Echo Park ‘Jack and Jill’

Echo Park have done it again, creating a  range with 2 sub ranges within it. ‘Jack and Jill’ has both a feminine and masculine line within the one range. Today, I am here to showcase the masculine aspect of the range.

‘Trip to Hobart’ – I really added very little to this range other than the elements available in the line itself, just created a background cardstock with a few inks.



‘You can be anything SO… Be Awesome’ – Just adore the deep blues in this range..perfect for any boy layout.



Cards - I just whipped up a few cards with some of the left overs as I have a few masculine events coming up soon, nothing fancy, just plain and masculine.


Hope you enjoy playing with this range as much as I did, available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard.

Carta Bella ‘Soak Up The Sun’

The new ‘Soak Up The Sun’ range from Carta Bella, released with perfect timing for scrapping all those pictures you took over Summer. Fresh and fun with bright colours and the classic summer theme is what you get with this range.

‘Hello Fishy’ - I played around with a heap of background techniques on this layout including masking, stamping, doodling and ink splats. I also added chipboard and wood veneers for more texture.



Smile’ – I was inspired by the April Sketch and did an 8.5x11 layout for this one. The hot air balloons on the papers and elements in this range are run and cheerful



‘Love Summertime’ – such fun colours, and I really wanted to focus on the girly elements in this range with the bright polka dot paper and cute little pinwheels…. My beautiful niece Eve!


This is a really fun range to create with, the colours automatically draw you in and the cute elements making creating a summery layout a breeze.. available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard.

Prima ‘Timeless’ at Anna’s Craft Cupboard

This is the new PRIMA range called ‘Timeless’, it is a very neural range that adapts itself to all different styles from vintage right through to steampunk or grunge. The papers are rustic with hints of colour, but carry a mainly neutral colour scheme which makes them very versatile.

‘Friends Forever’ - I have used gesso smears on the background piece and torn pieces and washi tape to create a crossed background, then added some colour through some MAMBI stickers… Picture is me with one of my Best Friends Louise!



‘#New Glasses’ – for this layout I mixed some mist with gesso and scraped the outer edge of the paper to give it a flared look, added some old ribbon and a few of the Prima Timeless Memories - Metal Trinkets (Reflection) as embellishments


Thanks for looking… available in STORE follow the link to Anna’s Craft Cupboard
