MM Idol Challenge #4

Wow, this was such a fun challenge from Making Memories >>> create 3 items that carry a theme and tie the event together. I thought about doing a birthday party theme, but then decided to go for an Easter party theme since that is coming up in a couple of weeks and there are so many fun things that can been done.

First, I designed the invitation from a MM plain chipboard bunny. The party info is on the back of the bunny. Placed the bunny plus grass and some chocolate eggs in a cellophane bag and made a coordinating topper.
Next, I created an organizer where I could store all of my recipe and game ideas for the party along with the guest info (addresses and phone numbers.) This will be great to have out at the party to help us remember all of the games we are going to play. It will also make repeating the party next year easy since all of the info will be organized in one place.


The 3rd item is this really fun Easter basket that I made out of 4 other MM chipboard bunnies. I am really happy with how this turned out.

Having Fun with the Making Memories Idol Contest!

I’ve been participating in the Making Memories Idol contest for the past few weeks and it has been so fun to create something new for each weekly challenge.

Each week, the public gets to vote for their favorite project and then the favorites get to move on to the next round. This week the challengers will go from 25 to 15, so every vote will count!

If you are interested in voting, you can sign up HERE. Voting is each Monday and Tuesday (ends at 4 pm Mountain Standard Time.)

Here is my project for the most recent challenge: (you can click on the image for a bigger view)


This was paper from Basic Grey and some basic items like buttons, stickers, rub-ons and ribbon from my stash. The assignment was to create something using these basic products. I am really excited about how this turned out!

Also, I used some of the paper, mask alpha and bling from our upcoming April kit for the 1st challenge. Take a look >>>

Hope you are looking forward to the April kit because it is so much fun to work with!

April Project Kit

We have the perfect Mother’s Day gift ready for you! Read on to learn more.

We are very excited about the newest addition to our club: The Project Kit. We wanted to create a kit that included everything you will need to create something meaningful for yourself or as a gift for someone else and we want to make it easy on you!


So for our debut Project Kit, we have put everything together that you will need to create this beautiful picture frame project. All you have to do is add a photo and some adhesive and you will have a special project completed in no time.

We think that this is the perfect gift for Mother’s Day, friend’s birthday, or even make one for yourself.

I made one celebrating my two daughters that we will display in our home.


Here is one that I made to give to my mom for Mother’s Day. (Hope she’s not reading this!)


This kit includes the frame (it has an easel back so it can stand on a table and glass to protect your picture), the paper, chipboard alphabet, and fibers.

We are also including a template that you can follow to cut the paper so that it fits perfectly around the label holder and clip at the top of the frame. We will also include simple instructions with tips and tricks too.

You can head on over to our Add-ons section to purchase your Project Kit. This will ship with your April kit for no additional shipping, or you can purchase it separately and it will ship right away.

Let us know what you think about this new project kit. We would love to hear from you!

April Peeks!

We are so excited about our April kit. The beautiful designs on each patterned paper are each a work of art. It is loaded with lots of fun embellishments, we know that you will be able to create so many wonderful things with this kit.

Here is a peek at some of the patterned paper (2 additional sheets of patterned paper will be in the kit.)


Here is a small peek at the paper with a few of the embellishments you can look forward to receiving.

We were sold out of April kits before March even started, so we ordered more product to make additional kits. If you are interested in purchasing this kit or starting a subscription, you can just check out through the current kit page. Since March is sold out, you will start with the April kit.

Hope you are looking forward to it!
