Hello everyone!  Dorymar here today sharing a beautiful 8x6 Sn@p Album, I designed with the colorful Cruisin’ Collection.  When I saw this collection, I fell in love instantly with the primary colors, elements, and designs.   My favorite color is red, and this collection have a ton of beautiful embellishments with this color. That’s why I decide to use the Red Snap Binder to work with this collection!

To design the cover, I used Lost at the Sea Paper as a background and a combination of various embellishment from the combo sticker and 6x12 chipboard stickers.  I select the Let’s Cruise sticker as a title for my Sn@p and jute ribbon to give the nautical touch! All the elements are so beautiful that they are very easy to place, they look fantastic!

I started the pages of the album, giving space to that traditional photo that you take in the corridor on the way to the ship. Letting know that you will see next will be magnificent. Here you can see the famous sea phrase "Bon Voyage", the flags and the anchor all of them are from the 6x12 chipboard stickers, they are so useful and fun.  I glued all of elements cluster to the photo mat using foam tape to give dimension. 

This collection is so beautiful that I had infinite ideas to create this project and make it fun. That's why I decided to create my own embellishments using several pieces of the collection.   

In this page I cut out some strips from the border of the paper for the background in combination with other pieces cut from paper.  Then I add my little fun DIY embellishments for finishing touches. They look so beautiful!

In these spreads you can see how I used some of pieces cut out from the gorgeous paper from the collection and create layers behind the pictures.  I chose to add cluster my DIY’s embellishments and some phrases from the chipboard sticker and stickers sheet around of the photo mats.

The 4x6 Stickers Sheets have a lot of fun phrases and cute elements. In these spread I used some of them to decorate cluster on the left side of the photo mat. I also added fun phrases from the Sticker Sheet and accents with the enamel dots and beautiful stars from the from the bits and pieces.

One of the elements that I liked the most, were the adorable whales, on this page I used them in combination with the big heart with the beautiful phrase "you, me & the sea" to document that photo with your favorite person. Isn’t adorable? This is the perfect collection to document your vacations aboard a cruise, it has magnificent elements, colors and fun phrases. I hope this project inspires you to work with this beautiful collection.


Hi everyone!  It's Dorymar, back to share my Summer Sn@p album with you.  The Sunshine and Blue Skies Collection is so fun, the colors, all the palm trees, the sun, the phrases are amazing.  These pages were especially fun for me to create because Summer is my favorite season. I’m from the Caribbean and the warm weather, beaches and sand are my life.

When I first saw the New Robins Eggs Sn@p Binder it goes perfectly with this collection.  One of the things I love the most in creating a Sn@p Album it’s to decorate the cover.  In this case I use the cute pool people from the Bits and Pieces and the colorful surf boards form the 4x6 card and put them together.  Then I added the Summer Word from the Sticker Sheet and the results were fantastic.

Another thing that I like best about Sn@p binders is the natural color because I can paint it and combine it with any collection. In this case I painted all the edges of the binder and the dividers with white color that go perfectly with this collection.

The binders have a lot of space for photos and to document stories, but I always like to add custom pockets and flaps for photos. In the spread on the right side I create a flap with the 3x4 card and in the other side I put some pieces to gives a different touch. I love the tags, always in my projects you can find them in any space.  In this case in the 6x8 layout, I used the 4x4 card to create a pocket with a tag.  I add ribbons and elements of the collection to give a fun look. 

Also, I love to create layouts inside the binder using the dividers of the binder as a base. This adds fun spaces for photos and other ways of working with the elements of the collection. I love how all the elements match together and how they look with all the layers.

I created a flap using the Navy/Emerald paper as a base to add space for picture and journaling, the fun 2x2 cards have many fun summer phrases. I decorated the belly band with a few die cuts from the bits and pieces.

I used the fun pieces of the collection to create a fun collage on the left side of the space for a picture, then added some word stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet to decorate it. 

For the full page 6x8 layout I embellished with the chipboard stickers and some coordinating bits to keep that summer feel.   

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!


Hello everyone!!! Its Dorymar here today sharing a colorful Snap album with the AMAZING “Oh Happy Day Collection”. I love all the elements in this collection, they are so beautiful!

I selected the new Pink Snap Binder for this project because it is very bright and matches perfect with this collection. One of the things I enjoy most when I am preparing a Snap Album, is to make the cover. In this case the theme of the album is life, happiness and moments.

For the cover I used many elements of the collection and added many layers to make the project more fun!  I used pieces from die cuts, chipboards, stickers, 3x4, 4x4 and 2x2 journaling cards. I love how the elements, colors and designs combine perfectly to make a wonderful project! 

I enjoy creating full scrapbook page so the snap dividers and the 6x8 spread give me the space I need to create a smaller scrapbook page.  I love how I can add elements and message clusters of my photos and journaling space.

The sticker sheet, 2x2 cards and die cuts are perfect for embellishing. The papers are perfectly coordinated to mix and match, in these pages you can see how the different patterns of the collection kit look and give you a lot to play with. I gave a final touch adding enamel dots and washi tape. I love the results!

I love the colors in this collection!!  That touch of black between the pink, green and teal give an amazing look!

One of the things I love the most is to make my personalized spreads, I combine the 4x4 cards with the 2x2 cards and to add more fun space. This allows me to create shakers between the photos, journaling and decorations.  Looks fantastic!

In this case I cut the 6x8 spread at 4 ¾ “and created four 2x2 spaces and one 4x4 space, then I added some cards and sequins.  It’s so fun! 

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

Happy scrapping!
