Beach fun and watercolors - a match made in heaven

Captured moments detail 2

Hi it's Beck Beattie here again with a fun way to embellish your projects with some fun and colourful flowers.  Summer is just around the corner in the Northern Hemisphere and while it is nearly winter where I am, I'm still trying to live in the warm weather by scrapbooking those summer holiday memories.  

For this layout I thought some bright an colourful beach flowers would be just perfect.  I had the perfect flower die set in the Spellbinders Blooms three die set, but really needed them two toned for the perfect effect.  I decided to reach for my Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils for the perfect accent, and here is a video to show you how


Hope you enjoyed seeing how I turned the plain die cut flowers into flowers that pop with a little help from Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils.  Here are some close up pics of the coloured flowers.

Magic is in the Air!


Jen Matott here to share a page with you! My son has always been fascinated with the idea of magic.. when he was around 3 years old, he would think that he could make water disappear!  It was one hot day playing in the sprinkler when he thought he could do a little magic.  He grabbed some water from the sprinkler and would open his hand as if he did a magic trick!  So cute!

Mix & Match With Metallics


Hi! Jeanne Streiff here today!

I love the look of metallics on a neutral background. This look is very easy to achieve with Mix & Match products from Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®! I found this old picture of my family and I thought it would be fun to do a single picture 8" x 8" vintage scrapbook page.

The little one is me... so I guess I'm a little vintage myself.

Gelatos color my world!

Friends together layout

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

Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® Whipped Spackle

Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® Gesso

Faber-Castell® Design Memory Crafts® Glaze

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!

Thanks so much for stopping by.
