Hello Fall Scrapbook Album

Happy Friday!! I'm having a great time at She Loves Color and I'm so happy to be meeting so many of you in person! If we haven't met yet, be sure to come find me in the Bright & Bold room. I'll have a little gift for you!

Yesterday, I shared one of two NEW albums for the week, Christmas Blessings. It uses a fun, colorful Bella Blvd collection and it's perfect for your sweet December photos. Today, I'm introducing #2 for the week and it's called Hello Fall. It's filled with all the cozy, earthy, autumn feels ... take a look.

This wonderful new album uses a Simple Stories collection called Simple Vintage Country Harvest and a 6"x8" Flipbook. I love the autumn colors (check out the pretty teal color!), the leaves and all the beautiful butterflies.

This pretty album will be such a meaning keepsake for your fall photos. I can just see pics of family and friends on these pages snuggled up in cool weather clothes, outside amongst the changing leaves. This would also be great for your professional family photos.

I love the change in seasons. It always allows for new photo opportunities like a fall festival, a visit to the pumpkin patch, Halloween, apple picking at the orchard, a corn maze, high school homecoming parades, football games, and all the colorful outdoor changes. It’s a wonderful time to take pictures.

This album has plenty of room for 40+ photos, spaces to journal, and a handy dandy pocket for memorabilia. So save those favorite fall recipes, tickets from an activity or event, brochures, postcards, sweet love notes or even a few colorful dried leaves.

Of course, I have to include fun folding elements in all my albums. I really love a good flippie! And speaking of which ... should we just ignore the fact that those pumpkins in the truck above are really, really big? Lol!

This album would be perfect for your Thanksgiving memories, too. Are you going away or having company come to visit? Take pics of your special feast with all the fixins' and desserts! Spend the long weekend enjoying your family and friends, go on a hike, roast marshmallows over an outdoor fire pit ... or better yet, make SMORES!! And ... take lots of fun photos!

So ... what do you think of album #2, Hello Fall? Really pretty, right? Along with my new Christmas Blessings Album, I definitely have you covered for your seasonal photos!! 

To purchase these albums, hop over to my shop with the links below. Have a great weekend!

Christmas Blessings Scrapbook Album

Hello everyone! This is a big week. Not only am I at the She Loves Color event in Wisconsin (yippeee!) but ... I also have TWO NEW ALBUMS for you!! 
Today, I'm introducing the first one and it's pretty special. It's called Christmas Blessings and it's just perfect for your sweet holiday photos. It will be in the shop tomorrow along with a different second album.
This 6"x8" mini was created with the wonderful new Bella Blvd collection called Let Us Adore Him. It's just adorable. I love the cover with the little stable, Mary and Joseph, and baby Jesus with his tiny brown curl. The colorful Christmas tree paper adds a bit of fun and so does the cute little donkey!
The theme is one that I hold close to my heart - remembering and celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. The collection is designed in a fun, cheerful and modern way. There are bright colors, adorable die cuts, and really pretty patterned papers.
It's perfect for all your fun moments throughout the month, leading up to the big day. Add photos of picking out a Christmas tree and decorating it, your beautiful home - inside & out, the twinkle lights, bows, garland and the big beautiful wreath on your front door.

I love the candy cane striped journaling card on this page. Wouldn't it be wonderful for listing all of your family's favorite holiday traditions?

These pages are great for photos of caroling, a visit with Santa, helping with a charitable cause, a holiday event at school, a church play, a beautiful light festival, or going to a Christmas show like the Nutcracker.

There's a pocket for special Christmas cards, notes to and from Santa, a program from church, the littles wish list, holiday recipes, tickets to a show or extra photos. I'm loving the cute pop of pink!

Did I mention there's room for 50 pictures? Plenty of space for photos of baking holiday cookies, a Christmas party, shopping on Main Street or a beautiful frost covered landscape worth remembering.

And last but not least ... Christmas Day. Be sure to capture the joy on the littles faces when they see what Santa brought them, the amazing meal and yummy desserts, and all the wonderful quality time spent with your sweet family and friends.
I hope you love this album as much as I do. Remember to check it out in the shop tomorrow along with #2 for the week. Have a great day!

12x12 Halloween Night Layout

Hey guys! Who loves Doodlebug's new Happy Haunting collection? Meeeee toooo! So, I made a cute 12x12 layout with it for my fun photos of this year's Halloween shenanigans! Check out those bright colors, the kooky eyes and the funny little shaped house. Perfect for pictures of costumes, trick-or-treating, and a pumpkin full of loot!

I love the symmetry of this design. I got my inspiration from this block-style layout that's a 2021 October Page Maps Sketch. I love Page Maps! You can see more here.

I started with a 12x12 sheet of black cardstock and a colorful gingham print called Happy Owl-oween. I added some mats in black and white with more fun 12x12 prints and created somewhat of a grid.

This purple section is so cute!! The paper is Doodlebug's petite print buffalo check woodgrain in Orchid. I added a journaling card and lots of fun goodies from the Odds and Ends, Bits and Pieces and Chit Chat (product links below).

Don't these prints look great together? I love that they share the same color palette but have a very different pattern size. The fun little stars and bat die cuts are from the Odds and Ends.

Then, as the pièce de résistance ... I added some adorable SPRINKLES!! My favorite! The teeny tiny grey clouds and stars are so cute. They make me so happy. Oh man ... I really am a scrapping nerd. 😂

Below are links to the products I used. Have a great day!

OOAK Happy Trails Scrapbook Album

Howdy folks and happy Monday! I've added a NEW one-of-a-kind album to my shop today and it's called Happy Trails. It has a wonderful western theme that would be perfect for lots of your fun photos, but ... think of how cute it would be for Halloween! If you have a new lil' sheriff in town, a cowboy, cowgirl, or any outfit that celebrates the wild west this would be the ideal album for those pictures. 

It would also make a wonderful gift for someone who loves the western genre with horses, saddles, lassos, cowboy hats, boots,
bandannas, & spurs. Or what about saloons, pioneers, ranches, stagecoaches, gold rushes, long-horned cattle and cattle drives? Yeehaw!
This 6"x6" album is such a cute size. It's designed with the Simple Stories, Howdy collection and again, I only have one. It's a unique, one-of-a-kind and once it's sold ... it's gone, partners!

It would be wonderful for anyone who loves Walt Disney's Toy Story Movie with Sheriff Woody and Jesse, the adorable yodeling cowgirl. Perfect for their trick-or-treating photos, a birthday or just because they're fans!

It would be fun to save your memories from a foot-stompin' country music festival, a rodeo, or a horse show.

You can add pictures from a fun filled vacation to the Wild West, a horse ranch, Arizona, New Mexico, Wyoming, Texas or Montana. 
What about an exciting family trip to Disney's Frontierland with Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the Country Bear Jamboree?

Or ... have you been to Nashville's Grand Ole Opry or the Country Music Hall of Fame? I love all these ideas!

From horseback riding to Halloween ... this scrapbook will highlight all your memorable photos with a cute country western flair.  So, if you're interested, giddy up! It won't be in the shop for long! 🤠 

Below, I've added the album's link in my shop. I've also added the product links since this is a one-of-a-kind and not a kit.
