Memory Keeping Made Easy

Memory keeping does not have to be a chore. In fact, it can be a fabulous experience when you use our Memories & More Card Packs! All you need is a Basic Black 6″ x 8″ (15.2 x 20.3 cm) Album, Variety Pack 6″ x 8″ (15.2 x 20.3) Photo Pocket Pages, and your choice of Memories & More Card Packs.
Filling the album pages is easy! Simply insert photos, then add double-sided cards, specialty cards, and embellishments from the Memories & More Card Pack for a super-simple way to preserve your memories.
For extra fun, you may want to decorate the album cover. As you can see with our masculine Hello Adventure Album, we fussy cut images and sentiments using World of Good Memories & More Cards. The torn edges on the Designer Series Paper add a rugged texture—or you might want to add a little ink spatter using a Water Painter and ink to give it a “grunge” look and feel.
To create the Beautiful Baby Girl Album, we fussy cut flowers and die-cut letters (using Playful Alphabet Dies) from the Paper Blooms Designer Series Paper. We also stamped floral images on the Designer Series Paper for added interest. The result is pretty and feminine and oh-so-easy to achieve!
We hope we’ve inspired you to get out your shoeboxes filled with photos and give them a new home!

Simple stamping tips.

To cut down on time, use one (or more) of the samples you see here for inspiration. We added depth and interest to these easy-to-assemble cards by stamping off, using stamped layers, and selecting a limited—but eye-catching—color palette. You can come up with other ideas by flipping through the catalog. Get out a notepad and write down all of the simple stamping ideas you see, then pick two or three to create a beautiful card!
Whatever you do, remember to post your work, can’t wait to see your projects!

CASE (copy and selectively edit)

Feel like crafting, but you’re not sure what to make or where to start? Sometimes all it takes is a little inspiration. We recommend spending a few minutes looking through the catalog and searching for projects that remind you why you adore papercrafting! Before you know it, you’ll be pulling out your stamps, ink, and paper, ready to CASE (Copy and Share Everything).
Copy the layout
Copy the color scheme
Copy the technique
As you may notice, our concept artist did just that with her samples. She CASEd the XOXO card then copied the layout, color combo, and technique to create her other three cards. See how easy? You may want to invite a friend over to CASE with you. Better yet, have a CASEing party! You never know what a big group of CASErs could come up with! And be sure to take pictures and post them in the Demonstrator Planning Place. We want to share in the fun!

Wishing you had lots of cards on hand for every occasion, but not sure where to start? Designing clean, simple projects is the quickest way to reach your goal.
If you want an even faster method for getting the job done—one that doesn’t involve coming up with your own card design—simply use one of the samples you see here as a basic template, substituting stamps, ink, and paper to suit your taste. When you follow the overall layout of the card, including image and sentiment placement, half of the work is done for you. At the end of your stamping session, you’ll have a stack of ready-to-send cards—finished in no time at all.
Easy techniques you can duplicate from our samples include, filling in the stamped images with Wink of Stella, creating fun backgrounds by stamping multiple images on a layer, and tone-on-tone stamping. To illustrate this final technique, we stamped the car image in Pool Party ink on Pool Party Cardstock to create a subtle background. (Tip: On the top layer, stamp the center tree first for even spacing.)

In the Pines bundle

1. Stamp the sentiment in Bermuda Bay ink on a 2-3/4″ x 1-1/16″ (4.4 x 2.7 cm) piece of Whisper White Cardstock, then cut into a banner shape.

2. Stamp the three solid trees in Garden Green ink (stamp off one time for each tree) on a separate piece of Whisper White Cardstock. Stamp the tree details on top of the solid tree images.

3. Die cut all three stamped trees.

4. Stamp speckles on Whisper White Cardstock in Garden Green ink. For depth, stamp off some speckles to create a two-tone effect. Die cut the hillside.

5. Adhere the stamped hillside to Designer Series Paper, then cut out a circle using the 3″ (7.6 cm) circle from the Layering Circles Dies.

6. Adhere trees and sentiment to the circle. Adhere the circle to the Pacific Point card base using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

7. Cut a 10″ piece of Gold 1/16″ (1.6 mm) Trim and tie a bow. Adhere the bow to the card.

Challenge: Make three lovely cards using the following supplies, but give them each a unique look.
A Crushed Curry card base A 3-3/4″ x 5″ (9.5 x 12.7 cm) piece of white cardstock A 4″ x 3/4″ (10.2 x 1.9 cm) piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock A 5-1/2″ x 2″ (14 x 5.1 cm) piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set
Our concept artist accepted this challenge, and now look at all of the lovely cards: one for summer, one for autumn, and one all-occasion card!
I particularly wanted to draw your attention to the card with three 1-5/8″ x 3-3/4″ (4.1 x 9.5 cm) panels. The first depicts late summer/early autumn, the second shows a tree in full autumn glory, and the third panel illustrates a tree preparing to cozy up and hibernate for the winter. By changing the number and color of the leaves in each panel, our artist was able to suggest the seasonal progression—and create a fun build-up of leaves on the bottom of the card, which gets bigger with each panel.
