Hi Simple Stories fans, Wendy here today. I am so excited to share some of what I have created using the newest collections from Simple Stories. In addition to some great new collections I always stumbled upon a great new discovery (for me). Besides using the SN@P! Journal Pages in the 6x8 SN@P! Binders and Albums, did you know that you can also use the SN@P! Journal Pages on your scrapbook layouts?
Every Summer has a Story
I never thought about using the SN@P! Journal Pages on my layouts until I was looking through my goodies from the Good Day Sunshine collection and the wood grain and saying on this page totally jumped out at me.
I paired a SN@P! Journal Page with the amazing blue ombre paper (my favorite) which made my sentiment pop.
I finished this rather simple page by using the 2x12 Element Borders, one at the top and one at the bottom. I used a heart die-cut with foam adhesive to add some dimension to the bottom strip. A few pictures and a journaling card slipped behind my picture that doubles as a pocket finishes up the page.
And a few more details...
Love You to the Moon
After my ah-ha moment about using the SN@P! Journal Pages, I couldn't wait to tear into the next collection, Hello Baby and see what SN@P! Journal Pages were included and I wasn't disappointed!
Do you see that wooden scallop and the lovely star mat? Yep, those are both SN@P! Journal Pages!
A few fussy cut clouds, moon, and stars to mimic the design on the bottom of the page. Foam adhesive is definitely my friend, I love layering different embellishments!
Another cluster of embellishments finish up the page. I love mixing the chipboard elements with the die-cut pieces, there are so many lovely choices.
Not Sweet, Yucky
Can you spy the SN@P! Journal Pages I used in this layout? I used another to mat my picture and added a border to finish off my design. I couldn't resist using these pictures of my little guy's first taste of green beans and the sweet die-cut and hence my title, 'not sweet, yucky'! He has since this picture was taken learned to eat them without gagging, but he still spits!
I used the 7 month card from the 4x6 designs to document how old my son is here and a few bits and pieces tucked in to draw attention to the 7. I tied my thread in a bow and placed an enamel dot on the top of the flag to give the impression that this was a stick pin.
Some messy string to imitate the mess my little guy was making and a few cute tags and pieces to draw attention to his facial expressions.
Thanks so much for joining me today, I can't wait to see what you discover by thinking out of the box! Stop by my blog for another layout created using the Good Day Sunshine collection, hope to see you there!
