I recently noticed that Prima was looking for Design Team members. When they put out that call, I hesitated. Was I good enough? Could I get together enough projects in time? Could I wow their socks off?
I just wasn't sure if I should apply. But I got some very good advice from a friend...."it doesn't hurt to try". So...
My first project to enter for the design team is a favorite of mine. It's very original! It's my Outhouse with Mini Album!
I love the way it turned out! I'm so proud of it! I paid close attention to every little detail. I wanted it to look like a real outhouse.
I added a Prima branch to the side along with some Prima flowers from the March Special Delivery collection.
Isn't the inside cute? I even included a "potty hole"! Oh, and you can't forget the poopy paper. There is even a crescent moon window with screen. That was a challenge to cut that out.
I used the gorgeous Madeline collection of papers for my cute little mini album. The album is made out of toilet paper rolls! I put tags inside, giving more space for photos.
For the front of the album, I used another Prima flower along with a piece of ribbon flower. The colors of the Madeline papers were perfect for this album. The browns and greens are the ultimate colors for camping.
My second project is a crochet newsboy hat with Prima flowers adorning it! The flair button is from the Prima March Special Delivery kit (I love the March kit...can't you tell?). The large pink flower is from a kit that came in a tin, from Prima, along with other flowers, ribbon, and sequins.
I used another March kit flower, and a cute Prima fabric flower. So cute!
I love to crochet, and am really pleased with the way this hat turned out. I can't wait to wear it!
My last project is a beautiful Angel Dressform! I adore the way the wings turned out! It took me a long time for the wings. Each feather is made of paper, cut out by my Silhouette. I glued each one on separately on both sides of each wing. Then I used a bit of actual white feathers to cover the bases of the paper ones when I glued them on. I then painted them all over white to make sure it was the white white. I did a crackle effect on the dressform then made the dress out of fabric and paper. I used the March Prima Special Delivery kit to decorate it (including the paper). I trimmed it off with some lacey trim I had in my stash.
I'm in love with this project, and I hope you are, too! So these are my entries! Cross your fingers...only time will tell. I love Prima products! They are so beautiful, and fun to work with. There are so many ways to incorporate their products. The possibilities are endless!
