Thursday NSW Special & Jana's Puppy Albums

Hello, crafty friends!
It's hard to believe that it's already THURSDAY of National Scrapbooking Week! I guess it's appropriate that the week has gone quickly...because after all, our theme is FAST & FURIOUS SCRAPBOOKING! Sorry, couldn't resist that one! :)

To celebrate National Scrapbooking week, we are running great daily specials! 

Today's special is an awesome one:
(in-stock only)
It's the perfect time to stock up on stickers to add to your crafting projects. We've got many great new stickers in stock!


Each day this week we are featuring an album made by one of our staff members using pocket pages. Today's project is by Jana and showcases her adorable puppy, Elle. Actually, Jana filled TWO albums with Elle's photos and stories, since Elle is their first "child"! :)

Jana used the 6x8 SN@P binder for her project. These albums have kraft covers and can be customized as Jana did here.

Jana used a combination of full pages and several styles of pocket pages.

I could not tear myself away from Jana's wonderful albums! LOOK AT THAT FACE!

It's not a wonder that Elle has two whole albums (SO FAR!) devoted to her!
Another fun tip: Jana occasionally added embellishments to the OUTSIDE of the pocket! You can see this with the pink paw sticker in the photo below.

Jana added photos to the three heavy dividers which are included in the album. LOOK AT THESE BATH TIME PHOTOS!

Jana cut out the dog bone with our Accu Cut die cutting machine. Perfect accent for a puppy album!

Jana also added smaller "pages" without pockets. She simply punched holes in cardstock -- or in the photo itself -- and added to her album. This breaks up the album and gives it a fun, informal feel...perfect for a puppy! I love this idea!

As you can see, Jana made good use of both the 4x6 and 3x4 pre-made cards which are designed to fit the pockets. They are perfect to slip in when you are "short" a photo, need space for journaling, or want to mat a favorite picture.

Sometimes a story is in order....Oh, my goodness! I remember hearing about this incident!

And what baby album would be complete without a few nap time photos?

Jana also made pages for Elle's first birthday...

...and Elles' first Christmas! What a cutie!

I love this idea: She captured all of Elle's nicknames on one page!

Thanks to Jana for sharing her wonderful albums with us today! I'm inspired to make one (or ten!) for my kitties!

As you can see, pocket pages make scrapbooking super fast and fun! If you've never tried pocket pages, the 6x8 SN@P albums are a great way to start. Stop in to see samples of staff albums and let us help you plan your project!
