I love the Memories and More product line, it’s great as it’s so versatile. I was so excited to see that the Happiness Blooms suite will have a coordinating Memories and More card pack and Notecard and envelope pack.
The card pack is really awesome as it features two sticker sheets, 6 single-sided specialty cards with a shiny spot varnish, plus the regular 6×4” 4×3” cards.
Here I have used some of the feature cards and teamed them up with the Notecard and envelope pack to make some cards really quickly and easily. You can keep card making with Memories and More really simple like the card on the right here….
Or you can step it up a little by adding in a few elements, like I did with the card on the left. Here I cut out the sentiment and layered it over some coordinating cardstock – I chose Pineapple Punch to coordinate with the stamens – and finished it off with some silver metallic thread. I popped it back on using dimensionals.
Here I have used another feature card on a notecard base and added some simple punched shapes from the Designer paper pack using some of the coordinating Bitty Bloom punches.
While this did take a little more time, partly because I can be indecisive, I “Umed” and “Aghed” over where to place my flowers, it was easy enough to complete. I used some dimensionals to pop up some of the flowers to help add some interest.
This next card was our Make & Take at OnStage, what I really liked about this was here, we used the cards cut to size. So the strip of blue for our sentiment was cut down from the 4×3” card, there is another card backing the stamped image. We even got to use one of the specialty cards, here we cut a flag to one end and layered it on the cardbase, when you move it slightly back and forth – it shines. We all love shine and bling don’t we?!
But of course the cards are designed for Memory Keeping as well, and I think there is a great combination of journaling and filler cards in both sizes. Here I have created a page for my Alaska album. I have added some stickers over some photo pockets…
I have also added some stamped images over the top of one of the filler card to create my own decorative one to suite my theme.
And because the printed design of these card match the stamps, it really easy to create a cover page for your daily album.
As you can see, there is so much to get busy with in just the Memories and More section of this suite.
Until next time… Stamp Creatively,
