Happy hello to you all today! Happy Sunday :) This is one of my favorite days of the week. It tends to be a low-key kind of day – often spent with family, running errands, working on fun projects. It’s a day we get the opportunity to tie up the loose ends from last week and plan ahead for the next. I like those kinds of things.
Welcome to the 16th day of our STAMPtember™ celebrations! Today, we are featuring a wonderfully creative and stamper-friendly company “Memory Box”. Memory Box is in their 18th year in business and started out by selling 3 colors of cardstock to local stores! As a family based company, Memory Box’s creator, Dave Brethauer is also the product designer for Memory Box. It’s good to work with good people and the “Memory Box” family are good people. Memory Box has a line of stamps, papers, and dies that we sell in our store.
Stay tuned because Dave has a special $5 off any purchase coupon code for you if you check out his blog!
The next step is to die cut out the overlay using the Colette ornament…
We are honored to also feature a collection of exclusive dies manufactured by Memory Box in our Simon store. The Simon Says Stamp series of dies are a treasure to us. It’s been tremendously exciting to see these visions come to life! What is most exciting is that we have many designers involved in the creation of these dies – including our very own teammate, Kristina Werner. Strategically planning how to partner stamps and dies together has been a BLAST! Below Kristina shows how she incorporated 2 Simon Dies named Holiday Shapes and Ribbon Banner with a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Handwritten Sentiments stamp set that she designed in her own handwriting.
I know this is STAMPtember™ (emphasis on stamp) but I could not wait to share the card below with you that Kristina made this week! Can you believe she only used paper, dies, washi tape and liquid pearls to make this!? I totally want to use this idea for my Christmas cards this year. Aren’t the liquid pearls BEAUTIFUL!? She used the Mod Tree die to create the positive and negative imprints below.
Looking for stamp and coordinating Die sets? Maybe these will wet your whistle :)
