Candy Carnival Mini Album

Does anyone else out there hoard DoodlePops like I do?  There's just something about these adorable little layered embellies that makes me SO happy!  This is why is was actually really hard for me to use so many throughout my newest mini ... but I did it!  And I love how they look, especially on this bright cover.

I don't know which is my favorite ... the googly-eyed spiders or the little costume kids!  
I used 12x12 patterns for this mini and cut tickets out of the Candy Carnival sheet for the tabs.  They were a better size for the album tabs than the die cuts.
I also used icon stickers throughout the album.  I cut most of the star burst stickers in half so that I could use the other piece on another page in the album.
That cute little doodlepop bat is from the Edward doodlepop that I used on the front cover.
This is one of my all-time favorite halloween collections from Doodlebug because of the colors!  I love how bright and fun the pages of this mini are.

I hope I've inspired you to have fun with your DoodlePops ... or if you're like me, buy two so that you can use one and hoard one (wink)!  
Happy scrapping friends!

Doodlebug Halloween Mini

If you are anything like me, you are looking forward to fall and all that this season brings. I've already started decorating and can't wait for the cooler temperatures, colorful leaves and of course, Halloween! Halloween is a lot of fun for my family, especially since we have a 3 year old granddaughter who loves to dress up.  I'll have my camera ready on October 31st so I needed a cute album to put her pictures in!
This album was so much fun to create.  It's 6"x8" and full of interactive pages, but Candy Carnival is what makes it so cute!  
How adorable is Mr. Stretchy Pants? I was so excited he fit so well on this little folded page ... and then when you fold to the back of the page, these cute spiders are hanging around :) 

Cutest colors ever, am I right??  That purple pocket page is one of my favorites.  I can't wait to tuck photos and and stories inside. 

I know you are all going to love this collection as much as I do, so check in every day to see all the cute projects the team is is working on.  If you want to make this album for yourself, you can purchase the DIY kit in my online shop!  

Happy scrapping everyone!

Vacation Memories Mini Album

I have had so much fun playing with this travel collection this summer! I've created DIY album kits for a cruise, a road trip, and another vacation, but I needed a smaller album for a trip I have coming up so I'm adding another mini to our kit list!
This smaller 5x7 album is the perfect size for a shorter trip, or one where you don't plan to take tons of photos.  You'll be able to add at least 25 photos around these adorable embellishments.
This little camera just makes me smile!!

The paper and embellishments I used for this kit are from Doodlebug's new I Heart Travel collection and every single piece is adorable!!



There are folding pages and pockets for additional fun and extra space.
I'm not quite sure how many of these kits will be available.  Based on time and inventory, the supplies on this one may be limited so if you want to add this kit to your album collection, visit the shop today!

School Calendar with Doodlebug School Days

I have a new project to share with you today!  I created this cute school calendar for a friend.  She's a new teacher and this will be a fun addition to her classroom.  I used the adorable School Days collection by Doodlebug (see product list at the end of this post).


The base of the calendars are Daily doodles 12x12 card stock sheets, and the cute little pattern squares are from the 6x6 School Days paper pad.
I used the mini icon stickers because they are the perfect small size for the calendar squares ... play you get two sheets in a package so there are plenty of stickers for the entire school year.

Finally, I had fun adding some doodle stamps here and there on each page. I love the little art easel ... it'll be a cute place to make notes for that day.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I also have a mini album kit and 12x12 page kit in my Etsy shop that uses this same collection.  I'd love for you to check them out (links below)!
