Let It Snow Winter Scrapbook Album

It's Funday Friday and that means it's time for a NEW kit! I'm excited to share this very whimsical winter album with you today titled "Let It Snow". I discovered a new PhotoPlay collection called Snow Day and I couldn't pass it up! With it's happy colors, snowmen, penguins, and super playful prints ... it just HAD to be made into an album. It's adorable and perfect for the season's memories.

I designed this with a white acrylic 4.5" x 6.5" album that I created. It has space for 28 photos, so it's the perfect size for vacation pictures, skiing, playing in the snow, building a snowman, or making snow angels.

Isn't the cover cute? I love this pink paper with all the circles. I added the scalloped snowman and some extra snowflakes for a little more dimension, then a beautiful blue sweater print in the background.

More scalloped circles act as tabs on some of the inside pages. They peek out half way to show off their cute patterned papers. I love that they mimmick the cover and have a purpose!

This scrapbook has 16 pages that include 2 fold-out pages, 2 pockets, and 6 fantastic lil flippies. Lots of fun interactive elements.

I used a pretty blue twine on some of the tags in this pocket. I love little details ... I think it makes an album just a little more special.

You Color My World Acrylic Mini with Doodlebug

Hey everyone! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's a new mini album titled You Color My World and I'm adding the instructions for it to my shop tomorrow! Yay!!

This 4.5 x 7.5" scrapbook is perfect for Valentine's Day and would make a super sweet handmade gift. It's also a wonderful place to save your own photos of loved ones, your sweetheart, the littles, friends, a beloved pet, or anyone that's special to you. 💖

Lots of Love Valentine's Day Acrylic Mini Album with Doodlebug

To create this, I used the adorable Lots of Love Collection and one of my clear Acrylic Scallop Edge Albums, available now in my shop. You could use card stock for the covers instead. 

On the front, I used a 3.5" scallop circle punch and a 3" circle punch to make the shape in the center. Then, I added pieces from the Odds & Ends and some enamel shape sprinkles. Love those little shiny stickers!!

Underneath the acrylic cover, I added more shape sprinkles and the title piece from Chit Chat. The strip of tiny flowers is from the 6x6 print called Sprinkled With Love and the rainbows are from the same 12x12 print.

This album has 12 white card stock pages (6 double-sided) and I covered each one of them with a pretty 12x12 pattern paper. I also added 4 flippies (like the "Hello Love Bug" one above), 2 fold-out pages, 1 pocket page (see below), and 1 smaller pocket for tags. So many goodies!

Valentine's Day Scrapbook Album Page with rainbows, mailbox, & bird

The pink pocket above is perfect for journaling, small love notes, movie tickets, a postcard, a brochure, a hotel room key, or a candy wrapper from your favorite sweet treat.

I love the little tag and twine that stick out the top of the album and those 2 little pieces of mail. Such cute details! I also added some colorful petite prints throughout like the dot & stripe, woodgrain, and the linen. These prints are a must-have for me. I use them in everything!

Valentine's Day Scrapbook Album Page with pocket, tags, and hearts

I made a cute polka dot pocket to hold a few tags. You can add a little photo to the front, then add dates, locations, names or make notes on the back side of the tags.

If you'd like to recreate this scrapbook, the Instructions will be available in my shop tomorrow. The Acrylic Scallop Edge Album is available now (link below). I hope you have fun with this project and the beautiful Lots of Love Collection. Have a great day!

Winter Wonderland 12x12 Page Layout

Happy Wednesday friends! I had some time to play yesterday.  

Don't you love those days?  When you can sneak in a bit of time, in the middle of the chaos, to just do what you love to do?  I made myself take a break.  I just wanted to create something.  Something smaller than an album, but not as small as a card, and this is what I came up with.  

12x12 Winter Wonderland Scrapbook Page Layout

Something about pattern paper calms me (and straight lines, LOL).  So creating this layout was very relaxing.  As I was cutting the 1/2" strips, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do, but it came together and I love the result.  

12x12 Winter Wonderland Scrapbook Page with flowers & snowflakes

Full disclosure ... I'm not really good at perfectly lined up corners, so most of the strips were a bit wonky.  But as I always say, there should be no stress with paper and glue. So, I came up with a solution to cut thin 1/4" strips of white paper to cover my mismatched corners, added a bit of sparkle with gems, and all was good!  

Below is a picture before I added the white strips and pretty rows of gems :). Yikes!

I got a little over zealous with the gems and added them to my flowers too.  Hey, it's all good!  A girl needs a little bling in her life!

This little girl.  Oh how she has my heart.  Standing in the middle of a rare Georgia snowfall, with her Anna boots and "Frozen" dress, singing "Let It Go"!  So when my page corners didn't match up perfectly, I decided to let it go!!!  Doing so led me to a result that I like even more.  

So, let it go my friends! Slap the paper down, enjoy the process, and have FUN with it!

Birthday Invitation for Movie & Popcorn

Hello sweet friends and happy Monday! Today, I'm hopping on the blog to share a fun project that was inspired by National Popcorn Day. It's a cute invitation that would be perfect for a movie themed birthday party, whether it's at home or ... at your local movie theater!

Handmade Birthday Party Invitation for Movie & Popcorn

To make this, I printed out the text in Canva, a free online platform where you can create graphics. I backed the card with 4.25 x 5.5 (A2 size) card stock using some patterned papers from Doodlebug's Fun at the Park 6x6 paper pad.

The cute popcorn bucket is from the Fun At The Park Odds & Ends and the little popcorn pieces are icon stickers. I love their tiny faces! The soda bottle is a Doodle-pops from the Bar-b-cute collection called Foodie Friends

Handmade Birthday Party Invitation for a Movie & Popcorn

So, for the next movie themed birthday party that comes up ... I gotcha covered for the invite. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
