I Love Sn@p!

Hi Friends!
    Over at the Simple Stories blog this week they are featuring what many of the design team members did with their Sn@p albums.  For my album I decided to do one featuring my son and his elementary school years.  I was surprised how easy it came together, the Sn@p products really make it easy. 

I wanted my cover so I could slide it off in case I changed my mind down the road.  So I took the cardboard sleeve that comes on the album and attached my paper to it, folding it around the edge and attaching it on the other side.

Here is a photo of the cover off the album:

I have so many of the large 8 x 10 school photos, these cut down really nicely to fit into the 6 x 8 Sn@p page protectors.  And the Sn@p label stickers work great added to the large photos, I also used the Sn@p letter stickers too.

I also took a piece of art from each year and cut it down to fit in the 6 x 8 page protectors:
The possibilities with these albums are endless.  I took the 4 x 6 Sn@p cards and made a pocket to hold journal strips:
And another pocket:
One of my favorite pages in the Sn@p collection are the ones that feature the little Polaroids, I love these because my punches are the perfect size to cut the photos to fit in the squares.  The punch I used for this page is a 1 3/4 x 1 3/4.
I hope you enjoyed my album or parts of it anyway... have a wonderful day!  Kellie

Playing with Sn@p

I am having fun today playing with Snap, the new product line from Simple Stories!

Happy Wednesday friends!  Today's project is a Maya Road chipboard tin that I altered into a phone. 

I used Jillibean paper, to cover the phone. 
I took the handle off the top of the Maya road tin and flipped it upside down inside the tin.  This is what holds the little phone book pages.

Have a Great day!  Kellie

Simple Stories goodness!

Hi all,

Check out what I received in the mail Friday...

The new Simple Stories product Snap.  This is a pretty Awesome collection!  I love the bright fun colors and designs.  This is a must to check out at your local scrapbook store, I think they are going to be shipped to stores around October 15.  We will be doing a lot of fun things on the Simple Stories blog over the next couple months with Snap. 

A lot of people have been doing project life. Were you basically record daily life and scrapbook it, I have never been inspired enough by a product to want to attempt this.  Well after seeing Snap, I am thinking this is something I would like to try.  But I am going to do mine monthly, I think this would be easier for me to manage.  So keep a look out for this new project to begin!  Have a great Monday!
