Hello everyone!! Jackie G here to share a super fun summer project with you!! I’m super excited about this mini album…well, more like “not-so” mini album!! Measuring in at 9” x 10” with a 3” spine…it’s a big one!!
I used the “Hello Summer” collection to make this beauty!! Since it was so big I ended up using two of the collection kits, 6x8 paper pad, bits and pieces, and the chipboard stickers.
So lets get started!! I kept the front cover pretty simple. Using just two of the chipboard elements to create my title “hello summer”. I decided to keep it simple because this album will be traveling with us throughout the summer and I didn’t want anything to get snagged or torn off during transport.
When you open the album I’ve got a HUGE accordian pocket on the left hand side of the album. Inside I’ve placed a notepad for my children to jot down notes or drawings while we are out and about. There is also a TON of room for extra photos or memorabilia to be stored. On the right hand side I’ve created a fun little pen holder. Each of the pages are pocket pages with top inserts. So again, LOTS of room for photos!!
This page is super fun with a cute little scooter to hold a journaling card.
Can’t go wrong with summer and flamingos!! This guy holds a couple different size photomat and journaling cards. I was very cautious about keeping all the mats an easy size so all I have to do is print photos and stick them on with little or no cutting involved. This spread has two smaller pocket pages with side inserts. The pull out for lots of extra photo or journaling storage.
I love this spread!! “I dream of summers that last forever”!!! LOVE it!! I’m a summer girl so this collection really has my heart!!
These two inserts I made specifically for using a white gel pen on the back of the black cardstock for some journaling!! I know my boys will enjoy helping as this house is in full blown “splash zone” here!!! haha
Here’s another spread with the side pockets. Pool hair, don’t care, and the last of the pages.
And lastly, we’ve got a big notepad on the back cover for lots more journaling, drawings or whatever else we need!!! I’m so incredibly excited to fill this album up!!
