Vicki Boutin + Hawaii = amazing Doodlebug mini album!

Vicki Boutin + Hawaii = amazing Doodlebug mini album!

Hi friends!

Vicki here with a colourful and fun 8×8 album I created using Doodlebug Design’s amazing Fun in the Sun line!  The family and I were lucky enough to visit Maui in August and I knew right away that I wanted to use this collection with the yummy diecuts and tropical colours to create a mini book to house all of our memories from our trip.

Take a look…


I love the bright yellow of the Doodlebug Storybook album!


I added lots of pocket flips and interactive bits.





These are two side flips to increase the real-estate on my page.


When they open up I can add extra photos.  Fun!


Here is a pocket and a front flap.


Another interesting way to add even more to a mini.  I can add ephemera collected from our trip in the pocket.


This is a big spread with a little surprise…


The page on the left opens up!


It’s fun to switch up the scale of the pages and add a smaller page.

Now all I have to do is edited the 100’s of photos I took and add them to this little beauty! Thanks for letting me share a little Doodlebug sunshine today!! 

Happy Crafting!!!

    How cute is this album! I have to go book a trip so I too can make an album with Doodlebugs Fun in the Sun papers. My favorite is the flamingos

    Your album is gorgeous! You have given me so many ideas for a cruise we are taking in November. I can hardly wait for both the cruise and starting on the album.
