Basketball Scrapbook Album with Doodlebug

Hello everyone! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's a basketball themed mini album using the wonderful Slam Dunk Collection!

When my boys were young, they both played basketball. But as they grew up, they didn't quite grow UP enough (lol!) so basketball didn't become their thing. Still, we always had a hoop in our driveway and they enjoyed playing with the neighborhood kids. This little album will be perfect for saving those fun memories.  

I designed it with one of Doodlebug's Plain and Simple Chipboard Albums and loaded up the cover with paper from the 6x6 paper pad. The large circle was cut from the 12x12 Game Stripe sheet.

The album measures approx. 4x7 inches and comes with reinforced holes and 3 binder rings. Inside there are 20 pages covered in sporty pattern papers and lots of die cuts, stickers, and enamel sprinkles.

This makes a perfect keepsake for basketball photos, team pictures, Final Four or NBA parties, an afternoon of shooting hoops with friends, or new baby photos.

The chipboard tabs that come on the edge of the pages are cute and practical. I covered them with different colorful prints for a little more interest.

I love the smaller sized pattern papers in the 6x6 pad. The cut-apart cards are perfect for mini albums. In the picture above, the "Love the Game" card is 2x3 inches and looks great on this layout.

However, don't discount using the larger 4x6 cards for mini albums! Above, I used one on the left side page and just trimmed two of the sides down a bit.

Doesn't the die-cut basketball look cute flying off the top of the page?! On the right side, I added a card that flips up (aka the flippie) to save photos in. I added a few number stickers to the jersey. Mine represent the year, but you could add your player's number!

My albums are never quite complete without some enamel dots and sprinkles. Doodlebug has so many fun enamel shapes ... the stars were great for this project.

I hope you've enjoyed my Basketball Mini Album today. If you have some great action shots or team photos that need a home, this project would make an ideal keepsake for them ... or a great gift idea!
