Hey everyone! Happy Thursday! I belong to a Facebook Group called Creating for Christ and while watching a live video this morning on our monthly card class using the Petal Garden Memories & More card pack, I wanted to see what I can do with some of the other card packs. Now for those that aren’t familiar with the Memories & More card packs, they are Stampin’ Up!’s version of the pocket style memory keeping system. But just like the title says, it’s for more then just memory keeping. I pulled out my Petal Passion card pack and this is what I came up with. The packs consist of 3″ x 4″ and 4″ x 6″ cards and accessories that can include stickers, foil embellishments and sometimes some acetate cards. I use them in my traditional 12 x 12 scrapbooking as well. Here are the measurements on my card:
- Card base in Powder Pink cardstock cut at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 4 1/4″
- Basic Black cardstock cut at (2) 3″ x 4″
- Petal Passion cards cut at 2 3/4″ x 3 3/4″
I first layered both cards on the Basic Black layers. Then I took some of the Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon and tied it around the striped card layers, then adhered it on the card base at the left. I brought out my Petal Palette stamp set and stamped the sentiment in Basic Black Archival ink, then adhered that to the card base. I thought the flowers could use some color, so I blended on some Powder Pink ink with my Blender Pen, added some of the light pink glitter dots and called it done. Didn’t that turn out cute? I just love how the card pack coordinates with the stamp set. It’s going to make some really cute scrapbook pages too. And talk about economical! The packs are only $10.00 for 72 double-sided cards. There’s 52 3″ x 4″ cards and 26 4″ x 6″ cards, 2 accent sheets, 2 cardstock sticker sheets and 2 acetate card overlays. That’s a lot to play with! You can see this pack on page 24 of the Occasions Catalog.
If you’d like to order some of the card packs, you head over to my online store to place your order. Remember we are still in the final days of Sale-a-bration and today is the 3rd release of items. When you place a $50.00 order or more using Hostess Code 9KM4FRD4, not only will you get your free SAB item, but you’ll also get a free goody from me. Don’t you just love Happy Mail?!?
Thank you for stopping by and be sure to come back tomorrow for another Fabulous Friday!
