Guest Blogging at Echo Park Paper & a Few My Mind’s Eye Projects

I am so excited to be Guest Blogging at Echo Park Paper Blog today! I love their cute collections and was excited to play with their “Everybody Loves Christmas” collection. Don’t the happy colors remind you of “visions of sugar plums?” 😀

Here is the scrapbook page I created.

Patterned Papers & Sticker Elements: Echo Park Paper
Cricut Cartridge: Christmas Solutions Cartridge
Chipboard Letters: Making Memories
Buttons: Basic Grey

I also wanted to share with you a projects I have created for the My Mind’s Eye blog recently.

I found this snowflake on sale in the Christmas section at Lowe’s Home Improvement store last year. I used My Mind’s Eye patterned papers, red chipboard letters, and brads to add a festive greeting to the front of it. I finished the top of it off by adding faux berries, a ribbon, and a jewel and now it decorates the glass door leading into my scrap room. I love that I can take my scrappy supplies and make an adorable decoration for my home!

Each year we like to make an ornament for each of our kids, and if possible, we love to add a current picture to their ornament. This ornament was created using the My Mind’s Eye Colorful Christmas collection from last year. I purchased the plastic ornaments at the craft store along with the clear filler beads (snow). These are quite easy to put together!

First, I opened the ornament and traced the diameter of the circle onto patterned paper. I then cut two pieces of patterned paper and adhered them back-to-back. On one side I added a photo of my child and the year. On the other side I added a chipboard character and chipboard snowflakes.

Before gluing the ornament shut I added white bead filler for the snow on each side of the ornament.

Add ribbons and a button finish the ornament off.

Thanks for stopping by today! I wanted to share this project for those of you who may still have Colorful Christmas in your stash, but it is really easy to switch out the current collections, too!

Hope you are enjoying your holiday!
