Creating with Prima and Ingvild Bolme

Last night I attended the most amazing class....taught by none other than the Queen of Prima herself, Ingvild Bolme!


Ingvild lives in Norway, but was in the U.S. for CHA and decided to come up north to teach a few classes! Thanks to Trisha Ladouceur, a Prima Educator, and Treasured Memories scrapbook store for organizing this wonderful event :)

Here is the gorgeous layout we made....
Ingvild's incredible design!
 All Prima goodies on this layout, and the best part was using Ingvild's new tools, which she designed for Prima...but they're not scheduled for release until October.
The amazing multi-distresser tool
Check out all the bits and pieces incorporated into this tool...
The end comes off to expose a metal brush.
I used the metal brush to distress the edges of my photo...
The stamped fence in the background is a new iron fence Prima stamp
The butterflies and delicate blue flowers on the right are rub-ons, and the red flowers are fussy cut with Ingvild's new craft knife.


I'm not big on using a craft knife, but this one is going on my shopping list!   


These edges were distressed with the tool and inked with Ingvild's new chalk inks.

Look at this cool ergonomic design...with a little handle!
Soooo easy to hold and manipulate! Loved these inks!
We added extra flowers along the Prima vine to create a lush floral border.
This class was a fabulous experience, and I was thrilled to meet Ingvild. 
That's what I love about the scrapbooking industry...it has become a global community, and we can share our passion for art and design all around the world!

  2. Beautiful layout and happy for you that you could enjoy Ingvild's layout class. Ingvild is such a nice lady. I was her helper today at our store but unfortunately I couldn't take the class as I was working in the store today, but I did see the layout that the ladies created and she did give a little demonstration of all her awesome tools. I can't wait to buy her craft knife and her 5 in 1 distressing tool when they are available for sale. Isn't it great that we can all have this nice little community who share our passion? It's always so nice to make new friends. Glad I met you :)
