Sisters...Prima BAP

When I saw the March BAP at Prima I said.."Hmmm" I have to try it.  And after thinking for several hours...(lol)... this was my inspiration. I worked with two of my favorites Delight and Divine collections by Prima.  In the photo my sister Karen and me a few years ago, now that I'm living here, oh gosh how much I miss her and the girls.

March sketch

I made the same sketch's design but at my style, draping some areas, giving textures with a Prima stencil and molding paste and painting.

I also added some Prima lace and this metal clock.

Chipboard, wood buttons and stamp by Prima.

Hello everyone!!  Today I'm sharing this page that I made with the Vintage Summer Basics Collection by Maja Design.
She's my dear daughter Paola when she was 8 old month how times flies...   I'm also playing at Scrap Africa in their Stars and Stitching challenge.
I put some stars rub-on on my page, some stamp and added some textures with molding paste, gesso and acrylic paints.

Love these star pins that the colors goes perfect with the background paper and I sew the paper corners in my sewing machine.

March-My Creative Sketch and a step by step Tutorial....

Hi!! I'm showing today my last page created with the gorgeous March Limited Edition kit by My Creative Scrapbook.  I made this page inspired in the new sketch for March at My Creative Sketches designed by Liz Chidester.

March Sketch

The Randow Draw Prize...

I made a step by step tutorial about how I made my page and used the stamp that comes in the kit.
Let's get started...

I selected these materials from the LE kit and the sketch to start working my page.

I stamped several times in an ivory cardstock with the Prima stamp from the kit.

Cut all the stamped frames with a craft knife.

With a mask and homemade molding paste I created a deign similar to the sketch.

You can see here the design and the textures...

I made some fussy cutting from this paper (leaves)

I also cut two birds from this paper...

I glued  two of the frames on my photos.

I placed the photos and frames using the March sketch like inspiration.

I glued all the frames and photos and started to decorate around them with the leaves and the  Prima flowers from the kit.  

To soften the color I applied a lite coat of gesso to all the Prima  flowers.

Then with a paintbrush and a distress ink I applied color around the frames and photos.

And I gave the final details with the chipboard, brads and embellishments from the LE kit...

 I hope this inspire you.... to reserve a kit go HERE

This page is about my brother Juan Carlos and my sister in law Ivelise, I have many pictures of their wedding and these papers are perfect to work with them.  I played with some paints, gesso and molding paste in my background.

I made layers with the die cuts, papers and some frames that I made using the Prima stamp that comes in the kit.

Love this doily stickers from Prima, it also comes in the LE kit.

I cut the leaves from one of the papers.

The tittle is one of the chipboard pieces from the kit.

Here are my lovely nieces Fabiola and Sabrina, they put glasses because they wanted to look like mom, lol!  I scrap-lifted one of my favorite pages "Dream" and used the same design to make this page.
I love the paper with the peach and light blue colors stripes so I worked with these colors ... and the kit flowers  goes perfect!!! 

Lot of chipboard pieces from Prima.
