Blowing Kisses layout

 Good day everyone! Here I used the Echo Park Blowing Kisses collection, and the color palette of this LOVELY collection (pun intended!) has me swooning! I love the addition of the black along with the reds and pinks. And I am in love with the hearts, doilies, and roses!

I started by trimming the solid cream paper from the collection to 8 1/2” x 11”. At the top of my layout, I simply layered strips of the solid black and red/white stripe patterned papers. And then added the round ephemera bit and a button from my supplies.

Tip: Add a little bit of vellum for a fun effect on layouts! Here I added a strip of it on the left side of the pink doily patterned paper. I love how it adds just a little something extra! I added layers of cute coordinating stickers and ephemera bits too.

I absolutely adore this couples silhouette from the sticker sheet! I used the “Love” die from the Silhouette Love Die set to cut out “Love” using vellum and added it over the couple. I think it adds a sweet touch!

The cute pink alphabet stickers are perfect for titles like the one I made here. And I seriously can’t get enough of the banner stickers. They quickly and cutely finish off the bottom of my layout!

These flower stickers are adorable too. I could have an entire garden full of them! Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create a layout about someone or something you love!

A DIY Party Hat!

Hello! Today's post is all about a fun little DIY party hat I made using Echo Park Paper's Little Man collection! The color palette of this bright collection is perfect for layouts, cards, or any kind of project about young, energetic boys!  I first used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a basic 3D party hat shape from teal star patterned paper. And embellishing my hat was a snap using this happy-go-lucky collection!

I die cut the solid blue star and the orange patterned star using dies from the Dream Big Die Set. I adhered these cut stars to the top of the hat using foam adhesive. I then adhered a green star sticker to a tooth pick and stuck the bottom of the tooth pick into the foam adhesive behind the orange star. I then adhered the red banner sticker to the very top. So easy, but oh-so-cute!

I first embellished the bottom half of the hat by adhering the bulls eye die cut from the Ephemera Pack. I used foam adhesive to adhere the "boys rule" sticker in the middle of the bulls eye. I then added two little red banners and star stickers.

Next, I adhered the little boy sticker to the hat with more foam adhesive and added a green star sticker to his shirt. I love how this sticker shows him in the middle of skate boarding! How cool!
Thanks for joining me today! I hope I have inspired you to create a fun party hat when you get your hands on this fun Little Man collection!
