Sunshine & Blue Skys by Mik Godinho!

It’s Mik with you today and I bring you an inspiration using the beautiful Hip Hop Hooray collection!

Spring is almost over, I know, but for me it is the most beautiful and expected season of the year, so it’s never too late to make a spring album. When I think of spring, I immediately think of outdoor walks and picnics. So, I decided to braid the Hickory / Cream Grid 12”x12” paper, which you can find in the Sn@p! Wood Basics collection. This braid reminds me of a picnic basket, and I thought it would be perfect to make my cover background. I used a spring cut file from Paige Evans and I backed it with blossoms paper. Next I glued it in the center of my page using 3D foam adhesives to add some dimension. With this done I started to embellish my Sn@p! Binder.

Embellishing is always fun. I added flowers from the 6x12 chipboard and some ephemeras. To finish my cover, I used enamel dots on the flowers and butterflies.

For the first page of my album I decided to use the so sweet paper. I cut it at the height of the album and folded the sides so that it was closed like a window. To link one side to the other, I used a card that you can find on 4x4 elements paper. I picked combo sticker stickers to decorate it. When opening, you can place a 4x6 and a 4x3 photo on it.

As you know I like to leave a page with lines to be able to write about my photos. I love to add photo flips, so on the lines’ page I also added a photo flip with a card.

Adding unbound cards is also something I really like. That must be part of my "planner soul". I think that it makes each album more fun and colorful.

Here I used one of the kraft dividers, to make a page where I can place a 5x5 photo.

Except for the binder stripe, all 6x8 Sn@p binders come with 10 pocket pages (4 -6 x8”, 3 -4”x6”, 3 -3”x4”/4”x6 ”), but here I used the 3”x3” pocket page, which enables me to put smaller photos and make it more cute.

Did you know that the sheets that come in the 6”x6” basic pad have their backs ledged, gray or dotted? This makes it much easier when we want to do journaling. I love it!

So, I created a journal card on a 3x4”/4x6” and 6x8” pocket page.

Doesn’t looking at this page remind you of a picnic? If the answer is “yes”, prepare a super picnic and take lots of photos to remember that even if we have to stay at home, we can make a delicious snack and enjoy beautiful family moments.

I hope you’ve got some inspiration from this idea and enjoyed it! If you have any questions, would like to talk some more about Sn@p! come and check out my IG account.
