Bloom Street MemoryDex Cards


Wednesday, February 26, 2020

Continuing with this progressive project - I've created the next set of three cards for my Pink Paislee MemoryDex using Bloom Street!


This rolled flower ampersand card is one of my most favorite things ever :) It's a miniature version of the rolled flower ampersand I created for my Spring Decor class at Big Picture Classes from many years ago. I die cut my Rolled Flower Cut Files from Paper 07 - 36 flowers, each sized to under 2" to fit in the 36 squares of patterns so they're itty bitty! I also cut about a dozen more mini flowers from other Bloom Street papers. This little card is just over 4" tall. Very fiddly to make but soooo worth it! For the base I folded a piece of Paper 14 in half then used the official MemoryDex punch to add the notches at the bottom to fit inside the box.

For this second card I folded a piece of the Specialty Floral Transparency Paper in half, tried to use the punch but it was too thick so I just used scissors, and then machine stitched around three of the sides. I poured in the sequins from the Mixed Embellishments and then finished sewing it closed to create a fun shaker pocket! I attached an eyelet to the top right corner then tied on a Tassel along with one of the Flower Charms. The layered paperclip is the one piece of SWAG that I kept from the 68 I made to give away at Creativation 2020 so I thought this was a fun place to keep it displayed. I printed the Bloom Street logo and tucked it under the clip along with a photo of me. I layered Floral Die Cuts under the photo and added a heart border sticker from the 4-Page Sticker Book. To finish this card I added a few jewels from the Mixed Embellishments for sparkle and shine!

The last card is an envelope cut file that I cut from Paper 23 and then machine stitched around all the flaps. I layered Ephemera Die Cuts, stickers from the 4-Page Sticker Book, a colorful "bloom street" title made with the Puffy Word Stickers, a heart from the Puffy Vinyl StickersLayered Butterfly Sticker, and a couple Floral Die Cuts. The more layers the better!

In the envelope I tucked journaling cards from the Ephemera Die Cuts on which I added photos, the stamped date Bloom Street was released, and the blurb explaining what this collection is all about!

Here is a photo of all the previous cards made with my other Pink Paislee collections, three for each collection:


Plus the three Truly Grateful cards (I need to take a new picture with them allll!):

They all fit nicely in this box and sit atop my cabinet as a fun memento to my collections! Let me know if you have any questions, thanks for stopping by!
