Explosion Album Box for a Birthday Boy, Doodlebug Dragon Tails

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. The links 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 are listed below.  Have fun with this project!

Our Wedding Day Scrapbook 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!
