Hello Echo Park friends, Anya here today to share a card for Dad, using the mini theme “Team Dad”. I love how many choices this mini theme lets you have! Whether your dad is into sports, cooking or grilling, wears suits and ties or just a great handy man – it covers them all! For my card I picked some things that relate to my dad.
To begin my card, I folded a piece of white Carta Bella cardstock and cut it down to 5.5x6 inches. Then I cut out a few different color blocks, including a solid orange paper that was stamped with the Woodgrain Designer stamp. To the main 4x4 piece, I added a white frame with cardstock and stitched around it on my sewing machine. I love dimensions on my cards, therefore I adhered a lot of pieces with pop dots.
Also, I used a Denim paper to add a pocket inside the card to hold my gift and a message that can be added to the back of the tag. First, I added a pocket, adhering just four corners and stitching it down. To hide the stitches on the back of the card, I covered it with a piece of pattern paper from this set, and finished this card by adding a few more pieces, stickers, and a tag, to go inside of the pocket.
Products used in this project:
Ribbon, foam dots, white thread, white twine.
Hello! Anya here with you today and I’m excited to share a layout using the Summer Party collection! One of the first things I think about when talking about a party is confetti; that’s why I decided to base my layout on confetti designed paper for a festive look!
There are a lot of parties in our household during the summer. We come up with any reason just to come together and celebrate family and friendship. One of the great ways to include a number of pictures from different occasions on one page is to give each picture its individual “home”. By distributing a similar color palate throughout the page, you can connect these pieces together.
I must admit, I always try to find an easy way out when I need a title for the page, that’s why paper with border strips is always one of my favorites! Here I cut off a long strip with phrases and used just one piece on the page, saving the rest for another layout. To make the title pop up, I folded two pieces of ribbon, stapled them to the page and added my title with foam adhesive.

Hello everyone! I am dreaming of summer vacation and time at the beach. While thinking about putting my toes in the sand, I saw this fantastic new set of Designer Dies called, Summer Sand Castle Die Set. Knowing that Designer Dies can cut a variety of mediums, I wondered if sand paper would work. It does!
I dug through my husband’s tool box and found a piece of 80 grit sand paper. Using my manual die cutting machine, I was able to easily cut through the sand paper. It is possible that you may have to pass it through your machine twice, to make sure the cut is complete. Be sure and wipe out your dies afterwards, to remove the small grains of sand left behind.
How adorable is that castle?!?!
The background of the card base is a patterned paper from Summer Party called Swimming Fish. I love how it goes from what looks like sky to water to sand! The perfect backdrop. I added a sentiment from Designer Stamps Sunny Days Stamps, which was fitting.
I also stamped the palm trees in the background. Using a pale blue ink, the stamping added a very cool layer of texture. Who is ready for vacation?!
