wishing you joy & happiness (card).

Hi everyone! It's the last day of February & I've made a card to share this week. 

I used the Glitz Design 6x6 paper packs & Tim Holtz kraft core for my base. The pretty pink papers are in the Hello Friend paper pack, which obviously makes it my favorite.
 That big flower came in my Prima grab bag, which I know are sold out, but there are still tons of great Prima items in stock in the store! You can see all of the flowers HERE.

Thanks for stopping by this week & visit my blog today for more details about  my card.

Lovely - Prima Scrapbook

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a scrapbook layout I made using the colors in this month's Prima Product Pick, lots of flowers from my Prima Grab Bags, a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists, and a few scraps from my Almanac Collection of papers.
I love the look of worn wood for scrapbook backgrounds lately....I just can't seem to get enough.
Adding bits of color to the background using my mists gives me just a hint of color while leaving the focus on my photo.
And who can resist a mixture of gorgeous blooms?  One of the great things about the grab bags is the mixture of goodies you get.

Be sure and check out the grab bags and other great products on sale now at Your Memories Here.

Live What You Love with Prima, Helmar and Ranger

Good afternoon friends! Emily here with a card I created using some wonderful products that you can find in the Your Memories Here store. I was in a card making mood, and had some odds and ends from various projects lying around, so I made this beauty. 

I stamped some words on my card, and then added the background piece, which is actually some packaging from some Prima flowers that I received in my 2012 Summer CHA Grab Bag. (There are still some left in the store! ) 

I used Vintage Photo Distress stain on the edges of the card, as well as on the background piece and tag. The jewels and flowers are from the Grab Bag, and everything except the tag was adhered with Helmar Decoupage. I added the tag with some Zapdots by Helmar, which I absolutely love!! 

Here are more views of the card. 

I hope you've enjoyed my card today! Enjoy the rest of your day!

Egg Hunt 2011

Hey everyone Heather here! I apologize for the late post but I've had quite the day today. I (regrettably) had my giant dogs leash wrapped around my wrist this morning at the park and someone threw a ball & he took off after it. So now I have this huge purple bruise and my whole arm and hand are sore :( haha 100% my fault though. So I'm posting an older page of mine but it was done using products from The Your Memories Here Store. :)

I used Glimmer Mist to create my background & lots of Prima flowers as well :)

I hope everyone has a great week!

Thanks for looking.

Peace & love.

Dude - Pink Paislee

Hi YMH fans!  Dana here today sharing this layout for my last post for Your Memories Here.  It has been a joy and an honor to share my work on this team for the past year.  I wanted to leave you all with a smile and I hope this page does that!  I love this photo of my brother.  It's not often that I get to use bright colors and flowers for a masculine page, but I think it really works here!

The base of this layout is a piece of Pink Paislee Mistables Cardstock.  I added flowers and letters from my Prima Grab Bag. I love the texture of these Prima alpha stickers!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Please stop by the Your Memories Here Store. The NEW Prima collections will be there soon!

blessings of home.

Today I have a layout to share using the Prima hexagon net/chicken wire stamp (again). 

I used old dirty road Prima chalk ink - I love these little ink pads & they're only $2! Also from Prima, I used their Say It In Crystals. There are tons of pretty colors to choose from in the store. Lastly, I used some flowers from my Prima grab bag. Mine are called Camille but these are similar in the store.

This photo was taken with  my brother's new Samsung phone at Thanksgiving. Not the greatest quality for printing but I wanted to scrapbook it. The background paper is by Prima (from my grab bag) & the "smile," the orange, & the striped patterned paper is by Cosmo Cricket. The Hey Sugar collection is probably my favorite from them.

So that's what I have for today. If you want more, visit me on my blog: Markland & Main.

Bird Cage - Home Decor

Hi everyone!  Nancy here today to share with you a project I made using some of my favorite supplies from my Your Memories Here Prima grab bag.

I love that spring is just around the corner and we have had, until yesterday, the most glorious weather.  I couldn't resist bringing a little of the gorgeous sunshine into my home by creating a home decor item.

I had found this little bird cage at a local shop and couldn't resist adding a few flowers from my grab bag.  Blues and oranges just seemed to scream spring to me.

 I dyed some seam binding with a bit of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and scrunched for a shabby bow.

I love the combination of flowers both old and new.  Some from the Romance Novel line, some from Zephyr, and some from collections gone by.

Love the Art Inside You

Good afternoon YMH fans! Emily here today with a shipping tag I altered using a few items you can find in the Your Memories Here Store. 

For my tag, I first used a stencil and modeling paste to create the herringbone design. After it dried, I colored the tag with various mists including Trunk Bay and Patina Glimmer mists from the store. 

