Is there anything better than two companies combining their amazing products? Today we have a joint venture by Prima Marketing and Faber-Castell! Not only do our products work perfectly together, but they provide wonderful platforms for inspiration and creativity!
We challenged our talented design teams to create projects combining products just for YOU! Hopefully they will get your creativity going too.

My favorite technique on this layout:
I blended the blue and green gelatos directly on the foam stamp and stamped up a small garden on cream cardstock. Then, I cut out the garden with craft knife and attached to the layout. I added details with black journaling pen.

Happy hopping everyone!
