Live With Prima Wrap Up

Thanks so much to everyone who came by for my show this evening. I was able to share two of the three layouts I'd done. Unfortunately, things froze up on my end, but not before I was able to show my two favorite glitter techniques. If you didn't get the chance to watch the show, it was recorded. You can go to ustream.com and find the Prima Channel. It will be there. As promised, I have a giveaway. Just create a page using one of the techniques I shared and link it up to this post. I'll randomly pick a winner one week from today, February 21, to win a Prima prize pack!

Here are the three layouts with some detail shots. First is this elegant page, suitable for the older guys in in our lives.



I cut a felt frame in half and peeled off the backing a bit at a time, adding two different colors of glitter as I went.



To frame the photo, I sprayed Glimmer Mist onto a mask. Then I stamped it onto white cardstock. Once dried, I cut it out.



Silver stars and crystal sultan centers embellish the page.

This next page uses another technique using glitter and Prima masks.



I painted modpodge onto the mask, then added glitter. Once the mask was peeled a way, a glitter pattern remained. After letting it dry overnight, I punched circles with a 1 3/4" punch, then used the circles as embellishments on the page.




Have you noticed that I haven't used a single flower on either of these pages?? I think that's a first for me. But, Prima has so many other products that work perfectly for masculine pages.

This last page highlights Ryan's baseball pictures. This one doesn't have too many techniques, but uses some fun products that are perfect for boy pages.



I used some orange paper from the Paisley Road line, striped paper from Road Trip and green star paper from Spaceboy. The epoxy stickers are also from Spaceboy.

I love the voila felt with the stars and embellished it with orange glitter stars and epoxy stickers.



Glittered chipboard, more epoxy stickers and a piece of a crystal frame create the title.



As you can see, there are so many fun Prima products that are just perfect for masculine pages!

Don't forget, you have until the 21st to enter the giveaway.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ooh, these layouts are all wonderful! I love the little touches of glitter you added. I bet any girl loves to sprinkle some magical bling on her layout:)

Anabelle, I was glad to get to see what you did last night. I think it was the net that was the problem, the site wouldn't let me log out. I like the glitter techniques you showed & I would enjoy seeing more of your work in the future. THANKS, Deb_In_PA
