Memory Box NEW Halloween/Fall Release!

BOO! aka Hello! Time to get inky for Fall!  Sharing three projects I made with the NEW Memory Box release!

I’ll start with this cute BOO to YOU!  The Fancy Gate Globe is NEW.  I paired it with the Snowglobe Backer die to make this hanging or it stands too, tag.

The ghosts are from the NEW Ghosts in the Forest die set and the sentiment is the NEW Boo Posh Script!  So cute!

I inked a background piece I cut with the Nested Globes die set and inked with purple inks and an ink blending brush. (it’s a brighter purple IRL)

This was a quick tag to make!

Linking my tag to the Everybody Art Challenge – Tag

Next up is an A2 size card I made with the NEW Ghosts in the Forest die set.

I die cut the scene out of Memory Box’s black glossy cardstock and the ghosts out of white glossy cardstock.  I love how it looks IRL.

I inked an A2 size panel for the back with oranges and purples and spattered water, white paint and black paint on to it.

I added the NEW Rickety House die cut in the same glossy black cardstock.  For the windows, I die cut the house in white and left the windows in the cut, colored them with a Copic yellow marker, then glued the white to the back of the black house.

I used the NEW Happy Halloween Posh Script die for the sentiment.  Die cut in black glossy and an orange from my scraps.

Not really spooky but sure is cute!

Next up is the NEW Creepy Cabin die!  This one is really CAS and probably took me the longest because I couldn’t decide whether to color it or not! lol  In the end, leaving it white won out.

It’s not so creepy anyway! haha

I inked a purple-ish background, cut everything in white.

I used the Wooded Glen Collage die from a previous release for the top layer.  Then a few pumpkins I got inky from the Pile of Pumpkins die.  The stems I colored with a Copic marker.

Layered them up with that thin thin foam mounting tape I like.

Oh, I stamped Hello from the Halloween Pumpkin clear stamp set from a previous release.

This card is 5 ½ inches square. A nice size… I like it!

I’ll link everything below.

And thank you so much for clicking over.  I’ll be back…so much I want to make!

Memory Box Twiggy Alphabet Tags…

Good morning!  The weather outside was frightful yesterday! lol  I didn’t blow away so I’ve got some tags to share!

I LOVE this new alphabet die set from Memory Box…here I used the main letters, die cut in the tag and inlaid the white die letters in the tag then.  I used scor-tape on the back of the tag to hold them in and another tag so the back looks nice.

I used Sizzix Sticky Sheet Grid to line up the dies for die cutting.

Here’s what they look like if you use both the main letter and the backer piece.

I had fun!  I wanted to make the light bulbs more colorful but I made them to match the wrapping paper I have.

I had to paint the beads but it wasn’t a big deal… I used skewers and toothpicks! Acrylic paint dries fast.

Lawn Fawn’s light bulb die set worked perfect for me.

So fun!  I love doing stuff like this!

I used Taylored Expressions cardstocks…

Hemp twine to tie on the beads… black eyelets in the holes.

I glued the electrical wire on and used mounting tape to mount the bulbs.

Thank you for stopping by today!  I hope you’re having fun making too… it’s down to the wire!  Tomorrow is the homeschool Christmas party my granddaughters and I are doing tag make and takes for.  We have six different tags ready…25 of each.  Probably too many. lol  Fun! Fun!

NEW Memory Box House Frame Dies…


Hi everyone! I don’t know which one to start with!  Lots of pictures so I better just get to it!

We all love snowmen, right?  This one is sooooo CUTE!

I think I’m going to have to make a video to show what I used on each one…

I used the House Frame die, the House Frame Background die and the Snowman House Frame die.

Simple Distress Oxide backgound using my blue and purple brushes…I didn’t even add any extra ink!  Then a quick spritz of water.

The trees I used my green Distress oxide brush….no extra ink.

These will be so fun hanging on the Christmas tree or if I can part with them, on a present!


Here’s the Nativity House Frame… new navy glitter cardstock from the NEW Festive Glitter 6×6 Pad.

The House and tree are cut from MB woodgrain cardstock and inked with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.

I used the House Frame, the Nativity House Frame and the House Frame Background dies for this ornament.

I love the simplicity of this and want to make more! A great reminder that Jesus is the reason for the season!


Next up is the Gingerbread House Frame….. so cute!

Gingerbread…a must have for Christmas!  So many adorable pieces to embellish this cute house!

I used the House Frame, the Gingerbread House Frame and the House Frame Background dies to make this one.

