EP’s Photo Freedom ‘Dear, Santa’ kit!

Hey, hey! Are you all staying warm? I am sitting here with some coffee and my little space heater TRYING to stay warm. We got some snow last night and while I just LOVE the snow, I hate being cold when I can’t cuddle up by a fire or in my warm cozy bed. But, I have a few things to share and thought I better get to blogging! So.. here I am. Freezing just for you guys.

So, I am sure you’ve all seen me mention a billion times that I am not a ‘scrapbooker’. I am not exactly sure WHY I don’t scrapbook. I have three beautiful monsters and a fantastic camera that I know how to use properly.. We do plenty of fun stuff to make memories of.. but yet, I leave folders and folders of photos on my computer and don’t print them. I have TONS of paper.. I just don’t ‘get it’. I have tried several times to create a layout and 1 ou of 5 times ends up in something worth sharing. I see all these AMAZING scrapbookers who’s style I love and I love what THEY do. But when it comes to my pages.. I don’t want tons of journaling.. ink splatters.. giant flowers, etc. I just want it ‘clean’. Then I stare at it forever saying to myself, “Is it done?.. It doesn’t look done.. I am pretty sure I am sitting on my cat’s tail right now…” Poor kitty. Really though. I just need to find a ‘flow’ and a style for ME and have at it. But, until then.. I have Echo Park’s PHOTO FREEDOM!

I am FREEEEEEE… That’s how I felt when I started playing with the Dear, Santa kit. I was SO stressed at first. I even contemplated asking our DT coordinator to be skipped for this DT assignment. Nope.. I sucked it up and found some cute photos to print. I laid them all out on the table with my Dear, Santa kit, took a deep breath, and jumped in!….. And I survived! Really, people. If you’re like me and not much of a scrapbooker THIS is for you. No joke. I think my issue is trying to ‘fill up’ that big ‘ol 12×12 page (I know you can do smaller pages, but I like the look of the larger pages). With the Photo Freedom kits that ‘scary big page’ issue is broken up into this little ‘you can handle this’ sections. Once I stopped looking at it as a big scary 12×12 sheet I had to fill up, it all came together.. a little section at a time.

I did choose to keep my pages simple and clean and focus on the pretty pictures. I absolutely HATE my writing (AKA: chicken-scratch) so I avoid journaling (Santa needs to being mama a typewriter!). I also wanted to show the collection nicely, so I didn’t mix in much from other companies as far as stamps, alphas, and embellishments go.

So, here they are! My five Photo Freedom Dear, Santa pages! YAY!

 

My first page focuses on Christmas morning. (Gah! Seeing this makes me so excited for Christmas!! 12 days, peeps.. TWELEVE DAYS!!!!)

I love these die-cut numbers from Lori Whitlock! They were the perfect little added touch to my page.

 

The second page shows my youngest daughter getting her most wanted gift, a Nintendo DSi XL. She was THRILLED! Again, I added in some die-cuts and then a bit of some American Crafts white glittery alphas.

 

This page is all about gingerbread fun! I printed a 6×8 photo to split, which I think was a great idea! It’s such a yummy photo and just needed to be BIGGER! For the ‘JOY” card, I used my craft knife to cut out the middle of the circle to use as a frame. CUTE!

 

This one is my favorite, I think! I just love the aqua blue and teal! This page shows when our elf ‘Snowflake’ came and brought some Polar Express fun!

I printed the main photo onto textured Carta Bella cardstock.. came out GREAT! It’s just a tad small for this section of the page protector, but it doesn’t look bad. As you can see I die-cut some vellum snowflakes, added some stamping, etc. I really just love this little section!

 

This one.. to be honest.. is kinda ‘eh’ for me. For one.. it’s a 12×12 full page (you know.. the scary 12×12 pages I mentioned earlier? lol). I just added a photo of one of my trees, some ‘negative’ snowflakes with vellum behind them, and some rub-ons. Nothing crazy exciting.

 

What do ya think? I was pretty excited to share this with you all! The whole ‘pocket’ scrapbooking is so crazy popular right now! So what about you?.. If you’re a scrapbooker have you given this ‘style’ a try? And if you’re like me and don’t really scrapbook, have you thought about giving this Photo Freedom stuff a go? It really does make things so much easier!

    I’ve been trying my hand at scrapbooking and let me tell you, it does not come to me as easy as card making! That being said I think you did a fantastic job on your pages!
