Product Spotlight & Freebie Friday: Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Collection….Enter to Win! + Winners of Last Week’s Freebie Friday

*Scroll to the bottom of this post to see last week’s Freebie Friday Winner*

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.

  1. One paper crafting item I am hoping to see under the tree this year is The Cinch by We R Memory Keepers! Hoping the hubby comes through on this wish!

  2. OMG, this collection is adorable!! Okay, so what one paper crafting item would I love to see under the tree…just one?? Hmmm….perhaps a year’s subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library would be the ticket! Yeah, that’s the one! 🙂

  3. Fun and fabulous collection- great projects! If I could only see one paper crafting item under the tree- oh my (I could only find one if I bought it for myself-LOL!). But I would love the new giant pro sizzix machine! Oh the projects I could do!

  4. LOVE LOVE this collection!!! Now what would I like for christmas……. so hard to choose so much I would love to get, but would love more paper, could never have too much paper

  5. Oooh! I love this collection. I have actually already bought and used some of the patterned paper to make my own advent calendar. It’s so fun and bright! Thanks for the chance to win the kit!
    ANY paper crafting item would be welcome, but if I had to choose just one to find under the tree, it would be some type of scoring board. There are quite a few on the market, but I don’t have one yet!

  6. That is so cute…I want one of each…..Now what do I want Santa to bring me? I think it would have to be a subscription to the Paper Crafter’s Library. I could dream all night about the projects in the pages.

  7. What a fantastic collection. Having everything put together for you in a collection makes figuring out all the coordinating pieces a whole lot easier. Wow, only one paper crafting item under the tree…how can I pick just one when there are sooo many to pick from. What would be the ideal gift for me would be a very large Visa gift card to buy everything thing I want, LOL. But if I had to narrow it down, I would say more Copic markers to add to my very small collection.

  8. Well you really got me in the holiday mood, out comes the crafting gear lol . Thank you for inspiring me

  9. I would love a papercutter for Christmas. I have the fiskers type which is great for traveling around but the guillotine type is what I would prefer. Thanks for the chance to win.

  10. U REALLY WANT ME TO WRITE IN THIS SMALL BOX WHAT I WANT FOR CRAFTING ROOM. COME BE SERIOUS. The thing i want most has to be grand calibur.

  11. Love this collection from Echo Park…So bright and cheerful. Thanks for offering the chance to win.

  12. I LOVE the paper and all the embelishments…the colors are so vibrant…I would like to have any gift card to use for ALL the “stuff” that I just cannot live without in my crafting supplies….thank you for the opportunity to enter your contest. Jan

  13. Love the new collection. I would love to find more Spellbinders under the tree. Good luck everyone!

  14. I love this collection.. so bright and cheerful.. thank you for posting and giving us chances to win!! Jeannie

  15. It is on my wish list, a year’s subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library. Thanks for the chance 😀

  16. I would like the Grand Calibur under my tree this year! Thanks for all the videos and samples that you post and enjoyed by all!


  17. Fantastic collection of papers and embellishments! and a chance to win. I love all your tutorials and all the tips you pass on. What inspiration as well. I would like to see more ‘time’ under my tree! Too much to craft and not enough time to accomplish it! Keep the ideas coming and for you, i wish continued success!

  18. What fantastic papers I love the quirky christmas theme in non-tradtional colours. I get so sick of red/green combos all the time. Thank you for the chance to win. I love looking at these reviews Saturaday morning with a cup of tea, it a great way to start the day.
    Megan NZ

  19. I love any Christmas paper collection. I love how willing you are to share your tips and projects. I would love a chance to win. Thank you.

  20. I love this set of paper and cordinating stickers and embellishments and I love how you show us how to use thhem on our projects! Thank you for sharing your wonderful gift of stamping!!!

  21. What an adorable Christmas set! If I could pick one item…either a Cricut 2 (yea, right) or a Sizzix Big Shot (again, yea, right). Money is tight this year, so we are skipping adult presents and focusing on the kids and making sure they have what they want. Happy Holidays to each of you!

  22. Beautiful colors and I love the package with everything you need! Thanks for entering me in yet another great contest!

