Simple Stories - I (heart) Summer - The Scrapbook Store

 Hey everyone - I have an 'end of week share' for The Scrapbook Store.  I've been creating with the wonderful collection - I (heart) Summer by Simple Stories.  I say this about a lot of collections - but this one is AMAZING in so many ways.
Today I have a treat for you and am sharing how I've incorporated a mini album and a Sn@p pocket all on the one page!
Here is my page:
 My base cardstock is the 12x12 pattern paper that is shown at the top of this collection in the store (unfortunately it's sold out!) - it's has a great banner scene already printed on the page and a great wood grain look.
I've teamed this paper up with one of the Sn@p pockets - this one is the large pocket!
 And I've created a mini album to go inside the pocket ☺  I will first share some close-up's of the main page:
 These gorgeous flair badges are from the I (heart) Summer collection - I think I've already used nearly all of them!! ☺
 I've used some of the stickers from the Expressions Cardstock Stickers and outlined in black pen.  I've also used a large punch - an old favourite - Martha Stewart Daisy Fan.
 Here is a view of the pocket with the mini album inside.
 And the front cover of the mini album:  I've decorated with some of the pattern papers, a flair badge, layered sticker, alphabet stickers,  the Hello Script Die-cut, flair badge and some twine!
 Here I've given you a quick tutorial on how I made my mini album - all that is required is a 12x12 sheet of white cardstock!
 And here is the inside of the album - each of the sections has been decorated with photo's pattern papers, stickers and a flair badge. A lot of the papers are from the Sn@p cards - a little booklet of pattern papers and quotes!  I've kept it quite flat so the album does not get too bulky as it has to fit inside the pocket.
Here are some close-up's: of each section:



Each section folds into each other and finishes as a 14 cm square mini album - a very quick and easy project if you want to use lots of photo's from one event and keep it to one page!  I hope you enjoyed this and possibly feel inspired to make your own ☺

All of these products can be found online at The Scrapbook Store - pop over and take a look ☺
Thanks for coming by ♥
