National Scrapbook Day Prima Blog Hop!

Saturday, May 3, 2014





Welcome to the NSD Prima Blog Hop! If you are coming from Alberto's blog you are in the right place! Prima has a fun-packed day planned with the wonderful Ambassadors, the talented Design Team, and our amazing Educators! We hope the projects inspire you to dig out your crafty supplies and have fun along with us.
Prima will be giving prizes away all day long on all of their social media outlets, along with a stunning main prize hosted on the Prima blog, so make sure you hop around and then comment on the main blog here! Love free classes? Want to learn new techniques? Join in on the marathon of "Live With Prima" classes filled with gorgeous projects kicking off at 7 am PT! Click here to watch!

For this hop I created a small little 6x6 piece with an inspirational quote! I used my collection Cartographer that I designed for Prima! I think it turned out really nice!






I decided to go with this quote stamp I found in my stash. Love this quote. It really speaks loudly to me. If you have something or someone that matters to you, cherish it, protect it, and fight for it. Fight for your dreams, your passions, and pursue them. I've learned that many times you have to pursue your dreams regardless of what people think! Be happy and live positive! So this little inspirational piece is special to me, and I leave you with that thought.

I also wanted to do a small little giveaway of a few little goodies from my Cartographer Collection!


 All you have to do is:
1. Become a follower of my blog! :)
2. Comment below this post and tell me what your dreams and aspirations are! Easy! This giveaway is open to anyone in the world!

Here is the list of participants!
Frank Garcia - You are here!

Your next stop is Maiko Miwa!

Thank You for stopping by!

  3. Frank - I enjoy your work sooooo much! It is a perfect balance of creativity and beauty. My dream -- I have so many. LOL! One right now is to open a studio where crafters could work, store their belongings, and sell their wares in an onsite store that would be open to the public.

  5. Stunning work (as usual), love it!!! I usually see your works on the ustream channel, I didn't know you have a blog, I'm happy to be your follower now. My dreams? To improve my scrapbook tecnique and to share my works with products and tecniques I love.
