One Doodlebug Christmas album just wasn't enough for me so say hello to the new Merry Christmas mini!  Does anyone else think those little elves are as cute as I do?  This sweet little album measures 6x6", has 12 double sided chipboard pages and is a must-have for documenting all of your holiday fun.   
Collection by Doodlebug Designs, Album by Prima

Oh my goodness the colors in this one!  The pictures just don't do it justice.  This beautiful 5x7" mini album is titled #memories and I think it will be perfect for photos of you and your mom, sister, friend, daughter, granddaughter ... and what a beautiful and unique gift it would be!

Christmas Magic Mini

One word ... adorable!! Christmas Magic is such a cute collection and I caught myself smiling the entire time I was creating this album! From the gingham on the striped paper, to the precious little elves, to the perfect pop of pink, this line truly is magic!

For this mini (which, yes! is available as a DIY kit in my shop) I used a 6x6 chipboard album from Prima and added white card stock to all the pages so that those wonderful Doodlebug colors would really pop.
And for all you doodlepop fans out there, I included the Santa's Helpers doodlepop and Hot Cocoa doodlepop on the outside and inside front covers .... love love love these!!
This fun flip-up page shows off the 12x12 and 6x6 pattern papers.  (Note to self: get more of that red heart paper ❤️)!

Santa's other little doodlepop helper is showing off some cute odds & ends on this page, and I love the "together" piece from the chit chat. 

Thanks for letting me share a peek into my album. If you'd like to purchase the DIY kit to make this mini yourself, please visit my brand new shop at !

Enjoy the magic everyone!

Halloween Mini Album Gift with Doodlebug Designs

Can it really be the end of October?  Cooler temps, candy shopping, and halloween costumes?  Already?  Where did the year go?  Well, I'm glad I have Candy Carnival to help me get ready for the fast approaching end of the month festivities!  I've done several mini albums with this fun collection and this one will be a gift!

I think mini albums are a wonderful gift since some families don't have time, or desire, to create photo keepsakes for themselves.  They want to save the memories, but maybe they aren't paper-crafters, hate the smell of adhesive (ha ha) or have never heard of Doodlebug Designs (gasp!).  We need to help!

Give mini albums as gifts!  The recipients will love such a fun and unique way to save their memories!  For this one, I used several of the 4x6 journaling cards to add lots of fun spaces for notes.  I also added stickers from the This & That sticker sheet on the tabs for a cute pop of color down the right edge.

I love how the star sprinkles give the pages extra shine and color!

I just can't get over the Odds & Ends in this collection ... cutest costume kids ever!  I hope I've inspired you to make some mini albums for gifts.  Trust me, the recipient will be amazed with your creative and thoughful gift!
