summer celebration mini matchbook.

The signs of fall are everywhere.  Here where I live in Alberta, Canada the leaves on the trees are slowly starting to change.  The bright and vibrant green that we all had become so accustomed to enjoying is now transforming itself into shades of yellow, orange and red.

Thankfully, I do love fall.  It is my most favourite season.  However, summer is summer.  It is awesome, but it always seems to fade away so fast.

I was inspired by these feelings to dig into my stash of supplies and photos to create a little place where I could celebrate and remember some of my favourite moments from summer.

Using Heidi Swapp's foto flipbook was the perfect place to house these memories.  Not only is it an already made mini book but the pages and extras that are included are so cute.  In no time at all you can quickly create such a gorgeous little album!

I incorporated a lot of my Instagram photos in this particular mini, however it also comes with 4 x 6 page protectors ready to go so you can just easily slip in your 4 x 6 photos, patterned paper or whatever else your heart desires.  The page protectors would also be a fantastic way to hold memorabilia as well, all that would need to be done to close the opening would be a quick use of your sewing machine to close it up.

Using Heidi Swapp's mini Instagram frames, stamps, disco shapes (which i LOVE and seriously are the cutest addition to any project) rub-ons and no limits stix embellishing this little baby was super easy and really fun.  Top it off with some personalized journaling and voila! A mini album celebrating summer and a place I can go when the leaves start to really begin turning and the air has that familiar chill. have been amazing.  :)
