Just a bias here haha

I have used the chipboard word Princess and the oval swirl from the 

I have painted them both with white gesso. Then when they are dry cover with clear glue and then sprinkle your glitter over the top. Let this dry completely or your will have glitter everywhere. I mixed bublegum and Raspberry glitter together to get the colour I wanted.

All pretty in white.

My post today is all pretty in white. 

It is for a special girl that will be married in a few weeks. Wishing her all of the best wishes in the world for many years of happiness.

The sentiment pretty much says it all. Move over daddy.


I have used several sheets of white shimmer card stock and added creative edges to give the page some dimension.

 The sentiment is available for both boys and girls. I have firstly painted with Gesso and them added white glitter to the entire piece, for a fantastic effect.
This was added to a sheet of chipboard  for display at her wedding 

I have handmade flowers from Lace and Hug Soft ribbons and added bling for effect. 
Lots of pearls ,flourishes ,feathers and lace panel to compliment.

Celebrate Love | Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah back with you and today I am sharing a new layout with you using some gorgeous Memorymaze chipboard!

I used only big size heart frame on my layout, I painted it with white acrylic paint and used the Crate Paper Hello Love papers to back the hearts. 

I also used lots of the Crate Paper Hello Love collection to help embellish my layout. I inked the small chippie hearts with a pink Versamark ink pad.

I also added the chippie word celebrate and inked the word in the same pink ink I did the hearts in!

That's all from me today! I hope I have inspired you to get out your Memorymaze chipboard and create! Perhaps you need some new chipboard? Check out the Memorymaze store for all the amazing chippie pieces! 

Happy creating!

To Come Alive - Art Journal Page by Elisa Ablett

Hi Crafter's,

Elisa here from the Design Team again with a colourful Art Journal page featuring some lovely Memory Maze Chipboard and a grunge stencil.

I wanted to achieve a different look with this Art Journal Page with the colour and texture only in the background whilst keeping the gorgeous Chipboard white, clean and simple.

To achieve this look i gesso'd the chipboard pieces white and laid them aside to dry. I have found a wonderful gesso in a spray can and is a life saver!!

I then tore strips from the Newspaper and included a title of To Come Alive which i pieced together from the Newspaper, I then gesso'd over the top of the newspaper to provide a bit of texture.

Then i used Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts and a splatter technique, splatter drips and drops of the gorgeous shimmer dusts which you have diluted with a small amount of water all over the areas in which your chipboard will sit.

I then splattered Bling Colourblast Shimmer Spray as well. I stamped several texture stamps and flower stamps over the top of the colour and then using a palette knife i spread Bling Colourblast Texture Paste over a Memory Maze Stencil.

Here are some close ups :-) 

Here are some of the gorgeous products i used from

Baby Photo Frame

Welcome again everyone. 
Today I am bringing you a tutorial for Memory Maze
I have only just got my very first Grand baby, her name is Zarna Rose.
So very proud luv her to bits.

I have had this frame in my stash for a while.
I am quite sure most of you can relate to that lol.
This stand was blue and I have a grand daughter 
so I painted it with white acrylic paint
 I gave this two coats and before the second coat was dried
 I sprinkled the sparkle embossing powder over the top and heat set it.

Using the scrolls, the scroll along the bottom, circle and word
I covered with white gesso
 then I mixed the pink and the shabby white embossing powders together
 and covered them all well and heat set again.

Glue all together including the flowers along the bottom using a good strong glue
I placed a photo behind the circle and glued the word onto the front.
I matted the other photos using white cardstock
and placed onto the stand.
