Bahamas Mini Album

Today I have a mini album to share with you.  The first of three!  I had three vacation/trips I needed to scrapbook and I wasn't sure exactly how to tackle them.  The first set of photos I worked on were from last year's vacation and I had well over 100-200 photos.  After much research and deliberation, I decided on a Project Life 6x8 album and used page protectors for a snap album.  I bought three different styles of page protectors and mixed and matched them throughout the album.

I started by adding all my photos in first and then went back and added in journaling as needed.  This album only has embellishing on the cover page.  I wanted to keep it as simple as possible, so I would finish it :)

Here are a few photos.

Here's my cover page, with minimal embellishing :)  I used a plain 6x8 page protector for this, then on the back, I was able to stuff all of our maps and flyers we had collected.

I used several of these 4x4 page protectors throughout the album.  They have an adhesive strip along one side so you can add them anywhere.  LOVE them!

Now these page protectors were a little odd, but worked out great for journaling strips.

 Another odd one, but the little squares worked out good for bits and pieces of journaling.

And another 6x8 page protector, for those photos I just didn't want to cut up :)

What do you do for vacation photos?


  1. What a cute little album! Love the photos and the inserts!

  2. Your album looks fantastic! I always manage to take way too many pics and don't think that I could ever get away with anything smaller than a 12x12. Maybe I need an intervention!

  3. Your album looks great.
    And great idea to keep it simple to get it done :)
    I like what you did with the odd sectioned page protectors.
    I have to say I love the last photo, so sweet

  4. Love your mini album and the simplicity of it! Where did you get a 4x4 page protector?? Those are so cute!

  5. Love it! I usually just add vacation into the current year album.