  23. I want some lovely cabinets for my goodies. I have a huge closet that is running over…on my desk, my table, the china cabinet, shelves, in boxes on the floor…
    I love the traditional colors for Christmas, but I want my friends to remember the reason for the season. God bless all readers. I shall pray to win….if it is in God’s plan for me.

  24. Very cute collection and your projects are great! Thanks so much for the chance! This year I would love to see any Tim Holtz die under the tree, but I have to say I would also be thrilled with the Spellbinders Presto Punch 😉

  25. After watching some of your videos, I really got interested on the Silhouette cutting machine. I wish for one under my Christmas tree!!! I promise I’ll be good : )

  26. Echo Park collection is so cute and Christmassy; love it. Thanks for the chance to win twice!! You are awesome

  27. What a great way to celebrate the season and start the fun of the holidays. All your ideas really help make the products go farther and make a bright bold statement.

  28. I absolutely love the tutorials! That’s how I learn to do my cardmaking. I have subscribed to your site for a long time and look forward to every newsletter and new things to learn. Under my tree I would like cardmaking gift subscriptions so I could pick out the products I need. Thanks

  29. I wish for a year’s subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library and anything to do with paper and stamp crafting under my tree.

  30. I would love Santa to leave me some Storage drawers, Scor Pal and buttons and ribbons and the ‘doctor bag’ for my Sizzix Big Shot.

  31. Great paper pack! Love the colors! I’d have t say if I could have anything under my tree it would be a basket of all those little things I think are neat and haven’t bought yet — the powder bottle to remove adhesive, the jewel picker-upper, liquid tombo, finger exacto knife, and I bunch of other little stuff I ew and aw about all the time!

  32. This kit is just too cute. However, as I stated on Facebook, I have been blessed with so much. If I win, this will be wrapped and put under our tree as a gift to someone else. Maybe my mom, sister, or someone much more deserving than me. Maybe to a child who has never experience paper crafting. I know I would’ve absolutely loved receiving something like this as a kid. Anyway, thanks for giving us 2 shots at winning!! Happy Thanksgiving!

  33. So festive and so much fun Andrea!! I especially love the wee chipboard accents. As for Santa’s paper crafting gift…I am pretty much of the opinion…any paper crafting gift is a good one!! The gift of creativity and inspiration is one that lasts all the year thru. I sincerely hope that yourself and Sophia have some left under your tree. ooxx

  34. This paper is so bright – I love the addition of pink and blue to the traditional colours.
    I’m hoping that Santa brings a seasonal Cricut cartridge that’s on my wish list. This kit would be a nice incentive to scrapbook some past christmas photos.
    Thank so much for the chance to win and for your generousity.

  35. I need storage and a new crafting desk AND a 10 minute shopping spree to run threw Sizzix’ warehouse! 🙂

  36. I would love to see some more Spellbinder dies under neath my christmas tree this year; they are just so versatile and give your cards that little extra. I love the techinques and cards you put out everyweek for us and does wonders for my card making as sometimes I just have no inspiration on what to do; I just have to look at your cards and away I go. Tks for the chance to win.

  37. Under the tree this year, I would like to see a Silhouette or a new sanding kit. A subscription to PaperCrafters would be a big hit too!!

  38. I am from downunder, and I love what you both do, you share,create and inspire me too. I love your tutorials they are just great, the holly jolly collection are just beautifull. And under my christmas tree I would love to have a Grand Calibur just for me,

  39. I’d love to see the purple Big Shot Pro under my tree… but the only way it will get there is if I order it! But sadly that probably isn’t going to happen.

  40. I LOVE any paper with houses on it. That’s my latest fad. This is a very cute card. I really look forward to your projects and tutorials. I would like the Silhouette under the tree this year, as well astime to play with it. Thanks for your inspiration!

  41. Wow! That’s a LOVELY set. I have seen some like it and would LOVE to win this one. Just in time for Christmas!!

  42. Love Echo Park and the projects that you made. I would wish for a free subscription to papercraft library.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  43. I love love love this paper collection.. it sort of reminds me of Cosmo Cricket – so fun and whimsical.. I love it!!! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Thank YOU for all the wonderful inspiration throughout the year! You guys rock!

