Doodlebug Kitten Smitten Mini Album

For today's project, I pulled out the adorable Kitten Smitten collection to make a little album for my son's girlfriend. She just adopted a 3-week old kitten and named him Eliot. I'm pretty sure she's going to be taking lots of adorable pictures of this little fluff ball.

I used an acrylic cover (from Clear Scraps) and white card stock pages for the base of the album.  

I used the 4x4 and 4x6 cards on some fold-out pages, and scattered die-cuts throughout the album for some cute embellishment.

I love how Doodlebug always uses the "puuurrr-fect" color combinations. The black and grey is so cute with the other pastels.

Before I go, I thought you might like to see the little guy that inspired this album.
Thanks everyone!  Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

July 4th Scrapbook Album Kit

School's out here in Georgia, the heat has kicked in, and the pools are open! Before we know it, we'll be planning for July 4th fireworks so here's a little red, white, and blue inspiration for you!
For this mini album, I used the Yankee Doodle collection and lots of petite prints. I combined 6x8 pages, pockets, and fold-out elements in a binder from Simple Stories. And yes!, this album is available as a do-it-yourself kit in my Etsy shop at Artsy Albums.

The patterns and die cut odds & ends pieces for this collection are perfect for lots of activities ... fireworks, BBQs, parades, family fun, and anything red, white, and blue!

The tab stickers above, and several of the cute border stickers, are from the Stars and Stripes Fancy Frills sticker sheet.  I love how cute they look on the chipboard tabs of this binder!
The Odds & Ends package has lots of great acrylic pieces like the "America" above, and the "July 4th" on the cover. I hide clear glue dots behind these pieces to adhere them to my pages.

I don't want to rush my summer along too much, but I do always love the July 4th holiday. Stop by my shop if you're interested in making this album for yourself, and until next time, happy scrapping!!
