Creative Team Work~G.C.D. Studios

Hello scrapping friends!

Today I'm sharing some Creative Team work that I did for Flying Unicorn. I worked on this layout for awhile trying to incorporate some prettiness but still keep it boyish..not sure if I pulled it off or

I used paper from G.C.D. Studios from their Ella Blue collection. It's truly beautiful!
Everything but the Dusty Attic chippies are from the Flying Unicorn Store. Though Flying Unicorn does carry Dusty Attic and Scrap FX chipboard!!!!

The frame I made out of Tim Holtz Grungepaper and did a painting/stamping technique that I'll share on tutorial on later if you're interested.  I used my brick stamp to get the effect.

I used Copic markers on the Dusty Attic mushrooms and topped them off with Rock Candy.
For the Dusty Attic Chicken Wire Panel I stitched several criss-cross stitches just to give it a little more detail. I was going to run vine thru it, but it was just 'too much'.

Don't forget!! The new June kit "Treasured Moments" from Flying Unicorn will reveal on June 1st!! Click HERE to see some sneak peeks of what's coming!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

Websters and Fancy Pants

Hi Scrappers!

I've been working on some lo's for the past few days and thought I better get them posted!

For this first LO, I used Websters Country Estate paper. I did this LO for a challenge on of our CT members is hosting. It's the All Things Pretty Challenge. You had to use lace and butterflies..and who doesn't love butterflies? My beautiful butterflies are courtesy of my scrapping sister, Lisa Gregory.

This is a pic of my darling grandson, and I LOVE the look on his Too cute!

I did some fussy cutting, and made an embellie out of Memory Glass. Here are some close ups:

The next LO I did is some CT work for Flying Unicorn using Fancy Pants "It's the Little Things" Collection. I based this on a lo by Nerridam's "A Little Birdie."

Please stop by our Flying Unicorn Forum and join us in our Cyber Open House that is going on! Alda is giving away daily prizes and lots more! Remember someone will win a RAK valued over $50 too!

Some More Fun Creative Team Work !

I've been having SO much fun playing with all the goodies from Flying Unicorn! The "Spring Awakening" Collection from the Scrap Cake is to die for! Click HERE to find it. I like the versatility of it, as you can do both boy and girl lo's with this line. Here is one I did using this collection. I based it on a sketch at Flying Unicorn, which you can see HERE in the forum. It's a picture of my daughter when she was a baby, and it was my first try at hand photo coloring:
 The next lo I did was using Pink Paislee's Butterfly Garden Collection. This paper is just beautiful!!
I used Lisa Gregory's Scrabble Tile letter tutorial, and got the bird cage inspiration from Lisa Valentine. Love how she did her birdcage in her "Giggle" layout.

 This last one, I'm not so sure I'm totally loving it or not. Fancy Pants "It's the Little Things" Collection is bright and fun and really neat to work with. So much you can mix and match!! I know it's not my typical style, which is why I'm feeling so-so about it, but the chipboard pieces and transparent overlay are really cute!!! I couldn't get a great pic of this layout due to the glare on the overlay. However, you can see in the close ups how cute this line really is.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more CT work AND a really fun announcement from Flying Unicorn!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!
