It's Dorymar here today and I'm sharing a Snap Album with you using Simple Vintage Garden District collection. I wanted to create something different for this album. I love using collections like this because they make my creativity fly. I am fascinated by working with bright and colorful collections, but this collection is different, it is full of pastel colors, butterflies, flowers and many vintage patterns. This is another style that I love working with, vintage, shabby chic style where I can incorporate different textures into my album.
For the cover, I incorporated many textures with the beautiful patterned paper from the collection. I mixed up lace, burlap, stencil paste, orange blossoms, and doilies. I added layers using some chipboard stickers and bits & pieces from the collection.
For the different spreads, I used only the snap dividers and make a beautiful vintage look with many layers, lace, and textures. I ripped the edges of some pieces of paper and added some different patterns behind the photo mats. I feel like the papers from this collection go together very well with all the things I added to create this project.
Below you can see in detail some close ups from the album. This collection has so many beautiful elements, that when you create a cluster around the photo mats to decorate, they create an exquisite and wonderful look.
I used an edge punch in combination with the solid papers in the collection to create another lace style. Layering different elements on my page created a wonderful dimension and gives it a beautiful texture when using different pieces.
I prepared these pieces you see below to insert them in my 6x8 pocket pages, what I do with them is reduce the pocket pages to their size and this gives a different touch to my project.
Here is another close-up, you can see the ripped edges. I added some pop dots underneath to create more shadows and dimension.
I love personalizing my pocket pages, below you can see how I incorporated the beautiful pieces of the collection with the journaling cards to create beautiful designs around my photo mats.
The Simple Vintage Garden District collection encapsulates everything we love about Spring with its color palette and beautiful, vintage look. It was so much fun creating this album!
