My Name is Connie Riddersholm, I live in Denmark and am married to my soul mate Henning. I am the owner of Riddersholm Design which was founded in 2010. It all started with a few Digital backgrounds and from there digital scrapbook kits. I was asked to make these as Paper sheets, so I tried it. My company is small, and I produce all my papers in Denmark and they are made with consideration of the environment. All designs are made by me, I have a grunged, vintage mixed style that I have heard is Riddersholm style :o)
I hold on to earth tones, mixed with any kind of bluish. I also like peach, pink and red. When I design Christmas collections it has to be old fashioned, real Christmas colors like red, green and brown. I love the Nordic style.
Most of my spare time I spend with my lovely German shepherd dogs, Lucas and Noah. Both are active competition dogs. We do working dog IPO like protection work, tracking and obedience. In 2013 I was represented as one of the Danish participant in The European Champions ships in Tracking.
I also breed New Forest ponies.
Today I want to share with you my latest layout for 13arts.I have used the Timeless collection once again!! Yes I know... I just cannot get enough. I LOVE IT!
I also used some 13arts mixed media products here which I will detail below.
Remember all 13arts products are available at the Flying Unicorn HERE
"Once Upon A...Time"
So I will say the truth.. I was really aiming for a monochromatic look here. But nah.. it didnt happen. I really needed some colour in there and the Ultramarine blue from `13arts is GORGEOUS!!!
I used some new 13arts products in my background..,Pastel Black mist, Pearl Silver and Pearl White mists together with some more Ultramarine.
Once I created my texture with a Crafters Workshop and 13arts Modelling Paste on my background, I waited for it to dry and apply the Black Mist and Silver and White mists to the background over the texture.
Peeking under the simply beautiful handmade flowers by 13arts, is a few interesting bits.. the branch chipboard piece is from the Timeless collection as well. I also used the bling strip which is available at the 13arts store.
The chipboard title is also from the Timeless collection. I simply painted that with 13arts Gesso and coloured it lightly with the Ultramarine mist.
You can see some White and some Silver mist that I applied over the bumps there. I applied it with a brush.
I also cut out some clock images from one of the Timeless papers and used some 13arts Black Ink to create splatters.
I coloured the larger circles with 13arts Black Mist and a brush.,
Paper collection: 13 arts Timeless

It's Wednesday! And, that means another edition of What You Can Do Wednesday. Today, I'm sharing a petal box tutorial.
Jennifer Snyder here today. I adore all the Julie Nutting Stamps, This is a piece I created back in January for the Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show (CHA) to showcase the Doll Stamps as well as Jodie Lee's Princess Collection. Both dolls and Princess Collection are available in the Unicorn Store here. I thought this would be a great piece to re-visit since I am currently running a challenge featuring doll stamps and handmade dolls of all types in the Challenge Forum. You can join the fun here.
From the moment I saw the Princess collection by Jodie Lee, I was hooked. I needed to create some kind of Princess piece, something, not sure what. Then I laid eyes on Julie Nutting's doll stamp and an idea flooded into my head.
As a child I loved paper dolls. It was my favorite gift for many years. I'd design my own clothing and cut them out. Truthfully, I am no clothes designer but I sure had hours and hours of busy cut work back then. It's no wonder I still love paper and can still spend hours cutting it.
So doll clothes it is! Though this time I had expert help from Julie Nutting and Jodie Lee. It's fun to indulge this part of my life again with doll clothes. I created a doll closet for her wardrobe , a Doll Armoire. I used an old necklace closet/jewelry closet that I found at a thrift store and altered it. For the ridiculously fun price of $4.99, this closet had to come home with me and get a grand makeover, Prima style.
I made the clothes hangers from the Prima wire thread. Cool stuff and I can see many doll dresses in my future all hung neatly in this darling little closet.
You can see the Shabby Chic Treasures by Ingvild Bolme tucked behind my Princess. It's a sweet little settee love seat for when my princess needs to rest a spell. My closet door pulls are also from Ingvild Bolme.
My beautiful princess dress was made from the ATC cards from the Prima Princess collection. Some of the ATC cards are very ornate so I took advantage of them to gussy up her dress.
Here is a close up of my doll clothes. I used some of Julie's stamps and cut off the body parts. They still have sass and attitude on the hanger.
