Hey Doodlebug friends! Today, I have a fun accordion style mini album to share with you that I made with the Cute and Crafty Collection, some 4x4 Doodlebug cards and that adorable little shaker pops. I was so excited to finally use this with it's colorful sequins!

I started with some Doodlebug tri-fold cards I found in my stash. They came from various card and envelope packs. Since Doodlebug's color schemes have been the same for 20 years, you can mix and match products from various collections and they will always match beautifully. I 💗 that!

To make this accordion album, I used 4 cards in bubblegum, limeade, swimming pool & cupcake. I adhered panel 3 of the tri-fold card to panel 1 of the card after it, until all 4 cards were connected.
I used a mix of the 12x12 patterned papers, 6x6 paper pad and white cardstock to cover each side of the card, creating a cute page and mat on both the front and back sides. Then I added die cut pieces and sprinkles throughout.
I love the new Bits and Pieces. There are 95 different die cuts in the package and I may have used half of them in this mini, lol! The flowers, leaves, cute tags and different shapes are the perfect accent with the colorful prints.

I used the window on the front of the card to act as a frame for the cute jar die cut and a 3x4 card from the Precious Posies paper to make a fun flip-up.

For these pink pages, I cut 2 die cuts (from the Bits and Pieces) in half for added interest and embellished with some adorable little enamel flower sprinkles. Love!

The Perfectly Plaid paper on the page above is so pretty and on the reverse side, there are 25 squares with adorable images. That's where I got the cute little Polaroid card from. I love adding folding elements to my albums and these are perfect for them.

I hope this mini album and the colorful Cute and Crafty collection inspires you to create a fun mini for your own memories. Happy crafting!
