Hello friends, it’s Dorymar today and I’m super excited to share with you my first Sn@p! Flipbook!  I am so in love with the new Simple Stories Flipbooks and the Bro & Co Collection.  I have two girls and making this project was a challenge for me because I wanted it to look super fun and youthful. But the collection helped me a lot because it is just fantastic!

I decided to use a black flipbook because is the perfect match for this collection. On the cover, I wanted to showcase the papers from this kit and of course the assortment of colors. That’s why I used a few patterned papers for my background and created a few layers.  The collection has the funniest and most youthful elements I have ever seen, so I used as many as I could to make my cover look perfect.

The flipbook allows you to add many pages and pocket pages because the binding system expands as you add. I used a lot of the really cute foam stickers because I love to add dimension to my project, I made a piece with a 1/2 "piece of chipboard and black cardstock folded and perforated in coordination with the pocket pages to bring more space to my dimensional pages.  So that the flipbook was not too open.

The flipbooks includes 10 pocket pages, but I love to create my own pages, to make them I used black cardstock from my stash and punched and scored to match with the bend of the pocket pages. This allowed me to have more space and to be able to use all of this beautiful collection.

I reduced one of the pocket pages from 6x8 to 4x8 to make two fun flip outs.

One of the elements that I adore about the collections of Simple Stories are the new foam stickers. They are super practical to add phrases, titles, and beautiful elements and dimension in the project. Here you can see how attractive they are and how they make my page look spectacular.

Flipping pages and pockets are my favorites in my projects, below you will be able you can see my favorite ones that I decorated with the beautiful goodies from this super cool collection.

Look how fun all of the die cuts and stickers from this collection are. They always are the perfect touch for every page.

This collection is too easy to use for any project of your handsome boy.  I hope this project inspires you to create your own!

Happy crafting!


Hello, Simple Stories fans, It’s Dorymar Perez today and I’m super excited to share with you this Album. When I saw the Summer Farmhouse Collection, I was  thrilled with the colors, patterns, and graphics. This is one of my favorite collections this year.  One of the things I liked most about this collection is the Red, I love red, after all it is my favorite color.

I knew that a bright red binder was the perfect combination with the collection. So, I used the Summer Farmhouse 6x8 Paper pad to decorate the cover of my Snap Album.  I used a few different snap cards to create the layers and the title of my album and then, I fussy cut the big bunch of flowers included in one of the 6x8 papers to decorate the left side of my album.  I then added a dimensional adhesive on the back of my pieces to add dimension.

For the first page, I used one of the snap dividers and folded it at 4” to create an open side flap. To decorate it, I used the gorgeous washi tape of the collection and created the title with the new red foam alphas.  

For my first layout I used one of my favorite papers of this collection, I love how the colorful flowers stand out on the light blue background. I highlighted the page by adding layers from papers of the collection and created a small cluster on the right side of my photo mat, then I added the title which is included in the bits and pieces. I love how the red stands out in the yellow gingham paper.

I love to add folding elements in my albums for extra space and interest.  For the page above, I used a piece from one of the original page dividers of the snap to create an open flap and combined it with the die cuts, letters, and chipboards. I added a red and white baker twine to give it a personal touch.

The die cuts of this collection have an important role because they are highlighted in any of the patterns. This is the perfect collection to document your summer photos. Have you ever seen a truck as cute as this one?

To create the big pocket, I reduced one on the 6x8 paper from the paper pad to 6.75” and made a diagonal cut. Then I fussy cut the I love summer heart from one of the 4x4 journaling cards to decorate it. Inside the pocket, I added one tag and one card which was decorated with the beautiful patterned papers of the collection.

I love the colors in this collection!!  That touch of navy blue between the yellow, red and sky blue gives it an amazing look!

Pockets and flaps = more space and a lot of pictures! YAY!

Inside I had a lot of fun with this collection. The striking colors and beautiful goodies of the collection really highlight each of the spaces in this project.

Definitely this is the perfect collection for this summer, in it you will be able to document your outdoor activities with your family and friends. I hope my project inspires you to use the beautiful Summer Farmhouse Collection.

Thanks for stopping by today!


Hello friends, it’s Dorymar today and I’m sharing a beautiful Snap Album with the new Simple Vintage Coastal Collection. I’m from the Caribbean and when I saw the collection I freaked out with the gorgeous patterns and beautiful tropical flowers. 

On the cover, I used the “Let’s Get Lost” paper because has a beautiful vintage design and I didn’t need too much decoration to my cover. Then I selected one of the 4x4 cards and used it as the title of my project. Closer to the title I added some gorgeous pieces from the die cuts and stickers. To add a beautiful texture, I added a little bit of gesso and some mini art stones to give the ocean look.

The designs in this collection are very tropical and have many beautiful images perfect to combine to any pictures from your travel to the Caribbean or any coastal visit. On my first divider, I used one of the 6x8 paper included in the 6x8 paper pad as a background, then I just added a beautiful banner and some die cuts, and my page was ready. The elements are so beautiful, this brings you the opportunity to make your pages so fast.

I love to use many elements from the collection to decorate my pages, here you can see how on the sides of my photo mats I made some clusters to give a perfect touch to the project.

One of the new elements that Simple Stories brings for this summer are the Foam Alpha Stickers, they come in many colors and are perfect for adding your own titles on the pages. In this project, I used the green ones and you will be able to see how they make the page stand out.  They have the perfect size to use it in any project.

What I love most about snaps are the pocket pages, being able to combine the cards and pieces that I will use with the designs I prepared for my pages, is so fun! I love to adhere stickers and die cuts on the pocket page to highlight the designs and my photos.

I used the pages with lines included in the album and make a few 3x4 cards to add journaling, then I decorated with the beautiful sticker included in the 4x6 Sticker Book.  The sticker pad is perfect to add beautiful sentiments and decoration to the spreads.

On this page I fussy cut the side of one of the 6x8 paper because it has a lovely coastal scene, I added it with foam tape on the side of my photo mat and looks like they come together. This page is perfect to document a beautiful photo from the ocean.

The banners of the collection are perfect to add photos or just to add your journaling. In this case I used one of the 2x2 cards with a beautiful sentiment and added it to the frame.

I hope you’ve got some inspiration from this project and use the new Simple Vintage Coastal Collection to create a beautiful project to document your lovely memories on the coast.
