An Everyday Home Adventure Mini Album with Jamie Leija

We are so excited about the launch of our latest online workshop, the Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class, and a few of our design team members are excited about it, too! They’ve been inspired by the class to create their own mini albums using the same supplies that our contributors have used—with spectacular results! First this month, we have Jamie Leija sharing a spectacular traveler’s notebook all about her home.

Supplies | Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class with Stamp, Live Laugh Love 12″ x 12″ Paper Collection, Live Laugh Love 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, Live Laugh Love Double-Sided Journaling Tags, Live Laugh Love Bits and Pieces, Live Laugh Love Washi Tape Stickers, Live Laugh Love Puffy Stickers, Live Laugh Love Enamel Dots, Live Laugh Love Wood Veneers, Black Puffy Alphabet Stickers, Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers

Hiya! It’s Jamie, and I’m excited to be here with you today. As you may know, Elle’s Studio just launched its latest online workshop, the Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class. Along with the course, there is an exclusive class stamp set which pairs perfectly with the new Live Laugh Love collection! Using these items, I created my own mini album inspired by the class content and products.

The mini itself is my take on a traveler’s notebook. It has front to back pages like a traveler’s notebook, but this one is bound together with brads. It’s very photo heavy and I like that about it.

The cover is one of my favorite parts. I decided to print it on vellum and then added just a few items to embellish: The word “home,” using the Teal Puffy Alphabet Stickers, “Everyday Adventures” from the Everyday Adventures Stamp, a die cut and two enamel dots. It’s super-simple and totally classic.

For each spread, the photos are on the right side. Everything is very clean and linear. On the left side, I went wild with the Live Laugh Love Journaling Tags and 6″ x 6″ Paper Stack, since I needed to fully cover the backside of my photo paper.

I added tons of embellishments: die cuts, puffy stickers, enamel dots, wood veneer. and washi tape stickers. There was just so much to choose from in the Everyday Adventures Product Bundle, a specially-priced bundle of the supplies that the contributors used for their class projects.

The photos themselves are just ones of us around the house, or the house itself. We’re fairly new home owners, so this is still a very big adventure for us. I love capturing the house in its current state. It’s all finished but not decorated or stamped with our mark just yet. I want to remember the beginning!

This album was so much fun to put together and it is something I’m so happy to have completed! I just loved the “everyday” theme of the class and the stamp set so much. It’s great for just about any mini you might want to put together, everything little and large!

Be sure to check out the Everyday Adventures Mini Album Class in either the class-only or class + stamp options. We know it will inspire you to create your next miniature sized album to document your everyday memories!
