Freebie Friday

What's not to like about this Friday?  It's the Friday before the long weekend, it's sunny (at least here in Cleveland where we've been seeing more clouds than sun for the better part of summer), and it's Freebie Friday!

This week's prize is 2 packs of Gelatos ($9.95), a Blue Art GRIP Aquarelle ($11.95), a Mini Journal Board ($4.95), a Gelatos Tool Kit ($11.95), a pack of Essential PITT Artist Pens ($11.95).  

Please note that this giveaway is open to US and international residents.  

Good luck and have a great weekend!  


Mixed Media Journal Page

Hello Everyone!! Isha here sharing with you my last post. I still can't believe that my term is over. It just seems like yesterday I got an email from Naoko :) I am honored to know more about Design Memory Craft, their products, which of coarse are amazing. I met wonderful people here too :)

It was a great journey and with every post I tried and learned something new!

Today, I made my very first Journal page and I feel this Quote by Unity is just PERFECT!

Painting with Paper Crafter Crayons™


Hi everyone! Lisa here with you this beautiful Monday and I have a really cool card and tutorial to share with you today. I had some fun playing around with my Paper Crafter Crayons™ and I thought I'd share with you what I made with them in a video!

First up here's the card that I created for you today.  The entire background is using Paper Crafter Crayons™ and an iron. Yep! Crazy, right? But, it's so easy and a lot of fun. I used Gesso and Gelatos® (in Metallic Violet, Coconut, and Pistachio) to color in the Lotus flower. 

Now, grab a cup of your beverage of choice and enjoy my litle video. :)



This was such a fun card to create!I hope that you will all give it a try, too.

Wishing you all a wonderful week. :)

All supplies listed at the end of the video.  Yay!

Hope your Weekend is off to an AMAZING Start!! =)

WOW~seems like yesterday I got the AMAZING News that I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for the Design Memory Craft Blog!! I felt so honored and I can't believe this is my last post as a Guest Designer!!

I had so many ideas on projects to make, but decided to share some of my tricks and techniques for working in my Mixed Media Journal!! I like to take it with me when I travel and I have all of my Faber-Castell Products stored in containers that make it easy to bring them with me!! I have made a video to share some of my tricks and techniques!! I hope you enjoy!!


Here are some pictures of my Pages and Tag!!

 I share how to use your Stamper's Big Brush Pens to add shading and then use the Artist Pitt Pens to trace and outline the images!! I use Gesso and Gel Medium to cover and seal my pages both before and after adding any images to my Journal!! This makes it easier to fix any mistakes I may make along the way!! =)
