Simple Stories SNAP!!!!


This month I was asked to design with Simple Stories SNAP!! for my Design Team samples for The Scrapbooking Studio in Bloomington, IL. I absolutely LOVE this line!!! It is so very fun and the primary colors with brown are very ME. (My living room is green, blue, and red) I only had one problem with this line, and it was making a decision. I love every little piece. Each time I did something I found myself distracted looking at all the pretties again. I literally had to tell myself to FOCUS!! And, stop over thinking it!!

Not a bad problem to have to love what you are doing!!

My design team products for this month included the Collection Kit. But, I have to admit, I actually bought most of the rest of the line myself too. Good thing, because when my 16 yr old daughter came home, she began drooling. I think she likes the line as much as me. I may have to hide my scraps from her or she will confiscate them. Oh SNAP!!

This month I designed two cards, two one page layouts, and a mini album with a whopping 12 pages (including 2 insert pages) to showcase pictures and journaling.

Here are the two all occasion cards I made. Great cards to send to a far away friend that you have not seen in a while:

I also designed two layout pages. One is a "Life is Good" page for some favorite pictures. The other is a calendar page for August of 2012. The pages can be used together for a two page layout or separately.

The last thing I designed was a Mini Album. This turned out AMAZING!!! I was originally going to use one of the cute albums that go with the Snap! line.  After looking through everything I was given as a design team member and everything I bought, I changed my mind. I decided to make one with two of the large pockets as a front and back cover and just punch my own holes. This way I can give my album to my niece as a Christmas present. Woohoo!!!! Good thing she is too young to read blogs. She will be so excited!! She will be having a very snappy Christmas!! Woohoo!!

Here are a few shots of the cover and each of the pages in the book. The mini album contains 12 pages (including 2 insert pages). Plenty of place for you to tuck tons of pictures and to journal your story.
