French Sands Mixed Media Album

Good Morning Friends! Summer feels like its around the corner! This weekend is going to be a hot one here is Los Angeles! Time to head to the beach! My new St. Tropez Collection is really calling my name right now! I am living for all the blues, yellows and creams. I made this beautiful album using the collection, and I am swooning.

Let's talk about the beautiful patina charms in the collection! SO pretty! Yes they come like that! I took some of my Vintage Apothecary Vials and made them look sea washed with my Artisan Powders and a bit of Patina Paste. Loving all the beautiful flowers from this collection as well, they all just mesh together so well.

I will be sharing some more projects with this stunning collection in the next few days stay tuned!

April Mini Album Parcel: Blue Springs

Good Morning Friends! 

I am loving the weather outside right now, not too hot, not too cold, just right! A great time to go into your craft room and craft away, go outside and take some photos! Roadtrips and vacations anyone? As some of you know I recently wrapped up my Frank Garcia Cruise, and it was a blast, I took some pretty photos, and combined some of my other photos that were waiting for a home into this beautiful album that I made for my April Parcel. I used the gorgeous Crate Paper Oasis line, which I love because it works for any Spring/Summer theme. It's just an amazing and versatile line, mix in Prima flowers and it's perfection. Take a look:

The colors are so sweet! Love all the elements! This Parcel will be shipping to members this week! I can't wait. Are you a member? If not, be sure to check in May 1st at 9:00 AM PST to subscribe to the fun!

Frank Garcia Cruise: A Recap!

Good Morning Friends! It is April and I cannot believe how fast time is going this year. I just wrapped up my Frank Garcia 2017 cruise and I am so thankful, humbled and appreciative of all of my dear friends that joined me on this adventure. It was truly an amazing event, on a cruise in the middle of the ocean with great friends! Best of all, crafting our hearts away! I wanted to share some great moments on the cruise! We had some great times, laughs and even some very emotional and personal moments, and I will cherish it all forever. Warning, this is a lengthy post. 

Our adventure begins on the Norwegian Jewel, quite a marvel of a ship, our destination: The Mexican Riviera, Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo! We setup registration night and fun meet and greet on the first night, with everyone picking up a brand new Frank Garcia Apron and name badges. It was great seeing all my friends, people I haven't seen in a while, and those who are always with me!

We then all proceeded to have our group dinner! We had group dinners every night together, the food was delectable and the company was amazing!

We setup a super cute backdrop for photos! Let's say it was a fun and awesome time!

We then went ahead and setup the classroom full of goodies, amazing gifts from all of our sponsors and some pretty glitzy Frank Garcia Bags.

We went ahead and started on Class 1, our Discoveries Mixed Media panel. Lots of inky fingers, techniques and fun times!

It was a fantastic class! The next day we had our Cosmic Love & Lights Mini Album Class! An album larger than life! We spent the whole day decorating and creating!

Laces, glitter, trinkets oh my!

Of course we had some great make and takes during the week, some shore excursions and much more. On the last day, we did some grand prizes, giveaways some amazing group photos!

June one of our MINC Grand Prize Winners!

I can't tell you how GRATEFUL I am to have friends from all over the world. I feel blessed in so many ways and thankful to have had all of you join me on this adventure. Special thanks to Janel, Steff and Johny for helping me put it all together. We are already planning our next cruise in 2018, and we hope you can join us!

Thank You

This album was really fun to make, love the colors, theme, and all of the elements really came together really nicely. It also is a very empowering and simply amazing album that I think I will use to document my favorite times of the year, about myself! After all the album is called Shine Bright. We all have a chance to shine!

November Mini Album Parcel Club: Gather

Good Morning Everyone! 

Happy Tuesday! I have been running around like crazy trying to get some of my classes all wrapped up and ready for next week. I am heading to Wisconsin this week and to Iowa the following week. I am so excited and it's always lovely visiting my friends over on the other side of the country. I wanted to stop by today and share the November Parcel Club Album: Gather. It truly is a work of heart. I love this album so much, and yes it's quite different than my other albums, but I will chat about this more below, first take a look at the album in its full glory...

IMG_3083.jpg
IMG_3087.jpg

So, let's talk about this beauty. I had a lot of emotions while creating, something that usually doesn't happen very often. I always create with my heart, but this time it felt different. I was creating with product foreign to me, I am after all a Prima boy, but I have to admit creating with something new and different was exhilarating. As a designer it's always amazing and refreshing to create with new products and different things. Even if it takes you out of your comfort zone and makes you push your creative limits. I think that is what makes us evolve, learn and grow. This album made my heart full, and I couldn't have wished it to be any other way. I even went as far as putting photos in it right away, something I don't do until the occasion rises. I invite you to try something new, go into uncharted territories, and even challenge your own comfort zone. You might learn a thing or two and even enjoy the process! For me it was amazingly fun.

P.S: The November Album, Gather is now available for registration through the Frank Garcia Mini Album Parcel Club, Registrations are limited, click on the link Mini Album Parcel Club to register.

Thanks for stopping by.

NEW! Frank Garcia Planner

What an exciting time it is at Prima. I am so excited to share my latest product with Prima. I designed a planner! Yes, I have fallen into the charm of having a super cute planner. Of course I had to give my planner a Frank Garcia touch! I love the champagne gold color and the rose gold touches throughout, elegant and beautiful yet very functional, my planner allows for organization, planning, but not only your weekly planning, setting up goals for your love life, personal life, work and more, even meal planning. Take a look at some peeks: 

I fall in love with it each day a little more! I can't wait for you to hold it in your hands and start planning away! More details to come.

Meadow Oak September's Parcel

Hello Everyone! Happy September! I can't believe Fall is almost here! (at least in the states), it's truly the most exciting and my favorite time of the year. Even though we haven't had much of a Fall season, its always nice to think of falling leaves, sweater weather and pumpkin yumminess everywhere, (pumpkin spice latte anyone?). I wanted to show you the September Parcel for the Frank Garcia Mini Album Parcel Club. One of my favorite parcels so far, I used my new Remnant Dome and I have to tell you I love the results. I used a lot of organic items on this book, some wheat, moss, even some natural sprays. Love the way it turned out, take a look.

Lovely isn't it? I can't wait for the club members to receive their parcels! Lots of beautiful stuff in this month's box. I simply love the laces and trims included. If you haven't had a chance to join the club, be sure to be added to the wait list! I have been so lucky and blessed to have some amazing club members and our group keeps growing and growing!

Thanks for stopping by!