  44. I would love to have a “room” dedicated to stamping–not sure if that would fit under the tree–LOL. I am tired of sharing wth a guest bedroom and the toy room. Nice projects today.

  45. What a great collection, it’s so fun, makes me smile. I would love to have a Silhoutte under the tree. Thanks for the chance to win.

  46. Your card is so sweet and I love the Holiday Note Pad Holder! This is my first time seeing this paper collection, too, so I really appreciate your review and being able to see it up close. Thank you for the opportunity to win it!

    I would love to have a Silhouette under my Christmas tree this year.

  47. OMG beautiful paper. Love the projects also.
    I guess I would like to get a Xyron to make stickers and adhesive strips, stuff like that.

  48. What a fabulous collection and some really great projects. Would love Santa to leave me some storage drawers for my stamps and growing paper collection. Thanks for the great project video and the chance to win the collection. You always inspire me to dive into my stash and be creative 🙂

  49. What a great Christmas kit, you have made great projects to inspire us! I want to take my scrapbook out and do some Christmas layouts! As far as something under the tree that I would like; I tell my family that I would be happy with anything they would like to get me to support my scrapbooking and cardmaking addiction; anything from magazines, to paper, to punches, to stamps, anything!!!

  50. I would love to see the Big Shot under my tree for Christmas this year. I tend to visit friend`s to use theirs since I am without. I also wanted to say, keep up the good work on your creativity and all your fantastic products!

  51. This one is easy! I would LOVE to see a Sizzix Vagabond under the tree. Sigh. Happy thoughts….

  52. Love the colours in this collection and enjoy your e-mails all the time.
    I look forward to them.
    Thanks so much

  53. This is an easy one! I’d love a subscription to your library to be under my tree! Thanks for the chance to win – I love Echo Park, and this collection is so much fun! Have a good week 🙂

  54. I love this Echo Park line….so cute!
    I would love to see anything scrapbook related under the tree this year 🙂


  55. I just love this christmas collection…christmas cards are my favourite cards to make…I would love to win this collection

  56. Love everything you do, My two great granddaughters (5 & 7) love to sit with me and watch your videos – we head to the card room following the video and see what we can do. Nothing like starting them young.
    I would love anything that has to do with card making.. Thanks for your inspiration.

  57. Really appreciate your great ideas, although snow and ice on cards does seem a little strange to us down here in NZ!
    Would love a really good paper cutter that clearly showed measurements for different sized cuts, would make things so much easier!

  58. I love all of your projects, you’re so creative. I would like a cricut if I had to choose.

  59. Thanks for the videos you freely share with us! I am not familiar with Echo Park, but after your introduction to this collection, I might become a fan. It looks like a well-coordinated set of embellishments and papers. I especially like the bright, cheery colors and patterns. Maybe I will be the lucky winner this week!

  60. A Tonic guillotine paper cutter would certainly make cardmaking and scrapbooking a lot easier. How about it, Santa?

  61. Love that collection and the cards are super cute!
    I would love to find a whole bunch of Spellbinders Nestibilities under
    my Christmas Tree. I only have a couple of them, and would love to
    have a bit more variety!

  62. thank you for your awesome videos I watch them every time they get posted also thank you for the opportunity to give us a chance to win..

  63. I love Echo Park there collections are just awesome. Seeing the above comment I would have to say a paper cutter that actually cuts straight all the time would be a real treat under the tree. I have tried everything and they may start off good but all cutters seem to end up cutting crooked. It is very frustrating and it sure is a paper waster. I love my papercrafting and I love all my tools my favourites are my cricuit, big shot and my punches. They all add so much to what a person is making. Papercrafting is a rewarding hobby and I love it.

  64. I too am loving Echo Parks collections. How cool of you to showcase them here. I just discovered them at a class at CKC Seattle a few weeks ago. I would love to find a 12″ wide electronic die cutter – Silhouette or Cricut under my tree. I love the things I’ve seen you all do here with the large format cutters.. I have the smaller die cutters – Big Shot, original Silhouette, and Grand Caliber and love them. But if you’re going to dream you migt as well dream big! 🙂

  65. Hello again Andrea & Sophia: I must thank both of you for all the wonderful ideas I have found on your site. And just how much fun are those papers, what wonderful projects you show for them. I would really love to win the set. Thanks again for all your hard work to help all of us out here. Ann Geoghegan.

