Product Name: Making Memories Panorama Collection
The prices in this collection start from about $1 for a single sheet of paper. Most of the embellishments are under $5, and the treasure box is just under $10.
Many scrapbook manufacturers have recently introduced collections of travel-themed papers and embellishments. Since many of us like to scrapbook our vacations, these are a great idea, especially since many vacation destinations are not featured in a specific product line. Among all these various travel papers, the Making Memories Panorama Collection is a great choice. This collection includes individual papers with generic travel themes such as airplanes and palm trees, as well as alphabets, trims, trading cards, and embellishments.
The highlight of the Panorama collection is the Treasure Box Embellishment Kit. This cute little box contains buttons, tags, trim, pins, and stamps. All of the embellishments match perfectly with the papers and are fun to use.
This collection is very easy to use by itself or in combination with other products. Use the color tool to find matching cardstock.
Tips & Techniques:
- Use papers and embellishments from this collection together for quick travel pages.
- Take photos in the airport or on the plane and use this collection to highlight the journey, perhaps for a child’s first flight. Journal about flight-related subjects such as what you did to amuse yourself on the plane, where you changed planes, or how you dealt with jetlag.
- Once you finish using the embellishments, use the treasure box to store travel mementos. Use your scraps to alter it or leave it as is.
- Use these papers to scrap a travel-related event such as getting your first passport.
- Use the 8” x 8” album kit to make a coordinated vacation album, supplemented with papers from other collections for specific events.
Project Ideas & Examples:
Here are some vacation layouts I made about our trip last summer using the Panorama collection. We took a very long flight and changed planes several times on our way. I took several photos during the journey and put them in a collage on the Exploration Words paper. I loved some of the words on the paper, such as “adventure” since they were the same words we were using in our discussions. I placed my photos to make sure my favorite words were visible, covering the ones that weren’t as applicable. The straight pins from the Treasure Box were the perfect embellishment on this layout.
For the layout “Land Tour,” I used the Airplane paper. Although I had originally envisioned using this paper to document the flight, it worked well for our visits to the sites of historical plane crashes. The journaling tag and pin are also from the Treasure Box.
