Let's Fly Away! by Tara Chaussee

Hi everyone! It’s Tara here with @secretbees_studio! Travel albums are the best! It is always so heartwarming to look back and relive all of those special memories! The new 'Let's Go' collection is all about the fun parts of traveling and is great for trips near home or abroad!



I was captivated by the chipboard frames in this collection and decided to create a mini album with all of them! I decided to document a fairly recent trip to Tuscany and Rome, Italy and added in some fun interactive elements as well as a few extra pages so I could fit in tons of photos and memories!



To add in even more fun and interest, I made a shaker with the top frame which is aptly titled 'Let's Go'. I backed it with some plane themed paper from the collection and then added in a variety of small shaker charms as well as some pieces from the collection along with lots of tiny hearts!



Starting with the second frame, I added in a pull-tag feature at the top or side of each so I could add in journaling! I used a tag from the collection for each slider and then layered them with stickers, decorative brads and enamel dots! Super fun! These tags pull out from each frame to remind me of those precious memories!



The frame fronts are the feature of the album, but I also added photos and/or embellishments to the back so I could use more of the charming patterned papers of the collection and more of the fabulous decorative pieces too!



For the extra pages, I used the patterned papers along with various sizes of the journaling cards. I had such a hard time deciding which decorative pieces to use for embellishments because they are all so darn cute!



I hooked the entire album together with a large metal ring and even embellished that with a travel tag, tassels and some charms made with decorative elements from the collection! This was such a special trip and I am so glad I could document it with this fabulous and delightful collection! Visit my Instagram page to see a video of the album!
