Night Before Christmas Scrapbook Pages

Stampin' Up! Memories & More Card Packs are great for so many paper crafting projects including cards, tags, samplers & collages, pocket page memory keeping, and even traditional scrapbook pages. Memories & More Card Packs are very affordable and go a long way in creating! In this video you will see me create a 2 page scrapbook spread featuring the Night Before Christmas Memories & More Card Pack (#150808 for $11.00).

Twas the Night Before Christmas

Twas the Night Before Christmas and all through the know how it goes! I'm tickled that Stampin' Up! took inspiration from a favorite Christmas story of many of ours to make fun, festive products to help us get out Christmas crafting on. The Night Before Christmas Suite will delight adults and children alike with traditional colors and images that come to mind when we hear the words 'The Night Before Christmas'. 

In the following video from a recent Facebook Live, I show you how I made loads of cards (including a couple of fun fold cards) and two Christmas collages with 2 products from the Night Before Christmas Suite. I used the Night Before Memories & More Card Pack (#150808 at $11) and coordinating Night Before Christmas Cards & Envelopes (#150440 at $11). These cards and collages were made quickly and easily; they're darling; and they didn't break the bank! I'd say that's a win!

National Send a Card to a Friend Day!

Truth:  Today is National Send a Card to a Friend Day! Think of what it means to you to receive "Happy Mail" especially by old fashion snail mail. It makes you feel happy that you've been thought of and that you are loved. Let's all spread some love and kindness today by mailing a card to a friend, or even a few, or several of our friends. The love and support of friends is a treasured gift!

Here are some fun facts about National Send a Card to a Friend Day that I found in the National Day Archives that I thought you may enjoy reading as I did.

Below are a couple of cards I'll be sending out today. Each were made using the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Card Pack and Night of Navy Memories & More Cards & Envelopes. These products make card making quick and easy! That are several other coordinating products in the Happiness Blooms Suite. Consider all the bright and beautiful creative possibilities there are with such wonderful coordination of products, colors, and designs.

Memories & More with My Littles

Last school year, I had the privilege of caring for 3 little ones. Ainsley was in Kindergarten, and twins Ben and Griffin were in preschool. The school year ended and as a special treat, the kids had a sleepover at Mrs. Knabe's house. My Emily, who they LOVE, was also home from college at the time which made the sleepover even more special. Throughout my days spent with my littles, I took lots and lots of pictures. What a year of laughter, fun, and new experiences we shared. As a gift to this wonderful family, I made a Memory Album. I love this photo I received from the littles' dad this week with the comment, "I love watching the kids relive last year's memories". Isn't that sweet? I'm not sure who is enjoying the gift more, the parents or the children. I am so blessed to be able to do what I do and share it with others.  

Confession:  I knew it would be too hard to give this memory book away, so I made a second one for me to keep.  I love having pictures of the many memories made with my little ones.  Now I need to get to work on a memory album of the Thailand trip I shared with my daughters Andrea and Emily.  We have lots of great memories to preserve.


My wish for all of you is that you enjoy making memories with all those who hold a special place in your heart AND that you take a little time to preserve those memories. Stampin' Up! Memories & More products make it quick, simple, affordable, and fun for you to do so.

How about getting a head start on making a Christmas Memories Book for yourself, a family member, or friend? Watch for information coming soon on making this very special and easy to complete memory book inspired by my friend Jenn Gulch. Perfect for yourself or to give as a gift this holiday season. I'd love to receive a gift like this. It's filled with beautiful pages complete and ready for someone to add their own photos and do a little journaling about the memories made. I'll offer both Live Class and Class to Go Options.
