Happy Friday friends!  I'm always excited to introduce you to my newest kit each week, but I'm especially excited about today's new album!  This is Hello Paradise ... and it is truly one of my favorite kits ever!

Summer Scrapbook Album with Sun & Beach Houses
 
To purchase the instructions for this album visit:
 
From the colors, to the patterns, to the adorable beach houses ... this book is just so much fun!  I started with a teal Simple Stories binder album, and layered white card stock throughout so that all of the Doodlebug Seaside Summer cuteness would really pop.

The album is 6x8", has 24 pages (12 double-sided), includes 2 fold-out pages, 2 pockets, 7 flippies, and lots of adorable die cuts.

This album will be perfect for any summer vacation, trip to the beach, drinks by the pool, or  island adventure.  Maybe you've taken boardwalk photos, gone on a cruise, boating or sightseeing along the coast. I even added a few gold gems throughout the album to give it a little sunny shine!

NEW! Where The Wild Thing Are Scrapbook Album

Happy Friday! Today, I have a new scrapbook called Where The Wild Things Are and it's filled with butterflies, ferns and all things found in nature. It's perfect for photos of any outdoor adventure like a summer vacation, time spent at the lake, hiking in the woods, boating, and enjoying the fresh air.

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album Kit

I designed and cut this beautiful 6x8 inch album out of wood (perfect for a nature album) and used a sturdy, heavy-weight cream cardstock for the inside pages. I always use high quality materials in my albums so they're sure to last as long as your memories do, lol!

Outdoor Scrapbook Album Page with mushrooms

I chose the Simple Stories Vintage Lakeside Collection and I love how organic and natural it feels. The papers have images of leaves, mushrooms, butterflies, ducks, fish, moose, bears, plaids, and stripes. The colors are earthy and include green, brown, terracotta, teal, and sky blue.

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album Page with ferns

This album could be used for lots of different photos but I thought it would be perfect for a summer trip to the lake. Ahhhh, so peaceful. Time to unplug from our busy lives and enjoy Mother Earth.  

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album Page with butterflies

Add pictures of the cabin your staying at, the sunrise, and the beautiful views from the porch. Take a morning hike and get photos of the waterfall, streams, changing foliage, and selfies with your hiking buddy. With 12 pages (6 double-sided) and space for 30+ photos, there's plenty of room for your special moments.

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album with folding page

If you're camping ... awesome! Add photos of your campsite, tent or RV, time spent exploring, building a campfire, roasting marshmallows, story telling, and star gazing at night.   

This would also be great for your kids sleepaway camp pictures. Fun times with friends and all the outdoor activities could be saved here for an amazing keepsake for them.

Lake Vacation Scrapbook Album Page with trees and canoe

If you live at the lake and spend a lot of time boating ... you need this album. Add memories of family gatherings, an afternoon on the boat, tubing with the littles, or a weekend of fishing with friends.

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album Page with pocket and journaling cards

The kit comes with lots of foam stickers like the "Lake Life" one above so, you'll have extras left over. Create this album exactly like I did, or ... change up the titles to suit your needs. Be creative and have fun with it!

Outdoor Adventure Scrapbook Album Page with bear and pocket

Check out this kraft colored envelope. It's perfect for storing extra photos, journaling cards, or notes. You can also add small memorabilia like a map, business cards, or brochures from a fun activity (river rafting, tubing, ATV rides, etc.).

I hope you're enjoying some time away in nature this summer. Thanks for stopping by the blog today & happy scrappin'!

My Happy Place Mini Album with Doodlebug Design

Hey friends! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project - a new circle window album! It uses Doodlebug's adorable My Happy Place Collection, a Shadow Box Insert Kit, and my own black Acrylic Circle Window Album. The instructions and the black acrylic album are available in my shop (links below). This project is perfect for photos of family, friends and fun times at home.

My happy place family home scrapbook album with sticker collage

I started with my 8x8 inch black acrylic album but you make this out of chipboard or card stock instead. The circle window in the cover is just the right size for this sweet round sticker collage.

Look how cute it is with the rhinestone gems and the little enamel sprinkles! I love all the details.

My happy place family home scrapbook album with stickers

Have you had a chance to play with these Shadow Box Insert Kits yet? If not ... I highly recommend. The kit comes with a circle template, card stock, vellum and tons of stickers to create this collage. It's so much fun. You place the stickers on the vellum with the help of a template behind it. I love these. This is my fourth album using them. (Instructions for those are available in my shop as well.)

