A Magical Memories Beach Mini with Ashley Laura

Our Magical Memories collection was created with Disney theme park magic in mind, but it can be used for so much more! Today, design team member Ashley Laura is here to show us how she used it to document a fun summer trip! Let’s take a look!

Hi everyone! It’s Ashley here, sharing a fun little mini album with you all, focusing on the Magical Memories collection! I was so excited to use this collection and even though I haven’t been to Disney theme park in several years, it didn’t stop me from using it to document last summer’s beach trip! 

I started by cutting down the Magical Memories 6″ x 6″ papers to 3″ x 6″. I absolutely adore this size for a fun little two-ring album. Once I added my papers onto my rings, I immediately began adding photos and quick, simple embellishments. 

I just couldn’t help but use the castle wood veneer for our sandcastle photo!

I know it can be difficult to find the right adhesive for acetate pieces so one of my favorite techniques when creating a mini is to punch a hole right into the acetate piece and pop it in the album. You can do this with several of the larger pieces for some added texture.

I kept the pages simple so that I could focus on finishing the project. I absolutely have moments where I want to keep adding but I also know that there’s a better chance that I will finish a project if I keep the pages simple. 

Don’t you all worry about making your pages double-sided! I left my back-side pages white and it was so fun to document on a white background along with patterned papers!

Here’s a fun idea: if you travel with family members, create the album as a gift for them! 

Thanks for stopping by the Elle’s Studio blog today!
