Last week I had the enormous privilege of featuring on a Scrapbooking and Cards Today blog post. This was a huge honour and I was so grateful to be able to represent Stampin’ Up! I thought you might like to see the projects too, and hopefully be inspired to try something like these yourself.
When you first open a Stampin’ Up! catalogue, there’s always so many amazing items you miss, and always a favourite few that stand out. The Spring Summer Catalogue was no different. My eyes fell on the Petal Passion Suite and I drank it all in… Monochrome black and white papers, a watercolour look huge stamp set, coordinating dies and a Memories & More Card Collection. My favourite things all in one beautiful Suite, so this is the beautiful Suite I’d like to share with you today.
My first project was a 12″x12″ scrapbook page, using the Petal Passion Memories & More Card Collection and the coordinating Petal Passion Designer Series Papers (or DSP).
I had set my Stampin’ Up! team a sketch challenge at one of our get-togethers, so I decided to base my layout roughly on this. Here’s the sketch…
I decided to use the pre-printed Memories & More cards down the left hand side and the embellishments included in the collection to frame my photos. The background is a 12″x12″ sheet of Whisper White Card Stock and a piece of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper.
Each the flowers embellishments is sticky backed but I popped them up with Stampin’ Dimensionals to give depth. I used some flowers from the coordinating Petal Palette Stamp Set and Calypso Coral ink.

Envelope Mini Album:
My second project with this beautiful Suite is a mini album using our Whisper White Narrow Note Cards and Envelopes.
I made each envelope into a pocket and slotted in a Memories & More card with a Circle Tab Punch handle and their initial on it. My husband and four boys wrote down a special memory and write it on the card for their pocket. I then added a photo and some embellishments to their page and a pocket or embellishment and quote on the opposite side. The envelopes were scored to give them a little spine and then glue together front to back to form a book. Using the white card from packs of DSP, I just added a stiffer front and back cover and spine to protect them and covered it with the DSP.
The covers for each page of the album are pieces of the Designer Series Paper, embellished with the Petal Passion Framelit Dies and the Memories & More Card Collection embellishments. I used Berry Burst Card Stock and Ink Pad to add colour to the album and the Labeler Alphabet Stamp Set to add my family’s names and initials.
Petal Passion Card:
My last project using this beautiful Suite, is a simple card. The Memories & More cards make perfect quotes for albums, backgrounds for scrapbook pages and also stand alone images on cards.
I used some Berry Burst Card Stock for the card base and embossed it with the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and the strip of black and white is from the Petal Passion DSP. The floral image and ‘Love’ word are from the Card Collection with a little stamped sentiment from the Petal Palette Stamp Set In Pear Pizzazz ink.
I have loved using this versatile card collection, stunning papers and wonderful Stamp Set and hope you feel inspired to preserve some memories of your own with it. You can see the original post here and will find lots of other inspiration too!
