Acrylic brooches with Sarah

Hello crafty friends, Sarah here with my first blog post on the Memory Maze Lasercuts design team. I am excited to show you some of the brooches cards I have been making and first up is ones using some of the amazing acrylic pieces from the online store.

The deer heads come in many of different acrylic colours as seen in the photo above. As pictured, there is red, dark blue, purple and a wooden veneer one also. There is some new acrylic colours coming to Memory Maze Lasercuts, so stay tuned for those also. They can be purchased in packs of 5 and are online here.

Memory Maze makes it easy for the creation of these brooches, offering packs of brooch pins in packs of ten. This is a cost effective way of buying in bulk. Check them out online here.

The stamp used with these cards is the new "You're deer to me" stamp available here. There are many new stamps that have arrived, so stay tuned for a blog post about this coming up soon!

Some of my other favorite acrylic pieces are the pussy cat and the unicorn. Here are some brooch cards I have made with them using a variety of stamps from my stash.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my brooch cards (some may say I am crazy for them!) and stay tuned for future posts where I share some made with the Memory Maze Lasercuts wooden veneer pieces.

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.

Bright and Fun

Splashes of colour

Hi Everybody, I am starting the year off with a bright layout.
My beautiful niece loves colour so I thought it would suit her photo.

The background is done with high colour embossing powders from Ranger (Wendy Vecche).
I used the clear embossing dauber as the splatz medium and sprinkled on the embossing powders and heat set them. One colour at a time to keep them separate.

I have used a wonderful title from Memory maze 

and one of the smaller words packs for the word

Memory maze have frames galore but I used this one

All chipoboard was painted with Alchemy metallique Paints.

Thanks for looking

Our Story-by Leanne Nankervis

Hi Everyone!

Leanne here to share with you today, Well its a New Year with new projects to share using Memory Maze products.

Our Story

Today I'm sharing a layout using some of the new Memory Maze design products, I created a background using some Dylusion paints, along with some stamping and layering. I primed my chipboard with gesso, then watered down my dylusion paints to colour my chipboard pieces. My photo is of my family, we had a family photo shoot late last year in the Botanical Gardens.

Double heart frame with feathers, I painted main frame white then used watered down Dylusion paints on my feathers, I added detail to the feathers with a fine sharpie marker, then added some art ingredient beads for decoration.

Our Story Title I painted white then used the same technique for the feathers then added some gelato's to deepen the colours.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today, till next time
Happy Crafting!

Aunt Canvas with Candy

Hi Everyone Candy here with my latest mixed media canvas.
This one is for an order for a friend
from her Granddaughter to her Aunt...
Just love this verse

I'm not just an
I'm a big cup of 
Covered in Awesome
with a splash of sassy
and a 
dash of crazy

I firstly applied white gesso to the canvas.
Then applied the modelling paste and the mask all over.
Let this dry
Apply your sprays I used coffee and turquoise around the canvas
I used a spray water bottle to dilute the colour
and don't forget to dry between colours or you will
make mud...
It took me a while until I was happy with the colours
just don't forget it will dry lighter.

I glued the plastic frame using a good strong glue
My canvas had a cut out piece where you place the photo
This is where I glued my frame.
If your frame is glossy give a rub down with sandpaper
to roughen so the gesso and sprays will take.

I covered my chipboard pieces with gesso
then using versamark then my embossing enamel
cover well.

Then place your flowers, chipbaord pieces, leaves etc where
you want them, then glue down.
I added some gold around my canvas just to give it a highlight.
I also went over my verse with a black permanent pen to make stand out.

Merry Christmas tags with Tania

Hello lovely crafters, and a big Merry Christmas to you all!!
I have a quick and easy project for you today. These cute, hanging hearts make great tree decorations or gift tags, you can personalize them to suit and add any embellishments to compliment.
I used this stencil from Memory Maze which is a favourite of mine!!!

Mini Stencils divided heart 100 x 100mm min buy 5 priced as ea

I started by sponging some Distress Stain in Gold and Silver, through the stencil onto white cardstock. 

Then I cut the hearts out using a die and my Die cutting machine.

To finish, I embossed a Merry Christmas sentiment in black, added some gold washi tape strips and a punched, gold star.

I have some gorgeous gold and silver twine in my stash, so used these together to make the hangers.
All done, so quick and easy. You could pump out a few of these in one sitting, they make great last minute tags!

Thanks for looking and enjoy your Christmas!!!

Layers of chipboard with Tracey Henly

I used this cool stencil for the background and sprayed some glimmer through it.

I absoluetly love 3D chipboard, the more layers I can stack the better I love it. So this birds and branches frame kit was my starting point for this layout.  I added the fancy flourishes to the top and bottom as well to build it up, but as I was gluing it on I curved the straight edge around to match the frame. Finished off with the cute little butterflies.

The title "B fearlessly Authentic" was all one piece but it didn't work well that way on this layout, so don't be scared to cut them up and make them fit peeps.

All chipboard has been painted with Prima alchelmy sparks paints.

Finished off with some prima and petaloo flowers.
