Family Scrapbook Mini Album with Echo Park I Love Family

It's Friday!!  Whoo hoo! ... and before I get my weekend started, I just wanted to hop on the blog to share pictures of our latest mini album kit with you.  

For this one, we used Echo Park's I Love Family collection, designed by Lori Whitlock.  The colors are perfect for fall and family, and this 6x6" album will make a wonderful gift this Christmas season!  Picture giving your parents, grandparents, or other family members a book of treasured photos ... they will love it!  

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Doodlebug Santa Album Ornament

Happy Tuesday Artsy Albums friends!  It's Traci and I'm happy to be back over on Doodlebug's blog today.  For my Here Comes Santa Claus project,  I decided to take my favorite project and shrink it down a bit to create an album ornament for my Christmas tree.
I used two pieces of 4.25" x 5.25" white chipboard for the front and back covers, and then made white card stock pages for the inside.  I used a Here Comes Santa Claus 6x6 paper pad to cover each page, and then loaded the album up with stickers and Odds & Ends die cuts.  

I punched two small holes at the top and used chunky twine to bind the album and hang it on my tree.  I love finding unique ways to include pictures on my Christmas tree, and I can't wait to add this little album this year!

Happy Birthday Artsy Albums!!

It's been 5 years!
...and what an amazing and rewarding experience this has been!
  I started Artsy Albums in October of 2011, with a little money and a lot of hope.  I prayed I would sell just 100 albums my first year ... I sold many more than that and have created over 2200 since then!

Thank you to my supportive family and friends, and amazing customers, who have been there with me through the 60+ hour weeks, crazy deadlines, and paper cuts.  We've saved a lot of memories in 5 years and helped many customers tell their stories on the pages of albums that will be passed down for generations.

Thank you so much everyone!!
