〜My Little Angel〜 the layout of "Tanabata"

 

IMG_7876

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.

Round Robin Journal with Jen Matott (AND Ustream winner)

P1010630

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!

My World

DSC_0012

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!

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

Patriotic Layout by Tonya Gibbs

We recently celebrated our Independence Day here in the USA.  I love to see everyone dressed in their red, white & blue to show their patriotism. My Sister In-law shared this photo of her and her beautiful daughter.  Since my niece is all dolled up like a pageant queen, I wanted my layout to resemble a parade float.   The colors needed to be rich and vibrant, but feminine and soft, so I turned to my stash of Gelatos®. Their creamy texture and rich pigments were just what I needed to make this layout pop!

When I use Gelatos® I'm often asked these two questions:
