Memory Keepers Studio

It's April Reveal Day!

RevealDay

Tam & Julie here, to let you know that we are not fooling around today. We have our super-duper serious faces on, and will not stand for any kind of tom-foolery. Nor any Tam-foolery! But Julie-foolery is just fine. ;)

But seriously, we're not joking when we say that these new stamps and dies are gorgeous! Bev will tell you all about it in her new release video, below. You've probably been following along with our sneak peeks of the Monkey Business, Growing Garden, Garden Sentiments, and Meadow Flowers, but now you get to see everything!

Cool, right?


Plus, Don't Miss The Blog Hop!

Our creative team, along with several guest designers, have a whole bunch of projects that they're sharing with you, too. We hope you'll visit each of their blogs and leave some comments for them along the way!

April's Sneak Peek #2 Is Going to GROW on You!

SneakPeeks-Day-2

Are you ready for spring? Around my house, we are buying seeds and starts, getting our garden beds ready for planting, and planning which veggies are going where. Both of today's sneak peeks let me feel feel like I'm playing around in the garden even when it's pouring down rain outside.


This month's Memory Keepers Studio stamp set is named Growing Garden. It will help you make scrapbook pages about your garden, layouts about your child or grandchild who are growing like weeds, or gardening-themed cards for your friends and family members.

Are you a member of the Memory Keepers Studio auto-ship program? We will ship the Growing Garden stamp set to you starting on April 10th. You may also want to add the matching Growing Garden dies to your auto-shipment. If you do place an add-on order, don't forget to choose the "Members only: Add to my existing monthly shipment" option so you don't pay any additional shipping!

Not a member? Learn how you can save 25% of the Memory Keepers Studio stamp sets, receive free shipping on your add-on orders, and about the other benefits of becoming an auto-ship member.


If you like the sneak peek of the Growing Garden stamp set, you will probably also like the Garden Sentiments stamps and matching dies. The hand-drawn garden and plant images from these two sets are designed to be mixed and matched together.

I hope you enjoyed the sneak peeks of these two sets of stamps and dies. If you want to be the first to see all the new stamps and dies on the new release reveal day, sign up for our Inner Circle Newsletter. We'll send you all the details on Monday!

Life at Home Layout Tutorial Featuring the Love Home Stamp Set

Hi Everyone! This is Bev. I am so excited to welcome Ashley Horton to our blog today. I have admired Ashley's traditional scrapbook layouts and Traveler's Notebook projects for a long time. When she agreed to be a Guest Designer for us, I knew we would see some awesome projects. I hope you enjoy Ashley's tutorial!



Ashley-Horton-30079345_175526506432994_5259319270793281536_nHi there! I’m Ashley Horton, and I’m so excited to be a Guest Designer with Technique Tuesday during the months of March and April. Today, I am sharing a layout in my Traveler’s Notebook, using the Love Home Stamp Set . I love working with stamp sets, because they are so easy to use for any project you are creating, whether it’s Traveler’s Notebooks, cards, scrapbook layouts, etc.




Life-At-Home-Love-Home-Essential-Stitched-Labels-Travelers-Notebook-Ashley-H-Tecnhnique-Tuesday

I started my Traveler's Notebook layout with a large photo and paired it with a Pie Chart patterned paper in the TN insert. In the center of the Pie Chart, I stamped the "Life at Home" sentiment as the title of my layout. Sentiments in your stamp sets, can easily be used as the title for your project, and I love that you can use them over and over again. Then I added a little bit of journaling and embellishing to complete the left-hand side of the layout.



Life-At-Home-Love-Home-Essential-Stitched-Labels-Travelers-Notebook-Ashley-H-Tecnhnique-Tuesday-3

I thought it would be fun to include some stamping on the photo, so I used the Oval & Rectangle Stitched Label Dies with a rainbow patterned paper. I loved that the rainbow patterned paper coordinated with the Pie Chart colors. Then I stamped two sentiments in black ink, from the Love Home stamp set onto the die cut pieces. I placed one at the top right-hand side and one at the bottom left hand side of the photo. Placing the two stamped sentiments this way, helped to add great balance to my TN layout.



