New Mini Album using Echo Park's Paradise Beach!

Hello friends!

I hope everyone is enjoying this wonderful Memorial Day holiday!  I am thinking about our service men and women today and appreciate all the sacrifices given for my freedom.  I am thankful to live in such an amazing country.

I am also thankful for an upcoming trip to the beach.   My boys and I will spend a few days on the beach with some wonderful friends and I can't wait until my feet hit the sand!   Are you heading to the beach this year?   If so, check out this colorful mini album that will make a wonderful photo keepsake or gift.

This album is available pre-made, or you can make it yourself with an Artsy Albums kit.





As always, thank you for checking in with me and Artsy Albums!

Sand, Surf, and Memories! A Beach Vacation Album

Good evening friends,

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I did -- I enjoyed a full day of friends and scrapping time yesterday.  I have such a wonderful group of girlfriends that I get to scrap with -- even though I might be creating for Artsy Albums when I am with them, I never feel like I am working.  It is a day of relaxing fun, creativity, and silliness.

For some, days like this only come in the form of a vacation -- getting away from all of the headaches at work and the "should dos" at home.   For those of you that enjoy beach vacations -- me too!  So when I was with my scrappy friends yesterday, I created this fun, colorful mini album.  "Paradise Beach" is a brand new line from Echo Park (one of my favorites)!   Kits will be coming soon to the shop...so check back at www.artsyalbums.etsy.com next week ;)

Have a great week!

Masculine Album using Bo Bunny Weekend Market

Good morning friends

Today I wanted to share a custom album I made for a client recently.  It needed to be masculine and the Weekend Market line from Bo Bunny fit the bill perfectly.  I also love the new Simple Stories albums -- the brown canvas spine and 6x8 size were great for this project.  I was also able to add unique photo slip-in sleeves (also by Simple Stories) to this album so that the recipient could add additional photos.

Do you have an idea for a custom scrapbook?  Love to scrap but are short on ideas?  Check out my shop for inspiration, kits, and some great prices on scrapbook supplies.

National Scrapbook Day!

Good morning friends and happy National Scrapbook Day!!

I will be spending today in my studio creating some fun new albums for the shop...but while I am playing with paper and glue I want to hear how YOU are spending NSD?  Are you shopping?  Hanging out with the family?  Or are you attending one of the many scrapbook retreats going on across the country??

According to nationalscrapbookingday.com:

The first Saturday in May is National Scrapbooking Day!  May 5, 2012
National Scrapbook Day was started in 1994 by the well-known album company, Creative Memories and is celebrated on the first Saturday each May. Since 1994 scrapbookers all over the county celebrate their passion for Scrapbooking on this day!
There are even online groups petitioning the US Government to make National Scrapbook Day a federal holiday!
Artsy Albums is also celebrating NSD by giving away a free gift and 15% off!  Check out the details on our Facebook page.
So, how are YOU spending National Scrapbooking Day?  Leave a comment here because I just might be picking someone who comments to receive another Artsy Albums freebie :) 
Happy scrapping!

Boys, Boys, Boys

This has been the month for custom baby albums....and they've all been boys...maybe I should stay away from whatever is in the water.... :)

Today I want to share a cute little baby album that I just finished.  This one gets sent off to central Georgia for little Harper.   I have also added this as a listing in my shop because the paper line from Bella Blvd is so stinkin cute that I will be making more of this one.  Need a personalized gift?  So cute with those little monkeys!   

I will also be getting the girl version of this paper line too, so let me know if I can make one for you!
and by the way...if you are on Facebook, come visit Artsy Albums there too!  "Like" us to help me reach my next goal of 100 fans!
