Summer BBQ Scrapbook Album

Hello friends and happy Monday! Packing, moving and reorganizing my scrapbook room has made me realize that I have soooo many great products but not enough of everything to create kits out of it. So, I decided to make a premade OOAK (one of a kind) album with some of my leftover supplies from the Doodlebug, Bar-B-Cute collection. AND ... I added the instructions for this album to my shop with all the measurements and product links! Yay! (See links below.)

I love the red and white striped binder with this summer collection. The colors are perfect and the stripes remind me of beach towels or summer umbrellas. I added a few Doodle-pops to the cover and oh, that sun is one of my favorites! Such a happy face and the grill is just perfect for the season.
 
Check out the inside of the binder with it's red and white polka dots. It's such a cute surprise. I know everyone likes to get outside and entertain as summer arrives so ... "Fire up the grill", get your apron on and call your neighbors over! And btw, that word bubble cracks me up ... Daddio of the Patio! Men do love their grills.
 

Whether you're enjoying the sunny outdoors by having a family picnic, playing in the backyard, cooling off in the pool or having friends over to watch a game, this album will be a fun way to remember those moments.
 

Ice cream and summer go hand-in-hand and it's the yummiest way to cool off on a warm day. Enjoy it at home, take a trip to the ice cream shop or make your own homemade ice cream (yum!). Take pics of those happy chocolate covered faces
and sprinkle filled cones!


This album has 2 pockets for saving tickets, brochures or extra photos and lots of folding elements like flippies and fold-out pages. Not only do those make the album more fun but they also create extra space for your pictures!


Everything Doodlebug makes is just cute. Their happy faced collections certainly make my job more fun. I hope you love this Summer BBQ album as much as I do! 
 
Since this was a one-of-a-kind album, the instructions are in my shop and I've shared all the product links so anyone can make it themselves!

Me and You Scrapbook Layout

Hello friends and Happy Mother's Day tomorrow! I thought I'd hop on the blog and quickly share a 12x12 layout that would be great for your photos from the day but really ... you could use this layout for pictures from any occasion!


You could add a favorite photo of you and your little (or grand little!), you and your mom, you and your best friend or you and your sweetheart. I also added a great spot to journal about the occasion or include the date!


I designed this with the sweet, yet sophisticated Doodlebug Hello Collection. I love the deep blue, the bright pink and the touches of metallic gold - like the "Me & You" letters from the Chit Chat.

For the base I used a 12x12 piece of Bella Blvd's Graph and Dot in Blueberry. The gingham paper is called Tickled Pink (sold here) and the adorable blue polka dot is called Petite & Pretty (sold here). I had so much fun with the embellishments from the Chit Chat. Flowers, yes! Birds, you got it! Butterflies, ummm yah! And scalloped stickers from the This and That ... definitely!!

I love the row of hearts along the bottom. That's a strip from the 12x12 paper called Poppy Plaid (sold here). I added the word bubble from the Chit Chat and the birdcage is a mini icon sticker (sold here). I love the little bit of gold foil on this!


So what do you think? Do you have a wonderful picture for this layout? I hope this gives you a little inspiration, maybe for your Mother's Day photo!
