I love Cape Cod. I am lucky enough that we get to spend a week there every summer, but I would LOVE to live there! This year we had an amazing week with perfect beach weather, so of couse I had to create a mini-album right away. Now we can re-live our vacation anytime.
The first thing I did was select a paper line and coordinating embellishments. This was the easiest part! I chose Little Yellow Bicycle’s Boardwalk collection. The papers are such a good quality, they feel almost like linen or canvas. And the embellishments went perfectly with our story.
I took a Cloud 9 board book that I’ve had for a while. It can be challenging to scrap with this album because once you start adding ‘stuff’ to your pages, the book doesn’t close. I decided to cut the book apart, drill a hole with my Fiskars hand drill, and use a binder ring to hold it all together.
And this cute little button heart is an Epiphany Crafts custom epoxy button.
“I wish summer would never end.” Such a perfect sentiment for me. I love all 4 seasons, but I best enjoy lazy summer days at the beach.
Don’t be jealous that I’ve already scrapped my vacation. I’m a non-chronological scrapper. Some days I scrap yesterday, some days I scrap last year (and belive me, I have a lot of last year, and the year before to scrap). This vacation and the LYB papers inspired me to start And complete this project and I just LOVE how it turned out.
Hope you feel inspired to get crafty today!
