Love For Layout Blog Train a Mini Scrapbook Extravaganza and a Free Junk Journal Tags Printable

Welcome blog hoppers!

The Cherry On Top has been doing this hop for several years now and I've kept the links live for the past few years.  So scroll back or use the search and find more hops for more free templates.  This blog is full, full, full of fabulous free digital designs and printables.  Peruse the AD FREE, POPUP FREE blog (Shoo!  How refreshing!) and grab the goodies while you can.  We're reaching nearly a decade of good old fashioned blogging.  I don't make a darn penny doing it!  I just want to share with you, my digital designs and craft savvy to inspire and hopefully, get you doing what you love to do or what you'd like to start doing.

Free Template

Join our template group and share your pages, here. You'll also find all of the stops there.

Kim's Creative World was the stop before mine and I'm the last stop.

So, there's our free template.  If you follow our every move, then this template may look vaguely familiar.  I swiped my preview idea for our Country Collection's mini keychain album and turned it into a template.  I also designed some FREE Junk Journal tags so you can print them out, with your favorite photos on the back and craft your very own vintage, mini tag album.  Keep scrolling through the blog to find it.  You'll love all of the mini albums along the way.

templates for scrapbooking

I'm still designing digital scrapbooking templates.  I design or revamp at least 3-5 templates a week and get them in Plus.  Here are two previews of my latest sets.  Above are recycled templates.  If you've been following us from the beginning, you may already have them, though I do often make improvements to old templates.  Below, are totally new templates.  Year In Review templates are always popular in Plus.

As promised, I'm featuring a whole bunch of mini albums that I recently designed.  I just love mini albums and short and easy scrapbook projects.  That's mostly what I've been designing for Design Bundles.  So, if you're short on time and or scrapbook savvy, you're going to love what I've been adding to the shop.

I thought I'd leave you with this preview for all kinds of tips on how you can use this mini printable album.  The image is linked up to the product in Plus where you'll find more images.

flip flop mini album

I've been wanting to make this mini album for years and I finally got down to it.  It was so darn easy and I just love the way it turned out.  Again, you can bind and print this out in so many different ways.  Our Summer Collection in Plus is colossal.  If you're on the market for a huge summer scrapbooking collection, look no further.

Our exploding box card minis are all the rage!  It is no wonder.  They are an absolute blast to give as a gift and ya won't believe how simple they are to print and put together.  You can just make a card out of the project or you can add photos.  You can make more inserts, too.  Just shrink up the template for each new layer.  Put an actually small gift or gift card or money in the box if you like.

Father's Day

Again, I've recycled and improved a very old project right from this blog.  Our apron template has been revamped with a manly touch.  This would be great for Father's Day or Dad's birthday.  It's really simple to print and put together.  You can turn it into a card or reprint the pages with photos and make it a mini album.  See how we did it on this blog and this one

This one was a favorite of mine.  An oldie, but a goodie!


OK, back to the present.  Here's some very simple to scrap and assemble mini albums for your pets.

Here's your next nifty gifty I have for you.  Some junk journal tags that you can use as is or you can scrap photos on the back side and make your own key chain mini album.  Using laminate will make your mini more rigid.  I also find that the colors come out bolder and better, too.
