Hey everyone! I finally got around to finishing a new travel mini-book and I'm sharing the first half of it today :) I decided to use the Studio Calico handbook system because it's the perfect size; it fits a lot of pages and has divided page protectors. I did a lot of pre-planning for this mini-book. Since I like printing my photos all in one go at Costco, I needed to pre-plan my pages a bit and decide which photos I'll be printing and what sizes they need to be. It took more time, but it was worth the effort in the end because there's a higher chance of me finishing a travel mini if I've already planned it out.
This book is about a family beach vacation last December, so I used a lot of Sundrifter, my favorite of SC's new collections. The colors and patterns are perfect for a tropical vacation! I also pulled out some older SC retail collections (from Heyday and Take Note), bits from my stash, and washi tape. I used printables from my Adventure collection as well.
Here we go! I'm in love with the floral oilcloth album - the pattern is gorgeous and the album is great quality. I used a printable circle tag for the slot in the center.
I designed the label for the spine in Photoshop, then printed it out and added a chipboard geotag (from a past SC kit).
The cover page is a Here & There album insert. I love the look of tone on tone with the sequins on the polka dots, and the photo is a random instax picture I took during the trip.
I used some of the Sundrifter album inserts as dividers between each day on the trip.
Thanks for visiting! I'll be back next week with the second half of the mini-book. If you have any specific questions, you can leave it in the comments and I'll try my best to answer them :) Happy Friday and enjoy your Easter weekend!
