Snapshots of a Good Life

Snapshots of a Good Life

Order a kit: $40.00 (add $6.00 shipping within the US and Canada and $15.00 shipping on International orders).

Class description: “Snapshot” style photos make up the majority of the photos we take and although we are all striving to take better quality photos, it is sometimes those “snapshot” style photos that capture our memories the best. So how do you scrapbook with photos that are “less than perfect”?

Complete: one 5x7 chipboard album (the front cover of the album is a frame and the back cover of the album is a easel), with scalloped pages, transparent pages and pages made from your own photos.

Almost all of the supplies in the kit are cream & black, so you can completely customize the color of your album with the acrylic paint that you use. So you can pick colors to match your living room, your scrapbook room, your daughters room, your best friend's house, etc. Or you could choose pink or blue for a baby shower gift, or your Mom's favorite color for a birthday gift...you get the idea.

Each kit contains (over $40.00 in retail product):
- 1 three page color handout
- 1 step-by-step instructional CD (with written/visual instructions and sample layouts/photos)
- 1 Bare Elements Sophia frame
- 1 sheet Bare Elements plain white chipboard
- 1 Anthology Filagree transparency
- 1 Narratives Remember When transparency
- 1 Narratives Antique Memories transparency
- 1 sheet Narratives Cream Scroll paper
- 4 sheets Narratives Cream Line paper
- 1 sheet Narratives Cream Quote stickers
- 1 sheet Narratives Cream Tab Alphabet stickers
- 1 sheet Narratives Antique Cream alphabet
- 28 page Narratives Honeydew rub-on swatchbook
- 2 silver metal photo corners
- 2 silver metal binding rings

I printed up all of my photos with a white border around them from www.scrapbookpictures.com. If you haven’t tried them yet – you’ll love them (and, if you haven’t tried them before, you can use the following code to get 12 free prints: QAZ937.
