When I make a mini album, I usually design the cover first. Here's what I did:
I selected the Simple Stories brick paper to cover the cupboard I used to house the album, seeing as how the brick made me think city.
And here is the inside:
I decorated the inside cover because the gold "I" showed up. Plus, I love that suitcase.
My husband took a TON of photos on his first trip. Here are a few pages I made of his photos:
Right about here I decided to make this a co-project with my husband. I started the journaling, then decided he would help. I picture sitting next to him while he watched the Mariners asking him questions about the photos and penning it into the blank spots. It will be fun getting all the details from his trip recorded.
This was where I switched to his most recent trip in the mini album.
Thank you for checking out my mini album of my husband's enviable business travels! I hope this gives you ideas for scrapbooking someone else's journeys, and I hope you were inspired by Gossamer Blue's April kit to check it out.
Hi! It's Valerie here with you today. I got to play with the fabulous April kit from Gossamer Blue to create a cute little mini album to share with all of you.
This is my first Gossamer Blue kit, and I totally loved it. The embellishments were my favorite and so perfect for creating this 4 x 5 inch album about my current pregnancy.
For my birthday this year I gifted myself an Instax Share printer. Previously, I was using an Instax mini camera. Although it was super cute and fun, I decided I'd rather take photos with my phone and then pick or choose what I'd like in Instax form. I can turn ANY photo into an Instax photo! This is so great for me because these photos are perfectly imperfect so it requires minimal to no photo editing on my part.
I love adding envelopes into my mini albums. I usually use them to hold letters or extra photos. I used my Silhouette Cameo and a cut file from their store.
Everything coordinates beautifully which is an advantage to using a kit when creating a mini album. Everything is right there on your workspace for you. The only thing extra I grabbed from my personal stash was a set of mini alpha stamps.
Less than two months left until we get to meet this baby girl! I chose to use binder rings so I can continue to add to it. What a fun little keepsake that I hope she'll love to flip through in the future.
As you know, this week, one of you will have a chance to take home the new Gossamer Blue kit.
