Seaside Coaster Album

With summer winding down, it's time to gather all of those vacation photos and put them to use! Turn a small coaster album into a fun summer vacation keepsake with the "Seaside" Collection as the inspiration.  

A journal card from the "Enhancements 12X12 Paper" was trimmed down to size with a round die for the cover and then embellished with stickers and Petaloo blooms.

The inner pages of the 4" album, were decorated with prints from the 6X6 paper pad and then inked around the edges with "Sky Blue" Chalking Ink by Quick Quotes.

Again, the journal card was altered to a size that would fit nicely onto the album page.  Stickers were layered on with foam adhesive.

When adding bulky items such as flowers, keep in mind how the following page will lay against it so that pieces don't become bent or creased.

The red/white/blue cording from May Arts compliments the collection perfectly and it's a great add on for tags, as well as a border around each of the pages.  

To the back page of the album, a larger, scalloped chipboard piece was dressed and then attached for extra detail.  

A 2.75" ring was used to hold all of the pages together and left plenty of room for a set of large ribbon bows.  An album this size is ideal for smaller photos.  Use round dies, punches or a wallet size printing option to get the best photo fit for your pages.