  66. I am always so inspired by everything I see on your blog and through the Paper Crafter’s library emails. There are so many wonderful things, new all the time, that I would like to add to my collection. I think the top of my list would be either a BigShot or a Grand Caliber. I have a Slice, but would love to use some of the great nestabilities dies and embosslits out there on the market also. Happy stamping!!! Nanci

  67. This is a great versitile collection. I love to create from sets or kits as you are able to create many things from one kit. I am enjoying your blog and the things you create each and every week. I would love to win this kit.

  68. If I could wish for one thing, it would be (OK maybe this would be considered more than one) but one box full of card making supplies..cardstock, rub ons, die cuts and an instruction manual. I would be in card heaven. The Echo Park products are waaay cute.

  69. WOW! Just love all the crafts,even my teenage girl loves to do these crafts. OK! I would like to see under my christmas tree is a year subscription or any of your beautiful collections that I can share with my girl…

  70. I would love to see my preorder from the Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Mini!. I love so much out of that catalog. Thank you for sharing!
    Karen Kurz

  71. Adorable paper combo! So much fun.

    I have to say that if I could choose one thing, I don’t know if it counts, but I would love a nice, new, clean desk with all it’s parts (mine is missing drawers). I would just like all of my stuff organized and matching!

  72. I would love to see a new silhouette cameo under the tree this year! I have been a fan of Echo Park for a while and their new releases never disappoint.

  73. This paper is so adorable! Congratulations Norean for winning the last give away – I’m hoping for a win this week! I think I would love to give Copic markers a try, so I’d love to see some under my tree. Keep up the terrific job you are doing, Andrea. I love all your tutorials.

  74. Even though I thought it was such a cheat in card crafting, I am now totally wanting a Silhouette Cameo. I don’t think that’s something Santa will bring, so will just have to save my own pennies! In the interim, it’s so great to have the inspiration provided by so many gifted crafters like yourself–and the generous giveaways that can only add to one’s creative stash.

  75. I would love to win this product but really want to just thank you for this new feature of sharing products that you have found. I think the idea is fabulous and will really make me want to try new things and will help me with those choices. Thanks so much.

  76. what an adorable paper collection. Wow, if I could have one paper craft item under the tree it would have to be Zutter Bind It All. I’ve always wanted to make my very own books. And crafts stores in our area seem not to carry them.

  77. This is a wonderful site! I would love it if Santa would bring me some more Stamp N Write markers from Stampin’ Up!

  78. I would like more spellbinders and sizzix dies, cricut cartridges and a subscription to the Paper Crafters Library.

  79. I love this holiday collection and your videos are absolutely wonderful. I just found Paper Crafters Library week before last and I am sooooo enjoying watching your videos. I have already learned so much! Thank you for sharing your talent. I was so excited about your SU tutorials so was disappointed that you won’t be doing those anymore. But, I do understand your reasoning. Now, for what I want under the tree for Christmas…. I’m thinking that a gift certificate to Stampin Up would be wonderful. The upcoming Occasions Mini is to die for!

  80. 4 kids, 2 dogs, and household to run keeps me busy. I wish Santa was magic and could bring me TIME to devote to paper crafts! I’m relatively new to paper crafting and I’m hopelessly addicted!

  81. I would like another Creative Memories 12×12 album. I like theirs the best for my scrapbooking.

  82. awesome bright colors for christmas…going for a new look this season, away from the traditional forest green and dk red with gold…looking forward to decorate with these papers…i love that you are spotlighting new products withgorgeous innovative ideas to use them…need a set of spellbinders to go with them!

  83. The Holly Jolly Christmas Collection is so full of fun – perfect for the christmas season. I love bright and cheery christmas papers and strive to make my cards with this in mind and how perfect would this collection be?! The one papercraft item i would love under the tree is a scor-pal. I never really thought it necessary until a friend lent me theirs to have a play with. And play i did. I was gobsmacked at how much faster and easier it was to make my projects – both cards and 3d items. So please santa if you are reading this remember my scor-pal this year…. pretty please!

