A new adventure
Taking Flight!

Hello to All!

Hello fellow crafters!  I am so excited to be introducing myself as a design team member of the new Faber Castell Design Memory Craft team. I absolutely love all of my Faber Castell products and can't wait to share some of my ideas with you.

Here is a little about me. I am a mother of two beautiful children and the wife of an adoring and supportive husband. My family has always enjoyed my scrapbooking hobby and loves to be the star of the "project". 

I have been scrapbooking for about 14 years and remember the first time I went to a crop.  It was as if a whole new world opened up for me. I had always enjoyed photography, but this new hobby allowed me to create something from my pictures and also give them a voice.  I know now that there are so many stories in our pictures that would never be told without scrapbooking.  

Well, as everyone knows, this hobby called scrapbooking can really lead you into other crafting worlds and it wasn't long before I was learning how to stamp and make cards and other paper craft items.  

I love the paper crafting business. It is a wonderful beautiful community filled with the loveliest people. We care about each other, we encourage each other and we share a passion like no other and I am so glad to be a part of it.

Today I wanted to share with you a project that I created using the Design Memory Craft Stamper's Big Brush, a plain wood frame, acrylic paint, and a stamp. I really enjoy the simplicity of this project and it is a quick and easy gift to make.


The first step in this project is to prep and paint a plain wooden frame. You can get frames like I used at your local craft store in all shapes and sizes. For this project I used white acrylic paint. Then I distressed the frame with some fine grit sand paper and distress ink.  The last step is to stamp your design. Take a favorite stamp and rub your Stampers Big Brush Pen all over the stamp. Huff, with your breath, on the inked stamp right before you stamp to insure that the ink is still damp. Press the stamp down hard and evenly onto the frame.  If needed you can touch up areas on the frame with your marker or even add your own doodles and text.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  I will be back with many more fun projects for you to make soon. Have a wonderful holiday season and a Happy New Year!

xoxo, Christine

I love the distressed look of the backround on the frame and the flowers in the lower left corner. So many ideas!
