SCOOT from Echo Park

Echo Park are fabulous at creating bright and colourful ranges that are catered for boys and the more masculine scrapper style. So when I received these papers from the ‘SCOOT’ range,I was in my element. The fun designs and cheerful colours make scrapping those boys photos so easy.


Layered papers and elements on an altered background, with some washi tape for good measure




Layout is kept quite simple with the white background and splattering of chipboard and wooden veneer embellishments

6 years



I has created a layout that reflects the action in the photos, by using lots of misting and bright primary colours

So for all those scrapbookers with boys out there…get the latest ECHO PARK ranges specifically designed for boys! Available at Anna’s Craft Cupboard

I have been creating with the gorgeous NEW range from Kaisercraft…75 Cents, that was sent sent to me in my Anna’s Craft Cupboard DT kit.

The awesome vintage tones and designs make for easy co-ordinating with any type of photos, but especially perfect for masculine layouts due to its greens and browns, but then just as great for feminine layouts due to the butterfly elements throughout the range.




“SPRING 2012”
