I have been loving Echo Park.  I had to forgo my usual kit this month so I picked up some paper packs at my lss and they are so fun (For the Record is my fave)! I went to crop night at my lss Friday night to start the NSD celebration early and I discovered a chevron punch and I got so excited I made a puddle! OK I just spilled my sprite zero in my lap, but I was very excited and I went a little chevron crazy.

Here is your shopping link:
 This is the first layout I made and it's a combination of "For the Record" and "Little Boy" papers, and some bits from my stash. I punched out all the chevrons and then glued them down (this took awhile, but it was worth it), then I added some random stitching.  I added the photos and stickers, I was just laying some buttons on my page to see if they matched and I liked it so much so much I just glued them down ;).  I added my title and made some journaling lines with my ruler and added my story.  When I was done I was like "I sure wish I would've added some splatters before I put the photo on", but I decided to throw caution to the wind and I just covered the pic with a bunch of paper towels and splattered away.  I added the twine last and I made a little notch in the edge of the paper on one side and then wound it around a button on the other to keep it from wandering.

I continued with my chevron frenzy, but this time in card form
shopping link:

This is pretty simple and straight forward which is how I like my cards.  I just punched and adhered my chevrons and added my stickers.  This is a great general use card to add to my stash.

Ok finally I took a brief respite from my chevron induced mania to make a page based on add on sketch #3 from Sketch Support.  I decided to make this sketch into an 8.5x11 layout, I have been making this size alot latey, it's my fave for small photos, or single photos.  All the circles and the base of the cupcake are all hand cut. 
shopping link:

I put the border stickers down first, then I used some hexagons as a mask and misted a honeycomb background to go with some of the papers.  I glued down the cupcake base and adhered my photos.  I tucked the other circles in where it was pleasing to the eye.  Then I added title and all my little stickers.  I used a cute red button for the cherry and used my sharpie pen for all the doodling.

Thanks for looking! Enjoy your national scrapbooking day weekend
