Sorry for the lack of blog posts lately! I decided to cut back on my scrapbooking and blogging this summer so I could enjoy more time with my kiddos. But a couple weeks ago I got a great offer that I couldn't refuse. I was asked to design for Making Memories!! Since the time I started scrapbooking in 2004, Making Memories has always been one of my favorite companies. I love their papers, I love their embellies, and I love their tools (I cannot scrap without my Making Memories trimmer!). As most people know, they have been going through a transition (you can read about it here), but now Making Memories is back in the groove and they are releasing more of the awesome and inspiring products they're known for.
They showcased Modern Millinery and Sarah Jane at Winter CHA, and these will be shipping in August (the release was delayed because of the acquisition, but these lines are definitely worth waiting for!!). They are releasing a new Christmas line at Summer CHA called Believe.
I fell in love with the Modern Millinery line the first time I saw it. In fact, it was my Winter CHA "Product Pick" on the Creating Keepsakes blog. What first caught my eye were the beautiful color combinations and the elegant paper designs (they had me at the rose paper!!). Then when I saw the gorgeous flowers, embellishments, and trims, my heart skipped a beat. I thought it was one of the most stunning scrapbooking collections I had ever seen. I was excited to get my hands on Modern Millinery, and I had an absolute ball playing with it! Here's a Modern Millinery layout I created for Summer CHA next week:
I used the beautiful Modern Millinery "Net Mini Dot Black" Textile paper as the background for this layout. It's real lace sewn onto cardstock. How cool is that?!?
I created two separate photo circles, then I handcut the roses and leaves out of the Statement Floral paper and used them to embellish the circles.
These gorgeous flowers, the pearl/rhinestone button, and the rhinestone trim are all part of this collection too! You can see the full collection here.
Be sure and check back later in the week because I'll be doing a GIVEWAY for some of these beautiful Modern Millinery products!!
