Off The Page Project for The Flying Unicorn as Guest Designer

I am honored and excited that I was invited to be the 1st Guest Designer for The Flying Unicorn for 2106!! When I opened my box, I was tickled pink!!! really tickled!! I have had a creative blast working with the January 2016  Your Passion, Your Art Main Kit and all of the coordinating add-on kits,  Mixed Art, Mixed Passion, and the Small Art Big Passion kits. They are all so versatile. If you like layouts, cards, mixed media and altered projects, then these kits are for you. There is a little bit of everything for everyone.
I will be revealing my projects done with the kits throughout the month of January. There is so much to create with. For my first project, I used the Off The Page product that is included in the Main kit. It is a wooden coaster set. If you know me , then you know I love mini albums. I can turn anything into a mini!! So this is what I did with the coaster set. I just couldn't resist. For this, I used the The Small Art Big Passion kit.

For the coaster holder, I inked all of the edges using the  Prima Vintage Pink Chalk ink. Then I covered the entire outside using the 13 Arts Secret Letters 6x6 paper pad. The scale of the print is perfect for small scale projects. The front was adorned with Petaloo flowers ad the Prima Shabby Chic resins. I adhered pieces of the trim to the sides.

 Here is view of the back.

For the mini album itself, I had my husband drill 3 holes though the tops of the coasters once each one was covered with the paper. The cover was adorned with butterflies  from the paper I fussy cut, the flowers, a resin, and the Prima metal embellishments, I slid the darling paper clip onto the paper. I used 3 gold book rings from my own stash to hold the mini together. Then I added seam binding ribbon from my stash to the tops of the book rings.

I fussy cut the Prima Lace Stickers for the title and adhered them to a piece of patterned paper and inked the edges before applying them to the back of the mini. Then I used fussy cut butterflies, and added the flower and the Prima leaves came from the Mixed Passion kit.

Here is a side view of my chunky little mini. 

I hope you were inspired to do something with the Coaster Set. There is plenty of room on the inside to display your favorite photos. Please join us at The Flying Unicorn in the month of January to see what the rest of the design team had created  using the kits. Make 2016 the year of creative genius!! See my previous blog post below to see the kits and some of the work that Flying Unicorn Artists have created for your inspiration. You will not be disappointed!! And stay tuned as I reveal more of my work for The Flying Unicorn throughout the month. I frequently shop at The Flying Unicorn Store as there is always a wonderful selection of the newest product!!
