Echo Park ‘Fresh Faces’ Design Team Call

 

Hi Hi! and Goood Morningggggggggggg Guys!

If this is your first time to visit here, you can see my other Echo Park works here.

Yes, you read right-this post is my application to apply for the Echo Park  ‘Fresh Faces Campaign’ DT call.   I’m very excited to try out.  I absolutely adore Every one of Echo Park Papers.  Absolutely—>Outstanding Paper Quality they have and just Amazing Print Designers!  Every one of their lines are Versatile,  Colorful, Happy and so much FUN to create with!

I hope you like what I’ve done and try them for Yourself this Holiday and Wish Me Luck! :)

1.  Christmas Mailbox

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This lil mailbox can be made up larger or small depending on your needs and WANTS!  [of course that's the important part...right]?

Ingredients:

  • Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Collection
  • Echo park Holly Jolly Christmas Stamp Collection
  • SVGcuts Tea with Mother Set [for envelope]
  • eCraft personal electronic cutter by Craftwell
  • Mailbox and Flag SVG by KimberlyRae
  • Twine
  • buttons
  • brads
  • ribbons
  • scissors
  • tombow glue runner
  • scotch tacky fast drying glue

So here goes!

1. You will want to cut out your preset mailbox body keeping proportions to 4″x6″

2. Then,  fold over tabs and glue the large bottom tab to the right side of the body [sound confusing?  Seriously, it really is quite EASY -see pic below]

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Detail to glue the body of mailbox…click on photos for Larger view.

3.  After you’ve got the body glued up, then it’s ready for the back panel-glue that on.

4.  The  front you leave open and just press the tabs inside the mailbox and glue securely.

5.  Take your front door piece and glue tabs to front

6  …with your  rectangular floor piece glue on top of the front door tabs, for a more finished look.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

7.  Add a button to the front and a brad on top [this will be come your enclosure or latch].  Add your flag using your stamps and brad [so the flag moves up and down]!  Add your decorations and you’re done!

**Can also be used as a gift ornament exchange or a nifty place to put lil surprise somethings into! FUuuuUN!

**Envelopes**  For the tiny lil envelopes you will  first need to cut out your envelope by using SVGcuts svg envelope file.  I made mine to measure 4″x3″ but seriously you can make these any size  you prefer for your particular project.  SVGcuts makes their svgs so easy to cut with ready made scorelines which I love!  Just bend over the tabs and off ya go to a wonderful lil envelope to fit in your mailbox.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You can even make the envelopes into ornaments, place a ‘find-it’ note inside

and

You can make them for Valentine box holders or a special teacher’s gift…let your imagination run wild!

 

2. 3D Scented Ornament

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Collection
  • eCraft personal electronic cutter by Craftwell
  • eCraft Fundamentals 1 SD card
  • Sewing machine
  • Fiskars Trimmer
  • Fiskars scallop border punch
  • spray room freshener
  • batting
  • ribbon
  • bling jewels
  • Tim  Holtz distressed ink [red and green]
  • Tim Holtz Red scissors
  • tombow glue runner
  • scotch tacky fast drying glue

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So let’s get started!

1. Cut two heart shapes out [any heart shape will do]. The two large hearts are 5.5″ and the two smaller hearts are 2″ and 1.5″.

2. Ink up your hearts edges.  I used forest green and  barn door red color inks.

3. Using your glue runner, glue a few lines in the middle and secure Batting in place.

4. Spritz or spray a couple squirts of air freshener [I used Apple Cinnamon] onto the Batting.

5. Run a few stripes of glue with your glue runner in the middle of the front heart and place over the batting that you have already prepared.

6. With your trimmer, cut out the tag -ink edges-and glue the strips of cut out scallop border onto the top and bottom of the tag.

7. Now Sew with around the heart -holding the looped ribbons in place in the ‘v’ of the heart shape.  Sew Twice, meandering around.

        

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adhere your sentiment, layered hearts and bling tading-ding-ding—> You’re Done! :)

 

3. Tree and Birdhouse Art Deco Canvases

This is a project I’ve been eye-ballin’ for some months over at simply modern mom!  And Now is the time…I decided I’m just going to do it!  haha  My hubster and mine’s bedroom needs a lil wall re-do so here it is and I’m so thrilled with the results.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ingredients:

  • Echo Park Holly ‘Jolly Christmas’ Collection
  • Echo Park ‘Apothecary Emporium’ Collection
  • Echo Park  ‘Happy Days’ Collection
  • Echo Park  ‘A Walk in the Park’ Collection
  • Echo Park ‘For the Record’ Collection
  • Echo Park ‘Life is Good’ Collection
  • Echo Park ‘Play Ground’ Collection
  • eCraft personal electronic cutter by Craftwell
  • 18×24 wrapped Canvas [2]
  • Espresso Acrylic Paint
  • #2 and 3/4″ Paint Brushes
  • Sewing machine
  • Alene’s Modge podge
  • Fiskars Trimmer
  • bling jewels
  • Tim  Holtz distressed inks
  • Tim Holtz Red scissors
  • tombow glue runner
  • scotch tacky fast drying glue

Instructions:

1. First, sketch out your trees.  If you’re more into Vinyl that will work, too and remember to erase your sketch marks..haha

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Then paint your trees [I just eye-balled the photo and went from there with the paint] oh gosh it was like I was back in school with a paint brush…felt Great!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Set Canvases aside and let dry–it’s Fast drying so cool beans for that!

4. Cut out and assemble your birdhouse, love birds and heart [for you eCrafters out there use 2.5 pressure, no tabs, no CSS.
I made SVGs for mine to cut out, since I didn't have any files or dies to work with.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

5.  Now get ready to Cut a Ton of 2" and 1.5" leaves [I wanted all different solids and prints but this is entirely up to you].  I cut 32 larger leaves and 31 smaller leaves- set aside

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

6. Adhere the birdhouse and love birds

7. Adhere the leaves tossed through-out the tree branches on both canvases [a tape runner will do-you're going to seal it all up in a minute]!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

8. Modge podge entire canvases over EVERYTHING [you can use spray sealant...I used old fashioned brush on method] ha

9. Hang as desired and Enjoy the view :)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I absolutely love this project and already have another canvas in mind with a new lil twist…stay tuned in another post.

Now my hubby and I have something of our very own and we love our new addition to our room!! :)

Your questions and comments are Always Welcome :)

Thank you, Echo Park  for the opportunity to work with your team and I appreciate  you considering my work.

Hugs and Blessings,
