Time Flies - Scrapbook Layout

Hey there! Melissa here with you today with my new DT layout for Memory Maze.


For this layout I have used Uniquely Creative's Roots & Wings card stock. I used a doily stencil and sprinkled some peach coloured embossing powder over the top of it before heat setting it.



I used Mintay's 'Day by Day' collection and attached some of them with foam tape to create dimensional layers.



I used silver heat foil for the floral chipboard piece and liquid pearls for the chipboard title.

I also added some Autumn Lane flowers.


To finish off this layout I sprinkled some silver micro beads over and around the flowers.

I hope you liked my latest creation. I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration. Until then...happy crafting!

Steampunk Journal Page

 I have used a Stamperia Tissue image on top of a painted background using Art by Marlene paints Sand,Tabacco,Tuscan,Kermit just slapped down to give some colour. Then Memory Maze cog stencil to give some depth. I then added some clocks & mechanisms from two different Cut apart sheets & built them up on foam tape.

Journalling tags



 I have been making Journalling tags for my Junk Journals ( I was never going to get into JJ’s). I have cut a 8” x 8” patterned paper in half, then using a mini 4x4 hearts stencil along with Dots & Stuff & Dot Grunge made my background markings. I found a large flower die cut in my stash that I added under my photo that was also cut out & layered on top. I also found the titles in my stash. The tab on the top is a piece of lace curtain that is stapled on. The back is a piece of tea dyed paper for journalling.

Enjoy

Time Flies - Scrapbook Layout

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! Welcome back to the Memory Maze blog for our first post for 2022.

It's Melissa A here today with my new layout, I hope you like it.



For this layout I have used card stock from the beautiful 3Quarter Designs' 'Whispered Memories' collection.

I used the smaller card stock pieces from this collection as my photo matts and I distressed them before machine stitching the edges.


I used lace trimming as a border for my photo and tucked some other lace pieces around my photo as well.

I used embossing powders on the chipboard pieces.


I created some flower clusters using Autumn Lane's handmade flowers and then I added some silver glitter paint to them to make them sparkle.



To finish off this layout, I sprinkled some art stones and blue micro beads over and around the flowers and attached some loose white thread.

I also attached a lace trimming border to the card stock to give it a more vintage look.

I hope you liked my first layout for 2022. I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration.

Hey there crafty people!

Welcome back to the Memory Maze blog. Melissa A here with you today with my last Design Team project for 2021!

I went a little steampunk with this layout, I hope you like it.


I have used the awesome 'Gizmo Escapades' collection from 3Quarter Designs for this layout.


I did some background stenciling using white gesso.


I heat foiled the large chipboard clock and painted the chipboard title.


I layered the fussy cut elements around my photo using mounting tape on some of them for dimension.


And I created some layered flower clusters around my photo.


I hope you found some inspiration from this layout for your own projects.

That's all from me for this year, thank you so much for your support and I hope I have inspired you at one stage or another with my creations.

I will be back very soon in Early January with some more crafty inspiration, until then...happy holidays, stay safe and happy crafting!

{Good Times}

Hey there crafty friends!

Melissa A here today sharing my latest project created for Memory Maze Lasercuts.


For this layout I have used card stock from 3Quarter Designs' 'Beach House' collection and I tore along some of the lines, distressed and inked them.

I then attached some gauze behind the ripped sections and then attached some light yellow card stock over them as a backing piece.



I used a half piece of a butterfly frame I had left over from a previous layout and I heat foiled it with a bright blue foil.

I heat embossed the floral chipboard frame with a bright red embossing powder.

I used some green/gold embossing enamel on both the bubble background chipboard, as well as on the title.



I fussy cut elements from Mintay's 'Berrylicious' collection and arranged them around my photo, using mounting tape on some of them to create dimensional layers.


I layered up some Autumm Lane flowers to create small clusters and tucked in some leaf branches within them.


To finish off, I sprinkled some small art stones over and around the flowers.

I hope you liked my Summer inspired layout and found some inspiration from it for your future projects.

I will be back again very soon with some more crafty inspiration, until then...happy crafting!
