Prima Flowers & A Giveaway!

Happy Thursday! It's getting so close to Halloween - are you ready? I'm not!

Today we have a little inspiration for you from Designer Sandi Clarkson and yours truly! We've been playing with some Prima flowers and having way too much fun with them! Let's take a look:

Birthday Cards by Sandi Clarkson

Sandi used the gorgeous Bo Bunny Olivia collection and Prima Faience Bradstreet and Emily Flowers to create these three amazing cards! Take a closer look:

Sandi used Olivia papers and Chocolate Ruffle Wrap on this card. Love her placement of the flowers!

Sandi used the Olivia Cut-Outs for a super-quick card! Love that idea!

Simple and elegant!

Sandi wasn't done with those flowers! She created a gorgeous corsage that can be worn on the lapel of a jacket or blouse with some of the Prima Faience Flowers, an old brooch from her jewelry box, a flower she handmade out of ribbon and some lace! Take a look:

Beautiful! What a great way to save some money and have the satisfaction of having made it yourself!

I played with some of the Prima Faience - Cecilia Flowers. I thought they looked nice for fall and paired them with Basic Grey Pyrus in a fun little home decor project. Take a look:

Happy Autumn Pumpkin
by GenCraft (Floren)

I found a large wooden Jack-O-Lantern in my stash that I've had stored for quite some time! I traced around it for the pumpkin shape onto chipboard and my Pyrus paper. I used some Pyrus Chipstickers, Prima Bling and Prima Faience - Cecilia to decorate my fall pumpkin! Fun!

  2. I can't leave a post on just one thing...all the cards and the pumpkin are absolutely awesome! My all time "if I could have any embellishment I want" dream - a floor to ceiling shelving unit filled with Prima Flowers! I am working on my holiday cards...sure could use some Prima!

  3. So pretty!!! Love all the cards and the home decor...fall is one of my favorite seasons although we don't see much of it here in S. FL. I ♥ fall colors.
    Hugs, T

  4. Beautiful projects and the Prima flowers add a wonderful finishing touch. Prima has a fab range of gorgeous flowers which I'm only just starting to discover. They certainly add that touch of luxury and elegance.
