Abracadabra!! It's a twofer!!!


Welcome to Day 2 of Memory Box's new release blog blitz! Wow! my fellow designers have out did themselves, haven't they? How can I follow all that?

Be sure to check the blog twice a day for posts all week and leave comments--you might just win a NEW die or stencil from this collection!  

Well, how about a twofer!! I am all about finding the most uses out of one stamp, die etc. Remember this post? When I received the Cosenza tree border die # 98855, I knew how else I could use it. But first things first. 





I made a set of hello cards each color featuring a different season with the cosenza tree border die cut from various MB papers. I die cut cosenza tree border outline # 98864 from brown card stock. I added a matching strip of washi tape and using the new urban alphabet dies to add the hello.

NOW FOR THE MAGIC!! ABRACADABRA! Just say the magic words- Memory Box!


Do you see the magic? Do see the twofer? All those left over pieces from the cosenza tree border, minus their trunks made perfect little balloons!! How fun is that!! A subtle sponging of starry nights stencil and this bonus card was complete.

Don't forget to leave a comment to this post for a chance to win the Consenza Tree Border die.  Every blog post this week will have a chance to win a prize.  The deadline for submitting comments is 10:00pm EST on Sunday, March 30th.  Winners will be announced on the Outside the Box blog on Monday, March 31st.  Good luck!



What a cute die!,, it will have to go on my wish list. Maybe I'll get lucky!!

Great "twofer." I like that these could easily be given as a set for a gift!

Beautiful cards! The balloons are very cute. I love it when designers share alternative ways to use the dies. I often buy dies because of the alternative ways I can use them. The Consenza Tree border has many possibilities, I think it is a great die and it is on my list. Thank you for the inspiration today.

What wonderful cards! I really like seeing the four seasons and the birthday card is such a delight plus a great way to use scraps. This posting is a real encouragement for me to look for new ways to use things that I already have on hand!

Very clever idea and cute cards!! Hope to win!

What a great two for the price of one cards. Love the balloons!!!

Well that's just the cleverest thing. Adorable idea...love it.

I wouldn't have guessed that was the same die. Fantastic. Love the trees, thanks for showing the different colour ways, and love your balloon card. The star background is lovely

'Twofers' are great fun! Thanks for showing this one.

I LOVE these sweet little trees! What an adorable set of cards! They are all so lovely!

oh, you are just too clever! Fabulous use of your dies! Love the Consenza Tree Border die!

You did it! You raised the bar even higher for your fellow designers. Love these cards especially the balloons. Very clever!!

What a great idea for the balloons. Thanks for another great card idea. Hope I'll get the chance to win it!

Love this die. Makes me hopeful spring will finally show us warmer temperatures.

The cards are beautiful! Can't wait to see what you have in store for us next time.

this card is so nice, who wouldn't smile at opening the envelope and finding this.
Thank you so much for sharing and for the ideas, also for the chance to be a lucky winner ... I do hope it's me x

Great die & great cards! Love the way you made the die into 2 completely different looks!

Love the cute color coordinated cards with the washi tape. And the balloon card is absolutely adorable! Love it! Brilliant ideas!