  84. What a great group of products! I love how everything coordinates and all comes in just three packages. The possibilities seem endless! Thanks for introducing us to this great product and offering us the chance to try it out for FREE!!

  85. I don’t know Echo Park collection but It seems to be a beautiful collection : a rich collection of many things : papers; stickers & brads !!
    Andrea, thank you for the chance you give us to win it ! Wow, the gift you can offer is fabulous too, I love it !

  86. I would like more storage for my stamping goodies, primarily cardstock. I love to stamp, and when I don’t have time to stamp, I love buying stamps. Over the years I’ve accumulated many beautiful things but I struggle with how to store them so I can access what I need when I need it. Alas, I know I will never have a crafting room. Therefore, I would love a storage unit that kept cardstock corners crisp and had many sections for different colors.

  87. I just love Echo Park, and your projects are just the best! What item would I like to find under the Christmas tree this year–well, a subscription to the Paper Crafter’s Library would be really cool!

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    Chris L.

  88. Having seen your video with the Spellbinders Grand Caliber butting and embossing system I would Love Love to see one of these under my tree.

  89. I would love to see the Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Collection under the tree. Being new to stamping and card-making, I had no idea such products were available. Everything I have received from the Sunny Stampin store has been fabulous, so I can only imagine how wonderful this product looks in person! Truly appreciate your tutorials, your kits, and web classes. All instructions on how to make a particular paper craft project or cards are explained thoroughly.

  90. I’ve just discovered Echo Park as well – think that I’ll be buying lots of it in the coming months! I would love to see a heat tool for embossing under the tree this year.

  91. I can’t pick just one thing for under my tree to craft with but for you I will. I would love to have the Silhouette Cameo! Oh what I could do with it.

    The Holly Jolly christmas collection is very awesome, this would make lots of very cool cards for Christmas too.

    Thank you for the great video, they are so very helpful.

  92. Oh my….just one item under the tree?!! Well, my papercrafting item won’t fit under the tree. I really want my own stamping studio instead of sharing it with the spare bedroom guests and the corner of my husband’s ‘man cave’. But since I know this wish won’t come true, I would love to get my hands on a Grand Caliber so that I can play with some of the Grand Spellbinders dies.

    Love the projects you created with the Holly Jolly Christmas collection….would love to play with this kit, too. Thanks for all of your inspiration!

  93. I love love LOVE this collection.. soo very cute. Love the projects too. What I would like under my tree…I would like to find a Sillhouette under my tree, or some Spellbinders nestability dies.

  94. Storage and organization is what’s needed, for all the stuff that I’ve already got in my craft space.
    Thanks for the chance to win.

  95. This paper is just to fun. Love the Note pad holders – I’m thinking I might just have to make a few of those and send to my out of town family with the box of gifts next month. Usually send some handmade ornaments but those look like they might be more fun for this year. Scrapbooking Gift under my tree – That has to be the Silhouette Cameo. I have been so good about not upgrading my Silhouette original machine but the new one looks like it needs to come to my home soon. I am hoping to get it by mid next year (as with most of you our Christmas is a light one and more about the kids. I’m saving my pennies for my special needed tool!) Have a great one – Dianne

  96. This paper is so cheery and bright! I would like a subscription to the Paper Crafters Library! Thanks for the opportunity to win.

  97. Oh I love that set and would love to have it! One thing under my tree that no one will get me–a subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library! If that wouldn’t do, I’d settle for some Christmas or winter themed die cuts for my Big Shot. 🙂

  98. What I am in desperate need of is a craft storage system that I can close up to hide the “projects in progress.” With limited space, storage is always a challenge. and the using my dining room table means constantly packing stuff up after every crafting session. Sure wish Santa could find the perfect storage system to get my stamping projects under control!

  99. Love this collection, so bright and happy looking! For Christmas I would love to have someone come and help me organize my my crafting supplies. I would make better use of my time and efforts if everything was better organized. Starting and stopping to look for things is a big waste of time and I need help with that! Thanks for the chance to win this great package!

