Life is a Grand Adventure Mini Album wiht Authentique

Disclaimer Notice: I’ve received products/compensation as part of  Authentique Design Team. This project however, is 100% my own project! Some of the links in this post are affiliate links. I explain more HERE!

I am sharing  my "Life is a Grand Adventure" Mini Album.
My husband and I recently purchased a small travel trailer; we are planning a grand adventure this fall. I thought making a fun mini using Authentique Pastime Collection would be perfect for our adventure.

I began by die cutting and covering my mini album with Pastime pattern papers.
I add a frame to one of the journal pieces from the collection and added it to the front with some fussy cut pieces and stickers.

Inside Cover and Page 1

Page 2 and 3

Page 4 and 5

Page 5 has a hidden pocket behind a photo mat so I will be able to add a few small photos.

Add a small metal clip and ribbon to the tag.

Page 6 and 7

Page 7 has a pocket to place a tag using one of the journal pieces from the Pastime Collection along with a photo mat.

The tag is a great place to add more photos or other Epherema.

Pages 8 and 9

Pages 10 and 11

A few more creative tags using stickers and tabs from the Pastime Collection Kit.

Page 12 and 13

Tie pages into the "Life is a Grand Adventure" Mini Album with pretty ribbon!
