At the Zoo with Doodlebug

Hi, I just finished this adorable "Life's a Zoo" 6.5 by 8.5 interactive chipboard album.  This is the Kathy Orta  (paper phenomenon)  - Mr. Bejamin method of construction.  Instead of making 6 signatures I only made two signatures which still leaves you with tons of real estate for photos.  I had to tone down my signatures because I add alot of 3D embellishments.  If you want to make Kathy's Mr. Benjamin with the six signatures then you won't have room for 3D embellishments and I love my embellies.

I used the brand new Doodlebug "At The Zoo" for this album.  It is the cutest paper ever!  My title "Life's a Zoo" was great for this mini album because it doesn't necessarily have to be about your day trip to the zoo, but rather your daily lives with your child.

I added a couple of "instagram diecut photo frames" with space to add a small photo and a 4x6.

Here is a small "instagram die frame" behind the cute giraffe

This page with the palm tree and giraffe design is a vertical slide in pocket to add extra photos and/or journaling tags

Here is another pocket page above to add extra tags and photos.  Great spot for journaling

Isn't the baby rhino the cutest?  On this page I added a 4x6 journaling card from the "At The Zoo" Doodlebug collection

This Mr. Bejamin construction by Kathy Orta with its flip pages really gives you so much room for photos.  Even though I only put in two signatures rather than six.  I still have real estate for 33 photos!

The binding is 3 inches wide and I chose the cutest paper from the Doodlebug collection to cover the spine.

I still have some Doodlebug "At The Zoo" paper collection left so I plan on making another Mr. Benjamin and list it on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps.  Please check in for that upcoming album.

This particular album has already been sold, I didn't even get the chance to list it LOL.  I can understand, it is the cutest album and I fell in love with this Doodlebug collection.

Thank you for stopping by, please check my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps as I am always adding listings.

Happy scrapping!

MORE! Sesame Street Pages - Kermit The Frog

Hi Everyone:

Been recreating this Kermit The Frog layout and just need to take pictures, sometimes I get lazy  with all other facets of having an Etsy shop other than the actual making layouts and/or albums.

Anywho, got around to taking photos and now I posted this page on my Etsy Shop Kitsnbitscraps to add to my Sesame Street collection.  I still have one more layout to work on, then I'm done with Sesame Street and moving on.

So stay tuned for Miss Piggy next!

Thank you for stopping by, check out this two page layout and my other sesame street muppet characters:  Chef Bork, Count Dracula, Fozzie Bear, Big Bird on the Premade Scrapbook Pages Section of my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy Store.

Happy Scrapping

Sesame Street Pages Just Posted


Just posted four new layouts for my Kitsnbitscraps Etsy store.  I have made these before and got some requests to recreate them.  I might recreate / or similar Grouch and Kermit page but then that's it.

If you are interested in adding to your child's album or want to start one, these pages would be perfect for birthday, playtime, learning to count, first meal - pretty much any childhood event.

I listed the following double 12x12 hand drawn, cut and pieced pages of the muppets.

Please go to the Kitsnbitscraps store under Scrapbooking Premade Pages Section and you will see all four listed there.  They are all 28.99 each.  12x12 two page layouts.  I took care to draw these characters, use layers and different textures to make the cuteness stand out.  Great pages to give as gifts for starter albums for baby showers or birthdays.

Thank you for stopping by, enjoy.

NEW Black and White Wedding Album

Hello, seems I am on a roll.  I tend to do that, its like I get my mojo and don't want to stop.  Plus I really like this construction.  This album is a mini but it really holds lots of photos.  This album would make a great bridal shower or wedding gift.

Ok, I am not much for writing and as they say ... a picture speaks a thousand words

This last waterfall insert fits eleven 4x4 photos.  The mats are double sided.

 The wedding album has magnetic closure and also has pretty black polka dotted ribbon to tie.   This album is on sale on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps for $34.99.  Go check it out :)  

I used a combination of product on this album.  I like to mix and match but keep a consistency of color and theme.

Thank you for stopping by, hope you enjoyed my album ... happy scrapping

New Folio Wedding Album

Hi, I love these folio albums!  They measure 5x8.5 and hold LOTS of photos.  The waterfall photos mats alone in this album holds 11 4x4.  There is also a pocket with a file folder for more photos or journaling.

My girlfriend who is always on you tube showed me the construction.  I changed it a tad for my purposes.  She couldn't remember where she first saw it (she watches tons of videos) so I'm sorry I cant give you the you tube channel.

Since this album folds together in a gate fold fashion I couldn't add my usual thick embellishments.  So I compromised by die cutting lots of handmade embellies and stamping / embossing some quotes.

I love the color combination for this wedding album, and I was able to mix in some elements that I had pieces of.  Yeah I love it when I can use my stash.  Of course I had to die cut some butterflies.

I hope you enjoyed this preview of my album.  Also this album would make a great personal shower gift for any bride.  If you would like to purchase it please go to my Etsy store @ Kitsnbitscraps.

Thank you for stopping by, happy scrapping

New Little Man Baby Boy Album

Hi, it's been awhile since I last posted.  I've been busy with remodeling my home and also went on a fabulous trip to Ireland with my daughter.

I missed being in my studio so have been busy creating albums since my return.  Today I am sharing a baby boy mini I did with a folio style construction.

This is a great mini album, it holds lots of photos, even has a waterfall page that holds 10 (4x4) photos and measures 5 x 8.5.

This mini has lots of pages that flip and are double sided.  There are four half pages included.

This is an awesome way to get more photos into your mini, using this waterfall construction.

I am finished with this mini and starting on a wedding album next.  Here is a sneak peek of the wedding album.

Loving these beautiful lavendars, greys and soft blues.  This wedding album will be posted on my Etsy store Kitsnbitscraps soon.

Thank you for stopping by, happy scrapping
