Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday! Today we’re going to spotlight the Holly Jolly Christmas collection – a fun and whimsical collection by Echo Park. I’m going to share with you a couple of different projects I made using that collection, I’ll give you details about this week’s give-away, aaaaand, I’m going to announce the winner from last week’s Freebie Friday!
Echo Park is another company that I was first “introduced” to at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association Trade Show) in Chicago this past summer. I had never heard of them before either and didn’t really own any of their product. What I immediately loved about their company is that all their products are released in collections – while you can buy the papers and accessories separately, they put together a “kit” for ALL of their collections. I personally love working with collections because it makes coordinating various products and elements so easy.
Our video below will give you a closer look:
Today I’ve created a few projects with this collection. The first, is the Merry and Bright Christmas Card picture below. It uses a combination of patterned papers and incorporates other elements such as buttons, ribbon and twine. The main focal point uses a sticker from the Element sheet included in the collection. You can watch a free video tutorial on how this card was created here.
The second project I created using this collection is this Holiday Note Pad Holder. It is sized to fit the 3 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ note pads we carry in the Sunny Stampin’ Store. The covers were created out of chipboard and it’s hinged at the top. There is a ribbon loop to hold the pen in place, and a silver elastic cord closure to keep it closed. There is a video tutorial and pdf handout available in Paper Crafter’s Library for members only. If you are a member of Paper Crafter’s Library, please click HERE to wach the video tutorial.
