Memories & More – a photo book, tags and post it note holders

It’s really easy to create photo books with the Stampin Up Memories & More suite of products.  What I like is that it’s also easy to change – so it makes a great gift.  You can create a photo book and the receiver can easily change the photos, add some, write their own notes on the cards – and really make it their own.

I made this one for Charlie’s daughter.  (With permission!) I went to her Facebook page, selected photos, send them to my local drugstore (or Walmart is equally easy), printed them all for about $5

The hard part is choosing photos and doing the trimming!

I added in cards – and she can easily take them out and add her notes.  Below is Charlie with his grandson creating a construction site from Lego on his birthday!

The pages work fine either horizontal or vertical.

You buy the book and the pages. 

I selected the 6 x 8 book and the matching pages with space for 3 x 4 or 4 x 6 photos.  There are other sizes including a 12 x 12 book.

The cards are cute.  I used the Merry Little Christmas cards, they also come with stickers,  and some decorated acetate.

You can use these cards to make greeting cards. I used them for tags and to make post it note holders.

Here are the tags.  The Merry & Bright only needed a hole punched and ribbon. The Ho Ho Ho one had ¼ trimmed off each side.  And a mini bow.

The post it note holders are fast fun stocking stuffers.  Thick cards stock cut 3 ¼ x 8 ½ (you can make 3 to a page).  Score at 2 1/8 and 4  ¼. Nice crisp folds.

I used 2 of the Memories and More cards layered and these finish at 3 x 4 (you could use designer paper).   I trimmed the Fa La La card about 1/4 off each side. 

Now glue the layered card to the part of the holder that is 3 ¼ wide x 2 1/8 – see the blue arrow?  Just put glue on this part of the white cardstock (not the whole front of the holder.  

Trust me on this. 

Then glue the bottom half of the card to this part of the holder.  Open it up and adhere a post it note pad.

The card stands up with the card… or it folds flat and yes you can mail it, be sure to put a 70 cent stamp on the envelope.  You could stamp on the post it note holder. 

Lots of fun easy and I think wow things you can do with the Memories & More products.  Available in my online store, just click on the cart to the right and include the host code and you’ll get a free thank you gift at the end of the month!

Happy memory making - MaryKate
