legoland mini album

Recently on the Heidi Swapp blog I shared this LEGOLAND album.

You can see I used a lego plate as my cover and added one of my son's cars to decorate it, I simply hot glued the paper and card to the lego plate.

I began with a Color Pop memory file which I trimmed in half.

I added in a LEGOLAND map and added some Hello Today Ephemera to embellish it.

Hello Today pattern paper.

New Favorite Things pattern paper.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the LEGOLAND word from the pattern paper and backed it with more pattern paper.

I created a flap to add extra photos.

I printed my photo off as a full page and embellished it simply with some mini stamps, Heidi's hand written word and glitter shapes.

Here a created a peekaboo page by trimming three sides on certain areas on a sheet of Hello Today pattern paper.

I am in love with the new Favorite Things Puffy Stickers!

I added qr codes  of my boys  on their fav rides at the park.

Ephemera from Hello Today.

Here I used one of the Color Magic cards to create a liftable to add extra photos.

On each photo I used some of the Hello Today mini stamps to embellish.

Here I added a fold out page .

Another page cut with my silhouette , this time I added some acrylic to back the letters.

I sewed through a memory file to create pockets for extra photos.

Hello Today Chipboard shapes add texture.

For the miniland photos I wanted to create an extra mini album, so I used one of the wooden albums as my cover and attached it with large jump rings to the back lego cover.

More pockets for extra photos.

QR codes of fun new displays.

A Mini Memory file cut in half.

Here I cut a slit in the pattern paper from Favorite Things to house the tags with extra photos.

My boys favourite lego chima to complete my album.

I can't tell you in a few words how much i love this album and everything that you did in it! You see, Legoland is in my neck of the woods and my two boys practically grew up there. I have tons of photos of Legoland through the years and could only dream up of creating something as beautiful and meaningful as this!

I love this album - I am racing to the store to buy a couple of base plates to make my son (adult) a Lego album. He is in the Lego User Group in Toronto. (they design some of the displays in the stores)

I'm thinking these boys of yours might be fighting over this album when they are older... quick make another one!

I am definitely CASEing this album. CASE = Copy And Steal Everything!
