Hi everyone, Mou here with today's project!
To make this layout, I used:
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Gelatos® Designer Colors - Tropical (#770162)
Faber Castell Design Memory Craft Essential PITT® Artist Pens: BLACK (#770075)
Pink Paislee Artisan 8x8 Resist-Able paper pack
Pink Paislee Artisan Resist-Able Chipboard Hearts
Pink Paislee Artisan Borders
Pink Paislee Artisan Words: Cherish
Pink Paislee Artisan Zigzag Ribbons
Others: kraft cardstock, adhesive, thread, paper towel
Let me walk you through the steps.
1. Color the Resist-Able paper with various colors of Stamper's Big Brush pens and wipe off with a dry paper towel to reveal the resist design. Attach to cardstock.
2. Cut a 7" long piece of Zig Zag ribbon, color lightly with Gelatos, and tuck under the paper.
3. Color Resist-Able Chipboard hearts, Artsisan word 'Sweet', border, and hearts with Stamper's Big Brush pens.
4. Attach photo and the title below it. Add the colored embellishments all around the page. Stitch the pieces.
5. Journal at the bottom with PITT Artist pen.
6. Drip some matching ink along the left edge of the layout to finish.
Here are some close-up shots:
Hope you enjoyed today's project and have fun hopping :)
Hi! It's day 3 of our Blog Hop with Pink Paislee. Jen Matott here to share a little project that I made with the Artisan line and Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products. I loved the wooden covers from their album because it's covered in fabric that you can color yourself! I took one of them and made it into a cute hanging sign.
Here's some of the process I used with parts of this sign. I started with creating a spray with the Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft 50's Diner Gelatos® set in Banana using the Gelatos® Mist Maker Set.
This kit makes it very easy to make your own sprays from the Gelatos® and some water. I used the Banana color and shaved a bit off with the tool into a dish. I filled the spray bottle up with water and dumped it into the dish. After swirling and mushing up the Gelatos®, I used the eyedropper to put the color in the spray bottle. Viola! Done!
I used a Pink Paislee stencil to create the background. Once it was dry, I added some of the other colors in the corners.
I love those Artisan shapes and words! They are white and perfect for adding colors to customize your page or project. I used the PITT Artist Pen in Black Small tip to outline the groove in the word.
Here is one of the Artisan papers that has a resist design already on the paper so all you have to do is add color! I used Gelaots to add color and wiped off the color that collected on the resist with a towel. I also colored the butterflies (one was a chipboard resist one and the other is paper) with the Aqua Dolce and Banana.
Before I assembled it all, I added some dots with sequin waste and the Squid Ink Gelato and dabber. I colored some on the craft mat and picked it up with the dabber. I swirled it over the stencil and it created soft dots. Here's a look at the finished project all done again.

It's that time of year that all mothers love... a day to celebrate us (aka Mother's Day)! We work hard but it has lots of rewards when we see our children being kind, doing creative things and showing independence. All the things we try to teach them in order to be productive citizens. I was thrilled when I got this kit to create alongside my kids.
What's Creativity for Kids? Creativity for Kids is our sister brand, specializing in activity products for children. We thought we'd pair up with them for Mother's Day because our products marry perfectly well with each other.
We tore into the package and the kids had ideas right away! There are so many pieces included in this set that you could make lots of projects with it!
Our first project was making spinning "helicopters"... my oldest was set on this task. He started picking out pieces and beads. I got my Crop-a-Dile out and punched holes in the wood pieces easily. We threaded them on sticks and pipecleaners. They were super happy with this!
Now onto coloring the pieces. We used Gelatos because they are very kid friendly and fun! Then we also drew on them with PITT Journaling pens! This was about all they could sit and do... then they were off to something else! Well, at least we completed a couple projects with the kit.
Here are some of our finished projects. I tried to get them to hold them up for me but they were too busy playing another game. It was tons of fun to create with this kit and I know we will save the rest of the pieces for a rainy day this summer and create more art!
To win this Classic Wood Craft kit and a Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft prize pack (Blue Gelatos pack, and Journaling PITT Artist Pens), leave a comment here about what you'd make with this kit and who you would share it with.The winner will be announced on May 10th.
Hello blogging friends! Today, I have a mixed media altered canvas to share with you using several fun products from Faber-Castell DesignMemory Craft, JustRite Papercraft® and Spellbinders Creative Arts™.
Here is the 8 x 8 Paris canvas. I love how this canvas turned out! It was so easy to create and I have a step-by-step tutorial to share with you.
Hi everyone, Mou here and welcome to the fifth 'Take the Challenge' of 2013!
I feel that creative challenges help us experiment and learn new things. Challenges can help us get unstuck from creative ruts. They can also inspire us to create in ways we would not have thought of otherwise. So, I decided to take a few creative challenges myself and thought you might like to play along.
Every month, on the first Monday, I'll post a challenge and my take on it. You'll have 12 days to take this on. Leave a comment to the challenge post with a link to your creation based on that challenge. The following Monday, we will pick TWO winners randomly from among the readers who participated in that week's challenge. And the winners will get a Gelato Gift Set prize from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®.
April showers bring May flowers. Whether you have acres to garden or a small window sill, plenty of time to garden or none at all, whether you are a pro gardener or someone like me who struggles to keep even small potted plants alive, May is the time for blooms and gardens.
Today's challenge is about making something inspired by gardens.
I'm inspired by the colors of a garden as well as the shapes of petals and leaves and here's what I created--a card made with some of my favorite Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft products.
I colored watercolor paper with Gelatos® (MANGO, BANANA, WATERMELON, AQUA DOLCE, LIME, & PISTACHIO).
When dry, I doodled a flower with Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK.
Don't forget to share your challenge creations with us... just leave a comment to the challenge post at the Design Memory Craft blog with link to your project image(s) by Friday, 5/17 and we will pick TWO winners randomly to win these.
The prizes for this challenge are: TWO sets of Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils in the colors of your choice.
Don't forget to check back on Monday, 5/20 to see if YOU won!

Hi everyone! It’s Katie with my last post for Design Memory Craft as part of their guest design team. Soon you will get to see projects from the new guest design team who I’m sure will have some amazing projects to inspire you with!
This project is a fun one. If you love doodling + shoes, you’re going to love it. I doodle on everything and I have recently started drawing on canvas shoes. For this pair I used Stamper Big Brush Pens to draw and color my designs. Here’s how:
Hi everyone, it's Anita and today I want to share a layout with you. I only had two small photos of my girls from this Easter (this was pre-digital era) so I wanted to use a lot of color and texture, but not neccesarily a ton of "stuff" that would overshadow my photos.
I started by using Gelatos® to color modeling creme and applied it to my background paper using a stencil.
Beautiful projects, Congrats to the winners!
Beautiful! love the colors!
WOW! You are so talented and creative with these products. Amazing!
The woodgrain technique is amazing! It looks so realistic! I am loving the batik effect, too, and you make me want to try it. :) I love how you showed the woodgrain with the flower for another look. Fabulous projects!
