Travel Mini Album

Before we went away for our trip to the UK, I made a mini album for the friend who was going to travel with us. This was her first trip to the UK so I wanted to help her to remember it with a special journal/album.
I have been very inspired by Anne at as she makes the most amazing mini-albums, specialising in using Graphic 45 papers.
Having watched many of her videos - which are fantastic as she goes through every step involved in making the albums, I decided to have a go at creating one for myself.
I took several photos of the finished album for my friend, and decided to make these into a video instead of putting every picture on the blog.
The papers I used were mainly from Kaisercraft and I used several Tim Holtz stamps and dies as well as using the Cricut to cut several little mini-books and folders to put into the album.

The video is short but it shows all the pages and inserts I made for the album. Each page has two different sides as well as an envelope between to insert a bigger mat for photos and journalling.

What a wonderful keepsake for your friend, Janet. I bet she is thrilled with it! I too am a devotee of Anne's Youtube tutorials. She is so creative and I love all the Graphic 45 papers.
