Laura’s Palm Springs Mini Album

Laura's Palm Springs Mini Album (click through for more photos)        Hi Guys! Most of you know by now that I'm pregnant and our little #gummerbaby is due in May (yay!). We decided to take a Babymoon trip to Palm Springs last month while I could still easily travel and we invited a few of our favorite pals to come along and make the trip even more fun! Since my list of things to do before the baby comes only seems to get longer and longer, I wanted to make sure and make a mini photo book of our trip ASAP before I ran out of time! It's was pretty easy to get a lot of cute pictures in Palm Springs because, well, the whole place is just so darn cute! Here's a few highlights from the mini book of our trip…

The first time we passed the official "Welcome to Palm Springs" sign it was pouring down rain and already dark, so I was glad we could come back later and get a better picture of it while the sun was out. The desert area behind the sign is so pretty!

Yay!

It takes a little longer than writing it out, and you need to have various sizes on hand, but I love how it looks when finished!

Love them. This was a great album to use gold letters and embellishments in and really compliment the gold of the album cover as well. I feel like this album has a colorful and fun vibe to it, which is perfect because so does Palm Springs! I can't wait to go back on another trip sometime, but until then, I can always take a stroll down memory lane with this cutie album…xo. Laura

  • Those gold chipboard letters are EVERYTHING. Palm Springs has got to be the most photogenic place. I went a year and a half ago and couldn’t stop taking photos of everything.

  • if you plan on breastfeeding you won’t be able to wear those dresses for a while. you’ll want to wear more convenient clothes, dresses that open in the front or 2 pieces so that you can lift your shirt to feed your baby. before i had my daughter i mostly wore dresses, then i had to put them away for a log while. she´s 2 now and only now i am starting to bring them back to my wardrobe.

  • Hi Jasilyn! Laura uses this Canon printer: https://www.usa.canon.com/internet/portal/us/home/products/details/printers/inkjet-multifunction/ts-series-inkjet/ts8020-black/pixma-ts8020 🙂 -Jacki

  • This looks like it was such a fun trip! I love the way you chose to embellish the album.

  • I am addicted to alpha stickers because I agree with you that they look so much better than handwriting. I love them so much that even my fiancé has noticed that they are my number one scrapbooking buy.

  • I’ve been dying to go to Palm Springs! Love these pics.

    xo,

  • Hey Laura, have you ever tried Chatbooks? It’s my new favorite way to print photos (mostly because it requires veeerry little work on my end!).

    They’re a photo book app for iPhone or Android (finally something for us android users!) that can pull pictures from your Instagram, Facebook, or camera roll. It’s only $8 a book and they give away your first book free. Also, they’re running a promo that if you refer 5 people, you’ll get 5 YEARS worth of books for free! If anyone’s interested, I can give you my link for a free book. 🙂

  • I used to do a lot of scrapbooking- this is a great way of scrapbooking on a smaller basis!! Brings a lot of fun to photo albums, can’t wait to try!

  • Beautiful as always! Can you recommend a precise paper trimmer for sizing photos to inserts? I’ve been searching and searching and I know you ladies will have all the info…
