Travel Mini Album

Well, I think I can officially say that we have converted Amanda into a full blown scrapbooker!! This is her second mini album now and she even created it while on vacation! I’d say she’s hooked and I’m loving that she is because her creations are darling! Read below to see her adorable travel mini album that she created while in Palm Springs for Christmas!!

Hi Friends, Happy Tuesday!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Over the holiday my family and I spent a week in Palm Springs, California. We ditched the dreamy white snowy scene and opted in for some sun and relaxation. As much as I loved hanging out at the pool during the day, at night I enjoyed pulling out a few papers + embellishments to create a day by day mini album of our vacation.

I love using the Walgreens photo app to print my photos. It’s super convenient and made it super easy for printing on vacation. You can also print square photos right from your Instagram account too. The easy phone-to-store printing made it easy for me to print and have them ready for me to pick up within minutes of ordering.

Because I was limited to a few print sizes, I made my album 5×7. This allowed me to use both square 4×4 photos and 5×7 enlargements.

I wanted to include all the images from our trip so at the end of the album I used a glassine bag to add any extra printed pictures. I just love that tiny little metal clip!!!

    this is beautiful, thanks so much for inspiring me. I do mini albums all of the lime but was not sure how I wanted to do one about a recent weekend away.

    I am now going to do a 4×6 of this.
