Video Tutorial: Chalkboard Entertaining, Part 1


Hello Everyone!!! It's Tiffany here and I've started a fun series of Video Tutorials featuring our new Textural Accent medium, Chalkboard Paint! The series, Chalkboard Entertaining, shows various ways a clever crafter like yourself can apply chalkboard paint to the art of entertaining and decorating! It's amazing how all of the other Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® mediums work with this trendy paint!

First up, I'll be showing you how to jazz up your drinkware:


The project uses PITT® Pastel Pencils, Art GRIP® Color Pencils, Metallic PITT Pens, and Paper Crafters™ Crayons with the dry Chalkboard Paint Textural Accent!


I hope you enjoyed this week's installment of Chalkboard Entertaining! Stay tuned for more episodes in February!


Girl Silhouette Card


Hi there! Wishing you crafters a happy, creative 2014! May this year bring a whole new adventure! :) Sharm here to share a card I put together using Gelatos® and  Essential PITT Artist Pens BLACK. I can't believe that the GD stint with Design Memory Craft Faber-Castell is coming to an end  with this last post.

It has been wonderful working on this team alongside extremely talented ladies, using the amazing products that Faber-Castell painstakingly creates for us crafters!

Having lovely Design Memory Craft followers like you leave  kind word or two has only made this GD stint more memorable and I hope the projects I've shared with you have inspired in some way! :)

Thank you for an awesome opportunity! Without further ado, here's the card I made

Well I am super excited to share  my finished banner for the Banners of Hope project "Never Lose Hope" with you today!I had lots of fun playing with all the different mediums, Gelatos, PITT Artist Pens, Pearl Pens, Gesso, Modeling paste... I even added a few surprise elements like a banner made from the glitter stack paper by DCWV, a handmade ribbon flower and a couple of flower gems. The tiny flowers in her hair are Heidi Swapp bling. This is is being donated to the Banners of Hope project which will be on display at CHA, then at  Charity Wings Art Center in San Diego,then in a traveling show to various children, veteran & senior hospitals. I think they will like it, I was happy how it turned out.
