2 NEW Fall Scrapbook Album Kits!

Hello everyone & happy Friday! Today, I have 2 exciting kits to share with you. They're perfect for the fall season yet very different from each other in the best ways. You can pick your favorite or ... buy them both! 🧡

Fall Scrapbooks By Artsy Albums for autumn photos

First up ... is my clear acrylic scrapbook titled "Happy Together". It's a beautiful mini album that's perfect for your favorite photos of fall, family, home, a vacation or your wonderful Thanksgiving Day memories. 

Fall Happy Together Scrapbook Album

I designed it with the Simple Stories, Vintage Country Harvest collection and my custom 4x7 inch Scallop Edge Acrylic Album. The cute scallops run down one side of the front and back covers. This acrylic album comes in the kit but it's also available separately in my shop and can be used for ANY scrapbook project.

Fall Scrapbook Album with Wood Leaf Charm

I added a laser cut wooden leaf charm, twine and plaid ribbon to the top book ring. Love the little detail!

Fall Scrapbook Album Pages with leaves, flowers,  and butterfly

Inside there are 12 pages that include 2 fold-outs, 3 flippies, 1 pocket and space for 20+ photos. The autumn colors in this collection are really pretty and I love the little butterflies here and there throughout the album.

The pocket has cards inside that you can use as mats for photos or journaling. It's also a perfect spot for a favorite fall recipe, a special greeting card, or tickets.

Fall Scrapbook Album for photos of family and friend

The smaller size and shape of this album makes it a unique present for someone or ... an amazing hostess gift for Thanksgiving! Such a great idea and a really nice way to show your appreciation. And after the holiday, they will have a keepsake to fill with photos from the day.

You could also dedicate this album to pictures from a vacation. Maybe you're exploring a new city or a National park. Take photos of the changing leaves and all the fun you're having with friends and family.

Next up, is my slightly larger album titled "Fall". This beautiful scrapbook will be a preorder and begin shipping mid October, if not sooner.

Fall Autumn Scrapbook Album for friend and family photos

I designed this one with the Simple Stories, Harvest Market Collection and a pretty 6x8 inch teal binder. So, the size is larger and it has twice as many pages! There are 24 that include 3 fold-out pages, 2 pockets, and 6 fun interactive flippies.

The inside cover sets the tone with a cheerful greeting. I love the Hello Autumn card! There's also an interesting spot for journaling and lots of colorful pumpkins.

With the change in seasons, comes fun activities and new photo opportunities! Here are some fall activity ideas that would be great for this album ...

... a fall festival, the pumpkin patch, Halloween, apple picking, a corn maze, a high school homecoming parade, football games, Thanksgiving, and all the colorful outdoor changes. It’s a wonderful time for pictures.

And this larger sized album can definitely handle all the fun! It has space for 60+ photos so be sure to take pictures, print them (people tend to forget this part, lol), and save them in this beautiful fall keepsake.

With 2 pockets, you can add holiday recipes, tickets from an activity or event, brochures, postcards, sweet love notes or even a few colorful dried leaves. 

Thanks for stopping by and happy fall y'all!

12x12 Great Outdoors Page #2 with Doodlebug

Hello scrappers! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team project. It's a cute 12x12 companion page for the layout I created on September 15th. Since I know lots of you love double-page layouts, I created it's mate! In case you missed the first page, here's what it looked like ... 

Great Outdoors 12x12 Scrapbook Page

With the fall season upon us, the Great Outdoors Collection was perfect for this page. It works for everyday photos, camping, hiking, vacations in the mountains, a trip to a National park, or simply enjoying nature.

And ... here's the new second page! I like to make the layouts look like they flow together. So for this one, I started by using the same woodgrain paper for the base, then layered a piece of the Happy Camper paper on the left side of the page to follow the design of page 1.

Then I added the blue plaid (called Sleeping Bag) on the right side of the page to tie into the plaid mat and cute trees. I also used the same mat colors on this page, and the pretty floral print for a cohesive look. Perfect for 4 more photos!

A note about the die cuts I used on both pages:  In my last post I told you I used Odds & Ends from the Great Outdoors. I did, but when creating this second page, I realized that some of the odds & ends were actually from the Pumpkin Spice collection. So sorry for this confusion, but it's one reason I love Doodlebug so much ... all of the collections coordinate so well together and I love mixing and matching!

