More Echo park

This is the layout I made with the leftovers from my last post using Echo Park Summertime, the only thing I added was some white foam Thickers for the title and a brad.

I still have some spaces left for this coming Sundays all day crop, details on the side bar.  Would be great to see you...we are a friendly!!!

Echo Park Summertime

Great title..."Summertime" I think not, the rain is lashing down so hard I can hardly hear myself!!  Where has our lovely hot August gone that we were promised!!  So I decided to post this layout I have just completed of sunny days when the boys were younger { now 23 and 16!!} and playing in the garden at our old house. 

Echo Park are a relatively new company from the States, started by the people behind My Minds of my favourites scrapbooking companys!!  It has a very different modern feel to it and not the sort of thing I would usually give a second look at...but sometimes you need to push yourself "outside the box" as they say and I am really glad I did.  The papers are quite bright and patterened but on the reverse they have more subtle patterns so one softens the other.  Everything on the page except the buttons/bazzill are from the range, they do a great set of die cut stickers for each range and there is a new one each month.  Summertime was the first one and as the colours went more with my photos thats the one I decided on.

I had enough left over to complete another layout and I will post that next time.

Have a great weekend..hopefully it will be a little drier but according to the weather man maybe not...oh well cant garden so will craft instead and off to Stamperama show on Sunday!!

August kit

This month I am using My Minds Eye So Sophie Charming for class kits. You get full instructions to complete a double and a single layout. This kit includes 2 sheets of Bazzill, 4 double sheets of cardstock and I die cut sheet of cardstock, a set of alphabet stickers, 2 accessory sticker sheets, transparency frame and a title die cut. For my single layout I have used Sweet, chic and glamorous, but you could have "little lady", "open your heart", delightful adorable", "happy for you" or I also have some with no wording that you could stick a die cut a title onto.

Photo sizes: Single layout 7x5 port and for the double 1 6x4 port and 1 6x4 land { either of these could have the transparency on it, I do have extra ones if you want to use 2. Then bring another 4/5 photos, that can be cropped down. There is plenty of room for different sizes, 3 of mine are land and 1 is port.

I am teaching this kit at my house on Sat 28th August and Sat 4th Sept, the cost is £15.00 from 1.00pm, if you are interested in coming along email me.  I still have some spaces for the all day crop on Sunday 22nd August...see details on the side bar.

Kaisercraft Utopia

Brought these papers a while back as its one of the few that has purple/mauve as one of the colour combos and I still have quite a few years of my childrens Infants and Junior school photos to do and they had purple uniform throughout the two schools.  Everything on this page except the felt letters which are from Making Memories is from the Utopia range.  I will add a date on the label on the top but I need to complete all her school layouts before I can work out the!!
