2021: North Carolina Road Trip – Andrew Jackson Hermitage – 1

After spending several days with my sister and her family, we started the long trip back home. We had planned for it to take three days, and we made a couple of historic stops along the way to break up the trip. The first place that we stopped on the way home was the Andrew Jackson Hermitage near Nashville, TN. If you have been following my blog you know that my bucket list includes trying to go to as many Presidential Museums and libraries as possible, and this added one more to my list!

The color theme of this spread is based off of the color from the brochure on the left-hand side. I was able to find some antique looking paper that pulled out those colors. I used a red border on the right-hand side to engage the colors from the pictures on that side of the page and created the torn edge using a jagged edge tearing tool. This border also has some washi tape along the edge to create more interest.

We were not allowed to take pictures inside of the home itself, and so I purchased postcards in the onsite gift shop that you can see on the right-hand page. These had a white border, and so I created white borders for the other items on the page, to help tie them together. I used the Creative Memories Circle cutter to cut the border for the patch on the page. The drawing in the top right -hand corner is actually from the package that the patch came in.

I attached the brochure on the left-hand side to the outside of the plastic page protector so that the reader could open it to view.

Recently, for most of my scrapbook creations I have also created videos that show me putting them together and talking about the experiences as well as the techniques that I am using. So please enjoy watching this spread being created and assembled:
