Announcing Maridette Cachola. She did such an awesome job with this project and I know you will love her final results as mush as we did. Her book was fun, funky and creative and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. Here are a few photos of her book:
I love that she made hers a gate fold double door design….clever!
I just absolutely love all of the finishing touches that Dette put on this book to make it her own…here are a few words from her about her project:
It’s no secret…. I am a ScRaPaHoLiC. Hey at least I can admit it. I am a full time NICU RN. I love shopping, decorating, hanging out with friends and family, going to the beach and of course, scrapbooking. Married to my high school sweetheart and going strong for 12 years. Mother of one beautiful daughter who is 9 going on 16. I started scrapbooking in high school but “serious” scrapbooking since the birth of my daughter. It was all over. I love the whole creative process of scrapbooking from shopping (which is my favorite part) to the finished product. I love how scrapbooking brings so many people together and creates a creative outlet at the same time preserving my familys’ memories. I was the project designer for Scrap for a Cure (www.scrapforacure ) They are a scrapbook kit club that gives back a percentage to a charity of the month. I recently took a dive into the digital world with Rhonna’s digi kits and discovered a whole new addiction… Hybrid Scrapbooking. Thanks to HOF 3!
I would say my style is definitely GiRly. It’s a good thing I have a girl. My inspiration comes from many places (aside from my family of course) from scrapbook celebs, products, mags, galleries and blogs. I think scrapbooking and photography go hand in hand so it’s only natural that my other passion is Photography.
I’ve always wanted to create a mini book of my home and saw HOF 3’s HW kit. We fell in love with our home from the whole architecture to the location where it sits at the end of a court overlooking the rolling hills of Brentwood, Ca. I wanted a book that showcased the beauty of our home and what makes it ours. By creating this book, my family and I can see how much family and friends surrounds us. How much love, cultural and family traditions, celebrations, daily schedules and milestones that happen in our lives. I seem to keep adding pages and pictures to my book. I hope to pass it on to my daughter and for generations to come.
The cover with the double doors that mimicks my front door along with the added bling and hambly’s frame transparency cut out is one of my favorites. I also printed the heart from their Valentines kit onto transparency then added Heidi’s damask sticker gave way to the HOF 3’s birdcage paper onto canvas media. Also, I used HOF 3’s digital frames to create floating frames and printing the framed picture on transparency is another one of my favorites of the book. Just the versatility that HOF 3’s digital kits makes creativity endless. Thanks for giving me the inspiration to finally create my book that I will cherish forever.
