Echo Park Paper: Create

I love when a paper collection comes out that celebrates all things crafty! The new I’d Rather Be Crafting collection by Echo Park Paper is so much fun! I’ve been wanting to add something fresh to my scrapbook room decor and decided to use this collection to create today’s project.

I used my Silhouette Cameo 3 machine to cut out the CREATE letters from Carta Bella’s Ultra White Felt Designer Cardstock. Once assembled the letters measure 5″ in height, the perfect size for using the 6×6 patterned papers to decorate!

I chose a variety of papers, layering patterns over solids. I used the Frames & Tags EphemeraElements Stickers, and 6×12 Chipboard pieces as accents on each letter.

I used the Enamel Dots to add dimension to each flower center and then also sprinkled among a couple of the embellishment clusters.

These turned out so cute! I have a small window sill in my office that these are going to look great on!

Echo Park Paper: The Pure JOY of Christmas

Christmas is a time for traditions and today’s page features one of those for my kids … creating a candy train at school! I pulled out the “A Perfect Christmas” collection to document this fun day for my daughter.

One of my favorite papers in this collection is the Merry Mistletoe paper. I love florals that I can cut out and use as accents on my layouts. I used several on this page and then added die cut pine branches behind them for more texture and depth.

Besides snowflakes, pine boughs are my favorite dies to use at Christmas time! This one comes from the Be Merry Branch Die Set in this collection. Isn’t it gorgeous cut from the Classic Green Felt Designer Cardstock?!

This fun embellishment cluster features my kids’ favorite part of Christmas … the presents! I added enamel dots to the center of each bow for a bit of shine.

What school traditions have been carried through each child in your family? Do they deserve a spot in your memory book?

Carta Bella Paper: You Could Even Say It Glows

One of my favorite things about Christmas is the magic of twinkling lights. Because of that I am always on the lookout for projects that are able to be lit with a battery-operated candle or light. With a bit of vellum, this Fireplace Box would be so cute placed on a mantel with a light inside! You could even give it to a friend with a treat inside and then include a light so they can use is as a decoration afterward.

The idea for this project began with the darling large Santa from the Santa’s List paper of the Carta Bella A Very Merry collection. I LOVE him and just HAD to use him as a focal point for a project. I looked around the Silhouette Design Store and found a cut file for this Fireplace Box and knew he would look so cute next to it unloading Christmas presents for the family he was visiting.

A beautiful paper bow created with the Scallop 3D Bow Die Set tops off this box. I also added several branches from the ‘Tis the Season Branch Die Set and holly from the Christmas Holly & Berries Die Set. All that foliage really makes this project feel special!

The mantle of this fireplace is decorated with a sprinkling of stickers, along with a chipboard ornament and a bit of holly. The sparkle stickers surrounding this little cluster adds to the magical feel of this project!

In the bottom left corner is a happy holiday greeting, layered over a jar of mouth-watering candy!

Doesn’t it look festive with a light tucked inside! It makes me want to snuggle up with my kids and read them the classic story, “Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

Do you enjoy creating dimensional papercrafts to decorate your home for the holidays? I love it! These kind of projects always add that magical touch to a room!

Carta Bella Paper: Ahoy

Earlier this week I pulled out the Carta Bella Paper Yacht Club collection to work on a layout. While it was sitting on my desk, I decided to create the following two-page layout as well!

AHOY

While we were visiting Norfolk, Virginia, a few years ago, we toured a Sailing School Ship called the Baroque Eagle. It was so interesting and we learned so much!

This is an older collection(which means it’s getting harder to find), but so timeless for use on nautical-themed pages.

That woodgrain decorative tape has my heart! I love the rustic touch it adds and sprinkled a few strips of it throughout my design.

While we were touring the ship, we were each given a fake coin featuring the Baroque Eagle. It works perfectly as an embellishment along with the chipboard pieces, don’t you think?!

I cut out the letters from the Alphabet Letters paper to create the title. I love how each letter has it’s own style and personality. I replaced the letter “O” with one of the chipboard pieces from the 6×12 Chipboard set. The anchor chipboard piece and sailboat decorative brad add more flair!