  100. I would love for Santa to bring me some new Cricut cartridges…I have been searching e-bay for him!! I’d love to have The Doctors bag too!!

  101. I think it would have to be some type of die cut machine. I keep thinking how much fun having one of those would be. One of these days…

  102. wow, what a great paper design, this would be a wonderful collection for this holiday season!

  103. Oh I love Echo Park paper, what a great collection. I would love to find a Silhouette Cameo under my tree although any scrappy item would be great. I also want to say I have so enjoyed my Paper Crafter’s Library subscription you and Sohpie do such a great job. Thank you very much.

  104. What a great collection of papers. What I would love to find under my tree a subscription to Papers Crafters Library. Thank you for all the great projects you share.

  105. Oh the Echo Park set is so bright and cheery! Love the colors. As for under the tree, I always love stamps and spellbinders dies! Oh and Sizzix!

  106. I enjoy all the techniques you have shown. I love the look of this Echo Park. Would love to be entered to win

  107. Love your projects & videos!! Thanks so much! The Echo Park Christmas line is so cute! Like the previous comment, I would love to find a Paper Crafters subscription under my tree this year!! What an added bonus it would be to my creating process & world!

  108. I am in love with this collection and would be so very excited to win it. If I wanted only one machine under the Christmas tree, it would have to be the Large Cuttlebug that handles 12X12 paper. Thank you so much for the chance to win.

  109. I would love a Sizzix Big Shot – I saw one of these in action a few months ago and as soon as I saw all the things it can do I knew I needed one. However being a stay at home Mum and a single income family, it will be a long time before I will be able to afford to buy my own. In the meantime I will just have get more friendly with a friend of a friend who has one!

  110. Love this paper, especially the snowflakes. I LOVE snowflakes, whether its stamps, die cuts, paper or the real thing. Call me crazy but I actually enjoy shoveling snow!! Thank you for all your terrific ideas, projects and chances to win great collections.

  112. That’s easy….a subscription for a year of Paper Crafter’s Library….don’t know what I’d do without your ideas!

  113. I would cry if I found a Grand Caliber. While I have several die cutting systems, I am crazy about the large die options offered with this system. I have dropped a hint to Santa. Wish me luck… I have been very good this year.

  114. Doubling my chances hopefully! 🙂 Thanks for another chance!! Anyhoo – my fave products on my wish list are more cartridges for my cricut or new wafer dies for my Big Shot.

  115. Wow how beautiful! Im still fairly new to paper crafting and this set looks amazing for creating homemade christmas gifts, thank you for giving us the chance to win this lovely batch of goodness!


  116. I’d love to get more of the spellbinders dies for my big shot and/or as many punches from Stampin’ up as I can carry! Thanks for the opportunity to win this awesome collection – it would definitely be put to good use for my Christmas cards this year! Can never have enough selection of beautiful papers to choose from!

  117. I would love a subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library for Christmas! I have really enjoyed each project I have made following you lovley ladies tutorials and inspiration my cards are looking very ‘polished’ and professional thanks to you two!
    Hugs from France,
    Donna 🙂

  118. Glad to see you have so many followers. The Echo Park Holly Jolly Christmas Collection is so much fun and seems to live up to it’s name. The two craft items you made are right on time for the holiday. The first craft item would be great for 2011 holiday card giving and the second craft item would be great for small gifts for my kids school teachers, piano instructors, Sunday School teachers, and etc. Thanks for sharing your joy of crafting with us.

  119. I love Echopark! I keep saying I have enough paper, but Echo Park just makes it SO HARD to live up to that! I gotta say….it would be great for under my tree, and I would love to have some spellbinders under my tree, and well, there is just not enough time to write down EVERYTHING I’d like, but I will just be content with what I have!

  120. A magic craft cleaning fairy – to put everything back after I have crafted as I seem to spend more time trying to find my craft space than actually crafting!

  121. I think my heart would literally melt to pieces if I found a Silhouette Machine under my tree. That thing looks amazing.
    Ever since I started card making in Jan 2011 I found that paper crafting has become a major addiction/obsession to me. I literally spend every weekend at Michaels using a coupon to buy something. So if I saw products that they do not have at Michaels, I’d probably fall in love with it in a heartbeat!
    Thanks for posting a Freebie Friday!

