Hi, everyone! Teri here today with a Life Documented project! I'm excited to share with you a few pages I recently made with Simple Stories' Sn@p! products: Sn@p! Life; Sn@p! Embellishments; Sn@p! Cards; and Sn@p! Color Vibe.
Before we get started, let me tell you a little bit about my approach to pocket-page style memory keeping. A lot of my crafty friends use Pocket Pages to document every week in their lives. I don't do that.
I'm a bit of a free spirit when it comes to pocket-style pages. I typically make them when the mood hits me. So that means I'll do a page one week about some fun event I took part in and then maybe not create another page until a few weeks down the road. Like many of you, I lead a pretty busy life, and I don't always have a lot of time to sit down and scrapbook. So I really try to limit my pages to events, people and things I really, really, really want to remember.
So that leads me to my first set of pages. They are all about a color run I took recently took part in.
Talk about about a day I don't want to forget. Fr0m the nervous feeling of signing up for a 5K (my first one ever) to literally getting covered with color from head to toe on race day, I wanted to remember everything. The day was just so much fun! And I am pretty sure I smiled the entire time!
The number is my actual race bib. The "rad" word is a tattoo leftover from race day. And the picture with the blue background is of myself and my teammates! We called ourselves "Team Crafty" so I used letter stickers to spell our team name right on top of the picture.
I wanted my pages to have a little personality so I added a few extra touches to them, like punching holes in the blue polka dot card with a hole punch and then adding some circle stickers (and a brad) over some of the blue polka dots.
These pages include a few pictures, a parking pass (complete with the wrong year written on it!) and a lot of journaling!
I completed the majority of journaling on this spread with an old typewriter. And because the spread is so text heavy, I tried to bring in quite a bit of color to it by choosing some Sn@p cards in bright colors rather than just white ones.
I also used embellishments to liven up the spread and try to downplay all that text. Here I made a border with circle stickers and brads.
I'll be using the 12x12 Sn@p! leather album in teal as the year goes on for many of my Life Documented projects! I love the color of the album, and that it has a ring binding system! Since I employ a free spirit philosophy when it comes to these pages, I dig that I can easily work on my pages for it out of order.
I used the Sn@p! 12x12 Pocket Pages Design 5 (4x6/4x3), Design 7 (4x6/ 6x12), Design 8 (6x8/4x6) and Design 10 (3x4/4x4) for my pages today. I love the variety of page styles Simple Stories offers. It's fun having so many options.
