Memories Folder File

23Apr10

For my sister’s birthday party we decided it would be nice to have a small box of cards available that everyone could write a memory they have of her or something special about her.  That way she can sit down later and read them all and have a laugh, or cry, and hopefully enjoy the nice things that we all remember about her and that she does for us.

Of course I had to make it and this is what I came up with:

She loves flowery things and the colours I used should hopefully match the decorations (I’ll let you know tomorrow if they do).  Inside there are single cards decorated similarly to the front.  I forgot to take photos and now it’s too late 😦   It’s not my usual style as my sister is very different from me.  I hope I got it right and made something she likes.

    I hope she likes it Amy – I always stress when I give people handmade things like this. And call me selfish, but I always want a good reaction from the receiver, like “ooooh, this is beautiful, wow, did you *make* this”!! haha! But I’m sure you know what I mean.

    It’s beautiful though – I’m sure she’ll love it.

      I do know what you mean and I did get that reaction! Yay for me!

      She loved it and so did everyone else. I can breathe again.

  2. Amy, I am sure your sister will be absolutely delighted with this fabulous keepsake. Bye the way, love the colours, right up my alley. Kris.

      Thanks Adele. I always love your comments as they make me feel so awesome. You know exactly how to make me feel good!

      I made the flower the same way as I have previously done but with two little changes. I used 3 scallop circles of Riding Hood Red and then 3 of Pink Pirouette and then I sponged the edges lightly with some Riding Hood Red after I had it looking the way I wanted it to. Does that make sense? I hope so. If not just let me know!

      By the way, your flowers look pretty darn awesome too!

      It’s ADSP – Amy’s Designer Series Paper. lol

      I used the embrace life stamp set and stamped with black ink onto whisper white cardstock. I then highlighted the stems with the fine tip of the old olive marker. For the flowers I used the brush tip of my ruby red and pretty in pink markers and added old olive as shadow around the blooms.

      I told another sister when we planned this that I was going to keep it simple so that it wouldn’t take long but would still look elegant. It was simple to do but it took a while to colour them all. So at least I stuck to half of the plan 😉

      Good luck having a go. I’ll be looking for your version on your blog soon 🙂

  6. It looks stunning Amy!!!! Just gorgeous – I don’t think I could get it to look anywhere near as good as this- this looks better than some of the printed stuff!!!!! Just beautiful….
