I "purse-onally" think this is super cute!

I am not a purse girl..or a shoe girl...or a "gotta have the latest" kinda girl.  I love my oldest, best fitting jeans and a good old white t-shirt (with a really cute premier necklace, of course).  Don't get me wrong, I do love to get dressed up once in a while, but day-to-day, give me denim and sneakers and I'm good to go.

So why I locked into this little album when I saw it, I have no idea.  I didn't even have an immediate vision, like I usually do, about how I would create with it.  But I bought it.  And it has been staring at me for 2 months.  So, I decided to take some paper, some embellishments, and this, ONLY this, adorable transparent purse album to a crop -- which means, of course, that I was now forced to do something with it. 

Oh my goodness!  What took me so long!  How fun is this?


And it's the next Artsy Albums kit! Yep, all the cute paper and embellishments from My Mind's Eye and this super cute Maya Road "purse" album with 8 pages tucked inside!  So, stay tuned.  Over the next few days, more pictures will be posted and the Mini Album Kit will be posted in my Etsy shop at www.artsyalbums.etsy.com.

A Winter Mini Sneak Peak at Artsy Albums!

It is a mild, but rainy, Atlanta morning, and I am watching the news about the snow storms up north.  Although too much snow is not easy, or safe, a little snow now and then is fun and reminds me of my middle school years in Chicago, waiting for the school bus, in my cheerleading uniform (back then we weren't allowed to wear sweats with our uniform skirts to keep warm) and the snow would be 3-4 feet high!  No boots were allowed either -- just my saddle shoes and bobby socks!  Ha!  I would freeze!

But living in Georgia where snow is rare, has me and my boys wishing for the occasional snow day.  We had a few last year, and we took lots of pictures!

I enjoyed creating a new mini album kit focused on winter days, the occasional snowman, and for those of you up north, the beautiful white blanket that covers the earth during this season.  Here is a sneak peek of the latest Artsy Album kit being added to the shop this weekend -- this kit includes a full 12x12 collection pack from Echo Park, called Winter Park, a 6x12 cascade chipboard album by Bo Bunny, and lots of fun ribbon and embellishments.  This peek shows a stamped snowman image that is included for paper piecing in the kit.  So cute!



If you are interested in creating this album yourself, you can purchase the kits (or the completed sample) in my Etsy shop here:  www.artsyalbums.etsy.com.  Look for their availability in the next few days.  I will have 5 kits available -- if you want to reserve one, email me at traci@artsyalbums.com.

Valentine Album -- A Wonderful Gift

A beautiful album ready for pictures or to be given as a gift.  This red, pink and white pre made scrapbook would be a great gift for her for Valentine's Day, or fill it with your own photos of you and that special person. Either way, this fun, heartfelt mini book will be cherished for years to come. Display it on your coffee table, a book shelf, or a bedside table. Give this pretty album instead of a card this year!

Green at Heart with Artsy

This sweet 6" x 6" album will hold over 23 pictures or journaling spots and be a treasured keepsake for years to come. The album was created with the "Green at Heart" collection from Basic Grey.  Have pictures of your daughter, granddaughter, twin girls, niece?  Or what about photos of your garden? This would make a wonderful gift but don't wait! This one is one-of-a-kind and will not be duplicated!

Album measures 6" x 6" and has 12 pages (6 front and back). There are lots of tags and pockets for extra photos or memorabilia and embellishments throughout.

To purchase this album or check out any other Artsy Albums in my shop, go to:  www.artsyalbums.etsy.com
As always, thank you so much for visiting my blog! My goal is to create scrapbooks, memory albums, and kits that encourage people to share their stories, preserve their photos, and document their everyday lives.







New Valentine mini album (pre made)

Lots going on at Artsy Albums these days!   For those of you who love to scrapbook and make mini albums, kits are being added to my Etsy shop all the time.  For those of you who prefer to add your photos to pre made albums, I am adding minis like the one shown below to my shop also!

Most of my pre made mini albums are one-of-a-kind.  I usually do not repeat my designs (except for kits or custom requests).  So if you "LOVE" this mini scrapbook album, you can purchase it HERE.

As always, thanks for stopping by my blog and for following me via email, Facebook, and Pinterest!
