Prima Educator Days coming to Indiana . . .

Prima Marketing Educator Days are being celebrated during  National Scrapbook Weekend. As a Prima Marketing Educator, I'm pleased to be teaching in Indiana where we'll be immersed in beautiful Prima products.

Cardmakers Organizer

I'll be teaching this Cardmakers Organizer at Mary's ScrapDen in Evansville Indiana. We'll put it together and then decorate it with Frank Garcia's Wild & Free collection including flowers and Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts trims.

Then hop on over to Jasper where I'll be teaching at The Doodlebug Inc in Jasper Indiana.

PED Doodlebug 1

The morning class will find us working on a Gypsy Soul Laser Cut products and decorated with Prima Marketing's Wild & Free. It's a book box with a hidden drawer! We'll work with new Prima products including paints and waxes. Top off this project with a beautiful Prima resin frame.

We continue the afternoon at The Doodlebug with the second class featuring a built-from-scratch mini-book. When complete, this mini fits inside the hidden drawer book box.
