Hi, Odessa here with a fun project I love been working on with the So Happy Together collection from Simple Stories! Full of gorgeous patterns, fabulous colours and all kinds of icons and phrases and more perfect for all kinds of everyday family stories.
I’ve been into mini albums a bit lately and wanted to try something new. The Blush SN@P! Binder goes so well with the colours in the collection that it was an easy choice. Because the binder has a chipboard cover it was really easy to turn into a 3x8 binder! I just measured (twice of course) and cut it down. So easy! I then covered the chipboard with the dot pattern from the Happy Heart cardstock. I love how it looks. There are so many good patterned cardstock sheets in So Happy Together it was hard to choose which one to cover my binder in!
Once it was covered I added some of the chipboard stickers from the 6x12 Chipboard sheet to embellish it.
On the inside I had fun playing with different kinds of pages and layers. Here I have a full sized photo and one of the Vertical Page Protectors with spots for 3x3 photos. I cut a 3x3 square from the 2x2 Elements Cardstock to make a card to fill the pocket. I added some cute hearts to finish it up. I love a collection with lots of hearts! Finally I used the tab stickers from the Combo Sticker sheet. I like to use those on smaller layers.
I kept it simple on my full photo with some phrase stickers to add some words to my layout while keeping it neat. And a nice chipboard heart that matches the cardstock I used to cover the album.
Here is the other side of the vertical page protector and one of the larger page protectors I cut down. It normally has 2- 4x6 pockets but I cut it in half and used the scallop border from the Combo Sticker sheet to close it up. I love the added layer that edge adds!
For this 3x3 pocket I layered torn strips of the coordinating Simple Basics cardstock to create a rainbow of the main colours in the collection and used one of the Bits & Pieces with a camera on it in the middle.
My final layout has more of those gorgeous dots. I can’t get enough of them! I cut down and hole punched a page from the 6x8 Pad for a more traditional layout.
I tore some cardstock strips to put on top of my background. I love a good torn edge! I used some Bits & Pieces and various stickers from the So Happy Together collection to add some journaling.
The doily shape in the Bits & Pieces is so cute, I had to use it! Using other die cuts and cardstock from the collection I turned it into a cute ribbon! I had so much fun documenting some family memories with the gorgeous colours and style of So Happy Together.
