Hi there! Layle here with you today :)
Today I'm back with another Fan Focus Friday!
We have so many great Simple Stories fans out there that we thought it would be fun to showcase some of the work shared with us.
So, here goes! Kayla MacAulay
This month, let me introduce you to Kayla MacAulay -
I am a twenty three year old new Mum from Tasmania, Australia. I began scrapbooking back in 2004 when I was just a teenager. I was never really a crafty person up until then but found love in the fact that I could tell a story through this craft. I dabbled in many mediums of scrapbooking over the years and was lucky enough to work on several design teams and up until most recently owned my own online scrapbooking kit club which I have since changed hands to focus on my new little family with the addition of our first child Elijah Mason who is just 2 weeks old. I love finding new products, techniques and ideas to focus on and this year I am excited to be combining my usual 12x12 style with some Pocket Page themed pages.
Kayla created this wonderful 6x8 Teal SN@P! Binder album in the early stages of her pregnancy with her first child -
According to Kayla -
I was so excited and nervous about being a new Mum and the scrapbooker in me just knew that I had to document it. I loved that with the SN@P! Binders you can set it up and work on little bits here and there. Throughout the pregnancy I just completed cards as I thought of them and slipped them in the pockets.
I used the chipboard dividers that came with the album to section off the binder into three parts, one for each of the trimesters of pregnancy.
I used some of the 6x8 inserts to document some of the bigger things and placed some of the ultrasound photos on these.
I loved that Simple Stories SN@P! Binders have such a large variety of different sized inserts to accommodate different sizes.
I used a mixture of 3x4, 4x6 and 4x4 sized pockets. It’s great for keeping things interesting throughout the album as not every layout is the same!
I have shared pictures here of the first two sections of my album as the third section I was waiting on baby photos from the much awaited arrival of our son who is just two weeks old now. I can’t wait to share the completed album on my blog very soon!
Isn't that an amazing keepsake Kayla created documenting her pregnancy?! I'm sure her son Elijah will treasure this album in the years to come.
Congratulations Kayla on the birth of your son and thank you so much for sharing your amazing project with us this month!
