Picture Memory Game

Here are pictures of the memory game I made for my niece Kaytrianna for Christmas. (I also made two more boxes for nieces and nephews on Daniel's side of the family). Kaytrianna is only two but I've been told she loves to play the game and say our names as she matches up our pictures! I thought it would be a great way for the little members of our families to remember what we looked like while we live in Toronto!

I used CTMH's Memory Game which comes with 24 - 3x3 chipboard cards in a sturdy box with a magnetic closure. I inked the edges, used Mod Podge to glue on the paper, stamped titles and a cut-out heart! I ordered the pictures already pre-sized from* which was a great time-saver and let me zoom in and print only what I wanted.

*Unfortunately, I just found out that has gone out of business as of January 3! They said that due to a struggling economy and tight competition they can't continue. For anyone that has ordered through them before, it is a big disappointment. I don't know of another company that offers the many different size options, the high quality and the customer service that they offered. I will really, really miss their business.

Birthday Wishes layout

These pictures are from Jeremy's 1st birthday and I had so many pictures that I wanted to include that I used a 8 x 12 flip flap to fit them all in! All supplies are CTMH and while the paper is retired you can always make layouts with it on Studio J!

Place a minimum order of $25 from the Autumn/Winter Idea book and get two new products for only $15 - that's a savings of almost $30!
