Echo Park Paper: Fun in the Sun

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!

Echo Park Paper: Lost in Neverland Card Set

Faith, trust, and pixie dust! Set out on a card making adventure with the Lost In Neverland collection!  I sat at my desk to play with this collection and couldn’t stop. I have six “Darling” cards to share with you today.

Tinkerbell, herself, is here to take you on your magical journey! I cut her out using the Tinkerbell die set with shimmer cardstocks by Carta Bella Paper. I doubled up her vellum wings to allow her to flutter about.

The Peter Pan Ephemera tag is captain of the Jolly Roger on this card. Just use your imagination and think happy thoughts and you will be on your way to dreamland!

For this card I created a waterfall of circles with a scene. I love how you can almost follow the story line as you follow each picture from top to bottom.

I anchored the Lost Boy sticker, along with the teepee, on a series of concentric punched circles for a simple, yet striking design. A sprinkling of enamel dots adds dimension and shine.

I used the Hello Baby Boy Shining Stars embossing folder to emboss a night sky on Navy Shimmer cardstock for the background of this card. I love how the Darling children are holding hands as they experience pixie dust for the first time. A tiny, chipboard Tinkerbell provides a never-ending supply of fun.

Stacked, die cut rectangles anchor the characters on this fun card. How cute is Sleeping Nana drifting in the top left corner?!

Carta Bella: Bloom & Grow

The Carta Bella Paper Flower Market collection is not only perfect for your Spring memories, but it is great for recording the growth and milestones your family experiences, as well.

Today I am up on the Echo Park Paper Blog sharing a layout about my daughter and one of her first experiences singing a solo in front of a large auditorium filled with people. It was something she had always wanted to do, and was definitely a blooming moment for her!

I used the 3×4 Journaling Cards paper with its soft pink color for the background of this page. Before I began adhering photos or anything else, I used a scraper tool to add gesso in a large circle in the center of the page. On top of that I used texture paste and the Market Dot 6×6 Stencil to add a subtle, dimensional pattern. You can catch a glimpse of the texture if you look closely at the right side of the photo below.

I fussy-cut the smaller floral from the Border Strips paper to hug the corner of my photos. I die cut the Lovely Branches using Evergreen Shimmer Cardstock to add to the flower cluster and fill it out a bit more. I love how much dimension the die cuts add!

Next, I stamped my title in dark green ink using the Echo Park Animal Safari Alphabet Stamp Set. I die cut an Ampersand using the dark pink polka dot paper from the 6×6 Paper Pad. Another fussy-cut flower from the 2×2 Squares paper accents the title.

To tie everything together I added cream enamel dots and heart stickers (Element Sticker) in a few spots around the page.

Design Tip: When writing journaling on top of gesso, be sure to test your pen first in an inconspicuous area or adhere typed journaling strips. I learned that the hard way on this page. *Sigh* I wish it looked better, but decided to just roll with it.

The best part of making this layout was adding the textured details with the stencil, die cut leaves, and enamel dots. I loved making this page!

Close to My Heart: Every Day

Hello! I’ve been playing with the February 2019 Craft with Heart subscription kit by Close to My Heart this past week. (Click HERE to go to the Close to My Heart webpage for more information about the Craft with Heart kits.)

Each kit includes the pieces to create two double-page layouts; however, for this page, I am going to adjust one of the layouts and convert it into a single page layout.

Watch the video below to see what I did! Then, stop by again tomorrow when I will be sharing the second layout I create using the kit.

EVERY DAY
