Welcome Everyone to the Flying Unicorn Blog Hop!!!
We are very happy and excited that you joined us today!

The Hop starts over at the Flying Unicorn Blog, so if you did not start there don't worry! Just follow this LINK and you will be hopping in no time, you won't want to miss a thing!

I want to share this layout I made for this blog hop, but I first want to share what inspired me to make it. I have always been a big fan of High Fashion, love runways and all that, so I was so happy when I drew inspiration from this image. This picture is from the new Prada Spring Summer 2012 Collection, oh how I LOVE IT! It's so gorgeous reminds me of the 1950's and the retro era oh my god so gorgeous. 
Take a look:

Look at her skirt, and those purses!! I'll take two please! lol

Here is the layout I made

OK so, I grabbed some inspiration from the beautiful yellow on the jacket and the beautiful purse, and grabbed some ideas from the pleats on her dress and made my own pleats with some muslin fabric. I used a paper from the October Afternoon Collection Thrift Shop which is available in the store. I love that paper so versatile, I enjoyed using some chalk glimmer mist in firefly on the paper and ribbons I made. I also used some White Studio Calico Mist my personal fave (Kory you too!),  I also used some amazing papers from Graphic 45 from their Communique Collection also in the store! Beautifully vintage papers so yummy! Added some handmade charms and some twine ( a must) and used some Tim Holtz Resist Alphas to spell out CHIC! Love being CHIC! Did you see those lovely retro silhouettes too? OH YA! Love them from the Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue collection also in the store!

All of us in the Creative Team are featuring fashion on our blogs in this hop. This is just a small preview of things to come in March!!! During our Haute Couture at the Unicorn Ritz Challenges!!! OH wait till you see what we have in store for you all!!! It will be FUN!

“The term "haute couture" is French. Haute means "high" or "elegant." Couture literally means "sewing," but has come to indicate the business of designing, creating, and selling custom-made, high fashion women's clothes.

I am so excited about the March Kit, it is going to be amazing and once again it will fly off the SHELVES!!! Sooo gorgeous! Just to get you excited a bit more here are some sneaks!

Focus On February Kit Of The Month "Always With Love"

Tuesday, February 7, 2012

Hello everyone, today I would like to share in detail the projects I made with the fabulous Flying Unicorn February Kit Of The Month, "Always With Love". Get ready for some close-up and picture overload! I have tons to share with you today, so sit back and relax with a nice cup of coffee!
My first layout was of course my monthly layout, I have this tradition where I always dedicate the first layout of the month to the actual month. February has got to be my favorite month after December of course. It is filled with love in the air!! The papers included in the kit "Sweet Nothings" Collection by KaiserCraft were perfect for this layout. I used the brown paper and went with a monochromatic look. The flowers are handmade by me, I used the lace as a border, which is also included in the kit, and of amazing quality I must add! Also that grape vine heart was soooo cute!!! I added it to the middle, where the heart is opening up and releasing cotton, pretty intense huh? Love the heart banner, it just popped into my head that there should be some sort of banner somewhere, me and my banner craze! Alda really thought of me in this kit, she included those yummmy woodgrain thickers! (THANK YOU) they were the perfect alphas for this layout, also included was that amazing key trinket, so amazing! I used a lot of Distress ink on this one, specifically Frayed Burlap by Tim Holtz.
Here are some close-ups:
My second layout I went with something more bright, I used the 7 Gypsies paper included in the kit as a background and placed another Kaiser paper on top and did some distressing and openings to reveal the lovely paper underneath. Also did some folds, I used the amazing rub-ons included in the kit too, perfect color, those chipboard hearts and wooden hearts are too included and were so wonderful to alter and work with. I used mostly Wild Honey Distress Ink on this one to achieve the color brilliance! Also used Zva Rhinestone Flourishes, available in the store.
Here is a closeup:
The next one has to be my favorite, I also used Sweet Nothings for this one!
This one was my favorite to make, I used 2 pieces of paper one Fabscraps for the background, wonderful paper, such high quality, I stamped it in the middle and then placed a Sweet Nothings paper over it, making this sort of middle opening with the stamped imagery. I then used the leftover paper to make those banners at the left, which I stamped with different stamps, I added the lovely pink flowers which were originally cream but I painted them with Cadillac Pink Glimmer Mist, available in the store, I also used some of the beautiful pink flowers included in the kit by Zva, they are so delicate and pretty! I also used some more of that lovely lace, ahh Gorgeous!
These are two of the cards I made with the kit as well:
For my Off The Page project I handpainted the entire KaiserCraft wooden DREAM Mini! I used vintage white paint, the reason was so I could stamp easier on it as well as use some of the lovely rubons included, here are the closeups!
I used a lot of the beautiful flowers, pieces of patterned paper, rubons, pearl strand, buttons which were all included in the kit, what a value! I also added some tulle to hold it together! Prima flowers and Kaiser mini flowers available in the Flying Unicorn Store as well!
Lastly I would like to share a new layout I made with this amazing kit, this layout was defenitely focused on the amazing trinkets, wooden pieces and greapevine heart included in the kit, I used another beautiful piece of Sweet Nothings Paper for this one as well. Gorgeous collection I must say!
Loved this kit and I am sure you will love it too! Hope you enjoyed and I hope I was able to inspire you today! Thank You so much for looking!

Haus Of W

Saturday, February 4, 2012

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is having an amazing weekend so far! I have changed the look of my blog once again! It took me a while, and I think I have perfected it now! Of course you might notice I also changed the title of my blog. Yes, my blog is now called Haus of W, why you might ask? Well Haus means Home in German, which is really a beautiful word to describe this blog, scrapbooking is really a wonderful home for me, and it makes me feel happy, relieves my stress, and it completes me. It is also home to you, my followers who I appreciate greatly, who take a minute out of your lives to visit me, thank you. Now, the W stands for, you guessed it, Warmy, who is my love of my life, he inspires me everyday, to create, to live, to imagine, and everything else. So there you have it. I hope you like the new look and I hope you continue to enjoy my blog, in this new chapter. I will be sharing some more projects I am working on soon, until then..
