With unicorns all the rage at the moment, it was very timely for CTMH to release a unicorn themed paper collection, don't you think?

Even if you aren't thrilled about using unicorns in your layouts or cards, this paper pack has lots of other fun, vibrant patterns and colours for spring and celebrating all year round.

For close ups of each of the papers in the collection, just click through to this link and click on the thumbnails of each paper and it's reverse side.

For this month's hop, I made these four cards.

For this card, I just had to use this sentiment from the Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts Bundle. I LOVE IT!!! The star die cuts from the same set were a perfect accent on this quick make card.

For this second card, that cute unicorn paper makes another appearance - along with the banner die cut and another sentiment from the Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts Bundle.

This third card continues with the unicorn theme with the unicorn die cut from the Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp + Thin Cuts Bundle. I added a bit of sparkle to the star and the unicorn's horn, snout, mane, and tail with my gold and clear shimmer brushes. And did you notice that Sparkle & Shine paper? That's actually from one of the PML cards in the paper pack.

So ... are you tired of my unicorns yet? Okay, here's a card that DOESN'T have a single unicorn in sight. What it does have is lots and lots of colour! Yes, colour. With a "U". Yay! CTMH released two versions of the Little Dreamer Scrapbooking Stamp Set (& Thin Cuts Bundle). One with the American spelling and one with the British spelling! Being Canadian, I, of course, had to have the British spelling. Oh, and those fish-tail banners across the bottom of the card? Those are actually using papers from the Adventure Fundamentals. I thought they were perfect accents on this card. Don't forget your fundamentals! All of the themed papers that are featured in the Seasonal Expressions Idea Books also pair wonderfully with the fundamentals in the Annual Inspirations Idea Book.

And now off you go to the next stop on the hop at The Brae-er!

I personally love your unicorns. There is a song my kids sing "pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows". Yup, it's a song.

These are great cards! I especially like your rainbow of stars on the last one, and your variety of card sizes... I often don't think to make anything other then 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 cards...That sparkle and shine paper is my favorite!!
