This week on the Simple Stories blog, it's Sn@p week with many of the Simple Stories designers sharing their Sn@p albums. Today it's my turn to share with you my album.
I have been searching for a while now for that perfect something to help ease me into the overwhelming task of memory keeping the piles of photos I have accumulated and was so happy to hear about Sn@p Life from Simple Stories. The system is easy with so many fun and coordinating elements to help make the process doable, not to mention how vibrant and playful the whole collection is.
My album today starts with my little girl's 2nd birthday and will document events in her 2nd year of life.
One of the many things I love about Sn@p Life is the Memorabilia pockets available in many different colors and sizes. I'm a big fan of touch, feel, and explore when it comes to paper-crafting of any type, so for me pockets are a must.
This pocket holds a tag where I've included my journaling about this photo. I have to admit that my biggest obstacle in starting out is to learn to love and accept my own handwriting. It's a little hard to get used to, but oh, so important!
I also mixed in the Year.o.graphy collection here and there as I feel it coordinates so perfectly with other elements in Sn@p Life.
Here's another Memorabilia Pocket on a larger scale...a perfect place for extra photos, ephemera, children's artwork, etc.
I had so much fun adding in washi tape from Freckled Fawn in certain spots as it adds just the right touch without it being too much.
And, in order to make sure I keep going on my album, I figured it was best to keep all of my supplies out and organized in a way that made them easy to get to. We all know how hard it is to wrap things up and tuck them away for another day...if you're like me, if my supplies are out of sight, then I tend to forget about them. So, I've assembled a Sn@p Space for all of the supplies I am using on this album...always there and always ready!
Two Peas in a Bucket has a wonderful selection of these supplies available HERE.
Until next time!
P.S. There are so many wonderful ideas on the Simple Stories blog showcasing other Sn@p albums. You'll love checking them out.
