On my next layout I wanted to add some more drama to my project and the black flourish was perfect!

used the fabulous black flourish from Zva, Classic papers from Fabscraps, IR-RESIST-IBLE Alphas from tattered angels and red velvet glimmer mist available at the Flying Unicorn store

Melissa Francis - 5th Ave

Hi everyone! This week at the Flying Unicorn we are featuring the fantastic Melissa Francis!!!

This is what I created....

This is a Kaiser Dress form that I used the Melissa Francis papers to create an apron. And I am usually pretty practical so I hot glued a clothes pin to hold a recipe card when I am cooking!

Melissa Francis is not just for heritage and femine projects!

Hope you enjoyed my post and have a wonderful day!

Getting Fancy with Fancy Pants!

This week I had the pleasure to work with Fancy Pants Lilac house. just becasue it has a flowery name does not mean it is for feminine projects only! I also used the mistables ribbon and the mistables alphas and the tattered leather glimmer mist . To add a little dimension I outlined the wood stars and dragonfly from my stash with liquid pearls and the fabulous mistables ribbon

In the second layout I used the more femine papers from the lilac house line. I also used the Flying Unicorn flowers and layered the mistables ribbon that I sprayed with glimmer mist as well as the handmade flowers.

Our March Guest CT at the Unicorn

This month we get to work with the amazingly talented Jeni
you HAVE to check out her blog it is full of wonderful masterpieces ...she is uber talented!

here is what she had to say;

Hi I'm Jeni. I'm thrilled to be a part of such a diversely talented group of scrappers working with the Creative Team and Members of Flying Unicorn. I'm an Aussie with a Canadian dh, so we get to spend time in two beautiful countries, Australia and Canada. We have twins, a boy and girl who are growing up way too fast for me and my camera, and a dog Buddy.
Inspired by my Grandma's talent for crafts, I've always loved to create in some form or another. I've been a scrapbooker forever,lol. Even as a child I would take photos and write stories about them. I've been scrapbooking as we know it today for about 15 years. Although in the early days all we had were stickers! My style has changed over that time and with so many influences and fabulous products. Today, I guess I have two distinctly different styles Storybook/whimsical style usually in 3d, where I love to extend the photo and create a scene. I also like to create in a Shabby/arty/, sometimes messy kind of style. lol.
I been lucky to have had many opportunities in scrapbooking. For the past 5 yrs I've been a design team member on the Colour Team for Scrapbook Creations. I've authored regular features and three year long series of published articles, "What's Your Style?"and "Scrapping with the Stars" (astrology and scrapping). More recently, "Reality Bites" (scrapping about real life issues).
I've been published in the Australian magazines Scrapbook Creations, Scrapbooking Memories and For Keeps. Internationally in Canadian Scrapbooker, Memory Makers, and Creating Keepsakes. I was also a tutor at the Australian Scrapbooking Convention. I've been on a few teams over the years, recently, in 2010, Dusty Attic and in 2011, My Creative Scrapbook.
I'm a Midwife and Teacher by professions when I'm not scrapping. I'd like to say I'm a domestic engineer, but I'm not really all that domesticated...I'd rather be scrapping!
I'm so pleased for the opportunity to share my creations with you.

Some more Kaiser lovin' at the Flying Unicorn

I really enjoy working with Kasier products....This time I worked with the incredible 'Chapter one' line.

With this layout I cut the shaped paper, named experience in half, and layered smaller piece over. I also used the Belief paper as a photo mat...

I love the quote - 'Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things ~ Robert Brault

I also inked the laser cut fence in the black and used some liquid pearls as accents. The flowers were made out of the leftover papers!

here are some close ups

On my next layout I wanted to add a little bit of dimension and distressing so I got the papers wet then rolled them up in a ball, unrolled them, flattened them a bit and dried them with my air gun.

and here is a close up,

I also created an altered project - an altered photo display

here are a few close ups

This was super easy to create...

1) I used two pages from the Kasier album

2) I cut my paper to fit and punched the holes in the top

3) I created two layouts using the paper I cut, and added some embellishments, and glued them onto the two Kaiser chipboard pages

4) I added binder rings

5) To make it so the photo display does not fall and flatten I cut two pieces of lace to 3" and hot glued one end the front and one to the back

6) to cover the glued edge I made a bow and glued it on

7) I tied ribbon and lace to the binder rings!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
