CTMH’s Memory Keeper Gift

posted in: Layouts | 10

I really wish I had gotten one of these before now.  They are now retired and no longer available and the one I bought for my own cards I decided to do this with it.  I really do love how this turned out and I’m more than happy to be giving it away.
A couple in our Bible Study group is getting married on Saturday.  I made a 9×9 Accordion Album for some of their wedding photos and their invitation.  The Memory Keeper was the perfect place to house it.
Here is the album (Don’t forget you can click on each photo to see them larger):

 

 And here are a few photos of the Memory Keeper:

There are a lot of Pearl Opaques and silver embossing.  The chipboard letters on the top of the box are K & Company.  The glitter was already there; I just inked them up in Indian Corn Blue.  The paper flowers were made with Tracey Mason’s help and the ribbon flower is made from White Daisy grosgrain.  I used lots of different stamp sets (including the new E-sized alphabet!) and sponged just about all the paper in Indian Corn Blue, since that was the colour in their invitation.  All the patterned paper is from Magnifique.  I just used the backs for a nice mono-chromatic look.

Thanks for checking out all these photos.  I’d love to hear what you think!

Happy Creating!

    Krista, this is gorgeous. The pictures don’t do it justice. I’m sure the happy couple was thrilled with their gift 🙂
