Hello by Suzanne Franin

Hey Everyone Suzanne here

Yes it's another owl but I can't help it I just love them and this one is very cute LOL 
This weeks project for the Memory Maze Blog I used a Printers Tray they are so pretty and you can do just about anything with them
I love how they have the different shaped sections in them and if you really want to you can cut some of the chipboard out to fit what you need in



On each feather I used a different stencil using modelling paste as you can see (links below) just to add some interest rather than leaving them plain


On the background of the Printers Tray I used modelling paste with the Wire Stencil for some dimension and texture



On the back ground of the I used Colour Shimmer Dust Lollipop




With the feathers I sprayed (I have these colours already made up as I seem to use them a lot) some Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust Cobalt, Lollipop and Sunflower they all mixed and made a few different colours which I think added extra interest and is also what I used on the Boho Skull and Feathers and lace border too  


You can see the textures on the feathers


This feather arrow was from the Boho Skull and Feathers and I use Colour Paste Sunshine on the larger feather
I painted the outside of the Printers Tray with Jade Impasto 


This is one of the Acrylic words that Memory Maze make they also have a whole range of different shapes as well 
The Hello also comes in chipboard I love this font


I won a prize from joining in at White with 1's monthly challenge from The Resin Rainbow and this gorgeous lace border was in the pack it was a pale pink and it didn't really go with my project so I  did the same thing as I did with my feathers and the colour shimmer dusts 


And of course there had to be and owl somewhere
And to finish the project off I went around and added Silver Micro Beads with some Helmar Super-Tac Glue

Hello (but acrylic)

Dream-Believe-Explore


Hi Everyone!
 Leanne here to share another project with you today using Memory Maze Products.

Dream, Believe, Explore, Happiness.

Today I'm sharing a layout of my daughter Alannah, taking on one of our weekends away camping up at Shepparton. Today I am using papers from Kaisercraft, flowers from Blossom Tree Creations, Art ingredient beads and few other embellishments. My star is my Memory Maze chipboard Droplet Flourish piece, I love these they are just so gorgeous on their own, or part of an embellishment cluster.


I used one of the Memory Maze Droplets, I embossed the Main part with Tim Holtz distress Embossing powder. The feathers I painted in gesso and used several colours of Gelatos with a water brush to blend in the colours. Once dried I used a feather stamp with archival ink over the chipboard to add texture.

Once my chipboard piece was finished, I assembled my dream catcher embellishment over the droplet.

Part of the Family- By Leanne Nankervis


Hi Everyone Leanne here to share another project with you today, using Memory Maze Laser cut products. Today I'm using some of the new chipboard titles from Memory Maze, which is part of the family. And the Christmas berry sprigs, which I have used just as green foliage.
Part of the Family
Well this is our kitty Estelle! is her name, but she usually gets called scruff most of the time. This is her sunning herself on our window ledge, where she likes to sit during the day. Yes she is an inside cat! but occasionally will go outside for a little while. For my layout I have used some new 49 Market papers and some lovely flowers from D-lish Scraps and Blossom Tree Creations. And of course my chipboard piece's from Memory Maze.


For my Title I used a couple of Lindys stamp Gang embossing powders to colour my title.
For the foliage pieces I painted them with gesso, and used oil pastels to cover the foliage using a water brush.









Part of the family  Script  min buy 3. 165 x 80mm

'Magical' by Sarah Rosse

Hello crafty friends, I have a bright and colourful layout for you today using one of the 12 x 12 inch dream catcher sets by Memory Maze.
This layout is being taught as a class at Scrap 2 Relax this afternoon so I wont go in to too much detail. The background was created using acrylic paints and a variety of Memory Maze stencils. Once the background was complete, this was added to a piece of white cardstock to really make the colour pop.
The 'Indian feather hearts' Mythical dream catcher was used for this layout. Firstly covered with gesso and then black acrylic paint. Prima wax was applied to the top of it to give the end result. I just love it!
The two feathers were gold embossed as well as the title word 'Magical' embossed with white embossing powder. I used a photo of my son for this layout - the effect that the portrait mode had for this shot kind of makes it look magical.
If you are interested in any of the Memory Maze products, be sure to contact your local craft store or Memory Maze for your local stockist where we can place our local sales reps in contact with them.

18 by Suzanne Franin


Hey Everyone

Well my baby turned 18 this month so I made him a sign in book where his friends took a photo 

with him and then wrote him a message along with it 
I didn't do the cover till after the party and everyone had signed so that it didn't get ruined 



I started by painting all my chipboard and straws with black gesso
Then used the Checkerplate stencil with some modelling paste for some texture on the background


Then repainted it with the black gesso again


I painted all the chipboard I used with black gesso 
Then I stuck the Clock with Cogs on I had to cut it in a few places to fit through the rings
I liked the way it over hung on the book it made it look different not just a standard book


Around the Checkerplate stencilled area I used the Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Brush Marker in Gold for a little sparkle


Then on all the Mini Clocks and the hands on the Bike, Cogs, Clock Moustache I used gold leaf because at his party he had black and gold


 

I used the Story Alphabet for his name and the numbers 18



Then the little frame that is around his photo was from the Mini Clocks It was around one of the clocks (he's posing in this photo it was the day he tried on his suit for his sister's wedding and I love the photo)
