Flying Unicorn Dec Kit of the Month Part 1

HI everyone! Today I have a layout to share that I have made with the Flying Unicorn Dec Kit of the Month…Magic! My grandson just had his 1st birthday and this layout features that lil cutie pie hehe!

I have used the Pink Paislee Color Wash Collection. I love the soft colors as it allows you to do pretty much do what ever you want on the background.  

The kit comes with some fun tags and add ons! Love these cut out tags and the cute frames for the photos!

The background masking is done with a combo of some Molding Paste, the Shimmerz Spritz and Shimmerz Dimentionz in the kit. I finished it off with those gorgeous Prima flowers in the flower add on.

Each month our kits feature an Off the Page project and this months is a shadow box. I decided to make a gift for a friend and filled mine with candles.


I used some Marion Smith Designs papers and covered the box first.

I applied some Martha Stewart Crackle to the frame on top…love the crackle with this stuff and Alda is bringing it into the store very soon! The flowers are a combo of Prima and Petaloo’s and that amazing key is a Flying Unicorn Adornment!

One more close up.

Well that it for today. Head on over to the Flying Unicorn store and grab your kit today!  ...take care and happy scrapping J

Live & Smile Prima BAP

HI everyone! I have been working on this layout off and on all week. I am cleaning like crazy here to get ready for the holidays but when I take breaks I have scrapped a wee bit J Todays layout is for the November Prima BAP. I have used Prima Lifetime Collection, a bit of scraps from Prima’s older Sunrise Sunset Collection and lots of Shimmerz goodies in the background. My grand babies and yes I have scrapped this once before, but that is the beauty of the holidays…I can scrap them all 2-3 times as they are all gifts for my kids.

The flowers are all from Prima. The cute buttons are from the Lifetime Collection and I added in a few Prima Mechanical metals. I have added drips of Shimmerz paints in Golden Wheat, Bubble Gum and Key Lime.

Have you tried the new Dimentionz from Shimmerz yet? It is paint in a bottle with a nozzle tip…FUN! I have finished all the chippys with some!

Ok that is it for today…make sure to pop on by the FlyingUnicorn store and check out all the new stuff being loaded everyday!  Have a great week! Take care and happy scrapping!

Getting ready for the Holiday!

HI everyone! Well I am getting my house ready for the Holidays and decided to alter a Sleigh that I bought! It is quite big, about 18 inches or so. I went to my local floral shop and picked up a few holiday sprays and it started.

I added some May Arts trims and Prima flowers from the Flying Unicorn Store to finish it all off. This is the front of the sleigh.

Look at the cutie pie lil ceramic bird…he goes perfectly in there surrounded by the lovely Prima flowers.

One more close up!  I did not want to overload it but kept it quite simple.

ART Mixed Media Canvas **Shimmerz**

Hi Everyone! I love to get creative with a canvas creation now and then and I made this one for a special friend. I was definitely inspired by our own Shimmerz DT Miranda’s amazing canvas work but also added lots of my own touches here and there to it. It has lots of background work with yummy Shimmerz products! This is a great project to use up bits and pieces of trims, flowers and even some old hardware that you have laying around!

First I added all the pieces to my canvas and painted it with gesso. I applied layers of Treasured Hymn and Cotton Candy Spritz.

After that was heat set I added some Hot Fudge Vibez and let it drip and move around as I heat set it.

I finished it off with a few more trims.

Don’t forget about this months challenge to use your Shimmerz and tell us what you are thankful for!  Share it on our Facebook page to qualify for this months prize!

On your next Shimmerz order, mention my name (or any Shimmerz Designer) and your favourite Dimensionz (in the notes to merchant) and Stacey will send you a one FREE!!!! Swing on by our Facebook page for more inspiration. Take care and happy Scrapping!