  122. Thank you for making papercrafting so much more fun! You have great ideas that makes me have a desire to use the techniques that you are using or applying. Thanks for sharing that with us. I feel blessed to have this information via the Internet. I learn so much in this way…..!

  123. I luv echo park,and this collection is no exception. Very Cute and luv those colors!! It’s hard to answer to your question; ONE papercrafting item…hmm… there are soo too many out there! LOL, but my next planned purchase is “Crop-a- dile”, so this is what i really want under the tree this year! 🙂

  124. I hope Santa gets me the entire Holly Jolly collection for Christmas this year! I absolutely LOVE Echo Park! And the Holly Jolly collection is so fun and whimsical. There are so many fun projects that I want to make using the entire collection. I hope I win! 🙂

  125. Love the new kit Merry and Bright the name speaks volumes of the kit. Now if you could pick one paper crafting item you’d like to see under the tree this year, what would it be? It would be a subscription to Paper crafters Library so I could access the members only patterns.


  126. Wow, what a wonderful collection and what wonderful projects you created with it. The notepad holder is just gorgeous. Love the details about it. Thanks for sharing that inspiration.

  127. All i want to find under my Xmas tree Sillouete, papers, stamps and tim holtz inks… That all. I really love your papers!! Thanks for the chance to win…

  129. Wow this collection paper are gorgeous!!! Love it!!!! And the projects are so beautiful too!!! Thanks for the inspiration!!! I would like to see under my christmas tree is differents ornaments made with this collection paper of Echo Parck, like Santas, Snowman, or whatever another thing of christmas!!! Hugs.. Maggy 🙂

  130. I love this kit. It’s awesome. Thank you for your inspiration and a chance of winning this great kit.

  131. Love, love, love this paper collection. My Santa wish list would be anything paper crafting, but more importantly a membership to Papercrafter’s Library. I love the communication and sharing you two bring to this site. Your projects are inspiring and cause me to pause and try them. I’ve learned so much and my paper crafting creativity has grown thanks to you. I so enjoy receiving emails when there is something new to share. Thank you!

  132. I love to see you ideas and creativity each week. You give so much inspiration to us all. I think if i could find one item under my tree it would be a large paper cutter. I have found myself cutting mulitple papers on my trimmer and just think what i could do with a big cutter. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your contests.

  133. I love your website. I get a lot of ideas from there. I would love to have a circuit 2 or a binding machine.

  134. Thanks, for introducing this line to me it looks like alot of fun, I’d love to play with it. My Sister and I make cards together and would love to play with this set ! I would like Santa to bring me lots of cardstock and he could throw in a Cricuit too….Love your videos keep up the great work 🙂

  135. I would love to see the Cricut Expression 2 under my tree…but I am not choosey anything at all would do!

  136. Hmmm, only one thing — then of course it would be “anything, and I mean anything” that is vintage!! Now that was a short and sweet response wasn’t it — doesn’t take me long to make up my mind. Thank you as always for allowing us to play the game (see we are all kids at heart).

  137. I love this collection by Echo Park. This is one card I will try and recreate. You make everything look so easy with your videos. I like that I see how it’s done rather than just read how to do it. I need visual to create. I just love this Holly Jolly Collection. I would love to have this set so when I start making my special cards in two weeks, I have something special to add. I have been a member of your Paper Crafters from day one and would never turn back. I love it.

    Thanks Andrea.

  138. I love the paper collection! But I love paper in general. I am sure Santa will put something crafty under my tree this year! I put a Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher on my list…

  139. I am glad I joined because your ideas and projects are endless and help me come up with some of my own…who would have ever guessed I would enjoy this so much

  140. Andrea, love your project and all your wonderful ideas. Thank you again for sharing.
    If I could have 1 item under my tree it would be a years subscription to your Paper Crafters Library.
    Thank you again, Darlene

  141. Wow, it’s hard to pick just one papercrafting product that I’d want to see under my tree. But if I had to narrow it down, I think I’d say some Spellbinders dies and some more stamps. I am a total stampaholic! I really like the Cover-a-card stamps from Impression Obsession. This is a really cute collection! Love some of the untraditional colors. Thanks for the chance to win!

