Echo Park Paper: “You Are PAW-some” Dog House Treat Box

Hello, friends! Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog with a fun dog house-shaped treat box for the dog lover in your life. I used the adorable new A Dog’s Tail collection for this project. Check it out below!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic die cutting machine to cut out the dog house using a house cut file from the Gingerbread Chalet Village SVG Set by The base of the box is cut from the Puppy Play Paper. The roof was cut from Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock and then covered with Furry Friends paper shingles (green polka dots). I created the shingles by cutting out small rectangles using my Silhouette Cameo and then adhering them one-by-one to the roof.

Next, I added a piece of acetate over the dog house door and added some grass border die cuts (using a metal die from my stash) along the bottom of each of the four walls. I then decorated the front of the house with several stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet and a dog that I fussy-cut from the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper. I die cut the heart above the door using the Postage Stamp Die Set (an older metal die set by Echo Park Paper).

I placed a treat inside of a cellophane bag, tied it with a bow, and then placed it inside of the gift box. I then tied everything closed with a cheery, red, plaid ribbon.

Every gift needs a cute tag, don’t you think?! The tags in the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack make it easy! I attached one to the bow at the top of the box using a bit of white twine, and then decorated the tag with a few small die cut hearts (Flower Set #5 Die Set).

Now this fun little treat is ready to give to your PAW-some friend! They will be delighted to open such a fun gift!

Simple Stories: Smile

I’m back with another page using the Simple Stories Hello Summer collection and a June 2018 sketch by PageMaps!


These snapshots are from our trip to Hawaii a couple of years ago. We were just standing on this path waiting for a tour guide … and as I looked at my family, I just felt so grateful to be there in that beautiful place, with these beautiful people. Definitely a reason to “Smile,” don’t you think?! Life is so good!

I anchored the “Smile” sticker on a speech bubble die cut (created from a metal die I have in my stash) to give it a bit more presence as my title. Next, I surrounded the title with a few more stickers from the Combo Sticker Sheet. The sun cloud, leaves, and flower are all from this sheet. That cute little lime slice is from the chipboard sheet.

I used a stamp from my stash to create the journaling block and then decorated the left side with a chipboard cactus and more stickers.

At the bottom of the page, I used the chipboard banner as a resting place for the “Relax” die cut and other elements. I stamped my date here with a Heidi Swapp date stamp and then added a bit of Heidi Swapp Black Velvet Color Shine to break up the linear feel of this page. (I’m always soooo nervous to add that final step of ink splatters … thankfully, I felt good about how they fell on the page this time! Whew! :D)

I think that pineapple “Peace, Love, & Pineapples” paper is just so cute here and really makes this page shine!

Simple Stories: Good Vibes

Hello! I hope you are having a great week and enjoying your summer so far! My page today features a snapshot from one of our summer family traditions … eating snowcones!


I mentioned earlier this month that a great way to keep up with your summer scrapping is to utilize sketches. I am taking my own advice and using another sketch by Laura Whitaker to kick off today’s page.

I’m also using the happy, bright, and fun Hello Summer collection by Simple Stories.

A bit of the Enjoy Summer washi tape with a few phrase stickers on top decorate each corner of this page.

I’ve fussy cut another title from the “Who’s Ready for Summer” paper and decorated a few of the letters with sunglasses. They are indeed “chillin'” as the scripty word sticker above the title suggests! Ha! But really, they are just playing it safe and protecting their eyes from the chipboard sun up in the corner. *wink*

I used lots of fussy-cut flowers from the Paradise Found paper on this page. I love the way they look peeking out among all of the 6×8 paper layers behind the photo.

The teal chevron paper included behind the photo and running down the right edge of the page is just a piece of older Pebbles paper I utilized from my scrap bin.

I love how this collection dresses up this everyday snapshot of my kids enjoying a summer treat. What everyday snapshot do you have hanging out on your phone or computer that deserves a page in your family scrapbook?

Echo Park Paper: Camping Trail Mix

Do you know someone who loves trail mix? I happen to know several people who would be delighted to get a large jar of trail mix as a gift, … it is their favorite treat! (And one of mine, too!)
For today’s project I decorated a large jar of this peanut-ty treat using the Carta Bella Paper Gone Camping collection. Your outdoorsman would be delighted to receive this as he is heading out for a day of fishing. I mean, who wouldn’t love having a delicious snack to take along?!

The first thing I did was wrap the jar with a strip of the striped Campout paper. I then added a band of the the fishing lure patterned Fly Fishing paper on top of the striped paper.  The top of the jar is decorated with a circle cut from the plaid paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

Next, I fussy-cut three wood slices from the Travel Patches paper and grouped them together on the front of the jar to anchor the rest of the decorative elements. The main piece is the Fishing Tackle Die Cut from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack. I added the fisherman sticker on top of the die cut along with a few trees and the “Fishing Hole” sign stickers for a bit of scenery. A few die cut pine branches (Be Merry Branch Die Set) are tucked behind the left side.

I tucked in a few more branches cut from the Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock on the right side of the label, and then added a group of fish “caught” … I mean CUT … from the Fish Facts Paper. A bit of jute tied around the neck of the jar finishes everything off!
