Photo Freedom

Hello fellow crafters,

Today I have a project to share with you that uses 7 photographs across 2 pages and has one more event scrapbooked from my ever growing list!  With the new Echo Park Photo Freedom range, it's entirely possible to scrapbook a huge batch of photographs in just one night - and the divided page protectors are included!

Photo Freedom Volume 1 Collection Kit

This collection features Six 12” x 12” Double-Sided Patterned Papers, One 12” x 12” Element Sticker Sheet, Five Photo Sleeves (12” x 12”, 4” x 6” Horizontal, 4” x 6” Vertical, 4” x 6”/ 3” x 4” /6 x 12") for just 11.99! 

The cut apart sheets feature beautiful cards that you can slide straight in to your protectors as ready made embellishment, or use as titles on your projects.  They're incredibly versatile.

Here is my double-page spread:

The left hand side had photographs that I felt needed no embellishing and the 4x6 sized blank journaling cards were  perfect to give my children so that they could jot down their memories from their own perspective.

The sticker embellishment sheet features lots of icons that work as standalone embellishments when layered with scraps of paper and washi tape - saving a lot of money and ensuring you always have the perfect colour-match.

Having my daughters handwriting, telling the story from her eyes, makes the page even more sentimental and features the real story.

 If you struggle for hours with trying to find the perfect colour combination, if you have photographs lying in dusty old boxes or waiting on your computer, if you would like to scrapbook but don't know where to begin, or if you just like clean, well designed, quality products - then pop in to Clare Curd Crafts and pick up an Echo Park Photo Freedom pack today and liberate those photographs!

Also featured in this project, were the co-ordinating papers:

Photo Freedom Volume 1 Designer Solids

Take the guess work and hours of indecision out of memory keeping.  Once you try it, you'll be hooked!

Gorgeous pages Mel - I love how you have let Emily tell the story of the day, and I love how you take lots of pictures of the same event, it must help to remember every single detail of the day.
The scrapbook page is gorgeous too - I love how you've made an arrow shape from the washi tape to match the die-cuts, and I always love how you mix styles of alphabet stickers - those glitter ones are fab!
