Father’s Day is right around the corner…Looking for one last gift idea? Be sure to check out Juliana Michaels‘ fun Father’s Day mini album.
Mini albums always get such a warm reception from our fans. We suspect today’s gorgeous travel mini album put together by Design Team Member Marjan Pel will be no exception. It’s a great reminder of her amazing trip!
Today I want to share my latest travel mini album about my trip to Valencia in Spain last year.
When I created this mini album I had a certain color scheme in mind. I wanted to use pastel colors and for a bigger contrast I needed black and white patterns too. The papers from the “Garden Party” line were just perfect for this job.
I used the pockets, inserts and die-cuts that come with the line to create the pages. The clothes pins, Thickers and the enamel dots give the project a little bit of dimension.
I took a lot of pictures in Valencia but I only wanted to use instagram photos for this travel mini album. I printed the photos with a white border and embellished them with some Basics washi tape in colors which coordinate with the papers.
I love stitching on paper projects lately so I stitched some cute arrows and a heart with the help of some Amy Tan stencils by American Crafts on some of the pages.
I am really happy with the result and want to make more cute travel mini albums as I love to travel to all the cool cities in Europe. I will visit Vienna in May and will go to Paris in July!

There’s nothing more fun than documenting all of baby’s firsts. Stick around and check out the sweet baby boy mini albums Samantha Taylor created.
When my boys were babies, I had not yet discovered the joy of scrapbooking, so I have lots of notes about their first year in a traditional baby book. I thought it would be fun to use Special Delivery to create a mini album for each of my boys with the highlights from their first year. Since I have 2 boys I created 2 Big Moments Mini Albums
To keep these simple, I decided to put just the notes and dates into these albums. As you can see, there are no pictures.
I went through my boys’ baby books and made a list of the moments I wanted to include for each album. I made sure they were in chronological order, and then I just dug into all the amazing papers, stickers and embellishments from Special Delivery. I created my covers first, and then worked through the albums one event at a time.
You can use any style of mini album to do this, but I chose a method called back to back mini album binding. You can find a tutorial on how to put this kind of mini album together on my blog today.
When you’re all done you’ll have some great memories all in a cute and compact book! My finished books measure 4″ x 4″ and are less than 1/2″ thick.

We’ve had such fun sharing an array of fun ways to use journal cards this week. If you’re still not sure how you’d use them though, today’s journal card mini book by Designer Marjan Pel will definitely win you over!
I used the 6×6 paper pad for the base and adhered 2 sheets of paper for the inner pages and 3 sheets of paper for a more sturdy cover.
BUT, it was the journaling cards that came in quite handy. I used them as an embellishment and for the journaling.
I adhered at least 2 journaling cards to each double spread. Some of the cards work as an hidden journaling behind the photo or patterned paper.
I embellished the pages with lots of coordinating stickers, die-cuts, photo overlays and the cute paper clips.
To give this mini book a more personal note I wrote some sentiments like “sweet”, “cute” or “you are loved” with a brush and Mr. Huey’s Misting Spray in navy on 4×4 sized patterned paper.
I stamped more sentiments with a roller stamp.
