CT Introduction: Mary-Ann Maldonado

Hi everyone!

I have been relishing in excitement for over the last week or so, anticipating my first blog post as a new designer here on the blog!  I have been stalking, in a non-creepy way, the Paper Issues team for quite some time, wishing I too could be a PI girl!  

For those of you who want to know a bit more about me....

I have followed my retired Marine around for 21 years, so we have lived in many extraordinary places making life-long friends along the way.  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 holiday decor, 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 any embellishments.  My undiagnosed OCD helps keep it all in order. :o)  I hope to inspire you during my stay here at Paper Issues and look forward to seeing you again real soon.

For my first post here, I thought I would create with all of my new goodies from Crate Paper - Open Book.  I ordered it ALL.  So when I got it, I had a hard time narrowing it down.  So, to be able to use most of it, or at least my faves, I decide to created this homemade mini album of several "car" photos (since that is where we spend a ton of time!) The papers serve as my base pages, cut down to 4x6.   








I am hoping you love this product as much as I do.  You can get your own or other ah-mazing products from the shop.  If you use this code: Mary-Ann, you will get 20% off your next order from the Paper Issues shop!!
