeousness!

A few Prima Glitter Twisters were also added along with a 'Bat Vine'.

Ribbon Bows and a gorgeous Carlotta bloom finish the transformation.

Anna's Craft Cupboard Cock-a-doodle-doo Reveal


A layout to share today.
This one has been created from the new Kaiser Cock-a-doodle-doo Collection which is available now at ANNA'S CRAFT CUPBOARD.

I had so much fun putting this one together.

The Cock-a-doodle-doo collection has some super cute animal elements but this time around I wanted to concentrate on the gorgeously bright colours of the collection.  I also made a happy discovery contained within the new collection pack - the rainbow and clouds. 

I have cut a couple of strips from one of the 12" x 12" patterned papers but the majority of the patterned papers used have all come from the 6.5" x 6.5" Paper Pads - I find these so versatile.  

I did add a splash of brighter green for contrast from another patterned paper that I had in my stash.

The title has been created from some of the new Prima typography alphabet stickers - these ones are from the Printery range and are the perfect size especially for creating a long worded title.  These are also available from Anna's, check them out HERE  .
I mixed things up a bit and Dear Lizzy glitter Thickers were used for the word 'rainbows'. 

'Wishing you blue skies and rainbows always'

Prima {Some Kind Of Wonderful}

 Hello Lovely People,

I have a layout created for Prima to share with you today.

The photo was taken recently of my two girls, who,  for the most part, enjoy spending time with each other.  Where one is, the other is not too far away.
This photo fills my heart with much joy

I just adore the soft and delicate Prima Romantique paper that has been used for the base of the layout.  This was combined with the softer lilac and paler olive toning's of  Prima Londonerry.     

Some doilies cut from Prima acrylic packaging have also been added. 

A bouquet of Prima blooms both new and older add a touch of girly prettiness.  You will also spy a Bretton Vine, Splendor Leaves, Meredith Butterfly and some Resin tucked amongst the layers.

To create a decorative accent to the resin bird house, an architecture resin cornice was attached across the top.  A little Say It In Crystal glittery heart was the perfect size for filling the little heart crevice.

A larger butterfly element was die cut from patterned paper.  The antenna's were created from a pastel twister as well as flight path.
