My name is Florence Teixeira, aka Floliescrap. I'm living in France with my husband and our two children, Ruben and Emy. I have been scrapbooking since 2007. Scrapbooking has turned into one of my biggest passions my life. I enjoy creating layouts, boxes, and 3D projects.
My daughter is very often seen on my projects because my style is more feminine but I also love talking about my son. I like to design my ideas and then create what I had imagined at the beginning...especially for 3D projects. I generally spend much time on each creation, especially if it presents a picture to express my feelings better. Adding details and volume to my papercrafts is my favorite part. Embellishments are very important to me, and more particularly flowers, stitches, and cuts.
"What a beautiful palette! The colors are so sweet! I love these flowers and leaves ! Like in this palette, I decided to make a tender and sweet birth mini-album for a little girl. I accumulated SEVERAL embellishments as I like to do to give volume to my album. Prima's flowers and embellishments are just perfect for this kind of creation! PERFECT!" ~ Flo

Fran's work is always stunning and this month's project is no different. Just take a peek at all of her fabulous techniques!
"I've added a touch of grunge to this pretty palette by mixing gesso and Color Blooms over my card base. Also a fun little tip; you can create this really fun effect with the flowers from the Sunset range by giving them a gentle blast with a heat gun. It gives a really interesting and different way to use the flowers." ~Fran Westmoreland

A love-filled design, this new sketch by Keren Tamir will get your heart pounding!

There are so many wonderful prompts on this sketch that we are sure you will LOVE creating with it!
Here are a few ideas to get you going!
"This layout is so cool and just fun to play with! It leaves room for the photo and invites added paint and linear effects. So I chose the picture of this cake that I created (and I wanted to remember.) I love to cook and spend "cocooning time" at home. It only remained for me to use soft and brown colors to coordinate everything. I love these colors and Prima provides so many beautiful products in these tones!" ~Flo
