Memory Box

Featuring Memory Box products

Pinecone Bundle

Happy Sunday everyone!

Today I’m playing along with this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge .

I cut and coloured the Memory Box Smooth Pinecones and Antique Pine label dies. I snipped off the label section of the die so that I had two separate pine branches. I adhered a couple of patterned paper strips to my card base before arranging my die cuts on top. Finally I added a Mama Elephant sentiment and a few pearls.

Curled Holly branch

Hello everyone!

Today I’m playing along with the colour challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches.

It’s a fun festive palette so I decided to try out a new-to-me colouring technique using alcohol markers to colour the fabulous new Memory Box Curled Holly Branch die. I think I still prefer using my distress inks to colour die cuts but I’m definitely going to practice this technique a little more.

The sentiment is by My Favorite Things.

Stitched Pumpkin Trio

Happy Saturday everyone!

First up¬† today is my entry for this week’s Freshly Made Sketches challenge.

Following the sketch, I created the central panel on my card using my rather dry Nuvo glitter paste and an Echo Park Paper stencil. While that was drying, I pulled out my Memory Box Stitched Pumpkin dies which I haven’t used for a while. I coloured them with distress inks – although the sketch only has two circles, I decided to throw caution to the wind and put all three on my card! I then stamped a sentiment from the My Monthly Hero Kit from September 2018 and adhered all the elements to my card base.

Leafy Blessings

Happy World Cardmaking Day everyone!

And it’s also ‘Originals Only’ day over on Instagram – a day when we show our support for all the wonderful designers who are constantly coming up with wonderful products for us all!

So here’s the card I created to thank just a few of the many companies who continue to inspire me.

I used dies by:

Memory Box (Jasper Leaves)

My Favorite Things (Birds of a Feather set)

Poppystamps (Whittle Oak Leaf)

Simon Says Stamp (Eucalyptus Leaves)

Stampin Up! (Boho Indigo die set)

Simply Graphic (Feuilles geometriques)

Creative Expressions (Elegant Arrangements)

Penny Black (Leaflets)

Hero Arts (sentiment)

I used the theme from the Global Design Project which is ‘leaves’.

Autumn Tree Triptych

Happy Friyay!

Today I’m playing along with the current sketch challenge over at The Paper Players .

I used four of my older die sets to create my take on the sketch – Leaf Canopy and Perfect Pumpkins by Memory Box and the Tree Triptych and Gourds and Pumpkins set from Poppystamps. The oldest is from 2011 and the most recent is 2016! I love how timeless these designs are! The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

Summer Flower box

Hello again everyone!

Next up today I’m playing along with the sketch challenge at CAS Colours and Sketches and this week it’s a slimline card sketch!

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I’m so glad I was able to hold on to all my old pre-creased slimline card bases. I used these so much a decade ago and the card is still beautifully white!

I decided to use a few of my older Memory Box dies (Summer Border die and Grape Vine die) together with a newer Sizzix die. The sentiment is from a Pretty Pink Posh set.
