Echo Park Birthday Wishes | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #10

Daffodil – Week 10 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

If there’s one thing each and every year that always comes…it’s birthdays. Our birthdays, our children’s birthdays, their friend’s birthdays, their cousin’s birthdays – the list goes on and on and on. Sometimes we dread celebrating those milestones each and every year, but now there’s something that can make us smile through the process.  Birthday Wishes from Echo Park Paper Ts a bright and happy birthday collection with all of the traditional elements we think of. From cake and candles to party hats and presents, this collection has everything you need for your celebratory memories. Today’s Mid Week Mojo was super fun to create.  I just can’t get enough of little Jovi and her 1st birthday celebration. This collection suited her celebration perfectly.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

I decided to concentrate all of the elements in one spot on this page.  Negative space is a hard thing for me to leave, but I do love how this one turned out. Starting with a 4″ x 4″ photo, I built the space around it.

The available sticker elements in this collection were perfect for this layout.  From the title to the balloons and cupcakes I found everything I wanted to add to this layout.

A few pop dots and a few gems finish up the layout and highlight Jovi as the princess she truly is.

A big congrats to Leslie Walker, you are last week’s winner!

Echo Park Jack & Jill | Mid Week Mojo Daffodil #4

Daffodil – Week 4 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

I got to see a bunch of new collections at the Craft & Hobby Association Trade Show last month in Anaheim. Some were great, some not so much, but this  Echo Park Jack & Jill -Boy collection was definitely one of the favorites of the show. The mix of nostalgic icons with traditional boy colors made creating today’s Mid Week Mojo super fun. I remember when I saw this collection the first photo I imagined was this cute picture of Zach with his adorable suspenders and hat.

Here is the layout:

Here is the sketch:

Echo Park has many of their traditional awesome embellishments with this collection; stickers, chipboard, enamel dots. They have now ventured into the land of ephemera packs where you find tons of awesome die cuts for your projects. I also love the rich colors included in this collection. I wanted to keep scrapping, but had to finally go to bed. Check out some close ups of this layout:

Echo Park Paper Collections | Mid Week Mojo Petunia #8

Petunia – Week 8 of 10
New to Mid Week Mojo?  Get started here

Today we are super thrilled to welcome a guest sketcher to our Mid Week Mojo  Brenda Smith has created dozens of awesome layouts and sketches for us, I am so excited she got to use Echo Park Paper’s Capture Life Collection Kit today for her project. Check out what she made.

Hello my fellow Stealers. I am so happy to be back here with another Midweek Mojo sketch for you. Even more exciting is that I got to use an absolutely fun and adorable line by Echo Park Paper and designed by Allison Kreft, Capture Life. There are so many sunny, bright colors and whimsical patterns like bokeh and brush script lettering. And to my surprise, I was also sent Capture Life in Black and White so I had a bunch of the same patterns in black and white. Let me tell you, I had so much fun making this layout.

First, I’ll show you my sketch. I wanted to play around with layers since there were so many fabulous papers to choose from.

Now, my layout.

I knew I wanted to use the black and white paper with the “all you need is love” as a large part of my background but also had to work in that bokeh paper because it is so fun!

There are so many fun sticker elements in both of these collection packs so I worked a lot of those into my layout.

This was such a fun collection to play with and I can’t wait to make more with it.

I’m looking forward to seeing your interpretations of the sketch this week! Thanks for playing along.

A big congrats to Charissa Miller, you are last week’s winner!

Echo Park Through the Year | Monday Craft Madness #43

When we had our retreat a few months ago I was able to travel with some lovely ladies around to see some of our local manufacturers. We went to visit Echo Park and Madison showed us some new collections. Their Through the Year Collection twas one of those. I got excited about the calendar theme of this collection. I dreamed of making calendars for grandma for Christmas, a birthday calendar and a goal calendar. I decided to day to make the start of a goal-themed calendar so I have something to look to for next year. So today’s theme is:

Goal-oriented

Create something that showcases a goal you have achieved or hope to achieve.   Here’s what I created:

 

I am hoping I can flip through this calendar each month of next year and accomplish a goal I planned ahead. Everyone wish me luck! Check out some more of the pages.

Here’s hoping that looking at something bright and happy will help me accomplish some of my goals for next year.

Sneak Peeks From Our Favorite Brands

Last week I was able to go to a little trade show, right here in Salt Lake City. I have been in and around the crafting world for over a decade and this is the first time I was able to attend a show without boarding an airplane first. This was a small show and closed to the public, so I thought I would show a little of what I was able to see from some of our favorite brands. (Please excuse some of my iPhone photos)

My Mind’s Eye

Bo Bunny

Echo Park & Carta Bella Paper

Silhouette – I’m loving what they are doing with fabric.

Graphic45

Lawn Fawn

Simple Stories

And last but definitely not least…
