And back to Echo Park Paper
Now for a little holiday fun - Have you tried the Echo Park Photo Freedom collections? I had never done the divided pages and after playing with them recently, I found out that it's really alot of fun to try another format! I will be sharing some more of my pages soon, but right now I have to show you this page using the Dear Santa collection (Click here to see the collection because it fun stuff). After seeing some of my Photo Freedom layouts, my husband suggested trying a traditional type layout just for fun and this is what I came up with. Since this collection has Noel all over it, I had to do a Noel page :) and of course I couldn't keep things contained in their own pockets so my snowflakes and things are spanning out to adjacent pockets. Just a really fun thing to try.
Another thing I tried was making my own covered buttons using the papers. I used the Dritz buttons that are designed to be fabric covered and I cut a circle from the papers and a circle from the clear packaging of the collection and followed the directions for the buttons. It makes a cool shiny covered button - kind of like homemade flair. Here are some close ups
