A bit of Prima and a little Happy Christmas!

Today I want to share a few projects that I did using some items from the Flying Unicorn Store. 

First up is a LO I did for Mish's Stitch Challenge in the Flying Unicorn Forums. I used Prima Optimist Collection. 

 I used my Sew Easy tool to do the stitching. Love this tool!!! The background is stamped using a Kaisercraft script stamp and Ingvild Bolme White Chalk Ink.

I just had to do a bit of fun fussy cutting too! Petaloo and Prima flowers topped it off

 Some Junkyard Findings are added in too. I detailed using a White Sharpie Pen.

When I saw new Inkido Happy Christmas had arrived in the store, I grabbed some right away! This collection is right up my alley. Vintage colors and's perfect!

I did use a bit of Kaisercraft St. Nicholas for my circles..which were cut out using my Cricut. The background masking is done using the Finnabair Bubbles Mask and a Mister Huey's Triangle mask. I used Studio 490 embossing paste.

The new Petaloo Flowers that are in the store are more than gorgeous! I love these new Floral Ephemera and Blooms.

Last but not least I made a Happy Christmas card using Santa's Sledge papers.

Cottage Cutz Ivy Made Easy die is perfect for cards and tags. I used some Coordinations Cardstock to cut out my ivy and my Tim Holtz Deer die cut.

I wanted to add some sparkle to my card to make it more festive so I used Stickles in Diamond and used a Q-tip to smear it all over my card, flowers and ivy.

Don't forget to check out "What's New" in the store and our new "Inspiring Your Art" page. It sure takes alot of the guess work out of matching products to paper collections!

Happy Creating!

Lets state the  obvious first that she has mad crazy talent and her works are  pieces of  art  - and I know I am thrilled that she shares her passion with all of us to see.  What you may not  know  is how truly adorable, and  funny, and a heart of gold she possess  that  if you do not know that  yet, you  will - She is  beautiful inside and  out !  Without  further adieu I will let Nadia introduce herself : 
"My name is Nadia Cannizzo, I am 35 and I live in Sydney, Australia. I was born and raised in Greece, and I have been married to my Italian husband for 14 years now, and that is where my surname comes from! I have 3 young MUCH loved and MUCH wanted daughters, Maria Elena (6 ) and Ioanna (4) and my precious miracle baby Sofia who is just 2 months old. . Being a mum is what I always wanted to be and nothing fulfills me more than my children. By day I am a Primary School teacher, which I absolutely LOVE and at the moment I am working part time. I started scrapping about 3 years ago and consider this craft to be the longest hobby I have ever had! I am a Gemini after all , and can't really stay interested in anything for very long. When not creating, I absolutely LOVE cooking, spending time with my family, and ...believe it or not cleaning! I am a bit of a clean freak. My motto in life is "Nothing is impossible" and I rarely take no for an answer ."
