Memory Keeping: Forever and Always

Preserving memories through memory keeping has to be one of the most satisfying ways to feed that creative urge. Not only does it let you express love for the important people in your life, but you can also surround beloved photos with your own creative touches—adding an embellishment here, a Designer Series Paper layer there—until you feel that you’ve honored your loved one and created a work of art at the same time. 
We think our Always Together page would be a treasured gift—maybe to copy, frame, and share with family! Our concept artist added some love to her project by inking up the True Love Designer Series Paper background layers. How did she achieve the flowers’ rich color? First, she colored the images with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends, then added a blush of color on top using the dark Petal Pink Stampin’ Blends marker. She also created a bit of depth by adhering a Vellum Cardstock layer behind the photo, then made the page pop with a sprinkling of Artistry Blooms Sequins. 
And let’s not forget that beautiful “Always” sentiment! She made it by stamping with VersaMark ink on Bumblebee Cardstock and heat embossing using White Stampin’ Emboss Powder. (Heat embossing is much easier than it looks! Give it a try if you haven’t already!)
What can you do with your boxes of photos gathering dust on the shelf? We challenge you to keep the memories fresh, pull out your papercrafting supplies, and start making a few precious scrapbook pages today. You’ll be glad you did!
