Memorabilia Projects by Tessa

I love making cards!  It's my favorite thing to create so of course, that's what I started with this week when I had some time to craft.  I pulled out the Memorabilia collection and got to work! :)  First I made a collage style hello card:

Collage style cards are my favorite!  I love adding the layers and textures one at a time, building up into the look I'm going for.  With this card, I started with a pale blue card base.  Next, I cut a panel of the Document patterned paper and splattered it with mint colored mist.  Once it was dry, I stamped the hot air balloon from the Memorabilia stamp set.  Then I added my doily, folded in half and layered some Memorabilia washi tape over the seam.  I wanted to add some banners next- I chose two, one from the Memorabilia sticker sheet and one from the chipboard elements.  I added the twine next, tying it in a bow.  My last layer was the cute sentiment from the Memorabilia sticker sheet.  I added it to the card front with dimensional adhesive and embellished it with a couple of epoxy dots.  I finished by adding the panel to my card base with dimensional foam adhesive.

Aren't the layers fun?  :)  After I finished my collage style card, I wanted to do something simple.  The banners on the Recorded patterned paper inspired this one:

I cut a panel out of the Recorded patterned paper out so that the banners would run along the top of my card.  I stamped the sentiment in the lower right hand corner using Versamark ink and then embossed it with white embossing powder.  I flicked the panel with white mist and let it dry.  Once it was dry, I lightly sponged white ink around the edges of the card front.  Lastly, I embellished with the Memorabilia epoxy dots.

It's an easy to make card with a big impact I think! 

After two cards, I was ready to create something a little different.  I grabbed a clear pillow box I had in my stash to decorate- it's the perfect size for a gift card or a small treat:

I started this project with some found items.  I tore a page out of an old book and wrapped it around the center of the pillow box.  Next, I wrapped it with some dark gray yarn.  I cut a heart out of the Quatrefoil patterned paper and added it to the center using dimensional adhesive.  The sentiment banner came next- it's from the Memorabilia die-cut sheet.  Lastly, I embellished it with some of the pretty Memorabilia sequins.  I just love them!

I really enjoyed creating these projects!  The smaller canvas of cards and goodie boxes is perfect- not too much space to fill and so fun to give away!

Thanks for joining me today!