12x12 Hearth & Home Autumn Layouts

Hi everyone! If you follow me on social media, you may have noticed that I recently traveled to Salt Lake City to attend the Simple Stories Get Creative Retreat. It was just amazing and there were so many wonderful classes. Today, I thought I'd share two 12x12 layouts that I made in one of them. 

12x12 Hearth and Home Fall Scrapbook Page Layouts

These pages were designed for a class taught by Jodi Sanford (@makeaprettylife). She used the gorgeous Simple Stories collection called Hearth & Home. I changed up a few small details to make it my own, but overall I loved her designs!

12x12 Hearth and Home Fall Scrapbook Page Layout for autumn photos

For these autumn inspired layouts, we used 12x12 pattern papers, Bits & Pieces, Page Pieces, self-adhesive brads, and a few sheets from the 6x8 paper pad (product links below).

If you need a little extra spot to journal, you could always turn the black floral paper into a pocket so the cute striped tag could be removable. Perfect for dates, locations, people's names or ... a meaningful story.

12x12 Fall Scrapbook Page Layout with heart for autumn photos

Love this patchwork heart.

Aren't these earthy fall colors beautiful? They look so good mixed with the black and woodgrain papers.

New! Family & Fall Scrapbook Kits

Hello my friends!  I got home from the Simple Stories (AMAZING) Get Creative retreat on Sunday night and have spent the week shipping, and planning, and ordering, and cutting, and packaging, and assembling, and all the things!  So, I'm super excited to share my TWO new kits with you today.

First up ... a new Pumpkin Spice 12x12 page kit.  Six pages, an adorable Doodlebug collection, and a full package of coordinating Odds & Ends die cuts!  What's not to love with this one?  So fun!

I've also included the adorable journaling cards that go with the collection, because you know me ... it's all about the pictures and the STORY!  So, each layout has a spot for journaling about the pumpkin patch, the fall decorations, the chilly walks through the corn field, the pumpkin spice latte from your favorite coffee shop ... or times spent together with friends and family. 

Okay ... so I could go on and on about this cute page kit but I need to also tell you about my second kit!!!

I'm excited to introduce my Best Family Ever!!  Oh my goodness, I LOVE this one!

Fall Pumpkin Window Flip Card With Lori Whitlock

Hey guys! I'm over on Lori Whitlock's blog today sharing this pretty fall inspired card I created it with one of Lori's super fun cutting files called Window Flip Card Pumpkin. It's 4.25"x5.5" and it would be great for someone to welcome in the new season, as a thank you, a get well soon, or to let them know you're thinking of them.

Fall Pumpkin Card By Artsy Albums using a SVG File

I started with white cardstock for the base, then chose some fall colored papers from Echo Park's Fun On The Farm 6x6 paper pad. I love the smaller sized prints for this project. I used a 12x12 orange solid from Echo Park's Easter Wishes Collection and a 12x12 yellow solid (flower) from the Fun on the Farm Collection.

Fall Pumpkin Card By Artsy Albums using a SVG File

Here's what it looks like opened up. I love how it props up for display. If you'll look closely, I added a glitter enamel dot to the yellow flower and some sprinkles for the berries on the branches. Such pretty little details.

The pumpkin card inside flips up to create an easel effect. Perfect for sitting out for display on your desk, an accent table in your home, or on a shelf as a little fall decor.

There is a simple tutorial for assembling the card here, but I took some close up pictures of the flip detail and copied some of Kathy's original instructions below.


Start with the piece with the 3 score lines. Fold all the score lines in the same direction. Add adhesive to one end section. Fold the whole piece in half… adhesive on the outside. Attach this piece to the bottom half of the open card base. It should be centered, and the piece with the adhesive should be facing down and closest to the fold in the card. Once this is in place, add a strip of adhesive on the section closest to the card fold.

Fold the card closed and press so that the top of the card is firmly attached to the folded section.  Now, when you open the card, you will have a squared tube inside the card.  Next, fold the small tab along the score line.  Cover the smaller side of the tab with adhesive.


Adhere this small piece to the top of the squared tube, centering it.  You want the remaining tab to be sticking up furthest away from the fold. 


Adhere the pumpkin panel to the adhesive on the white tab and add foam tape as shown in the photo below.

How fun! I love this card and can't wait to give it to someone this season. You can find this cutting file in Lori's SVG shop or in the Silhouette Design store with the links below. Thanks for stopping by!
