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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
I hope you feel inspired to create your own Christmas album. This is such a fun project to do and products from Simple Stories makes it easy!
See you next time!
