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 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!
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!

Carta Bella Paper: Toy Box Backpack Activity Set

Keep your little one entertained with this fun activity set! I created a paper backpack with the Carta Bella Toy Box Collection filled with notepads and crayons that I think would make the perfect gift for a toddler. There is even enough room in the backpack to add a snack!

I cut the base of the backpack from the Magic Toy Room paper with it’s darling blue plaid pattern. On the flap I added a decorative panel with the toy guns, and then created a tag to hang on the handle.

The tag was created with the Rounded Tag Die Set. I added the chipboard plane, and a word sticker from the Elements Sticker Sheet. Sparkly, gem decorative brads hold the handle in place.

The front of the backpack has a yellow polka dot pocket that is decorated with all kinds of fun toys from the Chipboard and Element Sticker sheets.

Inside, your toddler will find a pack of crayons and a few notebooks. I think it would be fun to add some fish crackers or a few chocolate chip cookies in there, too!

Scrapbook Pages: Using Lots of Texture

On today’s page I had fun using lots of dimension and texture. I used the Crate Paper Cool Kid collection combined with more papers and embellishments from my stash.


This page started with the two smaller photos on the right. I didn’t have gobs of journaling, but the fun nature of these photos made me want to do something spunky in the big empty space to the left … so I decided to get a little artsy and create a trio of pie chart shapes.

The orange and yellow triangles are cut from the Cool Kid papers. I then mixed in some arrow paper (My Mind’s Eye) and plain teal cardstock embossed with a Teresa Collins Ebosser embossing folder.

I added the dimensional embellishments on top of the pie wedges (these are Candy Buttons from the BasicGrey Spice Market collection from several years ago). I also added in some dome gem stickers (Adornit) for some sparkle.

The title was created with a cut file by Lori Whitlock from the Silhouette Design Store. I cut it out twice, trimmed out every other letter and popped them up to give it more dimension. I also outlined the letters with a black journaling pen and added a shadow layer.

The arrow is by Echo Park Paper, and can also be found in the Silhouette Design Store (Design #44512). I outlined it and then colored it in with a yellow Bic permanent marker for a doodle-y feel.

Finally, I added some stamping using the Stampin’ Up Playful Backgrounds and Gorgeous Grunge stamp sets and a little bit of spray ink.
