A Year To Remember Scrapbook Album

It's FUNday Fridaaaay and I've just added a great NEW kit to the shop titled "A Year to Remember". It's a perfect project for the upcoming new year and would make an amazing Christmas gift for someone special.

You can use this as an amazing planner. Or remove the monthly calendar cards and it becomes a beautiful scrapbook album for photos of everyday moments, family memories, a relationship, a meaningful event, etc.

I designed this with a 6x8 inch teal binder and the Simple Stories, Life Captured Collection. These papers and embellishments are filled with happiness so, it's sure to create good vibes for 2023.

There are pretty colors, flowers, butterflies, calendars, potted plants, birds, globes, and so much more!

This album is a biggie with 36 pages, 3 fold-outs, 3 pockets, 6 flippies, and space for 80+ photos. Wow!

The first few pages start out with pretty photo mats, great sayings, and colorful printed papers.

There are 3 kraft dividers that separate the year into sections as you can see in the photo above. I added a pretty pocket with some journaling cards to this one.

Each one of the calendar cards has it's own clear pocket page. You can document the month by adding photos, plans, notes, schedules, and memorabilia to the different spaces.

Or ... if you prefer, you can leave the monthly cards out and add memories with total randomness! I love that! This album is great for either idea.

Christmas Advent Calendar Scrapbook Page

Hey everyone! We're into December and the Christmas season is on! I love this time of year so playing with the Candy Cane Lane Collection has made me so happy! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's an advent calendar that would be a perfect addition to your scrapbook after the holiday.

Check out the little envelopes and those teeny tiny embellishments. So, so cute! I loved choosing all the different 6x6 and 12x12 patterned papers, die cuts, and stickers for this project.

I wanted little pockets or something, then remembered I had the Love Notes Doodle Cuts metal die set. The envelope I used was 2" x 1.25" (larger one on the card) so 25 envelopes (5 rows of 5) would fit perfectly. I cut, folded, and glued one for each day leading up to and including Christmas.

I created my base by layering three different 12x12 prints called Snow Bright, Holiday Lights, and Christmas Sprinkles. Next, I arranged my envelopes until I had them laid out evenly. 

It needed something in between the rows of envelopes so, I cut and added scalloped strips from the 12x12 print called Festive Flowers. 

I cut 25 white mats to
1.25" x 1.75" and tucked one inside each of the envelopes. These make a perfect spot for thoughtful notes. Or ... it would be really fun to add a clue or riddle! Then you could send people on a mini treasure hunt each day for a little surprise. You could hide a sweet treat, a small toy, tickets to an event, or even small photos from the day! 

Then ... it was time to embellish! I couldn't wait to use Candy Candy Lane's puffy shapes icons!! There are Santas, presents, flowers, reindeer, Christmas trees, snowmen, & holly. I LOVE every single one of them.

To keep track of the days, I added numbers to each envelope using puffy Alphabet Soup stickers in ladybug, swimming pool, limeade, bumblebee, and lily white.

At the bottom, I added some really cute die cuts from the Odds & Ends and the Christmas title from Chit Chat.

After the holiday, save this layout (along with your notes and clues) in a clear page protector and add it to your scrapbook. It's a perfect way to remember the fun you and your family had counting down the days until Christmas.💗

December Calendar Page Layout

Hello friends! Often, I'll share a fun calendar page on social media and people always ask where they can get the calendar that I used as the base. Apparently, they're hard to find. So, I did a little research and I'm happy to say ... the Doodlebug Daily Doodles are now available in my shop! Yessss!

I thought I'd make a new one for December & share some crafty ideas on how to decorate them with stamps, stickers, gems, papers, & die cuts!

December Calendar Scrapbook Page By Artsy Albums

The Daily Doodles pack in my shop includes 12 double-sided cardstock calendar pages plus one sticker sheet with 12 monthly titles.

To decorate this one, I used Doodlebug's Candy Cane Lane collection but you can use ANY line and mix it up depending on the season. I cut and layered strips of pretty 12x12 pattern paper to the top and the bottom of the page and ... a piece of red scalloped washi tape (product links below).

