Hello everyone!
And happy Friday! I have class lined up for tonight on Live with Prima and another project from CHA to share too. And then I hope to get more projects finished for next week. This post is kind of wordy-sorry for that!

Live with Prima on the Road!! This is my Joy Mini Album I am going to create tonight for my class. I am teaching this class for Prima at my local scrapbook store called Stampin & Scrappin Time in Bridgeport NY. It's just 15 minutes outside of Syracuse. I will have a classroom full of attendees and it will be aired "live" at the same time for anyone around the world to tune in and watch from home.

Here is the store from where i will be teaching! It's really quaint and artsy-and everyone there is soooo helpful and friendly!
Their blog:

Class time: 7:00pm EST, 6:00pm CST, 5:00pm GMT, 4:00pm PST

You can watch the class live from here:
or log into and see it here:

Everyone is welcome to join in on the chat! Create a free account on ustream and then log in. Search "prima flowers" and click on the Prima logo to see the class and chat box. You can tune in anytime you want and if you can't make it for the show-we record all of them so you can watch it at your leisure.
I will create this project from start to finish. There will be some clever ideas incorporated into each page and fun techniques too!
This is a mini album made from Prima packaging. Prima has an amazing Go Green Concept program where all of our packaging can be re-used for all kinds of projects. It's like getting free product when you purchase our flowers or embellishments.

If you love this project and would like to purchase a kit for yourself to recreate it-kits are available here:
Brand new CHA Summer 2010 products are in this kit, so you can be one of the first to have these new goodies in your hands! How cool is that?

Here are a couple peeks at the book I will be creating:

And I have another layout to share with you! This layout of Kate is one of my faves to date. She is such a sweetie! I used Prima's brand new Paisley Road paper line from CHA. I mixed in a bunch of goodies such as, chipboard embellishments, Coordinating flowers, page pebbles, pearl swirls and a cute butterfly. This layout has tons of layering added. I cut out flowers and shapes, then attached them with foam tape for the dimension.
All of the paper edges are distressed and I added some dynasty centers here and there to the flower centers.

Here's a close up of some of the details. Paper cut outs mixed in with flowers, pearls and chipboard.

I will be back after the weekend with more news and goodies to share!
And I hope you can make it to my class! I would love to see everyone there!
Have a great weekend everyone!
xoxo CAri
