Hot Air Balloon Mini Album with Doodlebug

Hi sweet friends! Today, I'm sharing my latest Doodlebug Design Team Project. It's an acrylic mini album shaped like a little hot air balloon! How cute is that?! I was inspired by Doodlebug's Hello Again Collection and it's hot air balloon cutting file. I thought it would make a great mini for photos of friends, family, a birthday, summer, a vacation, hot air balloon ride, spring, a new baby, or everyday moments.

I cut the covers out of white acrylic but you could easily use card stock or chipboard instead. I chose some pretty solid papers for the balloon and a Bazzill metallic gold for the details. Love, love, love the gold!

The sticker on the balloon is from the This and That sheet. The saying was perfect but it had a bicycle on it, so ... I made a small mat to cover it and added
the sun, clouds, and heart from the mini icon stickers

Inside, I created 6 white card stock pages and covered each one with a pretty 12x12 print. I punched out two circles (3" and 3.5") for some of the photo mats and used 6x6 pattern papers on a few of them.

Now for the really fun part ... the embellishing!! I added lots of die cuts and enamel shape sprinkles throughout. See if you can spot the sprinkles above - flowers, a butterfly, and gold leaves. So pretty!

This mini would make such a unique handmade gift. Make it for someone and let them add their own pictures, or ... fill it ahead of time with photos of your fun moments together. They would keep this forever.

I even added places to journal like this cute pink clipboard and yellow circle. These are great for listing names, dates, ages, locations, or events. Some day, you could forget those things, lol!

I mixed up the mat shapes and sizes for interest but you can customize them for your own photos. When decorating the pages, I looked for pieces that fit into the negative spaces and in this photo ... the LOVE and the cute telephone did the trick!
