MEMORYDEX BOX CARD #1 – LOVE YOU

Hello hello, welcome back! Did you get the free cut file for your very own Memorydex Box yesterday? Visit that post to watch the tutorial and download the cut file. Today I’m sharing Card #1 – Love You.

I’m working with pretty Hey Hello by Jen Hadfield for Pebbles Inc. After I bought this super cute collection, I barely dipped into it. Such a shame! This entire project is an effort to scrap-bust and use all the pretty things I’ve got on the back burner.

I’ve designed Card #1 – ‘Love You’ with a pretty cut file by the lovely Paige Evans. Rather than paper backing the cut file, I popped the letters up with 3d foam tape. Both types of letters are include, so you can make it your own. Click this link for a free Studio3 cut file, Memorydex Box Card #1 – Love You

The Studio3 cut file will download in a ZIP Folder. Double click the folder and the cut file will pop out. Drag the Studio3 cut file on to the mat in the Silhouette Design Studio and away you go.

If you don’t have a Silhouette and want to work with an SVG, send me an email. It’sΒ  Kellymadeit.wordpress@gmail.com and I’m happy to send you the SVG. Unfortunately the file type, SVG, isn’t able to be added to my WordPress website. If you want to do the entire project, I’ll continue to send you the SVG each week, for each new card. You only need to contact me once!Β 

Cut File for Memorydex Box Card #1 -

This is what it looks like when you open it.

The white, odd shaped item is the base of the card. I cut it twice, once from white AC Cardstock and once from my patterned paper. I taped them together and stitched around the edge in white thread on my sewing machine. This provides a nice sturdy base to build your card on.

Once you have the card base made, cut out ‘Love You’ (I used Bazzill Ocean Smooth CS). Then, cut out the letters of your choice.

The layered hearts are also included in the cut file. I added a dab of glue to sandwich three together and ran it through my sewing machine.Β  I’ve used floral stickers from the collection to decorate the letters a bit more. I’m sure we all have oodles of stuff to use up. A couple of pretty ephemera pieces from the same collection added more charm. Use what YOU have from your favourite collections.

@KellyMadeIt Memorydex Card 1d

These cards, while small, are almost like a mini layout. Here’s some ideas to use up that stash!

  • Add texture with stitching
  • pop up the layers with foam tape
  • add sequins or enamel dots
  • Use lot’s of patterns
  • add some cute ephemera pieces

I’d really love to see what you make, be sure to tag me on Instagram @kellymadeit, so I can cheer you on! If you have any questions at all, let me know below in comments.

Thanks so much for creating with me today !

Cheers, Kelly πŸŒΈπŸ’›

    1. You are adorable ! It’s been fun getting out this collection. I bought IT ALL, did one layout then got some new stuff and went on. I have to get back to using my purchases more fully and so I thought this would be a good way. Do you ever use your Cameo? xox K

      1. True confessions: I’m up to HERE with my cameo. The last time I used it it kept forcing me to log in over and over again. It was so frustrating that I haven’t been back. Sharon asked me to cut some base cards for her, so I need to screw up my courage. I love what they can create, but my luck doesn’t seem to last with this gadget.

        1. Well drats ! That’s a bummer and sounds really weird. You know what might be a good thing to do? Put your cut file library on a external stick then take Silhouette Studio off your computer. Then reload the SW with the latest update.
          If you ever want to sell it, I would totally buy it from you but then there’s: how the heck would I get it home, LOL πŸ’›πŸŒΈπŸ’›

    2. Hi hi Marlene! I don’t know where my reply went but it seems to have disappeared! Incase you didn’t see it, thanks so so much. It’s fun creating something and sharing it. I’m sure you feel the same when you participate in a group quilt. Passes the days, especially the rainy ones like today xoK

      1. There have been no quilt or sewing groups for over a year now. I sure do miss it and they probably won’t start up again. Most of us are coming to that age where it’s time to move on. It was fun while it lasted. Keep enjoying it all while you can. Love and hugs.
