Design Team Inspiration - [Echo Park] For The Record 2

Hello everyone! 
For the record, I’m back with another project to inspire you.
[Echo Park] 
FOR THE RECORD 2 Collection 

 this beautiful paper collection is so inspiring.
 simply irresistible…simply fabulous...

Reminds me of some cherish photos 
that is just perfect for this paper collection…love it!
I also have a thing with circles these days 
so I decided to make my layout a circle scallop. 

  Simply ME

Hand cut a blue cardstock into circle scallop. 
And who says corner dies are only meant for square corners? 

In this layout, I used Cheerylynn Design Lace Corner Deco F die 
and the yellow pattern paper from the same collection 
as border around my circle scallop layout to give it a unique look.

Used double sided foam adhesive to add dimension on the center circle in the layout.

 Mat the photo with a dark blue pattern paper from the collection. 

The flowers were made using Sizzix Tattered Floral die. I simply love making them…
Die-cut some leaves and flourishes,
then arrange/glued them at the bottom of the photo 
above a border punch strip of pattern papers. 
Added pearls here and there…
place a title on a tag and the rest of bits & pieces. 
Simply page is done.

Product/technique tip: 
Look at your dies and try to use it in a different way just like I did 
and match it with Echo Park Papers ‘For the Record 2’.
It surely will add some stylish flair and interest to your page. 
Experiment and enjoy!
