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!
