Echo Park Paper: A Mother’s Hug Card

I don’t know a woman on earth that wouldn’t love to receive a beautiful, handmade card from someone letting her know just how much they are appreciated. Today I have a card to share with you using the Echo Park Paper I Am Mom collection.

The color scheme of this collection makes me so happy! I couldn’t wait to use it to create a bouquet of paper flowers with the Flowers Bloom Die Set for the bottom of this card.

The 3×4 Journaling Cards paper includes so many phrases that would be fun to feature on a card. For this one, I chose to use the one that says, “A Mother’s Hug Lasts Long After She Lets Go.”

I used a combination of the Coordinating Solid papers and the 6×6 paper pad to give these die cut flowers lots of depth and dimension. The black enamel dot flower centers really make them POP!

Carta Bella Paper: Door Gift Bag & Card

Have you tried creating a customized gift bag and card? Today I am sharing a set using the beautiful Spring Market collection by Carta Bella Paper.

The colors and florals in this collection are so beautiful and would be perfect to use for all kinds of springtime occasions. I thought it would be fun to customize a gift bag for Mother’s Day for your mom, sister, or bestie. But it would also be perfect to use for a wedding or baby shower, or even a birthday gift!

All of the flowers and garden tools reminded me of getting outside. One of the first things I like to do in the Spring, is to hang a fresh wreath on my front door and decorate the front porch with pots of flowers. I used my Silhouette Cameo to die cut the door from Kraft Cardstock, and then created a wreath from the Evergreen Shimmer cardstock using the Spring Greenery Die Set.

A watering can, flowers, and more die cut greenery decorate the steps of the porch on this gift bag!

I couldn’t stop there! I couldn’t resist cutting out one of the darling tags from the Floral Tags paper to add to the top of the gift bag.

It’s fun to create a coordinating card to go along with your decorated gift bag. I cut a quote from one of the 6×6 pattern papers and added it to the die cut frame.

A flower pot die cut and more greenery ties it all back to the gift bag for a coordinated look!

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!
