Echo Park + WIP Kits

This is a project that I made with the July Work in Progress kit. I love this kit - it's full of bright bold designs like the paper and stickers from Echo Park Paper Co. and lots of Jenni Bowlin goodies.

I made 6 little flags as a play on my page title. I thought it was a subtle and different way to scrap the same theme park pictures that I take every year. The sticks are shish kabob skewers that I picked up at the grocery store.

There are so many great Echo Park stickers in this kit. I am happy to say that I used almost all of them! I added some journaling right on the cloud because that bitty journaling spot wasn't enough space for my story. I measured the space, stuck the sticker on cardstock, aligned the text in Photoshop Elements and printed. Finally, I cut the sticker out and pop dotted onto my layout.

My other project was this vacation countdown doorhanger that I made for my son. Since at 4-1/2, he has no real sense of time yet, he keeps asking me (daily) when we are going to the shore house. I made this so he has a concrete reminder of how much time we still have to go. Mind you it's almost 2 months away. He can't wait to put it up though!
I loved working with this kit. Everything went together nicely and really motivated me to do some summery pages.
I'll post 2 more projects tomorrow!

  2. That 2-pager is something else, it won't be long before a "out for pub" sign will replace it. How did you print your journaling on that cloud Nancy? I typically stick the sticker onto my regular paper and send it through the printer. But I'm so impatient and I don't have a laser printer, so I would have to wait for the ink to dry, that just isn't happening, but I love the look, I might have to try it :)

  3. Jing-Jing,
    Not so sure about that "out for pub" since I rarely get around to submitting anymore! As far as printing on the cloud goes...I used my regular Epson 1400 photo printer. For faster ink drying time, you could try an embossing gun. It works!
