Scrap Cake Mini Album and Sneak Peeks for August kit!

Hi Scrappers!

Well it's almost time for our Mini Album Swap to come to a close over at Flying Unicorn!

I have LOVED hosting this swap and making all these minis!! You should see the ones I've received so far...just gorgeous! What is so great about a swap is that you can see for yourself all the work someone puts into their's a reflection of them..their personality and each was is so unique and beautiful.

So this one was my last one: the "Unique Shaped Mini". I used the new collection from The ScrapCake.."The Bright Side of Life" which is available at the Flying Unicorn Store. I don't think alot of American stores have it, but Alda has it in stock and it's going get yours before it's gone!! it's time for a look at the mini:

This was alot of fun to make as the paper collection is just SO gorgeous!!

If you love challenges, hop over to our Flying Unicorn Forum!! New challenges start August 1st as does the reveal of the August kit!! The August kit has an AMAZING Off the Page are a few sneak peeks!

Well thanks for taking the time to peek thru my long post today!!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!! And don't forget to stop back by on August 1st to see the kit reveal!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

The Scrap Cake "The Bright Side of Life Collection"

When Alda first uploaded the new Scrap Cake collection in the store, my jaw dropped and I started drooling all over my keyboard. I had to have some of that paper!! The last collection I worked with from The Scrap Cake was "Spring Awakening" and I loved the quality of the paper....and this collection is just as nice!

I used a picture of my darling grandson on his first merry go round. I'm lucky that he's still so little that I can use flowers for his I have a feeling that when he's older he's not going to like that.
Most of the flowers are from Prima and Flying Unicorn. I love Alda's flowers..Click HERE  to see some..they're amazing! The chipboard is Imaginarium and also from the Flying Unicorn Store. I also mixed a little Websters trim in there too.

I used Lisa Gregory's circle punch tutorial  to add the design around the center circle. Very simple to do..check it out if  you get a chance. I also used some of her butterflies she makes for Swirlydoos which I think you can find on her blog. Here are some close ups:

Thanks so much for stopping by!! I hope to see you at the Flying Forum for some fun challenges!! Our next challenge group will start in August, but there is still time to join in some!! So come and see us!!

Till next time..happy scrappin!!

GCD Studios: Creative Team Work

Hey scrapping friends!

Feels like forever since I've been able to scrap and post something! Work has been crazy busy so I took Sunday to try catch up on some scrapping projects.

I did this layout using the GCD Studios collection by Donna Salazar found at the Flying Unicorn store. This layout is my lift of the most talented Joc (Jeni's) layout "She" which you can see HERE in her gallery at Hers is totally amazing and creative and I really wanted to try all those creative ideas and details she did on it. Please check it out and give her some gallery love!
The thing about trying to lift someone's layout or even get inspiration from it, is that you never have the same stuff to work with so you have to use what you have.

I used different stamps, ink colors, flowers and chippies for this. Most of the products are from Flying Unicorn with the exception of one of the small plum Prima Flowers and letters which were from a Swirlydoos kit and the Tim Holtz Grungeboard wings which I had in my stash. I used some Glimmer Glam on the small Flying Unicorn roses to match my paper better.

Here are some close ups:

I have been uber excited to see all the participants in our challenges and swaps in the Flying Forum!! Do join us if you have a chance!! It's super fun and such a great group..we'd love to have you pop over and say hello!! Great prizes to be won in our team hosted challenges too!!

On a side note, the CT team received their August Kit from Flying Unicorn and let me tell you it ROCKS! I can't give any details but trust me...dont' let this one pass you by! They've been selling out on the 2nd day of the reveal! The "Off the Page Project" for August is simply amazing!!

Till next time, Happy Scrappin!!

Hey scrappers!

I'm just sharing one of the mini's I doing for the Mini Album Swap @ Flying Unicorn. This is my 6x6 style and I used Websters paper to make it, along with some Flying Unicorn flowers, Prima, Timmy inks..and other goodies.

We have three mini swap groups..Paper Bag, 6x6 and Unique Shaped. I've done 2 I just need to do one more!

New GCD Studios: CT work for Flying Unicorn

Hello scrappers!

Well the Flying Unicorn Blog Hop was a big success and I hope you got to be a part of it and are entering the drawing for the Grand Prize!! A HUGE thank you to all of you for not only your sweet comments, but just being a part of Flying Unicorn!! We love having you!

I had mentioned before that once I saw Alda had the new GCD Studios papers from Donna Salazar in the store, I just had to get my hands on some!! I LOVE this's gorgeous..and the quality is so nice! Here is my first layout I've done with it.
The paper is just so beautiful you really don't need to do much with it. I think "Paper Theatre" is my favorite so far!

I think I'll be making a  mini album for my Mini Album Swap in the Flying Forum using this line..I'll post it when I'm done. If you have used this line, I would love to see your creations!! Please share if you get a chance!!

Stay creative and till next time..Happy Scrappin!
