Wow, new and exciting changes are happening over at KI Memories. As trends change companies need to rethink their styles and change too. KI Memories has certainly done that and in a big way.
Their new line Flashback is fun, trendy, and very easy to create with. Polaroid frames, hexagon shapes, film strips, graphic stamps, glitter die cuts just to name a few items that I loved. I was amazed at how quickly I pulled together a layout and card using the supplies that I pulled for the recipe challenge. Truthfully, if you look at my layout and card you might be hard pressed to know it is actually mine but I was so moved my the materials in my hands that what emerged was a fun new style for me that I really like.
The Flashback “Recipe” Challenge
So let’s talk about the recipe challenge. First the team picked a color scheme: blue, brown, pink/red, with an optional use of white. Then we decided to add certain embellishments in the mix.
- First on the list were the washi tapes (love them),
- Next were the stamps, (swoon), and
- Lastly were the polaroid frames, (double swoon)!
Truthfully there wasn’t a paper or an embellishment in the collection that I wouldn’t have wanted six of!
My Scrapbook Layout
So I sorted the product out by colors I needed first and then I started picking the items that I felt went best together. As these items were coming together I felt it was time to pick a picture so I looked through my photos that I wanted to scrap and came across a photo that I loved which had been lightly sepia toned when it was printed. I also realized that the smile on my daughter’s face would be perfect paired to some of the embellishments that I had picked out such as the Smile Washi Tape and the Smile polaroid photo frame. After those pieces fell into place, the rest was easy.
My card was also a lot of fun to make. The contrasting colors of orange and blue looked amazing on the brown background paper. Talk about eye catching. I had to use another Polaroid frame and this time picked one with a word that doubled as the title of the card. Then I started looking for stickers that would compliment the title that I had started to create and Love this Memory and Sweet Life were the perfect mix for the card.
I hope that you enjoy the layout and card that I made for you today. I want to thank KI Memories for giving us this wonderful opportunity to use their newest products in our projects. I look forward to even more fun and trendy product coming soon.
