Part 1 Christmas Banner

Hi everyone Candy here with my latest
tutorial using the Memory Maze Chipboard.
Today I have created Stage 1 of my Christmas Banner. 
It measures approx 8 inches in length and 8 inches wide.

I started with the Christmas Angel decoration piece. 
Give it a good coat of gesso or white paint.
Let this dry then coat the middle (angel and leaves) with some versamark.
Give a good coat of the white/gold embossing powder.
Using string/twine doubled and a glue gun, wrap around the edges of the frame
part of the decoration. There will be some ares you can't wrap but 
when you have finished wrapping cut the twine in lengths and glue in the spaces.
Cut your triangle banner and glue the decoration onto the top middle of the banner.
Add the lace around the edges, flowers and leaves.
Dry brush some white gesso over the top of everything using a dry brush.
Punch a hole in each top corners of the banner, add a large eyelet
and thread some twine through.

Adore Perfect Moments

Hi everyone 
Candy here today  I am sharing with you all a 6X6 inch easel card.
I have used Memory Maze chipboard items and the pink glitter.
Today I have created a  shaker card.

The larger heart on the out side I covered with some of the paper.
 But before doing that I cut out a piece of acetate in the shape of a heart. Traced it and the glued it onto the front  of the heart. Then glued the paper over the top.
 I then cover the heart with glue and sprinkled well with the glitter.
I added two layers of foam tape to the back of the heart to give plenty of area for the glitter and sequins to move around. 
The Adore heart I painted with white gesso and while this was wet
sprinkled the glitter over the top.
 And the perfect Moments labels I white washed with gesso and then used a black gel pen to make  the words darker and show up.

Wedding card and matching gift bag

Hi everyone it is my turn to make a creation
using some wedding theme chipboard from Memory Maze.
I also chose the Kaisercraft Two Souls paper collection.
Using the black card base has really taken me out of my box,
but I did it. 

 I made a 5 1/4 x 5 1/4 inch card

and also a medium size gift bag

 The card
I chose some pattern papers from the collection and cut them down
to fit onto the front of the card base.
I used an edge distresser around the edges
and taped them down. 
This is such a lovely collecion it was hard to decide.
I chose a few of the collectables for both the card and gift bag.
The gift bag I added the papers to the front also some lace
to the top and the piece for the top is raised to give some dimension.

I used two chipboard hearts and covered them well with some silver ink. 
This ink was very wet so I applied the silver embossing powder and hit it with
my heat gun. 
If you have a wet ink you can quickly add your embossing powder
this works well.
 Place these onto the fronts of the card and bag. 
Add the collectables, verse and some sequins.

Wedding Card and box

Hi everyone Candy Here
Today I have created a stunning Wedding card.
Using some of the chipboard pieces available from
I also made a box to go with the card but my camera had a miss fit and
I dont know why...

1. Using a 6 x6 inch card base. Mine was blue
2. Cut a piece of white cardsock at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches and the embossed piece paper at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches
3. Tape both of these to your card front.
4. Add a piece of netting over the embossed paper, this calmed down the colour a bit.
5. I cut the oval die from some of the blue card and aslso one from white card
6. Glue the fancy oval first , then the middle blue oval to the centre. Then add the white lattice over the blue
7. Glue on the flowers, pearl sprays etc onto your card.
8. Paint the wedding couple and the Congratulation word with white paint or gesso, while this is wet sprinkle with clear glitter and let dry. Add these to he front of your card also Liquid pearls around both oval pieces.

Hi everyone this month on Off the Rails
we the design team had to use the mood board as well as something recycled.
I thought and looked around my craft room
thinking what can I use.
I had a very large bag of tags that where given to me over the years
in different swap groups.
So I decided to use one of them as my recycled item.

I simply put the tag on a 4x8 inch white card base and
added a pattern paper underneath.

Here is the mood board

Just for you

Hi everyone I am up again with another tutorial
using Memory Maze products.
Today I have made a 6x6 inch card for you

Firstly start with your 6x6 inch card base, I have used white for this.
Cut your pattern paper at 5 7/8 x 5 7/8 inches
and tape to your card base.
 Then cut a second pattern paper at 5 3/4 x 5 3/4 inches. 
Now with the second paper tear approx a 4 inch strip off the right hand side.
Curl the torn edge and tape to the left side of your card base.
Cut the smaller piece at 5 5/8 inches length wise.
Curl the torn edge and tape to the left side as well.

Paint all your chipboard pieces and while they are drying 
cut a piece of the white glitter paper to fit inside the oval chipboard. 
I turned my glitter paper over and traced the oval with a pencil then
cut it out making a little bigger so I could glue to the back of the oval frame.

Cover the oval frame, butterflies both metal and chipboard with the
shabby white embossing powder.
Cut the end parts of the spring arrives flower and swirl piece.
And cover the three pieces with the gold embossing powder, also the word phrase.

Using foam tape under the oval frame tape to the front of your card.
Then add the 2 small scroll pieces to each side of the frame.
Then slide the larger piece under the curled paper.
Add your flowers , pearls and butterflies to your card.
Then go around the inner edge of the oval frame using the white liquid pearls.
Also add a little in the centres of the small gold flowers.
