It is raining Prima here!

haha... I couldn't think of a title till I saw YSS blog about raining flowers. Yes... in my previous blog.... I told you about YSS receiving a huge shipment of Prima... more than flowers... we have lace, pebbles... chipboards... everything! I load more into my shopping cart. *wink* Here's 1 I created some weeks back for the Prima DT call "Garden of my lil' secrets".......... I used the long packaging of Prima vines (i have so many of these because i teach using these in my last class)..... nobody wants the packaging, right? So i found a fun way to use them....... Close up: First I fold the long packaging into 3 parts... and I sew them into a pocket and a flap. I embellish the front with Prima, of course... LOL You can open up the flap for journaling/photo. Behind, you can tuck a note or a photo into the pocket... see that cardstock with the rose lace tab!!! The title suits the composition as well as the design. I like my LOs with details and textures........ little touches to add interest and invite the viewer to take a closer look. There are many hidden flaps and pockets... like my lil garden to hide my secrets. One of them being... I hide my new shoes under my bed!!!! hahaha... in case someone in my household is counting my shoes 'population'........... *wink* ... shhhh.. dont tell on me! Hope you like this fun project and LO!!! Use your prima packaging in new ways!

Absolutely adore how you used the packaging here, Wendy! How brilliant to create little pockets with them. Love how each one is embellished with so many great little details. And love that photo of you. Fabulous stuff here, my friend.
