{ MemoryDex by Heidi Swapp revisited }

Hello and happy 2020!

I decided to document my daily life using MemoryDex. I have purchased the MemoryDex spinner a few years ago. I have since created several boxes with cards to use for various projects. I do have the original MemoryDex Desktop Tray Holder by Heidi Swapp. There are lots of videos on youtube on how to create one. There are various free files for the cards and there are ones you can purchase. I have all the MemoryDex dies and I have the punch. I guess I got lucky. This system has been around since 2015. I know that American Crafts produced more of the discontinued items recently. You can find some of the items on Scrapbook.com, Amazon and Heidi Swapp website

I am sharing two free files in this blog post. One is the rolodex card and it fits Heidi Swapp system and it fits paper straws (see photos below). The other one is the diamond shape I used for one of my cards created for the Instagram challenge hosted by Damaris @atstudiod and Vstolinr @caroline_mae_m. I will be sharing my projects on Instagram you can follow me there

Here are some of my projects using MemoryDex.

{ Exclusive Scrapbook.com stamps }

Hello, I am sharing a card today created with brand new Scrapbook.com Stamps. For this card I used I used XOXO stamp set.

I stamped "XOXO" using Scrapbook.com - Premium Hybrid Ink Pad - Rose Group - Confetti Pink.  I fussy cut the letters and adhered them to the card front using Scrapbook.com - Double Sided Adhesive Foam Rounds - Small Rounds.

I was able to use larger pieces that I cut to adhere to the larger letters. 
I added watercolor splatters to the background using Spellbinders - ArtEssentials Collection - Watercolors Set - Brights.

{ Impression Obsession - Old Is New }

Hello and welcome to another Old is New blog post.

With such a huge collection of wonderful stamps from so many artists, sometimes the older stamps in the Impression Obsession catalog find their way out of the spotlight. We don't want them to be forgotten, so from now on you'll be seeing our team feature them regularly. We hope you're inspired!

Here is the card I created:

This card started with the stamped washi tape that was left over from another project, along with "hello" and die cut half circle that is from Stitched Pinked Circls. I stamped the rose and leaves from Rose 2 Set. I used three shades of pink to stamp the five layer rose and I just love the way it turned out. I used 3D Foam Adhesive for added dimension.


I hope you visit Impression Obsession blog and visit the Design Team to see what they created with old stamps.

Let me know if you have a favorite older stamp set.

Have a great Monday.

{ Impression Obsession - Die Cut Obsession }

Hello and welcome to Die Cut Obsession. We have set aside a couple days to share some fabulous new Impression Obsession die projects! Have fun checking out what our Designers have made today. Today's participants can be found on the Impression Obsession Blog.

Here is my card. 

Very simple and easy card with only one die cut - Fall Leaf Background. For the bottom portion of the card I die cut the image again from contrasting patterned paper and this time used only the inside of the leaves.

I hope you love this card as much as I do. Make sure to stop by Impression Obsession Blog for links to other Design Team creations.

Have a great Monday!!

It is layered over Crazy Stitched Set die and Stitched Pinked Circle. The sentiment is from Skinny Words stamp set. I stamped the background with Wood Grain Cover-a-card background. The button with twine is from Button Card die set.
