I made a travel mini album for my cousin Donna. One of her kids lives in England with his family and she recently traveled there to visit them and then her and her husband went on a cruise. So this is for her to document her travels. I found a great tutorial for the pages on youtube. Link above. I made four of the pages, then I used some chipboard from the back of a pack of paper for the front and back covers. Except for the cover paper, all of the papers are from Authentique: Celebration. I won the pack and I have been dying to use it. The charms my husband found at Goodwill, how lucky was that. The flowers are taken from cards I received. I did a lot of recycling on the album. The travel chipboard letters are from the Just Enough Stuff etsy store, they are covered in foreign text.



I made a pocket to put a coin envelope in for small souvenirs.

this is a fold out page has 8 panels front and back for pictures





the insert is just a little photo mat
this stamp is from Close to my Heart
