Sometimes you just fall in love

with a range of papers and no matter how many times you use them, they still call to you for more. This happened with Echo Parks “For The Record” range. Love them to bits.

Here are 3 layouts I made for the fortnightly classes.


With this design you need to cut the green paper first to measure 10” x 7” and then, depending on the size of the photo you use, cut three pieces of different papers to fit as shown in the picture.


The Walk


I loved the “Stamp Of Approval” paper in this kit but it was too easy to just decorate the page, so I cut around the stamped edge making a square in the middle, which I then turned over and stuck into place using masking tape. This gave me a red centre and a black border.

The flowers were cut from “Table Cloth” and the butterflies we stamped onto the same paper and cut out. In this way all of the pieces colour matched.



This was an easy layout to do because the picture was so good. Who can resist a smiling baby. Anyway this one was straight forward. The only bit which took some time to make was the square in the bottom right of the layout. For this I took the 6” x 6” blue square from “Picket Fence” and cut it into random strips. Next I stuck the pieces onto “Tuxedo Small Dot” paper (part of the new Dots and Stripes range)leaving a small gap between each strip. When finished, cut around the square leaving a small border. Use a fine pen to make panel marks on a few of the panels. The rest is simple.



You can see more layouts using more of the range HERE.

Thank you for looking. xx
