Clear Scraps Memory-Dex--Filled with Faith

Hi there everyone!  Laura here with you today sharing a project using one of the amazing NEW Memory-Dex from Clear Scraps!

I will warn you now you will LOVE these adorable new boxes!  This one is called the Regular DIY Wood Box.  You'll find both sizes and styles of boxes and all the cards in both acrylic and chipboard to fill 'em up in the Clear Scraps store in the "What's New" section HERE.   To create the box you can paint, cover with paper, whatever you choose.  I used white acrylic paint and brushed it on so it left the box with a distressed-like feel.   I painted the dowels that hold the cards in place black for a nice contrast.  After gluing the box together, the sides were decorated with pretty patterned paper strips matted on black cardstock, then some stickers popped up with foam tape.

To make the cards for the box, I started by painting the back of the chipboard cards black.

After they dried, I used a bold script stamp and white ink to stamp an image down the middle of the card.  I could have filled the card, but I liked the look of the edges.  You can easily do paper, pictures, etc on both sides, but thought I'd show a little different idea!  Next up was to decorate the front of the cards.

This particular card is one of the Vintage Chip Dividers--and all the different cards come in a THREE pack!  I traced it onto paper, cut it out, then glued it onto the chipboard and added a little embellishment.  The other 2 tags in this picture are nice little additions if you are creating on of these--just cut out the 3"x4" journal cards (or fussy cut images on them) and add a bit of twine or ribbon.  If you add some lined paper or an index card cut to fit, you can use these to journal on too--I'll add bible verses to mine!

A 4"x4" journal card trims down nicely to fit the Regular Chip dividers (square), the other cards pictured are from the Angel Chip Dividers, the Hearts Chi Dividers, and the Houses Acrylic Dividers.   These are so fun to mix and match and with 3 in a pack, the combinations and creative possibilities are endless!
