Well hello there! It's my turn to share my take on how I used the amazing new Home Sweet Home Chipboard mini album and I am super excited to share it with you today! Since I am a recent addition to the team, I didn't get the chance to use the adorable "Pretty Kitty "collection. So, I thought I would create this fun little mini album with a kitty theme and I really love how this one turned out!

I really thought the phrase on the top banner strip pretty much summed up the whole theme of my album. We have the sweetest kitty named Winifred and she absolutely makes our home so much better! She is an absolutely spoiled little kitty and I plan to fill up this album with some of my favorite photos of her! On my cover, I used some papers from the 6x6 paper pad and some yellow cardstock. Various stickers from the Icon Sticker sheet were used as well as the adorable "Hello Friend" Doodle Pop in the center. I also fancied up the cover with this cute cluster of ribbons, twine, a button, and this cute paw print die cut from the Bits and Pieces.

My album has 8 pages that are all decorated. Several of the pages have some fun pockets, pull-outs, and flip-out sections! Let me show you each of the pages:

My first page has a side flap with a pocket I made from one of the 3x4 cards on the "Cat Nap" paper. I tucked a tag and a photo spot with a tabbed label on it.

Here is the page with the flap opened. I decorated this portion with some spots for photos and some embellishments from the collection.

On this page, I utilized the fun "Picture Purrrfect" title piece from the Chit Chat die cuts on top of a large photo spot. The cute floral banner is also from the Chit Chat.

This is a fun side pocket page that I decorated up with one of the fun squares from the "Feline Good" layered on top of a tag. Inside the pocket are a few of the journaling spots on the "Having a Ball" paper. The addition of some twine and ribbon makes this page extra fun!

Another page, another space for a large photo of your feline friend! This page has a few stickers from the Icon Sticker sheet and the heart label from the Bits and Pieces are layered up with some enamel dots. A small sticker, that says "love this" is from the This and That sticker sheet. The cute title piece is from the Chit Chat.

This next page is a fun, interactive one! I cut 4 squares from the "Feline Good" papers and mounted them on some pieces of white cardstock that were scored in half. I laid these out in two rows and then added some sticker strips on the inside of the flaps and decorated the tops of the cards with a few stickers from the Puffy Sticker sheet. This page is finished off with a fun heart banner strip on the top of the page from the Chit Chat.

This page below includes spots for 2 photos and is decorated with cute stickers, tags, and twine. The 'Fur Baby" words are from the Chit Chat. It was fun to add one word on each of the two different photo spots.

This fun page is also interactive! I cut 2 pieces of the Backyard Bunch paper. I scored each of these papers 1/2 in from the edges to make a flap and then decorated the top section up with the sweet "Pretty Kitty " round label from the Chit Chat added on top of a die-cut scallop circle. I added adhesive to the top part of this section, leaving the bottom edge unglued so you can lift the flap up. On the inside of the page, I added a large circle photo spot and decorated the page up with some stickers and a quote die cut.

The final page is a pocket page that is stuffed with some papers from the collection fancied up with some twine, ribbon, die cuts, and stickers. The front portion of the pocket is made by layering up a sticker label from the "This and That" sticker sheet and a 3x4 card from the "Cat Nap" paper.

I truly had the most fun designing this album! The chipboard they are made with is just the right thickness to make it easy to layer and add lots of different types of embellishments. I love that these little cuties are so versatile and can be used with any of the many fantastic Doodlebug collections! So if you have a million pictures of your own fluffy fur baby like I do - do yourself a favor and pick up one of the "Home Sweet Home" albums and fill it up with all of those precious memories! Thank you so much for stopping by today! Have a great week!
