It's Saturday afternoon and I am sooooo excited! I have just been finishing up a Summer/Travel/KindaBeachy kit today and you are going to love love love it because Fancy Pants Designs recently released THE cutest collection of paper and embellies called "Down By the Shore" and it's ADORABLE! (I am pretty sure that was a horrible run-on sentence and I should go back and edit it...but you get the point right?....cuteness....enough said).
The last finishing touches will go on the kit tomorrow and I will add it to the shop, blog and Facebook, as soon as it's photo worthy, but I did want to give you a tiny sneak peek this evening because I know a few of my Artsy kit lovers have been asking about this one :)
Disclaimer -- I realize this is a bad pic -- nothing is glued down so things look a little wonky, plus there are a few pieces missing from the final version....but at least you will get the idea :)
Stay tuned ladies....

Here are a few pics of the mini I completed today -- this will be a limited edition kit until I can get more product in. The album is a custom die-cut cascading scallop album with 6 chipboard pages. The paper is from My Mind's Eye and the colors make me think of popsicles :)
What do these colors remind you of?

Since I'm usually working on Artsy Albums Kits, I rarely have time to scrapbook my own photos. So, I thought I would share a layout that I actually completed for my family album. Shocking!
This layout is about my beautiful niece and her high school graduation. The paper line is by Echo Park called "All About A Boy" -- obviously, this layout is NOT about a boy :) so I want you to be inspired, as I was, to use paper collections that might be "themed" for one thing ... for something else entirely! Don't skip over a certain collection because of a "theme"... look closely and envision what else you could do with those fun papers and embellies!
Now, with that said, this new collection by Echo Park is super cute and does have a ton of fun "boy-cuteness" going on, so I had to create a new kit :)
The latest Artsy Albums Kit is not really all that mini this time either. This chipboard album is 8x8 and includes 16 fun pages for lots of guy memories -- 8 full scrapbook pages, 8 pocket pages for tucking in a frog or two, and 4 fold-out inserts for additional photos and journaling.
Here are a couple pics...let me know what you think!

I've also got a brand new friendship mini album that launched today over in the shop. It's called "Friends Are Good for the Soul" and the colors are fabulous!! This paper collection by Little Yellow Bicycle makes me so happy ...
Thanks for stopping by!

Often times, scrapbookers get so involved in documenting the lives of our kids, and our families, that we forget that someone, someday, might want to know who WE were in 2013! I might even want to look back and see who I was in 2013 :) So, check this out...
It's all about you (or your daughter, or friend, or anyone!) -- each page is for a photo and
journaling about something that starts with that letter of the alphabet that makes you who you are.
What do you like? What do you do? Favorites? Friends names? Family names?
For example, my album goes like this:
A -- Artsy Albums :)
B -- Beach
C -- Chocolate
D -- Dining out
E -- Evening walks
F -- Family
G -- Georgia
14 6x8 scrapbook pages + 12 6x8 pockets, each one corresponds to a letter of the alphabet for a total of 26 pages)
This Artsy Albums Kit includes all of the product needed to make this mini album (except tools and adhesive), in addition to step-by-step instructions with color photos of each page. All of the products used in my kits are current or recent release scrapbook supplies by the most popular manufacturers, and always acid and lignin free so these little keepsakes are safe for your photos!
The kits are pre-cut and packaged by page -- so easy and so fun!
The All About Me mini album kit listed here includes the following:
6x8 album with 24 heavy card stock pages (12 front & back) and two chipboard covers
3 binding rings
Pre-cut pattern paper by My Mind's Eye
Embellishment stickers by My Mind's Eye
Chipboard stickers by My Mind's Eye
22 journaling cards
Full color instructions with photos of each page
Not included in the kit:
Tools you will need to complete this kit:
Paper trimmer and/or scissors (for minor cutting; most paper does come pre-cut for you)
Pop Dots or dimensional adhesive
Not a scrapbooker?
Let me know and I will create one for you -- all ready for you to add your pictures!
