Field Notes- I <3 NY mini album

Hey everyone!  Today I am sharing a little mini album that I made with the December “Wonderland” kit.  I was really inspired by the black and white elements in the kit.  I had been meaning to do a little mini of our trip to NYC last December, and although I scrapped a few of the photo from my trips, I wanted to put more of them together in a little book.

I was trying to mimic a kind of traveler’s notebook, and though this Bella Blvd acetate sheet would make a great cover for the album.

For my inside pages, which I wanted to be white, I was thinking of using just plain printer paper, but it was too thin to stand up the embellishing I wanted to do.  And white cardstock was too thick. While looking for some other papers, I had an “Ah-ha!” moment when I stumbled across a pack of plain white card envelopes.  So my album pages are made from envelopes.  I stitched down the envelope flaps (alternating the direction of the envelopes) and added the acetate cover on the front.  On the small envelope flaps, I glued some of the 3×4 and 4×6 cards that are exclusive to this kit and backed them with paper.

For my pages, I kept it real simple.  I added a few black splatters and some snips of patterned papers with phrases from the Pink Paislee Moonshine collection.  I punched some circles from the Bella Blvd paper and used them to write the location.  Finally, I added some black and white tabs to the edge of each page and my journaling as well.
