Doggie Layout with Doodlebug Designs

I decided to change it up for my post today with a page layout about my granddaughter and this adorable pup, Bella.   Rylee has always loved animals, so when my sister brought her poodle to visit I knew Rylee would be excited.   
When I saw these photos, I couldn't wait to document this new friendship.  I wanted the background to be blue to match Rylee's beautiful eyes, but I also wanted to create a little more detail around the edge.

I started with a sheet of 12x12 white card stock and adhered some scraps from my So Punny collection around the edge of the white base.  I cut a sheet of "I'm Daisy for You" paper to 11.5"x11.5" and adhered it to the center of the base page, then built all of my photos and embellishments on top of that.
Some of the cute die cuts are from So Punny, and others are from the Puppy Love collection.
I use the tiny heart sprinkles on just about everything I create.  They are perfect for a sweet, tiny pop of color.  

Thanks for stopping by today everyone!  I hope I've inspired you with this fun, colorful layout.  Happy scrapping!

Good Vibes Album with Simple Stories

Hi crafty friends!  It's Traci, back to share my latest Sn@p album using the fantastic Good Vibes collection.  I've been looking for a fun, colorful, perfect for everyday photos, kind of collection to use for a new family album.  This one is perfect!

Although I use 12x12 papers in most of my albums, I always get the 6x8 paper pads too.  I love them for the smaller print, and for the phrase and title pages like the one above.

I was so happy that the bright teal, pink, and yellow looked so good with my photos!  I can't turn the pages of this album without smiling and feeling happy.




I used lots of embellishments throughout this album, including stickers, chipboard accents, and bits & pieces die cuts.  Isn't that little polish bottle adorable??
Like the cute die cut says, "choose happy"!  And until my next post, I'm wishing you "good vibes, everyday, all day long".  Thanks for stopping by!

Welcome to the Farm Tabbed Mini Album

Sometimes there's a collection that you just can't get enough of ... that's so fun to play with you look for excuses to take pictures.  Down on the Farm is one of those collections for me.  I didn't grow up on a farm, and I don't live on one now, but everything about the patterns, embellishments, and cute little farm animals just make me happy.  So, here's mini #3 using Down on the Farm...

I used the farmer boy for my cover, but the girl farmer looks just as cute!
I covered a chipboard album from my stash with 12x12 pattern papers from the collection.
I designed the tab labels myself using my Silhouette software.  I found a wood sign file that I liked and then cut it up and altered it to add words for the welcome sign and tabs. (Links to cut files: wood sign and font).
Those Odds and Ends die cuts!!  So much cuteness!
I can't wait to take my granddaughter to a farm or a petting zoo so that I have cute pictures to fill up this darling mini.  If you want to make one, visit my SHOP at Artsy Albums to get all of the DIY kit details.  Hope you are all having a wonderful, crafty summer!

July 4th Mini Album with Doodlebug Designs

Can you believe it's already July?! This year has flown by for me, but I'm really looking forward to the 4th, and celebrating Independence Day!  I've got my mini album ready to fill with pictures of our family BBQ, a local parade, and lots of fireworks.  
I used Doodlebug's Yankee Doodle and Patriotic Picnic collections for this mini, and mixed in lots of wonderful petite prints.  The print on the cover is blue jean Daily Doodles card stock.  
One of my favorite things about Doodlebug is that everything matches so it's very easy to mix and match collections, embellishments, and petite prints!
The silver foil on the Yankee Doodle die cuts is hard to see in photos, but trust me ... it's so pretty!!  Perfect for celebration projects.
Isn't this pocket cute?  I cut it out of the red bandana cardstock from Down on the Farm, but it works great in my July 4th book!

My favorite washi tape of all time might be ant parade .... so cute!!
I hope I've given you a little red, white, and blue inspiration today!  
Have a wonderful 4th everyone!
