This month, we are showcasing Stampin’ Up!’s Memories & More collection! Memories & More is a pocket style scrapbooking system to easily assemble your family memories into an album. True to it’s name, it is so much more than scrapbooking! Because each collection coordinates seamlessly with Stampin’ Up!’s stamp sets, ink and accessories, it is really simple to assemble other types of projects!
Each Memories & More collection has a number of 4×6″ cards, and 3×4″ cards, all double sided! Included in each kit is a selection of stickers or laser die-cuts for embellishment.
Here is a video from Stampin’ Up! that shows the variety in the collections in our annual catalogue:
For my first project, I wanted to put together a quick and easy card:
The striped background and the baby boy background are both Memories & More cards, and the elephant is one of the accessory stickers. This card is simple and cute and took under 5 minutes to make!
For my second project, I wanted to share a quick album idea. This album was inspired by a treat bag album shared by Amanda Charlesworth at www.scrimpingmommy.co.uk.
My sister-in-law asked me to put together a unique idea for her sister’s bridal shower and I thought this treat bag album would be perfect! I wanted to use pre-made treat bags to simplify the project so I used our gold, striped treat bags. Here is the cover:
Inside the album are places to put photos of the happy couple, memorabilia, signatures from her guests and journaling:
The beauty of Memories & More is the variety of designs included in one pack for only $12.50 CDN! It’s a really affordable way to get a lot of different paper designs.
