Fun with Echo Park

It's no secret that Echo Park Paper Co. creates awesome collections for paper crafters.
And not only do they consistently release awesome collections...they release awesome collections EVERY month.

The projects I am sharing today are created from some of the earlier releases - still some of my favorites!

I love this truly makes me smile:

It was created using various papers from A Walk In The Park and is pulled together on a kraft card base. The border banner made it super easy to create the banner flags.

Next up is an adorable little gift box - the perfect size for a gift card or money:

I first created the quick and easy gift box base and then turned it into this sweet owl by embellishing it using various Fiskars punches.

I wanted to keep the fun going on the back, so I added the cute heart embellishment.
{Kinda reminds me of the heart on the Pound Puppies plush toys...remember those?}

The next card was brought to life thanks to the great journaling cards that come in each Echo Park collection kit.
Journaling cards aren't just for scrapbookers...they are great for cardmakers, too! Just add a quick, easy sentiment to a card base to make a clean and simple card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

And be sure to stop back by on Thursday (the 18th) to check out my stop on the Echo Park/The Twinery Blog Hop!
