Everyday Eclectic Blog Hop & Giveaway

I was super excited to get an email from Allison Kreft inviting me to play along in a blog hop & giveaway celebrating her new line Everyday Eclectic from Echo Park Papers.

Allison's new line is fun and happy - perfect for documenting a wide variety of stories. You can check out the full collection here.

Here's a look at how I used some of the papers and stickers to create a 2-page, 8.5x11 layout:

A closer look at each page:

I printed my photo 8.5x11 (using my Epson R2000) and added a couple of stickers from the Echo Park Everyday Eclectic 12X12 Alpha Stickers. A bit of stitching was added to repeat the stitching on the second page.

And the second page:

I started with a blank sheet of 8.5x11 paper and then I printed this brush onto the background via Photoshop: Thick Journal Lines Brushes & Stamps.

Then I used some great old stamps from Studio Calico (the script one - I have heard from a very reliable source that this stamp set will make an appearance again in the coming months) and some letter stencils (that I think are from Fiskars) along with some chalk ink.

The pattern papers I used include Half Circle 12X12 and Kraft Wood 12X12. I cut the pattern papers to fit inside the printed lines and then stitched them in place with my sewing machine.

Here's a closer look at the stitching on pattern paper:

Love how this page turned out!
