Mini Summertime Adventure Album

Mini summertime adventure album #ctmh #closetomyheart #cricut #cricutartbooking #cricutyouarehere #ctmhjack #camping #cabin #vacationCan you believe summer is already coming to a close? Oh how time flies when you’re having fun! Though it may be hard to wave farewell to days lounging by the pool, visiting family, and traveling to beautiful destinations, you can keep those summertime memories alive and well by creating a mini album. Summertime doesn’t have to end!

We created this camping-themed album with two of our exclusive Cricut® collections: Artbooking and You Are Here.

The Artbooking collection includes a variety of tabbed, hole-punched pages designed especially for creating mini albums like this one! To decorate those pages, we turned to the You Are Here collection, which is our newest Cricut® collection. This collection includes designs to help you document your adventures both near and far away from home. Combine these two collections together, and you’ve got everything you need to create any number of mini summertime adventure albums!

You’ll see lots of the Jack paper packet in our mini album. With its tree, woodgrain, and flannel-inspired plaid patterns, these papers are perfect for documenting your outdoor adventures. Just remember, it’s only available until the end of the month while supplies last, so grab yours while you can!

If these pages inspire you to make an album of your own, feel free to refer to the recipe at the bottom of this post to see which products we used, as well as more details about the Cricut® cuts.

Find YOUR Summertime Stamp Set

Which summertime diva are you? The sun goddess who can gracefully lounge for hours at the beach? The adventurous mountaineer who proudly wears her bumps and bruises like medals? The barbecuing and sweet-treat baking beauty? The late night “read-everything-in-sight” bookworm? The backyard mama who sumo wrestles her kids to lather on the sunscreen? Whichever describes you, our summer stamp sets will be sure to pair perfectly with your unique summertime memories.

Our My Acrylix® Campfire Lifestyle stamp set works great for those nature lovers out there…way out there…on a mountain somewhere. It also lends itself to all other sorts of adventures, like a vacation in Hawaii, which is depicted in the page below. Our brilliant artist played off the mountain-like shape in the photo by using the Great Adventure stamp, and we think it’s pretty rockin’. 🙂

Stamps for summer

Our My Acrylix® Ice-Cold Summer stamp set is great for summertime party invitations or layouts about the greatest, tastiest summer feasts. This stamp set would also make a very cute companion for the Taste of Summer paper packet we offered in May. But that’s not all this stamp set can do! Take a look at the martini umbrella stamp on this beach-themed page:
