Camera Mini Album with Box - July Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello friends! Today is Lori Whitlock's July Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site too because she has a sale and more great products for you!

For my project today, I made a Disney themed camera shaped mini album that tucks inside a suitcase box! Ha! How fun is that?! I used one of Lori's fabulous cutting files called Matchbox Magical Mini Album (link below) and it makes the cutest little keepsake.

The album is perfect for photos of a theme park vacation, cruise, or birthday party. I created it with the Echo Park, A Magical Voyage Collection designed by Lori. I also used this collection for my Cruise Mini Album & Altoid Tin, which was another really fun project.

Let's start with the matchbox style suitcase. I made the base of it out of black cardstock. The file comes with the castle shape, a carrying handle on top, and a luggage tag that I attached with twine. Then, I added patterned paper and a few brads to the handle for an extra detail.

Inside, there's a sliding "drawer" that fits in the sleeve of the box. The mini album sits perfectly in this space.

This camera shaped scrapbook is so small and so cute. I added blue and white gingham ribbons to bind the pages and they match the pattern paper in the center perfectly. Love that!

To make the album, I cut out 5 pages using my Silhouette machine but you could add more if you'd like. I used different 12x12 solid and pattern papers from the collection for these. (Links below.)

I added 3.5"x 2.5" photo mats to each page and embellished with stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet.

Here's a fun idea ... wouldn't this be a great way to surprise the kiddos with news of an upcoming vacation?! You could make each child one and add their name to the luggage tag. Then they could save their own photos from the trip and have a special memento from your time together!
