Hi there! This is Linda and I’m so excited to be here today to share with you my process for putting together a project using the Go Quarterly Scrapbook Kit. Most of the scrapbook kits don’t have a specific story prompt (like a story kit), which gives you more flexibility, but sometimes makes it difficult to come up with story ideas. I love this kit because it has a very loose theme, Go, which is great for stories of travel, outdoor activities, and just moving around! But, it’s also very loosely themed so you can use this kit to tell most stories. In an earlier post, I planned out ten projects using this kit. If you missed that post you can find it here.
Today I decided to use this kit to tell the story of my recent quick work trip to Brooklyn. I only went for one night (I live in upstate NY so it’s not that far), but I made the most of my trip with some good eats and walks around my favorite Brooklyn neighborhood (Dumbo).
This year I am keeping a 6x8 mini stories album for stories about me and my life. I don’t have any set number of pages I add per month or week (unlike my project life album), but I just add to it as I have additional stories to tell. I decided that it would be the perfect place to keep this story. Because I was working in a 6x8 album, I decided to work with some of the 6x8 papers from the kit as my base.
This project was the first one I sketched out in my initial planning session, I’ve circled my sketch in the photo below.
The first step was to select, edit and print my photos. I knew that I wanted the photo of me in front of the Brooklyn Bridge to be a full page (I thought of that when I initially planned the project) and then I selected two additional photos to print smaller to include inside the chipboard circles.
After I printed my photos, I gathered my supplies. The products from the kit for this spread I had already set aside in a ziplock bag so those were easy to grab. I also selected a solid color cardstock and a scrap of transparency from my stash.
Then I got to putting together my project! In the video, I walk through my process for assembling this page.
And then here is a look at the completed project in my mini album:
I’m thrilled to have this story told and living in my stories album. I hope you enjoyed my process and that this helped give you the nudge to pull out your Go Scrapbook Kit and get crafting!
