Hi there! Katie from KBStamps here again. Today I want to share a fun tutorial with you for how to make this Sparkle card! I love the way this turned out and the fun use of the PITT® Pastel Pencil(s)!
Guess who is here today, me! Zoey!
Today I want to show you an Altered Tin! I had this Tin since years , maybe 6 years? And I never had the chance to play with it...untill today!
Hi, Madoka here.
I'd like to share the way of making orginal paper using the products of Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
This is the layout of "Tanabata".
"Tanabata" is a Japanese Star Festival that celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi.
According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on July 7th on the Milky Way.
In Japan people generally celebrate this day by writing the wishes on "Tanzaku" which is small pieces of paper and hanging them on bamboo trees with other decorations.
The bamboo trees with decorations are colorful and very beautiful.
And this event is full of many hopes and dreams.
So I tried to express that dreamy atmosphere.
Hey there crafty peeps Rita Barakat here! Did you know that you can use Faber-Castell Design Memory Crafts Gel Medium, Gesso and Glaze on glass? You can! I used them and steampunk Gelatos®Colors to transform this oil bottle! To adhere paper and drawings use Gel Medium, to add color paint a layer of Gesso first. To seal your work cover it with Glaze. You can also make a clear paint by mixing Gelatos®Colors with Glaze. Here is the finished project! SO fun adding all the texture and layers. What will you create next?
Hi crafty friends it's Lisa with a fun tag for you today using just a few supplies for a WOW effect!
Tags are really great to make as an alternative to a card or a canvas. Let's get started:
Have you ever participated in a traveling/ Round Robin swap before? I used to years ago while active on Scrapbook.com, but haven't in a loooong time. When a friend started a journal Round Robin swap, I was in! We chose our own topic and journal and then we send it on to a designated person in our group for them to add to it! It's exciting and fun to see the journals as we get them and create in each one. It was hard to let go of this baby at first but I really loved getting someone else's to create in. Here is a peek at my journal before I mailed it on to my buddy!
It's summer and the living is FINE and INSPIRING. Allow the colors and feelings of the season to inspire your creativity, as I did with this tag. Summer makes me feel happy, warm and playful. Great motivation for creating an AWESOME tag.

Hello everyone. Terri here. Today I want to share with you a layout I completed using several different Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products. So, let's get started! First, here's a look at what I have created.
I love creating my own backgrounds for layouts. I think my pictures deserve mini works of art to showcase them! (This is my oldest son in Spain last summer)
I began with a 12 x 12 sheet of kraft cardstock. To create some layers I first stamped with a world map stamp randomly on the background using a Dark Indigo Stamper’s Big Brush Pen. These are a staple in my craft bag. I rarely use inks to stamp anymore because these pens are permanent india ink. They come is so many colors and are very versatile. Just color directly onto your stamp and viola! Perfection!
