Memory Box Workshop

Last Saturday was my Memory Box workshop. Participants received a My Creations Memory Keeper Box and a sheet of Fresh Shapes Dimensional Elements (chipboard) and had the option of adding on a 9"x9" My Creations Memory Showcase accordian album.

My great customers graciously allowed me to take pictures of them with their gorgeous creations. Ann plans to finish hers with a few Just Blooms flowers in the center and will stamp "For everyday" on the tag.

Joy plans to use her box to hold keepsakes from her daughter's wedding (though I hear she's changed the cover a bit). Can you see how she used pieces of a large pink Just Blooms flower to create butterfly wings? She used pieces of the Fresh Shapes Dimensional Elements to construct the butterfly body. Nancy (at right) stamped a design along the edges of her box. I love how she incorporated a tag from one of our classes last year into her box top!

Here are a few shots of my box, which will be a gift for my little monkey on her birthday later this month. She picked the Good Times paper pack as her favorite and has no idea how I've used it for her. (I have plenty of paper left over for her scrapbook.)

Can you tell that I sponged the Dimensional Elements frame and flourish in Sweet Leaf with my foam texture tool and then used the black stubble tool to add specks of Twilight? Also, I paper-pieced the monkeys but first stamping them on Chocolate textured cardstock that I lightly sanded first and then stamping them onto Colonial White cardstock. I ended up sponging a little Chocolate ink onto the Colonial White faces because they were too stark. Before I give her the box, I will adhere the two flaps shown in the last photo, but until I do it will lie flat.


  1. Gosh, they are all beautiful and very different, but that is the fun part of scrappin'--there are no limits to the imagination! Miss M is gonna love your creation for her!!!...xoxoxo

  2. Tell your ladies that their boxes are awesome!! Love them!