My happy place family scrapbook page with houses and flowers

The pages inside are filled with My Happy Place cuteness. This one has a folding element for extra photo space. When you flip open the side panel, it looks like this ...

I added die cuts from the Odds and Ends and Chit Chat. I love the house with the flower covered roof and that yellow polka dot car. Wouldn't this mat be perfect for a family photo?

My happy place family scrapbook page with pocket and journaling cards

I used a pretty mix of prints on the pocket page above and included some 4x4 element cards to the pocket. You can add photos to the backside of these or use them for journaling.

This mini album is super fun to make and this paper collection is so happy. It's bright and cheerful and it has everything you need to highlight your family photos. It even has die cuts for your sweet furry friends! 

If you'd like to create this scrapbook ... the acrylic circle window album and the instructions are in my shop (links below). 

I also have some other themes using Doodlebug's Shadow Box Insert Kits. I have Halloween, Disney, Baby, and Recipe.

Happy scrappin'!

Wallet Mini Album with Lori Whitlock

Hey there! If you follow me, then you know I love making mini albums. All shapes, all sizes, all themes ... love, love, love. So for my project today, I made a mini using one of Lori's cutting files that's in the shape of an adorable little wallet. This is so cute and interactive, soooo yeah ... it's right up my alley! I've added a video at the bottom of the page - so be sure to check it out. 💗

Wallet Shaped Mini Album with rainbows

I chose the Echo Park, All About A Girl Collection, also designed by Lori Whitlock. The pattern papers in this collection are so pretty with flowers, rainbows, plaids, and bows. And to create the little closure, I added 2 brads and some yellow twine.

Wallet Shaped Mini Album with fold out pages and pockets

The wallet is a tri-fold and once it's opened you'll see it has 3 sections. The top part has space for 3 small photos and the middle section has two fold-out pages that open up to either side.

Scrapbook Mini Album with fold out pages and pockets

Look how cute these are with these girly prints! Each side holds 6 photos on the front and back.

Wallet shaped Scrapbook Mini Album with fold out pages and pockets

You can add a larger photo or 2 smaller ones to the center pink photo mat and down below, 2 little pockets!

I added pieces from the Ephemera Frames and Tags to each pocket. Die cut shapes with fun sayings are perfect for journaling on. Just flip them over and add dates, names, locations or sweet stories about the event or photo.

Lori has so many awesome cutting files to play with and I hope you'll give this one a try. Have fun!

Ice Cream Truck Mini Album

Hey scrappers! Sunday was National Ice Cream Day and it got me thinking about how cute an ice cream truck mini album would be. So ... I made one! You could add photos of an ice cream party, a trip to the ice cream shop with the kiddos, a birthday, or an evening at a food truck festival!

Ice Cream Truck Scrapbook Album By Artsy Albums

Isn't it cute and kinda funny? I don't know why but this one made me laugh. I designed it using a cutting file from Doodlebug's Sweet Summer collection called Ice Cream Truck (link below). I cut the truck shaped album covers out of white acrylic but you could use cardstock instead.

Ice Cream Food Truck Scrapbook Album

I chose a colorful mix of papers. I used prints from Doodlebug's Sweet Summer collection and Bella Blvd's, Besties Graph/Dot and Hearts/Ombre. On the cover, the little scalloped border sticker with rainbow dots is from the Sweet Summer This and That. I used mini icon stickers for the ice cream in the window and some foam tape behind the awning to give it dimension. 

Ice Cream Food Truck Scrapbook Album Page with cart and umbrella

On this page, I used the Bella Besties Graph paper in Gulf for the background, then added a flower mat and the ice cream cart die cut from the Sweet Summer Odds and Ends.

Ice Cream Truck Scrapbook Album Page with flowers and snow cone

This Gulf Ombre paper is double sided and has cute hearts on the reverse side. I love great patterns that can do double duty! The fun saying is something me and my cousins use to chant when we were on our way to the ice cream shop during family vacations. So, I had to add that, lol! It's from the Sweet Summer Chit Chat.

Ice Cream Truck Scrapbook Album Page with hearts

I'm loving the pink color (called punch) of the Bella Besties Heart paper. It looks so cute with the pretty plaid. Added a few more die cuts and ... another page is ready for a photo!

