GSF Memories & More Blog Hop

Welcome to the January GSF Memories & More Blog Hop. This month we are featuring Memories & More products and sharing ideas to help inspire you to create your own fun projects. This month I am focusing on the New Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack (item #148531) and coordinating Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards & Envelopes (item #148806) that can be found in the New 2019 Occasions Catalog. 

The card pack is perfect for making quick and simple cards as can be seen by this card design, created using one of the 4"x6" cards from the card pack and adhering it to the Night of Navy large note card from the cards & envelopes pack. I just love the vibrant colors and the detail on the envelope flap.

This card already has the birthday sentiment printed onto it so there is no need for stamping. You can just put it in the envelope and it's ready to give to someone. Quick and simple card making with minimal supplies and no stress.

Now I want to show you how you can step up this card design by adding some stamped images using the Geared Up Garage Bundle (item #150610) from the 2019 Occasions Catalog. By sampling stamping the car onto Real Red cardstock and the toolbox onto Crushed Curry cardstock with Stazon Jet Black ink, I have personalized this card and made it more masculine. No need to fussy cut the images when you have the coordinating thinlets dies in the bundle to cut them out with your Big Shot.

To complete the card you simply attach the images to the card front with Snail Adhesive and add some Basic Pearls that have been colored using the Dark Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends Marker. This card design would be great for a teenager or a car buff and you can change the colors to personalize it for the person receiving it. As you can see, masculine cards don't need to be dull and boring.
The Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack contains a variety of card designs in 2 different sizes that coordinate with the two sizes of note cards in the Happiness Blooms Cards & Envelopes pack, for easy card making. The card designs feature bold, vibrant colors and designs that can be used for a variety of occasions. There are also 4 sticker sheets that you can use to embellish your cards.

By combining these two Memories & More products, you can create cards in advance so that you will always be prepared for whatever occasion comes along. By adding other products, like the Geared Up Garage Bundle, you can step up your card designs and create wonderful masculine cards for your friends and family.

I hope that my cards have helped inspire you to try Memories & More products for your creative projects. The possibilities are endless and can be so much fun.

  1. Great idea to use those masculine elements for this card! I am not a big fan of flowers, so I love to see flowery stuff used differently. Thanks for sharing :-D

  2. Great use showing how easy it is to make cards from the Memories & More card packs. Loved how you stepped it up easily too.

  3. Super cards and your explanation of how to make the most of limited supplies is great. It turns out simple stamping isn't so simple for us avid stampers or maybe it's just me! Thanks for sharing x
