Today for Monday Craft Madness we are thrilled to be featuring Echo Park’s new Christmas Collections. To make things even better we are featuring some of Echo Park’s fabulous design team’s projects. It’s getting to be that time of year to prepare for the holidays! Maybe this year I can get ahead and start making my projects (maybe not) ….. Today’s theme is:

Christmas

Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah or something else, it is a time for gift-giving, family and friends. Hopefully these creations will inspire you to create something from the heart.

Starting with a layout created by Wendy Sue Anderson, there always seems to be tons of pictures from this time of year.

Since this time of year is full of gift-giving, check out some of the boxes and gift bags created from Echo Park’s design team. This first one is also from Wendy Sue Anderson.

Tamara Tripodi has made a tree box and a cute dog card. A great idea for neighbor gifts.

Susan Stringfellow has created some little treat boxes that would be perfect for teacher gifts.

So you don’t run out of inspiration for Christmas projects, Echo Park has put together a fantastic idea book where you can find many more projects.  Check it out and get even more inspired! Tis the Season Idea Book.
