2022: Chickasaw White House

While at the Chickasaw National Capitol we learned that the Chickasaw White House was not very far away and so we decided to add this beautiful historic location to our day trip, and we were glad that we did. To find out more about this historic location please visit the link above.

I chose a pink theme for this spread, and while pink is not traditionally considered a masculine color, it works well with this spread to highlight the beautiful Crepe Myrtle trees that are in the yard and which are over 100 years old. I selected pink flower background pages to help highlight this as well.

I used Cricut Design Space to design the mats and graphics on this spread, and then used my Cricut machine to draw the title and graphic designs and then cut out the mats. The graphic underneath the title is meant to mimic the pattern in the porch trim that you can see in the pictures.

The left-hand page includes the brochure from the site which is attached to the outside of the plastic page protector so that it can be opened to be viewed. The right-hand page includes a brochure from the site, and two business cards – one that is the current museum director’s, and the other which is of the original owner of the home, Chickasaw Governor Douglas Henry Johnston. I thought it was really cool that they had this card and so I wanted to make sure that it made it onto this page.

My new practice is also to video the creative process for each of my spreads which you can enjoy below on my YouTube channel:
