'Live your Dreams' by Elisa Ablett

Hi Crafter's

Elisa here from the Design Team sharing my next creation with you today, a very colourful Art Journal page using some gorgeous Memory Maze Stencils and Chipboard frame and of course some (ok lol maybe lots) of Colour Blast mixed media products.

This Art Journal page started off as a practice page in my Art Journal for the new Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then i  re-purposed the page by adding layer upon layer of Memory Maze stencils and Colour Blast until i had a very vibrant page with depth and texture.


After i added the Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts in Candy, Navy, Lush, Grape and Sunflower (add a small bit of the Dusts and add water) to the right side of the page, i used a circle stencil from Memory Maze with a white sharpie pen on the left side of the page. 

Next step was to add Colour Blast Mica Powder to Prima Crackle Texture paste and spread through a mini bubble stencil from Memory Maze with a palette knife.

I also used a white sharpie paint pen to trace around a love heart stencil on top of the watered down Colour Blast Shimmer Dust on the right hand side.

Also spread white texture paste through a chevron stencil with a palette knife and sprinkle the paste while it is wet with Colour Blast Embossing powder and heat with a gun til it bubbles...


With your chipboard frame, colour it with white gesso or a white paint sharpie pen and then add a small amount of Colour Blast Shimmer Dusts to the frame with a paint brush and water. Flick watered down white acrylic paint over the page.


Here are some of the Memory Maze products that i used!!

Sunshine with Candy Chelepy

Hello another month has quickly gone by nearly the end of August already
wow.... I am sharing with you all my layout that I have completed for Memory Maze
a little Queensland chipboard company form Hervey Bay.


Firstly I have started with some pattern paper and cut this down half inch two sides, then using the martha stewart border punch, punch messy around your edges. Then tape this to the white cardstock.

I mixed some white gesso with water and brushed the background as I wanted to calm the background down a bit.

I have used Patina texture paste and the mask and applied onto the layout. Let this dry well I used a heat gun and made it bubble. You know how I like the texture thing going on.


Now for thr oval frame, heart pieces and the word Sunshine coat well with the white gesso.
I used the Merci Beaucoup embossing powder on the oval frame and heart pieces.
Then the Silver Moon Mistletoe embossing powder on the hearts and the word Sunshine.

Glue all these pieces onto your background then add your flowers and splatter with some white ink.
Don't forget to cover your photo.

Travel the World | Tarrah McLean

Hi everyone!

It's Tarrah back with you today to share another layout using some awesome Memory Maze Designs chipboard!


I love creating travel themed layouts so when I saw the camera, the arrows and the words 'world' and 'together' I knew they would be perfect to incorporate into my page!

I inked all the pieces of chipboard in a variety of colours to fit with the colours in my layout, I find inking my chipboard is the best for me as its quick and not too messy! I am such a non messy scrapper!

I used a cut file also on this layout.....this is one of my favourite things to do when I scrapbook...it often helps me with the way I am designing my page! 

Here are the sets of Memorymaze chipboard that I have used on this layout!




Thanks so much for stopping by the Memorymaze Designs Chipboard blog!

Happy creating!

'Happy' by Elisa Ablett

Hi Crafter's,

Elisa here from the Design Team with my next creation for Memory Maze, a mixed media layout featuring some lovely Memory Maze stencils and chipboard and of course some Colour Blast.

To create the background i sprayed Colour Blast 'Love' and 'Carribean' Colour Sprays and 'Just Blue' and 'Fire Engine' Shimmer Sprays over the top of the Grunge stencil. I only sprayed across the page trying to keep to the middle as much as possible. 

Once dry I used the circle stencil and using a blue Fuseball pen by Ranger i traced random circles over the sprayed background and then using a paintbrush and a blue water colour paint coloured in most of the circles carefully.

While that was drying i gave the netting chipboard and a couple of the shells a coat in gesso and spread 'Just Blue' Colour Blast Paste over them using my finger.

With the other shells i heat embossed them with Colour Blast Embossing Powder in Just Blue and then while they were drying i rubbed a small amount of watermelon Mica Powder from Colour Blast over the embossing to provide a contrasting colour.

I matted my photo in white and black, used some medical gauze in the background behind the photo and added some splashes of the colour sprays to finish off. Assemble your layout layering your elements! 

Here are some close ups!!





Here are the lovely Memory Maze products that i have utilised to complete this layout. They can be found in the Memory Maze Shop here - http://www.memorymaze.com/

Christmas Tags with Candy

Wow how the year is flying it will soon be Christmas before we know it. So I have decided to try and get ahead and do some tags for some special people in my life. 
This weeks Christmas tag tutorial is for Memory Maze

I have dived into my mighty stash and found some Christmas decoration and Merry Christmas chipboard words. All the tags are 6 1/4 x 3 1/8 inches and I have used my christmas stash. Firstly paint all the chipboard pieces with white gesso.

Tag 1
Using the bauble decoration and the Merry Christmas word. I squeezed some red, green and gold kindy glitz onto a plate then using my finger daube all over the chipboard pieces. When that is dry use some white opal liquid pearls and daube around the outside of each bauble etc.Even on the Merry Christmas word. I have used some green cardstock cut to the size required then some Christmas paper, embossed white cardstock, fancy border and a stamped frame to complete the tag.


Tag 2

Using the raindeer / tree decoration and the Merry Christmas word cover withsome Perlen pen its like perfect pearls and a paint brush, brush over the chippboard pieces. When this is dry add some crystalina kindy glitz to the tree and gold perfect pearls around the edge and when that is completely dry cover with some dimensional magic.
 I used some red cardstock, christmas paper , embossed white cardstock, stamped image to make this tag.


Tag 3

I had some smooch in my stash and needed to use it so I covered the Merry Christmas word and decoration. When this was dry it took a while but dried finally. I put some gold kindy glitz on my finger and daubed it around the decoration and on the word.

Treasure Island - by Toni Herron

Toni joining you today with this mid-week inspiration with another exciting project.
So last month I asked you to try something new. This time, I would love for you to THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX / PAGE!

I just couldn't contain my pleasure for how awesome this has turned out. Please feel free to make one yourself and get your creativity flowing.

Treasure Island


I started off with an idea in my head. So I ducked down to the local hardware store and picked up a box of plain cheap Tiles, White Pebbles and a bag of Sand. Next stop was the $2 shop for the large Paddle Pop sticks, clear crystal Gems and mini clear wish jar bottles. Last supplies were sticks picked up from my garden outside my craft room window.


Once back at my desk I laid everything out and ready so I can figure out what chipboard and other embellishment goodies I will be able to use. Using a lot of hotglue, I stick down the paddle pop sticks to form a box, then the sticks around the edge. Then fill it with sand.


I coloured all of the chipboard with very simple techniques. I painted the sign post with a Sandy colour paint. The fairy is painted white. The magical heart piece and the tiny butterflies are coloured with a Gold Alcohol ink.

The embellishments in the sand as you can see are the clear crystal gems, I wrote on one of the white rocks, I slid a little note into a bottle (message in a bottle style), put gold glitter in the other, then sprinkled stunningly gorgeous Memory Maze BLING all around to make the "Treasure".
