1. Begin by choosing the products you would like to use in the album. I used the Fine & Dandy and #Summer collections. I started by getting everything ready and laying out my supplies before adhering them down. Adhere two strips of washi tape and then layer the title on top. Use a sewing machine to stitch the title.

2. Create a tab with washi tape on the "Today I Will" page and staple down. Lay out title before gluing down. Add stickers, acrylic camera shape, and phrase stamp to pages.

3. Next, I put together a page for summer birthdays. I thought the "currently Makes Me Happy" page and the calendar next to it was perfect for birthdays. Adhere chipboard pieces to page and staple down. Adhere a small envelop and tuck in a small metal rimmed tag.

6. Create a tab with washi tape and staple down on "Places I want to Travel to" page. Stamp phrase stamp just below title. Embellish by adding road trip wood veneer piece and acrylic sunglasses. Trim a piece of acetate transparency and adhere to adjoining page with washi tape. Use a sewing machine to stitch in place. Layer title and ephemera pieces.

of washi tape across the bottom of the page and staple down with mini stapler. Finish by adhering plastic bow.
