Travel Book Mark

We all love a good read when we travel, so how about creating a travel themed bookmark to take along with you.  Ekaterina is back today with this flying high book mark.

By Ekaterina Oleunik

Ekaterina said “When there is not an opportunity to see the world alive, it is possible to take the fascinating book about travel and to get to the magic world of adventures. And not to lose the place where have stopped to read, better to make a bookmark for books.”

If you would like to make your own Travel Bookmark you can download the instructions here.

Pop back on Friday for more travel themed inspiration!

Tanya is Back With A Little Princess

We are so glad that Tanya decided to stay on for another year, her scrapbook layouts are amazing!  This Little Princess layout shows how beautifully Tanya uses Chameleon Art Products in her layouts.

By Tanya Batrak

We asked Tanya why she liked using our artist range of products for scrapbooking and she said “What I love about Chameleon Pens, that it doesn’t warp the paper unlike the watercolor. Even small pieces of paper stay flat after coloring.”

Make A Wish

Today we have an inspiring card from Olesya “Make a Wish”. We have all been in the position of the little Mouse below, I remember constantly wishing to become a real boy, then one night I wished upon a star with my friend Jiminy (he was a cricket by the way) and finally my dream came true! So now I am not only a real boy, but all grown up and currently working in the Marketing Department here at Chameleon.

By Oleysa Kharkova

Olesya said ” I wanted to make starry inlaid background the moment I saw this cute mouse with a bowl full of stars. The Chameleon pens helped to add richness and brightness to the design.”

You can recreate Olesya’s card by downloading the Make a wish card instructions here.

So what have you been wishing for lately, something new for your crafty stash? Make sure you let us know on the comments below.

We will be back on Friday to announce our final Design team member for the year, so make sure you pop back and say a warm hello!

Welcome Back Design Team Member

Today we would like to give a warm welcome back to one of our designers from last year, Olesya Kharkova.

Hi my name is Olesya Kharkova, I’m from Russia. Live with my husband who supports me in my passion for papercrafting. I spend most of my time on cardmaking and coloring, almost every day. I like to tell a story with my projects and make images come alive with coloring, so to speak. Every single project means a lot to me. I have been papercrafting for about 6 years but found “my path” only in 2014. As for the year 2017 I’m looking forward to start working with new mediums, try new techniques and be successful in what I’m doing, I have also recently had my own first stamps made by So Suzy Stamps.

You can check out some of Olesya’s amazing creations using Chameleon pens and pencils on her blog here.

Olesya will be back on Monday with a super cute project for you all!
