The cover is the only place that I added any hint of mixed media.
When I created the album, I wanted to have a nod to a sense of travel without it feeling like a travel album, since the couple did not actually leave home.
I pulled in some goodies from Echo Park's "Getaway" collection and used embellishments from many other companies to round out the look so that the whole project wasn't too theme-y.
I also aimed to mix up the style of the pages, incorporating some small album sleeves, some interactive pages and some chipboard pages.
Some of the pages look more like traditional layouts, just on a smaller scale.
And other have a fun twist.
Like the little envelope pocket with tabbed pull out photos.
I also tucked in a couple of extra little things here and there like this tag.
This envelope was fun to make, I like the way it is simply embellished, too.
It opens for a fun little surprise.
A mini accordion fold album!
The back of the envelope gave me a spot for another mini layout.
I also incorporated some waterfall sleeves, to layer photos.
A few pocket page cards here and there, helped to fill in a few spots.
Flaps are fun, easy and a great way to add an extra photo or two.
Simple embellishing keeps things from feeling too heavy.
I added a little spot for a note or two, as well.
Which gave me space for more pictures.
I trimmed down a 12 x 12 die cut page and made a just for fun page for the album.
I really love this page, the bow adds a soft touch.
And when you open it up, there is room for a lot more photos.
How fun is that!
At first I though there were only 15 photos, in the end I was sent 25. Which is why I had to get creative with adding them to this mini album.
I love this clear page!
I mirrored it on the back to hide adhesive and the back of elements.
Finally, I have one last flap page.
With one last layout.
The album turned out super cute, I love the mix of pages and designs. I also was able to de-stash a lot of goodies!
I have a flip through video if you'd like to watch here, or on my You-Tube channel.
