New American Crafts Design Team Traveler's Notebook Mini Album

Hello friends! I am excited to share a standard TN (Traveler's Notebook) sized mini album using the pastel colors from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful collection. This is a Coffee Adventure mini album. This album has 31 pages so grab a cuppa and relax while you browse:) 

* I used a white card stock piece between each of the patterns with the Vicki Boutin Mixed Media Art Paper. If you leave the pages unbound until the end, it makes it easier to write, stamp and decorate all the pages.

 The Cover: I hand-painted the cover with the Vicki Boutin, and Jane Davenport Watercolor sets.

Inside Cover: Full size photo on the left side with a strip of washi and a sticker.Dear Lizzy vellum on the right. Cut apart sheet was used to create a “Reason Why” page with the journaling spot.

 Page 2-3: Vicki Boutin stamps in light pink then a sticker over it for the title.

Page 4-5: Punched hearts stitched with embroidery thread, and stamped label with Vicki Boutin pigment ink. 2x2 cut apart on the right side with a 2x2 photo.

 Page 6-7: American Crafts Tab punch was used to create the border on the right with papers from the 6x6 paper pad. The left side has a 3x4 photo with the rainbow washi to create a flip up for another 3x4 photo.

 Page 8-9: Tag die cuts were used to create a tab to flip up the top card to see more photo and a business card from the Hawaii Coffee Cafe underneath. The right side rain top paper was used to resemble drips from a coffee maker :)

 Page 10-11: Ireland coffee, and water color with the Jane Davenport set to create the circles on the right. The sticker book stickers were perfect to create the translucent title over the watercolor circles. They resemble the pink marshmallows on the left hand photo.

 Page 12-13: Strips of teal and aqua patterns from the 6x6 and 12x12 placed under the photo on the left. The right side has a 2x2 cut apart with some handwritten journaling on a flip up page.

 Page 14-15: Sprinkle background pattern forms the center of the mini album. A center flip holds two more 2x3 photos.

  Page 16-17: Vicki Boutin pigment ink was blended with the VB sponge onto VB Art Paper and then the glitter stickers were adhered over it to create the title.

 Page18-19: Circles were stitched first so the stitching doesn’t show through the other side, and then adhered with Ac tape runner. Circle stickers from the Dear Lizzy Washi Booklet were combined with the punched circles. A cup sticker shows through the circle cut window. Another reason not to bind the book first, is you can die cut windows out of the pages first once you know what will go on that page.

 Page 20-21: Photo over the full page floral pattern, and a washi strip to add the black and white pattern. Sticker from the Dear Lizzy Stay Colorful Card Stick Sticker pack. Jane Davenport watercolors used the hand paint the sea glass look on the right side.

Page 22-23: Flip page with small photo and crochet thread, and a 2x2 cut part with hand-written journaling.

 Page 26-27: Unicorn-cut apart  added with washi to flip up and reveal a darker photo underneath. Stamped label using the VB pink pigment ink over the unicorn pattern on the left.

Page 28-29: Stitched die cuts before adhering with tape runner down the left hand side. Die cut title over the stamped label and hand written journaling. Right side has the same pink pattern from the 12x12 sheet and a stripe pattern to bring your eye to the photos.

Page BackCover: Left side has a circle punched from the 12x12 cut part sheet.Full page photo  on the right with a strip of marble washi from the booklet with a heart sticker and a typed strip that says, “…more coffee”.

There are a lot of pages in this mini album, so a stitched binding with waxed linen thread was the solution for a strong hold. There is a flip through video to show you all the flip pages and extra features not captured with photos below:
