New Prima and Pion Christmas

Hey scrappers!

Have good news today! The new Prima collections are now available at the Flying Unicorn Store! The papers are gorgeous! I did this layout using papers from the Pixie Glen collection. 

I couldn't get the photo exactly straight in my editing program, so I apologize for that..lol but you can see how cute these papers are. 

I made the cameo and if you are looking for the tutorial, you can find it HERE in the video section of the forum.

Also available at the store is the new Christmas line from Pion!! Thank goodness they came out with a Christmas line now because I have tons of cards to make. Since the holidays will be here before we know it, I made this album using papers from their collection. 

So if I were you, I would fly on over to the STORE and grab these before they are gone!! They're getting very popular! Did you know Flying Unicorn is one of the only stores that carry the Pion Paper lines??

Oh..and don't forget about our fabulous SCRAP-O-WEEN event coming October 1st and will last the whole month! Lots of daily games, challenges, prizes to be given away!! Hope to see you there!!

"A Joy To Remember" September Kit Reveal and Guest Designer!!

Hello scrappy friends!!

The first of the month is always so exciting for us at Flying Unicorn because it means we finally get to share the beautiful kit of the month that Alda puts together for us!!

This months kit "A Joy To Remember" blows me away. It is SO versatile. The Off the Page Project is out of this world!! Take a look at what I've made 'so far' with this kit! I added some flowers from my own stash on a couple projects because I'm just a flower hog. Used butterflies from the fabulous Lisa Gregory and I made my own cameo.

 I took the Kaiser Craft Accordion Frame apart and used papers from the kit to make this:
The Off the Page Project is a 3 piece paint bucket kit..this is what I did with mine:
Yes I have Halloween on the brain!!

Come on over to Flying Unicorn Forum, Store and Gallery to see the other creations made by the CT using this kit!! Get yours now because they sell out extremely fast!!

I am so so happy to announce our September Guest Designer today as well!!! Maggi Harding!!!

Maggi is a truly gifted designer and we are so proud and honored that she said yes to being this months Guest Designer!!
