Today Allison Landy is Makign Memories’ guest designer.
Allison created a layout using some older Making Memories' products that she found in her scrapbook stash.
I'm a bit of a collector when it comes to travel themed scrapbook lines. Lucky for me, Making Memories has created some of the greatest travel lines ever, and I buy every, single, one of them. Even more exciting is that the lines play well together. So, when I was asked to guest blog, I knew exactly what I was going to grab. My daughter and I took a trip to Costa Rica for her 18th birthday back in 2010, and I still have plenty of photos to get into an album. To create the layout, I mixed and matched some of the Panorama and Great Escape product lines, cutting the papers into strips and layering them. I love the eclectic look of the paler and bolder colors all mixed together.
I then started adding more dimensional embellishments like the brads. Journaling always comes last in my process, and I often end up not sure where I want to write when I have more to say than I have room. I find that a great solution is to frame the layout with journaling. Not only do I get to say all that want to, I also give the layout a nice, finishing touch.
With summer nearing its end, isn't it time to start scrapping all those vacation memories you just finished creating?
