Hi guys! Today I am sharing my Introduction pages in my Bermuda Honeymoon album! I chose the pineapple vellum from an older Pink Paislee Citrus Bliss collection on top of the first 9×12 pocket page. The pockets were filled with Studio Calico Documenter kit goodies and embellished with Freckled Fawn!
As I am diving into this album and working with these photos, I am realizing just how chock-a-block full of inspiration Bermuda truly is. Obviously the island is just stunning and natural, so many colors and textures and views! And these photos are just the muse I’ve needed.
Of course you know I had to use some vellum and I have been saving this pineapple vellum for ever!!! I opened Procreate on my iPad and wrote Bermuda in my handwriting, then brought it into Silhouette and cut it out. Love it!
Then for the first pocket page I used one simple flower photo and the rest filler cards. All these cards are from the Studio Calico Documenter kit from February, and then I added a few very tiny embellishments from Freckled Fawn. The black and white washi tape is Crate Paper, and the die cut floral is Pink Paislee Moonstruck.
I am keeping everything very light and airy in this album. I really want the photos to shine, and all the embellishments and journal cards play supporting roles.
Hi guys, today I am beginning an entire new series and I cannot wait to share it with you!!!!! Alan and I went to Bermuda on our honeymoon four years ago, and it is time for me to get those photos scrapped!!!! So grab your tickets and let’s go!
When Alan and I got married in 2012, we decided directly after the wedding to head off to Bermuda for a couple of days. These are our stories from that trip.
I chose the Jasmine Jones 9×12 album from Studio Calico to house this project. The amazing florals speak tropics to me, and the size is perfect for the 150-199 photos I plan to include.
I added a few charms to the side, much like planners add to their books!
My plan is to use several different types of page protectors. The album itself came with a variety of protectors, including this standard 4×6 shown above. This is my introduction page in its planning stages, using some cards from the February Documenter kit Confidant.
Because I have some vertical photos, I am also including these page protectors that have been cut down from 12×12. They measure 8×12, and this adds some visual interest as you turn pages in the album!
I also cut down a few Becky Higgins 12×12 Design A page protectors and sealed the edges on the sides. Mainly I did this because I was worried I would not have enough of the Studio Calico protectors, and also again to have some variety!
I am also looking forward to including some full 9×12 layouts as well, so have included those protectors as well. The photos I plan to use for those layouts are already in place and ready to go!
Thanks so much for joining me on this awesome journey! See you again soon!
