A little bit of Memory Maze Chipboard Magic~ DT Share by Donna O'leary

Hello all...  So glad to be back to share another fun lot of projects I have created.  Our theme this month is Easter!  So I have a hopping project to start of with and then a special gift I made my daughter for her 21st.  I have also created a layout to share,  so go grab a coffee/tea and relax.   ENJOY


I went to spotlight the other day and my daughter picked up this wee basket to put her so called shopping in,  I had to giggle at her, she is such a cutie-pie.  She had been so good that I decided that she could bring the basket home.  Later that night I sunk into her room and borrowed it.  Much to her delight the next day she got a bit of a surprise. I applied lace around the outer ring and then used some lovely Memory Maze(MM) flowers and MM chipboard to decorate it.

I embossed the little chicken in a pastel yellow Wow Embossing Powder (WEP) and a pink glitter WEP for the larger eggs.

I spaced my flowers out and in-between each flower I added and embossed MM chipboard egg.

Inside the basket I made a Easter card,  this time using a cute bunny chipboard.  I had two of these so I cut the bunny out if the second one and placed it on top of the other bunny to give it some height.  I embossed the bunny with a very cool white puff WEP which made the bunny look fluffy.

I added some stunning wee bright flowers from MM and a MM grass chipboard.  I coloured the grass with Gelatos

and again embossed my wee eggs with some glitter embossing powders.  Ruby loves them both.

I love making gifts for the special people in my life,  I found the middle jar in a op ship and thought it would be really good to make something with it.  My first job was to remove all the labels of the three jars.  I then completely covered the whole jar with versa mark so my embossing powder would stick.  I then got the top end of a little paint brush ans doodled in the embossing powder.  Once I had the desired effect I heat set the embossing powder.

I was over the moon when Sally (owner of Memory Maze) said that she will be stocking flowers,  as you can tell I love them!  I got a huge parcel of some lovely blooms!  A must have for any scrappers stash.

To decorate the jars with the flowers and and old necklace I used a hot glue gun.  Very handy and fast.  Just perfect for the job!

I  found a Prima butterfly that was the perfect match for my project.

Two more close ups of the details

I am happy to report she loved this present and it now sits proudly in her bedroom.

I fell in love with this photo of Amber-Leigh.  It was taken at her big sisters 21st and she thought the props I had brought for the photo booth were cool and wore them all night. Lol apart from myself and Sammy I don't think I actually got any photos of  them :-) 

This layout is full of MM goodies, hidden in this photos is a clock, bird and leaves plus a number of MM flowers.  I coloured the MM with metallic rub-ons.

More of the stunning flowers MM now has in stock.


For the banner I inked the outer edge with distress ink and then coloured the  words with a black marker.  For the flower vine I used a mixture of gelatos and a black marker for the detail.

again the same as above for the word banner and a mixture of run-on for the three birds.

I love those buds...  I need so many more of those as they are great fillers for projects.
