Who loves stamping? Who has never tried stamping? Raise your hand!

 

You know Prima makes a wide variety of stamps? That's right. We have clear stamps, cling stamps, washi tape wood stamps, doll stamps, & large foam stamps. There's literally something for EVERYONE!

So let's see what our designers have for us today.

Mixed Media Tags

by Educator Janine Koczwara

 

26 feb janine

Janine created these vibrant and fun Mixed Media tags with multiple stamping techniques.  She lay down her base color on her tags using the new Ranger Distress Paints; one directly onto the tag and rubbed in, one marbled on a craft mat (and then dipping the tag into the paint); and one by applying blotches of paint and misting for dripping effects. 

26 feb janine2

Once dry she stamped with various Prima stamps; sometimes with black ink, sometimes using the distress paints for a softer effect.  She used a combination of “rolling” stamping techniques without using a block, as well as the standard way of mounting your stamp on a block first. 

26 feb janine3

The rolling technique allows for a more random stamped image, perfect for mixed media projects.  She finished off her tags with Hello Pastel Flowers and SIIC swirls.

TIP: to "roll" your stamps just pick up the clear stamps in your hand, add ink, and curl the stamp outward slightly so parts of the image make contact with the paper. This will give a fabulous broken edge to your stamped image and eliminate harsh edges.

Stamped Layout

by Designer Anna Dabrowska (Finn)

26 feb anna

Finn layers different stamp images to create a gorgeous grunge look on her projects. If you look carefully you will notice that she always uses themto create focal points around her photos...naturally drawing your eye to the picture and across the project.

26 feb anna2
The stamped images do not have to be clear or bold...just use a soft black ink (Prima Chalk Edger) and use multiple stamps on top of one another to recreate this look.

26 feb anna3
By using just a portion of the stamp in some areas you can add a distressed, grunge look without getting all messy!

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

So let's get started with a few stencil ideas for you!

 

Idea 1. Trace Around The Design

by Designer Leslie Ashe

25 feb leslie

Such a simple, yet fun idea...just trace around the stencil design with a pen...or a colored pencil for a whimsical accent on your page!

 

Tip: Try this when your page is just missing something...or an area seems too bare. If you use pencil make sure you seal the design so it doesn't smudge. Try SpectraFix for NO indoor fumes.

Ideas 2, 3, 4: Use with PanPastels, Inks, and Resin Sand

by Designer Solange Marques

25 feb solange

 

Solange first used stencil 922382 with PanPastels and Distress Ink (blue and green). Next she applied a mix of resin sand and acrylic gesso on the chevron art stencil to get that incredible texture you can almost touch!

Stencils can add so much color, design and texture to any project!

 

Tip: Use multiple stencil with multiple mediums for maximum impact on your projects.

Idea 5. Use with Gesso

by Designer Brit Sviggum

25 feb brit

 

Brit added gesso over the stencil with an old credit card (or hotel room key) for a nice even application. She applied it straight on the Prima paper. After it dried she added her photo and embellies to create a wonderful playful feel.

 

Tip: This stencil is one of those designs that can be used for any theme! Make sure you wash your stencil quickly so the gesso does not dry.

Idea 6. Color with Chalk Edgers
by Designer Felicity Wilson

Felicity also used gesso with her stencil on this layout, but, after it dried, she added chalk edgers on the raised design. What a fabulous way to step it up a notch while adding color!

Tip: tap the chalk edger lightly on the gesso design for best coloring results. The raised design will catch the gorgeous color.

Ideas 7 & 8: Use with Chalk Edgers and Paints

by Educator Jamie Dougherty

25 feb jamie

Use a variety of different paints and mediums to build dimension on your page with stencils. A few different stencil designs, in complimentary colors, can really make a page pop.

Tip: You don't have to use the whole stencil on your page. Just add accents, like Jamie did here, to create a visual triangle.

25 feb jamie2

Tip 2: Pick a bright color that will pop off the page when adding bits and pieces from a stencil!

Idea 9. Use with Fiber Paste

by Designer Felicity Wilson

25 feb felicity

Any kind of paste can be used with our stencils...since they are thick they hold up to any medium and multiple washes. Felicity chose a light fiber paste for her design on this page. The look is not as clean & defined as gesso, since it has fibers in it, but it is great for a boy's page!

