Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and DCWV Blog Hop!


Are you ready for our first blog hop with DCWV?  We’ve been fans of their products for a long time so we’re excited that we’re finally doing our first blog hop with them.
We each got a bunch of their brand new stacks!  I absolutely adore these textured papers... they are so perfect for me!  Here is the project that I made using some of each of the papers I got:
I made this layout of my husband and I in Siena, Italy ("Insieme" means "together" in Italian) by  cutting some of the papers into banner pieces and using the triangle pieces left over too!  I added
Gelatos® Colors in Snow Cone, Metallic Mint and Black Licorice to the background and to some of the pieces.
Of course, I had to use some of the Whipped Spackle through a dotted stencil (from UmWowStudios!).  This stuff is amazing!  LOVE the texture of it and how it makes the shapes stand out.

 The cork paper is so fun!  I ran it through my Cuttlebug with Memory Box Doilies dies and Viola!  An adorable embellishment that is self-adhering!  WOW!
You can see the textures up close are just amazing!  Thank so much DCWV!  It was so fun to work with these!

There’s some great prizes too- Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft and DCWV will be giving away $75 in product at the end of the hop.  To win, follow the list below and leave a comment.  The hop will end at 5PM EST on Friday, March 28th.  The winner will be announced on Monday, March 31st on each of the company’s blogs.
