We R Memory Keepers Blog Hop

Welcome to Artsy Albums and your first stop on We R Memory Keeper's National Scrapbook Week Blog Hop!  If you're starting here, be sure to head over to We R Memory Keepers to get all the details!  They'll be giving away a Flower Punch Board to one lucky person, so you'll want to make sure you finish up at their site!

...and I have a giveaway here at Artsy Albums too! 
I'll be giving a happy bag of We R Memory Keeper goodies to one lucky person, but first...a bit of traveling inspiration for you!


For my project, I created a mini album using a new line from We R called Jet Set.  I just love the fun colors in this collection...so bright and happy!


If you know me, or have ever visited my site, you know that mini albums are my favorite project.  I love to use the 3x4 and 4x6 'Albums Made Easy' cards throughout my books -- they are perfect for accent pieces and journaling spots!  


I also use the 6x6 paper pads in conjunction with the 12x12 sheets...I love the smaller print on the 6x6 papers to use for things like photo mats or pockets.



A touch of metallic copper really makes the chipboard alpha stickers that go with this collection pop ... love love love!

I promised a goodie bag to one lucky visitor today!  Enter to win below.   
The winner will be announced on Facebook and here on the blog on Thursday, 5/1:


Now back to the hop...

Graphic 45 Good 'Ol Sport 8x8 Album

I recently had the opportunity to create a wonderful album for a client's dad for Father's Day.  Her father is a sports fan so the new Graphic 45 Collection called Good 'Ol Sport was perfect for this gift....masculine, vintage, great colors, and perfect when paired with a kraft chipboard album.

I wanted to share some of the album photos with you today and hopefully inspire you to save some memories of your dad for yourself, or create a wonderful keepsake for him as a gift.  Not a scrapbooker?  Contact me....I'll be happy to make one for you!

We R Memory Keepers Punches

Hi friends,
Today I want to share a little something different with you...some fun gift box ideas using We R Memory Keepers punches.  Being part of the We R Design Team has been tons of fun...not only because I have the opportunity to play with all of their awesome paper lines, but also because they have some of my fave tools to make my designing and crafting life easier.

If you've never played with We R Memory Keeper's 2-Edge and Mini 8 Punches, I would encourage you to try them out....check out the fun projects I designed for a We R Memory Keepers/Hobby Lobby project idea promo...


For these adorable gifts boxes, I used Paper Studio paper from Hobby Lobby and the doily edge and mini 8 punches from We R Memory Keepers.


As you can see...with the 2-edge punches, you can punch one side to make a border...or 2 sides to create a ribbon-like effect.


I have two styles of these punches, but have all of them on my wish list.....love love love!!
Thanks for stopping by today!  Please leave me a comment and tell me about the fun projects you've created with We R Memory Keepers punches!

I'm so excited to share three new kits with you this week!  And stay tuned...because we have lots of new kits coming out in the next month!!

First, the Easter Bunny has visited Artsy Albums early this year and hopped right onto the cover of a new mini album...cotton tail and all!


This bright, colorful mini album will be perfect for saving memories of egg hunts, chocolate bunnies, baskets, and family gatherings. There are 12 (6 front & back) heavy chipboard pages in this album, including a fold-out page and a pocket page for even more photo or journaling space. 

Prefer 12x12 page layouts?  Then you'll have your spring photos scrapbooked in no time with this 6-page layout kit!


May is right around the corner and what better way to show Mom you love her than with an album full of memories!  Mother's Day is Sunday, May 11...purchase this beautiful album (kit or pre made) and make Mom feel extra loved on her special day!


Rich, vibrant colors, beautiful paper and embellishments, tags, fold out pages, pockets, envelopes -- these are just a few of the things that adorn the 20 pages of this beautiful album.
