Stampin’ Up! Memories and More 20 card showcase

Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator Pootles – Memories and More 20 card showcase

So… it was fairly well known that despite my best attempts, I really struggled to get on with Project Life when we had it in our catalogue.

I think however, the light bulb has gone off in my head.

I was trying too hard. We had too much in our line up for each collection – the card pack was too big and the accessory pack and stamp set was too overwhelming.

But, we now have a brand new system, all of our own making, and it’s far more manageable.

The pack contains the cards AND the accessories all in there, and yes, there are stamps that co-ordinate, but it’s more that the Memories and More sets co-ordinate with main catalogue products than the other way around.

And taking that overwhelming number of cards and accessories out of the equation and also taking the continual ‘memory keeping, memory keeping’ chant out of the equation has also helped.

So I’m focusing on the ‘and more’ part of the Memories and More lineup, and created myself 20 cards in a very short space of time.

I used only the pack with half a dozen glitter gems and a couple of bows. That’s it. The entire collection of cards that you see here, all 20, came from one card pack and there’s so much left over.

My video doesn’t show me making the cards, but I get to open all of the other card packs and enjoy seeing them for the first time, along with you!

Have a super week, and I hope you look at the ‘and more’ part of the new Memories and More lineup

    I just finished watching your Memories and More video. Your enthusiasm has spread to me, and I
    can’t wait to make some cards myself. I have the Color Theory set, which I’ve thumbed through several times, but have felt somewhat at sea as to how to begin. Thanks to you, I now have a starting point. As you said, it won’t take a lot of fiddling around to finish a pretty card. Thank you!

    Love your “Memories & More” adventure and the beautiful cards you made., I am an avid scrapbooker, which is the reason I started with Stampin’ Up! Although the “Memories & More” packs are on my list I have not purchased them yet. It was so nice to “share” opening your packs with you.
