DIY | Custom Scrapbook Album

Hi guys! Today I'm sharing a fun and quick DIY teaching you how to customize your leather scrapbook album. I mentioned I was going to do this here in my post about planning for this year's Project Life. I decided to customize my 6x12" album this year because they discontinued the gold album that I had loved dearly and used for the past few years of Project Life. The only albums available in the 6x12 size that I could find were green and although I like green, I wasn't ready to let go of my metallic albums quite yet! Watch my short video or read the full step by step tutorial below for a how to so you can get fun colored albums as well!

Fast + Fabulous Friday No. 57

Hey guys! This week I'm here with a quick and fun layout that brings back the painting! I started off this layout with an idea - I had recently received a couple color theory acrylic paints and I just knew I wanted to make my own patterned paper with them. I just scattered some brush stroke filled grey circles in a polka dot pattern across my 9X12 paper and then added spontaneous green leaves where I felt compelled. Once I had this lovely paper made, I didn't want to detract too much with crazy embellishments so I chose a simple photo, placed some thickers over it for my title and placed a journaling tag and one number ticket from the current Film Club Kit from Studio Calico.
