Echo Park Design Team: December Blog Hop…

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop!

November-DT-Blog-Hop-Graphic

Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. I wanted to share a set of layouts I created using the brand new “Dear Santa” collection.  This fun collection is part of the Photo Freedom program recently introduced by Echo Park – you can check out the details HERE on their website.

When I was getting ready to start this project, I started looking in my photo albums and came across these photos that I'd never scrapped – from almost 10 years ago! This system is an awesome way to get those old(er) 4x6 prints OUT of the boxes and into our albums! :)

  33. Thanks for sharing your GREAT project and I am going to start scrapbooking the Photo Freedom way because I am a year and a half behind and I dont seem to want to take more photos so I feel that I am missing out on the last of the years that my children will be at home with us and I dont want that because I want them to remember the good times we had. TFS

  34. I so enjoyed looking at your new pages of Christmas past. The Dear Santa line seems to be a perfect match. I couldn't help but chuckle when I read the Dear Santa what I would like for Christmas journal card after seeing your wonderful pages of your family's Christmas. Especially since they show your children and their new little brother.

    What fun!

  72. What a fun and easy way to make layouts; they all have a different feel because of the photo sleeves but the paper ties them together perfectly!

  83. I need to get my photos into an album

  86. I think Photo Freedom is a brilliant idea. I don' t participate in project life but PF pages could easily be combined in albums with 12x12 layouts.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Love your color choices and your technique!!

    ReplyDelete
  88. I like scrapping 10 yr. old photos like you did. They bring back such fond memories!
