Memory Bound Treat Kits

We are excited to introduce you to our latest set of critter treat boxes for Valentine's Day and Easter: Bunny, Owl, and Fox! Our treat kits include all the supplies you need to make several boxes, perfect for giving to everyone on your gift list. Just add candy!

The Bunny Treat Box holds a small bag which can be filled with jelly beans, M&Ms, or any small candy. Bunny would be suitable for Valentine's Day or (of course!) Easter.

Given how much I love owls, I was only too happy to design an owl treat container! Our Owl Treat Box can be filled with small candies and would be perfect for Valentine's Day -- or any other special occasion!

I had so much fun creating this little fox! Our Fox Treat Box will hold a single Reese's Peanut Butter cup for your special Valentine.

All three treat boxes are available now at Memory Bound. They'll be lots of fun to make -- and even more fun to give!

We've got some great stuff planned in the new year at Memory Bound! We're starting things off with a series of Valentine Card Make-N-Takes beginning on Wednesday, January 4. Stop in anytime from 1 to 6pm and make an adorable card for someone special in your life. You'll love this Valentine designed by Katie using her favorite kraft paper and (of course!) a bit of twine! 

Our Valentine Card Make-N-Takes will be held each Wednesday in January, 1-6pm. We'll post a photo of each week's card on our blog a few days in advance. Hope to see you there!  Materials fee: $1-2

A bit of scrapbooking humor!

Somehow I don't think most of us will EVER run out of things to scrapbook!  LOL

Maggie's Tags of Christmas!

I stopped by Memory Bound recently and while there, I checked out the fantastic sample Christmas tags from Tim Holtz' 12 Tags of Christmas. You really MUST see them in person to appreciate the details! The tags are each works of art.

Then, on the same display, three additional tags caught my eye, but they weren't from Tim's series. Watch out, Tim! These are MAGGIE'S TAGS of CHRISTMAS! They are simple, understated, and beautiful!

Maggie used Tim's latest Seasonal Distress Inks to create her tags. She also incorporated ideas she picked up on Tammy Tutterow's blog (click here to visit Tammy's inspirational blog). Tammy is an instructor and has been a designer for many companies, including Ranger. Her work is beautiful and her blog has many wonderful instructional videos. Check it out!
Maggie used "de-bossing" on her tags -- she put the "bumpy" side of the embossing on the back of the tag. It creates an interesting effect! She also made great use of Tim's seasonal dies. You will love the pinecone die!

Thank you, Maggie, for sharing your beautiful samples and inspiring us all!
