Some Echo Park Projects :)

Hello! Happy Monday (groan!) We have about two more weeks before the kids go back to school. I am excited because I know that once they have more of a schedule, they will adjust to life here more quickly :)

Today, I have a few Echo Park projects to share in my attempt to be a Fresh Face Designer. The first is a scrapbook page of my two girls.
Photo Booth-You & Me

Cara and Lauren snuck

off to the photo booth

when we were in the arcade.

Although they are nine years apart,

they are

so much alike.

For this page, I used The Happy Days Collection of paper as well as the Happy Days chipboard accents and brads. I used my circle dies (Spellbinders) to cut circular shapes from some of the patterned paper. I added some stitching and some tiny pearl accents to add some interest to the layout.

Next, I have a few cards:
Hello Sweet Friend
I used a Happy Days element sticker (Ice cream cone) as the focus of this card. The hello friend is a SRM sticker. I added some rhinestones to the bottom of the ice cream dish and the sweet banner (Happy Days: Journaling card) tied to the top.
Supplies: white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Element sticker-Happy Days (Echo Park Paper); Patterned paper- Happy Days: Journaling card, Borders (Happy Days); rhinestones (Recollections); hemp; ribbon (Stampin' Up!); sentiment sticker- Sweet (SRM stickers).

Happy Snow Days

I went back to an old favorite collection, Wintertime, for this card. I paired the Wintertime stickers and patterned paper with some Happy Days patterned paper and a Happy Days decorative brad. I added some rhinestones to the snowflake and some machine stitching around the edge to finish it off.

Supplies: white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Patterned paper- Wintertime: Pine green (Echo Park Paper), Happy Days: Scalloped (Echo Park Paper); element stickers- Wintertime (Echo Park Paper); brad- Happy Days (Echo Park Paper); rhinestones (Recollections, Michael's); ribbon (May Arts); sewing machine.

Thinking of You

For this card I combined an element sticker from Little Boy with Splash patterned paper. I love the boat floating along on that journaling block. I used a SRM sticker for the sentiment and finished the card with a fun yellow ribbon.

Supplies: white cardstock (Gina K Designs); Designer paper- Splash: Journaling, Big Striped (Echo Park Paper); SRM sticker sentiment- Hello; Element sticker- Little Boy (Echo Park Paper); ribbon; corner rounder punch (Creative Memories); mini attacher- Tim Holtz.

Hope you have a great day!

Thanks for stopping by!

Great combo of products. That sb page is so sweet, that age difference can be a good thing it looks like. :)

Cammie, I love your projects! I was wondering if you'd let me re-post some of these projects on my blog. I am the artist that created the "Happy Days," "Wintertime," and "Splash" collections that you used for Echo Park. You can check out my site here: Thanks!
