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.

Simple Stories Design Team Hugs and Kisses and Snow Fun Layout and Cards

 Simple Stories' Valentine line of papers, Hugs and Kisses ,is a cheery light hearted paper collection  because of it's bright color palette. It is fun to create Valentine's Day Treats inspirational products:
Above is an SRM pillow box container wrapped in a paper border, embellished with stickers, and sprayed with silver colored Glitter Dust spray. It's filled with chocolates! Below is a Pebbles  treat bag filled with chocolates. I added a bicycle sticker from the sticker sheet, folded over the bag's top and secured it with a red Doodlebug clothespin.
 I used a tag shaped punch to create tags from the Love Letters paper. (They are about 2x3" un-punched).
Above and below tent shaped treat containers were created using 2" wide strips of various pieces of Hugs and Kisses paper, folding them to create two sides and the bottom, filling cellophane bags with treats and putting them inside the paper tents.
 I secured the cellophane bags with my Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, and the covered the staples with embellishments
 The 6x6 "LOVE" card was easy to create with the sticker sheet, ribbon, and a
  beautiful Graphic 45 key tied with twine. I secured the ribbon and key with glue lines and glue dots.
 I would also like to share this winter themed layout using Simple Stories Snow Fun paper collection:
 I used their fundamentals 6x12 sticker sheet to add some words and circles to the page, and clear crystals for the snowflake centers. I used a Copic Marker to color some of the crystals a lime green color so they would match the paper.
 Finally, here are a few cards also created with the Snow Fun collection. I love the Snowman icons found throughout this line of papers and stickers:
 I used an SRM silver doily as a mat for my greeting which is pop dotted onto the doily. I die cut the racoon using a Sizzix die, and the large snowflake is also cut using s Sizzix die.
Fawn lawn white dots hold the banner together, a snowflake charm held on with fine floss adds a bit of texture to the card. I also used a Chalksters white marker around the edges of the blue paper.
 The circle mat was created with a WRMK 6x6 punch, the window, snowman, cocoa, and ticket are all stickers from the 6x12 fundamentals stickers. I added some silver/white glitter paper for a little sparkle.
Thanks for taking a peak at these Valentine treats and winter layouts and cards. Remember, you can find them all at The Scrapbooking Studio, Moline, IL
