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.
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!
Hello to everyone, Leonie here. Welcome to my last blog post as a Guest Designer for Design Memory Craft®.

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.
Hello Leonie here today. It's 2014, which had me thinking about what things my family is looking forward to this year. So I decided to document some of the big events and new experiences my family expect to go through next year and to also wander what unexpected things may be on the horizon for us.
I've used Gelatos® to create circular designs on my background and added shading and contrast with Pitt® Pastel pencils.
This is a video of how I created the background.
I hope you've found something to inspire you here to get cretive with your Gelatos and Pastel Pencils.
A scrapbook page about my little boy, who was once very timid around new people, makes for an adorable reminder of his youth. I wanted a playful but pretty page to showcase this adorable photo.
Starting with kraft cardstock, I used an old hotel card to spread Textural Accents Gesso. Once dry, I used Squid Ink colored Gelato from the 50's Diner set on a craft mat and picked up the color with the foam applicator that comes with the set. I applied this through a dotted stencil to create grey dots.
Hi everyone, Tatiana Yemelyanenko is here and I would like to share my new tutorial using Gelatos®. I created layout with photo from last year Valentine's day. So I decided to use as a background watercolor hearts.
Hello there crafters! Sharm here today to share with you a layout I put together using Gelatos® . This time, I've opted for bright, vibrant shades as opposed to my usual choice of subtle hues. I've also used the Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK for some doodling around the layout.
