Frank Garcia DT Projects to Share...

Ok, still pinching myself that I am included on THE Frank Garcia DT! 

I have a few projects to share that I created for Prima's CHA Booth... I created these using the gorgeous Tales of You and Me Collection.

Firstly, I have a LO with a photo of my sweet daughter and "soon to be" son in law... eeek, that looks so odd to read back...LoL! The wedding is in July, and we are busy, busy getting things ready.

This collection is stunning and super versatile... 
A fave for me!


A little closer look... I used embroidery floss to make a weaved stitching effect in the background... Wood Icons, Ephemera/Metal Charms, and gorgeous Trims and Flowers here.

They are so cute together!

Next I have a fun framed canvas I made for Frank with all the photos of the beautiful Design Team Peeps! Yep, gorgeous Tales of You and Me again! 
I adore this collection, and I squeezed in a few 
extra Frank embellies and metals...


A bit closer look at these wonderful people and Frank's pretty collection...

It's a Girl... Maja Design Post

I am super excited to be posting on the Maja Design Blog for 
the very first time!
I am so honored to be included on this fabulous team and to get 
to play with such beautiful papers!
I am happy you have stopped by and I hope to inspire you!

This is a sweet newborn photo of my precious granddaughter…


I created this page using Vintage Baby Collection. I chose the soft pink papers with a touch of brown gingham. I wanted to keep it soft with a monochromatic feel to enhance my sweet photo. I added a soft cotton trim around the outer top layer for dimension and to call attention to the fussy cut scalloped edge of the paper.




I began this cluster with a small resin frame and a few tags cut from the papers. I layered a few die cut leaf vines and doily in a few different paper patterns. I topped that with beautiful flowers, a resin cherub and pearl accents.


I fussy cut a few Tags and Tickets, perfect for my photo and added more die cut pieces, flowers and resin here.
I finished the page with a mist of Storm Cloud Color Bloom, making sure to coat the flowers and added a few drips about the page.
It’s all about the details!

Products Used:
Maja Design Papers- It’s A Girl, Precious, Die Cuts
Prima- Rodanthe Roses, Resin Cherubs, Storm Cloud Bloom Spray, Pink Chalk Edger, Doily Die, Trim
Memory Box- Leaf Vine Die

My Stash- small flowers and pearl stickers (various sizes)

Reveal Time and a Farewell...

The BIG REVEAL has happened for September!

"Flying Unicorn transitions to Autumn - the time of year when all the goodness of Summer and Autumn come together for a prefect blend. Sept's "Your Passion Your Art" captures the essence of the fading Summer and the welcoming 
richness of a new." 

I created a couple of LOs using these beautiful kits...

A photo of Me and my sweet girl!

My Anna and her Sweet Fellow!




It's time for me to step down from Flying Unicorn's CT. I have enjoyed my time there and will certainly miss Alda and her sweet Creative Team...
 and of course those beautiful Kits! 
I am not going far though... 
I will see you all here, on FaceBook and around Live With Prima each month. 
Who knows where I might show up next!?  :) :) :)
