2-Page Summer Layout with Page Maps & Doodlebug

Hi everyone! Doodlebug teamed up with Becky Fleck and the Page Maps team this month and we are playing with some of the new July maps. Becky sent me a great 2-page layout with lots of photo spots ... perfect for summer pictures of my adorable nieces!

Here's the PageMaps July 2015 12x12 double :

And here's my take on the design:

I used Doodlebug SunKissed Collection, along with doilies, stickers and glitter sprinkles. I also used Fancy Frills border stickers ... and here's a tip:  when you buy Fancy Frills border stickers, buy 2! They are true 12" long stickers and if you buy 2 sets, you'll be able to create borders across both 12x12 pages like I did here!  

Thanks for stopping by today!  Here's a list of all the Doodlebug goodies I used on this layout:

Shaped School Cards with Lori Whitlock

Hi everyone! In Georgia, school starts back in August so I decided to create a one of Lori's adorable new shaped cards for today's post over on her blog.

For the apple card, I decided to add a "thank you" sentiment to the base book piece.  I used Lori's "Favorite" font to type my phrase, and then I did a print & cut on cream card stock. 
I love the print & cut feature of my CAMEO because I can add any word I want. It would even be cute to add a teacher's name to the front of these cards!

Lori has lots of these fun shaped cards in her shop so please hop over there and check them out! Have fun creating!!

New Travel Album DIY or Pre-made

Today's Project:  "Adventure" Travel Scrapbook
Created for:  Artsy Albums Online Shop

This album is available as a DIY kit or pre-made and will make a wonderful keepsake of your travels! 

Gorgeous paper and embellishments, tags, pockets -- these are just a few of the things that adorn the 20 pages of this beautiful album. The album is covered with fabulous paper and embellishments by Pink Paislee. The pages include two pockets and 4 divided photo sleeves so that at least 42 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. The title on the cover says "Adventure: Let's Go" and other pages say "Spread Your Wings", "Our Journey" and "Live in the Moment". 

This album would make a wonderful gift for a travel companion, a great journal to take on a trip, and the perfect place to keep photos of your vacation once you return.
