Combining Pink Paislee and Heidi Swapp: Memorydex

Hey everyone, I'here today sharing with you an off-the-page tutorial which features one of my favourite techniques: layering. I am sharing with you a Heidi Swapp Memorydex tray that I have created inserts for featuring the Take me Away designer collection by Paige Evans.

Here is the completed tray:

To complete this project you will need: a MemoryDex tray, a MemoryDex punch and dies, papers & embellishments from the Take Me Away collection.

To begin with I cut the patterned papers and some printed vellum from my stash to size, ready to roll through and cut out using a die cutting machine like the We R Memory Keepers Evolution machine.

Once I had die cut the cards out I placed them into the tray trying to get a variance of card design, pattern, and colour.

I added a few handmade cards simply from using the Take Me Away cut apart sheet and my MemoryDex punch.

It is so easy to customise inserts within the tray using this punch. You could use 3×4 cards, photos, tags, or even die cut ephemera to add as a separation between the cards.

I wanted to create this MemoryDex to house all the selfies that my family and I take together that make me smile. I printed them on my Epson Picturemate using the 4 to a page setting so the photos were small in size.

I chose the title card to say ‘smile’ as I thought it was fitting for a selfie MemoryDex. I embellished with layers of papers (one of my favourite layering pieces) a doily, and chipboard from the collection.

To change up the card textures I cut some of the cards using vellum from my stash. This particular vellum is by Crate Paper and has a gold foil which complements this collection beautifully. I embellished this card with a punched circle from patterned paper, layered with a wood veneer and a die cut tag.

For this card, I added a family selfie combined with lots of layers of paper, wood veneer, and chipboard pieces.

For some of the cards I simply embellished them with layers comprising of a doily and chipboard pieces.

Some of my layers are simply punched out circles from patterned papers. I added a stamp ‘you & me’ using the Take Me Away roller stamp at the top of the tab on the card.

Due to the size of the cards, I was able to use scraps of patterned paper from the collection to layer with.
