It is no secret that one of my favorite scrapbook companies is Echo Park. I remember when Sweet Summertime was released--I knew I had to have it because the colors and designs seemed like they were made for me. I love using bright colors and happy, playful designs. I think I have gotten every collection that has been released since that very first one last year. You can't beat the price for a whole collection including patterned paper, journaling card sheet, paper strip sheet, alphas and stickers all coordinating and all the cutest ever! Here is a collage of a few of the layouts I made last year:
So of course when I had the opportunity to grab a few of the current collections I jumped at the chance. I have three layouts to share with you made with three different Echo Park collections.
Here is one using elements from Dots and Strips:
I added a piece of white Bazzill cardstock and some American Crafts Thickers but everything else is from the Dots and Stripes Metropolitan collection.
I loved that the banner sticker was flexible enough to "hang from a few spots at the top and the mini alphas bring that lighter blue color in a second time:
I couldnt resist rolling a flower to match the one on my daughter's dress and then spiraling thin strips of the EP paper around a paint brush to mimic the corkscrew ribbon curls in her headband:
I also got the new Echo Park Splash collection! We have a LONG, HOT summer here in Arizona so water is completely our friend and I have a ton of sprinkler, pool and fountain pictures.
I used a piece of pink polka dot paper from the Dots and Stripes Candy Shoppe Collection and then layered a bunch of Splash paper and stickers over it. Every product on this page is made by Echo Park. I love layering a bunch of the sticker elements together as I did here to make the title (and you get so many on the 12x12 sheet that you dont feel like you're using them all up on one layout!):
Finally, I decided to make one layout with an oldie but a goodie--Little Boy. All those moms of little guys out there know how hard it is to find cute scrapbooking supplies for little boys. In my opinion Echo Park's Little Boy remains one of the best ever:
Again, I just love the combination of journaling spots, border stickers and fun alphas all included in the collection.
I know I don't need to convince any of you that Echo Park rocks. I mean, they have a staggering number of Facebook fans and blog followers! I just can't wait to see what they come up with next! How about you?
