Happy Friday! Today's a big day!! I have 3 ... yes three ... NEW kits. I introduced my 12x12 Pool Party Layout Kit on Wednesday. That's now in the shop along with 2 new Travel kits. I have an album and another 12x12 layout. Take a look. :)

First up is my "Time To Travel" Album ...

This cute mini is 6" x 7.5" and designed with Bella Blvd's Time To Travel collection. It's filled with warm colors of yellow, orange and green ... perfect for the summer season. I love the pattern paper on the cover. It gives you a sneak peek of all the fun travel icons that are inside.

You can use this scrapbook for ANY type of travel whether it's a road trip, a cruise or flying around the world. It's great for beach memories or sight seeing in the big city.

There are 12 chipboard pages (6 double-sided) with 2 flippies, 2 fold-out pages, and 1 super handy pocket.

Use the pocket to save those little tokens you often pick up along the way. These make your album even more personal. Include postcards, hotel stationary, a matchbook, travel stickers, brochures, tickets, a small map, a menu from your favorite restaurant, business cards, foreign currency, or even a pressed flower from a meaningful location or event.

I love adding flip-up cards (aka flippies) to my albums, like the one above. With the 2 photo mats behind it, you could add another picture inside or use the space to journal about your adventures. Be sure to include locations, dates, and fun stories.

Down On The Farm Tractor Mini Album

Hey guys! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team project. It's a mini tractor shaped album that uses the adorable Down on the Farm Collection. After raising 2 boys, I was quite familiar with green Tonka tractors so ... I created this little cutie! It's filled with lots of sweet farm animals and colorful prints!

I made the acrylic tractor shaped album with Doodlebug's Tractor On The Farm SVG file. This adorable acrylic album will be available in my shop soon! It's made of white and black acrylic but, you could make your own using use cardstock instead.

The little farmer is from the mini icon stickers. He turned out to be just the right size. I added a few heart sprinkles, then two red enamel dots to the tires. Oh Doodlebug ... you inspire such fun projects! 💗

Inside, there are 8 pages (4 double-sided) made of white card stock and different prints from the 6x6 paper pad. I love the smaller sized patterns. Why does everything look even cuter when it's shrunken down? Lol!

This mini would be great for fun everyday photos. You could also use it for a farm themed birthday party or baby shower. What a perfect memento to have filled with highlights from the event.

Did you grow up on a farm or live on one now? This would be awesome for your childhood photos or current ones. Include pictures of your barn, favorite animals, and good times with family and friends.

Hello summer! Don't those palm trees have you thinking about a tropical vacation? Even the orange pattern paper has a little squiggle print that reminds me of waves. What a great layout for photos of a day at the beach or sipping cocktails by the pool. Yes, please.

I love this page with the beautiful coral colored paper and the cute pineapple card. It says "A pineapple a day keeps the worries away". Ha! If only that were true ... I'd be eating pineapples every day. Right? 😂

Fairy Garden Snow Globe & Tutorial

Hello sweet friends! Today, I have a new project idea that is soooo cute!! It uses my acrylic snow globe album but ... there's no snow! I made this mini into a fairy themed birthday scrapbook. And for a little extra sparkle, I turned the snow globe's cover into a shaker filled with glitter and sequins! Ha! How cute is that??

Fairy snow globe shaped scrapbook album with glitter

In December, I made a Christmas album with this snow globe shape. I had so much fun with it so I wanted to create another one with a different theme, season and the shaker element. I've added a tutorial on how to do this below.

I chose the Doodlebug Fairy Garden collection and filled the pages with pretty colors, cute fairies and bugs and birthday wishes!

I used a mix of 12x12 and 6x6 pattern papers on each page. I love those happy little sunshine faces!

Then I added lots of colorful embellishments from the Odds & Ends, Chit Chat, Mini Icon Stickers, This and That stickers, and my favorites ... those little enamel shape sprinkles. (Product links below.)

To create the photo mats, I punched a 3.5" scalloped circle and a 3" circle out of patterned or white paper and added space for 8 photos in the album.

Wouldn't this be a great birthday gift for your mom, grandmother, daughter, sister, or friend? Fill it with pics of the littles, grandlittles, the besties or ... photos from a birthday party, luncheon, or girls night out!

Fairy snow globe shaped scrapbook album page

The Acrylic Snow Globe Shaped Album is in my shop. It's approximately 5.25" x 6" and is made from high quality white acrylic. The album comes with 2 covers, 1 frame, 4 white card stock pages, 3 templates for cutting patterned paper (pages, snow, and base), and 1 binding ring.

Shaker Cover Tutorial:

Here's how to turn the cover of the Acrylic Snow Globe Album into a shaker ...

You’ll need a piece of acetate (I like Graphix Plastic 12x12 sheets), a marker and a pencil for tracing the shape, and glitter or sequins to fill the shaker.  

First, use a marker to trace the acrylic frame shape onto the acetate and cut it out with scissors. 

Then use the base cover as a template to mark the binding hole. Using a 1/4" hole punch, cut the hole into the acetate. Be sure to do this separately from the acrylic. If you try to punch the hole through the acetate AND the acrylic together, it could crack the acrylic. Adhere the acetate to the top of the frame. 

Next use a pencil to trace the frame shape out of pattern paper and layer that over the acetate.

Add pattern paper and embellishments to the solid acrylic cover. Then sprinkle glitter or sequins on top and add the frame. Use a strong tape runner adhesive (I like Scotch ATG tape glider) to adhere the frame to the top of the solid cover.  

Then ... have fun embellishing the rest of the album.

Below, I've added product links to make shopping super easy.  Thanks for stopping by and I you enjoy this one!
