I love this latest kit. I said to Frank when I first saw it, "Gosh, this kit is so going to suit us "'downunder' scrapbookers". It's so pretty. So "Prima".
When you see it, you'll know what I mean.....
So I've made two projects with it so far. One has step by step instructions and can be found on the facebook page I've set up to share all SD projects and be inspired by others. Just search: "Prima Special Delivery Kits - a place to share ideas" on facebook.
This is what it looks like:
As a note.... the idea to use the LP was originally floated when I was talking to a friend Wendy a few years ago. We were talking about different ideas of things we could make into layouts/OTP stuff. Then when we came to the LP idea, I said, oh man! That is gold. Do you mind if I do it as a class one day. It became my goal to do that, but as I haven't, this seemed like the perfect time.
The LP is one I brought in Vancouver. I arrived there at something like 3.30am after a long day of waiting and then driving and catching a ferry from Vancouver island. Due to the fog, out of Vancouver island I missed my flight and had to wait hours before deciding to drive and do the ferry idea. Then when I finally got to Vancouver I was waitlisted for my next flight. It was my birthday. I was feeling down, but I went into Vancouver to have a look around and enjoy my day. I found the most fabulous shop where I brought this LP. Thus the foggy photo on the front cover.
The other project I created with this months kit also has a bit of a story to it. Instead of telling it here. Let me show you the inside cover......
Inside are the postcards I sent home to the family each day. It was funny because even though I was away for over two weeks, there were still cards arriving when I got home. Each card was chosen for it's 'message' ie when I went to Universal Studios, I got a postcard from there. etc etc. It's almost like a diary.
I wanted a simple cover that still looks pretty, so I fussy cut some flowers and the banner off some of the papers in the kit, then did the same with the second piece of paper that comes in the kit and layered them slightly off centre from each other.
I also used some dies to create the centre 'cluster' of items and title area.
To bind it, I used the Zutter Bind it All. (LOVE that machine)! And for the covers I used a piece of cardboard given to me by Daniel from his latest Lego packaging.
He looked at the cardboard when it came out, and I could see his brain ticking over, then he said, Mum do you use cardboard in your scrapbooking? I replied: Yes. He then said, ok. Here you go. You can use this in your scrapbooking Mum. It was pretty precious and I knew no matter what I HAD to use that bit of cardboard somehow, somewhere.
Sooooo, please do join us on our facebook page. Get inspired by what people are up to using their kits, what step by step instructions are available to you from Prima and get involved in the fun!
If you want to buy a kit, just take a look at the "Shop" menu bar on the Live with Prima website.
I'm afraid I've done 'our' order for this kit, but if you are a Kiwi/Aussie and want to get them cheaper than being sent individually, keep an eye here or my facebook page for details of each kit each month (usually around the 15/16th). I put in group orders to keep the shipping down.
Have a lovely day!
