Hi! Today I’m sharing my Off the Page (OTP) project included within the Flying Unicorn February 2014 Kit – Your Passion Your Art! The February kit included a fun paper mache heart box by Darice.
I altered my heart box using the Key to My Heart collection by Kaisercraft (included in the kit). The pink, red, and floral prints were perfect for this box, as well as the Heartwarming Vintage, Love Mail journaling cards (also included in the kit).
This is what the heart box looked like originally...
Good morning, afternoon or possibly evening deoending on what time everyone checks in. I want to share my creations with the AMAZING VINTAGE HARMONY kit. First I want to say I totally lost my drive for creating layouts - we just could not get along. I am slowly and I mean slowly learning to create them again and it is simply because of the Flying Unicorn. There are so many inspiring women here to learn from and though it may not seem like I am always here looking - unfortunately I am a bit of a studier or onlooker at first. You may not see alot from yet, but I am trying to soak in things and learn. I think I am on the right track because now I have done more layouts than I have in years.
Now these are the layouts I have done - the kit makes things so much easier to especially for someone who is just getting back into layouts -so you can not and I mean can not go wrong with getting a kit!!
This is my beautiful sister-in-law and my niece and nephew who are demons but the love of my life - especially my nephew Jayden...
I fussy cut the big red flower off of another paper in the kit which was the Beautiful Moments and it broke my heart to cut it too... I have recuperated (I think)
I believe in using almost everything off the paper the title was the title off the paper and these borders I used from cutting the end of the paper if you turn it over it has the color of the paper on it. So I figured hey I can use this and I did.
This is the Little Yellow Bicycle from the kit - I love their papers too well I am a paper hoarder so I love it all!!
I hope you have enjoyed my creations with the kit
Happy Tuesday Everyone! Frank here to share a few of my creations from the June Kit Of The Month, I had tons of fun with this kit, not only is it filled with the most amazing colorful papers, but the embellishments, and flowers are just gorgeous!I truly had so much fun working with this kit. First off I will share this canvas I made using the beautiful pearlescent watercolors, I simply loved the colors and decided to use them on a canvas, combine the lovely KaiserCraft papers included in the kit, and you have a perfect combination!
Here are some closeups!
Next is a layout I made and that I fell in love with, I used some of the gorgeous Prima paper and Bo Bunny paper included in the kit, and oh my what a combination, together with the beautiful KaiserCraft rubon quotes, I was in love!
Here are your close ups!
Of course I also worked on the awesome OTP and a small little mini I made too:
Thanks for stopping by today, you can see these and other amazing Creative Team Creations with the June Kit in the Kit Of the Month Group!
Have a good one!
The June kit has really been a favorite for me, I've had so much fun using the rich Prima Fairy Belle papers and the Bo Bunny Country Garden. And of course the Kaisercraft papers have been lucious too! This is a layout about dh's cousins' husband who passed recently. We went to Illinois in April to attend his memorial service and celebrate his life at a gathering at his home after the service. I was really happy to be there so that I could help Marilyn, his widow, with all the preparations. The photo and verse that I have scrapped is something that she and their children had printed to give everyone. Although it was a sad occasion, we were not sad, instead we celebrated what a wonderful man he was and the wonderful life that he lived.
I used papers from the Bo Bunny Country Garden collection and a scrap of Glitz (the dotted piece) for this layout. The braid and Dusty Attic frame are from my stash.
We've been talking about various ways of treating chipboard this month and I wanted to share this technique with you. First I painted the DA frame with antique white acrylic paint. Then I inked a flourish stamp that came in the May kit with Perfect Pearls Medium and stamped on the chipboard. Next I brush on some dry Heirloom Gold Perfect Pearls powder (also from the May kit). The powder adheres to the PP medium and brings out the flourish image. It appears to be worn off in some places and that is by design, to give it that aged look. I then coated the frame with Ranger Glossy Accents to seal the Perfect Pearls. Its a really easy technique and looks so great to me! The leafy scrolls are cut with a favorite Spellbinders for Heartfelt Creations die, Bella Rose and then dabbed with Lindy's Gator Gumbo Olive.
