Hawaii Smash Book/Mini Album

Here is a look at another type of Smash style mini album that I created.  This one was made using a UniKeep binder. These are great for creating mini albums, photo books, and journals.  They help protect your photos and creations. They are sturdy and can stand up to traveling too. So they make great projects to take with you on vacation.

This particular UniKeep binder came with photo sleeve inserts. This will make it easy to create a mini album. You can insert photos and journal cards in the sleeves and presto, you've got a quick personalized album!

Here are a few more views:

Tip: To create an insert long enough to cover the front, back and spine of the binder, print 2 papers with the background digital paper pattern and join them in the center with a strip of paper the width of the spine.
