50th Anniversary: Mariemont Inn, Mariemont, OH
On our way home we stopped at a Boutique Hotel in Mariemont, OH – the Mariemont Inn. It is a beautiful hotel with amazing rooms. When we went into the room at first we couldn’t find the TV – but we found the remote and it had a button to roll up a painting in the frame to reveal the TV – it was very cool.
I chose some vintage paper for this spread to highlight the age of the hotel. I found the logo online and used Cricut Design Space to create the SVG file which I then cut out on my Cricut machine. It was a very delicate process that required the intricate Cricut Accessory Tools to push all of the little pieces out – but I love the way that it turned out. I added pictures of my parents in front of, and inside the hotel on this page as well.
For the right hand page I placed a collection of the ephemera from the hotel:
- Piece of paper from the notepad in our room – which my mother later wrote on to keep a journal of this location.
- The brochure from the hotel – which is attached to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it can be opened and viewed.
- The room key envelope, which is also attached to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it can be open.
This is what the key card looks like when it is open. I think that it is one of the coolest key envelopes and key cards that I have ever seen in a hotel. The key card is the picture and it slips out of the frame so that you can use it.

Second Album: I used a very similar format for my person album. I used the same background paper and the same Mariemont Inn Cutout. On the left hand page I used a different set of photos, and on the right hand page the layout is a little different as I did not need to add the journalling space. I was able to put in a picture of the historic plaque that is on the site.
I also wanted to show you the key card from this spread, which is different than the one that I put into my parents’ album. Apparently there are several different key cards at this hotel, each with different local historical figures.
