Can you feel it? Can you feel the change in the night air? Fall is upon us … and that makes me want to gather friends and family for a cozy night around the fire pit.
Today I have a fun little fall gift up on the Echo Park Paper blog
that you might want to make for your neighbors, family, or friends … Smore Treat Boxes!
Next, I selected various papers from the 6×6 paper pad to adorn each side of the box. That was the hardest part! I just love all of the cute patterns in this collection and I wanted to use them all! LOL!
I can’t wait to give these to the people I love to wish them a Happy Fall … my very favorite season of all!
Other Supplies: Dark Brown Distress Ink, Adhesive and Foam Squares, Clear Report Cover Sheet, Silhouette Cameo Electronic Die Cutting Machine, Smores Kit Tote Box by Snapdragon Snippets (Design #78024)
Have a great day!
It’s August! And at our house that means it’s time for birthday parties! All of my kids were born during the summer, which means I morph into full party-planning mode during this time of year.
Echo Park’s paper collections are perfect for making your party unique. I couldn’t resist planning an adorable Mermaid party for my daughter using the Let’s Be Mermaids collection
… because, let’s face it … being a mermaid is every little girl’s dream!
I used my Silhoeutte Cameo electronic die cutting machine to create everything you see here! A mermaid sandcastle centerpiece, ocean shaker favor boxes, and a crown and wand for the special birthday mermaid!
I created the castle using the castle cut file from the Bedtime Stories SVG Set by SVGCuts.com
. Decorating the castle was my favorite part! I had so much fun adding all of the little characters around every side of the sandcastle!
I even decorated the sides and back! It’s important for your centerpiece to look lovely from all sides, not just the front, right?!😀
The birthday girl will feel so special wearing a crown and carrying a wand adorned with starfish cut outs.
Every crown needs a touch of sparkle! The glitter Enamel Dots work perfectly here.
I always like to give our guests something extra special to take home. I created these Ocean Shaker Favor Boxes with a little aquarium scene inside the lid.
The fish were created with the Fish Die Set #2 dies
that coordinate with the Let’s Be Mermaids collection
. I popped them up on foam squares to give the ocean scene a little more depth. A sprinkling of aqua sequins look like underwater bubbles. So fun!
I love to throw parties! And I hope this has inspired you to think outside the box and use your supplies to make your next celebration unique.
Thanks for stopping by today!
One of my favorite seasons to decorate for is Autumn. I love the rich, warm colors and all of the cozy textures! It’s only natural that the Carta Bella Autumn collection
has become a fast-favorite of mine! Today I am sharing a Cuckoo Clock I created with this adorable collection. I plan on displaying it in our mudroom on a shelf above our coat hooks. It’s going to look so cute!
The cut the structure of the cuckoo clock house from the Fall Stitching
and Harvest Season papers
. I love how these two patterns compliment each other and embody all the warmth and coziness of the season with the cross-stitched letters and leaves.
The front of the clock is decorated with the adorable scenes from the Element Stickers
. The clock face is an Echo Park Print & Cut image found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #32380
). There are also several more to choose from if you are looking for something in a different color or style, and really helped this project come to life!
Every time I look at this project, I will remember not to take a single minute of Fall for granted. It’s my favorite time of year and I want to enjoy every second!
See you next time!
Happy Monday, Friends! Today I am sharing with you one of my projects featured in the FREE Echo Park Idea Book … available as a free download right HERE.
For the book, I created a really fun party set using the ADORABLE Echo Park Paper Party Time collection. Here is a peek at the 3D Cake Centerpiece I made. If you’d like to see the favor boxes, cupcake toppers, and party hat I created to go along with the cake, be sure to check out the IDEA BOOK here.
PARTY TIME CAKE CENTERPIECE
I created the three-tiered cake using my Silhouette Cameo machine and the cake cut file from the Happy Birthday to You SVG Set by SVGCuts.com.
The Cake Stand is by Lori Whitlock and can be found HERE in the Silhouette Design Store.
To decorate the sides of the cake, I made several 3D stars using the 3D Hollow Star Ornament by Alaa’K Designs. You can find it in the Silhouette Store HERE.
The stars on the top of the cake were added using sucker sticks that I purchased in the baking section of the craft store.
For the smaller stars, I simply used the negative piece left over from the 3D stars and scored and folded them to create the 3D stars. You can find a tutorial HERE on my old blog on how to do that, if you haven’t tried it before. It’s really easy!
Finally, the sprays were creating using this 3D Firework cut file by Amy Robison, also found in the Silhouette Design Store.
A few gems and some gem border stickers add sparkle and shine and really make this 3D cake stand out.
Have a great week!
