I Am Mom Collection - Echo Park - Tag Mini Album

Hello Echo Park fans! It's Tya up on the blog today.  Boy did I have fun making this little mini. I love little projects like this with a specific theme in mind! The I Am Mom collection was so fun to play with. I found a few of  my favorite pictures I have with my kiddos and celebrated the hardest yet most rewarding job I have ever had!

 This album was made using 3 x 5 inch tags as the base and  I did add some additional tags and other bits of Ephemera to the album as well. The mini was decorated with Ephemera, chipboard pieces, stickers, buttons, enamel dots and a few scallop circle die cuts as well.  Here are the close ups of each page:

Carta Bella Paper | Circus Party Set

Hi there! Hope you are all doing well! It's Tya up on the blog today sharing a fun party set with the adorable Circus collection. This collection is simply so fun! I loved all the circus themed colors and icons!  It made making this set so easy!

I chose to do 3 different party favors you could use for a circus themed party. First off is a gift bag. I found a small blue gift bag at the craft store. I cut out a square of yellow and white dot paper from the 6x6 paper pad for the background. I then made a medallion/badge accent on the card using some blue striped pattern paper from the 6x6 paper pad, some chipboard shapes, stickers and Ephemera. I mounted the medallion shape to the front of the bag with some foam tape. I added a few enamel dots as well. I finished the bag off with some blue bakers twine.
Next I made a popcorn box from a cut file that I cut out with my Silhouette. I used a 12x12 piece of Join the Circus paper to make the box. The box is decorated with a yellow banner shape cut from some solid yellow paper from the 6x6 paper pad. Then I added a chipboard clown and stars, some more Ephemera and enamel dots as well. I tied a bow on a bag of popcorn with more of the blue bakers twine.
The last favor I made were a couple of cupcake wrappers cut from the Greatest Show 12x12 paper and a cut file on my Silhouette. I  added some chipboard animals to a plastic stick and added a few word stickers, chipboard stars and enamel dots. I  also finished these off with more blue bakers twine.

If you have a circus themed party in mind this collection would be so fun to make favors like these ones to give to your party guests. I hope I have inspired you to create some of these fun projects for your next circus party. Thanks for stopping by - Happy crafting!

But First, Coffee card | Echo Park Paper Design Team Project

Hello there - it's Tya up on the blog today. Wow! What a cute collection this is! I had such a fun time making this fun little card that would be perfect to give to your favorite coffee lover.
The Element sticke sheet was where I got most of the accents for this card. i used the barrista, coffee cup, coffee heart , but first banner and the Coffee label are all stickers.The blue plaid frame is from the Frames and Tags Ephemera. Here are a few close ups:

 I always like to add a few different types of embellishments on my cards to add some finishing touches. I added 3 enamel dots in the upper left corner and I added some pink twine and a black brad to the edge of the blue frame.

How cute is that little barrista girl with her cups of coffee in each hand? Love her!
