What about pictures of the littles having fun outside, riding bikes, selling lemonade, playing in the sprinklers, sharing popsicles with a friend, or a neighborhood ballgame? Oh ... this makes me want it to be summer now.

This pocket is so cute with all the pink and sprinkles. It's the perfect spot for saving a summer recipe (like homemade ice cream), a postcard from a trip, brochures from a fun activity, concert or festival tickets, a small map from a fun adventure, or extra photos.

New Cat & Dog Scrapbook Albums with Doodlebug

Hey guys! I'm calling today Fur Baby Friday because I've just added 2 paw-sitively adorable NEW pet albums to the shop! They're made with Doodlebug's latest collections and they're SO CUTE! I have a cat album titled, Here Kitty Kitty and a dog album titled, Hello Furry Friend. They're wonderful for saving photos of your sweet pet and they make amazing gifts. I think you're going to love them.

Dog & Cat Scrapbook Albums By Artsy Albums

These scrapbooks were designed with Doodlebug's new Pretty Kitty and Doggone Cute Collections and a square 6.5" x 6.5" Prima album.

Cat Scrapbook Album created with Doodlebug's Pretty Kitty Collection

Inside each album, there are 12 pages that include 3 fold-out pages, 2 pockets, a waterfall element page (see dog pics below), and 6 fun flippies like the one above.

I've added lots of space to document your pet's wonderfully silly moments. On this page, I made a journaling card into a flippie so there's room for a photo on the outside and note taking on the inside.

Cats can be so, so funny! Be sure to take pictures of those moments like ... the zoomies, stuffing themselves into very small weird places, and pouncing & batting at anything in their path.

And when they're quiet, they can be the best napping buddies. Don't forget some selfies when they're cuddling, sleeping in a funny position, or snuggled up with their kitty siblings.

Both albums have 2 pockets each that are perfect for extra photos, a paw print, birth records, pedigree papers, vet reports, pics of their parents, tags, license, adoption papers, a piece of their fur, awards or certificates, and any other memorabilia.

Next up is my dog album titled, Hello Furry Friend -

Another super sweet little cover but this time there are 4 playful, goofy, and howling pups. The album is very similar to the kitty one, it just has a different color scheme.

What a great page for your pup's first photos. Whether you adopted them from a shelter, a friend, a neighbor, a breeder, or ... off the streets - save your photos from day 1 so you'll always remember them.

Graduation Scrapbook Album & 12x12 pages with Bella Blvd

Happy Friday everyone! It's the end of the week (whoo hooo!) and it's time to share my newest scrapbook kits. I have two for you today and they are all about graduation! Yep, it's that time of year when families and friends come together to celebrate our wonderful student's accomplishments. 

The first kit is an album .... 

Graduation Scrapbook Album with Bella Blvd Cap and Gown Collection

I designed this with Bella Blvd's amazing Cap and Gown Collection and a 6.5" x 4.5" black acrylic album.

Graduation Scrapbook Album with an acrylic title and hats

The front cover has an acrylic title that was designed by Sophie Gallo. I love the celebratory pose the graduate has with the print of the caps flying in the background. So good!

Inside, there are 16 pages that include 2 pockets, 4 fold-out pages, 6 fun interactive flippies, and space for at least 38 photos. Perfect for a fun filled weekend!

Graduation scrapbook mini album page with tassels, books, and a globe

This has a black and white color scheme but, you can totally customize the pages by substituting the some of the cardstock mats with paper in your own school's colors. You can also change up the ribbons for a more personalized gift.

Graduation scrapbook mini album page with best friends wearing their cap and gown

It's a perfect keepsake for graduates from kindergarten to high school. Even a college grad would love saving pictures of their special event in here!

Take photos of the cap and gown, school campus, the walk across the stage, family that was there to celebrate, and the special dinner or graduation party. What great moments!

I love this pocket with the students on the front. Each one is a little different from the next but they all have those cute little circle cheeks. Lol! You can save a copy of their diploma, the program, extra photos, or other memorabilia here.

The friendships your child made in school could be ones that last forever. Be sure to capture their sweet moments together as they celebrate.

The second kit is for all of you that love 12x12 layouts!  This kit has 4 12x12 pages, that create two coordinating 2-page layouts. You can fit up to 21 photos on these 4 pages and they are super easy to assemble.

The papers used on these pages are also from Bella's Cap and Gown collection, but the die cuts are from Doodlebug's Hat's Off collection from a few years back.

I love the silver foil accents on the die cuts and some of the pieces are acetate ... so fun!  These add a bit of shine to the layouts, even if you can't see it well in the photos.

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Layouts

Hey guys! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter with family and friends. I'm guessing you have some great photos from the weekend. Yay! Time to print and scrap those memories!! Today's project is a simple 2-page layout idea that's perfect for your holiday pictures. Take a look ...

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layouts with chicks, baskets, eggs, and a bunny rabbit

I designed these with paper from
PhotoPlay's Hop To It Collection. Then, I added lots of embellishments from six different Doodlebug collections - Easter Parade, Hoppy Easter, Hippity Hoppity, Simply Spring, Sunkissed, and Easter Express (links below). 

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with Easter baskets, flowers, and a sunshine shaker

For both layouts, I started with a sheet of Doodlebug's textured card stock in bubblegum, then layered white card stock on top. 

On this first page, I added space for 2 photos using pretty 12x12 PhotoPlay prints. They're perfect spots for pictures of an Easter egg hunt, family gatherings, the Easter Bunny, baskets filled with goodies, a brunch or dinner, and the family dressed in their Sunday best.

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with Easter baskets, a chick, flowers, and a sun shaker

Check out the cute Sunsational Shaker-pops in the upper corner. The little Easter baskets, the egg hunt sign, and the Easter title are all icon stickers from the Hoppy Easter Collection. And ... the butterfly and the sweet chick are a Doodle-pops called Beak-A-Boo from the Hippity Hoppity Collection. 

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with flowers, a bird, and a birdhouse

I used the Alphabet Soup stickers in swimming pool for the year. The branch and birdhouse are icon stickers from the Easter Parade Collection. And the sweet little bird is a mini Doodle-pops called Blue Jays from the Easter Express Collection. 

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with Easter baskets, a chick, and green grass washi tape

I added the green grass washi tape behind the baskets. It's from the Sunkissed collection. How cute!

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with butterflies, flowers, chicks, and a bunny rabbit

The next layout is filled with more flowers and butterflies and I added space for 3 more photos.
There's even a little lined journaling spot that's perfect for names, the date, event, location, etc.

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with butterflies, flowers, and chicks

Look at the rainbow scalloped border sticker I added below the photo mat. I thought the pretty colors were perfect on this page. It's from the Hoppy Easter This and That sticker sheet.

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout with butterflies, flowers, chicks, and a bunny rabbit

I added more chicks from the Beak-A-Boo Doodle-pops, washi tape, and icon stickers (eggs, sign, and Bunny title from the Hoppy Easter Collection). That leaping bunny with the sweet smile might be my favorite.

12x12 Easter Scrapbook Page Layout for photos of the holiday, egg hunt, easter bunny, & family

Here's what the 2 layouts look like side-by-side. I think they turned out pretty cute! 

AND!!! These pages would pair perfectly with the 2 layouts I made in 2022!! They use the same paper collection - click HERE to see those. Happy scrappin'!
