Photo Freedom - Smash Book Style!

Hello crafters!

It's no secret that i'm in love with Echo Parks Incredible Photo Freedom collection:

Photo Freedom Volume 1 Collection Kit

At http://ClareCurdCrafts.Co.Uk we're having a huge sale with 10% off, FREE delivery and a FREE gift with first orders!  That means you can get this set for just £10.79 delivered to your door!

I've created many pocket-page spreads and scrapbook pages with this collection, but today, i'm going to show you how the 3x4 cards make a perfect mini flip-book inside your Smash books to give you more room per page for photographs and journaling - Cool, huh? :)

  1.  Take a piece of cardstock and cut 5 pieces measuring 4 inches wide x 4.5 inches tall. 
  2. Score each one 0.5inches from the left.
  3. Bend at the score and adhere your first piece at the left hand side of your page
  4. Adhere your second piece on your Smash book page next to the first pieces 'flap'.  This will stagger each piece.
  5. Keep going until you have your required number of pages, ready to add patterned papers and 3x4 cards to!
 I used the Photo Freedom Volume 1 Patterned Paper pack to decorate the pages. It's a perfect match to the kit and means I don't have to worry about things clashing!

The stickers on the sticker element sheet in the Echo Park Photo Freedom Collection pack feature prominently throughout the page and made perfect ready to go, matching embellishments!  The letter stickers are a fantastic and easy font..

 My Smash washi tape never grows old and is the perfect bit of journaling in 'neat writing' for my pages!

Here I've used the Smash Red and Blue Stickies, but cut around them to make arrows embellishments!  The Smash pads feature pages perfectly sized for these flaps and have the perfect journaling prompts!

 Here is a page I left blank to add next years photograph to :) 

See how easy it is to add interaction and fun to your Smash books?  This Smash Book was a page from the Eco Green, one of my favourites!
