An Album for a Coach: Scrapbooking with Amanda

Amanda, who is the queen of putting together beautiful albums, and just happens to be on my creative team, put together this album for her son's soccer coach.


I love how she used simple blocking, but then also added some pages in with some elements and papers. Not pictured are also pages of each team member on a single page (like her son's picture above).

It's an 8x8 hardback Snapfish Album with a custom cover.
It took her about eight hours total to finish it. Here's what she said about creating the album:

I made myself a list of 20 pages and picked templates that I thought work. Then I just put everything in place. There is not much journaling. Just a couple of quotes. So that made it go even faster! I just used the one kit for papers and elements. That cuts down on time, too, because I spend much less time looking for elements that might work. This one was really quick to make!

Here's how she laid out her album if you are interested:

1. title 2. team 3. thunder! 4. boy 5. boy 6. boy 7. boy 8. boy 9. boy 10. boy 11. boy 12. game photos-action 13. game photos-action 14. game photos-huddle 15. practice photos-first practice 16. practice photos- 17. practice photos 18. practice photos 19. good game 20. end paper

Isn't this a beautiful album? Nice and simple, but also personalized. I bet the coach will treasure it.

Here are a list of items she used:
