Hi, my name is AnnaMarie Mondro, and I am so honored to be featured as a Guest Designer on the Making Memories blog!
Christmas is truly my *favorite* holiday, so when I was asked to showcase a layout featuring the new Twinkle line, I was in LOVE and knew exactly what photos I was going to use! I’ve been saving these photos for awhile now, waiting on the perfect line and feel of colors. These photos of my son’s first Christmas were just perfect for the range of beautiful reds and greens offered within this festive line. And one of the things I love most about Making Memories products are the double-sided papers which offer such a range in gorgeous patterns and colors, and for a scrapper like me, who loves to play with layers and bits and pieces of patterned paper, it is a perfect combination!
Another thing that I love about Making Memories is the choice of embellishments that color-coordinate so nicely with the papers, and which offer such nice options in terms of texture, dimensionality, and details. Not to mention the bling factor – oh MY! And yes, even though it is a *boy* layout, I still love to add some bling and shimmer to my pages. J Between the sparkly baubles and glittery buttons, shimmer die-cuts, and bling alpha, there are so many options for really enhancing the beautiful colors in this line and making my page POP!
And cannot forget to point out the *awesome* glitter boarder tape! The tape is so versatile, allowing you to trim it to a variety of desired sizes, or you can simply trim out the “pieces” you want for your layout!
Thank you Making Memories for allowing me this opportunity!
