Memories and More

June 8, 2017

If you don’t already know the Memories and More product suite will be replacing our previous Project Life Card Collections.  While I loved the card collections and found them very beautiful, I am loving that the Memories and More goes beyond the card collection.  Each collection co-ordinates with many other products to make the Memories and More useable for so many different projects.  For my Memory Keeping Class this month I took my inspiration from the new Annual Catalogue and cased the example on page 190.  I used the Colour Theory Card Collection which co-ordinates with the Colourful Seasons stamp set,  Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and the Colour Theory Designer Series paper Stack, as well as ribbon and Glitter Enamel Dots.  As you can see that is a lot of co-ordinating product which does make sense given the “More” in the name of the Card Collections.

I used Crumb Cake ink to add some dots to the upper right and lower left hand corners of my card using the image from the Playful Backgrounds stamp set.  I used two 3″ x 4″ cards and one 4″ x 6″ card from the Colour Theory Card Collection on my page.  I also used one 3″ x 4″ piece of Old Olive paper from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper Stack.  I printed my own photos, two 3″ x 4″, one 6″ x 4″ and one 2″ x 2″ photo.  Two of the photos are matted onto Dapper Denim card.  I cut and stamped leaves from Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry and Old Olive card using the Colourful Seasons stamp set and the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies, sponged the edges of the solid leaves with matching ink and added them to the upper right and lower left hand corners of the page around the photos.  I also added a couple to the “sweater weather” project life card as well as wrapping it with Linen Thread.  My journalling was printed onto Crumb Cake card and the edges were sponged with Crumb Cake ink.

It’s a kind of busy page but I am really happy that it came together really quite quickly – that’s the beauty of Memories and More.

If you are not already hooked on this great product line, then take a look at this video by Bonnie from Stampin’ Up!




That’s a great overview of this fantastic product suite.  I hope you take the time when you are looking through the catalogue and notice the beautiful pages which showcase each of the Card Collections with the co-ordinating products.  I’m sure that once you have this product you will find more and more ways to use the Collections in your Memory Keeping, Card Making and also when you are making 3d items.

Bye for now,