Life-At-Home-Love-Home-Essential-Stitched-Labels-Sneak-Peek-Ashley-H-Tecnhnique-Tuesday

And I just couldn’t finish this TN layout, without using the cute bird house image from the stamp set. I knew it would be great to use it to create a fussy cut embellishment. I stamped the bird house in black ink on two different patterned papers. Next, I cut out the pieces and trimmed away the bottom portion of the bird house on one of the patterned papers. I adhered the roof to the other part of the bird house and then placed it at the top of the Pie Chart.

I hope you’ve found some inspiration for using the Love Home Stamp Set on your upcoming projects. And try mixing the stamps with the Oval & Rectangle Stitched Labe Dies to add some extra interest to whatever you’re working on!



I hope you all enjoyed Ashley's tutorial and Traveler's Notebook project as much as I have!

This brand-new set is perfect for recording and celebrating the place you spend most of your relaxing time - home! You'll find so many ways to use the hand-drawn images and phrases to create accents for your photos, or to make journal cards. The photo captions and embellishments you make will be perfect for projects about your current home, your childhood homes, grandma's house, or even your favorite home away from home. Plus make sure you watch Bev's release video tomorrow to see how these stamps can be used to make amazing cards too!

Project ideas for Valentine's Day...

Hey friends, it’s Shelley! Have you started thinking about your Valentine's Day projects? While I was out packing some orders in the warehouse today, I noticed lots of loved-themed stamps and dies that have me inspired. Here are some project ideas to get your creativity flowing! (Clink on the project pictures to learn more about the featured products. Or see them all in the Love Collection!)


Vday-NL-pics7

Shake things up! Although it’s hard to see in this photo, the die cut Love Puzzle pieces on this card are raised to make a shaker box filled with sequins. Interactive cards are such fun to receive!


Vday-NL-pics7

Create a sweet paper airplane border inside and out: Cut a border along the outside edge of your card using the Paper Airplane border dies. The pink airplane and heart-trail are glued to the inside so when the flap is lifted the plane is sailing across the inside of the card as well. (Tutorial Coming Soon! Sign up for our newsletter to see it first!)


Vday-NL-pics7

Just Charming: There are 6 different dies in the Charming Hearts craft die set and it’s only $9.99! These delicate dies are great on cards or tied to packages. Cut them from shiny metallic gold or silver paper and they almost look like jewelry!


Vday-NL-pics7

Sassy Sentiments: Valentine messages don’t have to be sentimental. If you’re looking for a sentiment will a little attitude, add some humor to your cards with the Love Stinks or You’re Not Normal stamp sets.


Vday-NL-pics7

Piece it together: This unique card combines die cut puzzle pieces from the Pieces of My Heart craft die and a stamped image. Stamp and color the Cherry Blossom stamp set on white cardstock. Then position the puzzle die over the cherry blossom image and run it through your die cutting machine. It’s also fun to stamp a message and put the loose puzzle pieces in an envelope for the recipient to put together!


Vday-NL-pics7

Punny Valentines: Remember the Valentines you received in school with adorable animals and punny sayings? You can re-create the nostalgia using your favorite critters from stamps in the Animal House collection, like Frederick and Fiona Fox.


Vday-NL-pics7

Send Some Love: Consider sending Valentines to someone other than your sweetie. Brighten the day of an elderly friend or reach out to someone you haven’t seen in a long time with an unexpected card. This cheerful greeting features the Sending Love craft die and Love is in the Air stamp set.


Vday-NL-pics7

Lots of Love: This card goes together in a heartbeat! Just die cut the word “Love” from the Long Love craft die set in a rainbow of colors, add a couple hearts and there will be no question how you feel!


Vday-NL-pics7

One die, lots of impact: The Cascading Heart border die is sized perfectly to create a border down the edge of an A2 card in one quick cut. You can keep your project time to a minimum by cutting the border and letting the hearts fall out, then place a piece of red paper inside to shine through the open hearts. Or fill in the hearts by cutting the die on various colors of cardstock and piecing it back together.


Vday-NL-pics7

Love takes flight: The new Love is in the Air stamp set makes my heart happy! The simple images lend themselves to all kinds of coloring mediums, but won’t take a lot of time to finish. I also like the versatility of the set as I can use it for cards but also my scrapbook layouts.


After looking at all these projects from our creative team, I can’t wait to get started on some cards of my own…I just have to decide which I LOVE the most! Which card inspires you?
