Catch up on Flying Unicorn DT Projects

WOW has it been that long since I have last blogged!! 

Sorry my friends...I just have had so much going on in my everyday life that blogging has taken a backwards step.  Anyway I know we have all been there at some point in our lives and having a young family keeps me very busy.

So I have a bit of catching up to do...first of all lets start with some Flying Unicorn Design Team Projects. 

This was part of the April KOM.  This cute metal watering can just begged to be jazzed up a little especially with my favourite!  It now sits just lovely on my craft desk holding all my paint brushes.

Next we move along to a layout I created using the May KOM.

Lots of gorgeous 13 Arts papers and art mediums :))

And just one more for today...
Created using the June KOM..

Lots more gorgeous 13 Arts papers and mediums...yum yum! :))

Not sure if I have any more readers out there but if you do...THANK YOU SO MUCH

I have a couple of more projects to share with you that I created using the Flying Unicorn KOM.


Just loved the beautiful turquoise and blue's that came in this kit...perfect for my little men :) I have added some Prima flowers to this layout there weren't part of the kit.

And a card I made.  We are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary today so I made this card for my wonderful husband.

Flying Unicorn April KOM Projects

Hi there everyone,

Just have a couple of projects to share with you that I created using the April KOM from Flying Unicorn. I have also created a little tutorial on how I created the background for this layout. Please see the Flying Unicorn blog for all those details :)


Everything on this layout was included in the KOM as well as bits from the add ons. I absolutely loved the 2 different Lindy's Stamp Gang mists were included.

So different for me to create something with these colour tones but I loved how it turned out.

And here is a cute card I made from bits of the Small Art Big Passion kit.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a great week!

April Blue Fern Studio Projects

Hi everyone :)

I have two new projects to share with you today using lots of gorgeous Blue Fern Studios products.

For my 1st layout I have chosen to use some Ombre Dreams so gorgeous! I have used Charlotte's Dream as the background paper with the Calling Cards as my layers.

"Baby Blues"

I have used the Roman Clock Set - Small and teamed it up with the gorgeous Tattered Butterlies and the word Baby from the Baby Words Set.

I have used lots of mists and inks to blend and tone my chipboard peices in to the colours of my photo and papers.

Products Used:
Paper: Omber Dreams - Charlotte's Dreams & Calling Cards
Chipboard: Roman Clock Set - Small, Tattered Butterflies, Baby

My 2nd project I decided to start with a plain white sheet of cardstock as I wanted to use the Number Grid - Large to be the focus of my layout.


Paper layers behind the photo are from the Sanctuary Collection.  I love that saying that is found on one of the Calling Cards.

I love these peices of chipboard from the Picture Perfect Collection..they are perfect for a fun layout.  I have again used many mists and inks with water to push the colour around on the chipboard.  

Products Used:
Paper: Sanctuary Collection
Chipboard: Number Grid - Large, Smile, Picture Perfect, Negatives from the Jumbo Rings Panel

Hope you enjoyed my projects...
See you next month and happy scrapping!

April Sketch for Blue Fern Studios

Hi and Happy 1st Day of April!!!

Back with you today to share my DT project using the Blue Fern Studios April Sketch.

Here is the much room for interpretation.

Any my layout...using the Ombre Dreams paper collection I created this pastel layout.

Using the Jumbo Rings Panel in my background I layered up some Bohemian Flowers an Arrow from the Directions set and pieces from the Broken Rings set.

I have used Love from the Chunky Words set as part of my title.  All my chipboard pieces are painted in Gesso first and I have added lots of shimmerz, mists and Glimmer Glaze colours which a fine paint brush.

Love the chipboard pieces that says "Click"...perfect to add to a fun layout.  This is from the Picture Perfect set.  

I have also added some stamping to my background to add some interest.  I used a background stamp in the Forever Stamp Collection.

Going to be offline for a bit over the Easter break.  Wishing you all a wonderful long weekend.

Be back with lots more to share :)
Till next time
