It's Saturday! Hope you all have some fun plans for the weekend :)
I wanted to share the latest mini album kit with you. This sweet 6x6 album will be perfect for your everyday photos -- those pictures of the kids being kids, a visit with grandma, a family outing or dinner -- any photos that are special and deserve to be displayed rather than tucked away in a drawer or on your computer.
Rich, vibrant colors, fun phrases, tags, pockets, and 3-D embellishments -- these are just a few of the things that adorn the 12 pages of this album. The cover is covered with beautiful paper and embellishments by My Mind's Eye. The pages include photo mats, brads, and a fold-out so that at least 18 photos can be added throughout the book. I always create my albums so that photos can easily tuck under embellishments, and I always use only acid-free, photo-safe supplies.
Anyone can easily save their memories with an Artsy Album kit! Visit my shop today :)
Have a wonderful weekend friends -- hope you make lots of memories!

Over the next few days I will be sharing some projects that I completed for the We R Memory Keepers CHA show booth. We R Memory has some awesome new products coming out this season that you are going to LOVE! Let's start out with a brand new paper line called Notable (shipping in November), an all occasion collection in bold colors of navy, red, yellow and orange. The collection includes cute camera and typewriter icons, arrows, and chevrons. For this layout, I also used We R Memory's Corner Mounter. This fun tool lets you create slits in your layout or card so that you can tuck in a keepsake without using adhesive.
On a side note, how fun is this fish? In 9th grade, my son was given an art assignment to turn a pencil into something completely different. Other students drew houses, rocket ships, and other things that resemble pencils. Not Rian...he really got creative with this one.
Stay tuned -- tomorrow I'll have another We R Memory Keepers layout to share. And don't forget to visit their blog for giveaways and more sneak peeks all week!

Today I'm sharing a little book I made for my son and his fiancé. Chrissy's sweet aunt had a couples shower for them yesterday and wanted a book for guests to write in "words of wisdom" for the happy couple. I decided to use one of the Fancy Pants Brag Books because not only do they have lined journaling pages (perfect for notes and "words of wisdom"), but they also have photo sleeves and pockets (great for shower photos and memorabilia). The paper and embellishments are also by Fancy Pants -- 'What A Wonderful Day'

For the how to ... I used heavy white card stock for the base of the box, album pages, and title. I wasn’t sure if it would be sturdy enough for the project but once I layered all of the other papers and embellishments on, it's very durable. I used the Echo Park, Here & Now Collection and the little sun sticker on the box cover is from the A Perfect Summer Collection.
I just love the "Today is a Happy Day" title! So fun. It's another one of Lori's cutting files called Chipboard Titles Vacation and the little birds on the branch are from the file called Love Birds (both links below). I chopped the legs off one of the little birds (poor guy) so it looks like he's sitting on the branch.
This album would be great for any of your family and friend memories or ... would make a cute brag book for pictures of the littles or gandlittles!
