Shine Bright! by Becki Adams

Hello Simple Stories friends, Becki here, to share a 6x8 album with you that I created with the Full Bloom collection. When this collection landed on my doorstep, I knew I wanted to create a 6x8 Sn@p album with all of these gorgeous products. I love this collection!! The title of this album is “just smile.” I filled it with photos and stories that make me smile.



All of the pages in this album are out of the pocket, meaning that there aren’t any page protectors in this album. I wanted this album to be full of interactive elements and have lots of dimension. I even added a pocket with a tag that has photos and journaling on the inside cover. 



Not all of the pages in this album are 6x8. In fact, most of them aren’t. I created pages of all different shapes and sizes! This cute little teal page is just big enough to fit between the rings. 


This page is a full 12” wide. I scored it at the 8” mark to create a large flap. On the inside of the flap, I created a pocket for additional photos and journaling. 



My favorite feature on this spread is the tab that I created using two decorative brads. I adhered them back-to-back on the edge of the page. 



The photo on the left page deserved the bold red patterned paper and the title “happy” That cute photo is priceless!!



I used some Robin's Egg color vibe cardstock to create four flaps for 2x2 photos and journaling. The 2x2 cut aparts were the perfect embellishments to go on top of these fun flaps. 


The last page in this album is a bold yellow patterned paper with two of my favorite photos of my little man. On the back cover, I added the date using number stickers from the Full Bloom sticker book. 



There are SO many interactive elements in this album. If you’d like to see all the little details, I created a video to show all the interactive elements. You can watch the video HERE



Make sure you order the Full Bloom collection or pick it up at your local scrapbook store. Happy Crafting, my friends!
