Welcome to October's second installment of FREAKY FAST FRIDAY!!!

Did you enjoy it last week? Will you try it?
Have you just joined us for the first time?  Then, check back at Bringin' Back the Freaky! or just read on.

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!
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!
This month, we are even able to offer up a prize to one of our subscribers who participates:

 Simple Stories Life Documented Day to Day Card Set

Let's look at this month's formula... 
  1. Cardstock or subtle patterned paper background 
  2. 9"x 5" patterned paper
  3. 10"x 6" patterned paper
  4. 10"x 3" patterned paper
  5. 11"x 3" patterned paper
  6. 11"x 1" strip patterned paper
  7. 11.5"x 1/2" strip patterned paper
It's as easy as 1,2, 3,...(and 4)!!
1. Collect as many pictures as you like.
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!!

Want to see what Heather came up with?

Fabulous!  I love how different each designer's take is with the recipe!  Heather Robertson created her layout with the Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice line from the October 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

Hope to see yours too!  And, here's a recap from last week:


Tammy Harp created a wonderful Fall layout with the Simple Stories Pumpkin Spice line from the October 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

A Memory Fave!

I played along using Dear Lizzy Documentary from the  October 2015 Flavor of the Month kit.

Happy Scrapping!!  See ya next Friday with another layout using our October Freaky Fast Formula!!
