Hiya! It’s Jamie and today I’m sharing the continuation of a mini book I started in 2011! It’s a ring bound mini book with 4 sections. I decided to document a few of the day trips I’ve taken around the UK in it. I completed the Dover section in 2011. And finally six years later, the Dorset section is complete!
I loved the colors and the vibe of the Creekside collection. They reminded me of this trip that I took to Dorset, England in 2007. We spent nearly the entire time outdoors so there were plenty of photos to use to tell this story alongside all of the great outdoor elements in the collection.
For the title page of the Dorset section, I used two photos and a whole mess of circular embellishments to kick things off. I love all of the circular options available in this collection. I also added some of those great gold Thickers. LOVE the blue edge they have!
The pages are a mix of 8×9 and 6×8. Some of them are single pages and others are two pages spreads. I mixed in a few large photos as well. The first was 8×9 and the second was 4.5×9. The rest of the photos are printed all different sizes, some small and others smaller! I tried to mix up the photo placement and arrangement on each page. Some are more linear and on a grid, while others are more jaunty.
My favorites bits of the collection are all of the amazing stars. They evoke such a starry eyed feel and I’m so happy to have included them in this project. The bonfire photos I had were perfect to pair with them.
I used just about every bit of the Creekside collection to make these mini album pages (aside from the notebooks and printed cards!) and I love how easily and seamlessly everything went together. It’s made me fall in love with this six year old project all over again!
