Application for Memory Maze DT

With great excitement and a bit of anxiousness, I'm applying to the Memory Maze DT for 2015..
I have always loved the MM chipboard and was really excited to have met owner Sally and her sister Jan at a crop in Rockhampton a few months ago.. I've kept in touch and updated on the blog and facebook pages since.. So when I saw the post go up for Applications for DT I knew straight away that this was something I wanted to take a giant leap towards..
No expectations of course, but hopeful! :)
The requirements have asked for me to share 6 of my favourite projects that I have used Chipboard to make.  I have chosen to share a few different style creations as I know that MM also have Stencils, blings and much more than just Chipboard..
First I'm actually going to show you two BRAND NEW makes only created today!
 1. This is untitled at the moment.. It features a MM Mannequin chipboard design.. The photo is of my Grandmother.. Dated 20th September 1961... This definitely has a "shabby chic" Mixed Media feel to it.. 

2. "Grandmother".. This features MM chipboard title word.. The photo is of my Mum and my oldest son at a wedding in 2009.. Some what a simple layout, but all of the embellishments pieced together with the pattern paper and chipboard make this an eye catching page.. The other chipboard is not a MM product, but does look simular to some of the goodies they manufacture. I actually cut this in half and separated the two parts.

3. Next is a Canvas I made featuring a large MM chipboard frame.. The photo is of my glamorous cousin Jackie.. I have not shared this project on my blog yet...   I kept the colours basic to match her dress.. The wire frame along with the flowers and butterflies definitely do this photo justice in my opinion!

4. This Beyond the Page isn't manufactured by MM, however it does have a MM chicken wire on it.. It also displays my use and LOVE for Beyond / Off the Page projects.. The photos are of my boys..

5. I've noticed that MM have been making quite a few Fairy goodies lately.. And of course, anyone who knows me, knows I'm obsessed with Fairies! I collect Fairies and have HUNDREDS! This is another Beyond the Page project.. A simple Shadow Box.. This isn't a MM manufactured product, but  hope it does show that I'm up to making any style project required..

6. The final layout is another page.. This features a MM chipboard frame in an unusual way.. It also showcasing the use of stencils and embellishments placed together to make the whole project pop...

Of course I could have shared these projects, but as Sally has already seen these in person I didn't want to include them in my 6.

Righto, well that's it for me.. I hope I've covered all that I was required to in this post. Please drop on by the Memory Maze blog to keep up to date on this awesome QUEENSLAND manufacturer!
It's hard for any Australian business to be to the standard of many International companies, but I can say I honestly believe this is one of the top Chipboard manufactures!
Even if I'm not chosen as a DT member, I will still happily buy and use their fantastic projects and proudly promote this local company.. :)


  1. These are all fabulous projects Toni, and MM would be lucky to have you on their DT. Good luck! Always great to promote a local company. (PS I didn't know about you and fairies!!)

  2. Amazing! Blown away with inspiration.
