Simple Stories has brought Scrapbooking in a Snap to a whole new level.  The Snap Pages and Memorabilia Pockets helped create a quick and easy family album.  I chose the Harvest Lane collection with the 6×6 paper pad, Snap Pages and Memorabilia Pockets.  The reduced designs in the 6×6 pad are perfect for layering.  That is this week’s Monday Craft Madness Theme:

Layering

Layering is a great way to get more color and pattern to your projects.  Recently we had an awesome how to from Charissa Miller showing how she layers on her projects.  I was a bit inspired and created this family mini album.  Introducing the Perry Family…

I used different sizes and shapes of different patterns from the 6×6 pads to create the layers around the photo.  The 6×8 Snap Pages are the perfect size for this album of family pictures.

Use the Memorabilia Pockets to add extra tags, notes or other items to your album

The patterns on the Snap Pages make for easy pages.  Use the base pattern as one of your layers.

Now go get layering!  It’s a fast and easy way to add interest to your projects.
