2017 Album with Simple Stories Faith

Happy Memorial Day everyone! It's Traci, back to share my latest Sn@p album with you.  I decided to make an album that highlights my life in 2017.  Everything from time spent with family and friends, to trips and celebrations.  I also wanted to incorporate my spiritual side ... prayers, bible study notes, etc.  The Simple Stories Faith collection was perfect for all of this.

I used white card stock, and covered it with papers from the Faith 12x12 collection, as well as the 6x8 paper pad.  The title on one of the 3x4 elements cards, "Hope, Faith, and Miracles" was perfect for my cover, especially since we welcomed a new little miracle to our family last year.  

I really like incorporating the 4x6 vertical page protectors into my Sn@p albums ... it allows me to include extra journaling spots, photos, and the collection's awesome 4x6 element cards. 

Our little miracle doesn't look too happy in this photo, lol. 😉

I make a lot of flip cards and pockets in my albums.  I think it makes the album more interesting, and it help me to get more photos and journaling on my pages.

This "Pray" sticker is from the 4x6 Faith sticker package.  These packs are great because they have alpha/number stickers, tabs, icons and small captions that are perfect for smaller spaces like mini albums and planners.

These photos are from a recent trip my husband and I took to Greenville, SC with some friends.  We went on a Segway tour of the city.  If you've never done this, do it!  It's a lot of fun,  and pretty easy after 10 minutes of practice.  

For Mother's Day we visited my in laws in Chattanooga.  I usually don't take tons of photos on weekend trips, so my Sn@p album pockets are perfect for documenting the highlights.  The chipboard globe in the Faith collection reminds me of travel .... so cute!

What can I say ... this little sweetness has my heart!  Having a granddaughter has been one of the biggest joys in my life.  I'm sure when I look back on my 2017 album in the future, most of the photos will be of her, lol!  

Well thanks for letting me share a few pages of my 2017 album with you!   Here is a list of the products I used:

Zoo Scrapbook Album Kit, Doodlebug At The Zoo

Hey everyone! I have an awesome new kit to share with you. Lions, and Tigers, and Bears Oh MY!  But there's no need to fear with all of these cuties in the Doodlebug zoo!
For the cover of this mini, I layered paper from the 6x6 paper pad and the leaf side of a roly poly panda 12x12 sheet.   Lots of cute zoo animals and some chunky twine made the cover even more fun!

I love the 6x6 prints for mini albums ... but I also used some 12x12 sheets like the At the Zoo sheet shown in the flip-up card above.

I just love black, white, red, and lime green together.  So some red card stock and a tiny little red heart punch added some cute pops of color on these black and white pages.

Thanks for stopping by today!!
