Echo Park Jack-n-Jill Boy Collection with Shelly

The boy collection of double sided papers, element and alphabet stickers from Echo Park's Jack-n-Jill Collection is amazing to work with due to the diversity in paper designs (bicycles, airplanes, billiards, cameras, maps, plaids, and more!) and great 4x6 card and 3x5 card papers:

 I used my gears die to cut a few embellishments and secured them with antique buttons:
 Create inspirational 4x4 home decor item using the newest stain (edges), foil paper adds a bit of shine:

 Create a 4x6 mini-album for dad for Father's Day (it's just around the corner):
 I used my crop-a-dile to punch holes and set eyelets along the binding and used twine to hold it all together.


Dad will need a card, too, so try this A2 size card using a few of the papers and element stickers for the greeting (I layered three here). Also, I used Tim Holtz ideaology industrious stickers for the two photo corners. 
 I loved the tiny alphabet (therer's a big one two) included with the 12x12 alphabet sticker sheet. 
 Using tiny tweezers, I was able to create this cards greeting. The metal staple from the tiny attacher adds a bit of masculinity to the cards.
Thanks for taking a peak at this month's design team projects for The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL

Echo Park's Jack-n-Jill GIRL Collection is delightful! Pick up the entire collection NOW at The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL
Check out this cigar box make-over:
 I used Mini Flowers on the cover along with several stickers from the 12x12 Element Sticker Sheet, a die cut butterfly and bling for the flower center and butterfly's body (above) and below I used the backside of the Border Strips sheet to cover the inside of the lid along with a few more element stickers. The bottom inside is covered with Vintage Ads.
 The sides were covered with Jill Floral and I added some border stickers, too. The adhesive I used was 1/4" Sookwang double sided tape in a roll. I think this will be a fun catch-all for cards and trinkets for any young lady.
This 12x12 layout features a "sweet" banner using stickers from the 12x12 alphabet sheet...
 antique and modern buttons tied with twine and bling in the flower centers.
The collection include journaling cards and word stickers:
This A2 size "Thank you" card was created with a cardstock base and uses a 4x6 journaling card as the front. The "Thank You" and butterflies are all die cuts and the butterflies were also embossed and sanded before being inked and layered using a flower brad.
Here are a few more cards using the collection:
 and their insides, too!

Thanks for taking a look at this collection of papers, projects and cards using the Echo Park Jack-n-Jill Girl Collection. Remember, you can pick up this entire line of papers, stickers, and embellishments at The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL.
