Freebie Friday – Queen & Co.

Freebie Friday with Jen Walker

Happy Friday, and what a happy one it is! This is a rare weekend where our friends in Canada have a long weekend Friday to Sunday and our friends in the USA have a long weekend Saturday to Monday. Love it!

I am going to jump right in and tell you all about today’s Freebie Friday sponsor. One of my all time favourite scrapbook companies is Queen & Co. Just after I started scrapbooking, I learned of Queen & Co.’s amazing embellishments. At the time, I had no idea just how much fun I would have over the years using these embellishments and the subsequent releases. I also had no idea what to do with all the embellishments I had bought, but I knew they made me happy. Skip forward more than ten years later and I am still loving Queen & Co. products. Their newest release is absolutely a favourite of mine! The various toppings and foam front shaker kits make creating shaker cards a ton of fun and a breeze to create!

Here are a few of my favourite cards from the Queen & Co team:

Hello card by Queen & Co.

You Make Life So Fun card by Queen & Co

Strawberry Card by Queen & Co.

Flip Flops card by Queen & Co.

Thank You card by Queen & Co.


Friends of Scrapbook Expo
