Happy - Shimmerz


Hi everyone! Today I am up on the Shimmerz Blog with this layout created for using the April Prima pick colors.  Have you ever participated in a color palette challenge and just get stumped on the colors you have to use…like you have nothing in those colors to play with. Well use some Shimmerz and add those colors to your project or just use them to add more color to your backgrounds. I started with the new Prima Butterfly Collection from the Flying Unicorn store.
 

 

 

I have added splashes and splatters of I’m Not Limon, Coral Reef, and Me &Blue Inklings on this layout to add some color to the background.
 

 

 
The Creative Embellishments chippys are finished with gesso and a misting of Bamboo Leaf Spritz.
 


 
My final touches were to add some butterfly masking with Spun Sugar Dazzlerz and splatters of Before Dawn Vibez.
  
 
 
 

 

 
On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a sample for FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration and watch out for giveaways! Take care and happy Scrapping!

Together - CSI and Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! This month Creative Embellishments are guests at CSI and this is my creation for Case File No. 161. I love the colors on this one…such a different combo to play with! I really enjoy CSI case file…they force me to journal a bit and I need that little push!  I have used Maja Design Nyhavn Collection from the Flying Unicorn store.
 
 

 
For my evidence I used some: wet medium, stripes, triangles and metal. I tucked in pieces from the Distressed Chicken Wire Border and I LOVE using the Distressed Text Stamp!
 
The title chippy is covered with some Dazzlerz from Shimmerz…lots of texture on that chippy. Add some journaling...case solved!
 

That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the new April challenge and play along with us!  Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page…please share your CSI entries with us too!! Take care and happy Scrapping!

Bits and Pieces - Playdate Thursday Flying Unicorn


Hi everyone! It is Playdate Thursday at the Flying Unicorn and I have a tip on how to use up all those bits and pieces of collections! I always have to have the add ons with collections, you know the tags, the journal books, the brads and chipboard pieces. Yes and I ALWAYS have these things left over long after the collection papers are gone! I now find these leftover bits and pieces are perfect for cards and tags.
 


Lets start the card with some journal pages from the Prima Epiphany collections and chipboard pieces from the Prima Fairy collection.
 

 

I distressed the papers edges and picked out some old Prima flowers…probably from collections years ago.
 
 

Layer the card pieces together and I added some crinkle seam binding and twine.

 
 

Add a couple of gems and brads from another old collection…yes more leftovers…and I added some drops of Shimmerz Inkingz…gotta love the Inklingz!! I even tucked in some bits and pieces leftover from a Creative Embellishments chippy.
 



Finish is all off with dabs of Golden Gesso here and there.
 
 

That is it! Here is another tag I made this month with the same leftovers. I actually love these journal cards now for cards and tags…and I will always buy them with the new collections!  

 
 

Have a great week everyone!

Smile - Shimmerz


Hi everyone! Today I  have a layout to share featuring lots of Shimmerz goodies on it! The papers have a tint of the colors already so why not add more! They are from Prima Timeless Memories collection at the Flying Unicorn store.
 

 


After stencilling the background I added some Terra Cotta Spritz. Such a pretty color!


 
The Creative Embellishments chippys are all finished with Spotlight White Inklingz and the title chippys has a coat of Great Fruit Creameez. If you have not tried the Inklingz and Creameez yet it is a must have! They are my favs! Little pods of yumminess!
 



After my layout was done I added some drops of Brass Knuckles Inklingz in the background.

Trend Setter - CSI 160 - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! This month Creative Embellishments are guests at CSI and this is my creation for Case File No. 160. The color scheme is so pretty and such a fun case file. Anything that will get me journaling is awesome!

 
For my evidence I used some: frames, flowers, resins, stamps and transparent items. I used a Leafy Vine Frame for the photo and cut off a small piece of it to add to the bottom corner cluster. I used UHK Gallery Paris Collection from the Flying Unicorn store.
 

 
Here are some close ups. The chippys are finished with a coat of gesso and than I added some Shimmerz Inklingz to them to fit the color scheme. I did some journaling in 3 spots...case solved!

 
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the new April challenge and play along with us!  Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page…please share your CSI entries with us too!! Take care and happy Scrapping!
