Hi Everyone! Donna here, your host for the blog today. I think you might have surmised by now that the entire design team is in love with Sn@p! Aren't you? I mean, it is so amazingly fun and vibrant and happy! I hope you will forgive me for sounding like a broken record, but once again I find that Simple Stories has the most inspiring designs. I'd like to show you today how I took inspiration from the Sn@p! Icon Stickers:
to create a layout and two cards. I was first drawn to the circle stickers with their graphic design and bold colors. I loved the shapes within a circle and made this card to start.
After having made this card with its simple grid, I couldn't get grids out of my head. I decided to build on that idea and created a grid-style layout with lots of simple layers.
I cut the numbers and icons using my Silhouette Cameo. The icons are adhered using foam adhesive to add dimension to an otherwise flat page.
And for the numbers, I decided to use the negative image of the number and then back that image with papers from the Sn@p! Life Basics 6x6 paper pad.
And my goodness, can I tell you how much I love the Simple Basics that coordinate with Sn@p! Life?
I used the 6x6 paper pad here, but I love the 12x12 papers equally well, and I am certain I will need many sheets of all of the patterns.
Finally, since I was just having so much fun, and because I happen to love the yellow polka dot that is a part of Sn@p! Color Vibe, I made this card.
The sentiment on the card above was stamped onto one of the label stickers:
I probably don't have to say this, but I love these too! I wanted to mention something about the stickers before I go, and that is, they are a matte finish and are perfect for stamping! It also makes them perfect for Project Life or for layouts since you can easily add some journaling, a short note, or date without worrying about it smudging.
I've mentioned a few of my favorite products throughout this post. Now that you've had a chance to see the design team use the many bits and pieces of the new Sn@p! collections, what you are your favorite products? Is there something you just can't wait to get your creative hands on?
Thanks for stopping by; have a fabulous weekend!!
