A Mini-Album!

Hello, Memory Bound Friends!
When the new WeR 4x4 mini albums arrived at the store, my biggest decision was what color to or gray? I decided on gray, grabbed a couple of refills and started to scrap our spring break mini-vacation!
I must be honest, when I first started working on this album, I was frustrated. The 2x2 squares just seemed SO small!!

But, as soon as I got in my groove though, I LOVED working with this album and able to create the entire thing in just a couple days!  

I used several Bella Blvd. 2x2 insta-squares. I wanted the book to be bright and colorful and these squares worked perfectly.  I also used a lot of the Simple Stories DIY stickers.

I printed off the pictures in square format, which worked out perfect for the 4x4 pages.

I will definitely be making another 4x4 album!

In my next album I will "enlist" a little help from some of these new Snap products such as these Photo Flip Pockets.
The pockets come in 4x3, 4x4 and 4x6.  I picked up the Variety Pack so I got a few of each pocket size. I can't wait to try these out and add a few more photos to my next album in a creative manner!

Another product that will be a must are these wonderful photo crops.  The heavy plastic pieces come in four sizes: 4x6, 4x4, 3x4, 3x3 and 2x2.

As the ad says, all you need to do is put the overlay on your photo and crop! This will be a great help especially with the smaller sized pictures, such as the 2x2!

Simple Stories Snap has also released amazing new sets of insta-squares. I picked up the "Dog" pieces and plan on making a fun 4x4 mini-album dedicated to our Golden Retriever, Moose!

This is Moose!

And these are the "dog" insta-squares!
(Don't worry, they come in "Cat" theme too!)
Each theme of insta-squares contain die cuts, 4x4, 3x3 and 2x2 squares. Perfect for a mini-album!
