Christmas came a day early for me! Today, I visited Echo Park's blog as I have for the past 12 days to see if I was chosen as a guest blogger and guess what...I was!! This really made my day!! I am a huge fan of their products!!
You can heck out the post here.
Both projects were created using the Merry Christmas line. I used lots of Cheery Lynn Designs dies here, too. It's hard to tell from the photo, but I embossed the music paper with the Bricks embossing plate before attaching to the house. I also used the Lattice die to create the window panes.
I've had these little Christmas lights in my stash from the very first Christmas layout I ever created...waaaay back when. I strung them on a piece of 24 gauge wire and hot glued them to the tinsel.
I love how well sand paper takes to these papers. I sanded the edges of the border punched strips so each one stands out.
I cut the Picket Fence border from both chipboard and patterned paper and adhered to the back of the house to add dimension.
I just love how easily you can layer the stickers in this collection. I cut up the string of lights stickers, placed them to the tree sticker and adhered it with pop dots.
I also created a layout with this collection featuring my little guys. I used lots of stickers here; layering for depth and dimension.
Thanks so much Echo Park for making my day extra special!!
Merry Christmas everyone!! I hope your day is filled with love and blessings! Until the next post...
