Magic of OZ Mini Album

 Hey everyone!

Next month I am taking our Girl Scout troop to a place called Storybook Land. Storybook Land is of course filled with all kinds of fun stuff that is based on children's stories and nursery rhymes. The place is filled with the likes of Humpty Dumpty, Jack and Jill, Paul Bunyan, and even a Medieval castle! Of course my favorite thing to see is the Land of Oz!! So for that trip, I made a Graphic 45 Magic of Oz mini for all our pictures. It is going to be so fun filling this album from our trip!

I added a little story book on this page so we can add extra pics:
This page has a place for me to write all out our trip and the black rose on the corner my daughter made.

I got the Magic of Oz paper and some of the other goodies from the Flying Unicorn Store. Some of the flowers were from a previous Swirly kit. But most of the items you can find at the store along with some other new collections, embellies and FANTASTIC flowers!!!

Flying Unicorn has a great store, fun forum and very inspirational gallery!! Join us for some fun challenges if you haven't already! We would love to have you!

So glad you stopped by! Thank you all for your sweet comments..and till next time

Happy Scrappin!

Fabulous Fabscraps!!

Hey scrappers!

The first time I heard about FABSCRAPS was from my good friend Brandi who happens to own my favorite local scrap store and I totally fell in love with their collections. I was like a kid at Christmas when I saw that Alda carried it in the Flying Unicorn Store!! OMGosh..she's such an enabler..lol..which is why we love her!

So I decided to chose a few sheets, mixed between the High Tea and Heritage collections to do this layout. I've been wanting to do a lo with some of my favorite John Waterhouse paintings. I'm working on Waterhouse ATC cards next! So with a little mojo and beautiful paper to work with..here is what I came up with.

 The stick pin my daughter made and I misted the Melissa Frances resin piece with Sugar Plum Fairy Mist
I covered the Dusty Attic piece with Glimmer Glam and then stamped it with a script stamp
Used my Cricut to cut branches and hung little charms from them:
And of course flower clusters are a must:

I truly believe this collection is a must for any vintage scrapper! I think you'll really love it!! You can find these collections and LOTS of other goodies in the Flying Unicorn STORE. Alda has really good prices..fast shipping and always the newest scrapping items you may be looking for!! I do believe there is FREE shipping for orders of $75 or more also!!

For those of you in the Jamestown North Dakota area, I have to give a shout out to Brandi who owns the Scrap Trap!! Head over there for some great deals and beautiful scrapping items!!

Going to go play some more with this fab collection!! Till next time, Happy Scrappin everyone!!

New layouts for Challenges at Flying Unicorn!

Hey Scrappers!

I have a lot to share today! I've been working on some projects for some challenges over at Flying Unicorn. I also have been working on making my own Cameos and other resin pieces for scrapping. Oh and I can't forget the stick pins my daughters and I have been working on...all influenced by the newest scrapping hot spot, Flying Unicorn!

For the first one here, I did this just for inspiration for the Die Cut Challenge in the forum. The flower on the bottom and the "Cheri" on the lamp post was made with my Cricut. Most of the stuff is from a past Swirlydoos kit I had and of course I mixed in some products from the Flying Unicorn Store. The stick pin is one my step daughter made.

This next one I did is for a challenge I am co-hosting with Alda. It's a distressing challenge and can be found HERE in the forum. It is a picture of my daughter with her very first surfboard!

So, I found these FAB molds on Etsy from Mold Muse and am really starting to get into making my own cameos and other pieces for projects. It took me a little research to learn what to do..but these are my first ones:
I did learn how to make the two tone a bit better..so trying that later today. I also got hooked on making stick pins from a swap that is going on at Flying Unicorn too! Do you see what enablers they all are..LOL! My daughters helped me create some of these. Super fun!

Well I thank you for stopping by! Please visit us at Flying Unicorn for some great challenges, swaps, inspirational gallery, and the most awesome scrapbook store!! Plus we have lots of good people and tons of fun to be had!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

Websters Ladies and Gents Collection

 Hi scrappers!!

Today I am sharing a layout I did using some Websters, "Ladies and Gents" Collection. This picture of my dd was taken by her sister in law in California. I just think it shows how she is becoming such a little young lady. She is just so beautiful to me.

I used some Dusty Attic chipboard and the dress form is from Kaisercraft which I dressed up with different trims. Most everything on here is from Websters. The flowers are Flying Unicorn, and Prima. The red roses are the ones I made using my molds. (A new hobby) They're my first ones ever and I happy how they turned out. The stick pin is from Angelica @ Swirlydoos...off of her Etsy store. The hinge I painted and then stamped with a script stamp I have. I saw Gabrielle Pollacco do this on one of her layouts and LOVE the way it looks.

There is also a challenge going on over at Flying Unicorn. One of our CT members is hosting a Mini Matchbox Challenge.  I have never done one before, but this is how mine turned out...not sure about what I think of it.

Well I hope you join us at our Forum for some other fun challenges, inspiration and all around fun! We've been doing swaps also and they're very popular so come and join us!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!
