Echo Park Paper - Mini Banner

Hi everyone!  I'm up on the Echo Park blog today sharing this cute mini banner that I made by combining a file from the Silhouette Store and Echo Park's Designer Dies.


I cut the banner panels with my Silhouette Cameo at 4"h and then used the Wreath and Holiday Bell Designer Dies to embellish them.  This banner's small size makes it very versatile.  You could use it to decorate a bag or box, hang it across a wreath or open picture frame or simply hang it on the wall. 

Echo Park's portfolio is full of fabulous files that make great backgrounds for the Designer Dies. Mixing the files from the Silhouette Store with die cuts gives you tons of options for your projects.

Paper Issues - Pinspire Me Monday

Hi everyone!  Today we start a new feature over at Paper Issues....Pinspire Me Monday!  I love browsing Pinterest for inspiration and recently came across with beautiful color combo.

Lori Whitlock October Blog Hop

 Hi everyone! Welcome to our October Blog Hop!
You should have arrived  from Lori's blog where you can pick up this fun freebie!

I have a Halloween project to share with you today.  I made Lori's Jack-o-Lantern Treat box using paper from the Arsenic and Lace Collection from Echo Park.  This box is the perfect size for classroom treats and is very easy to put together.  What a cute face!


I also cut the Jack-O-Lantern Pop Up card.  I just love this card!  I can't believe it's the first time I've made a pop up card.  It looks really cool in person. 

I used some stickers from the paper collection to embellish the outside of the card.  

Lori's is having a sale.  Digital files are on sale for one day only over at Snap Click Supply.

Lori's SVG files are on sale all week!  Now is a great time to stock up for the Holidays. 

You next stop is Mendi. Thanks so much for stopping by!
