Flying Unicorn Shimmer & Shine

Happy Friday! The Flying Unicorn had their first blog hop over the 4th of July weekend and WOW...what inspiring projects. If you're haven't been over to the Flying Unicorn store, you must check it out. Alda has a wonderful selection in her store. She offers monthly scrapbooking kits, which include an "off the page" project. I found some time to play with my June kit and this chipboard album, exclusive to the Flying Unicorn, was included in the kit. Also in my kit were these fabulous Webster's Pages from their Ladies and Gents line. Here's a close-up of the embellishments.

I made the white flower and white rose bud using some Melissa Frances crepe paper with some stickles on the edges for some added shimmer. The white resin ornate corner, pearls and the chandelier drops are also from Melissa Frances. Some Webster's Bloomers, black leaf and ticket were also used. That beautiful cameo button was also included in my kit.

I used the postcard stamp from Whimsy Stamps and ripped it in half. Sizzix postage frame and Tim Holtz Baroque and Mini Baroque dies. The flower is from Maya Road.

I added some Maya Road organza rose ribbon to the top. Some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

The crochet ribbon on this page was also included in my Flying Unicorn kit.

A Flourish die from Sizzix and another Webster's Pages ticket on this page.

I just got my July Kit yesterday in the mail and can't wait to get playing. It has some really great products I've never tried before. Hopefully I'll get some time to play this weekend.

Thanks for stopping by. Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Your album for the Flying Unicorn blog hop is absolutely gorgeous. How do you feel about giving long distance tutorials? I love this style of crafting, but when I try it myself, it never seems to look the way I want. I just got my July kit from Flying unicorn and am trying to figure out what I want to do. I entered a project in the blog hop and I'm please with the results, but would really love to learn how to craft like you and the CT at the Flying U. Good luck on the drawing (10 more minutes to go!!!) :-)
