Prima and Bo Bunny Layouts

Hey everyone!

Seems like forever since I've blogged! It's been a crazy busy time and I'm so glad it's slowing down. I have been working on a couple CT layouts for Flying Unicorn using some Prima and Bo Bunny I'd like to share with you. These are babies of two friends and they're just too cute not to scrap! I told them I'm going to have to make them each an album.

The first one is the Forever Fall Collection from Bo Bunny.  I won this collection from the Flying Unicorn auction and got the hinges, flourish and mistable leaves from my favorite LSS "The Scrap Trap"
Here are some close ups. I used Prima flowers, Kaisercraft hinge and flourish. I misted the mistables with Glimmer Mist and used Glimmer Glam on the hinges which I then stamped over top.

This is CT work for Flying Unicorn using Prima Pixie Glen Collection.
I fussy cut the clock from another Prima sheet and stitched around the photo. I used some Prima flocked rubons and fussy cut the little fairies out which I covered with Glossy Accents. Added some Websters trim around the flower (from an old Swirlydoo kit I had)  The rubon words and chipboard letters are from a Flying Uni kit and I covered them with Diamond Dust after I painted them with Picket Fence Crackle paint.I also used a large doily as a mask.

I do hope you join us in the FORUM at Flying Unicorn! We have some VERY fun changes and updates happening for the new year!!

Thank you all for stopping by..and I hope you have a blessed New Year!!!

Few new Layouts

Hey scrapping friends!

Just wanted to share some layouts I have been working on and a couple from the December issue of  Enchanting Creations Magazine.

For this one I used Websters Sweet Season collection. This is a layout of our dear little friend Lennon who lost his fight to cancer this past Sept. He touched so many people..he has no idea how much he changed our lives.

This one I used Pion's For Father paper collection available at the Flying Unicorn Store.  My darling grandson sitting with his gammy.

The next two I did for the Enchanting Creations magazine-December issue. I used CI Winter Song collection and ScrapCake papers for these. Also from the STORE.

Just reminding you all about the tutorials going on at the FORUM all month long!! Our Christmas Party was a blast with all our fun games, giveaways and socializing!! Hope you can join in the fun!!

See you soon!!

Winter Song

Hey scrappers!

Just sharing a new layout today using the most beautiful collection from Creative Imaginations, Winter Song from the Flying Unicorn Store.

This collection is so gorgeous.  I love the non-traditional Christmas/Winter colors. It's so versatile!!

I did some fussy cutting from another sheet and added it to the bottom. Made the twine flowers, and used a vine from Dusty Attic. Bird Cage is Prima. I added some Stickles for sparkle.

We are having SO much fun with our Santa's Workshop at Flying Unicorn!! Each day we are introducing new tutorials for you and if you do at least one tutorial you can be eligible for the Santa Sack prizes!!!  Click HERE  for all the fun details!!

Silver Bells Challenge @ Flying Unicorn

Hey Scrappers!

It's always so fun at the start of each new month at Flying Unicorn. Not only does it mean it's time for the kit reveal, but it also means it's the start of lots new fun challenges!!

For this month, I'm hosting a challenge called "Silver Bells". Now my first thought for this challenge of course was Christmas. I was going to do some silver and blue Christmas type theme for my layout, but as I started to put it all together a pink flower was lying next to the silver, and it looked so good together that I decided to change it..I guess that is how scrapping goes sometimes!

I used Creative Imaginations new collection Winter Song available at the STORE. I also used some Prima flowers, some fabulous Dusty Attic, and Iced Spruce Distress ink. The new Winter collection from Tim Holtz which you can find HERE. They come in a pack of 3 and the colors are gorgeous!!

Here is my example I made for the challenge.

The pink butterflies are courtesy of the most fabulous Lisa Gregory and I made the cameo myself. You can find a tutorial for the cameo HERE if you are interested in trying to make your own. They really are fun and addicting!!

Don't forget about our Santa's Workshop happening this month at the Flying Unicorn! Click HERE to check out the tutorial calendar to see if there is anything you may be interested in learning about. We are also hosting a Christmas online party where we'll be having open chats, games, and prizes on December 13th. Lot's of other fun things happening at Flying Unicorn this month and I will keep you posted!!

Till next time..Happy Scrappin!
