Girl Wonder

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share using the America collection and Designer Dies!  Did you know that there are dies released with almost every new collection?   In addition to those, Echo Park has other dies that will coordinate with all your projects!

I often hear people say "I don't buy dies because I'm not a cardmaker".  What???  Who says dies are just for cards?  You can use them on literally any type of paper project!  

I used 2 sets of dies on my layout.  The first set I used is the Mckell Uppercase Alphabet.  It was just what I needed to complete my title! (These also come in a lowercase as well)

The next set of dies I used is the Stitched Star Nesting Die Set.   I love love love this set!  I created the whole background of my layout with this.  I love how the stars layer into each other!

Since I used a 4th of July themed collection for my Halloween layout, all the embellishments weren't appropriate for my layout.  (Plus I'm  So I fussy cut some words from the papers.

So you see everything goes in the world of scrapbooking.  Dies for layouts, 4th of July papers for Halloween layouts....anything is possible!

Thanks for stopping by!

That's my boy

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new  layout to sharefor Echo Park using the All boy collection.  This week I was asked to use an old Echo Park project as my inspiration.  I went way back on the blog and found this beauty by Ashley Horton!  Here is the link to the blog post.

I was inspired by the design, the squares and even the little clouds.  Here is what I came up with.

After I added my squares, I stitched them with my sewing machine.  I almost always stitch on my layouts, I just can't help it!

These little dinosaurs were just too cute, I just had to add them to my layout!  The colors in this collection were perfect for my photo!

I finished up my layout with little word stickers and these adorable puffy stars!

Easy Bake

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share using the Apron Strings collection.  This collection is soooo cute!  I seriously had a hard time choosing which papers to use!  It would also be a great collection to use for recipe cards or a cookbook!

I decided to use photos of my daughter playing with her easy bake oven.  I don't often use this many photos but I felt like they all needed to be there.  I kept the design pretty simple so it wouldn't be too busy.

The embellishments in this collection are the cutest ever!!  Just look at that little mixer and sugar bag!

I added some stitching on the strips of paper and around my layout just to add some more texture.

Thanks for stopping by!

Twinkle Twinkle

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new  layout to share for Echo Park using the Baby Boy collection.  This week we're putting our focus on stickers.  All of the Echo Park collections come with a sticker sheet, but most of the collections also have puffy stickers and my new favorite...the sticker book!

I started off by using an Echo Park cut file from the Silhouette Store.  It was such a sweet file and perfect for this collection. I added some pattern paper behind the words and stars.  I also cut out some extra stars from this cut file in various sizes to use as embellishments.

I embellished my layout using only paper and stickers.  31 stickers actually!  lol  I popped up most of them using foam squares to give them more dimension.  These sticker books are so fabulous.  You get so much for your money.  This one had 16 pages of stickers!

I hope you enjoyed my sticker feature layout!  Thanks for stopping by!

Hey Pumpkin'

Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Simple Stories using the Boo Crew collection.  Halloween is always a big deal at our house, we go all out with decorations and costumes.  This collection is just beautiful and with all these gorgeous orange papers I knew I wanted to scrap these photos of my sweet little pumpkin!

I picked out my favorite squares out of the 2x2 elements paper to create a grid style layout.  I also cut my photos the same size.  After I created my grid I ran all the squares through my sewing machine.

Grid style layouts come together pretty fast.  I added a big title on the top and a few bits and pieces on most of the squares.

I choose a pretty bold paper for my background.  I tend to always reach for white cardstock but I like how this makes it pop!

Thanks for stopping by!

Trick or Treat layout

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new  layout to share for Echo Park Paper using the I Love Halloween collection and a cut file from the Silhouette Store.  I found this cute spider web cut file from Echo Park in the Silhouette Store and I knew I had to use it for this layout!

Halloween layouts are so much fun.  We always go all out with the costumes at Halloween.  My daughter made the cutest little witch ever!  I backed the cut file with pattern papers from this collection.  Then I put it on a black background so it would stand out.  I also stitched the web to make it look more realistic.

I then just needed to add some embellishments.  I did a couple of clusters making sure I didn't hide the web too much.

How cute is my daughter with her little green face? lol

Fall Day layout

 Hey everyone, I'm here today with a new layout to share for Echo Park Paper using the Hello Autumn collection from Carta Bella.  We have such beautiful colors here in the fall.  I have so many photos of my kids playing in the leaves.  It's such a beautiful time of year!

I used a cut file from Paige Evans to create the background of my layout.  I backed all the leaves and acorns with beautiful papers from this collection.  I also added some paint splatters around the wreath.

I then added some stitching inside every leaf to make them stand out.  They turned out so pretty!

I didn't want to add too much to this layout because I didn't want to hide those pretty leaves.  I created a few embellishment clusters on the wreath and on my photos.

I'm usually a one photo per layout scrapper but I couldn't decide which one to use so I added both!

Thanks for stopping by!
