This album includes pictures of our family’s first trip to Stinson (and Muir) Beach. It was a bit chilly that April day, only peaking at about 65 degrees, but we still managed to have a good time getting acquainted with the sand, putting our feet in the water, and just enjoying what the beach had to offer in April. I wanted to make a keepsake that my children would enjoy flipping through to recollect their introduction to sand and waves. We can’t wait to go back when it warms up a bit in the Summertime.
I used Becky Higgins Project Life Blush Collection to establish a base for this album and Amy Tangerine’s Yes, Please Collection to embellish the pages. Lori Whitlock’s 3D Layered Mini Album Tabs (from Silhouette Online Store) was used as the chipboard foundation pages which were cut from chipboard using my Silhouette Portrait. They were then embossed using a wood grain Cuttlebug embossing folder. The color of the chipboard pages were laid down using various Ranger Dylusions sprays with acrylic paint, etc. Lori Whitlock’s 3 Frames (from Silhouette Online Store) were used to frame some of the photos and were used as insert pages. My Silhouette Portrait was used to Print-and-Cut all of the digital elements used from the two kits. 3D dot adhesive was used to add dimension to some of the digital elements. I used a Bind-it-All machine to bind the pages together.
It’s been my experience when using Project Life kits that it’s better to pair it with another digital kit for the embellishment process. I thought these two kits went very well together, both are very colorful and visually appealing. All in all, this has been my favorite mini album to put together! The colors and graphic prints of the Blush and the Yes, Please embellishments were fun to pair together. I found it all came together for me effortlessly and the kits kept me motivated to see the final project to fruition.
Here’s a peek into the album—I wish you could hold the album and flip the pages, too!
