Basically Bare Travel Album

Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by today.  I'm excited to share my first project with you as part of the Basically Bare design team!  My family and I are planning a trip this Summer so I thought this would be the perfect Travel mini album to create so after our trip I can simply just add photos and journaling to it.
For this album I used the Basically Bare Timeless Tab album.  To start with I removed all of the pages from the metal coils, designed and covered the pages, then used my cinch machine to punch the holes through the pattern paper that  I covered the album with.  So let's start with the cover shall we.
I placed the pages on the pattern paper, traced around it then cut it out.  Once the pages were adhered to the album there were a few spots that needed a little file action to smooth the paper, then I inked all the edges.
I love to tie ribbon, trims and whatever other "junk" I can find onto the binding of my mini albums.
Now for a peak inside. As you can see I have photo mats ready to go along with journaling cards.  I love how lots of the pattern papers have that one sheet that you can cut apart with fun images to add to you projects.  In the photo below you can see on the right side that I used that as a fun little insert into the album.  The back side of this is the perfect spot to add another photo to.
This album has fun envelope pieces inside which will be a fun way to insert keepsakes from the trip.  Of course I had to add pattern papers and embellies to them!
This next page I think is maybe my favorite of the album.  On the left side I made a little flip up piece to hide the photos.  That piece only has adhesive on the sides and bottom to make a top pocket to slide in the journaling card.  On the right side you might not be able to see it very well but there is a half piece of acrylic.  I used Art Anthology gesso and stencils to place to word "Remember" on it.
Supplies Used:
Basically Bare - Timeless Tabs Album
Echo Park Paper - Getaway
Xyron - Mega Runner
Thanks so much for stopping by today and thank you to Basically Bare for having me as part of your family!  I hope this album inspires you to create a fun travel album for your next trip!
