Hey, everyone! Happy Saturday, and welcome to the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Vacation Blog Hop. The wonderful ladies from my PPPR Design Team and I have created some fun vacation-themed projects using Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons files. We also have a great prize up for grabs, are offering a special surprise for hoppers, and will be kicking off our new challenge for this month. So, be sure to stop by each and every blog along the way...you don't want to miss one bit of the inspiration!
For my project, I decided to create a simple vacation-themed mini-album.
Now, I've never created a mini album before, so I started out super simple. I created the shaped cover by cutting out two suitcases from the PPPR Are We There Yet? Cutting Files set. I added a computer-generated sentiment to the PPPR Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files for the front cover. Then, I just created an accordion-fold set of pages from 6" x 12" strips of kraft cardstock. Each page, once folded, measures exactly 4" x 6". So, when I'm ready to fill the album, I can either add just 4" x 6" photos to the pages and call it a day, or I can cut the photos down a bit and add more embellishments. Or, I can do a combination of the two. I have tons of travel photos trapped in my computer, so I'm excited to find just the right ones to fill up this album and show my love of travel.
This hop also kicks off our new Vacation Challenge. Link up your vacation-themed project that uses PPPR files for a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate to Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. It can be about summer vacation from school, travel, or just hanging out at the pool....you choose, as long as it uses PPPR files and has something to do with vacation in some way.
