Prima Sneak Peek: Lyric

January 14, 2013

Happy Monday, everyone!!  How has your day been so far?  Well, today is birthday #33 for me....and it has been a great day so far!  I've been getting birthday messages all day long (starting at midnight) via text, Facebook, phone calls & email.  My family sent me flowers, and my husband got me some of my favorite tea & new boots!  I got a phone call from some of my favorite people at CHA, and they sang Happy Birthday to me on the show floor.  Ha!  (And then proceeded to ask me to work....on my birthday.  They're lucky I love them.  Tee hee!)  We are going to dinner tonight at my favorite restaurant, The Pearl...and then this weekend we head to Seeley Lake with some friends for a weekend full of wintry fun.  All in all....I would say I am having a pretty amazing day!

Another fun part of my birthday?  I have a card to share using another one of the brand new collections from Prima!  The collection is called "Lyric", and it might be my favorite of this release.  I know I said "Hello Pastel" was....but now I'm just not sure!  Tee hee!  Maybe it's a tie....we'll go with that!  Here is a look at the collection:

Isn't it just to die for?!!  LOVE it!  Prima has a Lyric Blog Post up today, and there are a TON of beautiful projects included on it, plus a giveaway!  So, be sure to check that blog post out too!   Here is the card that I created for it!  (If you happen to be at CHA, you can also check it out there in person!  Oh how I wish I could!!)
1. Make A2 card from black cardstock.
2. Cut woodgrain paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Cut pink paper block, punch a lace border to the bottom and adhere.
4. Cut chandelier block and layer to the top.
5. Cut out a banner from patterned paper and adhere across the seam.
6. Layer the flowers, a cream bow & a wooden button to the left side of the banner.
7. Add a banner sticker & butterfly to the upper right corner.
8. Stamp the sentiment to a conversation bubble sticker, then adhere next to the flowers to finish.

-Totally PaperCrafts #149 - Ribbon
-Our Creative Corner - Shabby Chic Style

So- I knew that this post was going to go live on my birthday, so I kind-of created that card for me.  Tee hee!  Although I will probably end up either submitting it for publication or giving it away to will always originally be created for myself.  I love the sentiment, and the beautiful floral accents.