Check out the color...

After the mists had dried, I used a Prima Build a Swirl stamp to add more texture to the tag and heart. You can't really see the swirls, but you can see some texture. :) I used some Say it in Crystal Hearts by Prima on the heart and on my chipboard arrow. A sketch pen was used to add doodling, words and to trace around the modeling paste, heart and arrow for more dimension. I used Helmar Zapdots to give the heart dimension, and so it would stand out among the other textures already on the tag. 

As you can see, in a small tag, you can get a LOT of texture and dimension! It's one of my favorite things about doing mixed media work... the amount of layering and dimension you can add to even a small area! 

To purchase any of the products from the store used in my tag today, please click on the image of the product below. :) 

Thank you for stopping by today! Enjoy your week!

ATC 2 with Prima

Hi friends :) It's sue here back with another ATC card creation using crafting goodness from Your Memories  Here.  Now this was a fun little card to make using all Prima from the Craftsman Collection. I love hot air balloons. There's just something so appealing about them. I used some Faber Castell Gelatos to create the background then used a stamp from the Craftsman goody bag to add some detail along the side. I then applied some self-adhesive chipboard pieces and some wooden buttons and Voila! I thank you for looking and I am REALLY looking forward to the Sweet Retreat coming up in June!! If your interested in going, hurry and get your tickets as the classes are filling up fast! Your in for a special treat!! You can read all the details on Kristina's store site following the link above. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!

Mine - Glitz Design

Happy Friday! Dana here sharing a layout I created using the gorgeous Glitz Design Hello Friend collection and a vintage family photo.  I LOVE the color palette of this collection!  Several of these colors are also prominent in older Glitz collections so I was able to incorporate embellishments from the Vintage Love and Beautiful Dreamer lines to help use up some of my older supplies!

Here is a close-up of my old family photo.  How cute are these two?!  I'm loving my Great Great Grandmother's dress and her shoes are fabulous!

I added some goodies from my Prima Grab Bag to the left side of my photo. I built this embellishment cluster with flowers from the the Prima Almanac collection and a beautiful Shabby Chic Treasure Resin Cherub.

I love these Puffy Word Stickers!  They add a fantastic pop of color and a bit of shine.

This Giant Rhinestone has a cool heart pattern and really catches the light.  Unlike other clear rhinestones on the market, the Glitz Rhinestones have a finish that is similar to the popular brilliant diamond cut, so they really shine! Under the bow is a Glitz Peek-A-Boo Overlay.

I created layers of flowers here with Glitz Whatnots and some fussy cut flowers. I used two different patterned papers for the base of this page and I covered the seam with some Glitz Crepe Trim.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out the Your Memories Here Store.

Supplies: Patterned Paper: Glitz Design; Overlays: Glitz Design; Die-Cuts: Glitz Design; Stickers: Glitz Design; Crepe Trim: Glitz Design; Rhinestone: Glitz Design; Resin Cherub: Prima; Flowers: Prima; Leaves: Prima; Marker: Ranger; Paint: Ranger; Other: Ribbon

just BE you [card].

Hello everyone & happy Valentine's day! Today I'm sharing a card...

I made this card using the Glitz Design 6x6 paper packs & Tim Holtz kraft core cardstock. I used some papers from Yours Truly & Cashmere Dame. I also used the Prima hexagon net/chicken wire stamp that is so trendy right now. You really have to check this out - only $5.99!

I used Tim Holtz distress inks in faded jeans & antique linen on the sentiment & circle. The sentiment is stamped with the faded blue jeans & then I used the antique linen with the hexagon net stamp for a muted interesting background on the sentiment circle.

Thanks for stopping by today! :)

Sandy Toes

Hi everyone, Nancy here today to share a layout I made with some of the yummy goodies I purchased at Your Memories Here.  Each Prima release I always am sure to pick up either a grab bag or a complete collection to play with.  From Summer CHA, I purchased a grab bag that came with some of the most amazing Zephyr collection goodies.

Sitting on the beach in Hawaii last summer, watching the children surf and relaxing were really lovely.  And of course I had to take a photo of my sandy feet.  lol  And the gorgeous Zephyr collection from Prima was just perfect for that beach shot.  I love all the flowers that are available in this collection.

 I love all the goodies that always come in the Your Memories Here collection packs and grab bags.

Each collection pack or grab bag is full of the prettiest, most fun Prima products available that release.  And often coordinates wonderfully with items from previous releases.  Including some older flourishes, lovely resins and flowers.

I did quite a bit of distressing with my Prima distress tool as well as adding a few extra bits of trim from Prima as well as my stash.

Well, Back to work....