MB woodgrain cardstock again, inked with Gathered Twigs distress ink.  The gum drops and peppermint glitter is from the new Festive glitter pad and last years Holiday glitter pad.


Last, I thought it’d be fun to make a birdhouse from the House Frame Background die!  I made it a tag.  I think I’ll still hang it on the tree as an ornament though.

I used some elements from the Gingerbread House Frame die also.

I heat embossed the word JOY from the NEW Birch Press Design Contempo Christmas Greetings stamp set.

It needed some green!  So I cut the NEW Curled Holly Branch from the Fresh Green 6×6 cardstock pad and embellished the berries with Nuvo drops.

I felt like it needed a bird. lol  I couldn’t get it to work to suit me though so I put the bird I made on the back!

He is from the MB Perched Bird die… just brushed on ink with my oxide ink brushes again.  I love how that works and so fast…who knew that an inky brush could be so handy! lol

These aren’t as big as they look in my pictures… they are approximately 3 ½ in. wide and 3 ½ in. tall.  Perfect ornament size!

Editing and adding this video…watch it on You Tube for better quality!

Whew… did you make it through this long post!  I almost didn’t! lol  I kept taking pictures over!  My computer desktop is a mess of pictures! lol

But I love making so I keep doing this! haha   We’ll inspire each other to get in the Christmas spirit!

Reverse Confetti ‘fetti friend for January/February and it’s Countdown to Confetti Day One…

Hi everyone!  I didn’t realize how appropriate this card would be for my news today! The WOW. JUST WOW. part anyway! lol I was asked to be a guest for Reverse Confetti during January and February!  A super fun way to start the new year!

My first card is using one of the new stamp sets, omg and one of the dies from the new hearts confetti cuts. Swoon, I love this stripe heart! What else can I tuck in there?! ❤

I had fun heat embossing the sentiments in white on black cardstock (don’t they look like real dymo labels), then stapling them with the tiny attacher onto the die cut panel.

I ended up with a 5 ½ inch square card.

The small red hearts are dies from Heart Tag Toppers Confetti Cuts. ❤

My next card uses another new stamp set all the love and the coordinating die set, all the love confetti cuts.

You know I love hearts!  Yes my blog name… ❤  And by the way, in case you haven’t noticed, I did upgrade over the Christmas break to expressions with!  yay!  So you shouldn’t see any ads other than the ones I put on here to the ‘good’ stuff! hehe

You have to love the ‘confetti’ hearts I made with the new oh my heart cover panel confetti cuts die!  So colorful and sure to make the receiver smile!

I didn’t get all my wood slices used for Christmas!  That worked out great for me to have one ready to stamp and heat emboss with white powder with a couple of the other sentiments from the all the love set!  So fun to add to a gift for Valentines or hey, you don’t even have to have a reason to give!

Another close up of just the wood slice…

Thank you so much for stopping by…but wait!  There’s tons more for you to see today from the other ‘fetti friend and the regular design team!  Here’s the list and you’ll want to comment because there’s prizes involved! ❤  A $15 gift certificate to a blog commenter and a $15 gift certificate to a facebook commenter!  Comments will close at noon CST January 7th.

Lawn Fawn Build A House Christmas Tags…

Hi everyone!  Last week Thursday I got to have a craft day with one of our granddaughters Lizzie Faith.  One of the things we did was play with this new Lawn Fawn Build a House die set.  I’ll link below.  It’s not very often I get grands one on one so we made the best of the day!

Here’s my two tags and then I’ll add a picture of Lizzie Faith and her tag.  She also made a couple cards with the Spellbinders Merry Everything Card kit and then she drew and Copic colored an 8×10 picture of Dragon Prince.  The girls got talent drawing!

I just picked out scraps in some teals and pinks and started die cutting.  I was inspired by Kay Miller’s tags HERE!  So festive and fun… always love what Kay designs and makes!

I did end up adding some white gel pen embellishing and glossy accents to the light bulbs. I die cut the main house piece inside the fold so I’d have a tag with an opening card. If you look close, you can see that’s how my tags are standing up.

Funny how flat photos the color changes some… I liked the picture though. lol

Ok – here’s Lizzie Faith working on her tag…

And here’s her finished tag!  She added snow and sparkle! A sweet gingerbread house!

So fun, we need to do more craft days around here… Summer is so busy with swimming and gymnastics, we don’t get as many cardmaking days in.

Thanks for stopping by and hope we made you smile!
