Echo Park A Boy's Life LO by Laura C

Have you seen the brand new Echo Park in Cutter's Creek?!!

This LO was done using the new "A Boy's Life" collection....I
thought this was a perfect way to's definitely NOT
just for little kids! It has some great paper designs! Great
for cards too! This page used 2 of the patterned papers from
this kit....several of the stickers, and the orange alpha on
the 2nd page are from the kit too! Always soooo much in these
kits....a great value for sure!

Here's a close up of some of the stickers....and a few metal
gears I threw in there for embellishment from my stash...

And if you see the close up of that raised dot paper....
that's the Core d'nations Cosmo Cricket pack....
and guess what, I found!! This cardstock goes with
this Echo Park kit perfectly!!

And can I tell ya...I have so many "old"
plain chipboard letters....what?? You do too?!!
LOL....seems those old supplies get lost in the
shuffle sometimes. I've decided to USE this
stuff this year!! I used a gear embossing folder,
then used Distress Ink in Black Soot (chipboard
takes distress ink REALLY well!) and then brushed
that with an Adirondack Paint Dabber to give the
look of metal gears (like the ones in my pics). Just
think of all you could do with this....emboss with
snowflakes, ink in blue (or RED!!) and brush with
a Snow Cap paint dauber, you could emboss with
anything, and do any color.....soooo many ideas for
this technique!

And here's a close up of those letters....

And one final peek at the full LO.....
