Jill Jarvis (jjstar) here with a fun project that serves a couple different purposes… both a portable digital album and also a mini brag book!
After a trip to Disney this past December I was excited to show off our pictures. I hadn’t yet gotten my 1,400 pictures organized into the ‘official’ scrapbook, so when The Hybrid Kid (a/k/a Melissa Wilson) came out with the super cool iMagic Brag book I knew it would be a quick fix for me! Not only would I have a digital scrapbook at my fingertips (on my iPhone) but I could also have a printed version to hang on a tote bag ready to show to anyone slightly interested in our trip to the happiest place on Earth!
Here’s what I used to make my mini album:
- Digital kits: It’s Magic Kit from Mikkel Paige & iMagic Brag book from Melissa Wilson
- Ribbon from my stash
- Badge Holders from Staples
- Photos printed at walmart (2 fit on a 4×6 print)
I decided which pictures would fit best with the templates and then pulled them into the templates. I added a few more magic pieces to them using the It’s Magic Kit from Mikkel Paige.
Then about halfway through creating them for my iPhone, I realized that they would make a really cute mini scrapbook. I decided that using badge holders would be the easiest thing for this project. So I measured the ones that I had in my stash. I had to slightly resize the images to fit the holders (not a big deal, as long as you do it prior to finishing them!).
After I had the mini pages done I had them printed, trimmed them down to size, slipped them into the holders and added some fun ribbon to the top.
After I had the first one done I realized that all of the grandparents would enjoy having a record of our trip too. Now not only do I have a portable digital scrapbook on my iPhone but I also have a physical version to show off and so do the many grandparents!
