Ustream Class with Flying Unicorn University!

I had my first Ustream class for Flying Unicorn!  How fun!  Of course, I was a bit nervous... Nothing like using a brand new camera for the first time while going live!  :)

I am happy to say that all went well and that you can see my class here on you tube.  It's so easy... all you have to do is watch, right here on my blog!  Yeah!

I will walk you through each step of the way to make this layout.  
Lots of beautiful papers and ribbons were used and I even show you how I tie my bows. 


Here is a photo of the finished layout.

And a few close-ups to see the details.

Don't forget that you can always get a discount on the supplies used the week of the show!

Pearlescent and Foil Goodie Box from 3 Birds Studio

Hi y'all!  I want to share a little gift bag and tag that I made using 3 Birds products!  They are releasing the Pearlescent and Foil Goodie Box soon!  This little box is so fun and has over 1400 pieces in it!  It is perfect for adding special little touches to all your projects!

In addition to this little bag and tag, I have a coordinating card on the 3 Birds Blog today!  Be sure to take a peek if you have a moment!  

I used a store bought black bag and just jazzed it up a bit.  The floral strip is 2 inches wide.  I added borders using a Fiskar's punch and stripes of orange from the Quilled Cardmaking Kit.

The little tag was cut from paper and the border was added to the bottom instead of the sides.

I added a doily with a touch of bakers twine glues around it.  Then I added my favorite part!  The quilled flowers!  They are so pretty and the little pearl and foil pieces are such a great accent to them! 

To attach them, I used tiny Zots.  I just set them in place directly on top of the quilled pieces.  Then I added the final touch to this project, the ribbons.

To attach the ribbon, I used Beacons Fabri-tac and just glued it at each of the folds.  

NOW, one more fun little twist!  Next week, I'm going to show you the project that I made to put in the bag!  Hope you come back to see what I've come up with!

Don't forget to drop by the 3 Birds Blog to take a peek at my card!

Flying Unicorn August Build a Page

It's my turn to share a page and give the instructions for how I made it for Flying Unicorn's monthly Build a Page.

Here is the page that we are making. 


With the exception of a couple of adornments that you can find in the Flying Unicorn store, a bit of ribbon and some embroidery floss, everything you need for this page is included in the kits!

Be sure to check out all the details in the Flying Unicorn Forums!   Here's a link: August BAP

Mojo Monday at Flying Unicorn!

It's Mojo Monday!  If you don't know what that means, of course, I'm going to tell you!

At Flying Unicorn, Alda provides a gorgeous sketch the one of the designers uses to create a page for inspiration.  In addition to a sketch, you have to opportunity to play along with the sketch for a chance to win a gift certificate to the Flying Unicorn Store! 

It was my chance to use the Sketch for this week's Mojo Monday.  Here is the page that I created.

I just wasn't finished with the kits yet, so I used them to make this page, too!

Here is Alda's Sketch that I based my layout on.  Isn't it beautiful?

Here are some of the details!