I also hung some glittered tulle and pearl strands in the armoire. Every princess should have a walk in "glam" closet with an uplifting and positive message reminding her she is beautiful inside and out. A message we all need to remember.
Hi there everyone!
Today I want to share with you some layouts I created for 13arts using the gorgeous Timeless collection.
I also used some 13arts mixed media products here which I will detail below.
Remember all 13arts products are available at The Flying Unicorn HERE
This is what this stunning collection looks like..
Hello, my name is Jackie, and I'm addicted to Julie Nutting stamps. My sister actually rolled her eyes at me today as I was flipping through my art journal, and told me I am obsessed (with both JN stamps and the show Once Upon a Time, which is the topic of the art journal). While the first step to healing an addiction may be admitting you have a problem, which I do, I'm not quite at the "admitting I need help" stage yet. In fact, I am counting down the days to Prima summer releases, hoping for more Julie Nutting stamps.
So you bought a bunch of Prima Wood Icons from the Flying Unicorn Store! So did I! They're so pretty, and they come in so many different shapes and sizes. You can paint them, stain them, distress them, spray them with your mists, etc. The possibilities are endless! You've used them on a several projects, and now they're gone. But you still have the little wood containers they came in. What are you going to do with those?
Well, let me help you!!!
I thought I would share what the containers look like, just in case you're one of the few people who haven't seen these before, or bought tons of them!!!! Eh, that might have been just me! When I bought them, I opened all the packages, and dumped them in a little bin, but I did save the containers. Waiting for an idea......and it came! Here's one way you could re-purpose them......
I took 3 containers (1 large and 2 smaller ones) and glued them together to form a zig-zag. Then it was time to play!!! I sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabios and Starburst Sprays. Then added bits of scrap papers, and vintage book pages to the backs of each square. Some of the papers were stamped with Pink Paislee's Nantucket stamps and Stazon Ink, before adhering. I used a square punch for the scraps....so that meant minimal cutting, and it also leaves a shadow behind each piece.
Now to get creative! I went through my stash, and pulled out laces, trims, sea shells, charms, Flying Unicorn Metal Adornments, Tim Holtz Ideaology pieces, Prima embellies, chippies, resins, flowers, jewels, beads, buttons, and anything else that I thought was fitting. Some of the pieces, were left as is, and others were sprayed, inked and distressed. I've been hoarding some of these pieces, so it was definitely time to use them up!
I glued my bits and pieces, inside, outside and around the edges. I also added a few items to the top of my 'shadowbox'.
I love how the Creative Embellishment Flourish came out!!! I didn't overfill my little 'squares' as I wanted them to stand on their own. Besides, I have a tendency to overdo the embellies, and this time, I wanted my piece to be a bit cleaner. Okay, well this is as 'clean' as it gets with me!
Look, I even used some of the flower wood icons -- bottom left!! One of my fave parts has to be the Prima lightbulb and pipe....brilliant, if I do say so myself!! LOL I had a blast, putting this little shadowbox together. And I will definitely make more!!
So go ahead, pull out your tiny containers, any small containers, glue them together, and start playing!
It's my turn to share a project or two ...
I've played a little with gesso and modelling paste and mists; lots of different mists.
I pulled a piece of water colour paper from my pad [that is occasionally used for my art journal] and wiped it over with a clear gesso and dried with the heat gun.
I then cut my paper into smaller workable pieces.
I've sprayed with various mists for a little colour and then used my heat gun to dry.
Then I've used this Crafter's Workshop Template with some modelling paste - isn't it absolutely gorgeous. Gosh, I love this one.
And then I've sprayed some more.
Have to say I had the inky fingers look going on for a day or two and my background pieces all looked similar to this.
Then I really did just grab a few bits and pieces that were lying around, turned on the hot glue gun and embellished; used a little Stazon ink around the edges and adhered to cardstock.
another card where I 'askewed' the top slightly before adhering
and then another one, flush
Products from the Flying Unicorn store.
Happy creating everyone.

Hi Unis! Jax here with you today, and this month I'm happy to be bringing you a video BAP on the making of this layout with the May Kit of the Month.
I've condensed the whole thing into 8 minutes, thanks to Fast Forward. I hope you enjoy it!
The Prima Wire Thread is one of my favourite types of embellishments released this year - I wish I had it in every colour! Here I've twisted it into a quick and easy dragonfly to top off my flower cluster.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed the video!
