"Love These Memories" Layout Featuring NEW Prima's Life Time Collection

Hi everyone, I am excited to share the very first peak of one of Prima's Winter CHA Releases called the "Life Time" Collection! 

It's an amazing gorgeous new line and I'm thrilled to share this project/layout I created called "Love These Memories"! The Life Time collection papers/prints, masks, flowers, stamps, embellishment, metal trinkets...everything.. are all amazing and your going to love it 

Here's a layout I made as a holiday gift! I truly believe that handmade gifts are the most precious thing you can ever give to a loved one :)

Here's some simple steps I used to create a simple layout:

- Gather he beautiful prints from the Life Time collection along with the coordinating embellishments: metal trinkets, FLOWERS (all sizes), wooden buttons/tickets, ribbon, more flowers, etc.
- Gather tools: sharp exacto, scissors, Beacon Adhesive, crop-a-dile, cutting mat, inks, paper trimmer, border punches, etc. 
- Next, GET BUSY! Use the alpha packaging material for the base of the top layer. Fold into pocket using directions on packaging.
- Grab your favorite picture and matte it with a paper that contrasts against the pocket.
- Cut out the tags or other embellishments you want to incorporate to the project. Look for phrases that are meaningful to you.
-  Now your ready to embellish. Your project base is ready for you to start embellishing. add your flowers, trinkets. 
- Tip: Imagine a triangle on your layout. Any shape of triangle. Now at the points of your triangle add clusters of embellishments. Your eye will move to these three points on your layout so make sure the points are where you want your focus to be. Face, title, cluster of pretty embellishments!

Do you like how it looks? Keep going! Add a title, trinkets! Have fun.. play with the design. You can do it. Just glue and do it! 
- And the MOST important thing to remember: There's no right or wrong way to scrap! Enjoy the process, relax and have fun with it! You'll see..

Here's some photo's of the "Life Collection " Binder Book I created. I love how simple and fast this project was to create! Keeping the inside pages simple yet filled with patterned paper enables the recipient lots of fun opportunities to add their own special touch to the book!
