Echo Park Bewitched Card

Hello everyone! It's Tya, and  it's my turn up on the blog today to share with a handmade card with you featuring the wonderful Bewitched line. This is such a fun and feminine collection! I loved all the pretty pops of purple in this line. This card came together so quickly and I kind of love it!

To start with ,  I made a 5x5 inch card base from some Ebony Black Cardstock. I cut a piece of the polka dot side of the Hocus Pocus Potions paper and layered that on the card base. I cut the witch in the moon card from the 4x4 Journaling Card paper. I  backed the card with a slightly larger piece of Trouble Brewing paper. Here are a few close ups of the elements of the card:
I love this little black kitty in a pumpkin! Isn't he so cute? I added him along with a floral sticker to the bottom left of the card.

This adorable witch from the Sticker Sheet was just my favorite so I added her on a piece of Phantom Pumpkins paper that I cut out from one of the circles in the Nesting Stitched Circles Die cut. I added some foam tape behind the circle and added her to the center of the card. I then added the "It's Witching Hour" banner sticker to the bottom of the circle
On the left side I added another little sticker cluster. I used a potion bottle, a stack of books and another one of the floral stickers. These are tucked underneath the stitched circles die cut.

Thank you for taking a peek at my card today. I love Halloween and can't wait to use more of the Bewitched collection on more projects.  Happy Crafting!

Echo Park Celebrate Autumn Layout

Hi everyone! Tya here, and I am sharing  a sweet Autumn themed layout today featuring the amazing  Celebrate Autumn line! I am seriously crushing hard on all the fun elements in this collection and I had a such a fun time creating this layout showcasing a this sweet photo of my adorable nephews playing in the leaves.

I loved the burlap paper and decided  to use that as my  main background paper, and the leaves on the Autumn Acorn paper were the perfect touch to highlight the leaves in the photo. Here are a few close ups of the page designs:
 The Fall sticker was popped up with some foam tape for dimension. I also added  some die cut leaves under the title.
 How cute is this little fox. He is from the Chipboard Accents. Fall Days are Fun Days title is from the Frames and Tags Ephemera.
On top of the photo is a trio of tags from the Frames and Tags Ephemera. I added a rhinestone brad to  one of the tags for some added bling.

Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope this fun little layout has gotten you excited for all things fall and to scoop up this line and create some fall fun layouts of your own! Happy  Crafting!

Summer Splash Gift Bag - Carta Bella

Hi there everyone! I'm up on the blog today sharing with you a sweet little gift bag that I made using the wonderful Summer Splash collection! I just want to go swimming at a beach or a pool now after playing with this fun set! 
This gift bag would be a really fun gift bag or favor bag for a pool party, someone leaving on a beach vacation would love this or for a party favor. The options are endless with this cute theme!

To make my bag I used a bag die cut and cut it out on my Silhouette. I loved the little palm trees on the Flamingo Fun paper so that is what I chose for my bag. To decorate the bag I used a pink doily to build a scene on.I cut out a circle using the Stitched Circle die cut from the Seaside paper from the 6x6 paper pad.  I layered some stickers from the Element Sticker sheet, and some chipboard accents from the Chipboard Phrases sheet. I added a few enamel dots from the Summer Splash Enamel Dots for some shine.
To finish off the bag I added a double bow to one of the handles from some lovely pink ribbon and a yellow button with  some white crochet thread in the center. I love the pops of pink in this collection.
I'm so glad you stopped by the blog today! I hope I have inspired you to whip up a few of these fun bags for your next Summer Splash Bash! Happy Crafting!

Back to School Card | Echo Park

Hi there! It's Tya up on the blog today sharing a fun handmade card featuring the awesome "Back to School" collection. I loved working with this fun collection especially because I really love all the fun back to school supplies that come out lol! The collection is filled with fun school themed papers and icons that made making this card super fun.
I thought it would be fun to turn one of the 3x4 cards into a flash card. I simply rounded the corners  on the addition 3x4 card and  made a fun pocket element to tuck the cards into. I added another 3x4 card and tucked it behind the flash card.
 I really liked these banners - they looked  great up in this corner surrounded by some enamel dots.
 On the bottom of the card I added a cluster of die cuts and stickers to  make a little scene. I  added  a piece of  black twine around the pocket as well.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today and taking a peek at this fun card. I hope I have inspired you to  pick up this amazing collection and make some fun cards to give to your favorite student or teacher.  They will love it! Happy Crafting!

