Can you believe that it is MAY already? Where has the year gone? In parts of the world springtime is here, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and everyone is itching to get done with school! Why not celebrate the changes with a few of our challenges? It's a GREAT way to get those photos and memories documented, or create a new home decor piece. Just wait until you see the BAP and PPP this month!
Isn't this color palette a beauty? Trendy is one word that perfectly describes it, while beautiful is another! With hints of soft neutrals, splashes of pink and coral, that luscious mint, and a touch of summer yellow...this palette is simply a delight to work with. Why not join in the color fun and create ANY Prima-based project for our challenge? We have a few samples to inspire you, followed by the entry link!
Our first sample using the PPP is by a gorgeous and very talented gal, Stephanie Schütze...who also happens to be our Guest Designer for May!

"What a wonderful Prima Product Pick this month. I’m in love with these colors. I created my layout with a self-made background on which I used different paints and stamps. I built up my page at the bottom with beautiful ATC’s from the Free Spirit Collection and Prima Flowers. The colors gave me a lot of inspirations to create this page." ~Stephanie Schütze

We're also loving those torn edges, which add a fun blast from the past, but used in a new way. Play with the elements that work with YOUR photos/ideas and go from there. You have all month to submit your entry! Here are a few lovely samples to get your creativity going!
The sketch is a fabulous incentive to give my special photo a great frame. I used papers from the April Special Delivery Kit-some beautiful papers from the Free Spirit Collection. These are so perfect for spring feelings. This layout is about the first warm days this year in which my girls jumped to the water sprinklers. ~Stephanie Schütze

Hera Sugitani's layout is so dramatic and beautiful! What a lovely mix of Timeless Memories papers and flowers used to create such a bold, "timeless" look! Did you catch the brilliant use of lace tucked up under the torn paper edges? Just amazing all around, Hera!
I was so inspired by the torn edges in the sketch. So inspired that I actually tore some more in the opposite corner. LOL. ~Camilla Ekman