 

Tip: Experiment with ANY art medium you have in your scrap supplies! You will be amazed at how many work well with our stencils!

January's BAP & PPP Winners!

Our sketch for January was done by the lovely Felicity Wilson!

 

2013 January
Felicity LOVES lots of white space and, by the amount of entries we received, you seemed to LOVE it too!

 

 

So our January BAP Winner is:

Zaneta Glowa!


Zaneta Glowa

Zaneta's whole page is a masterpiece! We love how she created a book on her page about her love for reading. The paper choices, embellishments, techniques and whole theme were absolutely perfect!

Congrats, Zaneta! Please email us within 7 days to claim your BAP prize! (Add Jan BAP Winner to your subject line please.) sharon@primamarketinginc.com

 

Note: Once again you AMAZED us with your entries. We normally go through the emails and save some of the gorgeous projects to feature on here. Well, this month we realized that we saved 48 projects! There is no way we can post that many without causing upload issues for everyone. So we had to go through them AGAIN to narrow it down further. That was REALLY difficult.

 

Did we mention how wonderful YOU are? Thank you!

Good-Bye, Hello

Good-byes are always hard, aren't they? We have LOVED having Janna Werner on our design team this year. Her style was unique and gorgeous and so fun! We all wish her the very best in her endeavors as she moves on. We will miss you, Janna!

 

So, that leaves a spot on our team, and we are excited to fill it with a lady who is amazingly talented! It's time for a sweet hello to:

 

Louise Nelson

Louise Nelson collage

Introduce yourself in a few sentences.
Hi my name is Louise Nelson but I am also known as loolabelle on line :)
I dont have any children or pets, however I am caretaker for the units where I live, which involves caring for my landladies' cat; who is a very anti-social creature. LOL :)
I currently live in Adelaide, South Australia, where I work full-time as an Operating Room Registered Nurse. I work for an Agency and, as such, go to a different hospital every day. I work shift work [evenings and nights], mostly in the areas of Trauma and Emergency Surgery.

What is your favorite prima product?
The resins, and Donna Downey Stencils,....oh, and leaves. I love leaves. :)
What music/songs do you listen to when you scrapbook?
I currently have a selection on continuous play by the artists; Sade, Jack Johnson, The Gypsy Kings, Adele, Tracy Chapman, and the sound track from The Big Chill.

Favorite food to eat?
At the moment, despite it being the height of summer [LOL]. Soups and Eggs Bennedict, Battered/tempura fish, seafood. and vegetables
If you could go on a dream vacation where would you go?
I would love to do an around the world trip and visit all the major art galleries.
What inspires you the most?
Ooooh, what doesn't inspire me? LOL. I just need to open my eyes and I am overwhelmed with inspiration from the world around me. :)

What is your fave subject to scrapbook?
Everything about my life and my friends; but, in saying that, mostly the 'everyday' moments. I am a huge fan of instagram, so I scrap many of my everyday moments using my instagram photos.
How long have you been scrapbooking?

I have been scrapbooking since may 2005.

 

Now that we know more about Louise let's have a peek at a few of her other projects!

Let's Welcome Guest Designer: Keren Tamir

Guest Designer: Keren Tamir

Location: Canada

 

Keren Tamir cm

Keren caught our eye with her design team submission filled with beautiful, feminine projects! She is an avid particpator in our monthly contests and on our social medias. We love to see what Keren comes with as every single project is a total knock-out!

 

We hope you enjoy getting to know Keren and seeing a bit of her work!

 

 

"My name is Keren Tamir and I'm 38 years old. I am a wife to a wonderful husband who is very supportive of my scrapbooking art, and a mother of two amazing kids; a 11 year old boy and a 6 year old girl. I've been scrapbooking for 10 years and I mainly scrapbook about my family.


My style is a combination of shabby chic softness and mixed media layering. I use lots of flowers and vines in my projects along with lots pastes and mists. My style is always evolving and that’s one of the things I love about this art. I've been experimenting with different mediums and techniques over the past couple of years until I found the perfect style for me and it has been very rewarding.


