I’ve been really inspired lately to work on my travel albums. Maybe because I haven’t been able to travel anywhere for a while (hello, pandemic!). Looking back through my photos and ephemera takes me back to those places and relive those memories.
I started with my Ali Edwards Story Camp album. It was the last trip I went on back in January 2020. The event was held in Eugene Oregon.
My first step was to look at all of my photos and pull out my ephemera and see what I was working with. Based on the length of the trip, and the “stuff” I had collected from the trip, I decided to go with a Travelers Notebook sized album from Citrus Twist Kits. I also used the Ali Edwards 2020 Travel collection (both the physical and digital kits) and add-ons.
Next step was printing out all of my photos and coming up with a formula for my album. Using one kit and a basic layout formula for the album helped me to complete the album quickly because I had less choice.
After the photos were in the album I added my ephemera and then added all of my journaling.
Final steps were to add the embellishments. I had some fun playing with my gelli plate to create the intro page for each day.
I love how this album turned out, and so happy to have all these memories documented.
See this album come together from start to finish in my process video:
