May day ingvildbox1
Ingvild Bolme decorated a normal, regular, run-of-the-mill box and turned it in to quite the showstopper!

May day ingvild box2

Look at the gorgeous details and techniques Ingvild used! The paper is applied in torn pieces with Ranger's gesso for a nice, shabby effect.

Each angle of the box is given loads of attention with the ribbon border doubling as a "hinge" for keeping the lid attached when it is  opened.

Designer Day: Come Meet Birgit Koopsen!

Today we have a very talented gal from The Netherlands to introduce to you! Birgit Koopsen is a wonderful scrapbooker who teaches all over the world, a fabulous person to work with, and is extra cute to boot!

 

We cannot wait for you to get to know her, and her country, a little bit better!

 

...........................................................................................................................................

Hi everyone! I’m thrilled to be here on the Prima blog to tell a bit more about myself today!

5 bw


I’m Birgit Koopsen and I live with my soul mate for 25 years and our 3 beautiful kids in a little village called Winsum in the north of the Netherlands. My husband has his own company (insurances/mortgages) and has his office at home in the former garage. I have my scrap studio also at home so we get to spend much time every day together with the kids, which is great! We have 2 daughters and a son (Anne 1994, Lennart 1995, and Marlijn 2002).

 

As the Dutch befits they go to school by bike: the youngest in our own village, the 2 oldest go to a village 10 km from here. I read one day that most Dutch households have more bikes than family members and, for us, that’s true. We have 7 bikes! We almost always take a couple of bikes on vacation!

We live in a wonderful house in a quiet street with a little harbor just across the street.

The house with the double red roofs on the right side of the apartment building is our house. The room underneath the smaller roof is my studio, the room underneath my studio is my husbands office.


Air photo 2


We have a little boat and love to spent our free days on the water.

I love the country side where I live, especially in this time of year, when it’s all green and fresh. I love that we live in an area with so much water! But I really, really love the mountains in combination with either the sea or rivers, and since our country is so flat that you can see today who’s coming to visit you tomorrow, our favorite places to go on vacation are the south of France and Italy. The nature and the Mediterranean atmosphere, the food, the relaxed attitude and of course the wonderful weather are the ingredients for a perfect vacation! These countries make good scenery for beautiful pictures too!

I started scrapbooking officially 8 years ago, but ever since I was a teenager I’ve been enjoying photography and always "pimped" my photo albums, I just didn't know there was a name for it and special products. I've tried several crafts before I started scrapbooking; oil painting, model drawing, sculpted and much more. But after a while I always got bored with using the same technique over and over again. I was so happy when I found a magazine in the craft store one day about scrapbooking!  I love being able to use whatever technique I want in this hobby! There’s always something new to try! Besides that I love how it keeps all the beautiful memories of special events and everyday life alive. Especially for my children!

 

..........................................................................................................................................

 The projects I want to share with you today are two door hangers and a layout.


The picture on this layout was taken during a boat trip on Lake Garda in Italy. We spent the most perfect day on the lake. We brought a pick nick basket and enough drinks for a whole day. In the middle of the lake we anchored the boat and went swimming and sun bathing and when we returned back in the evening we had a lovely dinner on a terrace in Desenzano while it was getting dark and we viewed the hundreds of lights of the little villages along the lake. A day to never forget!

The second door hanger is made out of wood and the text welcome was already on it when I bought it. I first stamped and embossed the tree on the hanger using white embossing powder. Then I used the Prima favorites Glimmer Mist  color kit from Tattered Angels to color it. I loved how the mist pooled in the lower parts of the embossed tree so I let the excess to dry as it was.

Happy Good Friday!

Don't forget! The Prima Design Team call ends TONIGHT!

 

We have some more special Easter projects for you on this very special day...

Easter anabelle rabbit1

Anabelle O'Malley journaled about a very special Easter tradition they carry on in their house on this precious layout!

Journaling:

"The Evil Rabbit arrived in our house in the 70s. He was originally a flower planter. It became the family joke to put him at Daddy's place at the dinner table. He'd say, 'Get that Evil Rabbit out of here!" because he thought it had a sinister face. When Daddy died I inherited the rabbit. Now he makes his appearance every time we set the table in the dining room. Ryan thinks it's so funny when he comes for a 'visit'. Who would have thought that a ceramic flower holder would have such a legacy?"

Designer Day: Come Meet Liana Suwandi!

Today we have a very special designer to introduce you to!

Liana Suwandi joined our team for the first time last June. She is a pro at multi-photo layouts, as well as creating beautiful cards and altered items. Her love for her family truly shines through everything she does! We cannot wait for you to get to know her better!

..................................................................................................................................

 

Hi everyone! Liana here. I'm really excited to be here for Prima's Designer Day.

 

So…a little about myself, where I live, and where I’m from:

 

I originally am from Jakarta, Indonesia (born and raised there until I graduated from high school), then I decided to study abroad (first destination was Sydney, Australia for about 3 months) before changing directions to Houston, TX. I got my Bachelor of Science in Hotel & Restaurant Management. I’d been working in the industry for a few years before I realized that this field is not where I belong!

 
My husband and I were high school sweethearts. We got married in 2001 and relocated to Dallas, TX.

IMG_4403_BWsmall

If you ask me when did I start scrapbooking? The year 2001 was the first time I explored scrapbooking. I can still remember the first time I was in a Michaels store and bought my first CK magazine (November issue) and I talked myself into the fact that someday I would meet Lisa Bearnson and Becky Higgins. And, before I knew it, my dream came true!


I was fortunate in the year 2006 to be named as a Top Ten Scrapbooker of the Year Finalist, held by Creating Keepsake Magazine and guess what… I met my 2 idols, Becky and Lisa! They’re truly amazing people. Ever since, I’ve been lucky to get offered designer jobs with several manufacturers and to get published in magazines. I love making new friends though this hobby all around the globe.  I’m thankful for that!

 


Now on to my family! Our girls, Caitlen and Adelene, were born the day after Christmas 2007.

 

_MG_6947small

Right now they’re my inspiration and my joy. To be perfectly honest, the first year of having twins was the rollercoaster for us, but luckily I’m a WAHM. My flexible work schedule allows me to be there with my girls when they need me the most.

 IMG_0984soft

IMG_5422.text

Joining Prima's Design Team was another highlight of the year 2010.  Prima is well-known for beautiful flowers and to die for crystals, I’m a lucky girl THANK YOU again Prima for giving me a chance to play with your gorgeous products.


Besides scrapbooking, I love making cards and altered projects. I love watching movies, listening to music, making cookies, and traveling.


The first project I’d love to share with you is a cute altered house featuring Jack-n-Jill and Paisley Road paper collections.

    TIP: To create a 12 inch wide photo without a large format printer: Print two 4x6 shots and layout them side by side across the page butting the edges. You will get the 12 inch look for a lot less money!

    Photos Alyssa Photo

    We all know how it goes when you are the main photographer in the family, right? Well, Alyssa McGrew finally got a gorgeous shot of herself and decided to scrapbook it too! By enlarging one of the photos she created a fabulous focal point and added an artsy touch to the page.

    TIP: If you do not print your photos at home you can get the smaller size shown on Alyssa's page by bring your photo to a printer and have them make two photos from a wallet-sized print.

    Liana Suwandi squeezed in tons of photos on this birthday page without overwhelming her sweet design! Liana also pulled out one main photo as her focus...this lends balance and a fun focal point to the layout.

    TIP: Use the index prints you get everytime you go to a printer! Just cut them apart and use them on layouts or a mini-album.
