Corona Del Mar

A few years back we discovered a nice, semi-private beach in part of Corona Del Mar, near Newport Beach, CA. It is a bit of a hike down a crazy hill but well worth it — privacy, tide pools, clean sand…it's still my favorite. This summer our first beach trip was to Corona Del Mar. Our niece and nephews joined us and we had a grand time.


I used a Clear Scraps Chipboard Uturn Album to capture these wonderful “first of summer” memories of my family. The arrows lend a fun, whimsical feel to the album while the beach themed papers I chose help continue the beach theme throughout the book. The Uturn Album is perfect for any occasion that includes action or traveling – change the paper to change the theme but the action of the album remains the same. To cover the pages of the album, I adhered them to paper and then cut them out with a craft knife.


I covered the 3 holes in the album pages with the patterned paper and punched new binding holes with the Bind It All machine. I then added extra tags, postcards, and kraft envelopes as mini pages between the chipboard pages. I used 1″ Antique Brass O-Wires to bind the book.  I then added photos and embellishments.
The largest star from the Clear-N-Chip Carson's Park pack nests perfectly in the star on the second page of the Uturn Album. I glued the acrylic star from the Carson's Park pack to coordinating paper and added it to the star shaped tab on the Uturn album.
The Uturn Album creates a sense of action and fun in this summer themed mini. The possibilities with this album are limitless!
