Echo Park Paper: Bewitching Halloween Home Decor

Hello!I’m back with another papercrafting project for your home! This time, we are looking forward to Halloween … my favorite!
Today I am working with the brand new Bewitched collection by Echo Park Paper. This collection features the prettiest, sweetest witch you have ever seen and I couldn’t wait to feature her in my design!

You have probably seen the wood block decor that looks like the blocks are mounted on a candlestick with a knob adorning the top … well, I came across a cut file by MyScrapChick.com that mimics that look except every piece is made out of paper instead of wood! I couldn’t wait to give it a try!
I cut the base for each piece using Carta Bella Ebony Black Felt Designer Cardstock. After assembling, I used a white ink pad to give the edges a spooky and distressed feel.
The larger block is decorated with the adorable witch sticker from the Bewitched collection. She is flying her broomstick over a circular moon cut from the Trouble Brewing paper. I used the Happy Halloween die set to add a few bats to keep her company.
At the bottom of the witch block I added the “Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet” phrase sticker. I tucked in a floral sticker, the witch’s broom and a spooky cauldron.

The smaller block features the witch’s best friend, a black cat! I own a black cat myself, and so I love to add black cats in my Halloween decor as much as possible! This sweet little guy is peeking out of from a friendly Jack-O-Lantern sitting next to the jar of candy. I used flower stickers and a shiny, black satin ribbon on both blocks, tying them together visually. The sides of both blocks are also both decorated with panels of Witch Hats paper.

Do you have a favorite Halloween icon you like to add to your decor? For me, it is witches, black cats, and jack-o-lanterns … and I was so happy to be able to include all three on this project!

Tombstone Treat Bags for Halloween

Happy weekend! Are you playing in your craft room today?

I’m back with another project using the Die Cuts with a View Premium Halloween Spirit paper pad that will be hitting the shelves this season.

Treats aren’t just for the kids at Halloween … I mean, why should they have all the fun, right?! Oh, you could definitely make these for the kids, but I think I will be giving them out to a few of my friends!

These treat boxes open by lifting the top of the tombstone off. Inside I placed homestyle caramels in a pretty rows!

The foiled accents of the paper and stickers from this paper pad were a bit tricky to capture with my camera, but they make these projects Oh, So Special! Both the “Boo” and the “Happy Halloween” are shiny gold foil on the box below.

This cat is pulling his scariest face to try and keep you away from this candy haul. The ghost may be frightened, but don’t you run away … there are caramels waiting for you inside! Ha!

The hardest part about making these cute treat boxes is going to be giving them away! They look just as cute as a Halloween decoration sitting all together in a row.

Echo Park Paper: Hello Easter Paper Sugar Egg

As a child I was always fascinated by the details captured inside of sugar eggs and have always thought it would be fun to create one out of paper. I couldn’t wait to give it a try with the new Hello Easter collection by Echo Park Paper!

I used my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine and a cut file by My Scrap Chick to cut out the pieces for the egg (If you don’t own an electronic cutting machine, the purchase of the file also includes a PDF template).
The base of the egg is constructed using the beautifully, sturdy Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock (my FAVORITE white cardstock!). I then cut the inner decorative panels from the pink bunny patterned paper (4×4 Journaling Cards paper), and the outer decorative panels using the Hoppy Easter paper.
Next, I placed a foam block and bright green Easter grass inside the egg. I then used the cute elements from the Chipboard Accents to create the scene inside. The pieces are attached to skinny, flat craft sticks that I stuck into the foam. The bunny and chick look like they are having so much fun searching for their Easter eggs!

I even added a banner sticker (Element Sticker sheet) going across the top of the inside of the egg for a party feel! You can catch a glimpse of it here in this photo.

I cut the frame pieces to go around the opening of the egg from Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock and the Yellow/Green Solid paper from the Hello Easter Solids Kit. I used a small flower punch to add another layer of flowers on top of the floral border included with the cut file fore more dimension. I then finished off each flower with a pink gem center.
At the bottom of the sugar egg opening, I placed the “Hello Easter” die cut (Ephemera) matted with Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper (Hello Easter Solids Kit). I tucked the floral chipboard piece to the left, and a few flower and carrot stickers (Element Sticker Sheet) to the right).

For the top of the egg, I used the Lt. Pink/Dk. Pink Solid paper again to create a bow from 0.5″ x 12″ paper strips. I simply looped a variety of lengths together to form the bow and then secured them together with a brad. The tails of the bow are curled the same way you would curl curling ribbon … by using the edge of a flat tool (like a bone folder) instead of a pair of scissors.
I adorned the center of the bow with a die cut flower created with the Flower Die Set #4. The center of the flower sparkles and shines with a bright blue, sparkly gem brad from the Sweet Baby Boy Decorative Brads.

Echo Park Paper: Hello Spring Rainboot

I’m getting so excited for Spring and all that comes with it … rain showers, sprouting grass, birds chirping, and colorful flowers! Ahhhh! I can feel the warm sunshine on my arms now!

Today I have a fun 3D project to share with you … a Rainboot filled with adorable paper flowers and pinwheels!
Jana Eubank Echo Park Paper Hello Spring Rainboot Box 1 600
I used the Echo Park Paper Hello Spring collection along with the Hello Easter Solids Kit to create this cheerful wellie boot. The butterfly patterned paper (4×4 Journaling Cards paper) was perfect for the main body of the boot. I then added patterned accents with the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper and the Spring Flowers paper.
I created a tag using the Fancy Tags Die Set to hang from the strap of the rainboot. I added a sticker from the Hello Spring Element Sticker sheet and then adorned it with a butterfly created with the Bloom Into Spring Die Set.

Next, it was time to fill up my boot! I used paper straws and dies to create the pinwheels and flower using more papers from the Hello Spring collection. The pinwheel was created with the Sunny Pinwheel Die Set, and the flower was created with the Flower Set #1 Die Set. I also added flowers and leaves to the center of each pinwheel, complete with sparkling, gem brads from the Sweet Baby Boy Decorative Brads.

This project is so versatile! It’s the perfect home decor piece to brighten a window sill … or fill the boot with a treat and brighten up a friend’s day!
