JOY - Creative Embellishments and Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! It is time for a new monthly challenge from Creative Embellishments! The twist for this months inspiration picture is to use a stencil or mask on your project.
Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year…I adore all the holiday decorations,  lights, and of course that holiday baking…yummy!!! This months challenge is super fun and gave me a chance to create a layout of my grandson that I will display over the holidays…he is just a cutie pie! I have used my Flying Unicorn Dec kit which includes lots of Creative Embellishments chippys this month!
Lots of masking in the background along with the Grunge Snowflake Stamp…just LOVE this stamp.
The photo is framed with the new Snowflake Frame 2. The frame is finished with some Shimmerz. I have fun fussy cutting with the kit papers.


Make sure to share all of your creations on our Facebook page. Take care and happy Scrapping!


Holiday Goodies with the Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone! It is reveal day for the Flying Unicorn December Your Passion Your Art Kits! Each month the main kit comes with a fun Off the Page project to complete…this months is a wooden sleigh!

I had so much fun finished this sleigh. First I used some gesso to cover it all..then layers and layers of yummy Shimmerz paints and mists. Here you can see the fabulous texture of the sleigh after it dried. I added some masking with some Shimmerz Dazzlerz and a few Creative Embellishments snowflakes to finish it off.

Once the pine cones and trims were added I finished everything off with some dabs of Aleene’s Glitter Snow from the Flying Unicorn store.

I also have a card and tag to share featuring two of my grandkids…I will adorn their mom’s presents with them!

I fussy cut the photos as well as some pieces from the 13 ARTS papers in the kit.

The tag base is some packaging the kit flowers came in. Both feature one of the many masks and gorgeous embellishments in the kits.

Well that it for today…I have more to share with the kit in the next few days!  Take care and happy scrapping J

Happy Thanksgiving BAP with the Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all my US friends out there!  While the boys in the house are watching some football on TV, grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and enjoy a Build a Page tutorial featuring the NEW 7 DOTS Thoughts Keeper collection and lots of other goodies from the Flying Unicorn store. Ok lets get started!

Select your two pieces of paper to use…trim one down to 11 x 11 and keep those cut off pieces for later on.

I took a couple of punches and did around the top sheet of paper. After that was done I inked the edges of both with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink.

Next I applied some gesso to an old brick stamp in my collection and did some stamping with the gesso.

Have you seen the NEW yummy Shimmerz Coloringz in the store….the new colors are all so amazing! Lets use a couple and add some color to this background! Do not be scared..apply that mist now! This is going to add some color behind where the photo and embellishments are in the end. Bits of color peeking out.

13 ARTS Mask and some Golden Molding paste. Just adding more layers to that background.

Remember those strips of paper from step one…tear those and add down the center of the page now. STAMPING TIME!!!!! Yippee…grab those favourite stamps out and lets get at it. I just love how you can add your own pattern to the paper. Look at those leaves I stamped on the two corners…love it!

Distress my photo with the Prima tool and mount it on some cardboard. Cutting the cardboard smaller will leave room around the edges under the photo for tucking in embellishments.

I go to thrift stores and buy up lace doilies…and yes I cut them up and use them on my creations. If you do not have any…tuck some lace in under your top sheet like in my corners.

SNACK TIME! Weeeee gotta love cheezies. Wash those hand after as you do not want orange finger prints on your creation hehe.


I added some May Art Trim down the center of the page.

This collection comes with a sheet of fun pieces to use on your creations…I tore out a couple to use.

Add your photo and the torn collection pieces.

Get out those embellishments…Petaloo flowers, Bo Bunny gems, Creative Embellishments chippys and a lovely Flying Unicorn adornment.

Add all of your embellishments with the Beacons glue..this glue is so amazing…I have stopped using a glue gun, not only did I burn myself a lot but I found that pieces fell off all the time. The Beacons glue allows you to move things around for a minute and once it is there for good.  My next step involves ShimmerzInklingz!

Shimmerz Inklingz…..these are little pots of shimmering transparent paint. They are hard and activated with water…add some sprays of water and let sit for a few seconds…stir it up with a paintbrush…you can add as much water as you like! I like to mix to a creamy consistency. Stir it up and flick that paintbrush on your creation to add some little drops of shimmering color! Cover up that photo so you do not get any on it J

Here you can see how the Shimmerz Inklingz are like molten shinning color on your page. Check them out in the store…the little pods are so inexpensive and really they will last you for months! LOVE that adornment too!

Few more close-ups. I hope you like my BAP…have fun!
