"The Best" Day 3 -Making Memories Animal Crackers
The first time I saw the Making Memories Animal Crackers Line I was in love. Every sheet of paper is adorable. I normally will buy two sheets of paper that I like, but I found myself buying three and four sheets of this stuff. It does not disappoint. The line also has tons of coordinating embellishments that are equally sweet and perfect with the papers.
Here are a few projects/layouts I made using the Animal Crackers Jack line, along with some thoughts of why this stuff rocks so much. (There’s an Animal Crackers Ella (girl) line too, but I think most of the Jack line would totally work for a girl.)
I love the zig-zag edge on this paper and the versatility of distressed polka dots. This picture doesn’t do the paper justice. Moreover, the accent letter paper is flocked velvet. It is amazing. Seriously, I have about 6 sheets of it. I just wanted to frame it – it is that fabulous.
Making Memories also offers these adorable mini spiral pads of journaling tags – they are so cute. The fiber accents are also Making Memories. I love the stars in particular. I could have used yards and yards of it.
The polka dots on the below paper have a pretty, clear spot varnish on some of them. It is subtle and very versatile.
This paper might be my favorite because it has star cut-outs peppered throughout the paper (you can kind of tell from this picture). I love it! I also put glossy accents on the chipboard alphabet stickers, which is why they are a bit shimmery. This is an easy technique that really makes a big difference. I think the glossy accents ties the letters to the epoxy accents beneath the picture.
I love that everything in the Animal
Crackers line works SO well together. Check out how all these scraps came together to make this layout. So fun and so easy.
Mommy and me
Again, I used glossy accents on the chipboard letter stickers to make them pop off the page and look like the epoxy accents. I love this technique lately.
I made this little canvas sign to hang on Elias’s door when he is sleeping. I filled the star cut-out with glossy accents and then sprinkled the adhesive with silver glitter. The Shhhh… was cut out using the Xyron PCS tool. (I think this sample is going to be on QVC at the end of the month when they feature the PCS!)
The Animals Crackers line also has scrapbook kits with a little bit of everything in them- paper, embellishments, a matching album, etc. Check out the cute cover.
You can find these products online and at a variety of big craft stores. I have also seen Animal Crackers at Target. I heart Target.
