Sunny Days Are Ahead

Love singing in the rain or splashing in puddles?  
Make a cute mini album that captures all of those rainy spring memories 
with the “Sunny Days Ahead” Collection by
ECHO PARK PAPER

 
I started with a tabbed chipboard album that I had on hand and used
 Carta Bella’s Kraft Paper for the base pages.  I cut smaller mats from various
 “Sunny Days Ahead” papers and machine stitched them in place 
before adhering to the chipboard.

On the front cover I used a round punch and a piece from the 6X6 paper pad to make the journal card’s sun 3-D; just adhere with foam adhesive and you have a really fun look.



 If you’re giving your album as a gift, print off a few related photos (I found mine 
on the internet by searching for “vintage rain photos”) and add them to the
 pages with repositionable adhesive.  This is a good way to show 
placement ideas to the recipient.




Next, the “Spring” sentiment was die-cut from the  “Spring Flowers Die”
I wanted the letters to follow the contour of the sun shape, so I snipped the letters
 apart and then affixed them to the image.


 
The small number stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet are the perfect
bullet points for the journal card…add a list of your favorite spring activities.



 Again, I used a round die to change the shape of the “sunny days ahead” journal card, 
which made it a better fit for the small page.


 Dress up the stickers with dimension by adding enamel dots and brads!

Here is a list of supplies that I used:
 SDA82002 Sun Ahead
SDA82003 Rain Boots
SDA82004 Umbrellas
SDA82005 Clouds
SDA82006 Rainbow Stripe
SDA82014 Sticker Sheet
SDA82023 6x6 Paper Pad
SDA82030 Spring Flowers Die
JJG81020 Assorted Brads
AG74020 Anything Goes Brad Set
JJG81028 Enamel Dots
BJGT79028 Enamel Dots

Have a wonderful week!

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV.

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
