Showing posts with label Memories & More

Thank you to everyone that joined us last month for Crop Kingston July's All Day Crop in support of Loving Spoonful here in Kingston. We used the Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack for our Make and Takes this month.

So glad we used this Memories & More card pack this month! I have a whole trip with my mom to PEI in 2013 that needs to be scraped and this pack is perfect for it! Watch for more layouts in the future featuring pictures from this trip and this card pack.
A quick card using pieces from the Come Sail Away Memories & More card pack and some embellishments. The lighthouse image is a 3" x 4" Memories & More card as is the pretty 4" x 6" compass card that was used on the card base. The brown trim behind the main card is from the cardstock stickers included in the card pack.

Hello! Today I am sharing a two page spread using pocket pages that I was working on during my Facebook live last week. Friday night I took some time to finish the left side page since I did not have time while live to do so.
This is my first time using the new Magnolia Lane Memories & More cards and I love them! These cards were made during my Facebook live last Thursday and were very simple to make! No stamping but I did do some fussy cutting on the card above. The pink flower image was hand cut from another card and I coloured it in using the Petal Pink Blends to give it a pop of colour so that it stood out from the rest of the card.

The flower and leaves on this card are from the adhesive images included in the Memories & More card pack. The label and the sentiment are from another sheet of adhesive images in the same pack.

Stamps: none (images and words are included in the Memories & More card pack)
Colours: Petal Pink, Kraft
Accessories: Magnolia Lane Memories & More card pack, Magnolia Lane Memories & More Large Specialty Cards and Envelopes, Petal Pink Blends, Linen Thread, Pearls, Stampin' Dimensionals

May 2007 trip to Whiteshell Provincial Park is now scrapped! Last night I printed the map of the campground we stayed in with our tent onto Whisper White cardstock. I didn't take any pictures of our campsite! I'm a little furious with myself but I am thankful for the pictures I do have. I believe the right side of this layout was one we did at a crop but I moved a few things around when I found pictures of our trip to the campground.
A new goal for me this spring and summer - make more scrapbooking pages, whether they are pocket pages (my favourite type) or full 12"x12" pages. I hope that you can join me either here on my blog or Facebook at or join me at one of Crop Kingston's all day crops.

My page today is from my camping trip in May 2007. Created this page during my Facebook live and it was very hard to not take a long time picking what I wanted to use for this layout. But I love how this turned out. Maybe I need to use a timer when I scrapbook so that I spend less time being indecisive and more time creating!

Hello! Welcome to the Global Stamping Friend's March Blog Hop! This month our challenge was to create 2 to 3 projects, each one building on the last one. My projects feature products from the Delightfully Detailed Suite in the 2018-2019 Annual Catalogue and were perfect for creating these quick cards. (If you saw either my Instagram or Facebook post this morning you would have learned that I created these cards very early - at least for me - this morning before work!)

The first card used a card from the Delightfully Detailed note card pack and pieces from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack. I love that the Memories & More card packs include sticks and sentiments to make crafting nice and easy! I did cut down one of the 3"x4" cards with the black/multi-coloured design. The Calypso Coral flag, the little flower and the Congratulations are both stickers from the Memories & More card pack.

For my second card, I changed it up a little. Keeping the Blackberry Bliss and Basic Black theme, I added one of the laser cut Basic Black lace 3"x4" cards - cut diagonally in half so that I could split it between this card and the next stepped up card. The Congratulations is popped up on Stampin' Dimensionals and adhered to a trimmed 3"x4" card from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack. To complete this card I added a few Mint Macaron and Blackberry Bliss Faceted Dots.

And the final stepped up card! I cut the Delightfully Detailed note card's back off and trimmed it down a little bit on the sides. It is framed in Basic Black with some Silver Metallic Thread wrapped around before placed onto a Blackberry Bliss card base. For some extra texture I added a Pearlized Doily behind the Basic Black laser cut piece.

Thank you to everyone you joined us Saturday January 26th at our first all day crop for 2019! We raised $50 to donate to the Boys and Girls Club of Kingston. We used the All My Love Designer Series Paper for our Make & Takes.

My pocket page was created with dies and no stamps. I used the Celebrate You Thinlits and Petals & More Thinlits to decorate one of the 4"x6" pockets. The large heart was cut from the designer series paper - I hand cut it with scissors but have discovered that the Be Mine Stitched Framelits has a heart die that will work with it!

The card I designed uses the Amazing Life stamp set. The flowers were hand cut while the main image was cut out using the Layering Oval framelits. A piece of Powder Pink 3/8" Mini Ruffled Ribbon completes the card.

Lisa designed the 12"x12" scrapbook page to showcase pictures from her son's birthday! I love that Otter stamp from the Hey Love stamp set and it works well with the pictures on the layout.

Out next all day crop will be Saturday February 23 in support of H'Art Kingston. Registration is closed for this crop but is open for our March crop on March 23rd in support of Marta's Table here in Kingston. Head over to Facebook to learn more and for the link to register:

At the crop this past Saturday I challenged myself to create 2 cards using only a few products: Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack, a card base from the two Memories & More cards and envelope packs, Stampin' Dimensionals, Faceted Dots and Silver & White Baker's Twine. I shared the above photo on Social Media on Sat. Below are the 2 cards I made:

It's great the Stampin' Up! has these card and envelopes that work so well with the 4"x6" and 3"x4" cards from the Memories & More card packs! No additional cutting to make the cards work! On the purple card I started with the Mint Macaroon water washed card and added the intricate Blackberry Bliss laser cut design overtop.

