July 4th Scrapbook Album Kit

School's out here in Georgia, the heat has kicked in, and the pools are open! Before we know it, we'll be planning for July 4th fireworks so here's a little red, white, and blue inspiration for you!
For this mini album, I used the Yankee Doodle collection and lots of petite prints. I combined 6x8 pages, pockets, and fold-out elements in a binder from Simple Stories. And yes!, this album is available as a do-it-yourself kit in my Etsy shop at Artsy Albums.

The patterns and die cut odds & ends pieces for this collection are perfect for lots of activities ... fireworks, BBQs, parades, family fun, and anything red, white, and blue!


The tab stickers above, and several of the cute border stickers, are from the Stars and Stripes Fancy Frills sticker sheet.  I love how cute they look on the chipboard tabs of this binder!
The Odds & Ends package has lots of great acrylic pieces like the "America" above, and the "July 4th" on the cover. I hide clear glue dots behind these pieces to adhere them to my pages.


I don't want to rush my summer along too much, but I do always love the July 4th holiday. Stop by my shop if you're interested in making this album for yourself, and until next time, happy scrapping!!

8x8 Farm Pages

You may remember that I recently shared my 8x8 Storybook album with you (previous post here).  It's an album I'm working on for my granddaughter and I've completed a few more pages so I thought you might like to take another peek!
For these pages, I used another Doodlebug favorite, Down on the Farm.  This line worked perfectly for our family photo shoot even though we weren't at a farm.  


This 8x8 album is a great size for putting the focus on the photos.  The photos in the pictures above are 4x6.  
Most of these photos on these pages are 3x4 and I love how the Storybook Album highlights them.  
My granddaughter had a little stuffed pig that she brought to the park for the photos ... perfect piggy inspiration for these pages ;)!
Hope you all have a wonderful, crafty week!  See you next time!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all the moms out there!  I have a fun, mom-inspired mini album to share with you today using one of my fave Doodlebug collections, Hello!
For this album, I wanted lots of the pretty pattern paper to show so I created a cascading effect by sizing each page one inch shorter than the page below.  They are 6" wide, and then 4", 5", 6", 7", 8" and 9" high.
Isn't the pop of gold in this collection pretty? The "Love You Bunches" piece from the Chit Chat pack worked perfectly on this page.
Dark pink and lime green are one of my favorite color combos!  
For the page above I used an envelope from the Hello card assortment pack.  This will be a fun place to tuck notes and photos!

Well, I'm off to spend Mother's Day with my boys.  I hope everyone has a great Sunday and will join us again tomorrow for more crafty inspiration!

Happy National Scrapbook Day!

Happy Scrapbook Day friends!  I'm spending the day playing with some new Doodlebug Design goodies.  I've actually had a project in mind for a few months, but haven't gotten the chance to create it until today.  
Doodlebug's new stamp sets inspired me to make a little coloring book for my granddaughter!  

I'm using several different sets ... a sun from one, a bunny from another...to create little scenes on her pages.  Oh, and the cute "coloring" title is from the Hoppy Easter Odds & Ends!
Well, I'm off to go stamp some more pages for her.  Hopefully this little book will entertain her for more than two minutes during a road trip we have coming up in a few weeks! 
 Happy scrapping everyone!!
