Echo Park Blog Hop

I am so excited to be participating in my first ever Echo Park Design Team Blog Hop!!!




Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. Return to the Echo Park Paper blog at any time for the next blogger on the list in case you get lost or confused! ONE winner will be selected from each blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing. To qualify for the kit, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, January 27th to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, January 28th  so be sure to check back to see if you've won.

I created a few projects with the fun Love Story collection.  So many ways this set can be used!  First up is this little pocket and tag that I created with my Mini Books Cricut cartridge.  I thought iw would be a fun thing for hubby and attached to the tag could be a 'date night' coupon or gift certificate to our favorite restaurant.



Next up is this cute little box.  I received the box awhile ago with some chocolates in it.  I took it apart, used my Glue Dots and Glue Lines to adhere the paper and reassemble.  I love how pretty this paper is. Easy peesy!


Finally, I have a fun card.  I always love the chipboard that co-ordinates with the Echo Park Collections.  

Now be sure to hop along and comment for your chance at a prize.
