A while back, I was cruising the gallery over at Splitcoast Stampers and came across this darling Memory Game by one of the members there "jace", Jeanne Kenney. I emailed Jeanne to see if she would let me share her project with you here and was delighted when she said "yes"!
Here is a bit about Jeanne and the project she created:
I've been stamping for several years - I create many, many cards, love making bookmarks, and also use my papercrafting supplies for fun kid projects - everything from tooth fairy boxes from Altoid tins (using the A Muse fairy stamp) to stuffed animal collars using ribbon (complete with stamped tags) to memory games! The inspiration for my memory game came from the Splitcoast web site - an artist there (Waxyo) made an awesome mini-game with small circle punches. I wanted to create a set with bigger cards that used more images.The A Muse stamps are perfect for a memory game because they mix-and-match so well - so the set looks coordinated even with the different images! This set uses the Marvy giga scalloped square punch, the confetti white cardstock is cut to 2" square, and the images are colored with Copic markers.My daughter (age 6) loves her game and it stands up to frequent use. The scalloped edges make it easy for little fingers to turn the cards. We store our set in an empty 4-piece Whitman's chocolate box that was decorated by my daughter. My daughter also likes to make her own memory games - it's a wonderful rainy day activity - I'll stamp images for her and then she works intently on "careful coloring" (her term) for about 45 minutes. She's so proud to make gifts for her friends!
