A Personal Reflection Mini Album

Hello again! It’s Andrea and I’m back to show off the special On Cherry Street kit release called Reflections. I’ve missed you sweetsters and I’m happy to be back for this sweet kit.

I decided to embark on the Whole30 food journey as a way to retrain my body to crave real food instead of the junk that has held me captive for years.
And wouldn’t you know it, but the Reflections kit was the perfect way to document this adventure in my ongoing album about ME.

This 6×8 page is my opening and it was so much fun using so many of the cards and embellishments from the kit. The question and answer card is my favorite piece and was perfect for a short interview with myself. The questions are so much deeper than the typical currently or favorite lists we all know and love, so I appreciated that my answers truly reflected my fears and goals.


As a fun treat, I filmed a video during the process of completing this opening page. Check it out here!

I have been using Instagram to post foods I discover, positive pieces of inspiration as well as struggles. This means I have photos to scrap and have been able to document my progress. I mentioned above that I’m using a 6×8 album which will include pocket style pages as well as full page layouts.

This layout uses the BE open TO WHATEVER comes next card which I tore the top off of so it fit nicely with my other elements. I was also able to balance out the color with the large black button that comes with the Reflections kit.IMG_5557


Being honest about the struggles of a life changing journey such as this helps me understand how I handle those challenges. Here I used a leftover piece of polka dot card from the kit. In a previous layout, I cut a heart from it using my silhouette, and saved the negative space portion because I just knew I could use it somewhere.IMG_5558

I do hope you enjoyed seeing how I used this fun and reflective kit. There are so many possibilities!

And next week I will continue to share more of my album, which includes many more pieces from this sweet kit. Please join me on my blog on Wednesday the 3rd!

As always, it’s been a pleasure to share this sweet kit with all of you!

Until next time, happy scrapping!
