Hello, Simple Stories fans! Melissa here today to share a 6x8 Sn@p album using the I Heart Summer line! The album documents a two week road trip that my husband I took this summer, and I'm so excited to be getting photos of this adventure scrapped!
Before I get started, I have a confession to make- I meant to put this album together on the road, and it never happened. I took it with me and even made a little kit of supplies to work on it while in the car (we drove nearly 4,000 miles total!), but we were already doing so much that a few days in I decided to put it all away and just enjoy the trip. It was a great decision, and now I'm getting to re-live those fun moments again as I scrapbook them.
I'm using a mix of 6x8 divided and full-size Pocket Pages as I assemble the album. The divided pages hold photos and journaling, and I'm using the full 6x8 pages to keep the brochures from each National Park we visited along with documentation from our various camp sites.
As I'm scrapping the album (I'm sharing the first third of it today), I first choose photos and the Pocket Page that best matches them, and then I go back and add journaling cards and writing. Once I've done that for several pages, I then go back with embellishments and add a few touches here and there to finish things off. Simple Stories products make this a very quick process!
I always seem to include tons of photos in my Pocket Page layouts, which doesn't leave a lot of room for embellishment sometimes. In this album, I decided to add some fun little bits in the form of chipboard, stickers, and a title to each of the 6x8 memorabilia Pocket Pages, just for a little more color.
I love how Simple Stories makes a daunting task like documenting a massive vacation easy and fun, and I'm excited to dive in and finish up the rest of this album.
For supplies, I used the I Heart Summer collection along with a 6x8 Sn@p binder in brown and an assortment of 6x8 Pocket Pages (I used at least one of each design in the collection).
