Hello, Simple Stories fans! It's Dorymar here sharing a lovely SN@P! Album created with the My Valentine Collection.  This collection is so gorgeous! It has a wonderful mix of vintage elements and beautiful colors.

I selected the 6x8 Red Snap Binder for this project because it matches perfectly with the collection and highlights the beautiful colors. For the cover, I used many elements and added layers to make the project more fun!

I used pieces from the Combo Sticker, Die Cuts, Chipboards, Mini Sticker Tablet and paper from the 6x8 paper pad to decorate the cover.   I love how the elements, colors, and designs combine perfectly to make a wonderful project.

I love creating my own divider pages, in this case, I will share ideas on how you can customize the pages included in the Snap Binder. 

The collection includes beautiful layered frames with various designs that make the task of decorating easier.  I adhered all the die cuts with dimensional tape to create layers and highlight each element. I distressed the edges of the papers to continue giving the vintage touch to the project. Also, I added twine and staples to incorporate texture into the page.

One of the typical things we see in the Valentine's collections are the mailboxes, because it’s one of the seasons that we send cards to our loved ones. I used one of the papers from the paper pad and drew a mailbox to create a beautiful page divider in my album.

This mailbox has a pocket on the top and has two beautiful tags to add photos or journaling.  On the front it has a flap that opens and allows more space for memorabilia. It’s so gorgeous!

One of the things I love about snap albums is that the page dividers have various patterns and colors and allows me to play with them. In this case I created a giant tag to change the pattern of the album and make it fun.

A giant heart couldn’t be missing in this project, I used another page divider and draw a heart to continue incorporating versatility and more space for photos to my project.

I selected one of the 6x8 papers and cut part of a heart to make a pocket, I decorated the front with the love word on chipboard and closer I adhered stickers flowers.

Inside the heart pocket, I included two tags, which I’ve decorated and created areas which will be perfect to add pictures or journal.

In this page divider, I created a big flap on front with space for a lot of photos, on the side I placed a beautiful border that includes the sticker sheet and on the side where there is space for the photos I incorporated die cuts, tape and a button.

I hope you enjoyed the project and I also hope it inspired you to use this fun collection. Please come join us on Social Media @simplestories_ and myself @dorymar_pl.

Happy scrapping!


Hi crafty friends, It’s Dorymar today with a super fun Sn@p Album with the Hey Crafty Girl Collection! This collection is seriously perfect for all crafty girls.  It’s just fantastic! 

For the cover I want to recreate a craft room, to create it I used one of the 4x6 journaling cards in combination with the gorgeous chipboard stickers. I put all of them in 3d foam dots to create layers and dimension. I love how they look together.

The mini was decorated with all the beautiful patterned papers, ephemera die cuts, chipboard pieces, stickers, buttons, ribbons, etc.  Each divider is different from the others, this makes the album very fun.  In this occasion I decided to do something crafty in honor to the collection and created three-dimensional pages.

Inside of this spread, you have space for four pictures, two of them are in dimension. Closer to the photo mats I created a fun cluster with the die cuts and embellishments.

The collection has several crafty girls and I had a lot of fun playing it on different pages. For this spread, in particular, I created an open fold layout and I used the Crafty Girls chipboards as a title, inside of this spread I created a fun dimensional page.

When you open the spread, I’ve got a HUGE 3d pop up!  There is also room for photos or memorabilia to be stored. Closer to the pop up I created little clusters with the die-cut from the ephemera packs. 

Here is a close-up of the spread. The embellishments are so beautiful, I love them all!

This spread is very fun, on the outside I wanted to keep it simple but when you open it is so fun and pretty.

I wanted to showcase the papers in this collection, so I used as much as I could.  When you see each of the pages of this album you fall in love more with the collection. Here I show you some of them.

Many pages are pocket pages with inserts.  So again, LOTS of room for photos!!

This album could not stay if the pocket page for 2x2 cards. I love these pocket pages!

I had a lot of fun designing this project and I hope it inspires you to create your own with the stunning Hey Crafty Girl Collection! Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Crafting!


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.
