We are mourning the loss of Count Anton-Wolfgang von Faber-Castell (7 June 1941 - 21 January 2016).

We have lost a model businessman, whom we both admired as an extraordinary entrepreneur and a farsighted personality, and who above all was a role model as a fellow human being to us.

Beautiful Stencil Storage!


Hi Everyone

I can't believe this is my penultimate post for this seasons Guest Design Team.  Time definitely flies when you are having fun and I have definitely had fun.  Todays tutorial was inspired by my first tutorial when I noticed that the pocket pages in my Christmas Album were a perfect fit for my new Faber- Castell Design Memory Craft® stencils.  I thought it would be a pretty project as well as a functional one.  I know you are all just like me trying to find storage solutions that work and if they look good too….yay!!!

Although this mini album is constructed in the same way as the Christmas Album there are differences in the page construction to create all the pockets you will need to make to store your stencils.  You can adapt the pocket and album sizes given below to suit other stencils you may have in your collection.

Bible Journaling with Penny


Hello crafty friends...Penny here today. When I was first approached about Bible journaling, I didn't think I could do it. I mean really...drawing, doodling, marking up a Bible was kind of like burning a, but just not something I would do. And besides, what if I messed it up. Then I decided that everyone makes mistakes, but a true artist can figure out how to cover it up and make it look great! So....... you jump into the good book with your first stamp and you are hooked.
