Recipe Page Layout, Digital Instructions

Hi friends! It's Throwback Thursday and thought I'd post a 12x12 page layout today that I love. The reason I love this one is because ... well, it's cute and I really like the happy colors but more importantly, it makes me think of my mom.

She cooked dinner every single night and while she didn't love cooking ... she did it and was really good at it. We had dinner as a family at the table, always. She baked desserts that were amazing and created traditions for my sister and me that we carry on to this day. We still have her handwritten 3x5 recipe cards, which mean the world to us.

I bet she never thought I'd be blogging about her handwritten recipe cards one day. But they are tucked safely in an archival scrapbook for future generations to come. This is why I scrap :)



To purchase the instructions to make this album visit:


These 6 pages will be a safe place for photos and recipes of your family's special moments in the kitchen. Baking cookies with loved ones, making homemade pasta, Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner or Sunday morning pancakes!

These pages were originally designed with paper and embellishments from the Echo Park, Happiness is Homemade Collection and there are still a couple of these products available. (links below). I've also researched & added some other cute recipe, kitchen & homemade themed collections as well.


And ... if you're looking to make an entire album, I have the instructions for this Recipe Scrapbook Album in my shop also. So cute! Just click on the link below to see more pictures.

"Lil' Sailor" Boy Album, New Digital Instructions

Hey guys! I have a fun little retired boy album to share with you today and I just added the Digital Instructions to my shop. This 6x6 inch mini scrapbook is called Lil' Sailor and it's adorable!

This was originally designed with Doodlebug Design's Anchors Aweigh collection and some of these products are still available (yay!) so I've added the links below along with 2 other cute collections that can be easily be substituted. Or ... if you're like me, you could probably raid your own scrapbook stash & mix and match with leftovers. Love that idea!


To purchase the instructions to make this album visit:

This album would be perfect for a new baby, a first trip to the beach, an ocean themed birthday party, newborn nursery photos or everyday pictures of a sweet little boy.


For this first page, I used my die-cutting machine to create a folded porthole card. It opens so that you can tuck photos inside!  How cute is that little sea turtle?!


The cute blue crab card on the page below is another flip-up where you can store more photos. In total this album can hold 18 pictures of varying sizes so it's perfect to document a special day, weekend or event.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you enjoy making this fun scrapbook for your cute lil' sailor!

Below are links to Doodlebug's collection AND a few other really cute lines (Echo Park Under the Sea Collection and Photo Play's Fish Tales Collection) that can be substituted. Enjoy!

Life is A Picnic: A Mini Album with Doodlebug Designs

Summer, picnics and sunshine!  I hope everyone is enjoying this time of year and taking lots of fun, outdoor photos! If so, hopefully this little mini album will inspire you to save some of your summer memories with the new Bar-B-Cute collection!

For this album, I was inspired by the adorable picnic basket from the Odds & Ends. I knew all of the little die cuts would be so cute sticking out of the top!
I always like to see die cuts that will mirror each other, back to back, because it allows me adhere them over the edges of my albums, like the sun on the cover, and the one on page one.
This little pitcher of lemonade might be my favorite die cut in this set. So cute!  I may need to buy a glass pitcher and put a smiley face on it!

I'm so glad Doodlebug makes Odds & Ends and the icon stickers different sizes. I like to mix and match them, like the grill above and the cute little basket sticker.
Those little ant sprinkles are adorable ... they are the only ants that I want marching across my scrapbooks :)

If you want a summer album, but need a little more direction making it, I have a Summer Scrapbook Mini Album Kit using this exact same collection in my shop (link below). It has all the supplies and instructions and you have the fun part of simply assembling the album! Super easy.


Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today! Have a wonderful week and be sure to share your Bar-B-Cute projects with us @doodlebugdesigns and @artsyalbums!
