Hi! Odessa back with some more SN@P! pages. This time I’m using the fun and a little snarky Bro and Co collection. With two tween boys at home, this was just what I needed for all their non-adventures hiding out with video games and generally being cool guys.

I kept it simple with a SN@P! Binder with a black spine which goes well with the darker tones in the kit. I had some trouble deciding which cardstock to use on the cover because there were a few I really liked, but the bold directional print of So Rad! won out because I knew it would have big impact.

Then I started embellishing the cover of the SN@P! Binder. Instead of a bold title, I decided to go one of my favourite routes, matching the colours of the wide stripes on the cardstock with all kinds of embellishments. Chipboard stickers, Combo stickers, Bits and Pieces and Enamel Dots all from Bro and Co. It was also a fun way to use a few things I liked that didn’t make it into my pockets like the funny yellow shirt.

Bold colour, so much snark and nerdy vibes is my life with 2 boys and Bro and Co really worked well with the photos I was documenting. On this spread I’ve got a fun brother photo next to my older son’s final school assignment, a quarantine time capsule. I used lots of the 3x4 journal cards from the 3x4 Elements Cardstock on this page and So Rad! under the Epic title Bits and Pieces. I also used a handful of the 2x2 Elements with Bro in the centre to make a tiled 3x4 journal card. The Colour Vibe Bolds Alpha Sticker Book was full of just the right coloured alpha stickers to add to my titles and add numbers to the list card.

I love a good embellishment cluster so I used this adorable cold drink Chipboard Sticker with some brads, enamel dots and stars. That checker print is on point!

This layout has some more general life stuff like listing what the boys have been up to along with some photos. I used the fun mixtape from the Bro and Co 4x6 Elements with a phrase from the Foam Stickers over the label which was an easy and impactful way to fill up that 4x6 pocket.

The 3x4 Elements from Bro and Co are just so funny, I liked this one next to a pic of some shopping requests the kids made.

I used the Bro and Co Stamp set here to stamp on a mix tape to make the boys’ current “playlist” along with more of the Colour Vibe Bold Alpha Stickers. I also loved that little bear and stuck him on the cool checkerboard Killin’ It Cardstock with a speech bubble. Adorable and cool! It’s nice to have such a vibrant collection to go with photos of my guys. If you’ve got hours of at-home video games to document I highly recommend Bro and Co!