Here are some closeups:
I loved this bright side of the Country Garden collection, Dave's life was colorful, he was much loved and so this tribute to him needed to be bright and cheerful. If he were here, I know he would agree.
Here's another LO I did using the kit and Tammy's wonderful BAP tute. I changed it a little but the basic design is there. I was struggling with this LO and Tammy's tute was just what I needed. Here I've used the Prima papers from the kit and a doily and cardstock from my stash.
The flowers are a mix of layered Kaisercraft, a Petaloo and Primas that came in the kit. I used the pearlescent water colors to tone down the bright pink flowers. I also used the watercolors to transform the Petaloo flower from bright white to a softer pink color. I fussy cut flowers from one of the Prima papers and layered underneath the blooms and vine.
I heat embossed the Fabscraps Victorian sign from the kit with Stampendous aged gold and for the bracket and shabby white on the sign. After I added the letters, I painted the sign with Crackle Accents to add to its old and aged appearance.
I am looking forward to seeing all of your creations using the June kit. Don't forget to load them in the June KOM thread!
Happy Friday Afternoon!

The Kit Of The Month reveal is always my favorite part of the month. I am always happy and excited to share with you the creations I made with the amazing kits that our dear Alda puts together. This April kit I must say was my favorite yet. The kit included wonderful Spring colors while combining perfectly vintage papers from Glitz, French Kiss, which was amazing to work with. Sit back and sip your coffee or tea there is a lot of yummy pictures ahead!
This is a new layout I was saving to share with you all, I LOVE this one, the papers from Glitz of course are to DIE for!! So perfectly beautiful and perfect to distress! I loved the little picket fence, it was so unique and fun to work with. I painted mine gold, for it to combine with the layout, did lots of distressing too. Here are some close ups:
The second layout was also a fave, I loved working with neutral colors this month, and these papers were perfect, the Ruby Rocket August Moon papers were also perfect for this neutral effect.
Of course not all of them had to be neutral, I also loved working with the Fabscraps Organic Collection, wow what beautiful papers, truly exquisite colors and super fun to work with. Take a look.
Yes, I added that beautiful nest onto the layout, it was a MUST!!! I loved it so much! It is truly the PERFECT embellishment, its EXTREME! Like Me!!!! Here are some close ups!
OK, lets take a layout break for a little, I also made a MINI! Oh ya! There is so much in this kit, its so amazing, I made a lovely Spring Mini, and I called it Lucky, because its so vibrant and beautiful, there was so many lovely flowers on this kit, wow, I used the musical paper from Ruby Rocket to make this one take a look
Isn't it awesome? Loved working with those amazing Ruby Rocket Papers, the yummy Manor House Flowers and Flying Unicorn Flowers too!
Back to MORE layouts! Oh, I love my burlap, and when I saw burlap pattern, OMG I had to use it, I am telling you, those French Kiss Papers, AMAZING!!! SO beautiful!
Isn't the paper simply wondeful? It really adds so much! I used a lot of metals and vintage jewelry in most of my layouts this time around, I found they fit perfectly with all of the papers, so beautiful. Next, I made a Printers Tray, oh yes, I loved it, I used some of the flowers from the flower add-on, which is SUPER worth the money, it has so many delicious flowers in it! SOOO GORG! Prima, Manor House, Kaiser, OH MY!
Again I used some of the beautiful Glitz paper, cannot get enough of it!
Yummy lace, also in the kit, aahhhh so beautiful....
Finally, my Off the Page birdhouse! I went with an awesome SteamPunk theme, which is what my challenge on the forums is all about! I went to Home Depot's Scrapbooking section (oh yes I found it lol) and got me some heavy metals! Take a look!
Well that's all I have to share with you all today, I hope I was able to inspire you and I hope you create something this weekend, there is still tons of these goodies in the Flying Unicorn Store so come on over and grab them while you can!
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!
Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Tuesday everyone! Frank here sharing the projects I made with the fabulous 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!
Happy Monday everybody! Sandi here with a few of my projects using the February Kit of the Month "Always with Love." First, I want to say thanks to Alda for providing such awesome kits .. and for allowing me to work with them! This month was over- the-top gorgeous!
