Prima Pretty Pale 

Pretty Pale is a beautiful vintage style 
paper collection with a touch of 
gorgeous floral elements. Perfect for all 
types of paper crafts. I created a card 
using lots of die cuts for layering. I added 
some pretty moulded embellishments 
painted with art alchemy Vintage Rose
 and Soft Satin metallique paints and 
then dry brushed with white gesso. 
I tucked some crinkle ribbon and string 
underneath the beautiful Prima flowers. 
I then added some touches of paper 
texture paste randomly on the card 
and flowers, I finished it off by adding
 mini art stones and vintage retro melange

Prima Spring Farmhouse 
Altered Milk Can 
The Country Gentleman 

Spring Farmhouse by Frank is a real
 beauty and my altered Milk Can is 
perfect for this collection. I used a
 Lindt chocolate tin that I covered with 
some cloth and wool string using Finnabair's
 sculpture medium and some fabulous
 rust pastes (I mixed and matched 
3 of the sets). Those pastes are
 awesome and give you that real rust 
effect and I achieved exactly the 
look I wanted on my project. I added 
those cute little wood shutters and
 one of the elements from the 12x12 sheets
Decorated with some metal chain, 
beautiful ephemera and stunning flowers.

Prima Midnight Garden 

I love everything about the Midnight Garden 
collection, a little on the darker side with
 breathtaking patterns and gorgeous colours.
 I have created this cute little Gazebo with my 
Silhouette (design ID 60453 and assembly
 instructions: Fold at dashed cut lines, glue tabs 
inside adjacent edges. Assemble two halves 
of gazebo separately, then join the two halves 
together, leaving the cupola for last. Glue the 
cupola tabs down, reaching in through the 
gazebo's open base. Lastly, glue hexagon 
base inside gazebo, bending in bottom tabs 
and gluing them to hexagon for support-by 
Jennifer Wambach). Decorated with pretty little 
bows, metal chain, butterflies, fussy cut 
leaves and gorgeous flowers.

Graphic 45 
Hot Air Balloon 
'Spread your wings and Soar!' 

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a Hot Air Balloon featuring the
 beautiful Imagine Collection! I had this 
project idea in mind a while now and I am very 
pleased with the outcome. The colours and 
patterns in this collection are really pretty 
and the I think these gorgeous papers
 and my project go hand in hand.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies:
Various other dies
Martha Stewart Punches
Metal Chain
Brown Cardstock
Flat Back Pearls
Brads and Eyelets
Red Double Sided Tape
Soft Gloss Gel

I used my Silhouette for this project... 
Hot Air Balloon by Nilmara Quintela 
Design ID 193648
Assembly Instructions:

Cut a Hot Air Balloon from brown cardstock
 and the12x12 pattern sheets and assemble 
accordingly. Add washi tape to the balloon 
and bottom piece.
Tip : Use red double side tape to adhere the
 balloon. This makes assembly easy and will 
prevent it from falling apart. 

Cut a few bows and assemble.
Tip : Curl the two bow strips forming a curve 
using the back of pencil or similar object. 
This makes folding the end pieces
 together a little easier. 
Fasten with a brad.

Fussy cut a few elements from the 8x8 
pad and mat onto brown cardstock leaving a
 small border. Add eyelets to each.

Cut a few die cut shapes and fussy cut 
some butterfly elements.

Cut two borders from the pattern sheets 
and punch the edge on one side with a border punch.

Cut a few paper rosettes from the pattern sheets.

Add the metal keys to the rosettes and 
metal brads to the centre of the 2 big butterflies.
Tip : Adhere the metal pieces with soft
 gloss gel ensuring they stay in place.

Add the metal chain to the bows.
