I was so excited when the bride contacted me about purchasing an Adventure Book to use in their engagement shoot. I went out on a limb and asked her if they would be willing to share teh photos with. This lovely couple was kind enough to oblige. 

I think the happy couple looks amazing. I just love these photos!! It’s so cute how they even found a yellow house to take the pictures in front of.

Many thanks to LittleToad for adding the My Adventure Book to this treasury.  It’s so amazing!!!

The treasury is inspired by the movie UP. The funny thing is that I actually started making these books via an alchemy request before I saw the movie. A friend of mine had taken his daughter to see the movie and told me that I just had to see it.  Sure enough, it was a great movie.

Check out the treasury and the many talented etsy sellers who contributed to it.

My Adventure Book

 

Finally!!!!!! Yes, I finally found the time to make more “My Adventure Books”. I’ve been travelling (Japan), battling serious jet lag, sick and just plan busy but this weekend I sat down and made some books. I’m so excited. The design is slightly different but I am so happy with the outcome. The books look more like the one in the movie.

I know I’ve been saying this about all my albums lately, but I love this mini album.  These pictures were all taken with my phone on a trip to Detoit last year. We were enjoying happy hour at Greektown Casino and I whipped out my camera phone and starting snapping away. 

When it came time to scrapbook,  I couldn’t pick which pictures to use since so many of the pictures are so similiar (and of course they were all camera phone quality) . So this style of mini was perfect because I was able to use all the pictures. 

This album ended up being so much fun to work on for a number of reasons… 

  1. He loves the movie “Up” and the My Adventure Book. I thought it would be fun to do a spin on that book 
  2. I’ve been dying to make a mini album like this every since I saw something similiar in an magazine (Simple Scrapbooks: Mini Albums in a Evening) 
  3.  It was quick and easy!!! Love the sense of accomplishment!!! 
  4. I have so many small weekend trips to scrapbook that I’m inspired to work on them all 
  5. I only used 2 sheets of patterned paper (double-sided)

 

Here are a couple of the inside pages

Album Stats:

  • Pinished size: 10×4″

Here is a sneak peak of my most recent mini album. I will post the rest of the album soon…..

Since joining Etsy, I’ve seen a ton of requests for Adventur

e Books.  So far, I’ve made about 4 of them. I’m really happy with this latest one.  I think I’ve greatly improved on my techniques. Now, all I have to do is find some letters that I love. I love these, but unfortunately I can’t find any more of them.
