Hello friends! Welcome back to the Clique Kits blog! Today I am sharing a fun adventure mini album using the September main kit. Like I said in my last post I am just over the moon for this kit! I love all the dark blues and greens, and woodgrain paper always has my heart. You can pick up the kit in the shop here you can also take a look at all the September shop update here.
I love putting little mini albums together and this kit is just perfect for all our family outdoor adventures.
To start the album I adhered the ‘Take a Hike’ die cut to the center of a 4×4 acetate sheet so you could see the beautiful map paper through it.
On the opposite side of the die cut I adhered a wood circle from my stash and added another die cut heart.
When the first page is turned I placed one of the 4×6 journal cards cut down to 3.5×3.5 to the left side of the page and paired it with a die cut and a photo of one of my boys on an adventure hike.
I repeated the process on the next page but switched the orientation. I also adhered the journal card this time on vellum to add a little bit more interest and texture.
I love see through pages and wanted to include another one in the book. For this one I used a printed sheet of acetate and layered a few embellishments on top. This way you can still see the photo through the acetate but till you turn the page you can’t see all the details.
To add just a little more detail to the photos, I added a word strip on the edge of all the 3×3 photo stacks.
On the next page I added a little journaling and die cuts along with an epoxy arrow from the kit. I adore the little arrows with the map on them!
I wanted the last photo to be covered so I added a full 4×4 card to this page to make sure that the final photo was not seen till the page was turned.
I ended the mini with a photo of our youngest son. I layered a tag over the photo and added a little burlap bow to mimic the burlap bow at the beginning of the album.
I love how the little mini album turned out. I am planning on giving it to my husband to keep in his office. Such a fun and simple project but so meaningful! This is what memory keeping is all about!
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful day!
