Hello Friends! It’s Dorymar back on the blog today to share a beautiful 6X8 Sn@p Album I designed with the stunning So Happy Together.   I fell in love with this collection as soon as I saw it: flowers, hearts, pastel colors, they work beautifully together! This collection is perfect to document memories of your family and friends, so here is my fun project!

This collection is full of beautiful pastel colors, that's why I selected the new 6x8 Blush Sn@p Binder, because it combines perfectly well with the collection.

The collection is dedicated to home, family and friends, on the cover I wanted to capture the main theme for what I’ll use this project, THE FAMILY. I used several elements of the collection to make the perfect combination. On the cover I used 6x8 papers, die cuts of the ephemera packs, chipboard, 3x4 journaling cards, etc.  All are glued with foam tape to create layers and each element can stand out perfectly.

For my first page I created an open up flap using the Sn@p page as a base and a 6x8 patterned paper from the 6x8 Paper Pad. I created two holes at the top of the page to add a beautiful ribbon, I selected the FAMILY word and a cute sentiment from the Sticker Sheet as a title.  I added cute bunch of flowers and white twine to finish it up!

On left page I added two removable mats using magnets. On the top they have space for photos and on the back there is space for the journal. For the layout on the right, I used as a base one of the 6x8 patterned paper, I cut different sizes of paper to create fun layers behind the photo mat.  I decorated around with stickers.

 I used some embellishments from the collection to create small cluster in the center of the page. They match perfectly together.

I love to create a different size of pages inside my albums, on the right page I reduced one of the pages of the album to 4.5 and used a 4x6 journaling card as a mat for the photo. Around it I incorporated messages from the mini sticker tablet, die cuts and the beautiful family word from the chipboard stickers.

On the back of the page I created two pockets.  To made them, I glued the 4x6 card from the front of the page with a pocket to the side and on the back, I glued the 4x4 card creating a pocket on the top. I used several paper sizes to create the inserts and tag.

The collection has many cute house elements, for this layout, I created clusters with the embellishments of the collection to simulates a house living room. They look super cool.

Since I love to have space for a lot of photos, I added a few flaps.  This gave me more space for extra photos.   

These two pages are ones of my favorites because I love the patterns, the colors and, the embellishments.  I was able to use many of my favorite beautiful elements of the collection and it has space for many photos.

Here are a few close-ups of the spreads.  As you can see, I used many of the collection’s beautiful embellishments.

I hope I've inspired you to document your home and family memories in a fun snap album with the fantastic So Happy Together collection.

Hi friends, It’s Dorymar today I’m back to share with you a super colorful and fun mini album with the Say Cheese Christmas Collection.  This collection between the bright colors has a touch of black, this is why I selected the 6x8 Black Leather Album .

For the cover I used a red and white stripe 1.5” ribbon and created a big bow in the top edge of the album.  I added three jingle bells in the center of the bow and hanging with twine I added a tag with a Christmas feeling. For the title I used the Merry Christmas Sticker.

This album doesn’t include the page dividers so I went ahead and incorporated my own.  To create the page divider on the right I selected the b-side of the Magical Holidays paper and cut it at 6x8.  In the top, I added a 3¾x12 stripe folded at 3 and 6 to create an open side belly band.   The belly band hold a 5x7 card to add my pictures and journal.

I created a fun cluster of die cuts at the top of the belly band to open it.  The inside of the belly band has space for three pictures (one 5x3” and two 2.5x3”).  For the title of this page I used the “merry” word from the chipboard stickers.

In the following pages I incorporated de Fun Words metal dies to from the Say Cheese 4 Collection.   I think they are very practical, and you can use them as many times as you can.  For the right page, I had to cut the FUN word from the Magical Holidays paper and then, I used the Making Spirits Bright as a base and two more different patterned papers for additional layers.  Then I decorated it with die cuts and phrase stickers.

These pages are one of my favorites in this project, on the left page I created a flap that opens to the side with one of the 4x6 cards that the collection includes. For the pocket page on the left I had to cut the word "magic" in black and created a beautiful background incorporating twine and buttons.

I created the page on the right reducing the "Best Christmas Ever" paper to 10 ¾ x 8” and folded it in 6” to create an open side page.  On top of the page, I created a 4x4 pocket with one of the 4x4 journaling cards.  I added some of the fun die cuts with foam tape to decorate it.

One of the traditions of Christmas is to give gifts to your family and friends, that is why in Christmas collections gifts can’t be missing. For the left page I made some gift pockets and when you pull up the top of the gift you discover space to add your photos and your journal. Its super cute and fun. 

I decorated the top of the gifts with the beautiful poinsettias flowers that the bits and pieces pack includes, all are glued with foam tape to give the dimension that I love so much.

I can't stop incorporating the beautiful 2x2 cards that the collection includes, all are full of beautiful designs. I added to my album one 2x2 Insta-Pocket Pages to add space for this stunning 2x2 cards.  They look fantastic!

You will love this collection for any of your holiday fun photos, it’s colorful, bright, fun and so beautiful!!! Thanks for stopping by and I hope this project inspired you to create your own one!

Happy Crafting!

Hi friends, it’s Dorymar and today I will share with you the cutest Christmas Sn@p Album with the Holly Jolly Collection. The collection has very bright colors, but I felt in love with the blush pink touch. 

I selected the Red Stripe 6x8 Designer Binder because I think it matches perfectly with the collection. To create the cover, I selected various patterned papers from the 6x8 paper pad. I love layers!

To create the central focus, I fussy cut the cute Santa from the 4x4 journaling card and closer him I adhered with dimensional tape the 3x4 journaling card with the Christmas sentiment.  For the finishing touches I adhered a few die cuts cluster to the Santa, some enamel dots, ribbon, twine and glitter to the flowers and Santa’s clothes.

As this binder didn’t have dividers, I decided to create some with the Simple Basic Paper Kit. I also incorporated several Photo Booklets to have more space in my album, you know it is Christmas time and we take infinite photos.  In the layout on the right you can see that I made an open up flap and to decorate it I used a combination between stickers and die cuts. On this page you can put about 5 pictures and has space for your journaling.

I also created pages of different sizes, here you can see two of the pages that can be opened and houses a lot of space for photos.

The Christmas elements that I’ve used for this are beautiful.

In the layout on the right you can see how beautiful pink looks among the Christmas colors. In this page I created my own borders with a few die cuts and the lovely Santa sticker.

To decorate the outside of the photo booklets, I selected three different color papers from the Basic Kit and recreate a typical scene that I see during the Christmas season: snow, dry trees, snowman and beautiful houses with snow in their roof. To add a little texture, I created the snow with the crystal drops by Nuvo, they look fantastic!

I loved the 2x2 elements that this collection brings, they all have beautiful graphics and feelings, perfect for the occasion. In the spread on the left I selected some of my favorites, which describe only the theme of the project and has a space for two 3x3 pictures. Those spread are my favorites.

You all know I love pockets! For this big pocked I created two beautiful inserts that simulate gifts. And they also have room for more photo and journaling!!!

Here you can see the gifts, one is 4”x4” and the other is 3.5”x6”, both have photo cards in the inside. For the top I used the beautiful bow clips from the collection. They help to take out the photo cards.  I loved the result when I saw them, they are so funny!

I Hope this inspired you to create more beautiful projects to celebrate the Holidays with your loved ones!

Happy crafting!
