Wednesday: The Adventure; Part 2

I'm all about the adventures these days! I've been having all kinds of 'staycation' adventures while my friend D has been in town. There'll be a recap of that within the week but for today I thought I'd share a little mini-album I made of our adventures in Ottawa or O-town as I like to call it.

I used a Jillibean file folder for the bones of this layout and then used some neutral pattern paper, adhered to create a little book inside.Love those airplanes from the SC stamp set from their travel collection this summer.


I think my favorite part of the cover thought is the badges I used in place of the 'o's- an idea suggested by my friend Peggy & what a good one.


I used all instagram photos and stuck with a simple formula for each of the pages- a weekday title on some cardstock + some washi, a grid of 2 by 2 photos with a thin line around it and a little embellishment or two to dress it up a little.

I love those 'day of the week' stamps by Studio Calico. Aren't they awesome?!

Love them. I love this mini album. It's simple but full of 'stuff' and lots of pictures! I'm the worst at journaling so you'll notice that there are very few words...journaling is not my forte. I'm working on fixing that!

Happy hump day!



  1. I love this!!!!! I have been looking for ideas to use my file folders! This one rocks :)

  2. Love how your mini album turned out!

  3. Very, very cute!! I love the title "adventures in town" and the little round embellie for the O. So smart!!!

  4. Awesome mini book!! Just like you I take tons of pictures but when it comes to journaling... whole different issue ;) !
