mini album inspiration: vacation & toddler themes

This email is from Robyn in Indiana:

I love these mini albums! I created a vacation album using the Kiwi Mini Album and a few cards from my Cobalt Edition as well as some other pieces. I seriously put the album together in about 3 hours and added journaling later.

I also have the first section of my son’s “toddler years” book. I am doing this for both my kids. Every 6 months after their first birthday I put together a few pages to represent who they are and what they are doing at that time in their life. He’s not two yet so I only have the 18 month section. I used the Rain Mini Album and the Childhood Mini Kit: Bridgeport Edition. I trimmed some pictures and adhered them to cardstock to fit more in.

    These look great! Thanks for showing that memories don’t care whether their corners are rounded or not. (I’m usually square too.)

    I love the todler album! I love all the photos it shows, with the photo collages being used! I need to get trip photos in albums too, but I’m not sure that a mini album will be even close to big enough for the numbe of photos I take while travelling!

    Love the album! How did you get 2 & 3 photos to fit in the 4×6 slot? It looks like there is a white border–is that how the photo is printed or did you actually print 2 together? Very creative.

      I just trimmed the pictures and stuck them to white cardstock leaving a bit of a gap between pictures because I already had them printed but you could for sure print them together using Photoshop or Picasa. Thanks!
