Woodware Challenge Set by A Maze of Memories – Treasured Memories

This month our guest this month is Christina from A Maze of Memories, the challenge that Christina has set for us is Treasured Memories.

I am going to go through some bits of this layout, but Christina has written a tutorial on creating the chalk board effect here I have never done it, but I may be trying this weekend!

Christina is a very proud Mum, and rightly so, daughter number 1 has just gone off to University…

This page has so much going on, it is wonderful. But there is more….

I love the hinged piece that hides lots of more journaling and photos.

You can see here how the  date stamp and the journaling pad have been used

Here you can see the journaling pad and the date stamp (the date stamp is great, with extra words and symbols)

The patterned papers are all from the Paris Collection.

Remember to check out Christina’s blog to see how she created the chalkboard background with the Frost White Pigment ink.

Gelly roll pens and

 Sakura pencils are a must. The swirl stamp is from the Stampendous Homemade TopperPerfectly Clear set.

The words are from Jane’s Inspirational Verses Clear Magic set. Christina has also used Jane’s Something To Say… set. You will also find Francoise’s Life is… one of the new Tiddler size stamps.

I love the frame around the small mat, the frame has been made with stamps from Francoise’s Holly Swirls Clear Magic set, this is so clever. (I love stamps, you are only limited by your imagination!)

Christina has sprinkled 3mm pearls around the layout, they work especially well in the corners here with the lines drawn with the black Micron pen.

I hope that you agree that this is a wonderful layout that Christina has created, with some many interesting things to look at, and so beautifully made. Christina has set the bar very high this week!

Thank you for visiting us today, see you soon.

  1. Beautiful layout Christina. The chalk board is a great technique, and I love all the swirls and hidden extras. They do indeed celebrate a “Treasured Memory”.


  2. Thank you everyone for your kind comments. I enjoyed making the layout and it will indeed be a “treasured memory”. The chalk board technique is very versatile and great for cards too.
    I am really looking forward to seeing what the design team come up with each day during the week.


  3. Dear Christina – this is a really wonderful layout – and a very happy occasion to celebrate too! Clever girls – both of you!! That chalkboard effect is well worth remembering a using sometime for a smart card layout. Thanks for the inspiration.


  4. Amazing Christina. My daughters love scrapbooking so I’m sure there are plenty of ideas here for them to be inspired by. I’m off to check out your blog.
