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!
Today is my turn on the Noel Mignon blog and I have another page for you using the August Vintage Charm Classic Kit. This week the design team is working on a challenge called the “Our House” challenge. For this challenge, we needed to use a house icon on our project, create a page about our home, or create a home decor item. I chose to add a house icon to my page!
GRATEFUL & BLESSED
For this page, I focused on using the Simple Stories Bloom & Grow papers included in the Noel Mignon Vintage Charm Classic Kit. I love the primary colors combined with the lace flowers and kraft butterflies (Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit). So warm and welcoming, don’t you think?!
I used a length of red ribbon from my stash to anchor the flowers and title across the center of the page, in between the two photos.
The gold glittery thickers are from the Classic Kit. I combined them with a couple of wood word embellishments I bought from the dollar bins at Michael’s. I painted them with a warm gold acrylic paint and then brushed the Heidi Swapp Gold Color Shine on top for a bit of shimmer.
The ampersand was cut using my Silhouette Cameo using a cut file by Echo Park Paper (Silhouette Shape #122732). I used the patterned side of one of the Simple Stories journal cards included in the Vintage Charm Daily Diary Kit. The little house icon was cut from one of the WRMK journal cards. The gold phrase stickers and kraft butterflies are also from the Vintage Charm Daily Diary kit. (I love mixing the two kits together!)

Hello Paper Crafters! I don’t know how Echo Park
knew it, but I have been itching to go to the Happiest Place on Earth lately. I may not be able to make it there any time soon, but I can definitely bring the magic into my home by playing with the adorable Magical Adventure collection
One of our favorite things about Disneyland is all of the delicious treats available. I especially love walking around the park at night … and there has always been something friendly about the glow of the popcorn carts.
I thought this would make a fun treat box to give to a friend. It would also make a really fun treat to hand out at a Summer Movie Night, too! You could even pair it with a showing of your favorite Disney film!
I decorated each of the windows with the banner sticker for a party atmosphere. On the front panel I layered together several stickers, including a ticket and the balloons. I stuck a toothpick in the top of the cart with one of the banner stickers matted on the black cardstock. So cute!
If you are dropping this off to a friend, be sure to create a quick enclosure card with a sweet note written inside. You are sure to brighten their day!
Last summer we went on a family vacation to the Outer Banks in North Carolina. It was soooo beautiful. I loved the relaxed pace of life and the opportunity to unplug and unwind. I sure hope we make it back there again someday.
You can be sure that since that trip, I have stocked up on all kinds of nautical-themed scrapbook supplies to document that trip. Today, I’m using the Carta Bella Paper Yacht Club collection to scrap these photos of our visit to a lighthouse.
Oh, my goodness … have I mentioned how much I love the texture of Carta Bella patterned papers?! That felt cardstock is so luxurious! And in case you didn’t know … they are starting to sell it in solid cardstock packs (Squeal!). The Ultra White felt is a MUST-HAVE! (Check out all the colors available HERE on the Carta Bella Paper website.)
Everything here is from the Yacht Club collection, with the exception of a scrap of woodgrain paper that I used to cut the title and little anchor next to the “Beach” sticker.
I had so much fun layering all kinds of elements around my focal point photo. There are always so many cute elements to choose from in the collections by Echo Park and Carta Bella. LOVE them!
I cut the title out on my Silhouette Cameo machine using a free cut file by Juliana Michaels (thanks, Juliana!). You can find this free cut file HERE on Juliana’s website.
The smaller photos on my page aren’t left out … they get a bit of embellishing, to
