It’s been a little while since I last posted and I wanted to share with you something I’ve been loving this past month. Have you heard of Memorydex? I’m going to share the magic of memorydex with you in this post and hope it inspires you to also try this little crafty project out for yourself
What is Memorydex?
Memorydex was created by Heidi Swapp a few years ago, she has a whole product line dedicated to this too! You can buy the cards pre-made as I have, or there’s also dies to make your own, and a punch too, which is on my Christmas wish list 🙂
It’s a play on words with Roladex – do you remember those from years gone by? Basically its little cards that instead of holding contact details for your business partners, they hold little memories.
Each little card is approx 4 x 3 inches – a perfect size if you’re looking to scrap bust your project life/journalling cards. I’ve chosen to keep mine in a little gift box rather than use the ‘rolodex’ stand. I have added some bolsar wood at the bottom, but I’ve seen paper straws used really well, and these usually come in very cute designs too.
What are Memorydex used for?
So many crafters swap these and share in Happy Mail. Check out IG and #memorydexswaps and you’ll see just how popular this trend is right now. I’ve also see a lot of crafters using as part of their scripture work, adding quotes and embellishing these. I’m using to keep a sample of all my paper collections – slowly working through – I’ll keep my gallery updated below as I create more.
I also think they’ll make great gifts and will be a novel way of sharing photos and memories instead of using an album – as the dimensions these make them perfect to brighten up a desk or craft room.
The other aspect for me, and why I think these are magical, is that I’m very time poor during the week – [I am of course a weekendcraftaholic], however these project take just 10 mins to do – depending how involved you want to get, so they’re a great little, crafty project to do when you’re short on time. You can create anything you want! I love the challenge of working on a small area – after working on a 12×12 layout, it really does stretch you creatively which I also love.
