Echo Park Paper Adventure Awaits Layout

 Hey there Echo Park fans- Tya here. I am such a sucker for a cute boy line so when I saw this cute collection called Adventure Awaits, I knew I had to make a layout featuring my favorite little boy. This collection is full of adorable icons and I love the color pallet so much! The navy and yellow just pop! I had so much fun with it.
My son loved the outdoors and was always full of energy and loved to go exploring. He would rather be outside than anywhere else! So I added lots of "adventure" titles and accents on my layout to reflect that characteristic. Here are some close ups of the emebellishments:
 I like using the Ephemera pieces as spots for my journaling. This large bracket die cut had some printing on the front, so I just flipped it over to the plain white side and added my typed journaling and decorations on there. I love that cute little boy on the chair ! He is a chipboard piece. I also added some twine, stickers and enamel dots for more decoration.
 The bottom section here is made by layering Ephemera, Chipboard and stickers.  I always like to add some enamel dots for some shine as well, so there are a few of those sprinkled on this seciton as well.
And  this tag just speaks for itself. My sweet boy :)

Thank you so very much for stopping by the blog today, If you have and adventurous little spirit in your house like I do, this collection is for you! Happy Crafting!

Let it Snow Card | Carta Bella

Hello all! It's Tya here! I'm up on the blog today sharing  a handmade card I made using the gorgeous Let it Snow collection by Carta Bella. The colors of this line have me swooning! I love all the deep tones and cute icons!

I love snowmen and have started collecting snow globes so when I saw the cute snowglobe sticker on the sticker sheet I used that as my focus and then used some ephemerea, chipboard, stickers and enamel dots to decorate this card. Here are a few close ups:

Celebrate Winter - Echo Park Paper

 Hello! It's Tya up on the blog today sharing a layout I created using the fabulous Celebrate Winter collection! Ok call me crazy! But I really love winter! Growing up in Utah (where we are known to have the Greatest Snow on Earth) has really spoiled me. My family loves to ski and snowboard and do all sorts of fun activities in the snow. I decided to make my layout about a snow tubing outing we had a few years back.  My sweet family all in their winter clothes and rosy cheeks just makes me smile.
I loved the mix of navy blue and red in this collection. I started with a navy cardstock background and then built my page up from there.
Here are a few close ups of the page elements:
For my circle border accent, I used some Ephemera and some of my circle punches in various sizes to punch out different pattern papers from the 6x6 paper pad. I liked the small scale of the designs on those papers and didn't want to make the circles to busy. I  added some snowflake stickers and chipboard pieces here and there. I also added a red brad in the center of the snowflake.
 I created a tag cut from the Linen Coordinating solid paper and added my journaling  to the tag. I added another brad and some blue bakers twine at the bottom. The Winertime title is from the Frames and Tags Ephemera added to the top of the tag with some foam tape. I also added the cute chipboard snowman and a little birdie sticker to decorate the bottom left edge.
The right side is more of the circle punched papers along with another snowflake sticker and a tree sticker  as well. I love adding tabs to the tops of my photos for some added interest as well.

I had so much fun working with this adorable collection. I hope I have inspired you to pick this one up for yourselves so you can record all of your fun winter time memories! Happy Crafting!
