Hi Faber-Castell Peeps!! It’s me, Karen, here again to show you what I love about my Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft pens and crafter crayons! I may not be the best at sketching and drawing, but I love to cut and tear paper into shapes to make projects.
This week, I sketched a sailboat and cut it out of some of book paper and then my favorite scrapbook paper. I glued the pieces down to my canvas with Faber-Castell Gel Medium, sealed the whole thing with Gel medium, and let it dry. What I love about using gel medium is the fact that it isn’t sticky like glue. I also love that when I am working on my finishes, I can actually ‘erase’ pen marks for a little bit since they sit on top of the medium and dry a little bit slower!
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.
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!
Hi everyone Beck Beattie here with my first Guest Design Team post and I am so very excited to be shaing with you today!
When I got my package of yummy products to play with I just couldn't wait to get started. I have always loved products by Faber-Castell and the new collection of yummy products released recently at CHA are just DIVINE to work with!
Today I am sharing a mixed media Scrapbook page I created of my little boy on his birthday.
I had so much fun mixing it all up with the different items in there that I created a video to show you how I used the various Faber-Castell® products together.
These products are designed to work well with each other as I have done on this layout. Why not give it a go to mix things up a little and share with us on the Design Memory Crafts Facebook page here. I'd LOVE to see what you create!
Well, well, well....look who's back. :) Yes, my friends it's Lisa. Ha! I guess you just can't get rid of me THAT easy it seems.
I'm here today to share a little project using a fave product of mine - the PITT Pastel Pencils. These pencils are really gorgeous. They blend like a dream, I tell ya! They are lightfast and archival, they aren't messy like chalk can be, and the leads are glued the entire length of the barrel to prevent breakage. I know I sound like a salesman here, but they are really wonderful. Wait til you see how easy they are to use...
Hello Everyone!!! It's Tiffany here and I've started a fun series of Video Tutorials featuring our new Textural Accent medium, Chalkboard Paint! The series, Chalkboard Entertaining, shows various ways a clever crafter like yourself can apply chalkboard paint to the art of entertaining and decorating! It's amazing how all of the other Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mediums work with this trendy paint!
First up, I'll be showing you how to jazz up your drinkware:

Hello to everyone, Leonie here. Welcome to my last blog post as a Guest Designer for Design Memory Craft®. It's been a great experience working on this team and of course working with these products is a joy in itself. I hope I've provided some inspration and plenty of ideas on how to use Design Memory Craft® products.
I wanted to leave you with one of my favourite types of scrapbook backgrounds, a rainbow or glorious colors!! Rainbows just always make me feel happy seeing all the colors of the spectrum in one place. Design Memory Craft Gelatos® come in such a gorgeous range of mix and match colors that are perfect for creating a lovely rainbow effect on any scrapbook page or card. Here's a video showing how I created the rainbow effect on this background.
Thanks so much to Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® for this opportunity and thank you to everyone that has stopped by to look at and comment on my work. I truly appreciate and value each and every comment.

How bright and fun! LOVE the bright colors and even though it is a "fun" piece it is still absolutely stunning!! This would look marvelous hanging in my hall way for all to see! I will definitely be giving this a try! TFS!
