Adventure Awaits Mini Album | Jo Boland

Hey there! Jo here with a mini album ‘Adventure Awaits’ made using the 49 and Market collection ‘Vintage Artistry – Hike More’. This is a new scrapbook company to Hey Little Magpie and my first time using it. I have to say I’m impressed and keen to get some of the other collections. The collection has indeed got a vintage vibe, the papers are really good quality and thick. The colours in this particular collection feature a lot of greens, browns and a little blue, which figures as it is about the outdoors.

Here’s a look at what I picked from the collection:

I ordered the 6×8″ Collection Pack which comes with laser cut elements as well as papers, the Mix & Match Die-cut Pack, the 6×12″ Washi Tape Pack and one 12×12 paper Journal Cards.

Mini-Album Construction

I kept it simple by using the 6×8″ papers from the collection pack as they were, with the exception of three which I turned into pockets to hold ephemera from the trip. To make the front and back covers thicker and stronger I adhered two papers together. I trimmed the manufacturers strip from the 12×12″ paper and used that inside the front and back covers. The front cover was decorated with a mix of washi tape, die-cuts and laser cuts. I made collages in an app on my phone called Pic Frame and printed them out on my Canon Selphy. From the photos I decided which order the papers would go and stuck the photos in place. I made a pocket behind the first photo of each day to hold a Days of the Week journaling card from Elle’s Studio. Then I went through the album adding in bits and pieces from the collection. I also used Elle’s Studio alphabet stickers for the word LET on the second page and enamel dots from the Simple Stories ‘Safe Travels’ collection.
