Mementos Week!

What's another one of my favorite new American Crafts embellishments? Mementos!

Mementos
Mementos are self-adhesive metal embellishments that add glamour to any project without over-the-top flash. The design team seriously rocked these embellishments and every day is going to be a treat! Starting with Caroline Ikeji and Poki Nobeno.

The Best Test by Caroline Ikeji

Caroline says, "I loved these frame Mementos from The Classics collection and I knew I wanted to use some of them to 'frame' my favorite patterns from the collection - sort of like pieces of art framed up on a wall! I cut and framed three bits of paper then added my photos to the opposite sides of the frame. I added embellishments to slightly overlap the frames."

Supplies: Sophisticated Jack Paper (35260) - Dear Lizzy Enchanted, Fashionable Peony Paper (35266) - Dear Lizzy Enchanted, Elated Iris Paper (35257) - Dear Lizzy Enchanted, Journaling Tickets (64005) - Just Write, Fantastic Limeade (53109) - Thickers, Prince (82303) - Mementos, Heartstrings (89384) - Premium Ribbon

"I thought of wishes and dreams when I saw these Mementos keys, so I went with that theme for the sentiment of my card. I cut two JustWrite tickets and half and put them back together on the middle of the card, with the key separating them, to write out my sentiment. I tied a tiny piece of ribbon onto the key to add a little bit of flair."
