Photo Freedom

When I first got into paper crafting, I was a scrapbooker.  All I did was make scrapbook pages.  The more involved in the hobby I got, I started making cards also.  Once I started making cards, I didn’t stop.  They’re easy, they’re quick, and you need to have pictures developed to make them.  As my pictures sat and sat in my computer dying to get out, I realized I needed to start scrapbooking again.  I was nervous and afraid I wouldn’t remember how to make a scrapbook page and my pictures would be stuck in the computer forever.

Then I discovered project life or pocket scrapbooking.  It was exactly what I needed- a quick and easy way to get my pictures into an album.  There are several brands of products you can use in pocket scrapbooking.  For this project I am focusing on Echo Park’s version called Photo Freedom. 

Photo Freedom comes as a kit.  The kit contains photo sleeves in different designs, patterned paper that you can cut into 3x4 and 4x6 squares, and a sticker sheet.  Cutters Creek does not have Photo Freedom listed in the store currently, but Kim can order it for you.  The kit I used is called Today’s Story and the colors are great.

This design of page protector has spaces for 4 x 6 items and 4 3x4 items.  You can use as many photos or fillers as you want.  You can also cut your photos smaller and use them in in the 3x5 slots, the possibilities are endless.  Each of the page elements is double sided giving you double the options. 

Here is a picture of what one of the pages looks like from the back with nothing additional added to it.

All I really need for this page is to add 2 more photos and it’s done.  So quick and easy and not stressful at all.  If you would like to give pocket scrapbooking a try, let Kim know so she can order you some supplies and you can get started.
