New! Let's Get Away Travel Mini Album

It's Friday (yay!) and that means I have a fun NEW scrapbook kit in the shop! We're knee-deep into summer when most of us have plans to travel so, today's mini album is perfect for saving those vacation photos. It's titled Let's Get Away and it's filled with rainbow colors, lots of travel icons, and a universal theme. 

Let's Get Away Travel Scrapbook Album by Artsy Albums

For this project, I created a brand new 3.5" x 8.5" white acrylic album titled Skinny Acrylic Mini Album.

I also used the Paige Evans Adventurous Collection designed
for American Crafts. It has beautiful gold foil accents that I love, flowers, butterflies, maps, suitcases, airplanes, boats, bicycles, hot air balloons, & more. So, all types of travel are covered!

Inside, there are 16 pages that include 2 fold-out pages, 2 pockets, 5 flippies, and 4 fun insert pieces (2 postcards, a tag, and a file card for journaling). So many goodies! And did you see the airplane made of flowers above? So pretty.

Just look at all the beautiful colors and patterns on these pages. On the left, I attached a cute tag that makes a fun folding element. And on the right, an entire fold-out page that opens up to reveal ...

... photo mats, pink daisies, and another great spot to journal about your adventures!

I love small details like this tag with the cute pink camper (I want a pink camper!), the polka dot ribbons, the patterned page tabs (LOVE the daisies), and the file card for journaling. Details matter, so be sure to document some specifics about your travels. One day ... you'll be glad you did. :)

This album would be great for pictures of a quick weekend away, a fun adventure in the city, traveling abroad, a road trip, a spa weekend with the girls, a cruise, or any sightseeing trip ... anywhere!

Check out this new flippie page! Yep, that's right ... PAGE! It's 3 photo mats that are attached only on the left side. So, these mats free swingin' and make a interesting space for 6 photos (front & back).

And finally, no Artsy Albums mini would be complete without a cute little pocket. I added a purple frame with flowers to the front, and inside ... a few journaling cards and photo mats. 

I hope you're all enjoying a little vacation time this summer with family and friends. My NEW Let's Get Away Mini Album makes the perfect keepsake for those memories. 

Hop over to my shop to get yours today along with my Acrylic Display Stand (see in the photo above). These are great for showing off your shaped and acrylic mini albums in your home, office, or business. Have a great day! 😊

Lighthouse Shaped Mini Album with Doodlebug

Hi sweet friends! It's time for another Doodlebug Design Team Project and today, I have a fun little lighthouse shaped mini album for you. Its coastal theme is great for saving summer photos of the beach, a boardwalk, a day of boating, or a lighthouse with an amazing view. Take a look ...

Lighthouse Shaped Scrapbook Mini Album for summer, beach, and boating photos

Isn't this cute? I used a Doodlebug cutting file called Lighthouse 2 and sized the shape to 3.25" x 10". I cut the front and back covers out of white acrylic but you could make these out of white cardstock instead. I love the cupola at the top, the catwalk, and the "rope" railing at the bottom. Great details!

I decorated the album with the adorable Seaside Summer Collection. I chose the blue 12x12 Surf's Up print for the main tower section, then filled in the smaller spaces with a few colorful prints from the 6x6 paper pad.

To make the lantern sparkle, I added a few mini jewels. And the pretty scalloped flower border and the rainbow striped heart are stickers from the This & That sheet.

The icons stickers were the perfect size for this mini album so, I added the cute little seagull to the railing. The word bubble is from the Chit Chat.

On the inside of the front cover, I added the pink beach house icon sticker, a 2x3 card from the 6x6 paper pad, and a few more Chit Chat pieces. Next, I cut 6 pages out of white cardstock and covered each one in 12x12 pattern papers.

I made photo mats for each page using the smaller 6x6 prints. And above, I included the adorable summer memories journaling card. It's also from the 6x6 paper pad.

Wouldn't these pages be great filled with pictures of a summer vacation, family and friends, the beach, swimming, snorkeling, hunting for seashells, and building sand castles?

