Memory Maze Wedding card with box

Hi everyone welcome to another tutorial from me for April. Today I have made a 5x7 inch card and a decorated box. I am off to our nephews wedding in May and this is just what I needed to make for them both. 

I have started with a 7 3/4 x 6 inch cd/dvd photo mailing box. I bought this from my local Officeworks store. I have covered it inside and out using the Ultimate Craft Magnolia Lane Collection.

I have used two frames and the long pendant heart and a double heart and applied white ink to cover well. You can use gesso, white paint as well. I then used some Distress ink Victoria velvet and a music stamp and stamped over the top of them all. Then carefully applied some dimensional magic over each one.

When they where all dry I inked using the Victorian velvet again around the edges. I have also added flowers and some bling to both

April DT project for Memory Maze


Hello everyone my turn once more showing you all how I created my lovely heart plaque for the wall. I have had this in my stash for a while, you know how it is you buy it thinking yes I will use this one day. And for sure I have. My niece has opened a Beauty Boutique and I thought this would look lovely hanging on her wall. 

I didn't do anything to the heart just left it as is.
I cut with a die borrowed from a friend the letters for the word Welcome from a piece of 12x12 inch chipboard. And using  the wrought iron flourishes and a heart, give all these a good coat of gesso.

I cut the largest swirl so I now have a large and a big one. 
The three swirls and the letters I have coated with Lindy's embossing powder(Chateau Rose) I gave them about three coats each to give them a good look. The heart I coated with Lindy's embossing powder( Bougainvillia red teal )and toned it down with some of the pink I used on the swirls and letters. 

I had some white leaves which I sprayed with Sprinkles Cacyus green spray and also the 2 smaller flowers I sprayed with Cherub pink glimmermist. I added a few white pearl sprays to set this off.

Off the Rails April Mood Board

For the month of April Memory Maze is once again on e of the sponsors. So we the Memory Maze design team have been given the opportunity to complete the mood board and we have to use watercolours on our layout.

 I have done an 8x8 inch page as I have been given a lot of photos from a friend of mine of her daughter, who has tragically lost her in a accident at home.
I firstly started with a white piece of cardstock and covered it with clear gesso, so I could use the watercolour paints on it. This is to stop the watercolours from soaking into the paper.
Ihave used some older Bo Bunny Primrose collection papers, ribbons, flowers and plenty of bling.
