Echo Park Paper: Autumn Gift Basket

Fall paper collections always put me in the mood for homebaked treats and connecting with neighbors. Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper blog with an apple barrel basket, created with the new Celebrate Autumn collection, that would be perfect for taking to a dear friend. Inside I have tucked a couple of dishtowels, a set of ceramic measuring spoons, a paper acorn box filled with treats, and a jar of honey.

I cut the “Thankful & Blessed” oval on the front of the basket from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and placed it on top of a band of Autumn Acorns paper. Next, I used the Falling Leaves paper and Chestnut Brown Linen Designer Cardstock to create the paper sunflowers adorning either side. (Find this adorable sunflower cut file HERE at MyScrapChick.com)
I painted the brown cardstock flower centers with THIS gold glitter water brush pen by Art-C to make them shimmer and sparkle. (I couldn’t quite capture these on camera … I sooo wish you could see them in person! They are AWESOME!)

The orange flowers were created from orange paper from the 6×6 paper pad. I used the Decorative Brads for the centers, and then added them around the sunflowers along with a few floral stickers from the Element Sticker Sheet.

The basket itself was cut using Kraft Designer Cardstock using the basket file from the Fall Harvest SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. I used the Wood Grain Embossing Folder to give it lots of delicious, woodsy texture!

I created another sunflower for the top of this box to coordinate with the basket, and then tied a tag from the Frames & Tags Ephemera pack to the acorn’s stem. The acorn lid is created from more Chestnut Brown Linen cardstock embossed with the Autumn Florals Embossing Folder.

Stashbusting: Beach Fun

This is about the time during Summer that I feel it slipping between my fingers. There’s a sudden panic to fit in one more road trip, or to make sure we have checked off all of our summer bucket list items as we start making the shift to thinking about Back to School.

The great thing is that Summer can last all year long in the scrapbook world! Just pull out some bright papers and spend some time working on a summer memory or two.

Today I am sharing a page using the Carta Bella Paper Beach Day collection with a few fish making an appearance from the Echo Park Paper Under the Sea collection. I’ve mixed these items together with a few sticker sets that have been hanging around in my stash.

My fish are flying out of the ocean waves with the help of a few yellow toothpicks that I grabbed from my kitchen.

I created a little scene on this circle punched from the Cool Cruising paper using the Beach Day Element Stickers, a puffy sun sticker by Mambi, and a dimensional umbrella sticker from an older Recollections sticker sheet.

The “F-U-N” pennant stickers were also from the Recollections sticker sheet and look so cute here with the blue Momenta letter stickers. (It’s not often you find bright blue letter stickers … they are usually aqua or teal … so I snag this color up whenever I see it somewhere!)

More stickers and a punched photograph adorn the circular elements at the bottom of the page.

I love printing my photos in smaller sizes so I have room to play with design elements on a page, and this one was a lot of fun to do!

Carta Bella Paper: Pack Your Bags for Portland

This year for our summer vacation my family spent a week in a beach house in Oregon. It was absolutely amazing. The first night we arrived we took in the sights and sounds of Portland before making the drive out to the coast. We ate at an amazing restaurant and I couldn’t wait to get home and scrapbook about it using the new Pack Your Bags collection.

I was so happy to see a tag on the Hello World Paper that included the Portland airport. Of course I had to include it at the top of my page!

Because this was the day of our arrival, I used the airplane sticker to create a little scene at the top of the page. The clouds were cut from a paper in the 6×6 paper pad.

It was raining in Portland as we were exploring the city (no surprise there, ha! ha!). I represented the rain on this page by creating  the blue textured background with the Destination Stripe 6×6 Stencil and some texture paste (tinted blue with spray mist) on the Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. I love the way it looks!
I stacked together several suitcase stickers to accent my page title of “Discover Portland.” The “discover” word is from the Escape Word Die Set. The “Portland” letters were cut from a red paper of the 6×6 paper pad using the Script Alphabet Die Set.

The patterned border strips and pink paper below the title are also from the 6×6 paper pad. I added my typed journaling strips to the pink paper and then accented the bottom right corner of the page with several stickers layered on top of the red/white ticket from the Ephemera pack.

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!
