Remembers - Creative Embellishments Layout

Hi everyone! Shona here today with a layout to share…have you seen all the NEW chippys in the store! They are yummy and I could not wait to play with some. I have used the new Ivy Wreath frame to bring attention to the center of my page and added focus to this fabulous photo of my niece. The papers are Prima Stationers Desk from the Flying Unicorn store.
 
I cut the chippy piece to tuck in and frame not only the photo but the embellishments around it.
 
In the background I have also used the CE DistressedCheckered stamp. Seriously check out the stamps..they are amazing!
 
To finish the layout off I have added a few pieces from the Moroccan Lattice Panel. This piece is definitely a huge fav of mine and I tuck it in here and there on a lot of my projects! Little drops and drips of Shimmerz Inklingz were my last touches made.

 
Don’t forget to check out the monthly challenge and play along with us!  Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page. Take care and happy Scrapping!

Happiness - Mixed Media layout with Shimmerz


Hi everyone.....and Happy Friday to you all! Today I am up on the Shimmerz blog and I have a mixed media layout to share with you …and I wanted to play with some of my new Shimmerz products. The papers are a new collection from Riddersholm called Vintage Venture and are available at the Flying Unicorn store.


After I did some background masking I added some of the new Well Blue Me Down Coloringz…this is going to be a new fav color…its amazing! I added it underneath where the clusters will go and I adore the way it pokes out and adds some vibrant color to this layout. I heat set this and added some Don’t Be Suede Coloringz along beside it now. The two blended perfectly with each showing brilliantly in the background.
 
 

After the layout was complete I added some drop and dips of the two Coloringz, Bold Blimmer Blingz and Bass Knuckles Inklingz. I just adore the say this layout of my daughter and grandson turned out!

Scrap Around the World and the Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! This month the Flying Unicorn is a major sponsor at Scrap Around the World challenge site…and the CT got to play along with the gorgeous November Mood Board! It is so easy to play along. Here is this months mood board!


 There are so many ways you can get inspired - the music note paper,
rough twine, flowers, rich colours, bicycles, sunflare, lace & doilies,
woodgrain & script fonts.  The choice is up to you! 
Here is my take on the mood board...I adore this photo of my mom when she was about 17 years old...cutie pie! I used Prima Epiphany Collection and flowers and lots of yummy Shimmerz goodies..all from the Flying Unicorn store!





Have a great week everyone! Take care and happy scrapping!

My Love of Naked Chippys - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Shona here today with a layout to share. My love of naked chippys…I have become addicted. Sure I finish them sometimes but there is just something about the unfinished ones that I love…that look is just yummy! 


 

While I was creating the background I added stamping with the Distressed Checkered Stamp...CE stamps are so amazing!  I added chippy pieces from the Love Knot Panel behind the photo.
 


In the clusters I added pieces from the Leafy CornerFlourish Set…I adore these flourishes!
 
Last close up you can see I also tucked in a small piece from the Moroccan Lattice Panel.

Flying Unicorn Your Passion Your Art November kit


Hello everyone! Today I have two projects to share with you! Both are created with the yummy Flying Unicorn November Your Passion Your Art Kit. The KIT Off the Page project was created for a Shimmerz and Hazel & Ruby post.  Hazel & Ruby are an amazing manufacturer that designs gorgeous supplies for crafting!  I have used their stencil on this project to create the NOEL title. It is so easy..you just place the letters on your paper and cut around them. They have a sticky back and they stay in place perfectly until you peel them off to use again..AND they are large so they worked perfect for me.
For my OTP I have created a wall hanging for the holidays. The hanging is quite large and will be perfect in my hallway. I used Riddersholm's Country Christmas collection from the Flying Unicorn store!


I did some masking on the heart frame with some Gold Mine Texturez and after that was dry I added some Good as Gold and I’m Not Limon Inklingz to finish it off.


Once dried I started to add the embellishments. The Creative Embellishments chippys are finished with some Gold Glimmer Blingz with touches of Tidy Widy Texturez to make it look like snow. Touches also on the Petaloo flowers...all from the store!


I added some Tidy Widy Texturez on the Hazel & Ruby letters to finish them off. I love the way this turned out.

 

Next up I have a layout to share.


I have used some gorgeous Patina Texturez for masking in the background and lots of stamping.


When I decided where my clusters were going on this layout I misted the background behind where they would be with the NEW Oh Say Can U Sea Coloringz…what a yummy color! Look at all the gorgeous embellishments and flowers in the kit!


Once the layout was put together I finished it off with some sprinkles of  Inklingz and I added some of the metals and Bling in the kit.

 
 Well that is it for today…Take care and Happy Scrapping!
