Prima Transparency Scrapbooking Page

by Sharon Jeffs

Prima Transparency Scrapbooking Page



  • Beginning with the Prima transparency, trim ¼ inch off of the four edges. Turnover, you will be working on the back side of the transparency.
    Using the pearl Paint Dauber, daub repeatedly over the entire surface of the transparency to coat it with paint. Use the Cranberry Dauber to daub over the edges.
    Put aside to dry thoroughly.

  • With the Pink Coredinations paper, trim ¼ inch from the left and a ¼ inch from the bottom. Using a pair of scissors, scruff up the edges of the card and layer the acetate face up over the pink side of the cardstock. You could use a paper distresser but I find the scissors roughs up the edge with a more random effect.

  • Attach card/acetate to the centre of the Bazzill Swiss Dots paper.

  • Using the copic markers, colour the flourish sections of the acetate around the frame and left edge.

  • Stamp the long border from the Whimsical Frames set onto the green side of the green coredinations card using the Aged Mahogany pad. Stamp the Moment tag from the Doodled Tag stamps onto the green coredinations paper as well.

  • Cut each element out lightly sand the edges to distress.

  • Open a new Publisher document on your computer and type in your title using the Word Art feature. Make sure that whatever font you use is set to no higher than 3 inches. (I used a free font called AlexBrush which can be found here http://fonts-free.net/fonts-chu-vni.htm).

  • Flip your font horizontally so that the title is back to front.

  • Print your title onto the remaining piece of light green coredinations card, printing onto the green side.

  • Cut out your title using a sharp blade or a fine point pair of scissors. Don’t worry about staying exactly on the lines as you will be turning it over so they won’t be seen.

  • Turn your title over so it is facing the right way (black side up) and gently sand over the letters to reveal some of the green underside.

  • Attach your photo with the ¼ inch tape along three edges to create a pocket.

  • Peel off the sticky backing from the Felt stem and adhere to the bottom left side of the page.

  • Adhere the Whimsical frame to the right side of the felt stem.

  • Attach two of the Prima roses to the stem, I chose to add one to the top of the stem and the other to the right side of the stem. Adhere the title to your page, ensuring the first letter begins within the Whimsical frame.

  • Cut a small scrap of green coredinations card to fit within the centre of one of the ornate plates. Attach the plate to your page using the brads supplied with the plates.

  • Punch a hole in the top section of the stamped moment tag and tie a length of ric rac to the hole.

  • Add your journaling to your tag before tucking it behind your photo in the pocket you created earlier. Finally, write the date on the card within the ornate frame.
