I've ordered the Snap stuff to do PL next year. I always buy a Becky Higgins Kit, but the Snap colour & design appeals to me.
Anyone have any pages they've done using Snap?

I will be using this collection along with their binder starting January to document my daughters cheer competition season. Love this stuff!
How much did you buy for the whole year? Or are you just spreading it out and pulling from your stash?
|Posted: 11/25/2012 5:12:27 AM|I've been thinking about using Snap for PL too. I'm a little worried about the size of the binder. Are you going to do a 2 page spread for every week and how many binders do you think you'll use for the year?
I LOVE the bright colors of this line and the polka dots.

I am planning to use Sn@P for Project Life this year. I was actually thinking of doing one page only for each week, although the two facing pages would also work well. I have done Project Life/photo a day for the last three years, and as much as I love going back through the albums, it is a lot. I don't see us with major projects or vacations or life changes this year which we have had in the last three that made each day a bit more interesting! I am excited to try this new format and just do a summary of the week or the highlight of the week.

I used this line mixed with some others for my latest PL class here at 2peas - I can't link from my phone but it's the 2012 : Captured class for November under free classes.

I will be using the collection throughout my PL 2013. I am going to mix it in with other stuff I pull from my stash to use. I won't be using the binder though, I think it will be too small for my needs.

I've already hoarded some of that stuff for PL for next year. Love the vibrant colors and designs.

I bought couple of Snap binders and I like the smaller size and the page protectors. I am using one to do a fall album right now. The only thing for me was that I turned out not to like the Snap cards and so forth -- I know what appeals to a lot of people is the bright colors, but for me, they were too bright when put on a layout. I am cutting my own cards.

I'm preparing to use the Snap collections for my projects similar to project life. I picked the supplies up on two peas BF specials.

I'm thinking of trying a snap album for PL next year. I love the colors!!
For the ladies who have already bought the supplies, how did you figure out what you needed? How many binders do you think you will end up using if you do a two page per week spread?

Sorry to take so long to get back - real life is really messing with my pea time this week!
I bought three 3x4 sayings packs etc, and then three 4x6 packs, and the sticker sheets & one of the $20 packs of papers/stickers/can cut up cards. I'm planning to mix it up with other stuff - eg I bought some 3x4 BH cardstock packs.
Really looking forward to what we can do with it - I am a huge Becky devotee and this is the first time I haven't bought one of her kits, but I love the SS colours. BH's designs just aren't as exciting, it seems. Promise I will post. In January we are having a short vacation and I have already set up the "travel" cards for it.
So envy those of you near an Archiver's where these things can be bought easily!

And PS - yes, I am planning a spread for every week, just like I've done for Project Life. But I'm thinking this year about just seven photos a week rather than one a day - some of my days are really not photo-worthy!

I love it now that I've switched to Sn@p! for my PL. I find that I actually get my pages done. When life get busy, I know I can whip out a small page or insert a photo and a couple of small journaling cards. I also love doing full-page mini layouts with the full-page sleeves. Another perk? It's so small and easy to travel with! I can easily pack a little PL kit to take with me when I travel to feed my scrapbooking bug.
My December Daily uses the Sn@p! album this year and it's such fun to work with.

|Posted: 12/16/2012 1:55:02 PM|Thanks everyone! I have been going back & forth about what to do for 2013. I like the idea of the smaller book just because I do not have a 12x12 shelf friendly bookshelf so many times they are put up and out of sight.
I think I am going to get 2 albums to start and just document what ever happens and some weeks maybe 2 pages & others less or more
I saw on other blogs that people are cutting down the 12 x12 page protectors to fit the smaller albums. Which is great as I have plenty and do not want to waste anything.
