One Last Christmas Card Before Christmas

Saturday, December 24, 2011

I hope everyone is ready!
Christmas is tomorrow! Or in a few hours if some of you stay up late and wait for Santa of course ;-)
I just wanted to share one last card I made for my co-worker who is an absolute sweetheart, she really makes work so much fun. I did some more of the background embossing and used some of the yummy Seasonal Distress Ink Iced Spruce I got from the Flying Unicorn Store, check it out.

Really love the contrast of the kraft paper against the carstock with the embossing, beautiful, I also added some of that yummy Pink Paislee tinsel trim Iv'e been hoarding forever! I don't want to finish it up its so pretty!! 

Thank You for stopping by today, I hope you are ready for tomorrow, it will be a wonderful day! 
Catch you guys a little later!

Products Used: Tim Holtz Seasonal Distress Ink Iced Spruce; Available at the Flying Unicorn Store, My Mind's Eye Lost&Found Christmas; Die Cut, Stamps, Pink Paislee Parisian Anthology Chipboard Butterfly, Tinsel  Trim, Prima Flower, Prima Button, Handmade Pin.

Loving that paper and the beautiful flowers! Gorgeous!

Here is one I made for our Secret Santa Exchange Party over at Flying Unicorn which was so much fun!

Beautiful paper, I cannot get over it, so gorgeous! Of course all of the beautiful Riddersholm paper is available at the Flying Unicorn Store Exclusively, and I must say, you need to get some, pictures do not do it justice!

Anniversary Card

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Hello everyone!!! It's been a busy week for me, the Holiday rush is at full swing and its getting busier and busier as we approach Christmas! Love this time of year because everyone is shopping for their loved ones, you can feel the love in the air. I also love it because it's me and hubby's anniversary! Our anniversary was this Tuesday and we had an amazing evening, went to dinner, took some pictures, it was all so nice. 4 years of being together seems like so long but to me it has been like a blink of an eye. Hard to explain, yes, but it simply means that I am happy and I am where I belong at the moment! Of course one cannot be a scrapbooker if one does not craft something for this speciall occasion, so I made hubby a card. I really enjoyed making this one because I love that embossing and inking technique, its so awesome and gives it a real professional look! Take a look:

I am loving those Pink Paislee chip pieces from their Parisian Anthology collection, they are simply to die for! Really love that ink from Tim Holtz, Iced Spruce from the seasonal distress collection it's perfect for Winter cards or to add a little gray to any project!

Thank You for stopping by and I hope you are getting craft and getting your Christmas shopping done this weekend! We still have tons of tutorials coming and you can still play along at Santa's Workshop over at the Flying Unicorn forums! Click HERE!

Love, Frank

First Annual Silent Auction

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

Please join us November 26th through November 28th for Flying Unicorn’s First Annual Silent Auction of all things scrapbook, all from the private stashes of the Flying Unicorn Creative Team. All proceeds from the auction will go to benefit Women in Distress. Some of us are putting together kits, some of us are destashing. There’s bound to be something you’ll want; place your bid, and it might be yours. Bids will be accepted until midnight November 28th and auction winners will be notified the next day.
As the month draws to a close, we want to thank all of you who posted your lovely work in the gallery, sent in your donations and made purchases in the store. We met our goal of 1,000 uploads to the gallery on November 16th, thereby earning a $1,000 donation from the Flying Unicorn store to Women in Distress. Remember that throughout November 5% of all sales will be donated to Women in Distress.
The Silent Auction is our last fundraiser for Women in Distress this year; we hope you’ll help us help our sisters who have suffered so much by placing a bid. You can peruse the items up for auction by visiting here:
