Day In The Sun By Cristina Sales!

Hi beautiful Simple Stories friends, Cristina here with you today to show you a new project I made with the brand new Simple Vintage Coastal collection. When I saw this collection I immediately wanted to use it to make a mini album. A vintage-style summer theme full of marine elements but not the usual ones that are proposed for the summer it would be perfect.

For a long time I wanted to give a gift to a dear friend who travels a lot. She has no way to collect all the photos she takes during her travels so she leaves them on the phone or computer. So I decided that this collection would be perfect for her day in Terracina.

I chose a 5x7” horizontal size so and I made the pages a 4x6” size. I added two 3x4/4x6 Sn@p! pocket pages. I cut one at the middle to have two horizontal pocket pages, one 4x6 and one with two 3x4 size pockets.

Then I cut the inner pages for my mini book choosing those papers with patterns and soft colors in order not to create too many contrasts with the colors of the photos. I wanted to create the contrast on the cover by choosing a wood-effect paper from the Sn@p Wood Basics collection and which was perfect as a combination with the colors of Simple Vintage Coastal collection.

I think the designs in this collection are really beautiful and unusual for a summer collection, I loved them a lot especially for this. Pastel and delicate colors, scenarios that inspire silence and relaxation that made me dream of being under one of those palm trees perhaps abandoned on a rowboat in the middle of the sea.

To create some sentiments I used the beautiful foam alphabets available in all pastel colors suitable to be combined with this collection. They are so so amazing and come in an uppercase font and a very high foam quality. Then I had so much fun adding chipboard, brads, stickers, ephemera, frames, and so on. This collection is really full of everything you can desire to have to decorate your projects.

You don’t need to have anything else because all the embellishments are full of many elements to decorate your pages, mini book or anything else your creativity inspires you to do. So if you didn’t add the Simple Vintage Coastal to your own stash yet, this is the right time
to have it.

I hope you are inspired by my project! Thank you so much for joining me today and see you again in my next post.
