Kaisercraft Bonjour Layout

Hi Scrappers!

Today I want to share with you some CT work for Flying Unicorn. The new collection "Bonjour" from Kaisercraft is just gorgeous. I love the color tones of this paper and the quality is outstanding!

This layout is of my daughter and grandson, who always make me smile.
For this page, I painted around the edges using White Crackle paint. Misted with some Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist and used a doily for the masking. Stamped my flower vine with some Peeled Paint Distress ink and made the bloom that is on top of the Dusty Attic piece.

Dont you just love the new Prima resin pieces? The bird bath here has to be one of my faves! Prima always makes me happy!

The good thing is that the Flying Unicorn Store is restocking their shelves with both these new beauties soon!  Right now Alda just got in the new ScrapCake and Pion Christmas lines!! New Riddersholm Chantilly Dawn are here as well!

So fly on over to the Store, check out the inspirational GALLERY, and join us for some fun in our Forums!

And don't forget to check out the November edition of Enchanting Creations!  Now available for viewing! Just click on the icon on the right hand side. Scrap-o-Ween is still hopping also..but for only about 9 more days!!

Hope you get crafty this weekend!!
Till next time, Happy Scrappin!

A Few New Projects~ScrapCake, Pion and Kaisercraft

Hey Scrappers!

Today I want to share a few CT projects for Flying Unicorn. Using ScrapCake, Pion and Kaisercraft collections, I actually made 3 layouts over the weekend. So easy to do when you have such nice quality papers to work with!

The first one I did is of my grandson. I used Pion papers which you can find HERE at the Flying Unicorn Store. I edited the picture before printing it out. Did you know that Flying Unicorn is the only US retailer that carries this wonderful line?

I distress stained some Dusty Attic corners to add to it. The small Prima tile and small brown roses were from a Swirlydoos kit I had. I also used some Pink Paislee mistables paper, inked it, and tried to make it look like a stamp by using my hole punch around the outer edge.

Here are some close ups:

The next one I did I used ScrapCake Bright side of Life collection, which you can find HERE. I did some fussy cutting and really was inspired by Gerry van Gent's  work...though I will never be as talented as she is!

The last one I did is of a good friends two little boys. I LOVE this photo..says so much I think. I used Kaisercraft's Chapter One papers.

I made my own mask by using Tim Holtz mask sheets and my Cricut. I painted the gates with Peeled Paint Distress Stain, and the DA piece with white Smooch which I then stamped with a script stamp and black ink.

I am so glad you came by!! Thank you for taking the time to check out my projects and I do hope if you haven't checked out Flying Unicorn, you will do so as well!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!
