A Closer Look At The Flying Unicorn March Kit

Monday, March 5, 2012

Happy Monday Everyone!!!
Hope everyone had an amazing weekend and had some crafty time!! I am happy to share the projects I made with the March Kit Of The Month "Putting It On The Ritz" The included papers, embellishments and flowers are simply amazing, and I have to say this kit was the best one yet, so sit back and relax because this post will be picture heavy!!
This is my first layout I made for this kit, I gotta say my favorite papers in the kit were the Inkido papers, they were perfectly vintage, cream colored, simple perfection, it really allows for some amazing stamping too.  For this layout I wanted to keep a neutral palette, so I went with a cream color,  used some Glimmer Chalk Mist in French Vanilla available in the Flying Unicorn Store, the little angel stamp is a La Blanche stamp which has a high amount of detail, these stamps are also availabe in the store. Here are some close ups:
Love the Pink Paislee Chippies too, the Alphas are just amazing!!! Beautiful to alter and distress, and what about that Penny Farthing OMG! My second favorite layout is the next one, I had a little moustache photo shoot with the dh, lol had so much fun with these pictures take a look
I also tried to keep the color scheme the same, I LOVE this one, it has got to be my favorite, I simply love how all of the embellishments work together, the Pink Paislee dress form chip which I distressed and inked, as well as that mistables flower part of the kit add-ons! The felt flower was amazing, and I loved working with it, I added a bit of gold to keep with the color. A lot of people have asked me what the chair embellishment is, is it a stamp? an acetate? well, its a little technique I learned at CHA from the owner of La Blanche stamps, she is amazing and I will have a tutorial on that later, it is made from UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Powder) and stamping, cool huh? Here are some closeups
Lovely, now the next layout was really fun to make, love the ripped center with the butterfly Inkido paper, soooo pretty, and it really allowed for the effect that these butterflies are playing in the middle of the paper pulling apart, neat huh?
There is another one of those moustache images, so fun! Love the little cherub on the side so cute, and oh. dont you love that top piece of paper, its also from the kit, amazingness!
The next one was another fun one, love the floral feel to it, and the brown earthy tones on it as well, the papers again in the kit are simply perfection!
The balloon is so adorable, I used some perfect pearls around the edge to create a nice border effect, perfect pearls can be found in the store, the flowers included in the kit were amazing to use, also the patterned felt was so much fun, I made some leaves and added them to the side, so pretty!
Those Pink Paislee chippies are sooo gorgeous!
The next one was so much fun too, I gotta love all the pink I used, I couldnt resist!!! There is a beautiful piece of pink patterned paper included and I just had to use it!
So pefectly vintage and pretty, and do you see those frames on the left? Yes included, and yes delicious! LOVE, I also love the leaves, I hand painted them pink and oh aren't they lovely? Those are also in the kit!
Now on to a card! I have to say this card was a fave for me! Loved making it, and the paper and Eiffel Tower piece I used from the kit was perfect for it!
Isn't the paper just wonderful? GORG! Now on to some Off The Page Goodness, the dressform was the first thing I made with this kit, I mean who could resist? It's just asking to be worked on~! I love how mine turned out, kinda looks like a chic wedding dress!
Love the pearls, trim, and flowers, I even made her a little scarf out of some of the tulle included!! Isn't she wonderful?
I also made a little purse, I had fun making this one, its so cute and perfect, and I love it! Take a look!
Well those are all of my projects, hope you enjoyed reading this long post, and I hope I inspired you today! Love the fashion challenges going on at the forums right now and I hope you can join us!
