I am addicted to making mini albums and books. I have dozens of them, almost all of them empty, stacked up in my studio. I always have good intentions that they will be completed. As soon as I get the photos processed. As soon as I journal the events. As soon as I finish that sketch I want to include. I never seem to run out of excuses.
For my upcoming trip to Chicago, I'm trying something different. I created an album before the trip. There are places to journal, envelopes in which to tuck little bits of memorabilia, and plenty of room for photos.
I really like the way it turned out. I used a 7 Gypsies spiral envelope album and Teresa Collins Travel Ledger kit.
I inserted a folder in the back of the book to hold a mini art journal.
