I love all the patterns on the paper because of how vibrant the colours are!
My favourite pattern in this collection is the kraft paper with the clouds! I just love the clouds!
I also love the hexagon paper. As soon as I saw this patterned paper in the collection I just knew I had to cut the pattern out.
Echo Park is probably one of my favourites because of the sticker sheets that they come out with! They are always so full of things and for a very good price. I have an obsession with alphabet stickers when I am scrapbooking. I have alphabet stickers in probably every single colour so when I saw these I fell in love.
Here is the first layout that I created. One of the hottest trends I have noticed in scrapbooking lately is the hexagon pattern. Every manufacturer has some paper in the lines that they create that has this look to it. This paper caught my eye as soon as I saw it!
While creating this layout I kept it very clean and simple! To add a little bit more detail I used the journaling words from Authentique to do my journaling. I have done this on a couple layouts and it takes forever to try to come up with your journaling but it looks amazing when you're finished. I popped up my journaling because I thought it would stand out a little bit more.
When finishing up this layout I used more pop dots (one of my favourite scrapbooking things) and popped up my background pieces that I cut out of my pattern paper to give my layout more of a 3D effect so it didn't look so flat to that page.
My next layout is one of my favourites. I went with the clean and simple look again and I think it turned out great! I got some professional photos done from a friend that I went to school with and the pictures were perfect with this line! Most of them were in black and white so the colours really popped when I used them.
I have been stitching on almost every layout I have been creating the past little while so why not do it on this one? I cut out a couple hearts and popped them up with pop dots and stitched down the center with a contrasting colour.
The final touch to this layout were my butterflies. I love the look of butterflies on the layouts I have seen in magazines and I hadn't tried them until this layout. After seeing the way that they look I think all my layouts are going to have butterflies on them. I added little spools on the top of them and wrapped them with contrasting floss to add a little bit of colour and taaadaaaa!
My next layout is also really neat! I tried a bunch of new things while working with this paper so I really liked them all. This one had a couple of new things I have never done before and it turned out really well.
I used the Silhouette to cut out my title for my layout. I love how it turned out!
I stitched a "rainbow" pattern on my layout to add a little more colour and a different effect. To finish off the "rainbow pattern" I added matching brads around the outside. Then I cut out a couple clouds and popped them up with pop dots.
The last layout that I created was by far my favourite! I used the Journaling Cards paper and incorporated my photos onto the 3x4 cards.
The final project I made with my design team kit was this adorable card! I stitched again to create the circles on the background. Then I cut out some butterflies and added a couple matching gems to finished the card off.
This new Echo Park line is in the store so stop by and check it out!
