Hi Friends! I have a new project to share with you today. We were challenged to make our own flowers using patterned papers and cardstock from our kits. I worked with the beautiful September 2020 Hip Kits to create two memorydex cards.



For the first card, I used white cardstock and patterned paper to create a heart-shaped base. I found an April 2019 HKC Rolled Flower cut file and created several 3D flowers. I covered half of a heart with them and used the Marigold chipboard stickers that came in the Embellishment Kit to embellish the rest of the card. On the back side, I used a couple of chipboard stickers as well as one of the Jane Hadfield wooden frames from the embellishment kit as well.



To create the second card, I cut the card shape using one of the Heidi Swapp Memorydex dies twice to create a pocket. I used a layered flower cut file designed by Paige Evans and cut the different layers alternating between patterned papers from the Main Kit and cardstock from the Cardstock kit. I machine stitched around the edges of both, the card and flower to add dimension and interest. I embellished it with a banner sticker for the title. I added three pictures inside the pocket along with my journaling using a couple of PinkFresh Studio tags from the Embellishment Kit.



I have a process video on my YouTube Channel showing you how I put together these memorydex cards. I hope it inspired you to get creative creating and try creating your own flowers to incorporate in your projects.

Make sure you visit the Hip Kit Club website to grab your Octobert 2020 kits. I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day! See you next time.
