Simple Stories Scrapbooking in a Snap | Monday Craft Madness #25

Posted by Melodee Cloud

Simple Stories has brought Scrapbooking in a Snap to a whole new level. The Snap Pages and Memorabilia Pockets helped create a quick and easy family album. I chose the Harvest Lane collection with the 6x6 paper pad, Snap Pages and Memorabilia Pockets. The reduced designs in the 6x6 pad are perfect for layering. That is this week's Monday Craft Madness Theme:


Layering is a great way to get more color and pattern to your projects. Recently we had an awesome how to from Charissa Miller showing how she layers on her projects. I was a bit inspired and created this family mini album. Introducing the Perry Family...


I used different sizes and shapes of different patterns from the 6x6 pads to create the layers around the photo. The 6x8 Snap Pages are the perfect size for this album of family pictures.


Use the Memorabilia Pockets to add extra tags, notes or other items to your album


The patterns on the Snap Pages make for easy pages. Use the base pattern as one of your layers.



Now go get layering! It's a fast and easy way to add interest to your projects.
