At the last demonstrator meeting, I agreed to show Memories & More. I have been using Memories & More for card making. I am not a scrapbooker, but I love the Memories & More cards for the artwork and the simplicity of using them. In planning what to show for this presentation, I decided to try some small shadow boxes. I used DSP to line the inside of the shadow boxes and Memories & More cards to create the focal artwork. A few embellishments and I was done.
What is great about this project is that it showcases not only the Memories & More cards, but uses a lot of embellishments. And most any of the designs used for the shadow boxes could be reworked for a card or a package topper. I find there are so many more ways to use the Memories & More cards than just memory keeping. With a great collection of cards, transparencies and stickers, the Memories & more are an incredible value and a truly handy thing to have on hand for the holidays! You never know when you might need a quick card, a gift tag or a gift topper. You can do all that and more with Memories & More!
Here is a close up of the embellishments in the inside of the shadow box/
And I made another shadow box with more cards.
On the shadow box above, I used stickers from the card pack to the glass. The snowflakes added a glittery look. Then I filled the shadow box with some “jingle bells” I found on sale at a local Micheal’s store. The “Merry & Bright” letters on the card were colored in using a Wink of Steel pen. You can see the glitter in the photograph, but it truly does add a nice touch. Stickers from the card pack were added to every corner of the card to finish the focal piece. A star from the Year of Cheer embellishments was tied to the bow with ribbon. And to make the star “shine:, I added a rhinestone.
These shadow boxes were fun to make and did not take much time. They are very small, about 6″ x 9”. I bought them unfinished and then painted them. On the green shadow box, I used an ivory paint and added drops of Old Olive re-inker to match a Stampin’ Up! color.
So, think outside the box and see what you can come up with for holiday day decor using Memories & More! (and yes, the rhyme is intentional!)
