Happy Monday! We’re showing off two beautiful collections, Havana and Santorini, today! Yes, they are sun-filled, gorgeous lines that are so versatile you can use them for almost any theme or project type! Come see!
Tanya combined both lines to create these adorable pillow gift boxes! She created one for each line + we have FULL instructions!
Step by Step Instructions:
1. Cut two pillow box shapes from the collection sheets using the pillow box cutting die. Adhere the tabs with sticky red double sided tape and assemble accordingly.
2. Cut a few die cut shapes using Prima dies and other various dies for the decoration cluster to be added to the box. Adhere the cluster with foam adhesive squares to give it some dimension.
3. Add a starfish embellishment to the decoration cluster on the box to give it that extra beach feel.
4. Select a few pretty Prima flowers to add to your box.
5. Add some beautiful decorative tape on the one side of the box.
6. To finish off the project add some say it in crystals.

“Hello, Everyone! I love the Havana collection for it`s soft, pastel colors. It gives opportunity to create something summery and light. I made a tag with my photo where I am painting. To support this theme I added two old paint brushes and tube with paints. In the journaling cards for this collection there are so many different and interesting quotse! I pick up one and added it to my project. My photo is not very beautiful and I look funny and very concentrated there, so I think that this quote fits perfectly. The beauty is not the most important point, the most important thing is to be a good person.)) To lift up my tag and make it more dimensional I used Memory Hardware resins and clay shapes prepared with [re]design with Prima® moulds. Wish you happy crafting!” ~Nadya Drozdova

“I just adore the Santorini collection – it’s a perfect mix of shabby and vintage/retro styles and colours. I made a tag , using the gorgeous “Camille” stamp from Julie Nutting . I stamped her out and coloured her up with Copic markers . I cut her out with the co-ordinating die and popped her onto a Julie Nutting base tag . The tag was decorated with several layers of Santorini papers and embellished with matching Santorini ephemera and flowers.“~ Rachel
“If you follow the blog for a moment, you probably have noticed that Santorini is one of my favorite collections! I just can’t get enough of this beautiful deep blue color. And the flowers are spectacular. This time, I decided to create three cards, paying with the blues and the pinks of the collection.” ~ Karine

“I picked up this cute white Timber panel at the craft shop last week and thought it would be a perfect backdrop for a beachy creation. I used the gorgeous Santorini collection and lots of my favourite blue shades. Layered some beautiful blooms over the Memory Hardware Shutters. I unscrewed the right side of the shutter and had it hanging....love the effect. I cannot wait to hang this one up in my holiday house! I just love how it turned out." ~ Stacey
