New Memory Keeping Class!

New Memory Keeping Class!

Share YOUR Story!

My first experience with scrapbooking was 10 years ago next month in a scrapbooking Bible Study at our church.  I was INSTANTLY hooked!  So, next week I’m going “back to my roots” and starting a Memories and More Scrapbooking Class and I cannot WAIT!!  Scrapbooking, by definition, is just words and pictures put together.  And it’s not just a “chick thing.”  Both Winston Churchill and Mark Twain were scrapbookers!  

It’s SO important to preserve our memories in both words and pictures so our story will be told to the next generations.  Having been widowed when my kids were 19 and 17, it’s very important to me that I share with them and my precious grands the stories that only I know and remember.  That’s the main reason I have such a strong emotional attachment to memory keeping.  Here’s a pic taken a few years back of the two of them.   D&B

So what memories do YOU want to preserve?  Stampin’ Up has the PERFECT answer to memory keeping in our new Memories and More Memory Keeping System.  One of the best things about Stampin’ Up products is that everything is coordinated for you, and the products are very versatile.  The Memories & More Card Packs can be used on traditional scrapbook pages of any size, in our 12 X 12 or 6 X 8 Photo Pocket Pages, or to make cards or other projects.  Truly versatile!

Here are three different pages ALL done using the

Color Theory Memories & More Card Pack.

**Journaling Tips  (from a published author)

**Photography Tips (from a professional photgrapher)
