Supplies: Bazzill Chiffon cardstock, Creative Imaginations Corrugated Paper (Kraft), My Mind's Eye So Sophie "Graceful" patterned papers, Marvy square punch, EK Success scallop punch, American Crafts stamp, Tsukineko ink (Rich Cocoa), Darice hemp cording, machine stitching.
Another view. Each square is attached with a pop dot for more dimension. And if you were wondering about punching the corrugated paper, it was pretty easy with this punch, but I think I would avoid a more intricate border pattern. The paper is pretty thick, so a bigger, simpler pattern works best.

***Edited to add the measurements*** This card measures 9 inches long by 4 inches wide, so the base cardstock was cut at 9 x 8 and folded in half. Thanks to Victoria for the comment :)

Here's a close-up of the Versamark background. If you've never used Versamark, you should! LOL...it's a watermark ink, so it just makes a very subtle background, but it adds some visual interest without adding a distracting color. It's also very slow-drying, so it's great to use with embossing powders.
And here's a close-up of the cute little "hi" stamp. Oh yeah...by the way...this stamp is the one I used with the Versamark for the yellow background. I love how the word "hi" didn't show up using the Versamark and made my little stamp that much more versatile. YAY!!! :)

Here is a close-up. I don't know if you can see the glitter all that well, but it sure does look pretty in real life :)

The inspiration for my title came from one of the stamps I used on it. The set is from Technique Tuesday, and it is just fantastic. So many stamps are geared towards card-making, but this set is awesome for scrapbooking. And I got SO MUCH use out of it. Here is my inspiration: "Memories are delightful little things"
And here is my finished product, minus pictures. ***I will be teaching this project as a class at my LSS, Pages In Progress, on Saturday, March 13, 2010. Space is very limited (10 seats), so if you're in Tucson or the surrounding areas and want to take this class, please contact the store. Cost is $45, and it includes the shadowbox.
