(Sees links to the project's original blog post )

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!
