Good morning lovely artistic and creative friends. This is Rachel here today and I'm so sad that this is my last Faber Castell® Design Memory Craft® post as a Guest Designer. The past 4 months have been so inspiring, and have pushed me creatively. I wish it didn't have to end! Thank you Naoko and the team for making this an awesome experience!
With February just around the corner, it's time to get moving on those Valentine's Day projects! Today I'm sharing a sweet Valentine treat bag, perfect for filling up with candies or love notes ;)
Hello my crafty friends! Linsey here today sharing my last guest designer post for this incredible company Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®. I've enjoyed my time with you all so very much and thank you for the amazing experience! Now, on to my project! I was inspired by a children's construction paper craft I saw on the internet 2 years ago and decided this was the perfect occasion to finally try it myself. My translation is this 9x11 mixed media canvas panel that definitely cured my early winter blues!
I really loved creating this one and here's how it came together. I started by laying down 6 shades of Gelatos® on watercolor paper then spritzed with water and blended with my fingers. This will be the bird.
Hey everyone, Lisa with you today and I have a fun minimalist mixed media Valentine card to share. Most people tend to think that with mixed media it's all about tons and tons of layers, right? Well, with this card I really wanted to try to try to keep it as simple as possible BUT also showcase some of our amazing products without making the card super thick. This card isn't hard to make at all and is FLAT! So no extra postage!! Woohoo!
Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a set of chalkboard valentines. I started this project with a set of wood veneer hearts and used Chalkboard Paint, a Stamper's Big Brush Pen and PITT®Artist Pens to add color. I added dimensional metallic accents with the NEW Texture Gems. These valentines are quick and easy to create and fun to personalize!

Hi everyone! Lisa here with you today. And I'm happy to be back after being gone at CHA. It's always so fun to be there showing all the exciting new products for everyone, but it sure is awesome to be home.
So, now that I'm home I thought it would be fun to share a few of the new products with YOU! Just a little card, but it will give you an idea of what you have to look forward to. :)
Happy New Year everyone!! I hope your start of 2015 has been a great one so far! One final post from me before this design term is up! I created a cover for a mixed media journal. The word 'Inspire' has to be one of my favourite words! I am always inspired by art, and others so it was fitting to have it on the front of this journal cover.

I have checked these out on numerous occasions but haven't purchased ... waiting on more selection in my local store. I have begun Bible Journaling and I would love to use this product in this new endeavor. Thank you for such a great product as well as a chance to win.
