Hello there! Allie here today sharing two layouts using the fun, NEW Sunshine & Happiness collection! I love all the bright cheerful colors that have me in the mood for summer!


For the first layout, was instantly inspired by the High Five patterned paper. I cut it up and repieced it back together to create a dimensional background! I added sewing around the triangles to really make them pop. Once I had my photo down, I used the Bits & Pieces included in the SN@P! pack to create my title. I added pop dots to the bottom of "HAPPY" for extra dimension!

I added a few more embellishments to complete the layout--the Bradz are my favorite!

For my next layout, I used the Happy Day paper and some watercolors to create a fun effect.
I loved the flowers in the corner of the Total Crush paper, so I cut the corner from the page and used it as a base to my layout. I layered with fussy cut flowers from the Happy Day paper, and added Bradz and enamel dots on the centers.
I also used chipboard and some of the Bits & Pieces for variety. Once I had everything down, I used watercolors and a waterbrush around the edges of my layers. I alternated between pink, orange, and yellow watercolors.
Using a waterbrush allowed me to have more control over the look. I cut out the quote from the 4"x6" Horizontal Elements paper, then placed it beneath my title. I completed the page by using the watercolors to add splatters!
Thanks for joining me today, I hope you feel inspired to use the new Sunshine & Happiness collection! I had a lot of fun creating these layouts and it's made me extra excited for Summer!


Hello dear friends! Alexandra here to document weeks 17&18, I have used only two pocket pages and used the Sunshine & Happiness collection.

I love to use the 3x4 cards that are part of the SN@P! Pack.

The title for both pages were made using the 12x12 Expressions stickers.

As always, I love to use the Photo-Flips

I really like using yellow and orange side by side, especially against such blue skies.

Behind the flip is another card with the journaling.

I used the 4x12" piece from the 2x12/4x12/6x12 Element paper for the top of the page.

Stickers for the title.

The Photo Flip allowed me to add two extra pictures while keeping the page rather "uncluttered".

Below is what the pages look like in the 12x12 SN@P! Faux-Leather Album (I added the program for Lily's dance recital between the two pages)

Since I also document my weeks using an 8 inch format, I thought I would share what WEEK 18 looked like. Thank You!
