Yippeeee, it's Friday! Look what I have for you! A cute NEW Halloween album titled "Haunting We Will Go". Yep, I'm already looking forward to the holiday & since I love to prepare early, I thought you might like to also. This album is perfect for photos of pumpkins, costumes, trick-or-treating, & all your Halloween memories!

I designed this adorable mini with a black 6x8 binder and Bella Blvd's awesome Spell On You Collection.

The cover has colorful stripes, dots, a cute purple haunted house, fun die cuts (the hoot of owl, lol!), black and white twine, a pretty scalloped teal colored ribbon and a Halloween title. Perfect.

I love, love, love Bella Blvd. It's always been a favorite of mine. The artwork is a little quirky and so much fun ... like this kitty with the wide-set staring eyes, lil cheeks and purple bow tie. So cute!

The album has 20 pages (10 double-sided) that include 3 fold-outs, 2 pockets, and 5 flippies. Lots of room for your spooktacular memories. On the page above, you get 2 for 1 ... a flippie in the front, pocket in the back. Now that's how you maximize space!

Speaking of space, there's room for over 50 photos so you can add memories of a trip to the pumpkin patch, an afternoon carving pumpkins, fun costumes, trick-or-treating, and your amazingly spooky decorations.

Fall often brings carnivals, haunted houses, and corn mazes. Be sure to get pictures of the rides, food, and fun with friends.  Does your child's school or your church plan any fall activities like a festival, a party, or a costume parade? Photo worthy moments!

If you've ever been to Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party at Disney, Universal Studio's Halloween Horror Nights, or Fight Night at 6 Flags ... print those photos and save them here.

NEW! Santa Paws Dog & Cat Scrapbook Albums

It's Friday!! Yesssss! And that means I have 2 NEW kits to share with you today. They're called Santa Paws Dog and Cat and they're all about your best pal and Christmas. I know it may seem early to think about the holiday but it'll be here before you know it. Christmas always sneaks up on me so, I love to be prepared!

Christmas Dog & Cat Scrapbook Albums

I designed these with PhotoPlay's Santa Paws Collection and one of my 4.5" x 7.5" clear acrylic albums. These minis are the perfect size for saving your favorite pet's photos or for gift giving. It makes an amazing handmade present. 

First up, a closer look at my Santa Paws Dog Album ...

Dog Holiday Scrapbook Album with Christmas Tree

How cute is this cover? One silly pup is wreaking havoc on the Christmas tree & the other two are wondering if they're going to be blamed for it. Lol! I'm loving the little scene and the scalloped circle in the background.

Each mini has 16 pages (8 double-sided) and includes all the interactive elements I love, like the "Happy Pawlidays" flippie above, 2 folding pages, and a handy dandy pocket to save memorabilia or extra photos in.

This paper collection is filled with
the traditional red and green holiday colors but there's also a bit of aqua and navy blue. Perfect for a snowy scene!

There are great journaling spots so be sure to document the season with your pet. Did you take a holiday photo with them, buy them a new favorite toy, dress them up in reindeer antlers or a fancy sweater, or take them caroling? Documenting these sweet memories will help you to remember those little moments.  

Next up, my Santa Paws Cat Album ...

The cat album's cover has a few subtle differences. Instead of running off with the lights, the crazy kitty is happily playing IN the mess. Lol! Yep that's my niece's cat, Penny. Blissfully unaware she's done anything wrong, creating mayhem & so happy to be exploring things she shouldn't be. Cats are so funny!

These albums make wonderful gifts for pet parents like your mom or dad, sister, best friend, neighbor, dog walker, babysitter, teacher, hair dresser or co-worker. After all, everyone loves pictures of their fur babies!

Both albums have a pocket, perfect for saving small memorabilia such as a paw print, birth records, pedigree papers, adoption records, pictures of their parents, a piece of their fur, their license or tag, or extra photos.

Seaside Summer Explosion Box with Doodlebug Designs

Helloooo friends! Today, I'm over on Doodlebug's blog sharing my latest Design Team Project. It's a super fun explosion box that can be used as part gift box, part really cool scrapbook. I love these! They are so clever and so much fun to make. Inside there are layers of pages, pockets, and fun places to journal. Check it out ...

Beach Scrapbook Album Explosion Box

To make the box, I used one of Lori Whitlock's amazing cutting files called Pocket Explosion Box. Then, I decorated it with lots of products from Doodlebug's adorable Seaside Summer Collection. (Links below.)

Beach Scrapbook Album Explosion Box with Doodlebug's Seaside Collection

I enlarged the cutting file to fit a 12x12 piece of paper - making the box 3.5" wide x 4" tall. I cut it out of white cardstock, then chose a bunch of fun 12x12 and 6x6 prints to embellish the outside and inside. 

Beach Scrapbook Album Explosion Box with Palm Trees and beach house

This is such a fun way to save pictures. You could fill this with summer vacation photos and keep it forever ... OR give it as a gift to someone you traveled with. What a thoughtful, handmade (and unique) keepsake!

Beach Scrapbook Album Explosion Box with pages

When you lift off the lid, the 4 sides unfold to display all these amazing layers. There are pages with photo mats, journaling cards, and 4 little envelopes. In the very center, I added the Beach in a Bottle Shaker-pops but you could also tuck a small gift in there like ... a beautiful seashell, jewelry or a small toy.

Be sure to include lots of journaling spots like this one so you can write about your fun memories and document the location, names, or dates. Check out those cute enamel flip flops!

Beach Scrapbook Album Explosion Box with doodlebug's seaside collection & small envelope

This explosion box has 3 double sided pages per side plus space inside 4 envelopes. I made the envelopes out of the pretty 12x12 Island Topics paper. I tucked 3x4 cards into each one but forgot to take a photos!

Beach Scrapbook Album with journaling card, sun, beach house

Beach vacations, a cruise, an island adventure, boating, building sandcastles, playing in the sun, surfing and enjoying cocktails by the water ... just a few photo ideas for this project. 

Beach Scrapbook Album with palm tree and seagull bird

All of the die cuts in this collection are so cute!! I used the palm tree and pelican on this page but there are so many great ones to choose from - cottages, sea creatures, boats, bicycles, seashells and much more.

I absolutely adore this Seaside Summer collection. It's filled with beautiful colors, a tropical theme, and the cutest embellishments. I hope this project inspires you to create something wonderful. Happy crafting!

Calculator Box Card with Lori Whitlock

Hey scrappers! Today, I have a new project for you that's perfect for the back-to-school season. It's a box card in the shape of a little calculator! You could sneak this into your child's backpack or lunch box on their first day for a fun surprise. Such a sweet way to send a little encouragement & support. It's also great for a teacher or ... a co-worker that's great with numbers. What a nice way to brighten their day!

Calculator Box Greeting Card with Apple, Pencil, & Star

I just love the smiling face and pink cheeks. So cute! I made this using one of Lori Whitlock's wonderful cutting files called Box Card Calculator School

I chose a star patterned paper for the base called Balloons, from Echo Park's A Magical Place collection. Then I used some solid papers from Echo Park's Fun On The Farm Collection for the apple, pencil, and the star (product links below).

When the box is opened, there is space between the layers where you could add a gift card, a small note, or money. But since there's no bottom to the card, you would need to use a little tape to keep it in place.

The card folds flat so it can be put in an envelope, sent through the mail or stored as a memento. Lori has so many awesome cutting files, I hope you'll give this one a try. Below are the product links. Have a great day!
