Today design team member Marie Lottermoser joins us with a sunny, summery SN@P! Binder - 

Hi Everyone!  Marie here today to share the beginning of my summer album. As the weather warms up I can't wait to include all my favorite summer things from popsicles to beach trips in my album.

I started off by using a die cut from the SN@P! Journal Pages to create a divider page to separate out the season and year from the rest of my album.  I punched out a 2" circle of striped paper and layered a flair button right on top.  I love these flair buttons, and am using several of them throughout my pages.

I followed that up with a 2x2 grid page of my favorite summer things. I added in several small chipboard frames which fit perfectly in the pocket pages and make great accents for stickers and another flair badge.

Summer just isn't summer without a trip to the fair.  On this page I layered a transparency (which is included in the Summer Vibes collectionover my photo.  It's a simple way to add a pop of color to a photograph.

Next I used a foldover Journal Page and punched a 2 inch circle on one side.

Now when the Journal Page is folded over, a flair badge peeks through the opening.  One tip, punch out your circle before you glue down your flair badge to make sure you have proper placement.

So that's a look at how my summer album is coming together.  I hope you'll join me this summer in documenting all of your favorite memories!
