Hello again, Simple Stories fans! Teri here today, and I'm here with another Life Documented project. I'm excited to share with you a couple more pages made with the Good Day Sunshine collection.
I just love the bright, happy colors of this collection. I think it just screams Summer so I thought it would be perfect to use to document a late-Summer trip to the fair. I had signed up to take part in a 5K race at the fair and then got enjoy the fair's sights and sounds afterwards. It was such a fun day and totally worth remembering!
One of my favorite elements of these pages are the pockets along the top of this page. I took some of the SN@P! Cuts and then added layers of twine and paper to them. One of the things I really love about Simple Stories' products is you can use them as they come or you customize them by adding embellishments, paper and stickers to them and really make them your own. That's so cool!
If you look really close here, you'll see one of the Good Day Sunshine SN@P! pockets. I typed some thoughts about the day on a journaling card and just slid them into the pocket. To make the pocket a little more customized, I added a die-cut and a little twine to it.
I sure had a fun time putting together the second page of my spread. Believe it or not, I made my own decorative tape with some Good Day Sunshine patterned paper!
It was so easy! I cut strips of patterned paper and then applied two-way tape to it. When it came time to use it, I just tore off a little bit of paper... just like real tape.
One other fun thing about the right page is that top right pocket. I had a bunch of different die-cuts, stickers and brads from Good Day Sunshine collection that were left-over from other projects I worked on and I thought, "What if I mix them up?" Sure enough. That's what I did. I went to town, mixing them randomly together to make the card for the pocket. I think it turned out pretty cool!
I also used one of Simple Stories' Photo Flips on my page so I that I could add another picture to the mix.
By the way, are you guys familiar with the Photo Flips? http://simplestories.com/products/photo-flips They are amazing! Here's why: They are like little pockets. You fill them up with photos, SN@P! Cards or anything your heart desires. Then you adhere the Photo Flips (which have adhesive on them) to your page.
And one more thing I should mention. After I completed my pages, I still had my race bib to scrap. So what did I do? Easy! I grabbed a 6x8 Pocket Page and slapped it in it and added it right to the spread. If you run or know someone who runs and want to scrapbook those bibs, I've found those pocket pages fit many of the race bibs out there.
So before I go, let's talk about albums. I'm using a 12x12 SN@P! faux leather album in red to document all of my 2014 adventures in. I often scrapbook out of order so it's really nice that the album's ring binding allows me to do that. I used the SN@P! Pocket Pages Design 3 for these pages. I also used one of the 6x8 Pocket Pages. It's cool that Simple Stories offers so many different styles of pages. I dig being able to mix them together. I think it helps keeps my pages interesting!
See you again,
