Echo Park Celebrate Christmas Paper Crates

Hello everyone- Tya here, and I am up on the blog today sharing my project featuring the charming Celebrate Christmas collection. I love making little treat holders for people during the holidays! These cute little paper crates were a breeze to whip up and took no time at all for me to decorate and  fill. I plan on keeping a few of these on hand during the busy holiday season for all of those last minute gifts that seem to happen.
To make these holders I used my trusty Silhouette to cut these out. I  used this file to make the crates. I wanted them to be really sturdy so I  first cut them out using some Kraft cardstock and then I cut them out again using the Holly Jolly paper. I trimmed off the front, back and side panels and glued the pattern paper to the kraft paper.  I had a lot of fun decorating the fronts of the crates with various embellishments. Here are a few close ups of the crates:

I appreciate you all stopping by today! I hope these fun little holders get you in the festive mood ready for the gift giving season.  These would be great for teacher, friend or  co-worker gifts. Stop by and check out this entire collection! It's amazing! Happy Crafting!

Deck the Halls card | Carta Bella Christmas collection

Hello everyone - it's Tya up on the blog today sharing a holiday card that I made using the stunning "Christmas" collection by Carta Bella. This line is so lovely and is totally my type of line. I  love all the rustic elements in this collection. It made making this card so fun.
I used a few different products to make my card. I loved the Jolly Snowflakes embossing folder so  I made sure that I used it on one of my background papers. (photo 3)
I like to add a few different embellishment clusters on my cards so I used some chipboard, ephemera and stickers to decorate my card front. I also added some extra texture with a sprig of pine needles that are from the Jolly Branch Trio die set.
 I added a bow made from some tan jute to the  top of my tag. I  also added a few enamel dots  in the corners. I love how the dots add a little shine and variety to my card.

I appreciate you all stopping by today. This Christmas line makes me want to make many more handmade cards to give out to my loved ones during the holidays. The collection is chock full of so many wonderful elements I am excited to use! Thanks and Happy Crafting!

Merry and Bright Layout | Echo Park

Hello there! It's Tya up on the blog today with a fun and festive layout featuring the Merry and  Bright collection.

How pretty is this collection? I love the soft blue they added and some of the pieces have some  beautiful gold foil on them as well. Such a stunning collection!
 I like to add pattern paper to my layouts in new and interesting ways so for this layout I decided to add pieces of Holiday Plaid paper cut on angles and placed on the 2 corners of the layout. I like how it frames the photos in the center and draws your eyes there.
I used lots of chipboard and ephemera on this layout. I like dimension and these are fun to layer on the layout with foam tape and dots. Here are a few more close ups of the layout:

I really enjoyed working with this layout and look forward to making  a few cards, tags and other paper crafts with this collection. It is both whimiscal and classic looking at the same time and I love collections that offer that look. Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Holiday crafting!
