Memorial Day Acrylic Star Album + Activity Ideas

Hello everyone and Happy Memorial Day. I want to express my sincere gratitude and joy for the life we live today as I recognize that it was provided by the sacrifices of others. While we celebrate our freedom with family and friends, let's not forget to honor those who served our nation and are no longer with us.πŸ’™

I hope you have a wonderful day and for all the photos you'll take ... I have a fun new project for you. It's a mini album called Land That I Love and I've added the acrylic album AND the instructions for it to my shop! So, you can easily recreate this. (Links below.)

Memorial Day & July 4th Scrapbook Album with star and eagle

I designed this with my 6x6 inch Acrylic Star Window Album (available in blue or red). It has 12 white cardstock pages (6 double-sided) that include 4 flippies, 2 fold-out pages, 1 pocket, and space for 20 photos.

I also used lots of cuteness from the Doodlebug Design, Land That I Love Collection. It's filled with vibrant Americana colors, fun icons, and pattern papers with stars, stripes, hearts, dots, and plaids. I love this one.

I created this project for Memorial Day but it could also be used for photos of the 4th of July. Thinkin' ahead!

I love a good pocket and this one could hold small flags or ribbons, programs, tickets, newspaper articles, journaling cards, stickers, notes, patches, or extra photos.

This scrapbook is a fun project and it's great for saving any Memorial Day activity. Here are a few ideas ...

  • Hang the American Flag outside your home
  • Attend a Memorial Day Parade
  • Visit a National Park, go hiking and enjoy a beautiful view of America
  • Have a backyard BBQ and invite friends

  • Create some fun patriotic chalk art on the sidewalk with the kiddos

  • Have a movie night, make popcorn & watch something patriotic 
  • Visit an ice cream parlor and indulge in a red, white and blueberry treat

No matter what your plans are today, let's try to honor The National Moment of Remembrance. This is an annual event that asks Americans, wherever they are at 3:00 p.m. local time on Memorial Day, to pause for a duration of one minute to remember those who have died in military service to the United States.


Thanks for stopping by the blog. Hope you enjoy your day! πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

NEW! No Place Like Home Scrapbook Album Kit

Happy Friday! Check out my adorable "No Place Like Home" Album! It's in the shape of a little house and it's perfect for pictures of your family, friends, home and everyday memories. I used Doodlebug's new My Happy Place collection and it's super cute. I just love it!

House Shaped Home Scrapbook Mini Album

I designed this album out of black acrylic and it kind of reminds me of the black and white house theme that's so popular now. But inside, this little mini is filled with a tons of happy colors!

Check out the die cuts on the cover. The pink front door (I want one!), the topiaries, the mailbox, the white picket fence and oh my goodness ... the teeny tiny welcome mat! Ha!

Don't forget the quieter (yet just as meaningful) moments that make up our everyday lives. Save pictures of family game night, baking cookies, playing dress-up, wine with friends, BBQs and your beloved pets.

These are all the moments we "chair-ish" so be sure to save them in my sweet No Place Like Home Album. Because one day ... you'll be so glad you did!
