500th Post Giveaway & Pink Paislee

YAY!  The big day has finally arrived...
is happening today!  First let me share my latest project from
This week at Pink Paislee we've teamed up the Color Wash Collection with fun finds
 from Prima Marketing. After sifting through all of the fabulous products, I narrowed down my selection to include the versatile Prima Mixed Media Album and Covers, along with tons of neat embellishments. 

For the cover I tried a couple of different techniques on each side; one side being designed with
 a resist pattern and the other side plain canvas. First, I spritzed the bottom third with 
Heidi Swapp’s Colorshine Citron followed by Seafoam and Blush. Next, I laid the
 Mini Flora 6X6 Stencil over the top and spritzed with Navy Colorshine.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum by first adding a Color Wash Watercolor Tag that was backed 
with a smaller piece of patterned paper and then spritzed lightly with Colorshine Blush and Citron.
 For the Prima Resin Butterflies, I added Navy Colorshine and then dabbed off the excess.
 The Wood Embellishment Leaves were colored with Citron Colorshine

The Prima Mixed Media Album works in perfect concert with the Color Shine Collection
It was easy to mix the base pages with all of the patterns of paper. Also included in the album 
set are cute cut-out pieces and cardstock stickers that you will see sprinkled throughout this book. 

This was the first chance that I’ve had to try out the Color Wash Clear Stamps and I love them!
 I stamped the background design onto one of the watercolor papers (from the Prima album) with blush
 and seafoam ink pads. I wanted a really crisp sentiment, so it was stamped with a black Staz On ink. 

There were so many amazing pieces to choose from in the Resist Canvas Sticker Collection
I had a hard time deciding what to use! I found that the resist areas show up better if you add several applications of Colorshine spray. There are four tiny pockets, as well as two larger pockets included
 in the clear page. I cut small strips of paper from the 6X6 Color Wash Paper Pad and then inserted
 them into the pockets. The Color Wash chipboard letters are a perfect addition to the exterior
 of the tiny pockets…just the right size and boy do they stick! 

Spritz, spritz, spritz…whether it’s on resist canvas, resin or wooden embellishments, the Colorshine
 sprays work their magic on just about any surface imaginable. And again, I chose to highlight the four-pocket-areas with chipboard letters backed with beautiful Color Wash patterns. 

I adore the layered Pink Paislee's Cluster Frames!
 I added it here with a little foam to the back, except for the top so that a photo can slide in. 

The final page was simply dressed in a beautiful ombre chipboard word and citron colored butterfly.
 And I mentioned earlier that I experimented with the canvas covers by using different stencils and 
spritzing effects. I like the fact that no matter how I colored the canvas, each side turned out
 unique and fun…you can’t go wrong! 

That's all for my mixed media mini let's get to the 
 The kit includes all NEW product: Bella Blvd (Kiss Me Collection including
double-sided papers and two sticker sheets), 2 Rolls Designer Tape and Cling Stamps;

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
