Echo Park Guest Blogger Project

Hey there everyone and thanks for stopping by today. I'm super excited to be a guest blogger on the Echo Park blog today. For my project I did a little altering of a gift bag. Yes some of the Christmas bags that you can buy are cute....however why not spruce it up yourself and make it one of a kind!!!!

I simply love the way this turned out and now I don't want to give it to anyone :) So on this gift bag I used the super fun Everybody Loves Christmas line. This is one of my favorites from Echo Park. The colors totally rock, love the super cute design of all the papers. There are so many things you can cut out and pop up on your projects, not to mention the cover sheet that comes in the paper kit. You can totally use every piece of it as well. I used part of it on the upper right of my project...that is where I cut the Merry Christmas from. Other supplies used on this project: Xyron adhesive, Ranger Stickles, Kreaxions Circle Cutter, & Tim Holtz die.

Thanks for stopping and I hope you have a fabulous day!

Well I thought since tags are all around right now, I thought I would give it a shot. I look at Tim Holtz tags and think...OMG I could never make anything this cool!!! He can totally rock some Holiday tags. So with that in mind I went for it anyway. I had a blast making this tag and may have to try another one here soon. Here is the tag I created last night.

So what did I use on this tag....everything on this tag you can pick up at The Scrapbooking Studio. First obviously a manilla tag, Distress Ink: Stormy Sky & Brushed Corduroy (don't forget the blending tool) , Cuttlebug embossing folder, October Afternoon letters (black), Pearls, Teresa Collins blingage, Tim Holtz Mini Holidays 2 stamp set & embellies. The beads on the top are just misc beads I had.

Snowflake Centerpiece

Hey there everyone, happy Monday to you all!!! Well last week we had our first snowfall of the season,(yuck) and today it's SUPER cold!!! I think it is 15 below zero right now!!! I'm not ready for this!

Well today i'm showing you one of DT projects for AWDML. I made a centerpiece for fall and liked the way it turned out so I made one for winter.

On this centerpiece I used BoBunny paper Midnight Frost, Kaiser Craft pearls which I placed in the center of the snowflakes. The base of the centerpiece is a 10" green floral wreath. The snowflakes were cut out using the cricut. This works perfectly because you can cut so many different sizes and makes it really easy to layer.

Mixing Photos with The Girl's Paperie

Hey there everyone, have you ever mixed pictures on your layouts before. I'm talking about putting a very old photo with a newer photo. That is what I did on my layout for today. I love this line by The Girl's Paperie On Holiday. The fun die cuts totally rock with this line!! When I was sitting down to create this layout, to me this line symbolized the journey I had with my grandpa. That is also why I thought it was perfect to incorporate a older photo with one of the last photos of the two of us together. The title could not be more PERFECT! This layout is also my challenge to your over at Sketches4All as Decembers scraplift challenge.

I also created a card using this line. Sometimes when I make cards, I LOVE to have things going over the edges of the card.

Well don't forget all of The Girl's Paperie is on sale this month at A Walk Down Memory Lane.

Thanks for stopping and have a fabulous day!
