#TogetherAtHome Quarantine Album Kit, Photo Play

Hey guys, the past few months have been a crazy and unprecedented time. The Coronavirus pandemic has affected everyone. It has changed the way we live, work, attend school, shop, interact and spend time with our families. Many of us want to document this time of our lives so, I created a new album kit that's perfect for telling the stories and saving the photos of life #TogetherAtHome. 

I used 3 collections in this album -- Quarantine Life, Stay Home and First Responders (all by Photo Play Paper Co.) so it's packed with great papers, cut apart cards, die cuts and stickers.

There's lots of room for those mask wearing selfies and family photos playing games, watching movies, cooking together or reading books.

With all the birthdays, anniversaries and other special events we've had to get creative when it comes to celebrations and ... there's room for those pics too.

At least 40 photos can be added to the pages and more can be tucked into pockets. There is also journaling space to tell the stories of working from home, home schooling and keeping a responsible social distance from others.
The album measures slightly larger than 6x8 inches and includes 22 pages. There are twelve 6x8 inch scrapbook pages with fold outs, pockets and flaps and divided photo pocket pages for saving even more memories. 

The pre-cut scrapbook kit includes all of the materials and instructions to make this fabulous album!

Memorial Day Acrylic Mini Album

It's Memorial Day!  A very important holiday here in America, when we remember and honor the men and women who've given the ultimate sacrifice for their country, while serving in the US Military.  Many of us observe this holiday by visiting memorials, spending time with family, attending parades and going to picnics.  In honor of the holiday, I created an acrylic mini album for saving memories from this day, showing off all the red, white, and blue of the Fireworks and Freedom collection!
For this mini, I used an acrylic album from Clear Scraps, and added paper and embellishments so that each page appeared to be layered on the next. 
That cute blue star in the corner is an acrylic shape from the Patriotic Stars set, and I love how the Doohickey stickers from the collection fit perfectly on the page tabs.

Since some of the layered details are hard to see, I created a quick flip through video for you!

I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day holiday, and if you get some time for crafting I hope I've inspired you to create with a little red white and blue today!

Family Stories Scrapbook Album, New Instructions

Happy Sunday friends! Over the past few months, family time has probably been more abundant than ever. And this weekend I found an older project called Family Stories that I think would be great for everyone. 

No matter what your family looks like - a spouse and kids, your grandparents, close friends or your pets ... family is family. So, scrap and save all your beautifully crazy family moments! Cute selfies, photos of playtime, game night, cooking in the kitchen, an afternoon of arts and crafts or funny snuggling pictures ... this album is perfect for all of them. 

I just added this special Family Stories album to my Digital Instructions. The original album was designed with paper & embellishments by Echo Park. So pretty! Check it out!

Dog House Mini Album with Bella Blvd Cooper

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm sure by now you've seen the amazingly cute Cooper and Chloe collections by Bella Blvd, and I can't tell you how much fun I had playing with them this week!  I designed 6x8 album kits for Artsy Albums with both lines, but I needed a smaller version to give as a gift to a friend who just got a new puppy.  
The dog house shape was easy to create with some black chipboard, and the overall album covers and pages are a bit larger than 4"x6".
The 6x6 Cooper paper pad was perfect for the smaller prints in this cute little mini.
And the Ephemera Icons have so many cute pieces!  Won't a puppy paw picture look adorable on the little round mat next to all of those cute circles?!
The colors are fun too!  Bright Bella colors with a mix of brown and a touch of black ... I love it!

Thanks so much for visiting the blog today!  Don't forget that I have new "Woof" and "Meow" album kits available over in the shop ... or see the links below.  Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Birthday Gift Tag Set with Doodlebug Designs

Sometimes I like to pull out a few fun supplies and create something small.  It gives me such a sense of accomplishment, especially when I want to be creative, but don't have a lot of time. Today was one of those days, so I gathered some Doodle Cuts, stickers, and a few scraps of paper and voila ... the cutest little birthday gift tags!

The first thing I did was cut out 12 tags using the Doodle cuts large tag.  I also cut a bunch of colorful little hole reinforcers with Party Time and Hey Cupcake paper.
I had so much fun adding the mini icons to my tags ... they are the perfect size and there are so many stickers!  2 sheets in every pack!
I wanted some of the tags to have cute little borders ... the Doodle Cut borders and edges made this super simple and oh so cute!
That adorable little scallop circle above was cut using the Doodle Cuts Nesting Scallops, and the To: From: is a stamp from the Birthday Boy set.

Can you see how much fun this was to do?  Little tiny individual projects that will come in handy, and be so cute, on the next gifts I wrap!
So grab some Doodle Cuts and some mini icons and have fun making one little tag or twenty! My guess is, you'll have fun making more than that! Tag us and share your projects!  We always want to see what you're creating!
