We recently spend a day sightseeing in Victoria, BC. It's such a beautiful city and I came away with so many pictures that I wanted to scrapbook and document right away...
So, I decided to use the eclectic and fun Flea Market mini clipboard album to memorialize the trip. I added a lot of gold to the pages, including Flea Market's gold doily vellum, cardstock sticker labels, scrabble alpha thickers and a sweet resin rose - they match wonderfully with the city's elegant, old world charm.
We spent the entire day walking around and taking in all of the sights. We met an artist who made the most amazing images out of chalk right on the sidewalk. There was art and beauty everywhere we went. I hope we get a chance to return and spend even more time there.
There was one store window in particular that completely took my breath away. The Michal Negrin store window was full of paper cut-outs, fairies and Victorian theater. I had so many photos from there that they could have taken up every page in my album. Instead, I decided to print out the individual pictures and join them together, accordion style using washi tape along the back. It's almost like a mini-album within a mini-album. I secured the last picture to the page and added a pull tab. This clever addition allowed me to have five photos within a small area that would normally hold only one or two photos. Of course, I could of included more photos if I wanted - there is no limit to the number of photos that one can add when using this method.
On your next vacation, remember to capture a lot of photos! Use a mini-album to showcase them and an accordion style page to house any extras. I think you'll love the result!
