December Mini Album Parcel Club: Shine Bright

I have to admit this time of year is my favorite, but why does it have to end so soon!! I wanted to share the December Mini Album for my Parcel Club: Shine Bright. 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.

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!

Memory Hardware Summer 2016

Hello Everyone! 

What an exciting time of year when we get new goodies to play with! I am so excited to share my new Memory Hardware Release for Summer. Memory Hardware is truly a special line for me because I truly love making albums. It's a great way to not only express yourself but also to create something beautiful and meaningful. So, here is some of the pieces of my new line, this post is a little photo heavy!

First up is my Artisan Powder, 4 new colors! These powders are very versatile and perfect for antiquing any surface, porous and non porous. You can mix them with water, gels, gessoes and more.

991661.jpg

New Artisan Brushes, these fantastic brushes make applying your powders easier and less messy. Made from high quality natural hairs, these brushes can cover large areas or detailed areas too.

New Knobs and Handles, perfect additions for your album covers. Easy to attach and so nice and decorative. 

You asked for it, and now they are here! Pearls II! Perfect for those shabby chic projects. I love the shades of pale pink, white and champagne. 

This one I am excited about, new Remnant Domes. These high quality acrylic domes are perfect for adding anything you want inside and creating a shaker, especially for album covers. Inside, Remnant Fragments, pearls, sequins and more little pieces to add in. 

The Remnant Dome Die cuts the opening for your paper perfectly. Use it for your album covers to cut out the perfect opening for your dome. 

991647.jpg

2 new albums of course. Magnetic Dossier, featuring a magnetic closure and waterfall interior. Large Gatefold, a much larger 8x8 gatefold album, more room for more photos, embellies and more! 

PHEW! That seems like a ton! Here is one of my new classes I will be teaching with these new goodies coming soon Théâtre de la Ville Mixed Media Album.

I am in love with this album, its truly beautiful. I used the new Rossibell Collection from Prima and of course a selection of my new Memory Hardware pieces.

hanks everyone for stopping by, and I can't wait to share more with you!

St. Tropez Mixed Media Album

Hello Everyone! I hope everyone is having a wonderful week. I am only 2 days from leaving to Florida for some classes on a ship (exciting huh?) and I just wanted to stop by and share my St. Tropez Album, one that I taught in Reno this last week. I have to say this album is massive, and probably weighs like 40 pounds. Yes it's quite heavy and no, I am not exaggerating. I think it turned out amazing, it is of course with my French Riviera Collection, take a look:

The shells on the album were made using my new Artisan Powder, which I am very excited about. It's an all purpose dry powder with no shimmer perfect for antiquing effects. You can use it dry, wet, or in mediums, and it's permanent after drying. Pretty cool huh? The little dots are from the new Metallique Acrylic Paint from Prima.

Thanks for stopping by! I will be posting some pictures soon from my cruise!
