Back to School Album with Doodlebug Designs

Hi everyone!  I have a fun new album kit to share with you today!  

Doodlebug's new School Day collection could not be cuter and I am loving all the fun details throughout our newest kit!  The 6x8 album has 12 double-sided scrapbook pages including 3 tabbed chipboard pages, 2 fold-out pages, and 2 pockets.  There are also 10  divided photo sleeves for more space and tons of darling embellishments! 

There is a page for the 1st day of school, and lots of die-cuts to document kindergarten thru 6th grade. 
You'll have plenty of spots for recording teacher and friend names, favorite classes, and school day memories.  There are also pockets to tuck in art work, report cards, and other memorabilia.
Does your student love science?  Music, Art, or Band?  It's all included in the pages of this completely adorable keepsake.  Plus, you'll have so many embellishments, you can make it your own by substituting one cute piece for another!


So now that the kids are back in school, grab your adhesive and have some fun with our newest album kit!  Get all the details in our online shop here:  www.artsyalbums.etsy.com

August Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock Designs

Hi friends!  Welcome to Lori Whitlock's August Blog Hop! My site is the first stop on the hop, so be sure to hop back over to Lori's site too, because she has a sale, a giveaway, and a cute freebie for you!




For my project I created an adorable pineapple shaped treat box.  On the front, I used a cute chipboard embellishment from Lori's Echo Park collection called "I Love Summer", and filled the box with some pineapple flavored candies.  It makes such a sweet gift for a friend, and I love the unique shape!  For the pattern papers, I used dot/stripe petite prints from Doodlebug ... perfect for a fun substitute to solid card stock.







I'm so glad you stopped by, and I hope you'll visit my Artsy Albums shop sometime!  I add new album and page kits every week so there is always something new!  There's lots more creative inspiration for you along the hop today so head over to the next stop at Kathy's blog!

Desk Note Box with Doodlebug Designs

Who doesn't want a pretty desk?  If we have to spend time there to work, pay bills, or even do some crafting, we all want a work space that's functional and inviting.  Today I have a project to share that might help brighten up your workspace a bit.
I discovered this fun box by Graphic 45 in my craft stash and decided to cover it with gorgeous papers from the Hello collection. I wanted something for my desk to hold notepaper, paperclips and sticky notes.  This will be functional and pretty!
For the outside of the box, I used 12x12 paper and a scallop border sticker to decorate around the edge.  For the top, a 3x4 card, odds & ends, and a cute typewriter doodle-pop add color and dimension.
I continued the papers and scallop sticker inside the box.
Finally, I had lots of left over icon stickers from the collection so I added them to some lined note paper, punched holes, and tied up the sheets with ribbon for a fun little notepad that fits perfectly into the box. A colorful pen and some jelly clips finished up my project.  

I have links to supplies I used on my website below.  Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer, but if you have to be inside at a desk, why not make it colorful and fun? Happy crafting!

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July!!  I hope everyone is enjoying this red, white, and blue holiday with lots of family and friends. Here's a fun little home decor project to inspire some crafty fun.
This is a Foundations Decor shadow box that I filled with papers and embellishments from the Doodlebug Yankee Doodle collection.  
The lily white chipboard alphas made a fun title at the top of my frame, and I love how the clear acetate pieces look like fireworks are exploding right off the frame.
I filled the die cut wagon with fireworks and a cute little mouse from the mini icon stickers. I love these tiny sizes!
The Odds n Ends are some of my favorite Doodlebug products for any collection, but the silver and acetate pieces in the Yankee Doodle line are so great! I hope this simple little project has inspired you to create something red, white, and blue today! Enjoy!
