Keeping My Fingers Crossed!

I am submitting some creations for the Echo Park Fresh Face Designer and I am super excited about it.  This will be my first time to 'try-out'as a designer and I really hope Echo Park loves my stuff:)
I have three different projects using two of Echo Parks latest lines which are fabulous!  The first card I made was with the 'Summer Days' collection kit which fit pefectly with the Hannah stamp from Claudia & Co.  I stamped her on cryogen white paper from the Paper Temptress and colored her with copic markers.  The little fishies were embossed with Stampin' Up powders in wild wasabi, tangerine tango and melon mambo.  Then I just added a lime green ribbon from Hobby Lobby.  The highlight of this card is the bright and beautiful Echo Park 'Summer Days' papers in Scallops, Rainbow and bright pink.  The cute little hang tag is a sticker from the collection.

I used the 'For the Record' collection for my next two projects and I have to tell you, I love this collection!  It is vintage, fun and bright.  The accent pieces are so gorgeous I had to make myself stop adding them.  For the box card I used the Fancy Floral for the body of the card and Borders paper for the band around the card.  I then added a border from an ek Success punch and some ribbon from Archivers.  All the goodies on top are all part of the element and alphabet stickers and a postcard from the paper collection.  I inked around the edges using Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen to enhance the vintage feel of the card.  The inside card used the same Fancy Floral paper as well as the green coordinating paper.  I used a Spellbinders die and added a piece of yellow ribbon.  This card was so simple and yet so beautiful.


My altered photo journal started with a Raw Goods mini album from We R Memory Keepers and it was just so enjoyable to decorate and embellish using as much as I could from 'For the Record' collection.  The only items not from the collection were craft store twine, acrylic paint and mod podge.  The keys and keyhole are Tim Holtz' idealogy but everything else came right out of the collection.  There were so many great postcards, stickers and accents to use that I was disappointed when I had stop adding to the pages.  I also inked around all of the edges with Staz On ink in Saddle Brown for that old, worn look.  I had such a great time with these collections and love Echo Park paper that I will continue to 'try-out' as a Fresh Face Designer even if I don't make it this time.  Ha ha, as if I need another excuse to buy fabulous papers!
