More mini albums!

Managed to have a play today with some of the mini books that have been on the UKS homepage this week. Ordered the brill beer mat book from Indigo Mill and soooo can't wait to receive that and have also made a start on a mini album for my boyfriend using the instructions from Crafty Templates, pics when I have finished a bit more!

My fave however was def the album with the pen holder from Craft Island and I knew it would be perfect for my holiday album this year.
Papers are Bo Bunny and I have also used some thickers, foam papermania letters, my dymo and some paper scraps for the flower.

My first page is a pocket with a little journalling book inside. For each day that I am away I have created one of these so I can jot down what we do each day. They are just a bit of card and some lined paper held together with a brad in the corner and the dates on the front!

Again the papers are Bo Bunny stuck on some white cardstock. I have just stitched the pocket closed with some red thread.

In this pic you can see the pen! I think it is soooo cool. Will def be doing this again. Although will have to scrounge for more hair bobbles!
My next 2 pages are just some card with some more of the Bo Bunny papers. I love the look of rounded corners so had to do that!
I Plan on just sticking photos and maybe more journalling on these pages. The book is not totally finished yet and I haven't decided if I should have just the 2 or more pages in between each day!

Also because of the book rings I will prob put postcards and leaflets directly into the album.

Then over the page it's on to the next day. Same kind of pocket and journalling book.

I will probably leave any kind of embellishments until I have been away and have my photos and know exactly what I want to do with the spare pages!

Think I am going to have to buy more of the papers tho, apart from being lush I am running very low. Only brought 3 sheets, not knowing what I was going to do with them!
Anyways thanks so much for looking. Have a good night! xx
