Fuss Free: Hello World 1 & 2, Iron Scrapper Week Four

You know those days you wake up and say "Hello World!" And those days are glorious, because you're filled with optimism, and you know - just emphatically know - that everything about that day is going to be amazing. Fuss Free: Hello World and Fuss Free: Hello World 2 are templates created with those days in mind. It might be something as simple as seeing the beauty of a toddler eating cereal or watching the sun's rays move across the pages of a book. Or it could be as emotionally complex as getting married or giving birth. Either way, Fuss Free: Hello World is there to help you take your photos and words and make something beautiful so you never forget those memories!

 For this third week, we are featuring songs from the 2000s. I have two double template packs for you. Keep reading to find out why I chose my songs for this week, and get a closer look at my Iron Scrapper Weekly Collection Products!



I chose "I Got A Feeling" by The Black Eyed Peas. This song makes me think of Friday nights after a long work week, when you can head out for dinner and some fun conversation. There are always those magic Fridays, when you get off work and you have this bubbly joy inside. That's what this song describes for me ~ that feeling that you just know without a doubt you're going to have a good time.


I chose "Wake Me Up" by Avicii and Aloe Blacc. I love the line in the song, " . . . life's a game made for everyone, and love is a prize." I love the whole feel of the song, about life being a journey and not a destination. It's easy to let go of our dreams and focus on achieving certain things that society encourages us to complete. I want to be immersed in my life, in my dreams, and be woken up when it's all over, at the end, when I'm wiser and and older, to see that just by living I found myself and my purpose.


Join us on Thursday, August 6th at 10 PM EST for our Reveal Chat - Grand Finale. We'll have a recap of the contest and all the winners will be announced! Don't miss it!

Fuss Free: Double Time 5 & 6 and Iron Scrapper Week 3!

I'm mostly a single page scrapper, but I've recently starting creating double page layouts and I've converted them into Fuss Free: Double Time 5 and Fuss Free: Double Time 6. They are a handy tool to have in your stash to help create coordinated albums quickly. Yet because I'm still a single page scrapper at heart, I've also made these into 12x12 versions so that you can mix and match to create different combinations of double page templates, or you can just use them as single layouts as well!

 For this third week, we are featuring songs from the 1980's and 1990's. I have two double template packs for you. Keep reading to find out why I chose my songs for this week, and get a closer look at my Iron Scrapper Weekly Collection Products!



I chose "Tainted Love" by Soft Cell from the 1980's. I thought this was the coolest sounding song when I was in middle school. I remember going to the skating rink with my cousins and this song playing. Whenever I hear the song now, I can still smell how the skating rink smelled, I can still see the disco lights, and I can still feel hanging onto the wall carpet when I first would go out onto the rink until I got my "skating legs." I didn't know until adulthood that it was actually a remake from a 1960's song! I love both versions, but this version will always be my favorite. 


I chose "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston from the 1990's. I loved the original song performed by Dolly Parton, but was a huge Whitney Houston fan during my teens. It was no surprise that the movie "The Bodyguard" came out in the early 1990's, that I loved how Whitney performed it. I'm still a sucker for the original though, and will go back and listen to it after I listen to Whitney singing her heart out. The song just breaks my heart, but in a good way. Know what I mean?



Join us on Wednesday, July 22nd at 10 PM EST for our Reveal Chat - Week 4. I will give you the SCOOP on the Weekly Challenges and Products. You’ll also be able to watch Chelle of Chelle's Creations scrap a challenge layout using the coordinating Iron Scrapper products!
