Destination Ireland – Mini album by Audrey Underwood

Hi there,
Audrey here with some More NEW product. Using the 4×6 size Foundations Waterfall Enclosure in kraft. These are ideal to use as a small mini album or you can add them into the Foundation Albums or Binders for that extra surprise.

I decided to make mine into a little reminder of a holiday I took with my sister back to the country where we were born, Ireland. We actually hadn’t been back together since our parents emigrated to Australia over 40yrs prior.

As kids, our family had a special place on the west coast of Ireland that all of the family on my Dad’s side holidayed each year until we moved to Australia. Inishmaine in Co Mayo holds a special part of us all in our hearts, so it was one of the places we took a road trip to while there. We always called it ‘Abbey’ and have such happy memories of the days spent there. I added photos taken on the day and some old ones that added to the memories.

I started with the front cover. I played with the awesome new sheet of Vintage Artistry Anywhere washi tape to cover one side of the front and a couple of pages inside. I thought it may have been a little tricky at first but ended up gliding on quite easily and I loved the finish. I added some Vintage Artistry Anywhere Rub-On Transfers over the washi. I also used transfers on the other side of the front.I used various pieces of the new Vintage Artistry Anywhere, both the 12×12 sheets and the Vintage Artistry Anywhere 6×8 Collection pack to cover the pages, some half the page and others the full page. I made little pockets on a couple of pages. I also left some of the pages the original kraft colour and rubbed some Vintage Artistry Anywhere Rub-On Transfers over them. In fact, I loved these transfers so much I actually nearly used the whole packet in this little album. Once I printed my photos I realized I wanted to use more of them than planned, plus I didn’t want to cover up some of the paper patterns so I made some extra pages. (See below on how to.) The Album allows for extra lumpy, bumpy, mine maybe a little full but I was having so much fun creating it. It still came together and tied easily, so I’m all good, right! 😆 I trimmed and cut some of the 4×6 photos to fit the pages instead of just scoring them as they sat better.

I love to have little extra tabs sticking from albums like these. The new Vintage Artistry Essentials – 3×4 File Frame Set is perfect to sit over and frame some of the photos with the tabs sticking out of top and sides of the pages. I popped rub-ons on the tabs for extra colour. I also used tickets from the Vintage Artistry Anywhere Ephemera Bits and hearts, signs, tickets and more from the Vintage Artistry Anywhere – 6×8 Collection pack, laser-cut pieces. (OMGosh,,, I love love love these sheets) Once I had the photos in I just played away! I used lots and lots of bits from the fantastic Vintage Artistry Anywhere range. The laser-cut pieces in the range are so good and long with the ephemera bits, chipboard stickers, Wishing Bubbles & Trinkets, etc… it really made the album come together.

Once I started to print out photos I had more that I wanted to add. So I just made some extra pages and stuck them in as the album has plenty of space in it for lumpy or thicker creations. It’s very easy. See the little instruction guide
