Prima Marketing DT Call

Hi again all. Well it is that time of year again when one of my favourite companies has their Design Team Call, and this year I thought 'Why Not'! So my emails been sent away, and as part of the entry they wanted to know some of the areas that entrants were most comfortable working in. There were 6 categories to chose from:

1: Clean and Simple
2: Layouts and Pocket Pages
3: Altered Projects, Home D├ęcor and DIY Projects.
4: Cards and Tags
5: Videos
6: Mixed Media

And if you have been following me at all either here on my blog, here on my Facebook account or on Pinterest, then you would be aware that I have undertaken many of these styles before. That is all with the exception of videos, but I do plan on rectifying that situation before the end of the year. Some examples of previous projects are:

But Prima Marketing wanted to see what you could do with their products, so a new challenge was set. I gathered some supplies and came up with some new items trying to showcase some of my skills. I was able to use the Love Tag that I created earlier in the month and adorned this on top of a slider box. This box was my own design and measurements, and was made specifically to house a box of Roses chocolates. I thought this would be ideal for Mother's Day that is coming up in 2 weeks time. (Mum if you are reading this it is for Nan not you! LOL). So do you think she will like it? I have left the slider tag blank for the moment as I contemplate what to write on it. I'm thinking that I might get my children to write their Granna a special message on it, as they share such a close relationship.

Next up, (once again my own design and measurements), is a Princess Castle Waterfall Folio for my daughter who is 3. Prima's Princess Collection was just perfect for this. This isn't exactly how I had envisioned it looking (unfortunately it is that time of year when I am required to get my flu shot, and afterwards I spend about a week in bed trying to recover from it, but if I didn't have it then no doubt I'd get the flu!), but in the interest of meeting the deadline I had to make some very last minute changes. It's not quite as decorated as I would have liked, but there is always the opportunity to add to it later. Now the difficult task is to try and pick which of my daughter's favourite photos to display within the waterfall section. No doubt she will want to have some input on this. LOL!

My third creation is a set of simple 6 inch cards using the Butterfly Collection. These were very quick and simple to make up, and I love the way that they match, but are still unique. The insides have also been decorated, but have got space to provide a statement/ sentiment at a later date.


So I would love to hear what you guys all think. It would be a completely surreal experience to become a part of the Prima Marketing team, to be able to play and experiment with all of their delicious goodies and to be able to promote the company. Good Luck to all of you that have decided to give it a shot this year.
