Echo Park Happy Go Lucky – Photo Freedom Pages

Whoa. It’s been awhile, huh?

I’ve been busy with life so I haven’t been crafting much at all. But I am back at it now and will have a couple blog posts this week.. starting with this one!

I used the Echo Park Happy Go Lucky Photo Freedom kit for these two pages. I kept this clean and simple and just focused on the pictures. I mean, the whole concept with this style of ‘scrapbooking’ is to be quick and easy, right?… So here’s some quick and easy for ya!

We had a nice little day taking some photos of her in the dress I made.. and as you see, I had to make her American Girl doll one as well.

The butterfly wings pop up for some dimension. Really cute cuts.. I found them in the Silhouette store.

 

Here’s page #2. My favorite part is how I split the balloons sticker betwen two pockets.

And yes.. I will admit she looks kinda scary in the bottom right photo, lol.. But that was her.. gummy wide grin, lol. Grimlin style.

This page has hidden journaliing. I was done with the page and was like, “Crap! I didn’t add any journaling..” lol. So ‘hidden’ worked well for this.

Isn’ this PF theme beautiful though? I LOVE it. I think it’s my favorite PF theme so far.

 

And while you’re here I thought I’d share what’s coming to me VERY soon.. which means you’ll soon be able to get the, too.. Look at this yumminess.

There’s HAPPY CAMPER. I have project ideas spewing outta my brain with this one.. CAN’T WAIT!

There’s also the FANTASTIC HERE & NOW. OMG, peeps.. this is GORGEOUS!!! Can not WAIT to work with this. I am gonna use the crazy outta this!

The colors.. I mean REALLY.

Anyhow, I am looking forward to my DT box (when aren’t I?) and creating some projects to inspire you all (hopefully?..). Which of these two if YOUR favorite?

 

Alrighty, friends.. off ya go. See you again soon.. Sorry to be MIA for a bit. I have a few more goodies to share so check back!

Friday Favorites

Hey all! Welcome to my first Friday Favorites post! This will be a bi-weekly post every Friday showing you some of my current favorites! I even made a cute frame/graphic for it! Gold star sticker for me and my snazzy-ness.

Let’s see what I picked out! (totally typed ‘licked out’ at first, lol.)

 

  • 1). Noteworthy 12X12 Dear Lizzy Lucky Charm Paper - WHY? Hello awesome colors, prints, etc. I think this is just a gorgeous piece of paper! The entire collection is fantastic, but this pattern really stands out to me!
  • 2). Road Trip Icons – Chic Tags WHY? The travel theme is fantastic, colors are great.. love the muted tones! Graphics are super cute! Great for cards, scrapbooking and ‘project Life’ type work!
  • 3). Charcoal Sketchbook Snippets Printed Chipboard Thickers WHY? I just like the ‘sketchy’ look of these. Think they would go well with a LOT of lines! I picked up three packs myself! One to use, one to hoard, and one to lose in my mess of a craft room.
  • 4). Doodlebug Ditto Dots Washi Tape WHY? Color, color, and more COLOR! Throw some dots in the mix and it can’t get much better. Unless it came with coffee… and chocolate… and a cute persian kitten.
  • 5). Fiskars Stamp Press WHY? I recently discovered this and I am not sure how I stamped without one before… oh, that’s right. I did stamp just fine.. just looked like a toddler did it.. This helps with using multiple cling stamps at once and really helps me get  nice even pressure. You need this if you stamp!
  • 6). EP Happy Go lucky WHY? The color palette alone is drop dead gorgeous! And the element stickers are rockin’. Great for spring! *high five* (Look for an upcoming DT project from me with this collection!)

 

So, how’s that for eye-candy?… Do you like the idea of the ‘Friday Favorites’ post?… I do. What are YOUR favorite things out right now? Link ‘em up.. I might miss something awesome out there..

Have a great weekend!

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!

 

You can see all the current and upcoming Echo Park Photo Freedom kits HERE. For a little how to on one of my pages (4×6 horizontal) you can get the free PDF download RIGHT HERE.
