Hey everyone, it’s Juli here with a fun little hybrid mini album I created for our upcoming family vacation. The last few summers, DH and I have taken trips just the two of us (a little slice of heaven) while our daughters spend time with my in-laws in Miami. This year we are taking our first really Summer Vacation as a family (we usually do the whole family thing at Spring Break or in the fall). I’m excited about our upcoming trip…I don’t want to miss anything. If you see my blog post from last month, I’m a real planner when it comes to vacations. This year I decided to make sure it was easy to keep track of our memories, fun inside jokes, and little bits of memorabilia. So…I created this fun little mini album to take along with us. It’s not to stick pictures in after we get back, but rather a place to journal and keep our memories while we are enjoying our time together.
This isn’t going to be a tutorial, but rather just a little show and tell.
For the outside covers (front and back) I used two pieces of a 4 piece chipboard mini album I picked up in the dollar area at Michael’s (probably a year or so ago knowing me). To bind all the pages together I used book clips that I got from Wal-Mart. The inside pages are printed on white card stock using a color laser printer. To decorate the book clips (rings) I just tied pieces of ribbon on in colors that coordinated with the kit. Most important – the kit. I used Meghan Mullen’s new kit – Summer Vacation.
The front – I wrapped the cover around the painted chipboard front.
Inside pages – each section of our trip has a divider card, behind it are journaling pages and a vellum envelope to put memorabilia in.
