Scrapping For Less is in Love with Echo


All of us here at Scrapping for Less absolutely love Echo Park Paper Co. They are one diverse company and bring many, many patterns out each and every year. They have at least one release each month and they could not be cuter! Cause who doesn’t love some absolutely cute pattern paper? So, this month’s focus is this fabulous paper company and the Design Team has outdone themselves with some great projects. You can read all about the interview Teresa had with Madison Parker (the owner of Echo Park/Carta Bella) just in case you missed it.

Now on to my projects.  These may look like simple cards but they are in fact inspiration cards that can go on a rotating hanger sort of thing (see last picture).







Here is what I used:
Echo Park 6x6 paper pad "Once Upon a Time"
Echo Park frames & tags "Once Upon a Time"

Thank you for stopping by!  Here is the line up:
Katie (here)
Tina (next)

Don’t forget to head back to the Scrapping for Less Blog to enter the Rafflecopter for a chance to win a 6x6 paper pad and matching embellishment. Thanks so much for joining us today!
