Today I am sharing a couple of layouts using Echo Park Mini Theme collections. These are smaller collections that contain two sheets each of double sided patterned papers along with a coordinating sticker sheet. If you haven't used these smaller packs, you are missing out, they are just a perfect amount of fun themey products. I thought I would do a dino page combining the Dinosaur Adventure collection and Family Reunion collection papers because they work so well together and I had so much fun with my page that I finished a second page. These will go in the album next to each other so its nice that they coordinate even though they are not technically a 2 pager.
Here is my first page using funny photos of my husband and a dino puppet.
Supplies: Echo Park - Dinosaur Collection Kit, Echo Park - Family Reunion Collection Kit, Simple Stories - Sweater Weather - Crisp Days Paper, Dear Lizzy - Foil Letter Stickers, Freckled Fawn - Paper Clips - Retro Star Clips, Freckled Fawn - Paper Clips - Red Long Arrow, Dear Lizzy - Serendipity - Phrases Date Stamp, Becky Higgins - Project Life - Desktop Embossing Folders
added a woodgrain patterned paper from Simple Stories for a more rustic
look. I also added some extra dimension by embossing vellum using the Becky Higgins - Project Life - Desktop Embossing Folders.
This pack has 2 embossing folders but I chose the background of stars,
and I have layered it behind my photos and patterned papers. The cute
frames were cut from one of the patterned papers in the Family Reunion
of the 4x6 cards on the patterned papers in the Dinosaur Adventure
collection kit says "RAWR means: I love you (in dinosaur)" so I cut it
apart to use it for my title. I stamped the "oh my" using the Dear Lizzy - Serendipity - Phrases Date Stamp.
my second layout I chose to cut out block title letters from this cute
dino print paper, machine straight stitch around them and then cut the
second half of the title from the darker red orange paper. I continued
the same look as the first page using the woodgrain paper and the same
splatters of mists.
Supplies: Echo Park - Dinosaur Collection Kit, Echo Park - Family Reunion Collection Kit, Simple Stories - Sweater Weather - Crisp Days Paper, Simple Stories - Sweater Weather - Enamel Dots,
cute little frames were perfect for a photo op page and I cut these
adorable dinos from one of the patterned papers as well so that they
would fit in the little frames. Then I just added a few enamel dots
around the frames.
