Vacation Albums (Non-Disney)

OK here they are!! The non-Disney Vacation albums!! Ta-da!!

I stuck to the same American Crafts albums as the other albums so they'd match. I have a thing about matching. Don't judge me!

I used some pink binder clips I had picked up somewhere (maybe Michael's bargain bins?) And yes I realize the numbers are crooked...don't ask me how I missed that when I was rubbing the numbers on. Again don't judge me!Found this Making Memories die-cut....Got these Creative Imaginations papers at Michael's & thought it would work perfectly for these albums. They are double sided too. Cute!! (You can see the other side in the next pic) For the title I used the Cricut Printing 101 cartridge.This was our very 1st trip together & I was SO excited about it!! Used a couple of postcards in there too since I didn't take any of our hotel. This was before my scrapping/taking pics obsession grew. Used a regular page protector for the Siegfried & Roy show program. Used the Cricut Alphalicious cartridge for the Bahamas title.Added our Honeymoon pics to this album since in theory it's a vacation too. Same Cricut cartridge for the Hawaii title. Sorry some of the pics are blurry...too lazy to re-take them after I realized it. Don't judge me!!

Used a "road trip" themed paper also from Creative Imaginations. Used the Cricut Plantin Schoolbook cartridge for the title (same for Hershey).
Used the scraps I had left over from the 8x8 album I did. Sorta wishing I hadn't done the smaller album now that I plan on doing all the vacations like this but it's done.
Got to use some really old paper I've been hanging onto for this!

All together in the non-Disney albums I managed to fit 3 trips to Vegas (didn't bother showing all the pics), 1 trip to Bahamas, 1 to Hawaii & 2 road trips. See?? We do know there's more places to visit than Disney!!! ;) Don't judge me!! LOL!

Wow! You have been so productive! I am jealous! Thanks for the inspiration! Hopefully, once I am settled and moved in, I can get as much done! Looks great!

Love the new banner- it looks awesome!

And your vacation albums are great. I loved your Disney books, and these are just as cool. I'm going to have to steal your idea for tagging the spines. I have mind all lined up with little pieces of paper binder clipped to them right now, but I love your decorated tags!
