Be Inspired by Memories & More

It’s time for another Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop – what fun! The Be Inspired Design Team is a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from all over the world who are excited to share our themed projects with you. I’m so honored to be a part of this group of talented stampers!

For today’s Be Inspired Blog Hop, we are sharing projects we’ve created with Stampin’ Up!’s Memories & More products, coordinating packs of cards that are perfect for cardmaking, memory keeping, or any other
project you can dream up. While many use these cards to easily document memories in pocket pages, I used them today to make cards. If you aren’t starting the hop here, then you probably just popped over from the amazing project shared by my talented friend Carolynn Sander.

Wonder of the Season Memories & More

As I flipped through all the cards in the Wonder of the Season Memories & More pack, there were some patterns that really stood out to me. Because the colors in the pack are limited to six colors, I was able to easily pair up designs that would look great together. Here are four Memories & More cards I chose to work with from the Wonder of the Season pack:

Here’s a look at the Memories & More card pack I’ve used for today’s project:

Wrapped in Christmas, Stampin Up! 153481“Peace on earth” is a perfect sentiment for a beautiful, white Christmas Tree, don’t you think? I paid the tree with a Pool Party background and an panel embossed with the Scripty 3D embossing folder. Such an elegant card. The round sentiment that says “surround yourself in the love of the season” is one of my all-time favorites. I thought it was fun to pair “love” with the panel of mistletoe on the second card. The Absolutely Argyle 3D embossing folder gave me a great texture for the Real Red panel on this card.

I love that I was able to crop out each sentiment with my Stitched Shapes Dies, a most versatile set of shapes for any card.

Stitched Shapes Dies, Stampin Up! 152323All four of the cards I chose to work with feature shades of Garden Green and Shaded Spruce – I love the gorgeous mix of greens. To supplement these greens, I made one card with Pool Party accents and one with Real Red accents. If you like these color combinations as much as I do, I hope you will save these for future reference:

  1. Loved what you did with the Memories and More cards!

  2. Thanks for showing off this pack because I was thinking about getting it. Great cards!

  3. I need to pull out that card with the tree on it and make this card. Just perfect for a certain someone! I gave an audible sigh when I saw it and I am sure the recipient will love it as well. I enjoy using these packs of cards. The gold number stickers have been great for special birthdays and anniversaries. Love this card and your other one is just as fun.

    • Thank you so much, Chris! I was excited to play with those numbers, too, but I couldn’t fit them in. You’ll see them on a project sometime soon, I’m sure. Don’t you love when products give you exactly what you are looking for to make something special? Thanks! ♥

  4. GREAT use of the Memories & More cards.

  5. Lovely, lovely, lovely. I especially love the way the white tree looks against the background. Great job Brian.

  6. Both cards are pretty. I love the color combos for each. Great job! Have a wonderful day!

    • Thank you so much, Hilda! I was going to make both of them with red accents, but I was excited to add a different look with the Pool Party. Glad you like them. Hope your day is wonderful!

  7. Very pretty cards. I love how versatile the card packs are. And they are a good deal too. So many options with them.

  8. Beautiful card Brian. Thank you for showing. I had not noticed that Memories & More pack was so nice.

    • They don’t really show all of the designs in the marketing for the M&M cards. I, too, was wow’d when I opened the pack (that I bought just for this challenge). 🙂 Thanks, Susan!

  9. Brian, thank you. I looked at these more than once. I think you sold me. Your cards are beautiful!

  10. Your Card is amazing – didn’t catch the card set in the catalogue – absolute must have!!

  11. WOW! If I could purchase a bunch of that gorgeous tree, I most surely would. I love the color combination you used and the embossing folder for the background.

  12. I love both your cards Brian and am inspired to make more with the Memories & More Card Pack x

  13. I love both of these cards! The layout is great and is perfect for showcasing the portrait and landscaper layout of the M&M cards – Emma xo

  14. Your cards are amazing Brian, love it!
