Decorated Photo Frame

Welcome again to another tutorial for Memory Maze
Today I had to do a quick present for a wedding I was going to.
So I dived into my stash and pulled out this 8 x 10 inch fancy photo frame.

I pulled the frame apart and painted the frame itself with some white gesso.
When dry I gently applied some gold rub n buff with my finger over the edges of the frame.
I selected a few different chipboard pieces, swirls, butterflies and a large heart.
I covered them with white gesso, then applied embossing powder to all of them. 
Then using a strong glue glued the chipboard pieces and flowers to the frame.

Fishing Extraordinaire

Hello once again today I am bringing you my latest tutorial for Off the Rails
I have created my layout using the Rustic and soft mood board

Thank you to our sponsors

Tania Ridgwell

Memory Maze

Firstly I covered the background paper with clear gesso. 
When it was dry I marked with a pencil where I wanted to place my photo. 
You can erase the pencil marks out when you have finished with them.

Using a netting mask and texture paste
 apply around where your photo is going to be placed.
Let dry 
I have used scraps of paper stagger them in different places under your photo
 when you are happy tape together.
Then tape your photo on and tape to your page. 
Add the embellishments and yes I do put flowers on my boy pages.
My son doesn't mind as he is used to it 

Products used

Kaisercraft pattern papers for background and scrappy pieces
Clear gesso, texture paste and a netting mask
Hessian flowers, shells, cream twine
metal embellishments and funky flair button

Envelope Card - Forever

Hello everyone today I am sharing with you my project for Memory Maze
 I decided to make a card with a difference for you all.
A card with a difference you say, yes a difference.
A girly, grungy envelope card

  1. Using a 12x12 inch piece of cardstock cut to 8x12 inches. Then score at 4 and 8 inches.
  2. Crease your score lines and measure along the top  of your card at 4 inches, mark with a pencil, this will be the middle of your card, then measure 1/2 inch to either side and mark with a pencil so it should be marked at 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 inches. Draw a line with a pencil from the 3 1/2 inch mark back to the left score line, do the same to the other side. ( image 1) Then cut.

Image 1                                                                                 Image 2

4. I have used two pieces of 12x12 inch pattern paper for the inside and outside. Cut 3 pieces at 7 3/4     x 3 3/4 inches. Tape two of these to the bottom two 8x12 inch rectangle pieces not forgetting to           place your end of your ribbon under the top of the first pattern paper before taping this down, 
    then with the top one do the same as for the top of your card. ( Measure to the middle then 1/2 inch     either side and cut to bottom corners) Not forgetting your other piece of ribbon to tie your card           together. (Image 2) Do the same to the middle of your card I also added a small pocket to the               bottom by cutting some cardstock at 7 1/2 x 2 3/4 inches, pattern paper at 7 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches and       tape together. Turn over and place thin tape along both small sides and along the bottom. Tape to         the bottom of your card. I sprayed some spray onto the front and back of my card
5. Now for the chipboard cover well with some gesso, then I have used some Liquid pearls to cover       them then pounced with a paint brush to give it that metalic look. Dry with a heat gun and make it       bubble more texture, when dry and cool rub over some gold leaf wax gently around the edges
    and the top. I also covered the butterflies with gesso, really roughly and sprayed with some spray,       dry with heat gun and keep on using the spray until you are happy with the look.
6. Add your flowers and butterflies and I cut three tags to go into the inside pocket.
