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!

The title on the cover says "Handmade Goodness" and other pages say "Made With Love", "Live Love Create", "I Can Totally Make That",  and on the page above ... "The answer is crafting (I don't care what the question it)". Ha! I love that one!

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

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!
