Prima: August PPP!

Good morning :)

I'd like to share with you today the card I created for this month's Prima Product Picks :)

"Daydreaming About Us"
I've combined lots of new products on this card; papers from Coffee Break & Epiphany collections, Color Bloom sprays, lots of beautiful new flowers, new trim, and a sweet 3D embellishment from Epiphany for my sentiment.

Such a stunning pastel palette and so many goodies from which to be inspired!!

Here are some closeups of my card:

I'm so pleased with all the glitter available in the new flowers! Who doesn't love a little extra sparkle?? And all the roses...roses are my favorite Prima flowers :)

The jute trims are awesome for getting that unkempt look on your projects!

Prima: Forever Green Garden Journal

It seems fitting that today's post features a garden journal, as it is my gardening and foraging that has kept me so busy and away from my blog :)

If you haven't yet checked out the amazing Prima collection "Forever Green", you must do so! It is stunning- and absolutely perfect for this bountiful time of year...and just what I needed to record my gardening escapades this year. 

"Garden Journal 2014"
Prima has a ton of new gorgeous trims, which I've incorporated here and throughout. I love the natural, raw texture of these neutral trims for my nature-based project.

Here I've used the Forever Green cling mount stamp set, crochet icons, and bling from the 3-D stickers set.

So many fussy cut details from this beautiful collection!...
