I’m so excited to finally share what I have been working on!
My NEW class “Papercrafting Projects for All Seasons” is now available for FREE at Scrapbook.com!
This class combines all of my favorite things; scrapbooking, papercrafting, gift ideas, parties, holidays, and seasons! I poured my heart and soul into this project with the hope that it will inspire YOU to get creative, too!
Come check it out! I’d love to see you there!
Four years ago my family checked off a bucket list item when we took our summer vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. We stayed in a beach house and/ spent our days playing in the ocean, collecting shells, and eating good food. It was amazing! The Simple Stories Sunshine & Blue Skies collection, with its sunkissed vibe, was perfect for scrapbooking all of the beach photos I took while we were there!
I pulled out the Say Cheese 4 Fun Words Large Metal Dies to create my title. I die cut the title three times. Two layers are from Navy/Emerald paper, and the third layer is from the navy dot side of the Let’s Escape paper. I layered them all together with foam tape to give the title lots of dimension.
I LOVE the Pool People Bits & Pieces and couldn’t resist creating a little scene with them below the title. I surrounded them with phrase stickers from the Combo Stickers and 4×6 Stickers, and added in more accents from the Bits & Pieces pack and Chipboard Stickers.
I used dies from my stash to compliment the Sun die cut at the top of the page. I used foam tape to add a couple of leaf stickers and a phrase from the Combo Sticker Sheet.
This embellishment cluster on the right page was a lot of fun to create. I love combining die cuts in an “L” shape to accent the corner of my photos. I also added another die cut word to this side, as well, accenting it with the hexagon umbrella shapes from the collection, phrase stickers (4×6 Stickers), and that super-cute, polaroid camera sticker!
I love how beachy this collection feels! It was the perfect way to document our beach adventure on the East Coast!
Summertime is about so many things, but for my daughter it is about hanging out with her friends having fun! Today I have a new layout up on the Echo Park Paper Blog featuring the I Love Summer collection.
My daughter was born in the summer which is perfect for her sunny personality! I placed the “Hello Sunshine” Ephemera die cut at the top of the page because it is the perfect reflection of the fun person she is.
Besides hanging out with friends, my daughter LOVES to go to the pool to swim anytime she possibly can. I decided to use my electronic die cutting machine to cut this series of open circles to mimic bubbles. I treated each bubble, or circle, with 6×6 papers and embellishments.
This circle at the top featured a couple of chipboard pieces from the Chipboard Accents pack, as well as a glittering, pink, rhinestone brad.
I used the Ride the Wave embossing folder to emboss the Lt. Blue solid background of this circle for a few fish to hang out in.
This last circle features a cheerful, toucan with a seashell background and another pink, gem brad.
I used an Echo Park design from the Silhouette Design Store and letter stamps from my stash to build my title. The file I used is called the “Fun in the Sun” phrase (Design #186889).
I loved the striking contrast of the navy blue in this collection and decided to finish this page by capping off the top and bottom with strips of the gingham Summer Floral paper. The result is a happy, summery page that I can’t wait to add to our family album!
