Simple Stories: Say Cheese Christmas SN@P! Album

Merry Christmas, friends! Recently, I went to Scrapbook.com to film a few segments for Simple Stories, including the Say Cheese Christmas collection and the SN@P! Binder Bundle available at Scrapbook.com. (You can view the video at the bottom of THIS PAGE at the Scrapbook.com or on their YouTube channel, if you’d like!)

This is a great bundle to use for your Christmas vacation to a Disney destination, but with a few slight adjustments it is versatile enough to use for your at-home holiday memories as well!

I created an album with the kit, adding in the Say Cheese Christmas collection kit so I could use the 12×12 papers to add layers and interactive elements. I also added in a few of my favorite Photo Flips. I’ve had a few requests to post pictures of the individual pages, so here you go! Enjoy!

Below, I scored the top of the 4×4 black castle card to create an interactive flap covering the 4×4 photo beneath.

For this pocket, I scored a piece of patterned paper in half, and then tucked the back panel in the pocket for a fold-over card. This creates additional space for photos and journaling!

I trimmed the top and bottom off of the red confetti dot page included with the SN@P! album to add in a different sized page. (save the top and bottom strips to use as layers in other spots of the album)

The blue card on the red page is scored on the left edge, creating a flap. Use the tab to lift the flap and view more photos!

A simple strip of patterned paper creates a pocket for journal cards and photos!

This z-fold page is a fun way to add interest to your album!

Want to add journaling, but you don’t want everyone to read it. Add it to a tag and then tuck it in between the photos or cards in the pocket pages (like I did behind the green snowman card below).

I used a circle punch to cut out the word “M-E-R-R-Y” from the 2×2 cards for the title on the page below.

Try creating a tri-fold element with a decorative scalloped edge!

13b Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album

Use a craft knife to cut a slit in a page pocket and add hidden journaling that slides out from behind a 4×4 Element card.

The pocket on the right was created by adhering a 4×6 piece of patterned paper to a 4×6 photo. leave the right side blank, creating a pocket for additional photos or journaling. I created a tab for the slide-out photo by folding a punched circle over the edge.

14 Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album15 Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album

Here I used an oval die to cut windows in the red 6×8 SN@P! page. I then adhered it to another page along the top, left, bottom, and horizontal center. I left the right side open as a pocket and placed photos, cut in the shape of tags, in the pockets. You can write your journaling behind the photos on the grid paper. CUTE!

16 Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album17 Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album

On the back of the grid page, I created a large flip-out page by scoring the left edge of a large piece of patterned paper.

This Photo Flip opens downward revealing more photos.

These 4×4 Element cards were scored on opposite sides, creating flaps that open both ways.

18b Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album19 Jana Eubank Simple Stories Say Cheese Christmas SNAP Album

Score 2″x4″ pieces of cardstock and adhere 2″x2″ Element cards on the front of them for lots of little flaps!

Or simply score a journal page vertically to create a narrow page that opens up to reveal your story.

A 4×6 Photo Flip covers the pocket on the bottom of this 6×8 pocket page, opening up to reveal additional photos.

American Crafts: Elementary School Mini Album

Ever since the Shimelle Box of Crayons collection came out I have been wanting to create a school-themed mini album with it. My daughter is graduating from Elementary School this year, and so I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to create an album using her photo from the first day of school each year. It’s so much fun to see my daughter’s growth from year-to-year all in one place!

Jana Eubank American Crafts Shimelle Box of Craryons School Mini Album 1 600

I created the page using my Silhouette Cameo 3 electronic die cutting machine and the cardstock from the Shimelle 12×12 Project Pad. Each year has its own tab and is labeled with a mini tile letter sticker from the Alphabet Stickers Folder.

Each page is decorated with papers from the Box of Crayons 6×6 paper pad. I then fussy-cut several journaling shapes from the 6×8 Writing Pad to use as layers behind the photo for each year. The long crayons at the bottom of each page are also from the 6×8 Writing Pad.

I sized the photos so that four of them would fit on a 4×6 print … this was the perfect size to fit inside the frame die from the Animation Small Die Card set by Motion Crafts.

I had so much fun decorating each page with various stickers from both the Project Pad and the Cardstock Stickers sheet. I mixed in Enamel Dots and gold paperclips (from the Office Bucket Accessory Set – Gold and Black) for added dimension.

My daughter loves her little book! It was the perfect way to commemorate her Elementary School years! This type of project would be a fun keepsake for a graduate as well.

Echo Park Paper: Magic & Wonder Mini Autograph Album

Are you a Disney fan? So am I!!! It is one of my very favorite places to vacation with my family! This week all Disney products are on sale at Scrapbook.com, so I thought  it would be the perfect time to share a Disney Autograph album that I created for Echo Park Paper earlier this summer using the Magic & Wonder collection.

When I was young, I used to LOVE to collect the autographs of all of the Disney characters … and I know many of you enjoy doing that as well! This project is the perfect way to combine your autographs with photos of your favorite characters!

(This project was featured on a short Instagram video on Echo Park’s Instagram page while ago. Click HERE to go to their account and scroll down to find it.)

MAGIC & WONDER AUTOGRAPH ALBUM

Jana Eubank Magic Wonder Disney Autograph Book 1 600

I decorated the front of the die cut album with a couple of the 3×4 cards, a camera cut from the Smile for the Camera paper, stickers, chipboard pieces, enamel dots, and a die cut View Master Circle (Viewfinder Die Set).

Inside the album you will find a tag tucked inside a pocket for each autograph, as well as a place with you posing for a photo with each character. So fun!
