Projects Created with For the Record by Echo Park

There’s a great site called Sketches4All that I visit frequently. The people there are great and the challenges are a lot of fun! Well, I won SGOTM (Sketch Girl of the Month) for March and Fia sent me Echo Park’s new For the Record paper pack! When it arrived early this month, I was soooo excited! The papers are vibrant and beautifully designed, which is no surprise if you’re familiar with Echo Park’s wonderful, high-quality papers. The paper pack comes with twelve 12×12 double sided papers, one 12×12 element sticker sheet and one 12×12 alphabet sticker sheet. Of the twelve cardstock papers, there are 2 that have a pattern on one side and the other side is divided into four 6×6 sections…perfect for cards and tags! There’s another sheet that is patterned on one side and has cutout border strips on the other and lastly, there is one sheet that has a pattern on one side and cutout journaling cards on the other side. They really thought of everything! I loved working with this fabulous paper pack. Thank you Fia!!!

So far, I made one layout, one card and one tag. I still have at least 5 sheets that I haven’t cut into yet and plenty of scraps for several projects. I adore the diecut sticker images that come with this set too! I’ve set most of those aside for a journal I’ll be working on later this month. 😀

This is a tag I created for Michelle’s challenge group on the site. It’s based on the first April tag sketch and features a diecut sticker that I turned into a ribbon slider by making a couple of simple cuts:

This card was created for the rolled paper technique challenge in Khristen’s group using the colors Rosey posted for a challenge. The handmade flower was very easy to make and I hope to post a tutorial on it in the future, along with other flowers I’ve made on past projects:

This layout was based on Fia’s first April challenge for the Get Sketchy group. All stitching is done by hand since I do not have a sewing machine:
