As a scrapbooker, I know one of my favorite things is keeping watch out for the new releases by companies, especially my favorite! Echo Park is a company who is constantly releasing new products it seems. It seems they have more new releases than others. For example, I received for my Craft Warehouse design team assignment this Echo Park Note To Self. But the funny thing, even though this assignment was only due on Friday, there have still been several more new releases since this product line. Wowzers, how is a girl to stay on budget?
The simplicity and clean lines of this line really appeal to me. It fits my style well. As well as the prevalence of brown. If I could change one thing, I would swap out some of the blue for more red. But regardless, it was a fun product line to work with. Today I’m going to share a page I created. The focus of this page had to be the view master paper. Not wanting to use the paper as a whole, I decided to make my embellishments out of it. I cut four of the view master flowers (I used punches and my Creative Memories circle cutters), folded each piece into quarters and layered them into a flower.
Supplies: Echo Park (paper, stickers, alphas), Tim Holtz (resist kraft paper), Studio Calico (veneer shapes)
Design Tip: Scale your embellishments to different sizes Make the primary focal embellishment the largest and then scale the consequential ones down so there isn’t a competition of similar sized objects. Objects scaled correctly should automatically tell their “priority” of importance as your eye scans the page.
Price Per Page: $$$ ($3-$4 MSRP)
