Merry Mini with Simple Stories

Happy Thursday everyone!  It's Traci, back to share a new Simple Stories Sn@p album with you.  I love these 4x6 albums ... they are the perfect size for a fun and easy project or a unique gift for that person that has everything!

For this Christmas mini I used the Oh What Fun Simple Set.

I love the colors in this collection ... and that reindeer sticker cracks me up! 



I love the 2x2 pocket page for sweet little pictures of my granddaughter! 



See how easy?  A few cute photos, a couple sheets of paper and stickers (Simple Sets are perfect for this), and a 4x6 Sn@p album!  I'm doing these for gifts this year ... after all, who doesn't love pictures? 

Visit our online shop today to check out lots of great albums that will make wonderful gifts!

Washi Tape Challenge with Doodlebug Designs

Hi there!  It's Traci and I'm back to share my Washi Tape project with you!  I found these 8x8 frames on sale at my local craft store so I decided to create a few holiday decor pieces, and a gift for a friend. 
The frames came with double white mats.  I covered the larger outside mat, and left the one inside white.  I started with a corner, positioning the orange "Happy Halloween" tape first.  Then I added the rest of the tape by stretching it across the frame cut-out from one side to the other, trimming it, and folding it under each side.  I could have saved some tape by not going across the opening, but this helped me line everything up perfectly.

Here's the finished Halloween frame in my family room.  This was a super easy way to add a little pop of color to the plain space on my shelves.
I also made one for Christmas ... 

 ... and one for a friend.  She can take out the center piece and add a cute picture of her new puppy!
I hope you are enjoying this week's washi tape projects over on the Doodlebug blog!  Stop back by every day for new ideas on how to use this fun product.

Christmas Album Kit with Doodlebug Milk and Cookies

Hi everyone!  Traci here, back to share my latest album with you.  I  know I say this every time Doodlebug comes out with a new collection, but seriously ... this might be the cutest one ever!  Well, at least since Booville last month ... ha!



I had fun adding the Create A Card set throughout this album.  I used one of the cards and lots of cute Odds and Ends die cuts for the page shown above.  Flip the card up and a few pictures can be tucked inside (see below).

This brick pattern is one of my favorites.  I think I need to stock up on this sheet to use in future projects!
When I saw the 2x2 squares on the 12x12 flannel jammies sheet, I knew it would make a cute accent page in the album.  I cut out the squares and tucked them into a 2x2 pocket page.  I plan to add little pictures behind the squares that can be revealed like an advent calendar over the years.

This cute page from the 6x6 paper pad works as a darling flip up element to reveal another card from the card set...



This album is available as a DIY kit (or premade album) 
in my Artsy Albums shop.
