A challenge was issued to create a gift item for $5 or under! I can't turn down a good challenge so I dug up items that I already had: scraps of canvas, stamps, beads, and a bit of lace. The result was a pair of artistic bracelet cuffs. One for me to keep and one to give! That's a win-win gift if you ask me!

Hey there sweet crafty friends Rita Barakat
here! Can you believe it's December already?
It's Christmastime...time for making ornaments!
We were asked to prepare an inexpesive project (under $5.00) and this is probably less than that depending on what you have on hand- everything I used was already in my stash.
So lets gather up some supplies!

Hello, Leonie here today.
I know it's getting closer to Christmas and we're seeing some fabulous Christmas craft ideas here on the Design Memory Craft blog but before I get busy creating all things Christmas I have a few birthdays that all occur around this time of the year. In a bid to stay organised and knowing that next month is always a busy time I created some quick yet effective cards. I thought why not create the same card but use slightly different techniques to give each card it's own individual touch?
So today I'd like to show you just how versatile Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products can be. I’ve created one card design using three different yet quite simple techniques. As you can see the results are quite different but equally effective and pretty. I put together a collage step by step for each card to show you just how simple it was to create these cards.
Here's the first card I made using Gelatos® and a dry blending technique.

Hello! Kasia Krzymińska here to show you one of my recent art journal pages. This one was made using Gelatos® Colors and PITT® Artist Pens.

everyone, Mieko here today to
share another layout using Gelatos®, PITT® Artist Pens and Art GRIP® Aquarelle
Watercolor Pencils. I was able to create a simple and clean layout using
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft® products. A picture of my teenage daughters
posing together was perfect for this layout.
