Summer Folio Mini Travel Album

Hello friends! I was asked to be a guest designer for the Scrapbookingstore which is a very affordable scrapbooking kit club.

When I saw the July Kit, I immediately knew that I wanted to create a summer mini album folio that includes a pocket, waterfall, tags and journaling cards.

My daughter went to Texas two weeks ago for her summer vacation so I created this little book for her to add 15 photos and some little notes from her trip.

The kit includes some cute patterned papers from Echo Park's Summer Fun Collection and also the sticker sheet from the same collection as well as some chipboard embellishments and journal cards from American Crafts.

I made the front cover, back cover and spine from some medium weight chipboard and covered it with patterned papers from the kit. 

I added a pocket on the inside cover and created some journaling cards and tags and added a ton of stickers and embellishments from the kit. In fact I actually used the entire sticker sheet to embellish the mini book. On the inside cover on the right hand side, I added a waterfall created with cardstock, patterned papers from the kit, and stickers. There is room to place fifteen photos.

I decorated the outside covers with plenty of stickers as well.  The title "summer" was created with stickers from the kit and I drew around the edges of the title with a fine black felt marker and a ruler to make it stand out more.  

I added some alphabet stickers on the spine of the book as well and also added some black and white baker's twine and some black enamel dots from my stash to add some texture and dimension.

Recently I purchased a We R Memory Keepers Tag Maker and put it to use by altering the journal cards from the kit to create tags and then I punched a hole and tied some baker's twine. I added a lot of stickers to these too.

The paper waterfall was created with cardstock as a base and the patterned papers from the kit. Again I added some stickers to the bottom of each photo mat.

I love making mini books and I was happy to give it as a gift to my daughter so that she can document her memories this summer.

I still had plenty of leftovers from the kit to create some cards.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you check out the Scrapbookingstore. They have a new kit each month starting at $14.99 which is really affordable for a scrapbook kit club. One of the lowest priced kits in the industry.
