Left // The title took some careful alpha arranging, but I really love how it turned out. I layered the alphas over some pretty vellum leaves.
Right // The pamphlet I got from the palace was too tall for my album and it would have been awkward to cut it down, so I ended up simply folding it half and inserting it into a gold/white striped paper bag I had. I included this paper bag in my album using some attacher tabs, created with the SC die.
Right // The 4x6 journaling card on the right seemed too plain, so I laid a gold floral transparency (from this set) right on top of the card. It adds some fun layering and I like how it matches my gold/white paper bag on the left.
I had shared this spread before when I posted my Studio Calico Odyssey projects, but I'm including it here again so you can see how it is a part of my mini album! This spread was made with the Odyssey Project Life kit.
Right // I really love the bright pop of yellow from the Loft pamphlet I cut up and made into a 3x4 card.
Left // We had to wake up early in the morning on our last day to catch our flight home and didn't do much aside from hang out at the airport, so I simply used one journaling card to briefly jot that down. The 'keep being awesome' card is from the Odyssey Project Life Kit and I thought it was the perfect way to end my mini-album.
Right // I love transit maps and kept one on Tokyo's various subway systems. The colors are really great so I added attacher tabs and let it be the last page in my book!
Since I used a Becky Higgins album with a thinner spine (as compared to the Studio Calico handbooks), my completed mini was filled to the brim but thankfully not overflowing. I used 21 page protectors and 6 inserts. It feels so good to have another mini album completed and check off my to-do list.
That's it, Tokyo. Til next time!
