Story Card Sunday: Remember

Hello!

It's time to make another pocket page-friendly Story Card! 

Remember Story Card from TechniqueTuesday.comWhile this Story Card is sized to fit in a pocket page, it would also look swell on a traditional scrapbook page or greeting card!

And it was easy to make with steel dies and clear stamps from TechinqueTuesday.com. Let me show you how to make one like it!

Start by cutting a base card with the Story Card steel dies. Cut a small star and medium star with the Nested Stars dies. Cut a pocket and a center with the Hello Pocket steel dies.

Say It - Remember with Daniela

Looking for a little inspiration for the Say It - Remember stamp set? Check out this scrapbook page Daniela Dobson created with it.

Puddle Jumping by Daniela Dobson for Technique TuesdayFrom the big moments to the everyday moments, the stamp set is a wonderful set to use to capture all kinds of memories. I love how Daniela used it to capture the sweet moment of her son jumping in the rain puddles with his new rain boots.

One of things I love about Daniela's design style is she is such a great mix and matcher of different design elements. She puts a little bit here and little bit there. Everything looks like it just effortlessly flows together. Look at her page and you'll see a lot of elements from the stamp set sprinkled throughout it.

Some words from the Say It - Remember appeared here.

Puddle Jumping by Daniela Dobson for Technique TuesdayThe words just really add to her title!

And here she stamped three phrases from the stamp set on a journaling card to make one big sentiment. Puddle Jumping by Daniela Dobson for Technique TuesdayI love how she added the heart to the words! Nice job, Daniela!
Say It - Remember is on sale now and begins shipping on the 10th.

Story Card Sunday: Look Window

Hello!

Can you handle another installment in the Story Card Sunday series? I sure hope so because here is this week's pocket page-friendly Story Card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comWhile this would look swell in pocket page, it would also work well on a traditional scrapbook page or greeting card.

Let me show you how you can make one just like it.

Start by cutting two base cards with the Story Card steel dies. One should be from cardstock. The second should be from patterned paper. You'll also want to cut seven blank arrows and one "look" arrow with the Always Arrows steel dies.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comSet the hexagon from the Hexagon steel dies on top of the cardstock base card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique TuesdayRun it through your die-cutting machine and you'll end up with a window card that looks a little like this.

A Story card Sunday tutorial from Technique TuesdayAdhere the window card onto the patterned paper base card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique TuesdayAdhere six of the blank arrows onto the Story Card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from Technique TuesdayMount the "look" arrow to a blank arrow.

A Gorgeous Card... Just Because!

When is the last time you've gotten a card just because?

I love it when that happens. Opening my mailbox and finding a card from someone just because they were thinking of me sure has a way of making the day a lot brighter!

And I imagine whoever gets this gorgeous card from  Birgit Edblom is going to have a much brighter day themselves!

Just Because card by Birgit Edblom for Technique TuesdaySo pretty!

I love how Birgit brought the flower from the Ranunculus - Greenhouse Society stamp set to life with all those rich colors.

Ranunculus - Greenhouse Society stamp set from TechniqueTuesday.comAnd I sure dig how she broke up the panels behind the flower as well. It gives her card the look of a window. So cool! Well done, Birgit!
