Santa Claus is coming to town!


I have something a little different for you all today. My team leader gave me a gable box, All is bright paper clips and Real red ribbon to come up with something using those products and any other Stampin’ Up! supplies I wanted to use. So much fun and it really makes you think outside of the box (ahem, pardon the pun.)

Here’s what I came up with!

Stampin’ Up! Lustrous White Gable box and Santa’s Workshop Memories and more.

All of the images are fussy cut from the Santa’s Workshop Memories and More Card Pack. Some circle punches for the wheels and Santa 1 was stamped using the alphabet stamps included in the Pick a Pennant stamp set. The ‘headlights’ were finished with a snowflake from Santa’s Workshop enamel shapes.

Kit includes:
* 50 total double-sided cards (2 each of 25 designs) in 3″ x 4″ (7.6 x 10.2 cm) and 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) sizes
* 6 single-sided glittered specialty cards in 4″ x 6″ (10.2 x 15.2 cm) size
* 4 sticker sheets
* Acid free
* Lignin free

I made a scrapbook layout…about 15 years too late!

The reluctant scrapbooker…

Yup, confession time. I’ve got a bunch of photos that I was going to scrapbook – one day. Thanks to Memories and More I do have to more up to date pages using the pocket system but I recently spotted some older photos in my scrapbooking box. You know, from the days when we used to take pictures on a camera AND get them developed? Yes, that.

So the pictures I’m using are from Christmas 2002 when my Son was just 18 months old…aww so cute!! Check out his little Mickey Mouse outfit *sigh*

A quick disclaimer, I am NOT a traditional scrapbooker. I choose my pics from my phone order them online and slip them into my Memories and More pockets. Job done. But M&M is designed to be used for pocket scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking and card making so I thought I’d give it a try. Guess what? It’s so much fun! I can see why so many of you love it!

The Merry Little Christmas pack I used is in the clearance rack at the moment priced at only £3.60!

Fancy Fold with Memory & More cards

Just in case you didn’t know why Stampin’ Up! named their memory keeping system Memories & More I thought I’d illustrate it with a card! Cards are pretty much the best way to get most messages across of course 🙂


The Merry Little Christmas Memories & More pack includes:

72 Double sided cards

1 x card stock sticker sheet

1 Acetate sticker sheet

4 acetate card overlays

all for only £9.00!

We all want more bang for our buck and the coordination that Stampin’ Up! is renowned for and Memories & More is just perfect for both of those expectation. If you’re a scrapbooker you’ll do amazing layouts with them, or maybe your prefer a quick layout with the pocket system. You could even just add a pocket layout to your Love today Planner.

Those are the obvious so I wanted to think outside of the box a little.




Card recipe

Cut Old Olive card on the short side at 10.5cm (length ways)

Score at 7.5cm and 14.9cm

Stamp sentiment on Whisper White and leave to dry, archival ink has a longer dry time.

Take 2 small M&M cards and 1 large. You may need to take a couple of millimetres off the second smallest card. Trim the large card to 14.8cm x 9.9cm

Wrap ribbon around the second card, I adhered the bow separately with a glue dot.

Adhere all the cards to the base

Add wink of Stella to ornaments on big card, and number 25. Add one rhinestone to the sticker ornament.

Add rhinestones to some of the ornaments

Add  ornament  sticker to first card

If sentiment is dry punch out using 2 1/4 circle punch. Glue on and add holly sticker

Here’s all the supplies you’ll need
