Sweet Summer | Holiday Mini Album with Caroli

Some years ago I had the luck of spending a few weeks with my family in Brazil, in a little town called Buzios. This was our first vacations abroad as a family of three so we really enjoyed our time away. I decided recently that it was time I created a mini album to capture the special moments of our journey before the memories were lost altogether.

I printed some journaling pages on vellum, and then I embellished them a bit using Shape Sprinkles and Icon Stickers. I repeated this in few more pages on the album.

I had this large photo of my sweet three year old that I really wanted to include in the album, but since the pages were 10x10 it didn't fit. Therefor, I decided to cut the pic in two pieces and using washi tape I joined it back together in a way that would create a flap that could be folded back in on itself.

I included some of the diecuts from the Odds & Ends pack to use as tags in different parts of the album which I thought looked so cute.

I used Abigail alpha and also Teensy Typo Alpha in Lily White to highlight the place name of where each photo was taken. I like to mix different kind of alphas to make my composition more interesting.

The fruit icons are definitively my fave in this collection as they are so fresh and sweet with their little faces! I used them a lot throughout the pages.

I combined different embellishments to use as decoration including Odds & Ends, Chit Chat, Shape Sprinkles and Icon Stickers. I also used foam dots for adhering some of my embellishments as this way the design has more dimension.

I hope you liked this mini and get inspired to start using the Sweet Summer collection for your Summer holiday photos. If you have any questions please leave a comment! Have a fabulous day!
