Making Memories is back, baby!  What?  You didn’t know they were gone?  Well, technically I guess they weren’t, but from a design team member’s perspective, it felt like they were gone.  There were behind the scenes transitions and changes, and after designing for Making Memories for nearly a decade, I found myself really really really missing them over these last few months.  Imagine my delight when I got that e-mail a few weeks ago, telling me they were ready to get busy with a design team again!  My very first assignment, which was for CHA, of course, was to work with their brand new holiday line, “believe.”

This is the layout I created:


I love the true reds and greens, along with the lighter shades mixed throughout the papers and embellishments.


And do you know what else I like? I like the pops of black and gold – kind of traditional, but kind of unexpected at the same time.


The colors and designs are so easy to mix and match – and the embellishments are just plain fun to work with!


Here’s a peek at the entire line:


and the embellishments:


…and there’s a 6x6 pad too!!  Isn’t it fun?!?

Be sure to stop by next week…I just might will definitely be sharing some more Making Memories love…and it’s quite possible I’ll have some goodies to share with one lucky reader! ;)


  1. Gorgeous! I love the hanging tags and the flower cluster. Just beautiful!

  2. I'm so glad they have a release, I was a little worried about what was going to happen with them. Love your layout!
