Explosion Album Box for a Birthday Boy

If you are in the mood to play with lots of embellishments, an explosion box is a great project!  

This cute box will make such a great gift ... and it's so much fun to make!  Not only is the box itself a unique gift, but you can tuck another small present down inside.
Once you remove the lid, the box folds open to reveal lots of layers and cute embellishments.  I also plan to add photos on some of the blank pages.
For the outside of the box, I added pattern paper and stickers from the adorable Dragon Tails collection.
The Odds & Ends were perfect for these pages ... just the right size!

Is that little dragon clip not the cutest?  He's hanging out on the edge of a treat bag that I cut down and re-glued to fit my small page. 
What would a mini album be without a few adorable boutique buttons?

And sprinkles!!  My all-time favorite embellishment ... especially the glitter ones :)
I finished up the box by hanging some mini garland around the lid.   Here is a link to the Explosion Box cutting file I used for the base layers (I cut all of the pattern paper by hand) and a similar cutting file by Lori Whitlock.  Have fun with this project!

Our Wedding Day Album with Simple Stories

It's been a few years since my son and daughter-in-law got married, but a small gift album had been on my to do list for a while.  I wanted a 4x6 album with some of our favorite photos from the big day, and I knew the Always and Forever collection would be perfect for this project.
I kept the album simple and used clear stickers on photos and pocket cards.
The die cuts, chipboard stickers, and element cards helped make the album fun, and added space for journaling that I wanted to record.

I especially love the page above.  Although you can't tell in the photo, I wish you could see the pretty gold foil on the die cuts!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and taking a peak into my mini album!  The products I used for this project are:
4x6 Snap Binder
Always & Forever Snap Cards
Always & Forever Clear Stickers
Always & Forever Bits & Pieces
Always & Forever Chipboard
Always & Forever 6x8 Paper Pad
Always & Forever Element Cards

Farm Memories Mini #2 with Doodlebug Designs

One mini album using Down on the Farm just wasn't enough!  This collection is just so super cute that I had to make another one.  If you missed the first one, you can get the details on that one here.  This time, I used a 6x6 chipboard album and created a little farm scene on the cover.
I used the 6x6 Down on the Farm paper pad (except for the 12x12 red bandana paper on the cover).  The 'Farm' title piece is from the Chit Chat pieces, and then I added rub-on letters for the 'memories'.
The sweet little cow and sheep are from the icon stickers.

Is that jelly clip not the cutest thing ever!  I used two of them in this album ... one for each pocket.

I love all Doodlebug sprinkles, but those little chicks are just precious!
Well, that's farm mini #2!  I hope you are enjoying all of the country cute projects that the design team is sharing this month!  Join in the fun and share your projects with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest!