This was actually the second project that I did but I think it is my favorite. It went together so quickly, I felt like the page made itself! Here you see some of the luscious FabScraps papers. This is the first time I have had the opportunity to work with them and I am in love!! I aded a few Petaloo flowers of my own but the ones that steal the show are the Zva pink and purple ones. Within the floral cluster I tucked in one of those cute grapevine wreaths! Love them! The lacing tash is Dusty Attic (DA0631, painted wam winter white) and is from my own stash but I thought it would be perfect on a bridal page! The heart shaped KaiserCraft corner flourish comes in the kit and could be used so many ways!! I inked it up a bit for definition. Then for a quick title I added the pink rhinestone title LOVE from KaiserCraft which is also in the kit. My butterfly is fussy cut from some older Melody Ross papers.
I have to admit to being a bit partial to this page! The photo is of my Mom and Dad on their wedding day. Here I have use All Yours pp as the background paper, distressed and then added to some brown cardstock. For drama, I used a Dusty Attic garden frame (DA0606) from my stash that is painted with Tsukinek walnut stain, then Coffee Glimmer Mist and lastly Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist. See that cute little cherub? That was the very first thing I did with my kit! I knew if I didn't fussy cut him and the flowers, that I would use that page "as is" and loose the benefit of the cherub as an embellishment. He is from the Love Letters paper. Then I just started layering some papers (Devoted) along with a Crafty Secrets tag from the kit (love those things) and a crochet doily. I've worked in a Prima vine and some ribbon from my stash as well as buttons from the kit .... along with a button from my Mom's old button box! I"ve tucked in more DA (french flourish, DA0273) painted white and then inked and adorned it with a Bo Bunny trinket from my "stuff." The butterfly was fussy cut from some older BoBunny Gabrielle papers.
This one was fun to do!! I did some wet and some dry distressing to my b/g paper You & Me and added some peach cardstock from the Jan KOM as a foundation. Then I misted my page with Sunkissed Peach GM and when that dried added my fence using a Prima mask and more Coffee Shop. Next I added my center panel using the Sincerely pp along with some off-white c/s that was punched with my Cherish Heart punch. The upper right corner was wet distressed, folded back and then I tucked in a white doily. For interest I added in another butterfly. For flowers, I used a mix of the ones I fussy cut earlier from the Love Letters pp along with some that Alda sent in the kit and one older Prima Madrigal bloom. In honor of my team mate Frank, I hand snipped a few banners and added those into the floral clusters. That lower right corner has another of the awesome KC wooden flourishes. And did you see the American Craft Thickers? Woohoo! Instant title!!
Okay, one last layout before I show you my OTP. This was done using the Mojo Monday sketch from Jan 30th which I designed. So, that was kind of fun! This is my dd Danielle's wedding invitation which has Bacon's Wedding Morning painting on the front. I've used the 7 Gypsies paper here, Canal and Campo from the Venice collection but used some Sweet Nothings (With Love) as my b/g. I fussy cut the dove and more of the florals and added these in .. along with another tag from Crafty Secrets. Loved all those images! There is a hint of green in the With Love paper, so I used more Dusty Attic (Flourish #5, DA0434) as an accent that has been painted with Dirty Martini Glimmer Glam .. from the Flying Unicorn store ! Oh, I almost forgot the rub-ons .. these were so perfect for this page!
Last but not least is my OTP project another Kaiser Craft mini that spells out DREAM! I have been wanting to try my hand at crackle paint since last Fall when team mate Jackie Weeks used some on her OTP tic tac toe box. It was a ton of work but I do love how it turned out. The inner pages were simply painted white. After all of that dried .. whee, in parts (base coat, undercoat, crackle coat, top coat) but about 3 days all together, then I decorated my mini with pearls from the Flying Unicorn Store and flowers, then added some lush ribbon to my album rings. This is still a work in progress!
Sorry for the long post but I wanted to share the process with you! This was a gorgeous kit and I sure hope that you snagged one before they sold out! Glad I got mine!!! I still have tons left and hope to bring you some more projects mid-month. Talk soon!
