Happy New Year 2018
by Jenny Griffiths

Welcome Memory Box Friends and Happy New Year 2018

  Another year has whizzed by and in this time, Memory Box has brought us so many fresh and exciting dies and stamps to inspire our creations.  I planned to name my favorites here but my list grew and I realized there were too many to recap...and there are so many more on the way.  Can't wait for you to see what is coming soon.   2018 is going to be a stellar year!

Looking back over my Memory Box stamps and dies I selected a few favorites --some new, some older and some in-beween.  You may just have these in your stash already so here's a suggestion to create a New Year's card...quick, it's almost here!

 The Pinpoint Double Frame is a two-parter.  The inner rectangle cuts out completely and will fit snugly back in place but I wanted a little black background to peek through so I ever-so-slightly trimmed the inner rectangle piece smaller.  After piecing the sentiment together to read, "wishing you a happy" I stamped it on the trimmed rectangular panel and added the gold mirror numbers 2018.

The white panel (minus the center) was covered with foam mounting tape for a little "lift" and adhered to the black layer.

Next, the shiny Tall Pine and Small Quite Deer silhouette were added on the right side.

I can truthfully say the most difficult part of this card was photographing it without catching my own reflection in that shiny gold paper!  (My husband was laughing at me and my acrobatics as I was photographing the card--glad I could amuse you Sweetie.)

 Thank you for stopping by today!

 May you have a truly wonderful year-end season and look forward to 2018 with peace, hope and creativity in your heart.
