Peace. Love. Joy! by Marsha Farris
Hey, Simple Stories friends! Marsha here, and I'm excited to share a SN@P binder I created using the beautiful Holly Days collection! I love making holiday projects and was so happy to use this fun collection to create a mini album to document my December memories.
I used a Red 6x8 SN@P binder for my project today. To decorate the cover, I chose two patterned papers from the collection and used them to cover the chipboard portion of the album cover. I added a large foam sticker to serve as the title and used a variety of die-cut bits and pieces, chipboard stickers, and cardstock stickers to further embellish the cover. I also added a tag from the Tags patterned paper and black and white bakers twine. 

For the first page of the album, I included a vellum page and layered a die-cut patterned paper circle and cardstock stickers onto it. I love the look of vellum layered over patterned paper!
Using trimmed paper from the 6x8 paper pad, I created a pocket and layered it over another patterned paper from the collection kit. I like including tags in my albums and created two of them to tuck inside the pocket for additional photos or journaling.
This collection includes some beautiful chipboard frames, so I used one on the next page. I added a tag below the frame and embellished it with stamping using the clear stamp set and black ink. I also added a cute die-cut bits and pieces Christmas tree.
I enjoy creating journal cards for my albums using patterned paper and white cardstock. Chipboard stickers and cardstock stickers were perfect for embellishing the pocket cards. I also included several cut apart journal cards and a tag from the Tags paper for the pocket page layouts.
There is just something about the Insta-Pocket Pages with 2x2 inch pockets that I love! I used a variety of embellishments and trimmed patterned papers from the collection to fill each pocket. So fun!
For the final page of the album, I created a pocket using trimmed patterned paper. I added foam, cardstock, and chipboard stickers to the pocket and tucked a few tags inside for including additional photos and journaling. 

This is such a fun holiday album created using the beautiful Holly Days collection. Thanks so much for stopping by today! I will see you again soon with more inspiration!