Passport Card - Carta Bella paper

Hello everyone!I am sharing a card I made using the awesome Passport line by Carta Bella! Boy does this collection make me want to pack a bag a go somewhere fun! I loved the icons in this line! Here are a few close ups of the card:

I always like to check out what is on the 4x6 cards to use for possible card backgrounds - I loved the postcard card and so I trimmed it down and placed it on my card front. It's always fun to use the journaling cards for things other than journaling and the 4x6 size is perfect for cards. And isn't that flight attendant awesome!  I  loved the "explore" sticker sentiment as well, so it is front and center on my card.

I layered some of the pieces on a stack of suitcases sticker. I made a border from one of the border strip papers in the 6x6 paper pad. I really liked the pop of black along the bottom edge.
Thank you for stopping by the blog today. I encourage you to check out this amazing collection! The Passport collection will fit all of your travel picture memory keeping needs! I can't wait to use this collection again! Happy Crafting!

Mermaid Tales Gift Bags - Echo Park

Hello !I am up on the blog today sharing with you some cute and easy gift bags featuring the lovely Mermaid Tales Collection.

To make my bags, I started with some glassine bags that are approximately 5x7 inches. I used a piece of Mermaid Paradise as a belly band and glued to the center of the bag. I then chose a few of my favorite 3x4 cards and stickers created a few little scenes for the front of the bags. I die cut a few scallop circles from our Stitched Scallop Nesting Dies and tucked them here and there on the cards. I also die cut a 3D bow from the Mini 3D Bow die from some of the Magical Mermaids paper. I glued the bows to a mini white clothespin and  then added a white button and some pink twine. I sprinkled a few iridescent gems on the cards as well.  Here are a few close ups:

These fun little bags would be perfect to add a small gift or gift card. They would also make great Mermaid party favors as well. This collection was SOO much fun to work with - there are so many fun elements to this collection. I hope I have inspired you to pick this one up today! Happy Crafting!

Just Married Card

Hello everyone! I am sharing a card I made using the lovely Just Married collection. I LOVE the beautiful navy blues in this collection - aren't they stunning?
This old fashioned car with the 'Just Married" banner was the center element of my card.  I added the car sticker to the card with some foam tape for some dimension. I tucked a floral sticker behind it for some added pop of color. I added some blue enamel dots as well.
The pattern paper  strip that I used on the left side has the most beautiful gold foil on it and I echoed the gold shimmer with some gold shimmer paint splatters on the off white paper. The scallop pink bow added a fun touch as well to this festive card. I tied a tag with a flower embellishment and one more blue enamel dot for good measure to finish off the card.
Thank you very much for stopping by the blog today! With wedding season quickly approaching, I hope I have inspired you with this card to give a little handmade card to the special couple. Happy Crafting !

Have Faith Frame - Echo Park Paper

Hello Echo Park fans - it's Tya up on the blog today sharing a home decor project featuring the Have Faith collection. Are the colors stunning?
I loved this ornate frame and when I saw that the collection contained one of my favorite verse of  scripture, I knew I had to make the verse the star of the project.
To make the background of the frame, I trimmed a 5x7 inch piece of the pink stripe side of the 4x4 Journaling  Cards paper. I then used  a 4 x 5 inch piece of the blue flower side of the 4x6 Journaling Cards paper and glued it to the center of the pink stripe paper. I then took a 1 inch strip of the Yellow paper from the Teal/Yellow Coordinating Solids paper and used a scallop border punch to make a scallop border and placed in on the top and bottom of the blue flower paper. I then cut out the "Be Still and Know" 4x6 card and trimmed it down just a bit so it fit the frame nicely and then added some foam tape to the back for some dimension.
Along the bottom edge I layered a banner die cut shape behind a flower sticker.  I added the "love" die cut shape to the flower sticker with some foam tape and then a few enamel dots as well. I  added this cluster to the outside of the frame.
Along  the top edge I added  some black twine and glued a few banner stickers to the twine. I  added a pretty blue butterfly sticker to the center banner piece and then some foam tape behind the center piece so it wouldn't flop too much.
I am so excited to have this frame as part of my home decor. I hope I have inspired you to use this beautiful collection to showcase your favorite verse as well. Happy Crafting!
