Echo Park Bewtiched Layout

 Hi there Echo Park fans!  I am happy to be sharing with you a scrapbook layout featuring the fantastic Bewitched line! I simply love Halloween and this collection is perfect for creating pages showcasing your little witches!

I have always loved these photos of my youngest daughter when she was dressed up as this sassy little witch in her purple striped socks and feathery witch hat. I loved the purple in this collection! I adore the Wicked Witches paper so I  used that as my background. I cut out a funky star wreath from some black cardstock using my Silhouette and then backed the wreath with some white cardstock and started building my layout from there.  Here are some close ups of the page:
I like to make embellishment clusters when I decorate my pages and so I chose some flowers, a candy jar, a  jack o lantern and a small piece of candy and  layered them with foam tape. 
The 3x4 cards are some of my favorite items to use and this card fit in so great with the theme of the page.  I some foam tape behind a cauldron sticker and popped it up on the card. I mounted the card on some black cardstock. I also used the purple side of the Trick or Treat paper and cut the Happy Halloween title out from the Happy Halloween die set.
I like continuity on my pages so I copied the same sticker layering technique over on the right side of the page as well.
All around the black star wreath I added some star stickers for little pops of color. I really like how it added  a little touch of something extra to the wreath so I stands out a little more from the background paper.

Thanks a bunch for  stopping by the blog today. I was such a treat to work with this collection and I know you will just love every bit of it as well. Happy Crafting!

Treat Bags - Echo Park Hocus Pocus Collection

Hey there Echo Park fans!  I am sharing some quick and easy treat holders featuring the adorable Hocus Pocus line! These sincerely came together so quickly. I can't wait to share with you how to make them!
To make these fun packages, I started with a piece of Ebony Black Felt Cardstock that measures 3 x 8 1/2. I scored the papers on the 8 1/2 inch side at 3/4, 4 1/2  and 5 inches. I took a small stapler and stapled the bottom edge right toward bottom to make sure the fold stayed in place. I then decorated each holder with various papers and stickers from the collection and then added a little snack size bag of treats to the inside. Treats that can lay flat like shown below work best for this project.

Here are some close ups:

Can you imagine how fun these would be for co-workers or classroom treats? They are easy enough even your little ones can help put these together! I hope I have inspired you to make a batch of these with this cute collection. The colors and icons are so, so fun! Thank you for stopping by today! Happy Crafting!

Fall Break Card | Carta Bella

Hello there - I'm on the blog today sharing a handmade card with you all today. I really loved working with the beautiful Fall Break line by Carta Bella. It is classic and the icons are so stunning! This line definitely had me longing for cooler temperatures and big cozy sweaters! I love Fall!
The orange plaid paper from the Fall Break 6x6 paper pad was the perfect background to build my card on. I LOVED the cute scarecrow that is found on the Journaling Card paper and wanted him to take center stage on my card. I layered him on a leaf paper from the 6x6 pad and mounted that to the card base.
I built up a little fall scene along the bottom edge of the card using some die cut leaves, stickers and chipboard pieces. I  added foam tape between the layers for some added dimension. I wrapped a piece of jute around the bottom edge and tied a small bow on the left side of the card.
On the top of the card I added a tab die cut from the Ephemera pack and then some enamel dots for shine. 
It was a lot of fun making this card using all of the fall themed products. I hope I have inspired you  to make a few cards of  your own with the Fall Break line! A card made with it will surely make any one's Fall day! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

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!
