Echo Park Fresh Face Challenge

Hey Everyone,

Once again Echo Park is having their Fresh Face Campaign.  Echo Park is such a fun company.  I love that their kits contain everything you need to make dozens of projects.  With fall fast approaching I thought I would start off with a couple of Halloween Projects.

Pumpkin Carving

I love to layer my pattern paper, and for this layout I used 6 different pieces.   I love to frame my  pattern paper with cardstock,  In this case I matted the main pieces in black.  I then arranged my photos ( I like to use 4x6 photos) on my 10x10 square.  I then added some strips to set off the photos from my journaling.  At the top I made some file tabs and added some additional journaling. For the title I used the alphabet stickers that came with the line.  I love how these coordinated.

Everthing else is Echo Park

Halloween card

For this I card I used my scraps from the above project.  I am a very frugal scrapper and will not throw away the smallest piece because I know I can use it on another project.  I have tons of little frugal tips!

paper and sticker- Echo Park
die cut- Silhouette
stamp- Hero Arts
ink- hero arts

My final project- 1-2-3 Jump

I loved the Splash line for the summer pool photos.  In this layout I used a bunch of the cardstock stickers that come in the collection pack.  I placed the big swirl under the picture of my husband and son jumping in the pool to give off the feeling of them splashing into the water.  The cardstock stickers are always my faves!

I want to thank Echo Park for taking the time to look at my projects and considering my work!

I hope everyone has a great day today! I will be back tomorrow with a fun card! See ya all then!

Well I have my computer for the moment...not totally fixed but just had to come visit for a bit. Your layouts are cute and very creative. Thanks for commenting on my blog. I do agree, stepping back for a while is the answer!

Your layouts and card are lovely. I love that you backed the layout in black cardstock, it really made everything pop. I so love those stickers.

I too keep the tiniest pieces of paper. I save everything.
