Prima and Clip It Up!

Hello Friends!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was busy teaching a big card event for my LSS--we had a blast! It was good to see everyone. Can't wait for the fall event..

I have another project to share with you--I was presented with the challenge to alter a Jumbo Clip It Up!-and I said-"Bring It!" It was intimidating at first, I had no idea how I was going to pull it off. I decided to paint it pink and then went from there.

Below-you can see how I displayed some of my Prima goodies including 12 x 12 paper--love that!
And you can also see an original photo of how it looked before painting it just to get an idea of the drastic transformation.




I started by painting my CIU and I used Krylon's Indoor/Outdoor spray paint in watermelon. Cover the silver ring with tape while giving every other surface a good three coats. This paint dries quickly, but leave at least 24 hours after your last coat to start decorating. (use a well-ventilated area for painting.)

Then I began adding Prima goodies-De Vines, Flowers, Pearl Swirls, Leaves and a butterfly. You can add a much or as little as you want. I decorated the base first.
I added more to the top along with some bows. Great place to use leftovers...



Here-I wanted to show you how you can display your projects. The clips are strong enough to hold mini books--how cool is that? I always have trouble properly displaying my projects and this is a great solution!

Now for the really good part---would like the chance to win a Mini Clip It Up??
Here are the details:
For your chance to win the mini CIU (and give-away details) simply head over to Simply Renee's blog and leave a comment. How easy is that? Good Luck!!
Be back soon!
