Doodlebug Spring Garden Layout

Happy Monday everyone! I'm back over on the Doodlebug Blog today, sharing my Spring Garden layout.   I just love the patterns and colors in this collection -- plaids, dots, flowers, chevrons -- they are all so cute and there's also a whole page of cute little polaroid frames.  

Sprinkles are probably my favorite scrapbooking embellishments.  I added quite a few to this page,  including the new tiny flower shapes ... CUTE!!

Here is a list of the Doodlebug goodies I used to create this page:
Spring Garden Icon Stickers
Spring Garden This & That Stickers
Tiny Flower Shape Sprinkles
Berry Blossoms Paper
Sweet Talk Paper
Fruit Stripe Paper
Kiwi Dot Paper
Garden Paid paper

Happy crafting everyone!  Don't forget to stay up-to-date on our latest kits, sales, and giveaways by "liking" Artsy Albums on Facebook and following us on Instagram @artsyalbums!

This will be fun Easter decor piece to set out each year, filled with fun spring and Easter memories!

The photo crate is available pre-made, or as a DIY kit.  It includes the 7 Gypsies crate, all of the pre-cut materials, and easy-to-follow assembly instructions.

Lori Whitlock's March Blog Hop

Hi everyone!  Today I'm hopping along with Lori Whitlock's Creative Team for our March blog hop!  If you are starting here, be sure to head back over to Lori's Blog to start from the beginning.  We have lots of creative ideas to share with you!

For my project, I created a few cute sets of magnets for my refrigerator.  You can use Lori's files to make magnets that are perfect for any holiday or season.  I decided on St. Patrick's Day and Easter this time!

I used self-adhesive magnet material by Silhouette.  It cuts easily and is really fun to use.  After cutting your shape from card stock or pattern paper, cut the same background shape from the magnet material.  Peel off the magnet backing and adhere the material to your shape.  Easy!

Aren't the St. Patrick's day shapes, and these Easter eggs cute?  Can you imagine how many fun magnets you could create with Lori's files?   The possibilities are endless so have fun!

Now on to your next hop stop ... but first, don't miss out on all of the special goodies Lori has for you today!

Your next stop is:  Kathy Skou

Simple Stories Carpe Diem Scrapbook Album Kit

I love this new collection from Simple Stories called Carpe Diem.  I've incorporated lots of pieces from the collection into our newest scrapbook album kit that's perfect for everyday memories, family and friend photos, or a book all about you .... here are the details!

This album is available as a DIY kit or pre-made and will make a wonderful keepsake for photos of friends and family, selfies, college life, everyday memories, and so many other occasions. The album measures slightly larger than 6x8 inches, and includes 12+ scrapbook pages, 4 fun shaped pages, 8 divided plastic photo sleeves, and a large envelope for memorabilia.  

Gorgeous paper and embellishments, tags, fold out pages, pockets -- these are just a few of the things that adorn the 12 pages of this beautiful album. The cover is covered with fabulous paper and embellishments by Simple Stories. The pages include two pockets, a fold-out page and more so that at least 25 photos can be added throughout the book, and many more can be saved in the plastic sleeves. 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 "Carpe Diem: Your Life is Your Story. Write Well. Edit Often." and other pages say "Work Hard; Play Hard", "Hello Weekend", "Live Colorfully", and "Can't Rain on My Parade" ... just to name a few.

This album would make a wonderful gift for a family member, friend, or co-worker. The theme is very general ... everyday life ... so lots of photos and memories can be saved here!

If you order the album pre-made, it will be shipped completely assembled and ready for photos or gift-giving.
