This summer, we went on our very first family vacation. We spent several nights around the Twin Cities in Minnesota and had such a fun time. Sn@p made it so easy to create a mini album of our vacation together and it was fun to pull in other travel products I have been wanting to use.
For the cover, I pulled out many products with "hello" on them and then added "Vacation" using the alphabet stickers and labels. I also wanted a calendar to share the date when we went on vacation so I cut that out from one of the Simple Basics patterned papers. I also tied a little wood veneer car to the cover with twine.
I used one of the chipboard inserts as a cover sheet. I had a map stamp from Cocoa Daisy that I heat embossed and then highlighted where we went with a heart sticker and "love this" sentiment. And it was fun to add the "who, what, when, where" details with the tabs that I cut out from Snappy Thoughts 4 x 6 cards.
For the inside cover, I used another Snappy Thoughts 4 x 6 card to share a few more details about our vacation. And for page one, I started using the divided page protectors.
Here are the next two pages...I'm keeping everything super simple! Some pockets, I just slide in a card or photo with minimal embellishments. I'm really loving the options for journaling!
And a couple more pages...again, mostly the photos, a little patterned paper and a few stickers here and there.
And here are two more pages I didn't share on the Simple Stories blog... I journaled a lot about those crazy fighting, playing bears. It was literally one of the coolest things I have ever seen. They kept at it forever.
My album is still a work in progress so I hope to share more with you soon. I was just in awe of how quickly it all came together. The hardest part was choosing and editing my photos.
Thanks for stopping by today! I have plenty more to share with you in the next couple days so please stop back! :)
