Hi! Odessa here with some more SN@P! layouts! Lately I’ve been using them to document our summer adventures and I am just loving these 6x8 binders for telling my favourite stories.
Dream Big is such a me collection. I’m pretty girly. I like glitter and unicorns and everything cute. I also have 2 boys and the majority of my scrapbooking involves them. But I don’t let that stop me! While Dream Big might not go with some of our bigger adventures, it’s perfect for a nature hike and a day at the beach with a giant inflatable unicorn. I made a cute title page for this story with a 3x4 journal card (with an added cat unicorn embellishment because why not?!?) and a 3x4 cut from one of the gorgeous papers from the collection. I used some of the Basics alpha stickers to make a fun title. I added in a picture of all my fav guys and some more embellishments from the collection and my title page is done.
For this spread I used a bunch of the journal elements I loved from the cut apart sheets with some of my fav photos from our walk. It was a pretty magical place so this kit works well. And those new puffy stickers give me major heart eyes! They are great for adding a bit of dimension.
Sometimes a plain journal card is just to plain to me and I have to jazz it up. Here I added this adorable banner chipboard and a phrase sticker to personalize it.
Next up was the part of this story that really went with the collection. Blue skies, floating away on a unicorn and white sand. I went for a brighter look with this page, all of the cut apart journal cards are really bright since my photos are pretty cohesive colour and composition-wise. I added in a card with a spot to write so I could get some words in and added a few stickers here and there to the other cards. I accented my photos with some puffy stickers, words and phrases.
I was really excited to have a legitimate reason to use a sticker that says “ride a unicorn.” One of my favourite things to add to a photograph is a few loosely related phrase stickers to create a little story on the photo.
Ok, so maybe every single beach trip I document says “Beach Please” on it, but I don’t know if any of them look as good as this one. Those alphabet stickers are perfect!
I finished off bold with lots of rich colour. I love the pinks and oranges in Dream Big so I let them shine here. On the left are a few pics from our drive home embellished with various stickers. On the right I used a page full of 2x2 squares. The Dream Big collection includes a paper full of 2x2 elements perfect for sliding into these proctectors. I cut down a 4x6 photo to fit in the middle and worked my favourite 2x2 squares from the paper around it. Then I added a mermaid cat sticker because it seemed like a good place to use it.
I hope you enjoyed this look inside my album and how I used Dream Big! It’s a great collection to embrace colour and all things cute!
