This has been quite the year for the Holmes Crew. From the birth of our first grandson to my daughter's wedding, this year has had quite a few highlights and the year isn't even over yet! I knew the minute I saw the new SN@P! collection that it would be perfect to document all those memories. My binder choice was orange...bright, happy and cheerful...the perfect color to document such an amazing year!
I left the chipboard tab dividers in the album to separate my album into quarters or seasons. I purposefully left these almost "naked" as a place to rest in an otherwise busy album.
I used the Simple Basics 6x8 pages to separate my album into months. Each month is introduced the same way with a different color banner created with the Color Vibe collection. On top of the banner, I have placed the month stickers from the Calendar Cardstock Stickers sheet.
The inside came together super easy with all the amazing product from the Color Vibe, Core Life, and Snap Life Collection kits....
When creating my pages I added photos and elements to the page protectors, placing stickers and journaling strips on top of the page protectors. I love the variety this provides. Each page is unique but still coordinates with the entire book. I would love for you to come on over to my blog and check out the rest of my album!
It’s a Sn@p to Save Money with Extreme Couponing
Have you ever watched the show Extreme Couponing and thought, “There is NO way you can save that much or get things for free…” I’m hoping my post might just change your mind and inspire you to not only save a little money, but to use your Sn@p products in fun and practical ways. That receipt is a legitimate purchase I made with coupons at my local Safeway and if you visit my blog today, I’ll give you some savvy tips for saving.
The Simple Stories 6x8 album is not just for pictures and memorabilia, I have found that it is the perfect size for storing my coupons. The clear 4x6 and 3x4 pockets keep me organized and make it so easy to see my coupons. And, the size of the album easily fits in my purse, so I don’t have to worry about the bulk of a big binder – plus it is so lightweight.
These little binders make it so easy to stay organized. I’ve actually gotten comments at the grocery story about how nice my system is for holding my coupons, not to mention the custom design with the Sn@p collection.
I recommend using some packing tape or contact paper to seal the design of the cover so that the paper and embellishments stay in their pristine condition with all of the use your album will get. I had a great time combining the Sn@p alphabets with this 3 x 4 Sn@p card to make my sassy title.
