This is a total scraplift from the Dec. 2009 Creating Keepsakes album. They featured an article about how to complete an album quick! Having almost 6 inches of pictures from a trip to San Diego in 2008, I had to do something! This was a quick, easy and visually pleasing album. Here is the "recipe:" 6 horizontal 4x6 photos, 2 vertical 6x4 photos, 1 2x8 inch cardstock strip, 3 strips of black cardstock, .75 inches x 12. That's it! I added the little doo-dad's to it to jazz it up, but I completed this album in two days! (Long days, but days!)
Here is a few photos from the various pages! (I won't bore you with the whole thing! ;) )
Here is the first "section" of the scrapbook. I color coordinated each section in regards to the place we were. So, the San Diego Zoo's logo features red, so the accent color on all the Zoo pages is red. I purchased a "patch" at the zoo and used it for the title of the location on the left hand side. All you do is affix 6 horizontal photos on one page and then run two of your thin black cardstock pieces. One runs horizontally and the other vertically. Where ever they cross, I put an accent piece. Then on the right side I lined up the third thin black cardstock piece level with the other horizontal piece (on other page) and added the two vertical pictures and the red accent block. I then added a small, matching accent to that side.
(Here's another page of the same location! The accent matches something in the photos, ie. there is a picture of a giraffe, so I had the cricut make a giraffe.)
Also notice here that I didn't have a 2nd vertical photo so I cut the brochure to the right size and used that as a "photo" filler!
Also notice here that I used the tickets as one of my vertical "photos."
