I feel like I've lost my mind. I want the Sn@p Life collection..I believe. It's all bright and colorful? I just recently saw it here, but my LSS is telling me it's old..so she doesn't have anymore of it, and can't order it..and most is sold out here. Is it that old?? Is Sn@p a collection of Simple stories? Or is Life the collection?

I bought the Snap Collection by Simple Stories on ebay. It is a big collection. It has 12x12 sheets of paper, cute journaling cards, cut out cards, adorable stickers, and they are all about life. The collection is really cute! Great for project life too. This collection is very colorful! It is hard to decide what side of the paper you want to use. Buy it, you will not be disappointed! Look on ebay like I did. Good prices too

I do believe it is old as my dtr. bought it awhile ago to work on her pics. It is a great collection and if you like it I would buy it when and where you can find it

I think I should have worded it better. So Sn@p is a brand like..Basic Grey. and Life is a collection, like the lime rickey collection of BG? That's where I'm confused. And the Life collection must be old...but new to me.

Its a collection/brand line by simple stories. Im not sure if it was 'life' but the last line that came out, I bought bits and pieces of it in sep/October? and don't consider it 'old' old, but I suppose as far as retailers go it probably would be, especially if that retailer is concentrating on newer lines. There is more coming out, and it is a really nice line. Beautiful colors, it's worth getting.

I didn't buy mine for project life, I'll be using it in my regular scrapping when I do actually get to using it.

"Old" is so quick around the scrap-world...it was released at summer CHA 2012 I believe, and came into stores around September? Wow, it's 7 months OLD!

Yeah, no kidding. I've learned in this hobby if you like something, you better buy it immediately, because lines don't stick around.

I think I should have worded it better. So Sn@p is a brand like..Basic Grey. and Life is a collection, like the lime rickey collection of BG? That's where I'm confused. And the Life collection must be old...but new to me.


Simple Stories is the brand (like Basic Grey) and Sn@p! is the line (like Lime Rickey). It's a very extensive line though, and just had a 'second edition' come out. I think what you're talking about is the 'first edition' that you saw here.

I did a blog entry that puts all of the 'first edition' products in one place if you're interested - it's here. It includes the 6x8 Sn@p! albums, pages, and page protectors along with the 3 collections called Core, Life, and Color Vibe. I still have a ton in stock and retailers can still order it from Simple Stories. I think your LSS just doesn't want to order more.

Within the last week, the 'second edition' of Sn@p! came out. It's the same color way (which I love because I'm using Sn@p! for Project Life and now I can keep going with it longer). There are new embellishments - layered stickers, brads, chipboard, flair, etc. - 6x8 pages for the Sn@p! albums, and a 6x8 clear pouch. And stamps with dates, calendars, cameras, etc. that are perfect for PL or daily stuff. I haven't seen it listed elsewhere online but I have it on my site here. It just came out last week.

To further confuse things (lol), the Sn@p! line also includes 6x8 pages with each of the new lines - 24/7, Vintage Bliss, and Urban Traveler. Also 3x4 and 4x6 cards. And coming soon is a line of new Sn@p! vinyl/leather albums in 12x12 and 6x8.

Sn@p! is kind of confusing just because there's so much of it. The basic item is the 6x8 album and then everything kind of relates back to that. But you can definitely use all of it in your regular 12x12 scrapping and your cardmaking as well. Hope that helps!

There are craft stores which are now starting to carry the original Snap line. Don't know if the other lines will make their way there or not... I personally am hoarding a lot of this line to future use!

Ok - maybe I can help clear this up... I'm on the DT for Simple Stories, so hopefully I can make this clear as mud LOL

Sn@p is actually a brand from Simple Stories, a product manufacturer - It's more analogous to what Pebbles and Crate are to American Crafts. There will be continued expansion of the Sn@p brand. It's more than just a "line" like Lime Ricky or Urban Traveler... it's part of its own "system" of scrapping, especially for use with the 6x8 Sn@p albums.

Sn@p, the original collection has NOT been discontinued! It sold out, and was on order for more product to come in, which it just has. So, if a retailer chose to reorder, it should be on shelves soon...

In addition, at CHA-W this past winter, additional Sn@p products were released and should begin shipping within the next week to two weeks. So, perhaps your LSS owner didn't go to the show and doesn't realize that this brand is H.O.T. and continuing on with expansion to it. Wait til you see!

Let me know if you have more questions!! I'll try to answer as best I can.

Hi Natalie! The ribbon packs and the sets of American Crafts cardstock are made to match each line, and are Memory Works exclusives. I get at least 2 packs of the AC cardstocks for each line ... makes it so easy if you like to use cardstock as the base of your layouts, or mat photos. The ribbons are adorable.

THANK YOU Erika & Ally!! That cleared it up much better. I've been out of the scrapping world for over a year...I had a baby and he was pretty sick so I was out of it..and I just discovered this line from someone talking about it here on the board. I asked my LSS if she had any, because I love the idea of doing the binders and she said:

The Inspiration Station: We do! We have some of the first release that is quite old now and the 3 new lines are due in at the beginning of next week.
20 hours ago · Like

which confused me. I thought Life was just a "collection"..I didn't realize it was so big and so many different collections.

Good Lord, I don't even know where to begin ordering?! Can I just chose a $500 option of "Everything in the collection" ?!?!

Erika--I just sent you a pmail, but I don't know if it went through because it seemed to be holding up. Can you let me know if you don't get it?

I don't know if you saw this:

Nancy Damiano Uses Snap for Disney

These products are so fun, and bright, and easy and quick. After watching Nancy's video, I decided that's how I'm going to do my Disney album. I'm just waiting for them to come out with their 12x12 albums.

I don't usually do separate albums, but want to do Disney this way, and then I'm using one of their 6x8 albums for a big outside house project from last year.

I didn't get it although there is another PM in there from today so mine seems to be working. You can PM me at the other board we're on, or e-mail me: scrapbookobsession(at)gmail(dot)com. Look forward to hearing from you!

You're welcome, Lisa The ribbons we've always had to match each Simple Stories line but the brads, flair, layered stickers, and chipboard are all new to the SS family. I just ordered many for myself from each of the new lines. Tracking says it will be here tomorrow. I'll force myself not to loiter at the post office, lol.
