Bringin' Back the Freaky!

Happy Friday! I hope that you are gearing up for the weekend, and, that you are going to be able to get some scrapping done this weekend.  Want some help?

FREAKY FAST FRIDAY!!! the rescue!
Here's the concept.  Sometimes, scrapbooking can be overwhelming...too many photographs, so many supplies, tools and techniques.  
Where do you begin?
May I suggest FREAKY FAST Formulas!
Starting NOW, we are bringing back a challenge that was run at The ScrapRoom a few years back.  Here's how it works.  Each month, we will introduce a basic formula to use to get a page done.   They will be simple instructions to choose a base paper to start your page along with instructions to cut pattern papers to complete a page. It's that easy!! Tammy's kits are perfect too,...just grab a bag and you're ready to go!
Without further adieu.....The September 2015 Freaky Fast formula...
1. Cardstock or subtle patterned paper background 
2. 5 inch square patterned paper
3. 3 1/4 x5 patterned paper
4. 1 1/4 X 12 patterned paper
My layout has three large photos.  But, you may choose however many that you want to fit your wishes.
And here are the simple steps to completing the layout using the formula...
1. Collect pictures.
2. Cut your patterned paper to the dimensions stated above.
3. Push the paper around your cardstock till you achieve the look you want, or simply lift one of the layouts below!
4. Adhere and EMBELLISH! It is that easy!!

Each month, we will introduce a new formula.  On Fridays leading up to the next months Sneak Peeks, we will use that month's formula to show you a page by one of our designers.  Today, since this is our first installment, we have two Freaky Fast pages to share with you.  The first is from Heather Robertson.  She used the Echo Park Paper Wild Life line from the September 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

I created the second layout using our September 2015 Freaky Fast Formula. It was created with Crate Paper Wonder from the September 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.  I loved the kitty die cuts but wasn't sure how to use them until I remembered a few photographs that I had from our Arizona trip when my boys were given an opportunity to feed a tiger. I love the "Keep Calm" images, and used my computers' basic Paint program to edit one that I found online for the occasion. The red paper with the littles x's that I used as my base is the backside of Crate Paper Wonder Bright, (the sheet displayed in the FOTM with the fun words).  The fork and spoon came from the 3/2015 Cafe Club FOTM Kit.

Next week, we will show you what Brenda Ragsdale did with the formula.  You will see another very different result!  So, lift one of these if you want to, but don't be limited by them.  Happy Scrapping!

Thanks for visiting, and don't forget to stop by next Friday for another layout using the same formula!
