Echo Park Photo Freedom Tutorial by Design Team Member Elizabeth Wiederspohn

Hi, my name is Elizabeth Wiederspohn and I am very excited to design for Craft Warehouse! Today I get to share a new passion of mine with you-pocket scrapbooking.  Many people know it as Project Life, Project 12 , Photo Freedom, Snap, or many other types of page protector types of scrapbooking out there.  Crafters love this method of scrapbooking for the simplicity of telling their stories.  Not just a page of one event but of many different everyday moments and of course the special events as well.  This creates, in one simple place, the story of your life.  In one two page spread you can scrapbook seven to 15 different stories and it is so easy to put together.

Over the last few months I have collected many types of pocket page protectors.  Each have a different layout of how you can arrange photos on the page and embellishments.  I am hooked.  I have created a Disney Album using this method as well as a December Daily Album using this method.  There are no limits to what you can do with this type of scrapbooking.  Now add all the wonderful companies that are now selling specialty kits and papers to fit these pocket page protectors and we have magic.

Today I am working with the Echo Park: Volume One Photo Freedom papers.  They are adorable.  I love all the sayings and the bold colors.  I sat down one evening and cut out all the cards while watching a TV show and I was amazed at how much was in a kit.

Along with the cards they also include five different types of page protectors.   It's everything you need to get started and I have have laid it out for you in my video in four easy steps.

Echo Park-Volume One Photo Freedom Pack

To show you how to put together a Photo Freedom page, in four easy steps, I made a quick video.  Be prepared to move fast.  There was a lot of information to include.   Enjoy and I hope you have fun.