One of the main reasons I started scrapbooking was to preserve memories and photos for my children. However, now I enjoy another aspect of scrapbooking. I love the artistic outlet and soul fulfillment that it gives me. I love to create and I’m passionate about what I do.


I was so happy when I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for Prima. I love all the Prima products and I use them in almost all my projects. I'm so excited to showcase my work on the Prima blog this month. It is an honor and a pleasure!!


I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoyed creating them!!
May Love fullfill every moment of your life and may your heart be filled with peace and laughter." ~Keren

Simple to Stupendous!

Each month we show you how to scrapbook two amazing layouts- in two very different styles- starting from "Simple", then dressing it up to create something "Stupendous"!

 

This month the fabulous Juliana Montoya has created two beautiful projects using the new Engraver collection.

 

Let's peek at her "Simple" version first:

 

18 feb juliana1

"The Engraver Collection inspired me to create a vintage layout with a touch of Shabby Chic."
18 feb juliana2

"The gorgeous maps and images from the collection makes me think of old books which I love to collect.  This is one of my favorite collections for sure for all of the vintage color tones."
Although this layout is simpler in style it definitely looks complete and ready to add to your scrapbook album.
Of course we could stop right here with the simpler version and be proud of the gorgeous project! But, if you like to embellish more, we want to show you how to take this layout up to the next level!
Now let's see how Juliana made this layout "Stupendous":
18 feb juliana3

"I used a lot of layers to create my layout by using a few pages from the Engraver Collection and added a few Prima flowers."
18 feb juliana4

"I then added a few more Prima flowers, vintage trinkets, and trims to make it a bit more........ Stupendous" :) Juliana 
18 feb juliana5

So more layers, more flowers, more embellishing, all add up to a delightful layout filled beautiful touches!

Stacey Young's Pin:

"I really adore pinterest and I have so many gorgeous, inspirational pins that I almost couldn't pick just one!!!  But, I did, and this one sent my creativity into overdrive with it's gorgeous hues, and the scene up at the top of the ocean.  I found a picture to match and, knowing it was a beachy one, I knew exactly where this layout would take me".

 

Stacey's Pin Spin:

Today, Yesterday, Tomorrow

So many of you ask for step-by-step directions for our projects! Well, today we have a special Valentine's Day tutorial from one of our guest designers! We hope you enjoy her gorgeous layout.

 

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

 

Céline Regnier, one of our fabulous guest designers and readers, created a heart-felt project for a sweet friend of hers! We hope you enjoy this tutorial as much as we have!

8 feb celine

" I created this project using the Prima Almanac collection. I was inspired by the soft salmon pink and other classic colors of these papers. The musical score pattern and keyboard print, along with the many other elements, were perfect for this photo of my husband and son." ~Céline

 

8 feb celine2

Prima's antique keys are wonderfully displayed on this layout. We love how Céline layered them with our wood banners!

8 feb celine3

Céline's layering of puffy paint and papers is so soft and sweet!

 

Step-by-Step Tutorial:

  1. Ink and distress Pixie paper for your base sheet. Cut three rectangles as follows:
    Candelas 6” x 8”, Espirit  5 ½ “ x 6 ½ “ and Meeting a Fairy 3” x 4”. Ink and distress all edges. Adhere these to the base starting with the Candelas which is 2 ½ “ in from the top and left hand side of the base. Add the other rectangles as shown and using a sewing machine, stitch around the edges of each piece.

  2. Die-cut a doily shaped circle from Espirit paper and stitch the edges. Cut a journaling card in half width wise and ink the edges. Hand cut the fairy and black and white roses from Primrose paper.

  3. Cut the following strips: Candelas 10” x 1  ½ “, Espirit 8” x 1”. Cut a notch in each end of the strips, then ink and distress the edges. Adhere these layers and then your photo as shown. Adhere the cut out fairy using 3d foam dots.

  4. Mold the vine around the curve of the circle doily then add extra flowers and leaves in and around the vine and photo.

  5. Stamp butterflies and birds onto patterned paper, cut these out and add to your page as embellishments.

  6. Incorporate one of the metal trinket words to create a title. Paint the resin window frame with permanent marker and adhere.