Each pack of Memories & More includes sticker sheets. For both cards today the greetings are from the sticker sheets! Make assembly nice and quick! I did cut down one of the 3"x4" cards so I could have the lace design show on the right.

At the crop we made projects using the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More card pack and, gasp, no stamping! The first project is our pocket page. Punched and cut up some of the 3x4 cards to create this page.
Thank you for those that crafted this past Saturday at our all day crop in support of Relay For Life! I was able to work with May's Paper Pumpkin kit - Manly Moments and put labels on my new ink pads. It looked like a lot of others were busy creating all day as well!
Thank you all who participated in our April Crop in support of Partner's in Mission Food Bank, we raised $95.00. Next month we are supporting Relay For Life - details can be found here.

In this month's grab bag was the Bundle With Love Memories & More card pack. For the two projects I designed for our make and takes there is no stamping! The cards and stickers included in the card pack make this projects easy and quick! The blue elephant image on the bottom right pocket is punched from one of the 3x4 cards. This card pack has blue on one side and pink on the other! So the above pocket page can easily be created for a girl instead!

The Sweet Soiree Memories & More Card Pack is a beautiful way to create not only pocket scrapbook pages but also pretty cards! The background piece is a 4"x6" card cut down to 5.25" x 4". The floral image is cut from a 3" x 4". You can earn this Memories & More card pack with your $60 order placed before March 31! Place your order here!

It was great to see so many people at our first all day crop of 2018 this past Saturday! I look forward to each crop - the time away to be creative and spend time talking with friends. In two weeks we have our very first weekend retreat on Feb 9 to 11 - I'm starting to be really excited about it!! If you weren't able to make it to our first retreat we are working on the details for the next one so stay tuned!

The first project I'll share today is a pocket page. The 4x6 journal card was modified from the original card in the pack. Pink is so not my colour and the bottom of the card was pink. I cut around the flower and along the straight line to get rid of the pink band, then glued on a piece of Basic Grey cardstock to the bottom! The flower and the "hello" were shaded first with watercolor pencils and then a blender pen to create a watercolour look.

Very little stamping on the card. The birds and heart image is a 3x4 card cut out using the Big Shot and the Stitched Shapes Framelits. From the Heart is stamped in Calypso Coral from the Petal Passion stamp set.

Lisa designed the following 2 projects. First up a simple gift card holder using only items from the Petal Palette Memories & More card pack! One 4x6 and one 3x4 card with one of the large flower stickers on the back (which I should have taken a photo!) The birds and grass were coloured in using the Stampin' Blends.

I love everything about Lisa's scrapbook page! Especially the black and white photos. The Petal Palette Memories & More card pack has 2 cardstock sticker sheets that have the hearts on them and 2 accent sheets that include the words hello from the above pocket page and the smile from the scrapbook page along with other words diecut ready for you to use!

Registration is now open for our next all day crop on Saturday February 24th in support of H'art at St. Lawrence College. Click here to find out more details and to register!

Blog Hop list:

Day 4 is missing a photo. I had sent pictures quickly off to Costco and hoped I had gotten the right ones. But it meant that I missed sending a few.

Mostly I tale horizontal pictures with my phone but this month I'm trying to take more portrait ones so that I can include all 4 different pocket page designs. Saying that, the picture at the gas station was taken horizontally. I made sure to crop it on my phone so that if would work with the other portrait photos I took that day.

Stamps: none

Accessories: Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack, Mini Stampin' Dimensionals, Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper.

Even though Christmas is not too far away, I'm already looking forward to the new year and new catalogues!! Today I'm sharing some projects that I've designed for my application for display stamper for OnStage in April using products from the upcoming 2018 Occasions and Sale-A-Bration catalogues.
My first card uses the Petal Palette stamp set, Petals & More Thinlits and the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper. Colours: Fresh Fig, Early Espresso, Whisper White

My first 3D item features the Lots of Lavender Sale-A-Bration stamp set and Special Celebrations stamp set from the Annual Catalogue. I spritzed the white pizza box with Crumb Cake ink and alcohol. It's finished off with a piece of Wood Textures Designer Series Paper and a piece of Silver Sequin Trim. Colours: Always Artichoke, Wisteria Wonder, Crumb Cake, Whisper White.

My second 3D item is a decorated acetate box featuring my favourite new stamp set: Magical Day! The adorable knight was coloured in with water colour pencils and an aquapainter. The bricks were coloured in with Stampin' Write markers. Colours: Bermuda Bay, Smokey Slate, Basic Gray, Silver, Whisper White.

This card uses a piece of the new Sale-A-Bration Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series paper. The yellow design look just like honeycomb! A little bee from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits completes it! Colours: Daffodil Delight, Whisper White, Basic Black.

This card uses Petal Palette Memories & More card pack (with its fabulous stickers!). The smile is a cut-out that comes with the card pack that I sponged with Calypso Coral ink. I also sponged the little heart sticker. Colours: Calypso Coral, Basic Black, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette.

My scrapbook page is my last project and it uses the Petal Passion suite. These pictures are from my parent's 25th Anniversary in 2005. The flowers and leaves were coloured in using Watercolor Pencils and a blender pen. The lovely word is a cut-out embellishment included in the Petal Passion Memories & More card pack. Colours: Island Indigo, Whisper White, Silver, Basic Black, Old Olive, Smokey Slate, Vellum.
