NEW Tis The Season Scrapbook Album

Hello friends and Happy Friday!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday. Today is Black Friday so I hope you'll hop over to my shop and check out my awesome SALE and ... my NEW ALBUM for the week!! It's called Tis the Season and it's filled with the most adorable Doodlebug winter theme!


This super cute mini would be perfect for photos of friends and family, holiday parties, a visit with Santa, playing in the snow, a winter vacation, decorating the tree, making gingerbread, and Christmas Day!
 

I designed this custom acrylic album (approx. 4.5" wide & 7.5" tall) with adorable scallops going down one side of the front and back covers.
 

And on the front cover ... I added an amazing snowglobe Doodlebug Shaker-pops! Ohhhh, I ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’— this! It has a sweet reindeer, a little red bird, and a Christmas tree inside with iridescent glitter!!! Soooo pretty.
 
 
Inside, there are 12 pages (6 double sided) with lots of interactive elements. Check out the photo above - the page on the left has a pink snowglobe fold-out card with photo mats behind it. And the right side ...


... opens up to look like this! Perfect for pictures of building a snowman, ice skating, skiing, making snow angels or having a snowball fight. I love all the circle shapes. They mimic the snowman, the penguin's face, the ice that the penguin is sitting on and some of the snowflakes. So cute!
 

There are fun little pull out tags that you can use for small photos or journaling. Add dates, locations, names, explain the event, or talk about the occasion.
 

There's even a little Yeti peeking out over the top of a fold-out card!
 

Going on a Christmas ski trip this year or visiting a beautiful winter wonderland? This album would be great for your vacation photos this holiday season.
 
 
Here's a close-up of the scallops on the back cover. I added cute prints to each of the semi circles. I love the little pops of color and pattern along the edge. 

This ... or any one of my albums would make a wonderful gift for someone on your list. Add photos from your adventures together or give it to them empty and let them fill it with their own memories. Who wouldn't love a keepsake of great moments to look back on? No one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

12x12 Thanksgiving Day Layout with Pumpkin Spice

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I have so much to be thankful for between my family, my friends, my good health, my faith, my business and all of my amazing Artsy Albums friends. Thank you so much for your support. I am truly thankful for you.
 

I'm sure everyone is either in the kitchen or with friends and family so, I'll keep today's post simple. I just wanted to share my latest 12x12 layout for a little Thanksgiving Day inspiration.
 

I made this page with some products from Doodlebug's adorable Pumpkin Spice collection and a few scraps from my stash. I can't wait to add some family photos to it after the holiday. 

I used the pretty plaid print called Cup O'Jo for the base and a strip of Forest of Friends at the bottom. Then hid the seam with a yellow border sticker from the This and That.
 
 
The Thanksgiving title is by Jillibean Soup and you can find it in the Silhouette Design Store with the link below. I layered each letter with a different colorful 6x6 pattern paper and one with a scrap of woodgrain in Bumblebee. Don't you love the 2 mats with those tiny slices of pumpkin pie? So cute!!
 

And for the really fun part ... I played with lots of cute embellishments! The word bubble is from the Chit Chat, die cuts from the Odds and Ends, the precious scarecrow is the Hay There Doodle-pops, and my favorite ... the shaped sprinkles called Fall Friends (product links below).
 
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday and that it's filled with the warmth and happiness of the season. ๐Ÿงก

Fall 8x8 Scrapbook Pages for November

Hey guys! It's time for my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's been a while since I've worked on my granddaughter's scrapbook so, I thought I'd make some cute 8x8 layouts. As a reminder, each month I create 4 pages for Rylee's Storybook Album that highlight our time together. I love making them and I also love Doodlebug's newest collection so ... this was a no-brainer.
 
 
For these layouts, I used the Great Outdoors collection. It's amazing for fall and Thanksgiving photos. The autumn colors are light, bright and happy and they look great mixed with a touch of brown. So, I used the My Type Alphabet Stickers in Bon Bon for my November title and it matches Bruce (the moose, lol!) perfectly!

 
I used the gorgeous Wild Flowers plaid for the background, a journaling card from the 12x12 My Favorite Flannel paper, and lots of trees from the Odds and Ends (product links below). Then, I embellished them a bit with some pretty jewels because ... who doesn't love a little sparkle?!

 
These pages are easy to replicate and would be great for family photos, backyard fun, an autumn festival, a cool weather hike amongst the fall foliage, an afternoon of baking, a neighborhood game of football, or an evening around a fire pit with wine, apple cider and smores! 

 
I'm a self-confessed Doodle-pops hoarder but I was thrilled to add a few to Rylee's sweet pages. She loves them so, I chose the adorable beaver called Nutty Buddy and a few smiling bees from Honey Bear.
 
 
I made a grid on this page with the Campfire Plaid washi tape. This is fun, easy and Doodlebug has lots of great tape patterns to choose from. You can put photos in all the sections or like me, add colorful paper to some. I love this polka dot print called Camping Spots. Ha! Such a clever name! 
 
 
Then I decorated the page with adorable die cuts from the Odds and Ends, Chit Chat and added the little "memories" sticker is from the 12x12 This and That sheet. Bee-utiful!
 
 
Swimming Pool is probably my favorite of the Doodlebug colors. On this page, I chose to use it in the Petite Prints Dot and Stripe for the background and I love it with this fall collection. 

 
I spy with my little eye ... a cute owl shape sprinkle! Oh, I love the sprinkles. I also added a teeny tiny frog on one of the pages. Did you spot him or are you about to scroll back to find him? Lol, it's like a Where's Waldo game.

I hope you get some fun ideas from these layouts. If you'd like to see other months from this album that use a variety of Doodlebug collections visit:

Into the Wild Scrapbook Album

Hello scrappers! It's Friday so don't forget about my NEW mouse shaped album and the Instructions for "Let the Magic Begin" Scrapbook are in the shop today (links below). 
 
AND ... I think you're going to have tons of fun with this week's new album! It is called "Into the Wild" and it's filled with lions and tigers and bears (oh my!). It has an animal, jungle, zoo, safari theme and it's perfect for so many photos!! Read on ... I've got ideas. ๐Ÿ˜‰
 
 
But first ... let me tell you about it. This mini is 6"x8" and it's designed with the Echo Park, Animal Kingdom collection. I had a lot of fun with this one. It's been a long time since I made an album with this theme. Plus, the colors are great and they're mixed with the cutest jungle prints. I'm so in love!


I used a Simple Stories binder and pretty colored papers on the cover. I wrapped it with a rich satin green ribbon and I think it's perfect.
 

With the name of the collection and the fantastic prints, I immediately thought of a trip to Disney's Animal Kingdom or ... ANY zoo. Photos of a fun day with animals would be perfect on these pages. And oh, how I love that terrazzo print paper and the lil' flippies.
 

This album would be great for a child who loves an animal or jungle theme. Or, what about a safari themed baby shower? I can imagine this as a sweet handmade gift for a new baby. 
 
 
It would be a wonderful album for a birthday with a zoo or jungle theme. Oh! and with a petting zoo! Lol! 
 


I love the idea of using it for for a family vacation. Have you been on an expedition to observe animals in their natural habitat? What about a visit to a sanctuary? Or a resort in the wilderness where wildlife abounds!
 
 
This "Into the Wild" mini album is so cute and would make a awesome gift for Christmas. Who do you know that loves animals, the jungle, a safari, or the zoo? 5 1/2 weeks left until the holiday! Just saying ... ๐Ÿ˜Š

Links for my "Into the Wild" Album, the new Mouse Shaped Acrylic Album & the Instructions for my "Let The Magic Begin" Scrapbook are all below. Have fun!
