Hi there Simple Stories fans, Nancy here with a SN@P! Birthday Set layout and pocket page example. I began with a Page Maps sketch to lay out photos from my niece's birthday celebration. I love the variety of shapes and sizes in this sketch. It was so easy to include all of my favorite photos from this event.
The birthday girl's age was emphasized with a countdown right in the balloon die cuts below. The ruffled tissue paper was repeated just under the card to add some birthday flair to this pocket. A white stitched circle and some stickers dimension to a plain 3x4 card.
A play on words was used to dress up a colorful 3x4 card. I used my niece's initials "YS" and dubbed it the 6.0 version.
While I was able to fit all of my favorite photos in this pocket page, I had a special story that I wanted to highlight. There was a funny moment during her birthday celebration, when the boys (being their usual ornery selves), teased her about being cake poachers and eating her cake. This photo and story perfectly capture the stage they are in right now.
Using the left over supplies from the SN@P! Birthday set I was able to create this clean, linear page.
All of the dimension and pops of color can be found in the title and strips of patterned paper from the Homespun collection. With just a few simple embellishments and a 3x4 card from the Birthday set, I was able to tell one of my favorite stories.
Both the pocket scrapbooking pages and the traditional layout lay side by side in my teal SN@P! leather album. I love how sturdy it is and how many layouts I can fit in it.
