Welcome back to the blog. In under three weeks time I am surprising my husband for his 50th birthday with a five day trip to the Maldives. I have organised this vacation in secret and I cannot wait to share the destination with him at the airport. In preparation for the trip I have created a sweet little mini album that I am going to use for some of the highlight photos. I couldn’t go past the Carefree collection for this mini, so light and airy and tropical.

I began with that gorgeous Sky pattern paper from the 12 x 12 Project pad. I folded it in half and trimmed it to 7 inches tall. I used a circle punch to create a finger tab at one end and then machine stitched around the edge of three sides to create a large pocket.

I added in that Chill out sticker and die cut from the Carefree collection as a simple heading and that repeat stamping stamp comes from the Minc Clear stamp set.

I then chose 5 pattern papers from from the Carefree Project pad and trimmed them to various sized tags. I will adhere a favourite photo from each day to my tag.

For this rag I added some of the stickers from the 6×12 sticker sheet and more repeat stamping. I adding some stitching to the tag and sanded the edge.

I trimmed this spotty pattern paper into a tag shape and then added that sticker from the sticker sheet, added some stitching and sanding for a shabby feel.

For this tag I trimmed out that Enjoy the Now cut apart from the Project pad and adhered the sides of it to the tag created from the patch coloured paper. I then trimmed a smaller tag from some peach pattern paper and added some stamping. I can pull the tag out and add my photo to it.

For this tag I simply trimmed it out of some pattern paper from the Project Pad and then used the Minc clear stamp set to add some subtle stamping.

For my final tag I used that woodgrain pattern paper and that clear sticker from the sticker sheet to add a sub heading.

I love how this little tag booklet came together and cannot wait to fill it with memories from our trip.

You can find the Carefree collection at your local JoAnn store.
