Flying Unicorn January KOM Project

Back again today to share with you another project from the January KOM from Flying Unicorn which has all sold out.


The kit and addons came with lots of gorgeous chipboard frames a Melissa Frances frame and some clear frames, so I chose to centre my design around that.

Beautiful Petaloo flowers came in the kit as well.  The Prima flowers are from my own collection.

The background colour is some Inklingz "Blue My Mind"....such a stunning colour mixed with gold.

That's all for now...hope you are having a wonderful week :)

January Kit of the Month - Flying Unicorn

Hi everyone :)

Just sharing a couple of projects I did using the gorgeous January KOM from Flying Unicorn (which has all sold out) as well as their kit addons.

Now I haven't worked with a kit for sometime but oh boy this kit was amazing...what a great kit to start the year off.  Its jammed packed with loads of mixed media products and feel so lucky to have a chance to play with products I probably wouldn't normally have a chance to.


I loved the Prima Heart Pin Wheel Stencil...was so cool to use. I have also used some Prima Art Sugar in soft pink...oh so yummy and 13 Arts Pastel Turquoise mist.

My next project is a couple of mini canvas's.  Lots of details on these which you cannot see in the photos.  I have used the Prima Pearl Glass Glitter, Art Sugar, Wax Crayons and 13 Arts mists.

Hope you enjoyed my projects.  I will have another scrapbook layout to share with you all soon.

Till next time :)

January Design Team Project for Blue Fern


I am so excited to share with you my very first projects as a designer for Blue Fern Studios. I had so much fun and really enjoyed putting these together.

For this layout I used the Ombre Dreams: Gingers Dreams paper for my background.

I have used a couple of pieces of Graduated these! I have tucked them in an around my layers behind my photo and covered them with mist and paint. The stunning La Plum chipboard piece was lightly painted and then dipped in glitter.

I have also used a piece from the Nested Circle pack, cut it in half and placed at the top and bottom sides of my layout.

Paper: Ombre Dreams: Ginger Dreams & Dream Cards
Chipboard: Graduated Circles, Nested Circle, La Plume

For this layout I was drawn to the gorgeous vintage background of the Meadows of Time paper in the Sanctuary Collection.  But in my usual style I brightened things up!

I cut the bottom section off and turned it over to reveal the beautiful flower pattern that was on the reverse side.  I have used the Small Circle Flower Flourish as well as one of the Corner Flourish.  Down the bottom edge of my layout I have included one of the Arrow Words "Love This".

Paper: Sanctuary Collection - Meadows of Time, Bountiful
Chipboard: Arrow Word, Small Circle Flower Flourish, Corner Flourish

Thank you so much for visiting, I hope you enjoyed my projects...!

Till next time :)

Here is my example...


I have used some paper from the new and gorgeous Sanctuary range and teamed it up with using the Notebook Edges chipboard, the word Laughter from the Laughter Happy Smile pack and a beautiful Tattered Butterfly. All chipboard pieces have been given a coat of Gesso and them painted lightly with some mist.
