Hello There Summer!

Hello There Summer!
Hello friends, this is @nicolemartel1978 here to share a SNAP album using a few of my favorite pictures from our vacation at the Outer Banks two summers ago. We are going again this year so I wanted to leave some pages blank so I can add some more pictures after our trip! I used the newest summer collection, Summer Snapshots to create this fun album!
The embellishments in this collection are super fun and I used so many… they are super cute and I just love the color scheme! I used foam squares to pop some of the die cuts up for dimension and added a few gems to the center of the lemons just for fun.
I really wanted to make each page pop throughout this album. I LOVE scrapbooking summer pictures and I think it shows! Another thing I tried to do was create a few multi-photo spreads because they are always fun.
I used a variety of floral rub-ons and layered chipboards on this spread. I especially love the beach ball patterned paper-SO CUTE.
There are a few pocket pages, too. I like to mix it up and add a variety of spreads throughout the album! I cut a photo down to 3x4 and added a few embellishments to the center of the photo for one of the pocket pages. I used a tag from the cut-apart tag sheet with a photo and more fun embellishments for the other pocket. Next, I used the multi-square cards as a fun page at the bottom. I used part of the photo in the first pocket for the bottom. Isn’t this fun?!
Here is the other side of the pocket page. I used a variety of foam stickers and chipboard to embellish the 4x6 journaling card.
I always like to include a fun title page using a sheet from the 6x8 paper pads. I added a few Decorative Brads and chipboard at the bottom to add dimension.
I added lots of rub-on elements on the ledger paper so that I can add some journaling inside the album.
I snapped this photo of me and my hubby in the pool and Moxie wanted to join us. He’s so photogenic…me, not so much. I matted the photo using the chipboard frame and tucked a tag slightly behind the frame. I added the chipboard flowers to the frame to add dimension and scattered a few enamel dots all over the page.
For my last page, I decided to include a mixed media page using the chipboard page from the album. I used the waves stencil with polishing plaster to create the waves and waited for the mixed media to dry before embellishing the page with foam stickers, rub-ons, and gems.
I hope you found this album inspiring and hopefully, I gave you few fun ideas to use in your summer album! Thank you so much for visiting today!
