I'm so glad that you are here today! I've been working on a very special project for the past few weeks and I'd like to share some of the componants of it. My father in law is turning 90 this month and my sister in law and I are planning a party for him. We want to make this really special for him so we are doing some unusual and creative things. Last week I shared the cover of the SN@P album I decorated that is going to be a multi use book. It will hold the cards that he receives, pictures of him and each of his guests and shipping tags that the guests will use to leave him a greeting or memory of him. I decided to create this all in one book to conserve space, he lives in a one bedroom apartment and does not like too many nic-nacs hanging around. Anyway, I again am using the Simple Stories Documented product line for these additional projects. You can see all the Memory Works products here including the Simple Stories products that I used for this project. I covered an empty fruit can with rope and added a few embellishments and this will be used to hold sharpie markers for the guests to use to sign the shipping tags...
We wanted to have a display of pictures of my father in law through the years and I saw a really neat idea on Pinterest and we are copying it. We will be spray painting a tree branch and hanging these pictures on the branches. I printed the pictures (so at to not use the originals) and then attached to shipping tags and finished off with Simple Stories Documented 6 x 6 paper. I tied some jute through the hole on the top of the tag and we will hang them from the tree. It will be a "Family Tree" of sorts.
I created this pennant to use as a prop for the photos. I wanted something special to document the ocassion and I think this will be great. Again, Simple Stories was used but this time I used Generations.
Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope I have shown you how versatile the products are that you can get from Memory Works. These fabulous products can be used for so much more than cards and layouts.
