Trick or Treat Mini Album with Doodlebug

Hi guys! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project which ... is also this week's NEW kit! It's an adorable Halloween mini album titled Trick or Treat and it'll be available in my shop tomorrow (Friday). This might be one of my favorites - I had so much fun creating it! It's perfect for photos of October, pumpkins, carnivals, parties, and Halloween night. 🎃

Trick or Treat Halloween Mini Scrapbook Album by Artsy Albums

I designed this with Doodlebug's newest collection called Sweet and Spooky and I'm SO in love with everything about it! The pastel colors are such a fun surprise for a holiday that typically has a darker theme. I'm loving the pink and lavender and the little Halloween characters. They're so cute!

The album is one of my 4.5 x 6.5 inch Tall Acrylic Albums in black, but ... I replaced the front cover with a piece of Doodlebug's Stardust acetate. It's covered in tiny pastel stars and dots. I think it's fa-boo-lous!

Inside, there are 16 pages that include 2 pockets, 2 folding pages, and 4 flippies. Above is one of the folding pages and I'm loving the stripes with the candy jars! And that cute purple haunted house card is a flippie with space for 2 photos inside.

How cute are these ghosts with the bows on their heads?! Lol, I love them! I made this into a little square page with space on the back for a photo or journaling. And just behind that is a transparent page I made with more of that pretty star-filled acetate!

No Artsy Albums scrapbook would be complete without a pocket so, here's one of the two that are in this mini. I filled it with die cuts that are perfect for journaling, photos, or memorabilia.

These pages are perfect for photos of a visit to the pumpkin patch, making holiday treats, a school party or costume parade, a fall festival, a hayride or a corn maze, carving pumpkins, a haunted house, a costume party, your spooky decorated home, trick or treating, and all the candy that was collected!

I added some fun die cut shapes that extend off the edge of the pages. You can use these as tabs to flip the pages, for journaling (add dates, names, locations, or events), or ... use them for photos!

I absolutely love the paper above with the candies, pumpkins, and stars. The pastel colors are beautiful and the little images are so FUN! Such a cute backdrop for those little trick or treaters.

I hope you love this mini as much as I do!! I think it'll be the cutest Halloween mini for your fun holiday photos. Doodlebug's Sweet and Spooky Collection is adorable and so much fun to craft with. This definitely has me looking forward to scrapping my Halloween pictures!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Don't forget ... this sweet Trick or Treat Album will be available in my shop tomorrow (Friday) as a DIY kit and premade. See you then!

Love You Lots Card - September Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello everyone! Today is Lori Whitlock's September 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 beautiful greeting card using one of Lori's creative cutting files titled A2 Card Theme Park Birthday. It's original design has a nod to Disney but you can easily change the papers and the sentiment and use this for ANY recipient / occasion like a holiday, a baby, a man, etc. So versatile!

Love You Lots Birthday Card made with a Lori Whitlock cutting file

I made the card using white card stock, 6x6 pattern paper from Echo Park's Life is Beautiful Collection (also designed by Lori), and a dark blue/pink solid 12x12 sheet from the same collection (links below).

I popped up the heart and the white panel for dimension and added a pretty coral twine around the top.
