BIG News!

We've had some EXCITING news recently! My son, Billy, recently got engaged so I wanted to create a little journal for him, and his sweetheart, Bethany! (YES, our family seems to be in a continuous wedding-planning mode!)

I started by painting one of Prima's fun journals with white paint, then spritzed a bit of Gold Foil Color Bloom spray on top for a soft, shimmery effect. (I took the journal apart to complete this step.) Once it dried I put it back together, then added layers for the cover with the Enchanted Framelit dies from the Flora Grande set. Set each layer on foam squares for extra dimension on your journal front.

Use the framelits for your photo too. Everything will nestle together perfectly, making the photo the star of the project.

Top your framed photo with beautiful Prima flowers, and a few glistening butterflies cut with the Winged Beauty Thinlet Die and gold vellum! I just adhered the butterflies in the center so they look like they are barely landing on the project!

Thank you, Sizzix & Prima, for letting me play with the new dies! They are absolutely marvelous and so versatile no matter what type of project you want to create with them! (Click here and comment by the 18th for a chance to win a Big Shot and new Dies!)
