Three Fresh Ways To MemoryDex



Three Fresh Ways To MemoryDex |

After last week's lion of a winter storm keeping us homebound for two days, this week's sun and warmer temps has me embracing spring. It just feels different in the studio. The light is brighter. The makes are springy. And I just wanted to jump in here and share what the spirit of the fresh new season is inspiring in my soul.

Yes. I am a tad behind on my One Word album. That will be on the work space soon.

Yes. I have a YouTube in my head to be made which I am really excited about. And we will get that done.

Yes. I have a new MemoryDex class up on the class site...which just might be inspiring these MemoryDex inspired cards you will see here. (That and the spring-shine)

But here I am. Just making for making sake.

The Happy Birthday Sweet card above was an ode to wanting to make a shaker card. Wanting to use vellum. Wanting to make use of those banners again. And a birthday vibe that is here this week too.

I used the Birthday Paper from Scrapbookcom for the background. Sprinkled an assortment of sequins on that surface. Carefully covered with vellum then sewed around the edges.

Cut up banners are always a good thing to have in the stash. I even attempted some Pops of Color on one of the banners. I need to work on that technique a bit more. Don't judge.

This card a nod to the first one I made. I wanted pattern. But also vellum. I wanted a pocket. But also an easy way to attach it. I wanted to say happy birthday. But also to have a little hidden note stashed behind the sentiment. Next time I should want better focus on this photo. Please forgive that.

Lastly I just wanted to do what I love to do. Layers, baby! Also, there is a new Lovely Bunches floral stamp in the studio. That I wanted for a background. It goes without saying that background could have been all kinds of more detail and inking and stamping. But I refrained. Kept this simple. Which was a good idea as the top of the card got a little busy.

With the Roses Paper Pad I trimmed a 3x4 size card. Then sewed it to a piece os 3x4 cardstock after having added the floral background. That stamp die piece? Do you not love that? The Waffleflower brand is fast becoming a favorite die source. The postage element is cut using a new to me die set called Postage Collage. Click through for a better look see or catch it with the supplies below. But...for goodness sake...I need more of that in my life right now. Vellum snuck it's way into this card with the die cut butterfly. The smaller butterfly was in a stash of previous cuts and was sweetly calling to me to make use of her. Once I came upon that little piece this card really started coming together for me. that is my ode to spring and birthdays and new MemoryDex cards and the need to take time to make.

I am sure I will be right back in this place again. 

Thank you for reading this post today. Hope you found some inspiration for some seasonal making of your own. Super easy when you keep your canvas limited to 3x4. But that is a rambling for another day.