Or ... what about a boating trip, a day of fishing, renting wave runners, or exploring a boardwalk? It all sounds so fun! And speaking of fun, how cute is this little blue whale? He's a puffy icon sticker and I just love him.

Have you visited a lighthouse on your travels? The stairs are exhausting but the view is amazing! Once you're at the top, catch your breath and take some pictures. You'll be so glad you did. 


Here, I used the 2x2 cards from the 6x6 paper pad to create 2 small flippies. These are so cute and super practical. Now I can fit 4 photos on this page instead of just 2!

On the page above, I added 3 round die cut pieces from the Chit Chat to use as photo mats. (The white circles represent your pictures.)

Camera Mini Album with Box - July Blog Hop with Lori Whitlock

Hello friends! Today is Lori Whitlock's July Blog Hop and my blog is the first stop on the hop. But be sure to visit Lori's site too because she has a sale and more great products for you!

For my project today, I made a Disney themed camera shaped mini album that tucks inside a suitcase box! Ha! How fun is that?! I used one of Lori's fabulous cutting files called Matchbox Magical Mini Album (link below) and it makes the cutest little keepsake.

The album is perfect for photos of a theme park vacation, cruise, or birthday party. I created it with the Echo Park, A Magical Voyage Collection designed by Lori. I also used this collection for my Cruise Mini Album & Altoid Tin, which was another really fun project.

Suitcase shaped storage box with a castle and a Disney theme

Let's start with the matchbox style suitcase. I made the base of it out of black cardstock. The file comes with the castle shape, a carrying handle on top, and a luggage tag that I attached with twine. Then, I added patterned paper and a few brads to the handle for an extra detail.

Inside, there's a sliding "drawer" that fits in the sleeve of the box. The mini album sits perfectly in this space.

This camera shaped scrapbook is so small and so cute. I added blue and white gingham ribbons to bind the pages and they match the pattern paper in the center perfectly. Love that!

To make the album, I cut out 5 pages using my Silhouette machine but you could add more if you'd like. I used different 12x12 solid and pattern papers from the collection for these. (Links below.)

I added 3.5"x 2.5" photo mats to each page and embellished with stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet.

Here's a fun idea ... wouldn't this be a great way to surprise the kiddos with news of an upcoming vacation?! You could make each child one and add their name to the luggage tag. Then they could save their own photos from the trip and have a special memento from your time together!

It's Funday Friday and I have 2 great kits in the shop for you today! First, I have a beautiful NEW 12x12 6-page layout kit titled My Sunshine that's filled with pretty flowers, butterflies, bees, birdhouses, rainbows, and more. It's ohhhh so lovely and perfect for photos of spring, summer, and everyday moments.

Also, I've just restocked my Our Wedding Scrapbook Album. This beauty was first introduced in January and sold out super fast but after receiving many requests, I've added it back in the shop!

12x12 My Sunshine Scrapbook Layouts with flowers, butterflies, bees, birdhouses, and rainbows

I designed these pages with the Bella Blvd, Just Because Collection and I absolutely love it. It has pretty colors, fun patterns, and a general theme that allows the layouts to be used for almost anything!

You could add photos of the Easter holiday, Mother's Day, summer, a fun day at the park, your garden, a birthday, a bridal or baby shower, fun with family and friends, your pet, or everyday memories.

The kit includes a full package of ephemera and a 12x12 sticker sheet, so ... you can replicate my designs exactly or use your creative freedom to customize them for your needs. 

There are bicycles, singing birds, musical notes, a flower cart, a hedgehog (with a cute flower crown!!), bunny rabbits, a mailbox, hearts, seed packets, and more!

This "my sunshine" page would be a great spot for photos of someone that lights up your life, like ... your children, grandchildren, best friend, mom, daughter, or your sister.

I spelled out this title using stickers from the 12x12 sticker sheet (included in the kit). You'll get the entire alphabet, so again ... you could change the title to anything if you'd like. Add someone's name, the date, a saying that's meaningful to you, or even a bible verse.

These 6 pages have space for 23 photos and a pocket with journaling cards so you can document details.
