Vacation Mini

If you follow me on Instagram (@adriennealvis) you know that I promised a mini album post today.  A very chunky mini album, btw.  I whipped this one out in two days, which I believe is a new record for me, lol!  I was really inspired by the PDF's about the mini albums in my Pop Off The Page class.

Well, here it is...Enjoy!

I took a lot of photos using my Instax camera on our trip to Florida back in August.  I couldn't wait to get them into an album!

I used a blurred Instax photo for some of my journaling using a Slick Writer (left page).  I also used this month's Main kit +Add-ons from Studio Calico.  And lots of washi from Freckled Fawn!

I hid my journaling on the right page under the envelope flap.  It was my niece's first vacation!  How cute is she?!?!

The "We Were Here" stamp that I used throughout the mini came from www.lifelovepaper.com...I love that stamp!!!

The paper bag on the right was some leftover packaging from the "We Were Here" stamp.  I thought it was perfect for the page about building sandcastles!  Plus, I love to use product packaging whenever I get a chance :)

The "Hello" stamp on the left is also from www.lifelovepaper.com.  I used my Cameo to cut out the "love" circle on the right.  Then I made a little sequin-filled window out of it using some vellum and my sewing machine.

I filled this tiny glassine envelope with some Prima flowers and then used the back for another photo (see below).

I think my favorite thing about this mini is the little "hello" tag I placed in a glassine bag on the right page!

I used my vintage Royal 440 for the journaling on the left...love that thing!

The End!

Super chunky!

If you made it to the end of this post then you're a trooper!  I hope your Monday is rockin'!  TFL!