I think it's safe to say that I'm a Graphic 45 addcit. So, I'm most excited about this week's focus on their products. I thought I'd start with a couple of projects using my January Kit of the Month which features G45's Tropical Travelogue. The layout above is a fairly straight forward project using Hibiscus Heaven pp, Tropical Travelogue, as well as small pieces of Island Jewel, Garden Isle and Paradise Postage. The base is from Core'dinations Nostalgic collection. My white hibiscus flowers were fussy cut from the papers and the leaves were bent to look more life like. I've finished the page with some jute, Websters Bloomers, Stickles and a Prima bling I had on hand.
Next I did a quick altered project with some tags cut from the Tropical Travelogue papers and using a teal blue charger as my base. I first covered the charger with some fish net from the KOM, then added my tags, papers and photo, seashells and flowers from my stash. The photo is of one of my dd's and her hubby, so I suspect that she will be claiming this one. I plan to add a few more embellishments to this one but I was running out of daylight to take a photo of my project.
One of my all time favorite collections is Steampunk Debutante .. wow, the colors are so dynamic! There is still some Steampunk Debutante in the Flying Unicorn Store in the 8x8 size. You won't want to miss it! For this one, I fussy cut the flowers then added some dimensional florals as well. I've used a Dusty Attic lamp post as a mask and love the look. The wings and title were cut with my Cricut. I've added some Diamond dust on the tag and florals and that makes this page really sparkle!
Another one of my favorite is the Baby2Bride collection from Graphic 45! You might remember this layout that I did earlier this year using a gazebo as a mask. The tree, gazebo mask and photomat were cut with my Cricut. The butterflies were made with my Martha Stewart punch. I love the paper curls which I made to simply mimic wisteria on the gazebo. Those awesome title stickers are more Graphic 45.
Lastly, I wanted to share another layout from the Fall using the Magic of Oz collection available in the Flying Unicorn store. For this one, I simply wanted to show that this collection is not just for Halloween, The beige, black and red tones can be used in many different ways! Here I've done a simple birthday page adding some fussy cut flowers and then a doily from my stash and a Dusty Attic piece from the Flying Unicorn Store. I've used my Cherished Heart punch to make a bit of eyelet looking trim.
That's all from me today. I hope I've peaked your curiosity to check out the store for more of these great designer papers. Once you tab over to the store, you can find a Graphic 45 link on the left hand side bar. Happy browsing!
Hi everyone!! I am so excited to be able to share my creations using the January kit "Wishing and Hoping". The items in the kit really bring out your creative side! With the fish nets and seashells matching the Graphic 45 Tropical Travelogue perfectly, you will have no trouble bringing your layouts to life!
For this layout I started with the Island Jewel paper and used my mask I made with my Cricut and Tim Holtz mask sheets. I used Tim Holtz Peeled Paint Distress Ink for the masking. I spritzed a little Charcoal Glimmer Mist on the background as well. I used a piece of the Rainforest paper to double mat my picture and punched around the edges of one of the mats using a MS punch "Deco Fan". I used Tim Holtz Die Cut "Hardware Findings" for the hinges and after adding those I placed my netting using very small dabs of hot glue. I had a string of peach pearls which I cut and glued down onto the netting. I added my shells and flowers and used letters from the G45 stickers that come with the kit for my title.
For the next one I tried to lift Shona's "Snow Babe" layout as I LOVE the background effect she used. Well mine didn't turn out so well..lol I used Picket Fence and Broken China crackle paints for on the Jungle Fever sheet which I placed on top of the Oceania paper. Stamped a postcard on the right hand side as I was looking to make a vacation type layout. I used some of the netting from the kit to give the background texture, again using small dabs of hot glue to hold. I cut out a fence using a Timmy die and again painted with some Picket Fence. Layering using Tropical Travelouge and Tiki Voyager sheets for the picture. I did add a doily underneath as well. I painted a larger Dusty Attic flourish I had with Vintage Photo Distress Stain and then cut it into smaller pieces to tuck into my flower clusters. Used some Websters Bloomers to tie it all together.
