As Prima designers we often receive wonderful boxes filled to the brim with all sorts of Prima goodies! There's always a gorgeous mix of all of the lines. It is always fun to see what each individual designer loves and today I am sharing what I am loving in my creative space and why.

I was inspired by the gorgeous colors of the pumpkins from the “Time to Flourish” October pages and thought I would create a layout where those images could really shine. I decided to mirror my focal design in the top corner using papers from the 8x8 “Time to Flourish” October pages. This is such a fun look and adds interest to the page. I used a chalk ink to stamp drips on the page. Using the chalk ink allowed me to smear the ends of the drips easily.

How fun was it to use the Groove Tool to apply ink to my project??? Very! I was able to apply my ink easily and found that I saved time in the process.

October ushers in a new season filled with chilly nights, gorgeous falling leaves, and crisp apple harvest! (Unless you live in the southern hemisphere, then you have the exact opposite!) Either way Prima's fresh palette will bring a twist of warm richness to your projects.

"Breast Cancer. It's a horrible disease that affects so many around us: friends, moms, sisters, aunts, neighbors, co-workers. And, although the majority affected are women, this is a disease that also attacks men. Let's do what we can this month to bring awareness to the devastation breast cancer causes. Prevention is the key!"
I am from a family of breast cancer survivors and I designed this card to show my love and support for those who are enduring this struggle.

World’s Fair is one fantastic collection. The vibrant color palette served as my inspiration for this fun and carefree layout. I used an elegant circle embellishment in the center of my page to mimic the shape of a Ferris wheel.

This layout was created using the Mon Amour collection. The thing I love most about this collection is its versatility. I used a tag from the Large Tag Album to mat my photo. I then framed my photo using red liquid pearls. I added embossed chipboard, twine and ribbon to give different textures to the page.

The Mon Amour collection is absolutely stunning! I used the 5x5 Mixed Media Box from the Staples collection to create this beautiful set. This allowed me to use various mediums for stenciled designs and collages.

I love using lanterns through-out my home. Today I am sharing a lantern to be used indoors as an accent for my craft studio. I started with a white lantern from my local art supply store. I kept the design simple by adding just a few key pieces. At the very top of the lantern, I applied black sand texture paste and allowed it to dry overnight. Next, I added metal embellishments to each section of the top of the lantern.

This project was truly a labor of love. Every summer my family and I go to my great-grandparent’s farm to celebrate another year of family love. It always surprises me how we grow and grow each year with new family members attending for the first time. It’s good to see old faces and welcome the new.

The new Julie Nutting baby themed cling stamps are the perfect touch for projects featuring our littlest ones.

You will never say “Bah Humbug” when you see this gorgeous Christmas Carol themed collection. I used my Cricut die cutting machine to create this card. I always like to create interest with my cards. I find the easiest way to do this is with the shape of the card itself. I used solid red cardstock to create the base of the card. I then used papers and images from the collection to create accents and embellishments.
