Sn@p has taken the scrapbooking world by storm! Our super bright and happy collection is the the answer for capturing your colorful memories and everyday life in a Sn@p! Join us all week long for some happy Sn@ppy! inspiration!
This summer, we went on our very first family vacation. We spent several nights around the Twin Cities in Minnesota and had such a fun time. Sn@p made it so easy to create a mini album of our vacation together and it was fun to pull in other travel products I have been wanting to use.
For the cover, I pulled out many products with "hello" on them and then added "Vacation" using the alphabet stickers and labels. I also wanted a calendar to share the date when we went on vacation so I cut that out from one of the Simple Basics patterned papers. I also tied a little wood veneer car to the cover with twine.
I used one of the chipboard inserts as a cover sheet. I had a map stamp from Cocoa Daisy that I heat embossed and then highlighted where we went with a heart sticker and "love this" sentiment. And it was fun to add the "who, what, when, where" details with the tabs that I cut out from Snappy Thoughts 4 x 6 cards.
For the inside cover, I used another Snappy Thoughts 4 x 6 card to share a few more details about our vacation. And for page one, I started using the divided page protectors.
Here are the next two pages...I'm keeping everything super simple! Some pockets, I just slide in a card or photo with minimal embellishments. I'm really loving the options for journaling!
And a couple more pages...again, mostly the photos, a little patterned paper and a few stickers here and there..
I have a couple more pages of the album on my blog. My album is still a work in progress so I hope to share more with you soon.
As someone who attempted Project Life last year and failed after about two months, I really wanted to make this an album that I felt I could actually keep up with. It is a sort of spin off of PL…a favorite photos album. Each month I plan on printing a few of my favorite family photos and filling up those little pockets with pictures that make me smile. (However, for now those pockets are filled up with adorable Simple Stories cards since this album will start with January 2013). Once I know exactly which photos are going to go into each pocket I plan on embellishing all of the pockets accordingly with all of the Sn@p! goodness!!!!
After Aiden was born on May 1st I wanted to make sure to capture as much as possible, the big and the little things. Since babies grow so fast I knew I needed an easy way to document it all. I searched for the right suplies....till I got to see the Sn@p sneaks!! This was it, I just knew it...So I have been waiting for it to get here :) The colors are just perfect to use for a baby album!
I started my album with the story about giving labor to Aidan....it was quit the story lol.
In the pocket you see here I have put some pictures that are not for everyone to see but are very special. Aiden only seconds after being born.
So after the first four weeks here you see his second month
Let's take a jump to his sixth month! Thats were we are now. (The 3 months in between I still have to do but you need to know I did all this in about 6 hours!! So it won't be to much of a problem catching up on those.)
Here I printed the story about this month on one of the pages.
Working with sn@p! is so much fun!! In May 2013 I will
have finished this album which than make a great resume of his first year and I
am sure in between I will find a good excuse to start on a second album, just
for the fun of it!!