The 3rd layout is one I did for my daughters album. I have scrapped this picture before, but as soon as I opened the kit, I knew I had to do it again! Hibiscus Heaven sheet is used for the background and I cut the Garden Isle sheet using my Cricut to make a frame and mat. I started by stitching around a couple of corners and inked edges with Rusty Hinge Distress ink. The faceplate did not come with the kit, but I painted it with Old Paper Crackle Paint to give it an aged look..like it had been under the sea for awhile. I fussy cut the images from the double sided Tropical Travelogue sheet and used some pop dots to give dimension. Tearing a bit from the left side, I added some journaling about the day. I had a Dusty Attic corner piece that I painted with a Paint Dabber-color is Pool. Made another hinge with my Timmy die and some coral with my Cricut which I misted with Marmalade Glimmer Mist. Added that wonderful netting and topped it off with my shells and flowers! Title lettering is from the Alphabet Sticker sheet in the kit as well.
The Off the Page project was super fun to work with. It will push your creativity to a whole new level! The OTP comes with 3 gorgeous glass bottles..each one is unique. A glass plate and 3 candles...plus the paints and stencils. Unfortunatley my plate and one bottle broke, but if you look at Franks gorgeous creation, you will see exactly what I'm talking about. I did however get to make 2 of my bottles which are SO cute!
This first one I swirled the blue on first. To get this look I used a very generous amount of paint on my brush, painted on the bottle in a slanted direction. I let dry before adding the green (it looks yellow) in the same way. If you do this you will notice the paint is very thick at the top and thins out towards the bottom ..this is what you want to give it dimension and texture. I wanted to do a beach theme so added the netting, flowers and pearls.
For the last one I wanted a spring theme so I painted it yellow. Let it dry in between coats if you want more coverage. I then used the stencil that comes with the kit to paint on the flower. Added some ribbon and a flower..and wah lah! *Tip*-if you are using the stencil and paint, make sure to add a generous amount of paint on your brush and 'tap' it into the space of the stencil. Do not 'brush or paint' it on as it will smear and not look right. Do this a few times for each stencil so you get better coverage.
I hope you enjoyed my creations as much as I enjoyed making them and sharing them with you! Check back tomorrow for some more wonderful projects!
Hello Everyone and Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had an amazing New Year and that everyone enjoyed some family and friends time, and of course I hope you all got crafty this weekend!
Today I am sharing the projects I made with the amazing Flying Unicorn January Kit
"Wishing & Hoping"
I must say that when I first saw this kit I was immediately blown away by the amazing colors of the different patterned papers included. I for one LOVE bright colors, I have to say these papers are simply amazing, you get the right amount of brightness and you mix in a bit of vintage appeal and you get a perfectly balanced set of papers that will simply be perfect for any of your projects. I was so completely refreshed by the patterns and the imagery on these papers that all I could think about all day was the beach, mango margaritas and even Hawaii! Oh my!
Let me share the projects I made with this amazing kit, and give you some insight on each,
This is the first layout I created and I simply could not get enough of the included netting, wow, such a wonderful texture to add to any project. I created sort of like a fisherman's net, capturing all sorts of ocean goodies, fishes, shells (which are included in the kit as well), and even some starfish in there. Of course my layout could not be complete without some banners.I added three and STUFFED them with all sorts of embellishments and yummy die cuts. I love the flowers and how the frame the picture!
The second layout was is truly one of my favorites, I created what looks like a vintage travel log book, and added all sorts of distressing and vintage elements! Really love the dimension.
This third layout was somehow a very inspirational one, I wanted to give the look of the paper opening in half to reveal a net with treasures, pearls, shells etc, and really those flowers give so much beauty to the layout as well.
I also created some cards with this amazing kit I thought the papers were perfect for Hello cards or simply any type of cards!
Of course the kit could not be complete without the Off The Page portion which I completely enjoyed, and was so awesome to work with! I painted the glass plate with the paint included in the kit and I added some paper from the kit as well, and some flowers and candles. In the middle I added one of the bottles included and added some pearls inside, just for fun.
Well those are the projects I created with the kit, I hope I was able to inspire you today, and if you were able to pick one up I hope you share your creations with us too!
Thank You for stopping by!
