Echo Park Paper: Beware

I have spent the early part of this week in my scrapbook room playing with all of the Halloween collections in my stash. It’s been so much fun! I’m catching up on a lot of pages and getting pumped up for my favorite holiday at the same time. I’ll be sharing these pages with you over the next week or so.

The first one feature the adorable Echo Park Paper Bewitched collection. I thought the florals in this collection were the perfect accent for this page of my daughter and her friend dressed as gypsies last Halloween!

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine and a cut file by Echo Park (Design #214711) for the title. I replaced the letter “a” with the owl sticker and added a witch hat sticker to the letter “b.”

I love when journaling cards have interesting shapes on them to cut out and use as layers. Here, I used one of the cards from the Journaling Cards paper to the left of the photos. It was the perfect spot to anchor the potion bottle, candy, jar and butterfly stickers, too!

I cut the floral/stripe border from the Border Strips paper to use at the bottom, and cut a large circle from the Phantom Pumpkins paper to highlight the main photo. A couple of cute pumpkins and other stickers accent the photos along the bottom.

The purple damask paper is the B side of the Trick or Treat paper and was the perfect pattern to bring everything together on the gray cardstock background.

Echo Park Paper: Santa’s Workshop Gable Gift Box

Hello, friends! I’m back today to share an idea for wrapping up those holiday treats this Christmas. I used the Carta Bella Paper Santa’s Workshop to create this roomy gable box, perfect for a batch of cookies, loaf of bread, rolls, or whatever goodie you would like to take to a neighbor or friend!

I added a handcut a snowbank from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock for the front of the box, so that the chipboard Santa and reindeer had a place to park the sleigh. I cut the “M-E-R-R-Y” letters out from the banner stickers and used foam dots to pop them up above the large “Christmas” word sticker along the top of the box. A couple of chipboard ornaments fill out the top right corner of the box front.

I placed the To/From die cut (Frames & Tags Ephemera) on top of the cheer red/white striped panel (Season’s Greetings paper) on the top of the box. A gingerbread boy sticker is waving “hello!”
I used my Silhouette Cameo machine and the “Poinsettia” cut file by Echo Park Paper (Design #96543 in the Silhouette Design Store) to create the blue poinsettia to the right of the tag. The blue paper is from the 6×6 paper pad and matches the rest of the collection perfectly. I used Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock for the leaves. The flower center was created using the Gold Shimmer Designer Cardstock and a flower punch a yellow flat-back pearl stickers from my stash.

Anytime I give a gift, I like to write a short note to go with it, so I created this small, coordinating enclosure card using the scraps I had left on my desk. I used the Merry Christmas Decorative Tape adhered to a scrap of white cardstock as a quick-and-easy sentiment. (On a sidenote, wouldn’t this tape be GREAT to make sentiments for all of your Christmas cards this year?! Just sayin’ … *wink*)

Echo Park Paper: Fill’er Up, Santa! Christmas House Gift Boxes

Today I am looking ahead to Christmas (Ack! I know!) and sharing a set of Christmas House Gift Boxes on the Echo Park Paper blog using the NEW Merry & Bright collection. These would be perfect for filling with treats and trinkets this coming holiday!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out these boxes using the Cotton Tail Village SVG Set by SVGCuts.com. Even though this set was meant for Spring/Easter … the house is fun to decorate for other holidays! (It would be cute as a Haunted House for Halloween, too, don’t you think?!) Just change up the paper and embellishments, and waaalaaa!
Each box is created from a mix of patterned papers. This first one features the green plaid Jolly Words paper. The lid of this box is cut from the 2×2 Journaling Cards paper and the body of the box is cut from the Merry Presents paper. The smaller patterns of the 6×6 paper pad were perfect for the roof and trim pieces. Elements from the Chipboard Accents and Sticker Sheet decorate the front of each box.

On this house, I stitched together three die cut trees (Merry Christmas Tree Die Set) to create a dimensional tree to add to the front of the house. Simply bend up the layers with your fingers after stitching together. A Chipboard Santa is waving a friendly “Hello!”

In addition to the stickers and chipboard pieces, I used green and red baker’s twine wrapped around the wreath and an enamel dot for the doorknob to add additional texture. There are even glittering gems (purchased from the Dollar Tree) lining the roofline! These are the kind of details that make projects like this so much fun to create!

Carta Bella Paper: Christmas Eve Scrapbook Page

If there is one thing that gets me excited for Christmas each year, it is seeing the new Christmas collections by Echo Park Paper and Carta Bella Paper! The Carta Bella Paper Christmas collection was the perfect match for this photo of my kids sporting their Christmas jammies last Christmas Eve.

I used the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper for the background of this page. I LOVE this pattern! I wanted it to fade out a little bit around the page elements, so I used my finger to smudge white gesso around the paper layers, but left the outer edges uncovered.

I used the “Christmas” letter stickers from the Sticker Sheet combined with a die cut “merry” word for the title. The title is anchored by strips of patterned paper cut from the Gift Tags paper (green text pattern) and the Border Strips paper. I also added a few die cut snowflakes (Celebrate Christmas – Christmas Day Snow Die Set) accented with the decorative brads.

I added my journaling to a block cut from the 4×4 Journaling Cards paper and then decorated the spaces to the left and below with Chipboard Accents, a die cut stocking (Santa Stocking Die Set), and Stickers.
(Sidenote: The packaging for the Santa Stocking Die Set doesn’t show a piece to create the cuff of the stocking, but it does actually come with one … so three dies total … just in case you were wondering! 🙂 )
