Happy Tuesday friends! I'm so excited to be sharing a new mini album with you today! Last year I created a similar Halloween house album for my Artsy Albums kit shop, and I was looking forward to doing another one this year. Doodlebug Designs's new Boos & Brews is perfect for this project with it's colorful patterns and so many cute embellishments!
I designed the album on paper and cut it out of heavy black chipboard. Then I layered the pieces with pattern papers from the 6x6 paper pad and 12x12 sheets. That swirly paper on the roof is one of my favorites!! It makes it look like magic is swirling out of the house. And that little scientist! I added eyeball sprinkles to make him look just a little more wacky.
This cute page was made from a 6x6 sheet ... I used it to create the front of a fold out card that will have photo mats tucked inside.
How cute is this little one-eyed green guy!? I combined him with a green drippy border punch and added a green splat from the odds & ends to complete the page. He also got an eyeball sprinkle -- love those!
These adorable frames are from the odds & ends and the stickers are from the icon and This N That sheets. I just love that little ghost!
Good morning Artsy Albums friends! After a weekend of moving our home, and my studio, to a temporary space, I think I finally have things organized enough to start creating again. At least until our new home is finished and we move all over again in a few months ... ugh! Packing/unpacking -- so not fun. But what IS fun is a series of new pre-made mini albums that I'll be introducing in the shop over the next few days. I'll make some in multiples, and some will be one-of-a-kind. You'll have your photos scrapbooked in no time when you tuck them into these pre-made albums ... and remember, they make perfect gifts for showers, birthdays, and other special occasions! The first mini I've added to the shop this week is a re-stock of an album I get asked about often. It's the perfect album for a newly engaged bride-to-be!
Visit the shop today to purchase our Engagement Mini, and stop by each day this week for more additions to our pre-made series!
Hi everyone! I'm kicking off two weeks of fun "kid friendly" projects over on the Doodlebug Designs blog today. The design team has been working on projects to do with your children or grandchildren. I created a fun, memory card game.
Do you remember playing "Concentration" as a kid? It was one of my favorite card games, so I decided to make a memory card set and a cute 3x4 card box to hold the cards. The box is a .svg cutting file designed by Lori Whitlock especially for this project, and can be purchased on her website here.
I cut white card stock into 26, 3" x 4" cards and then I added the 2.75"x3.75" aqua dot (puppy love) paper to the front of the cards so that they all matched.
Now for the fun part! I covered the back of the cards with different colorful papers from the Puppy Love, Kitten Smitten, and Fun in the Sun collections and then added stickers and die cuts. I made two of each design so that there are 13 matching pairs. Have your little ones help you with all of the stickers, and then teach them how to play!
Lay all of the cards out on a table, face down in rows to create a large rectangle.
The first player turns over 2 cards to see if they match. If the two cards match, the player keeps the pair and takes another turn.
If the cards do not match, the cards are turned back over in the same spot. Everyone should try to remember the pictures on the cards, and where they are located.
Now it's the next player's turn and he or she turns over two cards to see if they match.
Play continues like this until all pairs have been picked up. The winner is the person with the most matching pairs.
Have fun designing your cards! With all of the wonderful Doodlebug stickers and die cuts, the possibilities for this project are endless!!
Hi everyone! Today I'm hanging out with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team for our August blog hop! If you just stopped by, be sure to start the hop atLori's siteso that you don't miss any of the fun projects the team has to share with you!
I LOVE all of Lori's wonderful cards, and she has a whole new set of fun pop up cards. Wouldn't a bride adore this?

For the cover, "The Story" title is included in the mini album set. I added it to a label that I cut from the Perfect Labels Thinlits set and then layered all of those pretty flowers with a cute brad.
I love how Lori provided the base album page in this set, along with a layered piece for pattern paper. The film strip frames are also included in the set ... so cute!! All of the pieces were cut from paper designed by Lori for Echo Park called Pinstripes.
I hope this mini has inspired you to go check out these sets, and all of the other fun dies and stamps that Lori has designed for Sizzix!
