Memory keeping has become increasingly popular over the years with added ease and less time needed to document life memories. Companies are now revolutionizing scrapbooking to create a simple system that combines photo albums and scrapbooking into one. Today I’m going to share with you a quick overview of the Sn@p Studio memory keeping line – the easy scrapbook!
- Sn@p Binder
- Sn@p Pocket Pages
- Sn@p Stickers
- Typeset Letters Stickers
- Sn@p Stamps
- Sn@p Brads
- Silhouette Machine (optional)
- Embellishments (optional but are a great way to add a little fun into your layouts)
I enjoy these type of easy scrapbook memory keeping systems because they are as easy as filing a photo album and they can be as simple or embellished as you’d like. This means I can spend literally 2 minutes on a layout or 30 if I want to get creative and add all the pizzazz I want. I tend to keep a fairly simple, clean layout with few embellishments, but that’s just my personal style. I’ll share more details on easy scrapbooking with the layouts below.
First off, you’ll need a binder and pocket pages. The binder is 6×8 inches and comes with a kit to get you started. The kit includes 8 color coordinating Sn@p pages, 3 kraft chipboard dividers, and 10 pocket pages in 5 different styles. This kit is perfect for documenting a Summer vacation, event, or trip. You can also add more pocket pages if you’d like.
I decided to document our Summer with this easy scrapbook binder and wanted to create sections for each child with the page dividers. I created a layout of my son on the actual chipboard divider by adding the cards as a background to my image. You can see that I used several different Sn@p Studio embellishments including the wash tape stickers, brads, and typeset letters. I also used the two point flag punch at the top. The wood veneers and thickers were from my scrapbooking stash and not part of the Sn@p Studio line.
This layout is very simple, with few embellishments added. When I trimmed my picture down to 3×4 inches and added the cards, I was tempted to leave it as is. The great thing about the cards is that the graphics are great and can be left as is, without looking incomplete. I went back later and added a few things like the flag punch, a brad, wash tape sticker, and HELLO sticker.
With this layout, I used the cards to create embellishments for a set of cards. Are you with me? I cut the cards to about 2 inches and glued them to the center of the 3×4 cards. Then finished the easy scrapbook layout with stickers, washi stickers, and a hexagon shape (you can use a punch, die, or electronic cutting machine like a Silhouette).
I’m the kind of girl that can’t sit during a car trip and do nothing. This is why I’m excited about my Sn@p Pouch to hold cards and embellishments in. We’re headed out of state next week and I’m thinking this album will be complete before I get home. 🙂
If you’re like me and trying to catch up on year’s worth of pictures without the time to create individual scrapbook layouts, I highly recommend Sn@p Studio for easy scrapbooking. It’s a fun system that anyone can work with and doesn’t require a lot of time to create a layout.
