Many of you read my post on this blog about two months ago in which I detailed my process for organizing photos and making time for scrapbooking even when I am busy. I encouraged YOU, dear reader, to take the first step to getting your photos pulled together and in a place (physically) so you can share them with others.
With that re-cap in mind, I offer the VERY simple photo projects I completed for my recent Paper Pals Design Team assignment.
Stacy Julian (of Big Picture classes and formerly of Simple Scrapbooks) inspired the development of a line of great new products by Echo Park Paper Co. to help spread her Photo Freedom philosopy and help simplify the creative process. In my opinion, this new line and others like it that Karen carries in the store, will help you "get it done". You can view the entire line here:

I grabbed 5 photos from AWANA and 3 "goofy" photos of Harrison (trust me, there are many many more) and assembled these two pages in about 15 minutes. Not even kidding...you can do this!
The second project I created involved took about an hour. The “o’flip” album is ingenious in its simplicity – it is postbound, an acrylic cover with strips of adhesive in the binding that can then be attached to either 4×6 photos or 4×6 cardstock elements to create the album’s pages. The “o’flip” will be a new way to create 4×6 mini-books. It’s available in either 25 pages or 53 pages. It is perfect for photo a week albums with one page for a cover, brag books for Moms and Grandmoms, or any other small project!
One of my favorite groups of students of all time became the focus of this quick and easy project. I gathered the scraps and remnants of some old (yet still a favorite) KI Memories paper, and away I went!
Yes, it is December 11. You might think you don't have time to create a brag book for someone on your Christmas list. I double-dog dare you to do it anyway! You will be glad you did!
