Friend Friday Continues with Maya Road

Welcome back to another Friend Friday with Maya Road, we are having so much fun mixing our Chameleon pens with Maya Road, Dies, Stamps and Scrapbook products. Today Sandra shows how you can create a mini scrapbook album using just two Chameleon pens and Ilina shares a Shaker Christmas card.

By Sandra Kustić Uzur

We asked Sandra why she wanted to make an album, she said “Summer is coming to an end it’s time to make albums full of photos and memories. Blue and yellow are representing Summer 2017 for me and that is why I chose this two colors for my Heart album. This Summer I spend on an Island Pag with my sister and this album will be the best present for her so she will remember it for the rest of her life.”

If you would like to recreate your own Heart Album you can download the instructions here.

Now you have your summer photos organised in your new album, it is now time to start thinking of Christmas, Ilina has made an early start on her Christmas cards with this fabulous shaker design using Chameleon pens and Colur Tops.

By Ilina Crouse

Ilina said “It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas is my favorite season to make cards for. And since I was little I loved snow globes. So when I saw the Maya Road Noel Holiday Die bundle I knew I had to make a snowglobe. Sit back and relax while I show you how to make this snowglobe shaker card.”

Ilina has created a video to show you how easy Chameleon Pens and Color Tops are to use, just grab a coffee sit back and enjoy.

Happy World Card Making Day

Yes today is World Card Making Day the perfect excuse to get out your craft supplies and create cards all day! Sandra pulled out her Chameleon Color Tone Pencils to create this neat rainbow feather design especially for the day.

By Sandra Kustić Uzur

We asked Sandra what inspired her to create this design, she said “I love colors and I love Feathers because they remember me of my Angels that are looking over me. For this occasion I choose to combine both and the result is amazing. The card is full of color and ful of life and this is the best way to celebrate this day – World Card Making Day that brings joy to everyone that enjoys Card Making or in geting wonderful Cards from Friends.”

We are excited to be spending every Friday this month with our Friends at Maya Road, suppliers of paper crafting, scrapbooking, card making, sewing and mini album products.  Their range is a perfect match to Chameleon Pens, Color Tops and Pencils.

Jessica has created a Gift tag to show how easy it is to use various elements from Maya Road with Chameleon pens.

By Jessica Sanders

Jessica said “For this gift tag, I was inspired by the soft effects that can be achieved by combining Chameleon Pens with heat embossed stamping.  The Maya Road Rose Garden Sentiments Stamp set is perfect for showing off this wonderful effect!  I hope you will try this unusual technique!”

You can see how easily Jessica colored the background papers by watching this video.

Another Friend Friday with Rosy Owl


Welcome to our Friend Friday with Rosy Owl, our team are having so much fun using our pens with their dies on  Foamiran to create stunningly realistic flowers.  They are so easy to create anyone can do it with our cool guides to help you along the way!

Jessica joins us today creating a card using only two Chameleon Pens, yes all that shading on the flower was created with just one Mauve pen.

By Jessica Sanders

Jessica said ” My card is inspired by the simple way we can encourage others by giving them a card or flowers. I wanted to create a floral card that would brighten a friend’s day. Creating a soft floral effect is easy and fun with Rosy Owl dies and my Chameleon Pens.  The three sizes of Rosy Dot Heart Flower dies are perfect for layering.  The leaves and stamens add the perfect finishing touch to the card.”
