So Rad Frame Album

Hello, everyone!  I shared a unique "So Rad" album yesterday at
 using an assortment of the collection's Chipboard Frames and other embellishments!

I started with the full pack of Chipboard Frames and the 6X6 paper pad from "So Rad". 
 I filled in each of the frame's windows with a piece of patterned paper that was 
glued into place.  A matching-sized frame was glued to the back of each.

 I used dies to cut small photos to fit the frames or just cut the photos down to size.

Stickers, enamel dots, brads and die-cuts were used to dress up the individual pages.

Two pockets from the SN@P! Card pack were also added to the album and a
 tag slipped inside for journaling.

 I left some of the smaller frames without any photos and simply embellished them
 with clear photo stickers and enamel dots.  You can also use the lined papers 
to create areas for journaling.

And don't forget those awesome Chipboard stickers and adhesive brads!

Once the pages were finished, I used the small punch of a crop-a-dile and punched
 holes into the tops of each frame.  Two strands of ball-chain were used to hold 
the pages together.  The perfect little keepsake!

6527 Bradz
6538 Chipboard Frames

All of the newer collections include these style of frames, so have fun
creating your own to fit your theme :)

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.
