Jo-Ann Gift Cards - The Gift that Inspires

Product Review: Making Memories Paper Reverie

Making Memories products have been staples in my craft room for many years, and I’m delighted to see that they continue to produce products I want to buy and use. Their new collection called Paper Reverie is now in stores, and is one of my favorite new paper lines right now. What I appreciate about this collection, beyond the beautiful designs, is that it’s very neutral. These products can be mixed and matched with so many other items in my stash, and the classic look is one that will suit my crafting needs for a long time to come.

In other words- I’ll be investing in a lot of this beautiful product.

Making Memories Paper Reverie products used:
Stripe Paper
Text Paper
Gems & Glitter Tape
Butterflies
Shimmer Alphabet Stickers
Cardstock Alphabet Stickers
Gem & Brad Combo Pack
Baubles
other: pen, glitter

Paper Reverie is actually made up of four separate sub-collections (Brun Antique, Metallique, Noir, Sienne). Each has unique paper designs, but similar embellishment options. They all have a vintage and distressed feel, but are neutral enough in both color and style to be used on any number of projects.

I can envision holiday layouts, special meal place cards, lovely thank-you notes, everyday layouts, and home decor projects being created with these lines.

Above is one of my favorite papers from the collection. The glitter and the pattern are just so lovely.

The baubles are one of my favorite embellishment picks, although I really don’t think there are any bad choices from this collection’s options.

With hints of sparkle and glamour, and styles that work so well with many other lines in my stash, I see this collection as a fantastic fall buy. I’ll be creating with and enjoying this line for a long time to come.

Paper Reverie is now available at Scrapbook.com and twopeasinabucket.com.
