On My Desk | Honeymoon Album


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.

    I love this so much! When my husband and I went on our honeymoon, I forgot to bring my camera battery charger and I couldn’t find a charger for my camera anywhere…so we bought those old disposable film cameras…and that’s what we have of our honeymoon, haha.

    We don’t even have the phone photos I took because over the years and many evil cell phone store techies later, I’ve somehow lost access to them all.

    I love how this kit accented all your photos, especially all the gold accents! 🙂

      Thank you Christina! Yeah, I really cringed when I pulled out those pictures again to scrap. We REALLY didn’t know what we were doing back when it came to taking photos.

    I love taking a sneak peek into other people’s scrapbooks! It shows what that person deems important, beautiful, unforgettable.
    I don’t keep a scrapbook of my own but I’ve had my diary for more than 10 years and every now and then random articles, loved photographs and random findings would proudly stand on its pages!
    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    This is incredible. You make me want to go take everything out of my honeymoon album and redo it! Or at least start and entire new one. Wow. Beautiful.
