Quick and simple cards with Big Plans Memories and More Card Pack

Want some quick and easy ideas for cards? Today's cards literally took me 15-20 minutes from start to finish for all 3 cards!

The Big Plans card pack was one of the things which really caught my eye at the Demonstrator launch of the 2018 Stampin' Up! Annual Catalogue in Sydney in April. I think it was a combination of the colour combination and the cute design. Most people think these are just for pocket scrapbooking, but WOW do we have a surprise for you!

Our Memories and More packs have had a makeover, and with the cardstock weight stickers now included, they are as equally suited to card making as they are to memory keeping. I tend to mix it up and do both. This card kit also coordinates with our Big Plans Planner Kit. The colours are Calypso Coral, Gray Granite, Pineapple Punch and Whisper White.

Here's a closer look at the BIG PLANS Memories and More card pack. The four sheets in the upper right hand corner are cardstock weight stickers.

The other very cool thing, is that this year we have also introduced note cards and envelope packs in 2 sizes which are PERFECTLY sized to use with these cards (which makes them super quick and easy to create cards with). As you can see in the cards below, just add a card to the card base, and you have a perfect fit with a slight mat around the outside.

For this card, I have used one of the 6x4" cards for the first layer, and then cut 2 pieces from smaller cards for the other layers (the greeting was already printed on the card). Then I just added some rhinestone jewels and silver and white bakers twine (all the products I have used are available in my online store and are linked to at the end of my post). See how perfectly the cards fit the new Memories and More note cards and envelopes (this is the large pack).

For my second card, I have just used one 6x4" card onto one of the base cards, and used a greeting and washi stickers from the sticker sheets. All I needed to add was some rhinestone jewels.

For my final card, I have just used one of the 6x4" quote cards and added that to a base card. All I needed to finish this card was some of the cardstock weight stickers and rhinestone jewels.

Art with Heart Team Stampin Up Heart of Christmas 2017: Week 14 with Merry Little Christmas Memories and More Card Pack

Hello  crafty friends. It's time for Heart of Christmas Week 14! I hope your Christmas card stash is starting to take shape as much as mine :) This weekly Christmas card blogging commitment has really helped with my motivation. The fabulous new Holiday Catalogue starts selling on Friday 1st September too, so you will be able to get your hands on the fabulous new Christmas products.


Carrying on from the team blog hop last week, I have had more of a play with the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More card pack. These are multipurpose cards which can be used for pocket style scrapbooking, traditional scrapbooking or even made into cards. Last week I used them in scrapbooking and one card, and today I have made 3 more Christmas cards using cards from the pack.

For this card I have used one of the 3x4 cards, with one of the 6x4 overlays (included in the pack). My card base is Tranquil Tide, and the base paper Merry Music Designer Series Paper (also in the Holiday Catalogue).

Extra embellishments added to the card were some glimmer paper, some adhesive Rhinestone jewels and the beautiful 7/8" striped ribbon from the Holiday Catalogue.


For this card I have just used one of the black and white 3x4" cards, and teamed it with some Merry Music Designer Series Paper and Berry Burst cardstock. My embellishments this time are coordinating Berry Burst ribbon (from the Annual Catalogue), silver mini sequin trim, silver metallic thread and one of the new Year of Cheer embellishments from the Holiday Catalogue.

For my last card I have used another of the 3x4" cards, and used some of the cardstock stickers with Rhinestone jewels as the embellishment. My base cardstock is Cherry Cobbler and the Olive Olive paper is from the Colour Theory Designer Series Paper stack. At the base of the card I have embellished with a cardstock strip cut using the Decorative Ribbon border punch.

Art with Heart Stampin' Up! Team August Blog Hop: Holiday Catalogue Inspiration

Be sure to request your copy of the catalogue today!


I wanted to show you some ways I have used the Merry Little Christmas Memories and More pocket scrapbook card pack from the Holiday Catalogue. This is a pack of 72 double sided pocket scrapbook cards (52 3x4" and 20 6x4"). The pack also includes 2 sticker sheets and 4 acetate overlay cards, all for just $17.50. The colours are Basic Black, Cherry Cobbler, kraft, Lemon Lime Twist, Old Olive and Whisper White. 

First up, I have used them in some traditional pocket scrapbooking, The sticker sheets are great for adding extra embellishment to photos (I love using words especially) and the colours are great for Christmas photos.

Cards 1

You can also use the cards in 12 x 12 scrapbook layouts, either as journaling cards, or also as embellishments by cutting up the bits you need. I have used a card for the title, journaling and also the Lemon Lime Twist patterned circle top right on this layout. I've also used some of the beautiful Merry Music Designer Series Paper.

Card 3

Finally, I have used one of the 3x4 cards on a Christmas card. I really liked this card with the multicolour baubles and it was easy to coordinate the cardstock and embellishment colours. 

Card 7

I've also used a couple of other Holiday Catalogue products on this card, including the Foil Snowflakes and Year of Cheer Embellishments.
