Paper Crafting Fun at Artsy Albums

Hi Artsy Albums friends!  
I'm just hopping on the blog today to share some recent projects with you. Nothing makes me happier than a table full of cute, colorful paper and embellishments!  I just get lost in all the fun! 

First, is a winter page layout I created with some cute pictures of my son and niece.  Doodlebug's Frosty Friends collection was perfect for this layout.  I only had these two small photos so I created a collage using paper and embellies, and made a cute swirly sketch line with my CAMEO machine.  A few little enamel dots finished the page.  How cute are those snowmen?? ... and those kids :) !

For this little mini album, I used a Doodlebug chipboard album and Bella Blvd's cute Christmas Cheer paper.  I just love the candy cane stripe on the cover, and the snow globe peeking through the window.  

Thanks for stopping by my blog today and letting me share my fun projects with you!

New Mini Album Scrapbook Kits This Week!

Happy Wednesday friends!
Did you enjoy the blog hop yesterday?  There were so many cute projects -- I just love Lori Whitlock's designs!

In addition to hopping along with the rest of Lori's creative team, I added two new mini album kits to the shop this week.  In fact, I've been so busy creating new kits that I haven't even put up my Christmas tree yet!  That's on the "must-do" list for today :)

Here are the new kits...precut with full color instructions (also available pre-made).
As always, you can purchase them here:

December Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock Designs

Hi everyone,  
Welcome to Lori Whitlock's December blog hop!  
If you just hopped on at my blog, be sure to head back over to Lori's site and start from the beginning :)  There are lots of fun projects at each stop so you won't want to miss any of them!

For my project, I created a cute Christmas package for one of my gifts.   I'm always amazed at the cute designs that Lori comes up with, and when I saw her Santa sleigh,  I knew a few of them had to be tucked under my Christmas tree!

Santa is such a great guy that I decided his sleigh deserved lots of sparkly bling.  I added rows of crystal gems along the silver metallic card stock to give this little sleigh all the shine it deserves.  The cutting file is super easy to assemble, and once it's all glued together, it makes the perfect presentation for a cute little gift.  Fill the sleigh with candy or a small present, or you could even hang it on your tree.  

In addition to all the cute gems and sparkly card stock, I added a chipboard "sign" on the front of the sleigh.  Lori designed the chipboard for her Echo Park "Christmas Cheer" collection, and it fit perfectly on the sleigh front, along with a few more gems and some red twine.  

Like the sign says, "Tis the Season To Be Jolly,"  so I hope your Christmas is filled with fun, family, friends, creativity and lots of "jolly!"

Now back to the hop....your next stop is Kathy's blog!

Silhouette Santa Clause Gift Card Holder with Lori Whitlock

’Tis the Season and Santa will be here before we know it!  I’m having fun creating lots of cute gift card holders for my nieces this year.  Lori makes this fun and easy with her cute cutting files … isn’t this cuter than an envelope??

Although the file is easy to cut and assemble, Lori does have this You Tube video in case you want to see how each of the pieces go together.  

Make this a handmade holiday and have fun creating your own gifts this Christmas!

For my project I decided to create a little gratitude journal to pass around at Thanksgiving.  I love to record everyone's thoughts on what they are thankful for each year.  Lori's cute little pumpkin album was perfect for this project :)

Here is a list of Lori's designs that I used for this layout:
