Hello, Olga Siedlecka here. I feel more than honoured to be here and I’m so exited to share with you my first project prepared as a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® guest designer. I’m a addicted to a joined smell of coffee, cookies and a fresh magazine. I always cherish such moments of relaxation as a sheer pleasure. Moreover, I usually find flicking through fashion pages very inspiring. I also look upon each and every color magazine as if it were first and foremost my source of illustrations and texts to be used afterwards. This time I decided to the mixed media portrait using wonderful Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® media.

If you are new to this blog, let me fill you in about Take the Challenge. Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. We will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that month's challenge. And the winners will get a prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
We are in the last month of the first quarter of 2014...already! I'm already starting to re-evaluate some of the things that I planned for this year -- what to keep, what to set aside for now, what to drop, etc. And one core theme that's guiding my thought process significantly is satisfaction -- that of doing a job well, living up to my own expectations, meeting standards, etc. and above all feeling fulfilled in what I do, how I do it, who I do it with and for, and why I do it. When those pieces fit, I stay motivated, curious, and creative. I find that the greatest everyday motivator for me is loving what I do and wanting to do more of it. So, my motto is "Do what you love, love what you do."
What's your motto? Show us any project that captures the essence of your motto.

Hi everyone, Mou here with today's blog hop project.
You can recreate my card by following these steps:
I love the look of metallics on a neutral background. This look is very easy to achieve with Mix & Match products from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I found this old picture of my family and I thought it would be fun to do a single picture 8" x 8" vintage scrapbook page.
The little one is me... so I guess I'm a little vintage myself.
Hi everyone Beck Beattie again here sharing another Scrapbook page to inspire you with yummy Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® products.
I have really been enjoying exploring the mix and match system working with differnet products that work just so well together. Today I'm really featuring the use of Gelatos and how you can add LOADS of colour into your projects using thes nifty sticks of colour goodness.
While going through my photos trying to find that 'perfect' photo, I came across this pic of friends' girls from when we went duck feeding with all the kids one day. I love how sweet the photo is and can't wait to Scrapbook it a second time so I can gift them one each.
Here is a video so that you can see how the background is created, and the layout comes together, while learning some techniques along the way.
I have to apologise for the occassional video shaking as my new camera set up just wasnt working, but I really wanted to show all the techniques so left it in.
For today's project I have used:
Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® Gelatos in Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum and Metallic Mint
I have teamed these up with the following Spellbinders® dies:
Gold Facets, Gold Majesty Circles, Standard Circles Small and Lacey Circles.
I have also used paper by Heidi Swapp, Bazzill Card Shoppe cardstock, flowers from Kaisercraft and Manor House Creations, lace from Prima Marketing, sticker word from Jillibean Soup and tiny twine from Craft Queen.
I'd love to see you adding some colour into your projects, and please share with us on the Design Memory Crafts Facebook page here. I'd LOVE to see what you create!
MIX & MATCH from Faber-Castell makes designing with COLOR simple. Choose a color set that inspires you. Choose a medium. Mix & Match as you create. Color coordinated palettes give you the freedom to design your project knowing the colors & mediums will work beautifully together.
Hello Olga. Your mixed media model canvas is stunning! Like you, I like to flip through fashion magazines and now I will be looking for great pages to alter as you have this one. Your tutorial is great and I am confident that I can make this project--thank you!
Sending smiles, Deb
