12 Cards | Michaels Recollections Memory Explosion Box 6 x 6 Paper Pad and Ephemera


Today I’m sharing 12 cards I made using the Recollections Memory Explosion Box Collection. This collection is sold at Michaels craft stores. It caught my eye because of all of the pretty pastel colors and foil throughout the paper pad. There were so many pieces to this collection, but I purchased the 6 x 6 foil paper, chipboard frame stickers, birthday die cuts, and washi tape. With these items, I made 12 birthday cards and used up all of the ephemera. Some of the cards can be used for congratulations cards as well. With the chipboard frames, I made some shaker cards. All supplies are listed below.

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit – 10 Cards 1 Kit

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit - Love LifeLife - FishTank2Stamp

The Stamps of Life January 2021 card kit was released on January 15 and this kit is AMAZING! First of all, this is the first time EVER that The Stamps of Life has included a 6″ x 9″ paper pad! Woo Hoo! This larger paper pad is perfect for making slimline cards.

This kit corresponds to the monthly stamp and die set called FishTank2stamp as well as the add-on set, MoreFishTank2Stamp. Here’s a picture of everything that is included in the January Card Kit.

The Stamps of Life January 2021 Card Kit Contents

The January card kit is called the “Loving Life” collection. The color pallet for this month is Poppy, Blueberry, Sky, Blue Jay, Grape, Sunshine, Kiwi, Cloud, and Powdered Sugar.  This kit comes with 12 cardstock sheets — one in each color plus four Powdered Sugar cardstock sheets.

The 6″ x 9″ paper pad is the Loving Life Collection and comes with 24 double-sided sheets of patterned paper. It also includes four sheets of fish tanks and fish, all of which can be die cut using the shadow dies from the FishTank2Stamp dies and MoreFishTank2Stamp dies. In total, there are 28 fish, 8 starfish, 8 seaweed, 6 turtles, and 10 fish tanks for a total of 60 die cut pieces. I love how these die cuts can be used to make quick and easy cards.

The card kit also comes with a Loving Life word die, white epoxy dots, two ribbon, a sentiment stamp set with two additional fish stamps and matching dies, yellow bow embellishments, fish puffy stickers, idea card, a set of envelopes, and a large storage envelope to put everything in. In addition, The Stamps of Life included a freebie this month which is a large Stamps of Life tote bag.

Triple Circle Slimline Card using FingerPrint2Stamp

Hello!

Today on my blog I’m sharing a slimline shaker card that I made using some fun products from The Stamps of Life. For this card, I used the FingerPrints2Stamp set and the Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set.

The Triple Circle Slimline Drop-in die set works with the Rounded Slimline Card die set and the Slimline Card die set to cut the background out of the paper to put on the front of a slimline card. Using this drop-in makes it easy to turn a regular card into a shaker card.

I also used the Fingerprint2stamp set. This is such a fun set. It includes stamps of various images — fish, dog, cat, bear, football, elephant, and more. Just put your fingerprint in an ink pad and then put your finger to the paper to fill in the inside of the stamp…so fun!
