We are so excited to have not just ONE guest designer but TWO this month to help launch our kit club! We already shared some projects from Danielle, now lets get to know Brooke! We fell in love with Brooke's page protector pages! Look how she used this method of documenting life with our April Kit - Debutante!
BROOKE: My husband and I were married in June of 2010. We honeymooned in Jamaica immediately following the wedding. When we returned from Jamaica, I promptly got to work sorting through wedding photos and getting all of my favorites out of digital files and into actual albums.
And then, life started rolling along and I somehow forgot to ever scrapbook our time in Jamaica.
When I saw the Debutante kit, I immediately knew that it would be a perfect fit for scrapbooking our honeymoon. The bright colors and bold patterns mesh so beautifully with our beach and foliage photos. Many of the sentiments on the cards, thickers and other embellishments seemed to call out to be used in a honeymoon album.
Four years and two kids later, I can't tell you how much fun it was to look back through these photos. Creating the album also provided some good reminiscing with Brian as I worked to fill in my journaling with specific details from our trip.
This kit was so much fun to work with. I used a bit of almost everything - papers, journaling cards, wood veneers, thickers and badges.
I have always been jealous of albums with sequin-filled see-through pockets. I thought it wasn't possible for me since I don't know how to use my sewing machine, but I decided to try filling a pocket with wood veneers and hand sewing with embroidery floss. Guess what. It worked! And, I love how it turned out.
Although I wish I would have recorded more details of our trip immediately after our arrival home, I think it was worth it to wait to put the album together. More journaling would have been nice, but I think the album does a good job of capturing the spirit of our trip. Working with these photos gave me so much joy and brought back many happy memories that can now be relived each time we flip through this album.
And, I'm not done putting this kit to good use. Little bits have been finding their way into several of my weekly Project Life pages and later this week I will share one weekly layout that is exclusively made with this kit. Thanks so much, Clique Kit girls!
