Dirt and Trucks = FUN - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone! Today I have a very different layout to share..different for me…NO flowers. I decided to try a no flower layout of my cutie pie grandson.
 

I have used the Distressed Checkerd Stamp in the background…I just love Creative Embellishments distressed stamps, they are one of my scrappy must haves and I  used them all the time. They are not as bold as regular and blend in beautifully.
 
I have used pieces from the Retro Square Panel to frame the photo and also in the bottom corner. I used some Shimmerz Dazzlerz and a little bit of glitter to finish them off.
 
 
The title chippy is from the Celebrate Word Set and I finished it the same way.
 
That is it for me for today! Don’t forget to check out the new May challenge and play along with us!  Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page… Take care and happy Scrapping!

Flying Unicorn May Your Passion Your Art KOM Cards


Hi everyone! I am back with a couple of cards to share from the Flying Unicorn May Your Passion Your Art kits….I always love to make a couple of cards/tags each month to tuck away into my stash for when I need them and the Small Art kit is perfect for those!

 

I love the feathers in the kit…something I rarely use but so cute!

 
I used the Shimmerz Texturez in the kit for the background text masking! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE the fun beads and micas in the kit!

 

Here is the other card…loaded with some Shimmerz mists and kit embellishments.



 

 
Well that it for today! The presales have started for the June Kits so head on over to the Flying Unicorn store and check them out! Take care and happy scrapping J

Flying Unicorn May Off the Page and Layout


Hi everyone! I am back with a couple more shares from the Flying Unicorn May kit. Each month the kit comes with a fun Off the Page project and this months is this book box that you can alter. I decided to use Prima’s Butterfly Collection on mine.

 
I painted the box first with Gesso and added the Buttlerfly papers. I did lots of stamping and some masking in the background. I had this old lace around that I used on the binding part and added some of the butterflies from the collection.

 
I tucked in some Creative Embellishments chippys and the final touch was some Shimmerz Inklingz.
 
 


I also have a layout to share. I just adore the gorgeous 13 ARTS papers in this kit!

 

I actually used Shimmerz paints on a stamp in the background.
 

Look at all the fun embellishments in the kit!

 

Well that it for today! Take care and happy scrapping J

Family - Creative Embellishments

Hi everyone and happy May to you all! Wow this year is just flying by so far! Today I am up on the Creative Embellishments blog today with a layout featuring a cute fun photo of my daughter and grandsons…they are just too sweet. I also used this weeks Mojo Monday sketch from the Flying Unicorn as my starting point.
 
 
 
I have tucked pieces of the Punchinella Panel into the clusters and around the photo.
 


 
I just adore all these fun titles pieces in the word set. This one is from the Celebrated Word Set. I have covered my chippys with a coat of gesso and added some beads for extra texture on them.
 
 
 


I also have a little card I created and I used a Clock Face chippy as the focal point on it.
 
 
 


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

Mixed Media Canvas - Flying Unicorn May Kit and Shimmerz


Hi everyone! Today I have a fun canvas that I have created with the May Your Passion Your Art kit from the Flying Unicorn. I just love to create on a canvas and Shimmerz just makes that creating so much fun! I also have been itching to try that hot glue technique that I keep seeing. So much fun…just add some hot glue drips to add texture to your project.
 


After I have applied all the fun trinkets and Creative Embellishments chippys to my canvas it gets a coat of Gesso.  Next up is some yummy Shimmerz for color! My background consists of Coloringz in Oh Can USea, Blue Me Down. Don’t Be Suede. These 3 colors seem to be on a lot of my project this year!
 


A few more close ups. I finished it all off with Inklingz in Spotlight White and Brass Knuckles. I adore this canvas of metal, chippys, and antique pieces (my brother gives me lots of cool metal antique pieces).
 


I will be back soon with more creations from the Flying Unicorn May kit. Have a great weekend!  Take care and happy Scrapping!
