Fun Foiling and Die Cutting with new products by Thermoweb & Gina K Designs!

 One of the questions I get asked most often is about the stitched lines around the edges of my projects.

 Like the ones around the 2 circles and rectangle in the photo above.

 as well as this photo, and even on the ovals on the card below.

 These are a result of a fun new product line by Thermoweb and Gina K Designs.

You can find out how I constructed these, what products I used and all about the new line of products by Gina K Designs/Thermoweb by watching the video at the bottom of this post.   

Until Next time.... "Be Happy"

Memory Dex Cards - I've gone off the deep end!

This is one of my favorite sayings.  She believed she could... so she did.
and then she did it again.........
and again.......

 It's happened again.  I've gotten obsessed over another craze and this time it's Memory Dex Cards!
Warning... this blog post is PICTURE HEAVY!

 I can't stop making these!  I even get up every morning and make one before I go work.  It's consuming my brain at all hours of the night!
 I think it's because they are so quick and easy to make.  There's no big time slot required to make one from start to finish.  They don't take a lot of supplies.  They are great for using up all those little bits and pieces left over from other projects.
 They are a great way to try new things, new colors and techniques.
I have tried to make the majority of mine "inspirational".  It's fun to flip through and see all the positive quotes.
 But sometimes... I just have to add a little Tiffany's
... and Kate Spade.  Who doesn't love those?
 We are having such a great time in our Facebook Group "Memory Dex Swaps".  You should see the
 creative talents of our members!  They keep upping the bar and I love it!   Please come and join us!

 Some of our members like to swap cards with one another, and others are making them for themself.
 Either way, we love to see what you're creating and inspire one another.
 You never know what your Memory Dex might look like.  The card above was inspired by a raining afternoon.
 And this one was inspired by a card I saw in Walgreens.
 What would your card look like?  Would you stamp on it?  Would you watercolor (oh how I wish I could watercolor).
Or maybe you will make a yummy yarn bow and attach it?
Or, just maybe you're a shaker card kind of person?  This was inspired by a card I saw on instagram.
 With brave wings she flies...... I think we all need that reminder now and then
Well Hello there!

Oh hey!  I mean, really the possibilities are endless!
 Make a difference.  Simple enough.
 Just say "hi."
 No significance to the #8, but I've always liked it because it reminds me of the sign for infinity.
 Another Hello.  That's all
 I decided to use up some of my Planner Society kits and created a few more dex cards


 and then there was this Happy Mail Stamp set that was screaming to be used.
 and who doesn't need a heart shaker
 Forgot to punch the holes before I took a picture.  I get so excited when I complete one.

Hello, beautiful!

Sometimes, you're just feeling blessed!

or maybe you want to celebrate "friends"
 My favorite place to be.....

Lemonade anyone?

I've got lots more to share, but I think I'll save a few for later.  I wouldn't want you to think I've completely lost it! :)

If you'd like to join in the fun, here are some fun products to get you started:

Memory Dex Swapping

Hello there!  Thanks for stopping by!  I have a new obsession!  Memory Dex Swapping!


Heidi Swapp came or with the Memory Dex system over a year ago. Of course, I went it and bought all of the supplies and accessories, but it ended there.  Heidi created this with the idea that you could make little scrapbook pages/memories on these little cards and have them on display. Awesome!  You can see that concept here  

A friend and I had an idea to make these fun little cards as little pieces of art and trade them... and well... the idea of swapping Memory Dex cards has taken off from there!  

Here are some I've recently created:

This one is using a new paper pad by Trimcraft and it's available at Michaels.  The texture of this Editpaper is Amazing!


I love using lots of different layers 


And trying new things (like distressed edges)

I have a fun video (lined below) to show you how I created this fun bicycle card. 


These are just to quick, easy and fun to create.  


It's fun to use acetate and create a see through  card like this one.  

I have lots more to show you but I'll save that for another post. If you'd like to join in with Memory Dex card Swapping join our Facebook Group called "Memory Dex Swaps". 

See my video below for a free cut file and fun background technique using your Cricut or Silhouette.
