Hi Everyone! I hope that you have an an amazing week! The sun is shining here and things have been busy with the school holidays. I recently started volunteering at our local community cinema and I am having so much fun! I have also been busy creating lots of new goodies using the Holiday Catalogue ahead of the INKreator's Holiday Catalogue Christmas Extravaganza which is in a couple of weeks!
I know that a lot of you who read my blog are Project Lifers. Today I wanted to show you an album I made documenting our moving experience! Three moves in four months, plus a garden extension and a house warming party certainly made for a detailed album!
The beauty of the plain kraft colour is that you can decorate your album anyway that you like. For this album I used the Happy Times Collection (Project Life Cards, Accessory Packs and the Stamp Set). On the cover I used one of the 4x6 cards that I cut into a flag, I then embellished it using goodies from the embellishment pack include sticks, washi and the enamel dots. For the title I used Layered Letters (and used it throughout the album for titles) and the letter stickers for the spine.
I often struggle with ways to use the 2x2 cards, but I created a grid pattern using the 2x2 cards for the album's front page! I absolutely adore the 'home sweet home' wood veneer embellishment, so perfect for our moving album.
For the internal pages I loved using all of the different 3x4 and 4x6 cards - sometimes I layered them, cut them up to create embellishments or used them as journalling spots. The cards with the prompts are great too, as are the stickers that come with the embellishment pack to add additional comments. Don't forget to include ephemera in your spreads - above you can see I included the key from our old house.
When you move house you also get a lot of awesome housewarming cards - that's where the Project Life pockets are awesome - it means that you can keep all of your cards in your album!
There you have it, a snapshot of our moving mini album. Mini albums are so much fun and perfect to capture specific moments outside of your everyday documenting - whether it be moving house, a holiday or the birth of a new family member.
Don't forget that you can order all of your Project Life goodies directly from my online store and have the items delivered to your door. Until Sunday 4 October, if you use the hostess code US2HH2J6 and spend over $75.00, I will send you a little gift to say thank you! Visit my store to order all your goodies.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine! L xx
