This album includes an updated "Class of 2024" acrylic title so you can create a wonderful keepsake for your graduate's photos. I've also added the instructions for my 12x12 Graduation Layouts. These fun pages make a great addition to any album. 

And last but not least, I've added this little cutie!! It's my NEW suitcase shaped mini album titled Vacation and it's perfect for all kinds of amazing travel memories.

This adorable little album is 7x5 inches and includes 2 covers made of 1/8" thick black acrylic. I used a Doodlebug cutting file to create the fun shape and added the acrylic "Vacation" title designed by Sarah Bailey.

I decorated it with papers from several Bella Blvd collections that include One Fall Day, Tiny Tots 2.0, and Bella Besties. I also used a few Doodlebug, Down On The Farm prints. And the embellishments ... they're Bella Blvd's Time To Travel Ephemera. I love mixing and matching!

Did you see the clear acrylic luggage tag charm I added? You could back this with a pretty patterned paper or leave it as it. Either way, it's super cute and I love the little detail.

Inside, there are 12 pages that include 2 fold-out pages, 1 pocket page, 5 flippies (see one above), and space for 30 of your favorite vacation photos. 

Summer is just around the corner and I hope everyone has a fun trip planned with friends or family. It's always nice to have travel plans to look forward to. We all deserve that every now and then.

Cruise Mini Album & Altoids Tin - May Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello my friends! Today is Lori Whitlock's May Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site too because she has a sale and more great products for you!

For my project today, I made a micro sized, accordion style mini album that fits inside a 3.75" x 2.25" Altoids tin. It's so cute and such a fun little project. I made one a few years ago with a Birthday Dragon theme. I loved it so much that I thought it was time for a new version. Take a look ...

Cruise Mini Album & Altoids Tin made with a Lori Whitlock cut file

I created this with Lori's awesome cutting file called Altered Altoids Tin with Mini Album (link below). I also used the Echo Park Magical Voyage Collection and gave it a cruise vacation theme. However, you could use ANY paper collection to customize it for your needs. 

I have so many ideas for this little cutie! 

⭐ Give this to someone as a creative way of telling them you're taking them on a cruise. Add tickets, clues, or notes. 

This would make a great gift idea filled with gift cards, small photos, pins, jewelry, candy, etc.

⭐ Use these as table gifts or name cards for a cruise dinner. Each person could add their own photos to the mini album to remember the event.

⭐ It would also make a fun little treat for a child during a cruise.

Here's how I made it ... For the sweet little tin, I covered the exterior with
the 12x12 Sail Away Stripes paper and embellished with some puffy and cardstock stickers from the 12x12 sheet.

Inside, I added more fun embellishments and the adorable little scrapbook album. It fits perfectly with rounded corners.

Cruise Mini Album & Altoids Tin with tags

I used 6x6 papers for the mini and I'm loving the way the smaller sized prints look on it. It has 5 little pocket pages, 5 tags, and space for 15 photos. I also added some die cut pieces to the pockets for fun!

NEW! School Bus Shaped Mini Album

Happy Friday everyone! The school year is coming to an end soon, so ... I think it's the perfect time to introduce a new school album! Sound backwards? Maybe, but it's actually great timing. Most of us have lots of school photos from this past year stored in our phones. With summer ahead, it's a terrific time to finally print them off and give them a cute home. So ... say hello to my little School Bus Shaped Scrapbook Album. 

School bus shaped scrapbook album by Artsy Albums

I designed this with a white acrylic bus shaped album that I custom cut for this kit. The covers measure approx. 9.5 x 5 inches. It's fun and chunky and so, so cute!

I also used the Echo Park, Off To School Collection that's filled with owls, stars, apples, books, and
lots of colorful school supplies.

Inside there are 24 pages that include 2 pockets, 9 flippies, and space for over 42+ pictures of your child's fun school memories. The page above has 1 of those flippies with a great journaling spot on the front. It's perfect for documenting your child's age, grade, teacher, the year, and name of the school.

Check out this fun layout ... it's a folding page with a flippie inside! The smarty pants cards folds out to the right and

Add photos of their first day, the bus, favorite teacher(s), fun pics with best friends, the classroom, their locker or cubby, the school building, and their official school photo. Smile!

Don't forget their science fair project, school play, recitals, off-campus field trips, playground fun, lunch time, awards they've won, art projects, holiday class parties, the different sports activities, band, graduation, and ... the last day of school.

I've added lots of fun journaling cards to both pockets. You can use these to document all kinds of details about your child such as ... their best friends names, their favorite class, their grades, or ... their height and weight at the start and end of the year. You could also use the backside of these cards as photos mats.

This mini album would make a great gift idea for a teacher (or tutor!) for the end of the year, a holiday, teacher appreciation, or a thank you present.

Another great idea for the pockets is saving small memorabilia. Add report cards, awards or certificates, a party invitation, a program from a show or graduation, photos of their artwork, or a copy of their diploma.

I would say this mini gets an A+ for fun colors, cute school icons, fun interactive elements, and lots of great photo space packed into a little bus shaped scrapbook! Lol!

Jar Shaped Happy Healing Mini Album with Doodlebug

Hi guys! It's time for the next Doodlebug Design Team Project and this week we were asked to create something fun with the new Happy Healing Collection. So, I pulled out one of my acrylic jar shaped albums and filled it with tons of little happy pills. Lol! It's titled Mugs, Hugs, and Effective Drugs and it's a cheerful place to save photos of just about any medical condition you'd like to remember.

This fun little project is so easy to recreate with my clear Acrylic Jar Shaped Mini Album! It's available in my shop and includes two 5x8 inch clear covers, 4 white cardstock pages, 2 page templates for cutting patterned paper, and 1 binding ring. But you also create the covers yourself with white cardstock or chipboard.

A few weeks ago, I shared another scrapbook made with the Happy Healing collection titled Laughter Is The Best Medicine. In that blog post, I listed lots of photo ideas and ... people that would love the medical theme of these albums. To visit that post, click here.

Inside, there are 8 white cardstock that include 2 flippies and space for 18 photos. I layered each page with pretty 12x12 papers and made photo mats with the smaller 6x6 prints.

Once that was complete ... it was time to embellish!! I added lots of cute die cuts from the Odds & Ends and Chit Chat and stickers from the This & That. On the blue page above, I also included a fun little journaling spot for names, dates, and notes.

Don't you think this would make a fun (and unique!) handmade gift for a nurse, doctor, pharmacist, an EMT, or anyone in the medical field? They could add pictures with their friends, on the job, or everyday photos.
