Prima Extravaganza..My Clear Album

I had the privilege of attending a workshop from Prima at CHA. I have always been a fan of Prima flowers so when I heard Prima had a workshop I said sign me up. I was lucky enough to participate in a Build-A-Book Clear Album class that featured the Prima Urban Cosmos Line. We also got to play with Ranger stickles and liquid pearls as well as sakura pens. Trisha and Michelle (Fire and Ice Designs) taught the class. Check out the link to see the album they shared with us...I diverged a bit *lol*
If you haven't heard of the Build-A-Book clear album you are in for a treat. Essentially you can build the book any way you like it as each piece integrates in the album...meaning you can add any size or shape to your album. These albums are offered in 6x6 or 6x12!

Check out the album sneak peak from the Prima Blog. This was at the Prima booth at CHA.

This is my album (not finished...I have more ribbon and pages to add)

Look at that cute polka dot tape...the pink polka dots...The flower was cut out from the PP.

Did you notice those liquid pearls???

I added some stickles to the flower to make it shimmer.

This is a chipboard insert.

Gotta love bling!

Did you see that cute tab? Here is a close up.

Isn't that perfect for Journaling?

I coloured on top of the clear album using a sakura pen, liquid pearls and stickles. You need to make sure you set it aside to dry. Our class was a 2 hour class and this was one of our first assignments...

Have a super weekend.
