Hello! Samantha here with you today to share one of my favorite things to create : Mini albums! Today I have an album I created with photos of a trip my husband and I took together. I decided to create an Instax album with paper and embellishments from the Paradise Found Collection.
- Island Life 3D Sticker
- The Beach 3D Sticker
- Hello Sunshine Puffy Stickers
- Paradise Found 12″ Cardstock Stickers
- Discover the World 3D Sticker
- Paradise Found Cruise Paper
- Paradise Found Florida Paper
- Paradise Found Tags Paper
I started with a leather Instax album. It’s like a mini version of a regular scrapbook album with page protector inserts and everything. Instax photos print out at about 2″ x 3 1/4″, so even if you don’t have an Instax camera or Instax Photo Printer, you can still print out photos at this size.
Small photo albums this size are perfect for using lots of stickers as embellishments. Since we spent most of our time relaxing in the same place, there wasn’t a lot of journaling needed. Stickers are the perfect way to brighten up the album and add extra color to the story.
When I do need to add journaling to tiny pages, I like to take journaling tags from Paradise Found, and just trim them down. You can see in the photo above how I took a 4×6 journaling tag, cut it down to 2 x 3 1/4″, and journaled on a partial journaling tag instead.
Flat cardstock stickers (like the hello sunshine sticker above) can be added directly to a photo and slipped inside the page protector. 3D stickers (like the coastal life sticker above) are added to the outside of the page protector instead.
I also layered up some Paradise found papers and stickers to created interesting pages and custom journaling tags for my album.
Don’t forget to customize the inside and outside of your covers with paper and stickers, too! Have you ever made an Instax album?
