Provencial Collection @ Flying Unicorn

Hey everyone!!

Just sharing with you some CT work for Flying Unicorn!

This layout is of my beautiful daughter when she got her pink cowgirl hat from her grandma. It was a birthday gift and pretty much the only thing she wanted that year.

I used new Creative Imaginations Provencial Collection from the STORE. The Dusty Attic Fence, Glimmer Mist and Prima Resin are from the STORE as well. The larger aqua flower is from a past Swirlydoos kit. I used Crafters Workshop Chicken Wire mask for the background. Used my new sewing machine for stitching around the edges.
The quote on the picture reads:
"When a girl ceases to blush,
She has lost the most powerful charm of her beauty"
Don't forget to stop by our FORUM for some really fun challenges and great prizes! Scrap O Ween was a blast..and now we are getting ready for December with our Santa's Workshop!!! Stay tuned for details..will post soon!!

Till then, Happy Scrappin!!

Creative Imaginations "Devotion Collection"

Hey everyone!

Just sharing a quick layout I did using new Creative Imaginations Devotion Collection from the Flying Unicorn Store!

This collection is one of the prettiest I've seen! Totally romantic and the colors are stunning! I'm not really sure if I'm totally done with this layout yet..but..let me know what you think it's missing..
I used my new sewing machine to stitch around the edges, and used some Glacier Glimmer Mist on the Chicken Wire mask to give the background just a slight design. Didn't want alot as the paper is just gorgeous on it's own. The Prima Resin Bird is also from the STORE and I made the vine using Gabrielle Pollacco's tutorial as my guide. Some Dusty Attic chipboard which I painted with some Glimmer Glam from the STORE and Prima flowers.

As I said, I'm still not please take a moment and tell me what you think is honest..i can take it! lol

Till next time..Happy Scrappin!

Glitz~ Beautiful Dreamer

Hey Scrappers!!

Today I am sharing some CT work for Flying Unicorn!

I used Glitz Beautiful Dreamer papers that will be available soon at the store! I love this collection..soo pretty!! This is a picture of my dd on Decade Day at school. She dressed in the 20's era and tried to 'pose'

I stamped the background paper with a script stamp from Prima. I also made my own vine using Gabrielle Pollacco's video tutorial as my guide.

The beautiful cameo in the window is from my scrappy friend Cathi. I spritzed some beige flowers with Cadillac Pink Mist to make them match.

Riddersholm "Chantilly Dawn"

Hey everyone!
Just sharing a new layout I did using the brand new collection from Riddersholm, "Chantilly Dawn" found at the Flying Unicorn Store. Flying Unicorn is proud to carry hard to find papers like Riddersholm, Pion, and ScrapCake. They're the only US retailer for some of these fabulous lines!!

I also made this for inspiration for our wonderful CT member, Maggi who is hosting a "Heavy Metal" Challenge at the Flying Unicorn Forum. I used some of my copper I have and embossed it with my Cuttlebug to make my design. I also used Tim Holtz metal corners. Lots of Prima flowers and a Dusty Attic frame topped it off. I made a few of the blooms using Gabrielle Pollacco's tut but hers are way prettier!! How does she make it look so easy???

Come on over to the Challenge Forum and see what we can inspire you to be a part of! We have LOTS of challenges..a little something for everyone..with some great prizes!!!

See you soon!! Happy Scrapping!
