Valentine's Day Card for Ingvild Bolme DT & Prima Feature

Hi lovelies, just a really quick post sharing my Valentines Day card that I created for Ingvild Bolme DT and Prima Marketing.  I have used Jodie Lee's Delight Collection and Ingvild's beautiful new resins that will be available soon.  The chipboard Eiffel Tower is from Imaginarium Designs.

Notice the little aqua tassel ? It is really beautiful, and adds just that little sparkle of whimsy on your projects.

Ingvild Bolme Design Team Shares ...... and a change of direction.

Well it's been a long time since I shared my work, there have been alot of changes in the wind for me.  Firstly we have moved house and are now settled in at Mt. Barker but the major job of moving and re-settling really shook up my normality, and hence the absence of projects from this blog.  In addition I am embarking on a photography career, with my focus on dancers.  This is such a natural progression for me being a ex-professional dancer, and being able to capture bodies in motion is both a delight and a challenge.  So as a result you won't be seeing a great volume of work come out of my studio.  However, I couldn't imagine life without scrapbooking so I am continuing with Ingvild Bolme, creating with her beautiful products over the next 7 months.  
She is my DT of choice, so suited to my style and creative neiche.

Just wanted to share some work that I have created for Ingvild.
This first layout has a shabby chic romantic style all rolled up in one Christmas layout!  I used the Winter Memories Paper from Tilda (which I adore) and lots of spellbinders !!  The chipboard title and flourish are new releases from Imaginarium Designs.

Lots and lots of pretty layering !!!

Two beautiful frames captures the sweet picture and the bird looking down at my Madison in, where both frames draws our attention to the two most important parts of the layout. I have added so many details - fussy cutting, punched edges and details, paper flowers, glam, stamps and so on, beside the resin embellishment from the Shabby Chic Treasures that you will find pretty much everywhere on my work.  I admit it, Im a resin addict !!!!

This last layout is again of Madison and her calisthenic coach Brooke.  I have used Prima Paper from the Delight Collections and more gorgeous resin.

Thank you so much for heading over here.  If you managed to find your way after SO long, I really appreciate it.  Have a beautiful and blessed Christmas.

Prima / Ingvild Bolme Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to the Prima / Ingvild Bolme Design Team Blog Hop !!!  I am thrilled that you are participating, there are some amazing projects for you to see.

Ingvild has designed some amazing new products for Prima for the new Summer Release, and I would just love to share some of my favourites with you.

So here is my contribution to the Blog Hop.  I have used so many of Ingvild’s products and I just wanted to show you how adaptable they are to use on any project.

This little garden chair was one of my favourite releases from the Shabby Chic Treasure Range, its so quaint and just adds a little whimsy to the project.

Beautiful resin corners, covered with Pastel Blue Chalk Edgers.  How shabby chic does this resin
look ?  And the chalk edgers are so easy to apply.

I have altered a Shabby Chic Treasure Fairy with the new Chalk Edgers in Pastel Pink and Pastel Blue to custom colour the resin to blend in with the papers and embellishments.

Please go over and check out the other Design Team Members Blogs as their projects are absolutely beautiful.

Thank you so much for coming over and visting my blog.  I really hoped you loved what I created, it's really not that hard using Ingvild’s beautiful products.

Welcome to National Scrapbook Day

Happy National Scrapbook Day Ladies and Gents ..... and welcome to Prima's International 

I just want to share with you today, a project that was up on the Prima Marketing Design Team Blog last week, and a project that is SO easy to create.   All you need is a beautiful Prima vine, Ingvild Bolme's gorgeous Shabby Chic Resins and Junkyard Findings, some Prima Flowers.  You can custom color it according to your studio or home decor and it makes a gorgeous present for Mother's Day.

So here is the finished dome...... the dome actually is a cupcake dome which I bought at a 
South Australian cheap shop for A$5 !!

Here is what it looks like inside.  The window has a transparency behind it to allow for some extra detail and layering, and the window is just adhered to the base with a hot glue gun.

I especially loved fiddiling with the top of the dome, this vine is simply wrapped around the knob and secured with a little hot glue.  The pink rose and birdy are adhered lastly.  They just add that little touch of whimsy to the project.

Down the bottom I have added a Ingvild Bolme clock and hands and some more beautiful Prima Flowers.  

I really hope you loved this project as much as I loved creating it.

I seem to be on a dome oddessy at the moment, and I have this project coming up in full detail on my blog soon.

Please, Please go and visit Stephanie Miller & Solange Marques -  being on the bottom of the list we often miss out on traffic, and I'm sure she has created something absolutely gorgeous for you to look at.  Here is the list again, just in case you have missed out any of the designers and their amazing works.

Lastly but by no means least, don't forget ......

Classes start at 9 am ET and run all day long! Most of them are held at the Prima office (excepting Cari and Sharon) and all will have a live chat moderated by Prima starlets.

Thanks so much for taking the time to come and visit .....

Mixed Media Madness

Hey guys, firstly I want to say thank you to all the wonderful ladies that left me a congratulations comments for my new DT. You guys make me feel so wonderful - you need to know that.

Ok, down to business. Some shares for this week .....

This layout was created for the Prima Blog for our Multi Media Week.  I have used the Hello Pastel range and the gorgeous Blue Fern Chipboard Clock.  

I have used Golden's Light Molding Paste (which I ADORE) with a Donna Downey 12x12 Stencil.  You can see the results in the close up, and I just love the extra raised texture and what it does for your design.  The mix of watercolors are from a watercolor pack down at my local $2 shop.  Awesome ha ??  I love the way the colors run into each other without contaminating the solid block of color.  Yum.

The next share was my take on Prima's monthly "Pinspin" OTP project.

So I saw this little gem, made from a cake tin.  I mean how fantastic is this idea.  My jaw dropped.  Anyhow since I saw this picture i have created three of these.  So here is my verision for Prima.

Using Jodie Lee's Divine Range.

My last share is a layout I created for CHA, which seems like an eternity ago.  Again I have chosen to use the Divine Range from Prima.  Just can't seem to get enough of it.

Short and sweet post.  Thanks so much for dropping by again.  Have a wonderful weekend.

Never say Never Again ....

It seems like a long time.  Actually it is.  I started designing Scrapbook Pages about 6 months after Emma was born in 2003.  I needed something creative to fill the void left by not dancing.  At that time For Keeps Magazine was the premier mag in Australia and they held annual competitions for scrapbookers nation wide.  It was suggested I send an entry in.  I mean what did I have to loose?  Well I receive the Award for Design and Composition, and since then, the last 9 years have been spent creating and working for various manufacturers and scrapbooking publications.  There hasn't been a time I could remember where I didn't have a due date looming or something to create. 

My term with Prima Marketing comes to an end in June ( I can't even imagine my life not designing for Prima), and I promised myself to have time off and start experimenting creating stuff I want to do.  No Design Teams.  None.  So when I was approached by Ingvild, I had such a mixed reaction to her offer. I have always respected and adored her work (I mean who doesn't), and my immediate gut reaction was to jump at this chance.  Then I remembered my promise to myself.  No DT's.  Creating for myself.  Total autonomy.   

But then I spent a week thinking about it.  And thinking about it.  Pretty much everything I do has Ingvild's resins or Shabby Chic Treasures on it anyhow.  They are products I adore, and so very very me.   And then there was the thought of her future releases.  Sigh.  It just had to be a "Yes" didn't it !!  So here I am announcing that I am thrilled to be on the Ingvild Bolme DT for 2013.  And I cant wait to start designing.

So here is the team.  They are truly amazing.  Go over and have a look at their art.  Beautiful.
