Simple Stories Summer Days Sn@p Album

Hi everyone!  I'm back to share a new Simple Stories Sn@p album with you.  This one is for my family's 2013 trip to Hawaii.  I love the bright colors in the Summer Days collection and it worked perfectly for these photos.  As you can see, like many of you, I am a bit behind on my scrapbooking!
If you like pocket scrapbooking, but never know what to do with the full 6x8 sleeve, check out a few of these ideas ... 

Add a fold out card to the front of the page.  Not only is it a fun place to use the 4x6 vertical cards (as I did below), but it also allows you to get 2-3 full 4x6 photos on a 6x8 page!
Here are a few more examples of how I use the 6x8 pages ... 
I like adding different sized pages in my albums.  I think it adds interest and a different element as you flip through the book.  Below, I cut one of the 6x8 pages (included in the Sn@p album) in half vertically, and then added some stickers and photos.  These 1/2 pages are also great places for journaling!
One of my favorite embellishments is chipboard.  In the photo below, I added the arrow and burger to the outside of the plastic.  This works great if you want to overlap two of the pockets!

While in Hawaii, we took a helicopter tour.  I highly recommend it for beautiful photos of the island.  If you have two 3x4 pockets side-by-side (below), don't be afraid to cut your photo in half and insert 1/2 into each pocket.  Again, I think this adds some fun interest to the book.


I guess I need to fill out my summer bucket list ... especially since summer will be over before I know it! 

Here are the products I used for this album:

Until next time, happy scrapping!!
