Hey all!! Today I have the beginnings of my Oregon Coast mini album. We took a trip over to Newport, Oregon last year and I've been wanting to do a mini album ever since. Last year I shared a few pocket pages from the trip (you can see those here). Those are in my family album but I wanted to have a separate album that has more photos & journaling from the trip.
6x8 albums are my go-to size for trip albums. They're manageable, don't take up as much room as a 12x12 album, and they're pretty easy to put together. For my album I'll be using a combination of the Let's Get Lost Classic Kit and Daily Diary kit.
When I'm putting together an album like this I first try to figure out the layout of my album. For this album I created 6x8 'dividers' for each day highlighting the main adventure we took that day (whale watching, visit to the aquarium, lighthouse). Then I'll share some of the other things we did, mostly toward the back of the album (like playing on the beach, collecting seashells, kite flying, etc).
Here are a few more my main pages that I've put together so far:
Now I can go back and use my pocket pages & journaling cards to add all of the extra photos for those days. Stay tuned for my Oregon Coast album // part 2!
