I have been scrapbooking regularly since 2007 and since then I have had our honeymoon, that we took in 2004, on my list of things I wanted to go back and scrapbook. I just figured that when I came across the collection that was perfect for those pictures I would do it. That is what happened when I saw the new On My Desk collection available at Gossamer blue. As soon as I opened up the box and saw all the gold accented elements and transparency cards I knew it would be perfect.
There are so many things that I love about this collection, but I have to say that one of my favorites is the gold vellum. So gorgeous that I had to devote an entire 6×8 page just to it!
Back in 2004 we didn’t have the best camera or the best photography skills but I love even the pictures that are less than perfect. Paired up next to these gorgeous papers and elements it’s easy to overlook the imperfections in the pictures.
One thing I really wanted to do in this album is leave a lot of transparent areas. I choose the Simple Stories 6×8 page protectors with the 2×2 pockets so I would be able to add lots of the little elements in the pockets and have the transparent feel that I wanted.
Another one of my favorites from this collection are the 3×4 transparencies. I loved using them as is, or trimming them to use in the 2×2 pockets.
The label stickers are absolutely awesome for adding dates to your projects. These are going to be showing up on my project life spreads a lot.
