Awesome - Creative Embellishments and Shimmerz

Hi everyone! Today I am up on the Shimmerz Blog and the Creative Embellishments Blog. I have also used some 7 Dots Papers and Petaloo flowers from the Flying Unicorn store!


The Creative Embellishments chippys are all finished with some Shimmerz Inklingz. After that dried I added some clear crackle. You can also see in the background I have used some Shimmerz Spun Sugar Dazzlerz for the masking.


Here you can see the Creative Embellishments chippy title on the bottom of the page…there are 2 chippys in this set and I only used one. I also added some Shimmerz paint drops in Aqua Marine and Key Lime!


Tucked in with the photo and flowers is one of the chippys from flourish set 15.


Well that is it for today ...I hope you all have a fabulous week! Take care and happy scrapping!

Memories - Shimmerz Inklingz

Hi everyone! Today I am  up on the Shimmerz Blog with a layout to share.  I must say..the new Inklingz are just so awesome and the colors and shimmerz oh so pretty! On this layout I have used the new Inklings to cover the chippys, alter the metals, some fabulous drips and I even did some stamping with them! I have also used some  yummy Riddersholm Vintage Pink Collection, Petaloo flowers and Creative Embellishments chippys from the Flying Unicorn Store!

Flying Unicorn JulyYour Passion Your Art KOM part 2

Hi everyone! I am back with 2 projects that I have created with the Flying Unicorn July Your Passion Your Art Kit of the Month. I love the photo in this layout…so adorable. My friend sent me some of her pics from a photo shoot and I was so excited to scrap them. I used the 13 ARTS papers in the kit and lots of the mediums and embellishments.

Here is a close up of the top corner…love the resin pieces in the kit!

Some background masking with the masks in the kit and I fussy cut the butterflies from the kit papers.

Look at all the cool embellishments in this kit!

The Kit always comes with an off the page project and this months was this cute wooden row boat. I decided to stand mine up and make it like a little shelf of goodies.

I added in some Creative Embellishment chippys from the Flying Unicorn store to finish it off.

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

Creative Embellishments July Challenge

Hi everyone! The beginning of the month always brings a NEW Challenge to Creative Embellishments! This months there is an inspiration photo and the challenge is a joint challenge with Paper Wings Productions. Part of the challenge is to use some heat or dry embossing on your creation. The photo
has a relaxing tropical feel to it and inspired me to create with some pretty pinks and flowers.

I created two tag/cards with my Flying Unicorn Your Passion Your Art July Kit of the Month!

For my doll tag I have used a piece from the “out of this world frame” and some Stampendous embossing enamel to finish it off.

 My Charming tag/card has pieces of “flourish 5” tucked in with the flower. That flourish is finished with Stampendous aged embossing enamel, I love the vintage look of them!

I hope you all swing by and play along in this months Challenge...you just might win a gift certificate to the Creative Embellishments store! Take care and happy scrapping!

Flying Unicorn JulyYour Passion Your Art KOM part 1

Hi everyone! I have a couple of projects to share with you that I have created with the Flying Unicorn July Your Passion Your Art Kit ofthe Month. I just LOVE the 13 ARTS papers in the kit! They have such beautiful textures on their background and are perfect for mixed media projects. First I have a layout that I created with them.

There are two 13 ARTS stencils in the kits and I have used some 13 ARTS texture paste in the background.

The kits also are loaded with yummy Petaloo flowers, butterflies and those fun Prima resins!

I also love the rub ons in the kit! They add so much to a background.

Next I have a Canvas that I created with the 13 ARTS papers as well. For this project I used lots of embellishments from the kit and my stash Shimmerz paints.

I painted some of the resin butterflies with gesso and did lots of background masking on my canvas.


One more close up of all the texture and beautiful kit embellishments!

Well that it for today. I will be back with lots more I created with this kit! Take care and happy scrapping J
