Memories & More

Stamper's Dozen Blog Hop...Home Decor

SDBH Banner

I am a slow crafter.  Believe me I can take a long time making even the simplest of projects.  I am also a master procrastinator which coupled with being slow well, it is just not a good combination.  I am working on overcoming my issue with procrastination but you know the joke I will get to it sometime later.  

This week has been extra busy and I realized  I had just a short time period to make my home decor project for this hop.  What to do?  I found this frame in my stash and decided to make another sampler.  However, I didn't have the time to create little pieces of stamped goodness for each little space.  What to do?!  

Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card pack to the rescue!!  


The middle row of images and the "Tis the Season" are all Memories & More cards cut down to fit the frame.  I added a few rhinestones, a star, and a little bit of glitter but otherwise they are straight out of the box.

The top right is a card front from the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Cards & envelopes.  I added the Santa's sleigh die which was cut from the Jolly Season dies.  I painted on some Wink of Stella so there is a little shine on the sleigh and reindeers.

On the bottom left, I made a wreath using one of my favorite dies, All Around Wreath dies.  I cut 2 wreaths one in Mossy Meadow and the other in Old Olive and layered them.   The berries were created using Sparkle Glimmer paper with a little Cherry Cobbler ink daubed over it.  The ribbon is the beautiful Cherry Cobbler Diagonal Stripe ribbon.   The star paper is from the Night Before Christmas 6" x 6" DSP.  

On the bottom right I cut the words using the Merry Christmas dies in Sparkle Glimmer paper.  The background paper is also from the Night Before Christmas 6" x 6" DSP.

I also sprinkled snowflakes cut from Sparkle Glimmer paper using the Seasonal Layers and the Christmas Layers dies   around the frame.

I am now a believer in the Memories & More card packs.  It was so easy and quick, even for me to put this project together.  I look forward to making a bunch of cards using the rest of the cards and the card & envelope pack but you guessed it, I will get to that later.

Now it is time to  hop on over to see what the talented Carol Payne has created!

Here's a list of all the stops on the hop!

Another Petal Passion Memories & More Card

Here's another card I made using the Petal Passion Memories & More Card pack.  


This time I colored the image with Calypso Coral and Old Olive Stampin' Blends and fussy cut the image.  I used the shimmery Calypso Coral ribbon that is a Sale-A-Bration choice.  The Shimmer Ribbon Pack includes ribbons in Basic Gray (1/4" wide),  Bermuda Bay (1/8" wide) and Calypso Coral (3/8" wide).   Each roll has 5 yards and it is free with a $50 purchase.  Be sure to check out  page 9 of the Sale-A-Bration brochure to learn how to make the ribbon curly.


The sentiment is from the Petal Palette stamp set which is also part of the Petal Passion Suite.  I used the Petal Pair embossing folder to create texture and interest.  You can see the other card I made using the Petal Passions Memories & More Card Pack here.

If you need quick, easy and elegant cards or need a project that is great to take with you, think about the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack.  All you need is a few markers to color on the go or to write down and preserve your memories.  

Petal Passion Memories & More

The Petal Passion Suite in the Occasions Catalog is one of my  favorite suite of products.  I think I purchased every single item in the suite.  


This card was made using one of the beautiful 3" x 4" cards in the Petal Passion Memories and More Card Pack.   One of my creative goals for 2018 is to become a better memory keeper and I thought these cards would be a great way to start.  These cards are gorgeous and perfect for memory keeping however, I couldn't resist making some cards from the pack.  You get 2 each of 26 designs in the 3" x 4" size and 2 each of 10 designs in the 4" x 6" size.   Lots of cards for memory keeping, planners, gift tags and greeting cards.    I colored the image using  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and Pink Pirouette Stampin' Blends.  The images are already shaded which makes it very easy to color.


I also used one of the Petal Pair Embossing folders.   The one I used is a beautiful border of flowers and leaves.   It is simply gorgeous.   The only stamping I did was to stamp the sentiment from the Ribbon of  Courage stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.


Product List

The Petal Passion Memories & More Card Pack is very versatile and great for lots of quick and easy crafting.  The cards give you a great starting point and what you make is up to you and your imagination.
