Graphic 45 Christmas Emporium

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

I am a giant Graphic 45 fanatic. Love all of their products and releases, so when I found out that our very own Flying Unicorn Store got the latest collection, Christmas Emporium I was blown away. Flying Unicorn is one of the first to carry this wonderful collection which is simply gorgeous. Christmas is only 3 months away!!!! Not a lot of time, so this comes in at a perfect time to start making Christmas Cards, tags, or layouts to send to friends and family. Here is a sneak peek at the collection, head on to the store to view all of it:




I don't know about you, but these are beautiful sneaks!!! If you would like to purchase this collection, hop on over to the Flying Unicorn Store before its gone!!! There is still one day left if you have not participated in the challenges!!! The forums are always filled with inspiration and swaps, we have a new ATC Card swap in the works come on by!

Thanks for stopping by today!!!

Hi everyone, hope everyone is doing well. Stopping by today to share with you all a new paper collection by Authentique called Journey, it's blue and calm colors are so gorgeous and they really are a must in everyone's collection. I was given the opportunity to work with this fabulous paper and all I can say is I love it. It is such nice thick textured paper, it has beautiful designs (it even smells good too lol), the Journey collection as well as the Uncommon collection are both available at the Flying Unicorn Store, for this weekend only you can take 20% off the paper and the Authentique products, just enter "August" for the Journey and Uncommon collections. Here are a couple of images of my work with this paper:







The quality on this paper is phenomenal, you can really see it, also the die cuts I used were so beautiful. Hurry in to the Flying Unicorn Store and grab yours before they run out, and don't forget about your 20% discount as well!! The forums are raving about the sneak peeks of the Design Team for the September Kit of the Month " A Joy To Remember" be sure to stop by and check those out, I leave you with two new ones of mine.

Stick Pins!

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Hello my crafty friends, I know I've been away for a bit, I have been away creating for the September Issue of Enchanting Creations which will be awesome! I did get a chance to experiment with stick pins though yesterday, I always buy mine pre-made, pretty simple, but we have an awesome swap going on at the Flying Unicorn Forums, and it involves stick pins! Now I am no expert, I am fairly new to this ( hubby wasnt so thrilled of me wanting to try a new craft lol) I went to my local craft store picked up some beads and this is what I made, I am still playing with them, I am sure I will get better:




Looking fab right? I am still experimenting, will keep you guys updated on that, meanwhile visit the amazing forums and check out the challenges we have going on there, I have a Yarn challenge and it would be awesome if you guys submitted a project to my challenge, there is an awesome RAK to be won, provided by the Flying Unicorn Store!
