Hello Sunshine Acrylic Tabbed Album

Hello my friends! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project and it's such a cutie!! Since spring is in the air (yippeee!) I made a super sweet tabbed album that's filled with sunshine, flowers and rainbows. And who doesn't love those happy things? Instructions for this mini are available HERE.

I used Doodlebug's adorable Fairy Garden collection and my Acrylic Tabbed Album. Check out the tiny shaped sprinkles I added to each of the tabs. So cute! (All product links below.)
 
For the cover, I added a bunch of fun Doodle-pops & the Sunsational Shaker-pops. Since it's a clear acrylic album, I matched the shapes on the front and back of the cover to hide the adhesive. So, as you can see from the front side ...

... and the backside, all the shapes match perfectly! I love everything about this. Love the rainbow with the tiny row of hearts underneath, the little layered cloud, and that sweet sunshine face is just precious! 🌞

I used a mix of 12x12 and 6x6 pattern papers on each of the 12 acrylic pages (6 double-side). I had fun sorting through the odds & ends to find matches that could be backed up to one another. On the page above, the cute snail and mushroom have a duplicate set on the backside - just in different colors!

This album would be perfect for photos of spring, family and friends, Easter, or everyday life. What about playing outside, gardening, an afternoon in the park, a picnic, or a visit to the ice cream shop? It would be great in someone's Easter basket or given as a hostess or birthday gift.

I added a cute flippie on one of the pages that's perfect for journaling dates, names, locations, events, or notes. And inside, 2 small photos can be saved on colorful pretty plaid mat.

With flowers, butterflies and so much Doodlebug cuteness, I hope this project inspires you to create your own Hello Sunshine Album with the Fairy Garden collection. 
 
My Acrylic Tabbed Album is available in the shop now and the Instructions for my Hello Sunshine Album project will be in the shop tomorrow. Thanks for letting me share my newest mini with you!

Spring Greeting Cards & Tin Box

Hello scrappers! Today, I have a new spring project for you that would make a great gift for a birthday, Easter or Mother's Day. I decorated a simple tin box that holds 3 pretty handmade greeting cards. The cards and matching tin are a beautiful little set and a great weekend project. Take a look ...

Handmade Cards with Lemons and Butterflies

To make these, I used the Simple Stories Simple Vintage Lemon Twist Collection and a 5"x5.5" tin box I found in my stashI love the butterflies and the green and yellow color scheme of this paper line. It's fresh and cheerful and perfect for the spring season.

Handmade Cards with Lemons and Butterflies By Artsy Albums

Inside, there are 3 greeting cards - one is 4"x4" and 2 are approx. 4"x5". They include varying sentiments and since people always need cards ... it makes a really useful and practical gift!

Handmade Card with Butterfly By Artsy Albums

For each card, I used white cardstock as the base and added Vintage Lemon Twist 12x12 pattern papers and die cuts from the Bits and Pieces. Aren't t
hose butterflies gorgeous? Love them! The "Thinking of You" is from a Doodlebug stamp set (product links below).

Handmade Card with Flowers By Artsy Albums

This card was super simple. I just added a 4x4 card from the 12x12 elements print and a little bumblebee die cut with foam tape. Seriously, that's almost too easy, lol!

Handmade Card with Butterflies By Artsy Albums

For the Thank You card, I used the butterfly print that's on the backside of the 12x12 journal elements and added the frame die cut and the yellow butterfly
from the bits and pieces. The Thank You sentiment is another Doodlebug stamp and the scalloped ribbon is from May Arts.

Handmade Tin and Cards with Butterflies and Lemons

You can find tin boxes similar to this one at big box craft stores, Amazon, Etsy, and Oriental Trading Co. To cover it, I used 1/2" corner rounder on the paper's corners to mimic the box's shape.

This box can also be used for other presents such as gift cards, photos, or tickets! And ... it can be reused long after the cards have been given away to hold new handmade cards, save photos, jewelry, love notes, or receipts.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today and happy crafting!

NEW "Make The Most of Today" Album

Hi guys! It's Friday and I have two NEW albums for you! Yesterday, I introduced the first ... a beautiful Princess Album that's perfect for a girl of ANY age. And today, I'm sharing my second NEW album called "Make the Most of Today". I'm excited about this one because it's very different and unique inside.

Scrapbook Album with Butterflies and Flowers

I designed it with the Simple Stories Indigo Garden collection and it's filled with pretty wildflowers and butterflies. BUT, the album is a brand new style that I've never used before. It's a Tri-fold Waterfall Folio Album!!  Wait till you seeeeee ....

Inside, this folio has a pocket on the left side and a large pocket PAGE in the center. These are perfect for saving memorabilia, photos, and journaling cards. You could add fun bits and pieces from trips like postcards, letters, brochures, or tickets.

Check out those big, beautiful flowers. Stunning! What a great album for pictures of friends and family, everyday moments, a birthday party, or a wonderful Mother's Day gift! 

It would also make a pretty spring bridal shower or wedding album or ... a special thank you present. Add photos of a visit to a botanical garden, a butterfly farm, or a ladies luncheon.

What about a gardening album/journal? Take photos of your favorite flowers, make notes, save seed packets, or even press a few petals for safe keeping. This would be a great gift for a gardener.

But wait ... there's more! Flip over the pocket page and there are two beautiful waterfall elements. What a pretty surprise! These have lots of space for photos, journaling and more wonderful memories.

This folio album is very interactive and so much fun to put together. The kit comes with a full package of floral die cuts so you can add them throughout the album and make it totally your own.

Each waterfall element has a magnetic closure to keep the pages tucked in safely. I love the little butterflies on each of the ends.