Ice Cream Truck Scrapbook Album Page with folding card

Here, I layered 2 Bella Besties in Dot (Cotton Candy) and Graph (Gulf), then I made a super cute flippie with a 4x3 inch card. Inside, there an even tinier ice cream print! It's adorable!

Truck Scrapbook Album Page with cocktails & mixed drinks

This is a great page to show you how you could make a food truck album with ANY theme using different papers. So, if you go to a festival or "Food Truck Friday" with friends, you could have a Mexican themed page, or burgers, noodles, or cupcakes! I personally love the cocktails, lol! But use your imagination, be creative and make these pages appropriate for your photos.

What ever theme you choose, this little album would make a great place for your memories. Below are some of the products I used that are still available. Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!

NEW! Memories At The Park Album

It's Fridaaaay!! And that means I've added not 1, but 2 NEW kits to the shop ... and both have castle themes! Yesterday, I shared my beach sand castle shaped mini album and today, I'm introducing a new Disney inspired album titled Memories At The Park. I've posted a few cover shots - now it's time to see the inside.

Disney theme park inspired scrapbook album with castle
 
To purchase the instructions for this album visit:

I designed this album with the Simple Stories, Say Cheese At The Park Collection and the matching 6x8 inch binder. It's a big one at 2 inches thick. I've added so many amazing pages with space for over 100 photos! And that's not a typo, lol ... 100+!

In the kit, everything is already pre-cut for you and packaged by page. It's organized, simple and so fun! This is a huge value for what I've packed into this album. Wait until you see ...

Disney scrapbook album page with fireworks and flags

There are 6 tabbed pages that create sections for each of the "themed lands" of Disney. They include:

  • Magic
  • Main Street
  • Fantasy
  • Tomorrow
  • Adventure
  • Frontier

Disney scrapbook album page with folding card

There are 52 pages (26 double-sided) that include 2 fold-out pages, 8 pages with pockets, and 10 flippies.

Disney scrapbook album page with a pocket and balloons
 
For the Main Street section - you could add photos of the storefronts, the parade, horse and trolley, singing barbershop quartet, cast members selling balloons, and the castle in the background. Don't worry, this album has room for it all!

Disney scrapbook album page with mouse ears & train
 
Fun fact: the Walt Disney Railroad uses 4 meticulously restored, vintage steam trains that were originally built between 1916-1928. These are an amazing piece of history so be sure to get a few photos on one. They take you on a relaxing 1.5 mile scenic trip around the park for about 20 minutes. Longest ride in Disney, lol!

Disney scrapbook album page with castle and flying elephant

Next up ... Fantasyland where you'll find the iconic castle. This was said to be Walt Disney's favorite land.

Disney scrapbook album page with balloons
 
Any of your photos would look great on this pretty folding page. Add pictures of the princesses and fun rides like the Alice in Wonderland Tea Cups, Dumbo, Peter Pan, Winnie the Pooh, or the Seven Dwarfs Mine Ride. Don't forget the spectacular evening fireworks.

Disney scrapbook album page with pocket, stars, and a race car
 
I love this star-covered pocket. Perfect for saving extra photos or memorabilia like your park map, character autographs, postcards, stickers, room key or park pass.
 
Do you see the gears, yellow driver's license and race car on the pages above? Great for photos of the Tomorrowland Speedway. 

Disney scrapbook album page with jungle theme and tiki
 
This section is ideal for memories from Adventureland. Include pictures from the Jungle Cruise ride, Swiss Family Treehouse, the Tiki Room and getting a Dole Whip treat. Yum!
 
Disney scrapbook album page with pirate gear, flag, and ship's wheel

Ahoy Mateys! There's a page for photos of the pirate themed ride, Captain Jack Sparrow, or trying on some pirate gear in the gift shop.

Disney scrapbook album page with haunted mansion

And there's another page for photos of the Haunted Mansion. Did you know that t
he crypts and tombstones outside are marked with humorous epitaphs in honor of Disney's own Imagineers? That's pretty cool.
 
Disney scrapbook album kit
 
If you'll look closely at the cover, you'll see I've added a custom cut acrylic "Memories" title. These are part of the kit but also available to purchase individually in my shop!  So ... what do you think? This one was so much fun to put together. I can't wait to fill mine with photos! 
 
Update: The album kit has sold out but I've added the links for the Instructions and the products used below. My instructions are simple, step-by-step and include measurements and full color photos of each page. Happy scrappin'!
