Echo Park Guest Designer and Giveaway!



How fun to be able to work with Echo Park's newest products as a guest designer! Be sure to check out the Echo Park blog and Echo Park facebook site as well!
***also, be sure to read the end of this post for how to enter to win a kit from this line!***



Banner 10-31 card: On this card I cut a spider web from patterned paper and inked the outer edges with black ink. Place that on the center of your card. Next, place two black brads on either side of the web- don't make the brads too tight so that you can wrap them with orange twine. Place banner stickers onto black cardstock. Add 10 star and 31 to centers of banners. Cut around banners so that the bbanners are matted with black cardstock. Use pop dots to adhere banner pieces to card. I used the Cricut Expression to cut the spider and glued it to my card.



Beware of cats jar.
Choose a glass jar to decorate- I got this one fairly cheap from a craft store. Cut a circle the size of the bottom of the jar. I used my Cricut Expression and Cricut Happy Hauntings cart to cut a spooky tree from Apothecary Emporium patterned paper and set it into the glass. I really want to re-use this container during other seasons. So, instead of adhering my sticker (beware of black cats) onto it, I adhered the sticker to black cardstock and cut around it. Then, I attached it to my orange ribbon at the top of the jar.




Spider box: To create the spider box I used the awesome spider patterned paper from this line. I used my cricut and the wrap it up cart to cut the box (material saver off, which turned out to be 9" I then cut the layers of spider at 2". I used the lacey sticker from the Apothecary Emporium line to wrap around the top edge of the box as well.




3D Coffin treat box: I used my cricut once again and cut a 3d coffin from patterned paper using the wrap it up cart <3dcoffin> at 9". I inked the edges. Then, I folded a long strip of patterned paper accordion style and made a pennant-style embellishment for the top of the coffin. I added orange ribbon and topped it with one of the cool stickers from the Apothecary Emporium collection. I also used three small bat stickers from this line, only adhering the centers and gently bending the wings for a 3d look.


In celebration of my guest spot I'm giving away a kit from the Echo Park's Apothecary Emporium line! This is the line I used on the projects shown today! Leave a comment here and on the Echo Park blog for a chance to win! I'll randomly choose a winner on Thursday, the 25th and announce it on my blog and on the Echo Park facebook site! tfl!

Thanks everyone and thank you Echo Park for the fun opportunity!, Charity

I always look to your ideas for inspiration. I especially love your halloween ideas as I have four boys who love to dress up and I love to catch those memories on paper. This paper is "too cool" as my youngest son says! m_davey39982@fanshaweonline.ca

I love your layouts and ideas. They give me ideas that can capture such important moments in my life as I am married and have four boys. My youngest says "this paper is too cool" and I agree. I would love to use it on my next layout. m_davey39982@fanshaweonline.ca
