Echo Park Paper: Once Upon a Time Prince collection

I pulled out my Echo Park Paper Once Upon a Time Prince collection to scrapbook a few pages the other day. This collection was released about a year ago, but is still available in stores. It was the perfect choice for the two photos I will be working with today!

PRINCE IN TRAINING

I wish I could take credit for the title on this page, but I pulled that clever phrase off of one of the elements in the collection. It was too cute NOT to use with this photo of my son attempting to dislodge the sword in the stone at Disneyland. ūüėÄ

If you are stumped as to what to do for your title, give it a try! Look through the elements in the collection for a phrase that would coordinate with YOUR photos. The designers of these collections spend a lot of time and effort coming up with the phrases, so you may as well take advantage of their hard work! ūüôā

My other tip is to try using a sketch to jump start your page design. For this page, I used one of Becky Fleck’s May 2018 sketches from PageMaps.com … however, I switched it up a bit by turning the sketch on it’s side and mirroring it (I used the sketch in the lower left corner of the PDF print out, if you’d like to see the original). Doing this allowed me to stretch outside of my comfort zone and put elements together in a way that is new to me!

I could have just stuck these arrows to the page … but somehow that little bit of stitching makes them feel “special.”

I had a lot of fun building the title for this page. I first began with the “PRINCE” word and then decided to add the flags above and below it. The flags are all stickers and die cuts from the collection. I did add other elements (chipboard pieces, letter stickers, and stickers) and strips of paper on top of several of them to make them more intreresting.

The curtain rod-looking element along the top row is from the Hero Banner Die Set. It wasn’t quite long enough, so I die cut two rods and then pieced them together behind one of the flags.

In the lower right corner of the photo, I placed a cute castle sticker, popped up with foam squares. I wanted a forest on either side of the castle, so I cut the tree sticker in half, placing one half tucked behind each side of the castle. You would never know that the tree sticker doesn’t run the full width of the castle!

The Once Upon a Time Prince collection was also perfect for this page of my daughter all dressed up to go to a Medieval Themed party several years ago.

I created the banner across the top of the page using pennant punches by American Crafts and papers from the Once Upon a Time Prince 6×6 Paper Pad. I stitched them across the top using my sewing machine and then added a few glossy, pennant pieces from the Enamel Shapes.

I cut the scroll from the 4×6 Journaling Cards paper to accent the left side of the photo, and then built a little cluster of elements below it from the 6×13 Chipboard Set.

Another cluster of chipboard elements (the castle, phrase, stars, and coat of arms) accents the bottom right corner of the photo.

At the bottom of the page, I layered together several strips of patterned paper to anchor the design. The bottom strip is punched with a postage stamp patterned border punch by Fiskars.

Carta Bella Paper: Exploring and Discovering the World with the Passport Collection

My daughter spent the past three months on a Study Abroad program with her university visiting England, France, and Italy. She had a blast! This was one of the first selfies she sent home and I just had to scrapbook it using the amazing Passport collection by Carta Bella Paper!

I layered a strip of the red and blue “Air Mail” striped Tourist Class Paper along with a border sticker across the top left and bottom right corners of the page. At the top I clustered together a few stickers and chipboard accents.

I cut out a few of the horizontal cards from the Journaling Cards paper and layered them behind my photo. I added a chipboard airplane to the top right corner of the photo along with a few die cut clouds created with the Spread Sunshine Die Set.

A couple of tags peek out on the left side of the photo!

I used two word stickers layered together to create the title for the page. To the left, I created a fun cluster using the globe and suitcase chipboard stickers.

The green London tag indicates the first city my daughter visited! I added the “Here” chipboard sticker to let the viewer know.

I have never been to Europe, but I hope to go someday. Have you?! Have you recorded your memories from that trip? Why not use the amazing Passport collection to get started?

Echo Park Paper: Let’s Be Mermaids Card

When I was a girl, I would spend hours upon hours during the summer splashing around in our hot tub pretending to be a mermaid. Those were magical, carefree days! Wouldn’t it be fun to steal your friends away and head out on a mermaid adventure for the day?
Let your bestie know that is exactly what you want to do with this card created with the Echo Park Paper¬†Mermaid Tales collection¬†… and then make some fun plans and actually DO it! Why not?!!! Find a reason to do it! *wink*

I had fun layering the patterns together and then creating a detailed cluster of sea flowers and sea horses on the left side of the¬†3×4 Journaling Card.

The mermaid on the right is the star and looks ready for a day of relaxation with her friends! Grab your friends and do something fun … even if it’s just relaxing in the backyard sunbathing with a cold drink and great conversation!

Echo Park Paper: Have Faith

I had so much fun creating this next scrapbook page using the darling Echo Park Paper Have Faith collection. Check it out below!

I pulled out the¬†Stitched Hearts Die Set¬†to create some fun embellishments for this page after being inspired by the cute quote on this tag sticker from the¬†Element Sticker Sheet¬†… “You Have Filled My Heart.”

The multiple strips of patterns of the Little Chapel paper had a quilt-feel about it, making it the perfect pairing with my stitched heart accents. I placed a wide band of the Little Chapel Paper across the center of the page and then built everything else on top of it, focusing the photos on the right side of the page, and placing the title and journaling on the left side.

I created the stitched hearts by die cutting them from the¬†Coral/Pink Solid paper¬†and then using white embroidery floss to straight stitch along the edges. I LOVE the¬†Stitched Heart Die Set! I can’t wait to use them again! They look so cute with the stitching placed in the holes … I can’t wait to try a whip stitch or a blanket stitch on them!

At the bottom of the page, I cut out the Letterboard 3×4 card from the¬†3×4 Journaling Cards paper¬†to use as a page accent. Isn’t it cute?! I layered the bike and a few label stickers from the¬†Element Sticker Sheet¬†across the bottom.
