Hello, Angie Blom here. I am so excited to be a part of the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Guest Design Team. It was on my bucket list for a long time to have this opportunity to work with these fantastic mixed media products that I love so much. I am over the moon with excitement and can't wait to share some fun projects with you.
We’re hopping with May Arts this week! We’re so excited to be partnering again with them and crafting with their fabulous ribbons.
Are you ready for an inspiration filled week with giveaways? Here’s how you can enter: Stop by our blog and the May Arts blog each day this week and leave a comment. Two winners will win $50 of product from us, and 3 spools of ribbons from May Arts. The hop will close at 11PM on February 15th. The winners will be announced here the next day.
For Day 1, I have an ir-RISIST-ible trim for ya featuring May Arts 1" Solid Wrinkled Ribbon in White with a Texture Gems Ice Liner watercolor resist technique! Before I dive into my project, I wanted to share with you, my most meaningful Valentine EVER...
"Once upon a time in 6th grade, my first boyfriend (more like dude I waved to across the classroom and occasionally sat next to at lunch) gave me a cheesy Tasmanian Devil card with a box of chocolates. I wasn't a huge Tasmanian Devil fan, but soon after I started watching the cartoons with lovey dovey moon eyes and the Whitman chocolates were pretty special at the time, considering my 11-year-old palette ;) I look back on it now and it was one of those lame first Valentine's Day moments I'm certain we all get hazed into- teddy bears, chocolates, roses, balloons, tasmanian devil cards...right?! But, it still holds a special place in my heart."
Okay onto the quick technique video tutorial:
I hope to learn about some of your most memorable Valentines!!!! I also hope you enjoyed to quick technique video! I loved working with the May Arts Ribbon.
Thanks for hopping by,

Hi everyone, Mou here today with a gift wrapping tutorial. I like to keep my wraps simple and unique. Here are a couple of ways I'm wrapping my gifts this year.
For this project, you'll need:
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Gesso
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Glaze
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® Stamper’s Big Brush Pen: Black # 199
Others: kraft wrapping paper, paint brush, pencil
Cut wrapping paper for the gifts you want to wrap. Wrap gifts and secure with wrapping paper with tape or stitch into packets.
Draw an oval on the wrapped surface with pencil. Following the outline of the oval, draw and color circles in various sizes with Red Cherry Gelatos color.
Draw leaves around the red circles with Pistachio Gelato color.
Use Glaze to blend and add shin to the colored design.
Write sentiment with Stamper's Big Brush pen.
Splatter some diluted gesso with paint brush to mimic snow.
Add some ribbon, label, tag, or candy cane to the wrapped gift to finish.
Hope you enjoyed today's tutorial and would use your Faber Castell Design Memory Craft mixed media stash to wrap and personalize your gift wraps this year.
And now, the winners of December 2014 Take the Challenge with Mou...

I hope that you enjoyed my video and laughed along with me. ;) I really enjoyed making this piece as I wasn't sure what exactly I was going to do when I started, but I love how it turned out.

It's summer time and the weather is finally warm enough for us to spend time at the beach (even if it is a lakeside beach) and enjoy each other and the sunsets of Central New York. This page has a photo of a sunset in Florida but it does remind me of summer days. I created this layout on a patterned paper that looks like cork. It gave it a sandy feel and I love the look of natural materials.
