Hi Everyone,

Alice has been having fun creating snowman cards.  This adorable card has so many fun 3D details.  She used a swirl embossing folder for the snow drifts and highlighted each swirl with Stickles.  The penguin is hanging on to some twine and dangling from the peppermint lolly pops.

Photo Freedom: Happy Little Moments

Echo Park has just introduced  a very versatile collection called Photo Freedom.  A revolutionary new way to scrapbook, easily and affordably! Simply buy a photo freedom kit, add photos and complete 10 pages in minutes... this is great for beginners and highly relevant for long-time scrappers that are looking to get memories scrapped faster.

Or you can do as I did and simply create beautiful layouts.  The layout I created was about my teenage daughter's love for Young Life, a Christian youth group.  The soft, serene colors and catchy journaling spots  were perfect for the topic and made this layout a breeze to put together. The yellow-green and pale turquoise were not color combinations I have used before and I loved the results.  The 12x12 sticker elements added the extra embellishments and the alphabet stickers I used for the title in the journaling box.  I added a Dew Drop and a pearl flourish from my stash to finish off this sweet layout.

Photo Scraps carries the full line of Happy Little Moments and Dear Santa from the Photo Freedom collection.  The page protectors work with most scrapbook albums, such as We R Memory Keepers.

Halloween Project share from Pat Carmondy

Hi Everyone,

One of our creative customers, Pat Carmondy, was making a fun Halloween paper bag album for her nephew and got carried away in a great direction.   She didn't realize until she was done that she had crated a spider like album.  Her vision as she was creating was to use the paper bags as pockets to hide money and candy.

I adore how she has the skeleton holding the cash.

Who thinks this would be a fun class next year?