The December title sticker is included with the calendar pages, so that's super convenient. Then I added the adorable house die cuts from the Chit Chat to both sides of it.

The days of the week are already printed on the calendar so I just added some colorful mini jewels to that section for a little holiday sparkle. I chose a few holiday prints from the 6x6 paper pack and covered some of the squares. You could always add a sweet photo to these spots or keep them as is.  

December Calendar 12x12 Scrapbook Page Layout

I used a bunch of fun stamps in this project, too! I added a suitcase to indicate traveling, a wedding cake for my son's special day, and a balloon for a birthday. I don't do it often enough but I love incorporating stamps into projects. I forget how fun it is until I do it! Lol!

The stamps I used were Doodle Stamps - occasions everyday and occasions holiday.

I embellished the heck out of this layout and had so much fun doing it! The mini icon stickers are the perfect size for the squares. I also used the new puffy icons (which I just adore!!), and the Alphabet Soup puffy number stickers in limeade. 

For the dates, I used a combination of stamped numbers (using the Doodle Stamps - calendar typewriter), puffy number stickers, and I left some blank. I just thought it was more interesting this way.

My calendar page has a happy home on my refrigerator until the end of the month. You could also frame it and hang it on the wall.  Once the month is over, I'll add it to my scrapbook and it will be the first page for December in my album. 

Below are the product links. Hop over to my shop to get your Daily Doodles Calendar pages today! Quantities are limited.

Sweet Baby Scrapbook Album

Happy Friday! Christmas is coming and this week's NEW album is a fantastic gift idea! It's titled "Sweet Baby" and it would make a beautiful present for someone who's expecting, just had a baby, celebrating an adoption, or a grandparent. It could also be for YOU if you're pregnant, have baby photos that need a home, or looking for a future baby shower gift.

Sweet Baby Scrapbook Album By Artsy Albums

I designed this gender neutral baby album with the P13 Good Night Collection and one of my white 8x8 inch Acrylic Square Window Albums. It's perfect for a little boy or a little girl.

Just inside the cover, there's a wooden "Sweet Baby" title and a cute nursery scene that resembles a watercolor. I love the natural feel of the wood mixed with the soft pastels.

So many precious images fill these pages like little sleeping animals, dreamy clouds, the moon, stars, vintage toys, and more. Adorable companions for baby's photos.

The album has 12 pages that include fun elements like 2 fold-outs, 5 flippies and 1 pocket. I love the flippie on this page with the moon. Doesn't it look like it's glowing?

Baby Scrapbook Album Page with baby toys

There is space for at least 32 photos so there's room to add pictures of baby's cute napping positions, a bubble bath, play time, food covered faces, favorite toys, their nursery, toothless grins, and monthly pictures.

You can use the pocket to save memorabilia like baby's footprints, hospital bracelet, or meaningful greeting cards. Or, use it as a place to document some of their "firsts". The cards inside are perfect for this.

My Sweet Baby Album makes an AWESOME gift for an expecting or new mom, it's a fun weekend craft project, and makes a wonderful handmade keepsake for baby photos. Time to check another person off your Christmas list!

It's premade so it's ready for photos and makes the perfect gift, especially if you're too busy to scrap this month. You can tell them you made it ... I won't tell, lol!

I cut out a pretty white acrylic snowflake and added it to the clear cover for dimension.

I designed this album with a more traditional, sophisticated feel. It has the classic red and green color scheme and gorgeous pattern papers with poinsettia flowers, holly, stripes, plaids, and Christmas trees.

Inside, there are 12 scrapbook pages that include 2 fold-out elements. You can see one of them on the page above. I added a pretty Christmas tree made of chipboard but adhered it to the photo mat at the bottom. So, you can easily slide a picture in behind it.

I love the rich colors on this pocket page and that sleigh full of presents. This handy pocket is really useful for saving special cards, recipes, Christmas lists, or tickets to a holiday event. It also has cards inside that can be used as photo mats for extra pictures or for journaling.
