Special Delivery Prima June

post signatureI finally got a chance to work with the Special Delivery box this month from Prima
I have had my eyes on them for awhile! And i was NOT disappointed!
There is something so relaxing about opening a box of goodies, that is perfectly 
coordinated for you already! You just grab it and start having fun! I had this spool on my desk
for awhile now, with this heavy duty rope. Finally decided to make it my anchor spool :)
The stencil in this months kit is amazing, so thats what i used as my template for the anchor. 
Easy peezy! I've never been a big beach themed person, but this box just converted me!
i am in love with these colors! Hope you all like it, go grab your box this month and be ready for
next months reveal :) You cannot beat the value! HUGS!
Grab your box here :)

 And here is what all came in this months box!!!!!! Hello gorgeousness :)

Prima Marketing Design Team ... yayyyyy

post signatureWOOOHOOOOOOO!
 i figure this is my blog, so its a safe place for me to scream and cry and let it all out!!! hehe
I made it , I made it! I cannot express how happy I am ! 
I know all of us who go after this dream, and not making it year after year was so hard. 
So to make it thsi year was teh most amazing blessing! I honestly did not think 
I would ever make the "core" design team. I LOVE being on Live With Prima
, and will continue to do so :) And now to have part of both teams is just a dream!!!!!!!!!
I want to take a minute to say to anyone who tried and did not make it, you are
AMAZING! Do not doubt your talents for a minute! Keep trying! Never give up on that dream! 
I <3 you all, and I know the sadness and hurt that comes from not making  it. I have felt
it myself many years. I give you all a huge hug!!!!!!!!! I can only imagine
the monumental task of narrowing it down to about 20 ladies. 
Run over to the blog and see this list of pure talent! To be among these gals
is a dream come true!
Huge Huge thank you to Sharon and my sweet sweet Cari!!!!!

Prima DT Call

Hello everyone, well like most of you all, Prima is of course the DREAM TEAM.
I am currently a Live With Prima Instructor, but that is a
different portion of the Prima family. And I still have that dream of being on
the original design team. The added bonus of creating multiple projects a month
using the BEST supplies in the biz..... yep that's my dream! I always feel like doing altered
art vs doing layouts puts me at a disadvantage, but I am giving it a go anyways.
I have to thank the sweetest lady ever, Cari Fennel, for believing in me and adding me to
the incredible Live With Prima team. I LOVE sharing projects with you all each month.
Teaching is always my goal. For most of these projects I linked the video tutorial for anyone who wants to take a peep ;)  I want to show how you can create unique pieces of altered art!
Nothing makes me happier than finding some discarded treasure that can be
transformed into a beauty. So here are some of my favorite Prima based projects from the last
couple years. Fingers and toes crossed that I make it. And best of luck to
everyone else applying! May your dreams come true! Hugs!
Ok, so I will start with some of my newer projects created for this DT call :)
Remember NOTHING is safe with me lol, I will alter ANYTHING!
Here is my altered globe....
I used the Archivist Collection with bits of other lines :)

Here is my project for my latest LWP show
I altered one of the Finnabair Birdhouses with tons of art mediums! Love them!
And the new Butterfly Collection. So pretty!

This was the Julie Nutting Dollhouse turned printers tray
 This is for my upcoming Ustream on the 12th of May :) Hope you will join in!

And here are some more of my past pieces using lots of yummy Prima!!!!

The junkyard findings from the Ingvild range are some of my FAVES!
Halloween doesn't have to be scary hehe!

 My first art journal spread
 Altered box for the Prima PPP ( I won that month and had
a heart attack of joy!!!!!! I felt so honored and blessed!)
The PPP's and BAP's are always SO FUN! And such
a good challenge . 
 Bee happy ;)
 I LOVE the Epiphany line. Altered this phone using it.
An older piece , altered paint palette.
I love to use the wooden trays the wooden icons come in.
As part of the Ingvild Bolme DT in the past we had to create
an Easter project, this was mine :) I love Easter pastels!
 This piece is much older, but it was my first gumball machine, and is very
special to me :) Prima works with EVERYTHING!
And lastly just a fun little recycled piece. I HATE throwing
out all of my old paintbrushes! So I used them on a canvas, with some
Prima goodness!

I do occasional layouts too hehe! And I love to do them when I get a chance!!!

I used lots of chalk edgers and have a video tutorial on this one :)
 Prima Vines are my all time fave items!!!!! Especially these ones!
I usually print my pix on transparency film. That way the gorgeous
Prima paper can show through!
 ahhh , the Lyric collection!
This one doesn't have Prima paper, but it has my favorite flower from Prima ever!!!
The Odette! I must have used a kazillion of these! And the Mechanicals
from Finnabair are heavenly! And I must admit I am very much addicted
 to the Ingvild chalk edgers! I use them on EVERY single project. All the 
extra color here is added by them! They are perfect!

Now these next few projects were from my term with G45, They do have Prima flowers on them ( of course!!!!)but not a lot of paper, but I feel they truly show my LOVE for altered art. So I wanted to show them. . . .

I LOVE to make dreamcatchers!
 Altered Skillet ( LOL nothing is safe!)
Altered coffee grinder
Can you tell i LOVE Prima vines??? hehe
 This was all handmade , I have a Tutorial on the cupcakes, so easy
and fun to make! 
PHEW! That was a LOT, but I really wanted to show my love for Prima!!!
It would be the highest honor to make it, and create altered pieces using all their amazing
supplies! A girl can dream right ;)
Thank you very much for your consideration :)
