Road Trip to Disney Layout

I guess most of us aren't doing much traveling these days, but I have plenty of travel photos from past trips that I haven't scrapbooked yet.  And now that we're at home more than usual, we can take advantage of some crafting time!  I had so much fun creating this layout using I❤️Travel.
I love all the adorable die cuts that came in the Odds & Ends, Tags, and Chit Chat.  It was really hard for me to choose which ones to use because they're all so cute! That little sunshine kills me!

Wow, so clearly I need my contacts adjusted!  I had no idea that my cute little swirly border from the This & That sticker sheet didn't get lined up correctly.  Oh well, handmade isn't suppose to be perfect right? :)
Isn't that tiny little camera adorable!? He is a shape sprinkle from "picture perfect", and those colorful suitcases are the "pack your bags" DoodlePop. 

I hope I've given you a little travel layout inspiration today!  Stay safe and healthy everyone!

Seaside Adventure Scrapbook Album Kit

Hello everyone!
I'm sure if you're like me, you're feeling cooped up and tired of being at home. I definitely find working on a fun project is a good distraction. So ... I have a nice distraction for you! I  added a new album to my shop on Friday and it's full of seaside cuteness. Take a look!

This a great album for saving all your nautical memories. Beach trip? Cruise? Weekend boating? I gotcha ... this album covers them all! It is 6"x 8.5" and it's available as a DIY kit or pre-assembled.

I love the cute sayings and pretty colors throughout this scrapbook. "Seas the Day". Great idea. This might be a good time to do just that. While we're home, we have an opportunity to enjoy good ol' quality family time. Time to go through photos & enjoy looking back on some fun vacations. It's a great time to put together a scrapbook with your kids, too!

This Seaside Adventure album is packed with so many adorable embellishments like stickers, journaling cards, twine, a brad and some enamel dots! And who doesn't love being crafty with stickers, embellishments and glue!

Do you have some beach trip photos sitting on your computer? Well, time to get them printed. This would be a perfect place for them. Or maybe a trip to the Aquarium? I definitely have pics of my boys next to the otter tank. They are so fun to watch!

This album has 16 pages, including fold-out pages and pockets for more space. And... it holds at least 30 photos of varying sizes so even though it's small, it packs a lot of punch ... or photos, lol!!

Check out this new cutie and many more handmade albums in my shop today. Thank you so much for stopping by and supporting small businesses.

Family Fun Folio with Bella Blvd

Happy Spring everyone!  Despite the uncertain world we are living in these days, I'm hoping most of you are able to see/talk with family, and able to get outside in the fresh air, even for just a little bit.  The pollen on my car is always my sign to beware of itchy eyes and stuffy allergies, but I love the sunshine and being outside with my family.  If you are unable to be with those you love, or the weather is still a bit gloomy where you are, I hope my bright, cheerful project cheers you up a bit today!

This cute little 'family folio' is full of adorable Squeeze the Day and Bella Besties product.  Am I the only one who is SO excited that Bella created Besties??  I always have these adorable solids on hand because they go with every Bella collection ... #makesmylifeeasier !  Love them!

I LOVE pink! Pinks and reds have always been my favorite colors (my poor bridesmaids had to wear bright "cranberry" in my wedding).  So that Punch paper above, and that adorable little strawberry make me so happy!

For this page, I decided to leave the pocket white so you could really see the cute little fruit die cuts.  
And for this page, adding a layered tag into the pocket really draws your eye to the cute chipboard scallop border.  Anyone determined to make lemonade out of lemons these days??  Me !!!!

How pretty are all of these Bella colors!!?  This is why I love mini albums .... so much color, interaction, and adorable product :). See those precious "Pearfect" Bella Pops?  Yep, I'm hoarding those.

So this little folio had lots of pockets and pull-outs and fun stuff that was hard to show in a few photos.  If I get some time (LOL) in the next couple days, I'd like to post a video flip-through over on my You Tube channel at Artsy Albums.   Until then Bella friends, stay healthy and try to get out in the sunshine!

Spring Mini Album for a Friend

I love making handmade gifts that come together quickly and are fun to put together. Today, I'm sharing a sweet mini album that I created for a friend.  Let's see how many Doodlebug collections I used in this little book!
For the cover, I used the adorable gingham check paper and bird die cut from Simply Spring. The "Friend" title and heart banner are from the Hello collection, and the sun die cut came from the I💗Travel line. 
How cute is that little butterfly?  He was part of the Spring Things Odds & Ends. I think that's 4 collections so far!  
Ready?  That precious yellow heart paper is from So Punny, and what project would be complete without some floral Petite Prints!  We're up to 6!

The cute little "Hello Lady" card and "Bloomin' Bugs" paper were also from the Simply Spring line.
See the floral paper on the pocket?  That one's from Bunnyville!
And finally, the jellybean plaid above is from Hoppy Easter! I used 8 different collections in this little mini!  That's one of my favorite things about Doodlebug ... my older collections will always match the new ones.  Well, that and sprinkles, of course!

If you'd like to make this cute little album, I'll have a few kits available for purchase in my Artsy Albums shop today.  Thanks for letting me share it with you!  I hope I've inspired you to use all of your Doodlebug collections together!
