This fun Spring Things acrylic album was created for a Doodlebug Design Team project, and was also sold as a DIY kit at Artsy Albums.

I love the Spring Things collection so much, I used it again for a 

This is a fun folding card that I created using one of Lori Whitlock's adorable cutting files.  

"Building Our Home" was created for a Simple Stories Design Team project. This album documents the story of building 
our new home in 2016.

This is my favorite shaped album of the year.  I used a large scallop 
Sizzix die to cut out the white chipboard pages. 

This is one of my newest projects, Handmade Goodness, and it was created as a DIY kit for my Artsy Albums shop.  For those who love to scrapbook, sew, quilt, knit or paint!  What a fun way to save those wonderful memories !

This darling little box was created with the Doodlebug BooVille collection.  A little album is tucked inside for saving my granddaughter's 1st Halloween memories.

I love this cutting file by Lori Whitlock.  I turned it into a 
little gratitude journal for Thanksgiving.

This sweet little Christmas Recipe Album was created 
for Doodlebug and then for Artsy Albums as DIY kit.

This was probably my favorite album of the entire year!

A Crafty Life Scrapbook Album Kit, Echo Park

Do you scrapbook? Sew? Quilt? Knit or Paint? Do you go to craft retreats with friends? Save all of these wonderful memories in this fun album!
This album will make a wonderful keepsake for all of your crafty memories!  The album measures slightly larger than 6x8 inches, and includes 12 scrapbook pages and 10 divided plastic photo sleeves.

Fabulous paper and embellishments, tags, fold out pages and pockets are just a few of the things in this creative album. The paper and embellishments are from Echo Park (designed by Lori Whitlock). The pages include pockets, several fold-out elements and more so that at least 30 photos can be added to the scrapbook pages, and many more can be saved in the plastic sleeves.

The title on the cover says "Handmade Goodness" and other pages say "Made With Love", "Live Love Create", "I Can Totally Make That",  and "The answer is crafting (I don't care what the question it)" ... just to name a few.

I always create my albums so that photos can easily tuck under embellishments, and I always use only acid-free, photo-safe supplies.
Thanks for visiting and happy crafting!!

Happy New Year Scrapbook Album with Doodlebug

Hi everyone ... I'm back to share my project for the Doodlebug Mix-It up challenge. The design team was asked to mix up a few collections for this week's challenge.  I used some papers from three different collections -- Hats Off, Gingham/Linen Prints and .... ??? Can you find the paper that doesn't go with the first two?  Do you remember which collection it's from??

I'll tell you the mystery paper in a minute ... but first you'll notice that I used Hats Off, a graduation line for a Happy New Year theme.  It worked perfectly since black, white, and silver are great colors for ringing in 2018!

Many of the embellishments in Hats Off also worked for my mini album ... especially the PARTY acetate, stars, and the adorable little cameras!  I even added in a firework embellishment from the Yankee Doodle collection!

Have you discovered the mystery paper yet?

You will find it in the photo above and in the one pictured below!

If you guessed the animal print from the At The Zoo collection, you are correct!! This was such a fun way to mix prints and embellishments.  We'd love to hear how you've mixed Doodlebug collections together in your projects!

Here are some product links & thanks for stopping by!

Lori Whitlock's December Blog Hop

It's December!  It's almost Christmas! and as I type this, it's snowing for the first time in two years here in Georgia!  Today was the perfect day for staying inside and creating some super adorable gift card holders and stocking stuffers.  

Since it's also Lori Whitlock's December Blog Hop, and my blog is the first stop on the hop, be sure to hop back over to Lori's site too, because she has some goodies for you ... a sale, a giveaway, and a cute freebie!
Aren't these little gift card bags adorable??  I tried to get a photo of the little gift card pocket inside, but it didn't photograph well ... so you'll have to trust me ... it's inside the little bag and a perfect spot for tucking in a card!

Need a cute little stocking stuffer or something adorable for each person's place at dinner?  These little mint wrappers are so much fun and SUPER easy to make.
