Hi there. Over the next three days I'll be sharing an album I made to document my trip to Ireland, Wales, England and France with the school a couple years ago. Over April vacation every year, we take a group of students on a tour. Sometimes I get picked to chaperone. This year, I'll be heading to Italy, Greece, and Turkey with the kids. I can't wait.
Anyway, for this project, I used a 6x8 Simple Stories album with a couple different styles of page protector.
The album is divided into three sections, labeled Ireland, UK, and France. I had to renew my passprt recently, and since this was the last trip I took with my old passport, I stuck it in the album.
There are paper pages inserted in a couple spots to hold extra journaling.
Each section of the album has its own color scheme. I used a lot of orange and green in the Ireland section.
The album is fairly simple, because I had so many pictures to include. I used a lot of labels, stamping, washi tape, and printable elements, and did a lot of writing directly on photos.
Dublin might be one of my favorite places in the whole world. I'm dying to go back.
Some of the cards I used are from Studio Calico Project Life kits, some are from the Midnight Edition Project Life core kit, some are MAMBI Pocket Pages journaling cards, and some I made myself.
There are bits of memorabilia tucked in here and there. And I used wood veneer, clips, and page tabs from my stash.
And that's the end of the Ireland section. Tomorrow I'll show you the UK section. Thanks for looking!
