First up...Paper Dolls are C-R-A-Z-Y hot right now!!  Now, these are not the same paper dolls we played with as kids....these are paper dolls for big girls!!  These ladies are fun, fashionable, and sassy!!

I was so excited when I saw what our "Crafty Sisters" Tiffany and Amberly had made using one of the  Stamps and then the new Zella Teal line!!  Love the look?  Check out the entire Prima Zella Teal scrapbook paper collection!  Combined that with our Julie Nutting Doll stamps for such a cute idea!!  These are fun to customize and give as gift tags or cards.

I LOVE the look of Vintage Ornaments...but they are getting really hard to find!  SOLUTION: Create your own!!  Our "Crafty Sisters" used....yep you guessed it....PRIMA!!!  They started out with a plain glass ornament and then with a little paint, wax, and a few vintage looking embellishments made with, believe it or not, HOT GLUE and the Prima Moulds.  RESULTS: An AMAZING Vintage ornament that looks like it cost you $15-20! -Heck maybe more!!!  LOVE IT!
