Teaching in Canada!

Hello Friends!
It has been a while since I have posted but life has been so busy! Wedding, college visits, travel, work, baseball and more. We have had an amazing summer!

But-I really needed to start posting again and with that-I have news of where I will be teaching this fall.

I have been invited to teach at Scrappin Great Deals in Komoka, Ontario! This is my first time visiting this store and I can't wait to meet everyone there. They have been amazing to work with! I will have big prizes, extra goodies and new art mediums to share! Here are the four classes I will be teaching:



Coffee Break Card Workshop; September 19th at 6:30pm


We will be creating 6 cards in this class using the brand NEW Coffee Break collection with punches, wire threads, trim and gorgeous flowers too. 
Class fee is CA $50.00
(class is almost full)

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


Family Layout Workshop, September 20th at 9:30am


This has to be one of my favorite classes to date! On this layout-it's all about the layers! We will add texture and dimension through the process of creating this layout AND another! So this class includes two gorgeous layouts with a kit packed full of Prima of course!
Class fee: CA $50.00

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


Christmas Card Workshop, September 20th at 1:30pm


In this class, we will create 6 cards filled with holiday cheer! We will be using die cuts, punches, ribbon, flowers and canvas to name a few.
Class Fee: CA $50.00

Art Canvas Workshop, September 20th at 6:30pm


I am in love with this project! For this class-I am allowing the students to customize it with options for warm or cool colors, custom colored flowers, a range of stenciling options and fun added touches. Plus-you can add a photo instead! We will be using a lot of the new Art Basics and Art Ingredients from the Finnabair collection by Prima. 
Class Fee: CA $60.00

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

Please join us for a weekend of fun and creativity. And I did hear that the store will sell the kits if you can not attend. I provide all of the instructions with the kits.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend! xoxo Cari

For all of you Julie Nutting fans....

Hey Friends!
I am headed to Brazil in a couple days and I am looking forward to the nice warm weather, seeing good friends and a Prima filled week with classes, demos, etc...it will be so fun!

Today, I wanted to share a really fun book I created for CHA, using the Julie Nutting chipboard house book with dolls, flowers and all kinds of pretty things! This book was a labor of love-cutting out all of the girls, choosing just the right colors and making it wonderful!


I used Prima's Free Spirit collection throughout the book. I love the bright colorful images in this line and it worked perfectly with the doll stamp images.


I mixed and matched an assortment of flowers throughout the pages-it was so fun to put them together!
I stamped and cut out the card sized dolls to add to the flower clusters-they look so cute!



The ATC pads made adding the backdrops for photos so easy! I just popped them up with foam squares and distressed the edges for a shabby look...


Don't you just love the girls mixed in with the flowers? All of the hard work cutting out the small images was well worth it!





The binding rings in the book make it so easy to work on pages and then add them in as you go...





I hope you like this project and it inspires you to create something beautiful! I will be back with more fun projects when I return from my trip! Have a great day!
xoxo Cari

Art Venture Canada!

Hey Friends!
Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. I have been a busy girl, creating projects for upcoming events in April and I wanted to share a couple of my projects I am teaching in Cornwall Ontario, for Art Venture Canada, 2014.

I have two layout classes that weekend, April 11th-13th. I will be using never before seen Prima collections, that will be released in April. They are really stunning collections and I was so excited to create with them...I know the attendees are going to have fun with them too...






These layout were created with the new Time Traveler collection-so many vintage elements in this line that really make it so diverse. I used current photos of my brother Matt and his finance Dawn. But you could also use it for heritage, anniversary or for travel of course...









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


For the second class-we will create with the new Seashore collection. It has earthy color tones with vintage images from the sea. It also has generic papers that can be used for masculine or heritage themes too.

I am showing the layout within the frame, because the 12 x 12 wood frame is included in the kit for this class. Perfect for displaying in your home. You can use the frame to showcase any layout--switch it out when you have a new masterpiece to display....








I have so many cool techniques to share in both classes using the new Color Bloom sprays Prima just released. These sprays will be shipping in April too. But the attendees will be the first to "play" with these new art mediums on their projects, along with other goodies!

If you are interested in attending this amazing event, check out all of the details here: Art Venture Canada-Registration and Info

It's only about a 3 1/2 hour drive for me from Central New York....such an easy route too!
Feel free to email me with any questions: cari@primamarketinginc.com

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
Cari :)
