Bright and beautiful board books ,are the key for September.

  My next two pieces for September are board books.
Those that know me know how much I love books and off the page projects.I have used one of the  book kits to complete these projects.
There is a lot of ink and color used in the preparation of these books. I wanted them to be bright and it is important that you enjoy making them as well as the finished product.

This book is approx 7 inches  and makes quite a statement
The central pages of the book can be  made of paper or card with a unique system to allow little or no pressure on the spine its self.

This is the Kit just put book in the search bar to find it 

I have used 60 and fabulous, these come in most ages. If you can't find it email us and we can make one for you

As with most books embellishments,ribbons and add-ons make a fabulous presentation.

Well who almost forgot to post their September Blog pieces ??

I have just has the most fun,working with the newest 12 x 12 in the range. Lots of circles, flags and flowers. I have only used around half on this layout, the other half to come later.Someone here turned two, and what an excuse for a party.

Called Magic Moment Circles, I have used every piece in the two pages I have completed. I have even covered the circles with flags and flowers after removing them. Nothing wasted.
I have covered each piece with suitable papers, inking the edges to give the effect of depth.

Each of the circles have been covered and the inside circles I allowed a little extra paper on the outside to allow for it to be inserted under the circle that sits over the top

I covered the flags and inked the flowers using brads for centre effects.
Lots of Jute and some buttons,cut out flowers and leaves, finish this page off beautifully.
Can not wait to meet this little sweetie only weeks to go.

Springtime reveal | Alicia Barry |

This month the design team have all been having a play with some pretty little birdhouses that Sally has designed. I love birdhouses, so I couldn't wait to jump into this one...especially with the spring weather we are now having.

Altered Birdhouse
The birdhouse kit itself is just the house seen at the top of my project, but I'm not good at sticking to the rules, so I decided to extend it a little by mounting it on top of a metal candle holder I got from Lifeline.

 I used a Martha Stewart edge punch for the fancy edge.
 The kit does include the cute little bird. This is actually just the inner section of the bird.
 ...and lots of Memory Maze flowers.  I used a picket fence with a vintage gate  wrapped around the base of the birdhouse.

Memory Maze supplies:
Birdcage small approx 5 inches tall
Vintage gateway22x18 sold 3\'s
Fence Wrought Iron

Princess for a day
Next up is a pretty pic of my daughter in a princess dress. 

I have used the title and the sweet little butterflies and crown from the chipboard pack. 

I coated the chipboard in ink, then covered in diamond stickles.

Snow Day
Ok, this is obviously not a spring project. This was from our recent ski trip. 

 I have used a few different pieces on this layout, but treated them all in same way to help create cohesion.

 I first painted all the pieces with distress ink, then added sparkle with diamond stickles, then while wet, sprinkled some white flocking over the time to represent snow.

Memory Maze supplies:

Hello all and welcome back to Memory Maze blog.  Today I have a few projects to share with you.  Lots of fun to be had.  So grab a cuppa and enjoy.

* * * * * * * * * * 


This month the design team have all been sent a birdhouse.  I believe there is different ones that come in all different sizes and styles.

I covered my entire birdhouse in paper and then glued together.

I then added embellishments to pretty it up.  I have inked and stamped a cog for the door mat.

Added a number of flowers and some wee birds.
* * * * * * * * * *

Here you can see I have added some texture pasted and spray to grunge it up.

Used more cogs for decoration

and sprayed with ink to finish it off.

I made this journal completely using the techniques I learnt from Finnbair.  If you ever get to do some of her classes. DO IT!  they are some much fun.

I have used a number of random Memory Maze micro chipboard bits to complete this journal.

I love layers and I loved making this card.  full of lots of layers and chippie.  I have had this winded dress form for a while and was happy how this has turned out!
