Echo Park Paper: Cruisin’ for a Summer Treat

I am always so inspired by the colors and icons of Echo Park Paper collections. When I saw the Summer Dreams collection for the first time, I just knew I had to make something that would incorporate all of the darling popsicles, ice cream cones, and snow cones. So an ice cream truck gift box it was!

I used my Sihouette Cameo machine to cut out the ice cream truck cut file by SVGCuts.com. I used the Solid Pink paper for the base, and then cut the decorative panels from the Say Cheese, Sweet As Summer, and Summer Vacation papers. I used the Solid Navy/Yellow paper for the wheels and trim pieces.

The window pieces were cut from vellum and then embossed with the Sunny Dots Embossing Folder for a bit of texture.
I added the speech bubble stickers to the front window, so that it appears like the people inside the ice cream truck are having a fun little conversation.

The back of the truck opens up so that you can place a fun treat inside for the recipient. I think this would be a really fun way to wish your child’s teacher (or anyone else) a Happy Summer Break!

The most fun part of projects like this, for me at least, is the embellishing! I added the chipboard “FUN” letters to the awning along with some shiny decorative brads and enamel dots.

It looks like you can walk right up to that window and order one of those delicious ice cream treats, doesn’t it?! The flamingo is there to greet you and take your order.

The other side of the box doesn’t get left out … I decorated it with the reader board sticker, and more chipboard pieces, stickers, brads, and enamel dots. I even added the small chipboard discs (decorative brads) and enamel dots to the wheels. You can never how too much pattern and texture on a fun project like this!
I even created a couple of pinwheels to go with it using the darling Sunny Pinwheel Die Set and the 6×6 papers and decorative brads.

Does this project get you excited for summer?! I am definitely ready to don my flip flops and grab a yummy, frozen treat!

Echo Park Paper: I Love Being Your Mom Layout

I’m going to begin today’s post with a little story. My grandmother passed away a few years ago and as my mom and her sister were looking through their family photo albums, my mom’s sister said something to the effect of, “Why wasn’t mom at any of our family events?!” My mom replied with, “She was. She was always the one taking the pictures!”
Since hearing that story, I have tried to be better about handing the camera over to someone else so that *I* can be included in our family photos. I definitely don’t want my kids to look back on our memory albums and think I never came to anything! LOL!
I LOVE BEING YOUR MOM
Today’s page features a recent photo of me with all four of my children. My daughter went off to college this past year, and so I recognize that the opportunities to grab a shot like this are becoming more rare … so at our Easter dinner this year, I made a point to pull my family aside and have someone snap a few pictures of us together. I’m so glad I did!

I used the Summer Fun collection for this page. I couldn’t wait to take my scissors and fussy-cut the large florals of the Summer Floral Paper.

I used the florals to frame the photo, and then added a bit of lift to everything by adhering the photo and the floral pieces on top of a large piece of craft foam.

In the top right corner I added a stamped label with the season and date. I embellished the label with one of the chipboard circles from the Decorative Brads, adhering it to a large black button.

I used both my manual and electronic die cutting machines to create the title for this page. The large heart was cut using the Heart Label Die set. I layered a punched heart on top for added interest.
I cut the word “MOM” from coordinating solid papers using my Silhouette Cameo machine.

I wanted to add a bit of pizazz to the “MOM” word, so I added another fussy-cut flower, the palm leaves from the Enamel Shapes sticker set, and a black and white button tied with white crochet twine.
I’m so happy I have this photo of me with my children, and I definitely feel lucky to be their mom. They are my pride and joy!
If you haven’t taken a photo recently of you with your children, or a photo with your mom. Make sure to do it soon and then create a page with it! You will be so glad that you did. It will definitely become something you will treasure!

Stampin’ Up: Eastern Palace Suite

Stampin’ Up has a new suite of products available called Eastern Palace, and from May 1st through 31st you can purchase them in two great bundles; a Starter Bundle and the Premiere Bundle.

Stampin’ Up was kind enough to send me a Premiere Bundle to play with. Here is a peek at what is included.

I’m loving the rich colors and patterns and found them perfect for a couple of masculine layouts I wanted to create about my son. I thought I would share those with you today!

BRACES

I had so much fun using the papers stamps and dies on this page!

My favorite part of creating this layout was definitely working on this panel of accents. I used the dies and stamps to create multiple medallions and then arranged them in a diamond pattern above my title. I used foam squares to pop up the embellishments for lots of dimension and then added a few pearls from my stash to accent the center of each one.

The title was created with another set by Stampin’ Up called Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set. I used the Lemon Lime Twist and Tranquil Tide inks to create the letters.

I also added a few leafy branches from the Crazy About You Stamp Set. I used the Fresh Fig and Lemon Lime Twist inks. The script words come from the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.

Here is one more angled look at the layout so you can see all of the delicious dimension on this one! 😀

OWEN’S BAPTISM DAY

For this second page, I cut the background paper in a classic artisan label shape.

I used the dies and stamps with the Tranquil Tide ink to create the medallion accents. I simply used a 3″ circle punch to punch around the circular die shape and then added them to my page.

I used the Layered Letters Alphabet Stamp Set again on this page to create my title. This time, I used the circular shape randomly behind the letters to add interest, and then cut around the title with a pair of fine-tipped scissors.

At the bottom right of my photos, I used the stamps and dies to create two more page accents. I loved layering the pieces up on one another using foam squares to give it lots of dimension, like I did on the previous page.

If you are always on the look out for papers with a rich or masculine feel to them, this may very well be the set for you! I think it would be perfect to use for Father’s Day projects, or even something for a wedding! Be sure to check it out!

Happy Creating!

Queen & Co: BYU BASKET

Roses are Red, Posies are BLUE — Using a Single Color for All of Your Page Embellishments …

Last year when my daughter graduated from high school, her work put together a gift basket for her featuring the colors of the college she would be attending the next year. All the treats they included inside were blue and white. It was so cute, and really made her feel special and loved.
As I went to scrapbook this memory, I couldn’t help but use all kinds of BLUE Queen and Company embellishments on this page … and the main focus here are the adorable blue iridescent flowers!

I wanted the iridescent flowers to have a bit more presence so I layered them on top of blue punched flowers.

I also added green punched leaves using the Festive Flower Builder Punch by Stampin’ Up.

I gave the photo the “blue-treatment” by tying a blue/white baker’s twine bow around the bottom …

… and adding Blue Dot Glitter Tape to the top!

Another bit of Blue Dot Glitter Tape at the bottom of the page keeps your eye moving through the layout design.

Next time you create a page, see if there is one color you can pull out to use for all of your embellishments. It will help to tie your design together and create a cohesive look.
