A Hashtag Mini Album #thephippstakecharleston

Don't you just love Instagram?
It has become my new favorite form of social media.
It's quick and easy and makes memory keeping fun! 

While on our vacation to Charleston,
our family decided to create our own hash tag for our trip.


We did it for fun as well as for memory keeping! 

Almost as soon as we got home, I uploaded all of my Instagram photos 
to Walgreens and had them printed out.  

And here is what I did with them...
 I made a Mini!!

For the front and back cover I used framing mat board.
Most mat boards are acid free and very sturdy so they work great for mini album covers. 
They come in as many colors as you can imagine!
And since I work in a frame shop, I have a million scraps to choose from. 
 This one happens to be a fabric mat board. 
I love the texture and how it works so well with the Kraft and gold foil papers.

For the pages I used this paper pad by DCWV and 
a few Heidi Swapp's project life cards and ephemera.

 I am in love with Gold foil right now, It is just so perfect for this Charleston album.

Instead of my usual "Bind it All" binding, I decided to use binding rings instead. 
I love the fact that the album lays flat when you are looking through 
and I absolutely that they are Gold! 

The scripture I chose for this album is

Psalm 77:11-12

11 I will remember the works of the Lord: surely I will remember thy wonders of old.
12 I will meditate also of all thy work, and talk of thy doings.
