It's time for Halloween, and in honor of the season, I've gotten the first of TWO Halloween album kits up in the shop! This one's for those who don't like their Halloween too spooky. Keep an eye out for my next kit in a few days, which is for those who want their Halloween as spooky as it gets!

I've got a new mini album kit available in the shop today - stop by for a look-see!
It's generic enough for all sorts of themes, and feminine enough to make the perfect Mother's Day gift!
This sweet little album is made with pre-printed file folders and papers by Teresa Collins, and goes together in a matter of minutes! But don't let the size fool you: there's a ton of real estate for photos and journaling. You can fit at least 17 photos in it, because I've included a foldout file folder with pockets as well as waterfall pages with cute page tabs and plenty of flags for fun!
Oh - one more thing: because there are no chipboard pages to cut, the price is quite low compared to my other kits. And you still get a full pack of decorative brads, a 12x12 sheet of stickers, a 12x12 sheet of double-sided die-cut elements, a pack of file folders (like the blue floral one shown above), a pack of matching CUTE photo corners, and 6x6 papers!
Be sure to visit the studio shop to check out the other pages along with the rest of the details, and get yours before they're all gone!
Well, it seems I never posted this month's chipboard mini album kit - what's up with that?! Geez - that's just insane!
So, on that note, I give you this month's mini album kit: Family Traditions.
Notice anything a bit different about this month's album? There are no front or back covers! Every single page is a scrapped page. It's meant to stand on a shelf or table as a display item, and it looks fabulous as such! And the best thing is that this makes it so easy to change the photo that's on display: all you have to do is flip the page over to the other side! How awesome is that?!
And this mini album features a beautiful line of slightly textured papers from Carta Bella called - of all things - Traditions. The patterns are so diverse and all work so well together, and the colors will blend with any color scheme.
Be sure to visit the studio shop for more pics and to purchase your own kit!
Right now a lot of scrappers are making the "Project Life" albums for their 2013 scrapping. But if you'd like to try something different - something simpler and less intense - try our 2013 mini album release. My alternative to Project Life is our 'My Everyday Life 2013' album kit. It's made for scrapping your photos as you take them throughout the year, using the bold, bright, beautiful Seen & Noted line by Pebbles.
You'll have the entire album completed in a few hours, ready to add your photos as you take them. That means you won't need to do any scrapping each month other than adding your photos! There's a section for each month of the year, with matching textured cardstock used for the monthly page dividers. I used acrylic page protectors to really simplify things, as well as a booklet of journaling prompts so that you can just tear out a prompt, record your thoughts, and slip the card into the perfectly sized pockets!
There are 3 chipboard pages in this mini album, 12 cardstock monthly dividers/pages to hold photos and stickers, and 12 page protectors.
This album also has a paper pocket to hold extra photos and "stuff" that might be too large to fit into the page protectors. And with TWO sets of matching stickers and some washi tape stickers, you won't run out of embellishments until the last page! This Pebbles collection has such gorgeous colors: two shades of blues, green, an orangey-red, yellow, and two greys; they'll wow you!
Be sure to stop by the studio shop to check out all the pages of this colorful kit. You just might find this chipboard mini album a great alternative to Project Life!
As you may know if you follow the studio blog, we're fortunate enough to have guest designers creating with our kits each month, putting their individual "stamp" on their creations. Well, this month we're thrilled to have the fabulous Amy Sheffer ofPickled Paper Designs back for a second visit!
As I said in an earlier blog post about her, Amy is a cardmaker extraordinaire, whose work I adore and try my hardest to replicate. I've been popping in on Amy's blog to check out her handiwork for longer than I can remember. I mean, just check out this gorgeous card she made:
*melt!* You can check out this sweet card by clicking here.
Amy's got such a versatile style. Her layouts are always perfectly balanced, meticulously detailed, and use just the right mix of colors. She's just got the perfect eye for things, and a knack for creating mini works of art. You can usually spot the use of a few ornate dies, which she expertly works into the focal point. And she always knows the perfect edge punch, border strip, or piece of trim to use to make her statement. (For instance, don't you think the satin ribbon around the gingerbread man's neck is spot-on perfect?!)
As you can tell, I just can't say enough about Amy's work!! So when Amy volunteered to work some magic with 'The Good Life' kit, you know I was excited! She said that she loves mini albums, and you can tell from the way her album turned out! Here's just a peek at her finished album:
Of course, I can't stop there. How about this cool tri-fold insert she added? Clever and cute!
Amy also split a photo across both halves of the album, which I really like too.
