It's An Echo Park "Love Story"

What's not to LOVE??

When it comes to creating mini album kits, there is nothing I don't love about Echo Park's papers and embellishments!  I decided to go with one Valentine's line this season and Echo Park won my vote!  Check out this brand new mini album kit available in the shop now!








To purchase this mini album kit, or any kit from Artsy Albums, visit the "Kit Collection" tab or go directly to the shop at Artsy Albums.

Recycled Nemo Game Turned Mini Album

Sometimes my clients contact me to do some of the funnest projects!  This one was so much fun that I wanted to share it with all of my Artsy Albums friends!

A very sweet client of mine sent me a Disney "Finding Nemo" board game recently.  She asked me to turn it into a travel album as a gift for someone who's nickname is Nemo :)  How fun is that?!

So here's what I came up with:

The Original Game Board and Box

I covered a 6x6 Bo Bunny chipboard album with pieces of the box top and added a small strip of paper to the bottom to cover up some words that did not fit our theme.

My client wanted 5 tabs in this travel journal so I cut apart the heavy chipboard game board and used this to create the divider pages.  Then I used the little game "cards" as the tabs.



Finally, I finished off the back cover of the album with a piece of the bottom of the game box.
This project has really inspired me to make more recycled mini albums out of 
games or other found objects.  

Have you ever repurposed an older object into a mini album or craft project?  I'd love to hear about it!

Winter Mini Album with We R Memory Keepers

Good Friday morning friends!

I woke up to 27 degree weather here in Georgia today -- for a southern girl like me, that's a bit chilly!  Still, I don't mind a few months of cold mornings and frosty dew on the ground and my family always looks forward to the rare snow days that occur once or twice each winter.

I was excited to receive some wintery scrapbook goodies in the mail recently after being asked by We R Memory Keepers to be a guest designer this month.  The paper collection is very fun with the adorable snowmen and the colors remind me of frost and ice -- love it!!

So today I am sharing the mini album project that I created for We R -- enjoy!
