BIG Simple Stories GIVEAWAY - I Got Caught Up in a SN@P!

It is true! I finally got all caught up on my Life Documented Album. And let me tell you it was a SN@P with Simple Stories pocket pages, album and SN@P sets. YES this post will culminate in a BIG giveaway, so be sure to make it all the way to the end :)

First let me tell you, that my Life Documented album had fallen woefully behind. At the beginning of this weekend I was still in July!! So I had a lot of catching up to do! I got myself a brand new Teal Simple Stories Faux Leather 12 x 12 album:

And a set of Pocket Pages in various design layouts:

and a few SN@P sets as well as some other Simple Stories papers and embellishments and got to work.
I seriously LOVE this album. It is gorgeous. 

This album is constructed really well. The stitching and metal corners are such a nice touch.
 Here is the mess I made pulling everything out to get to work :)
 And here is how my new album looks now that it is nice and caught up!
I started by using the Family and Girl SN@P sets to work on a spread for August. You should know that in my version of Life Documented I dont always do one spread each week. I usually use my phone photos (since my camera photos generally end up in regular scrapbook pages) and the number of spreads I do really depends on how many photos I take that month. The variety of layouts in the pack of Pocket Pages made it really easy to work with 3x4, 4x4 and 4x6 photos.
 Here is more August on the left and the beginning of Septmember on the right. For this spread, I used the Girl SN@P set and some SN@P Studio papers and stickers too.
 I continued September with this 2 page spread that mainly used the Family SN@P set and a flair from SN@P.
 Here, the left page is the end of September, while the right 12 x 12 layout is the introduction to October. I used the Simple Stories Say Cheese collection for October's intro layout.
 Since I needed another 12 x 12 layout for the back of that right hand page to start this spread, I used another enlrarged photo and more Say Cheese and the right side I went back to another Pocket Page spread. I think it is fun to mix it up!
So there you have it! In a SN@P I am all caught up!

  5. Your pages are wonderful Rebecca!!! I just love how you made smaller collages in the 4x4 size pockets. That's a great way to include tons of photos. After being in a serious scrapping rut this year, I finally am getting back into it with pocket pages. I am woefully behind (like 2 years behind!!) but am looking forward to catching up slowly and getting my mojo back. Simple Stories makes such fun and functional products!!
