Here is a do-it-yourself embellished POCKET PAGES™ card created by new Design Team member Mary-Ann Maldonado. About this card, Mary-Ann writes:
"There is nothing better than adding a little pink to kraft and black. With the polka-dot background, I want to replicate the circle theme and punch selected papers with varying size circle punches. I added even more circles with pink sequins and small enamel dots. To contrast the circle repetition, I chose a pointy banner, double pointed sticker tag, and an arrow. Another repetitive theme on the card: doodling. Doodling with my favorite pen brought it to a whole other level."
We completely agree with Mary-Ann: the doodling on her card looks like it was stitched with a sewing machine! Such an awesome detail!
Hi there! My name is Mary-Ann and I am beyond excited to be joining the mambi team. I am originally from Maine, now residing in Massachusetts. I have followed my retired Marine around for 21 years, so we have lived in many extraordinary places. I am a mama to my best friend (Roman), his best friend (Flo - the dog) and her best friend (Leroy – the cat).
I remember crafting with my mom as a small child. Making our own holiday décor, personalized cards and macaroni art! However, I started scrapbooking on my dining room table in 2000 and now I consume the entire house! Scrapbooking pages are my passion but I love mini albums and cards too. I am a hoarder of many things: antiques, paper and embellishments, however my undiagnosed OCD helps keep it all in order. :) I hope to inspire you in the upcoming year and look forward to seeing you here on a regular basis.
