As summer starts to come to a close, I find myself looking through vacation photos and feeling nostalgic. Last year our entire family got together and rented a beach house on the Eastern seaboard. It was equal parts crazy and fun. I created this mini album so that I wouldn't forget the details and to see the entire trip in one small capsule. The Summer Vibes collection was perfect for documenting my memories!
Take a look at the video to see how it all came together:
I used the 4x6 SN@P! binder album in a bright, sunny yellow. It's filled with page protectors in a variety of sizes, ledger pages and pretty yellow dividers.
Transparencies from the Summer Vibes Collection Pack make perfect dividers for your mini.
These pages came together quickly with die cuts, frames and stickers from Summer Vibes.
And now a peek at my planner set up for September. I went for a softer look with the Happy SN@P Pack. This is me not accepting that fall is coming! I'll stick with a tropical palette any time.
Planning out my video schedule with the daily pages, alpha stickers and more bits and pieces from the Happy SN@P Pack.
One of my favorite places to make lists are on the monthly divider pages. These let me focus on what's important for the coming month.
This is one of the busiest months of the year for me. I'm looking forward to having one place to keep it all!
Hi! It's Chantalle again :) My final page is also about skateboarding, but this time my little girl’s version - which involves flying down our steep driveway, while seated! I took a series of burst shots as she was doing it and they help tell the story across the centre of my page.
Mimicking the triangle print, the base layer of this layout comprises of a number of triangles which I cut from various sheets from the So Fancy 6x6 pad, using my Silhouette Cameo.
I grouped them so I could place two 6x6 sheets next to each other which can save time.
I just love the gold foil accents in this collection and the chipboard frames are perfect for highlighting areas in a photo. Her face says it all - pure joy!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! If you would like to see more of what I get up to, feel free to pop in to my blog (copasetique.blogspot.com) or you can find me on FB and Instagram @chantallemcdaniel.
Hi! It's Chantalle back again with the 2nd of 3 layouts!
I’m sure I am not alone when I say that it feels as if So Rad has been designed just for me. With a nine year old Son, I find myself laughing out loud at the sentiments and images. Video games… skating… duuuuuude. Sweet ;)
I’ve made a feature of my photo by using a number of the smaller size So Rad chipboard frames. Almost like photo corners. I really like the angle they create in opposition to the straight title.
To create my layered SK8R title:
Summer vacation is already halfway over, and we have been busy! I have been trying my best to keep up with my album while still enjoying the sunny days while we still have them. On these pages I decided to simplify things by adding stickers directly on to my photos to add in some color and fun.
Nothing could be easier than adding a few words or phrases from a sticker sheet to add interest to a big photo. With stickers you don't need staples, tape or glue...it's just peel and stick. This page was finished in under a minute.
Here on the top photo I used different colored letter stickers to spell out a phrase in the empty space, and on the bottom photo I added some enamel dots to a 4x6 card. I really love the ease of this.
I am also a big fan of the clear stickers Simple Stories makes. This pack came with white, black and colored stickers so you can decide which shows up the best on your photos. For instance, a white sticker will really pop against a darker background.
Since the sticker sheets are clear, you can hold them above your photo to decide on their placement before you permanently add them.
On this page I used the clear stickers in two ways. First I added one directly on to a photo of my niece, and on the bottom photo I added a clear sticker over a piece of washi tape.
I hope this gives you some ideas on how you can use stickers directly on top of your photos. I think you will love how much interest they can add to your pictures. Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great summer.
