Tropical Oasis Birthday stampinup by Pretty Paper Cards

This is a fun small booklet that I made for my son for his birthday. He loves the beach and surfing, and when I looked at the Tropical Oasis Suite I knew it would be perfect, especially the Memories & More Card Pack.

The card pack contains 50 cards, some are 4″ x 6″ and some are 3″ x 4,” and there are sheets of stickers! These are perfect for making cards and all kinds of crafts. And, they make it super easy to create a little booklet like this.

Here’s a video showing the cards:

The booklet was made with four pieces of Very Vanilla card stock cut to 5″ x 3-1/2.” Each piece is scored on the left side at 1/2,” this will be the edge of the booklet where the pieces are later stapled together. I decorated each piece of card stock.

The front piece/cover of the booklet has a piece of Mango Melody card stock which is dry embossed with the Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder. The words were cut from Terracotta Tile card stock using the Well Written Dies. I added a sticker from the card pack and a little Daffodil Delight heart cut with the Well Written Dies.


I love being able to grab these Well Written Dies! They have so many words for different occasions. They are really a staple in my craft room. If you don’t have them, you must get them 🙂

I then just began to decorate the pages with stickers and cards from the card pack. You can use the 3″ x 4″ cards the size they are or cut some of them down, as I did, for variety.

For the last page I used a card with space to write and sign my card.

I stapled all the pages together on the left edges and covered the staples with a piece of Braided Burlap Trim. I attached the trim with Tear & Tape to make it secure.

I really loved the way the little booklet turned out and it was so easy to make with the Memories & More cards!
