Simple Stories Enchanted Snap Cards by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone
This week I thought I would try something different and create some Project Life layouts using the Simple Stories Enchanted Snap cards. I love the idea of using Project Life particularly for holidays when we take lots of photos but they may not all be layout material. 
In my case, I took a few photos of the kids visiting the princesses in Disneyland a few years ago and most remain unscrapped. The solution, PL pages.
 I decided on a system for the pages - a title card, photos, a journaling card and then the filler cards all using the same page design. The Enchanted Snap Cards were just perfect for the 3 characters I have PL'ed today: Belle, Sleeping Beauty & Tinkerbell as there was the perfect filler card for each of these, in co-ordinating princess/fairy dress colours! Add a few embellishments from the ample range in this collection and these can come together pretty quickly.
Beautiful Belle
I've gone with a predominantly yellow theme here to match Belle's gown, with red to match the kids outfits and pops of black & white. The Enchanted Snap cards make it easy to match it all up, and on this spread I have mixed and matched with some Say Cheese embellishments to add in the red and black.
A close-up of my journaling card. I have printed straight onto the snap card, then added some photo stickers, washi tape and the Say Cheese bits & pieces.
The perfect filler card - Tale as Old as Time. I've added the tea-cup from the Say Cheese Bits & Pieces pack and on the 3 x 4 photo some little word stickers by MME.

Princess Aurora & Prince Phillip
Pretty pinks for this page and white to soften the black and red in the photos up.
My journaling card for this page, I have once again printed straight onto the card and added a simple crown from the Enchanted Wood Veneer pack. I've added a few other veneers to some of the other cards and photos to tie it all together.
I love the Simple Stories Photo Stickers, they are so easy to use and just a nice touch to a photo without the need to over-embellish.
Believe Magic
A little bit of a mix of colours for this one, not as many green cards in the pack, but these multi coloured ones are just fabulous for adding in and I thought very suited to Tinkerbell!
Some close-ups of my smaller cards. The perfect filler and I've just used a heart from the bits and pieces pack to tie them together.

I've used a smaller card for journaling on this spread, I've printed onto some white card then gone over the edges with a gelato to blend my greens together. Simple Stories latest brads are sticky so no need to poke holes in things - brilliant idea!

 Thanks for stopping by, I hope you've enjoyed seeing some pocket pages for something different. I've enjoyed doing them.
Till next week