  142. What a cute collection – I love the chipboard pieces! It’s so hard to pick one crafting item I’d like under my tree. I think I’d have to pick an assortment of Nesties. I just got started collecting them and only have a couple so far.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win this fabulous collection!

  143. Love these projects! You give me such inspiration! One crafting item under the tree….hmmm… most likely all Spellbinder dies… but it’s a toss up between that and the year’s subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library! I look forward to your videos!

  144. I love the collection of papers and embellishments. So many possibilities with those. Thanks for the awesome video. You also make things very clear and easy to follow in them. Thanks for giving us all chances to win things we normally wouldn’t have. Thanks again so very much.

  145. Andrea, you always inspire me. I would love a year or more subscription to the Paper Crafter’s Library. That is all I would need for my crafting needs. Thanks for all your help.

  146. Lovely ideas and very inspiring! I would love to get my hands on a shelf for storage in my craft room. Thanks for the giveaway. 🙂

  147. I love Echo Park. Their collections are so colorful and happy.
    The tool I would most like to have would be a binder and all the covers and spines that go with it. I think that would be a fun new toy, uh, tool.
    Your card and memo holder are so cute. Thanks for all the great ideas you all have shared.

  148. What a wonderful idea to have the collection in kit form. One or two (I’m not greedy, just love it all!) of the kits would be the best thing to find under the Christmas tree this year. Then I would need some shelving to store all my papers, punches, stamps and stamp pads, glues, tape, ribbons in.

  149. Love the colors and your ideas. Can’t wait to try the holiday note pad. Keep up the great work.

  150. This is the first time I have viewed “Echo Park” but I hope not the last! You and your sister always give so much that we are inspired. We get so psyched we want to run right out, ignore everything else, and begin. Thanks for all the fun!

  151. I just love everything Christmas! I’ve been making my Christmas cards for the last several years. This year I chose to use 2 of your kits to get me started. They turned out beautifully if I do say so myself! Thanks for the inspiration! The papers etc. in the give a way would definitely provide the perfect final few cards for this year.

  152. Have started to become a big fan of Echo Park, have brought Echo Park Digital papers, and they are FAB!! Great project and video tutorial using the Jolly Christmas Collection. Would love to win, thanks for the chance!

  153. sorry, forgot to mention what one thing I would like under my tree: It would have to be the complete Echo ParK Collection Ranges!

  154. So many paper crafter items and soooo little time to play with them. One that would save me time would be the Cricut Expression. It wouldn’t take up too much room under the tree either! We would have more room for other paper crafting toys and cartridges. 🙂

  155. Oh my goodness, I love it!!!! I used another companies paper and embellies to make some Christmas cards but they were just a little funky in their colors (more like lime green and dark pink). I would love to create some wonderful gifts with this weeks prize.

  156. I LOVE this collection. Love the colours, the cute cut outs. I would love to find anything to do with card making/scrapbooking from Santa. Love all the tutorials also. Thanks.

  157. I’m hoping Santa will bring the Serif letters for my Big Shot!!! But what I REALLY need is a room/organization makeover!!!

  158. I live in a small town called Keswick.We have no scrapbook stores and I usually have to drive 20 mins to the nearest town for a “Michaels” store.A friend introduce me to Echo Park paper a year ago and I fell in love with it! Only thing is, I can’t find it anywhere where I live. Having this as a gift would be so exciting and fabulous for me! I have learned so much from subscribing to your e-mail tutorials and also from joining facebook. I can’t wait to see what you will be offering in 2012

  159. I would love to see a Silhouette under my tree this year. Actually any card making supplies would make me very happy.

  160. I have been making scrapbooks for gifts and I have found quite a few pretty pattern themes for christmas but I hadn’t seen this one yet! It’s very pretty and my hubby just asked me yesterday what I wanted for Christmas and I couldn’t come up with anything sooooo…. I’m checking out paper packs, dies, etc to see what I want from Santa! I hope Santa gets presents thru Echo Park!!!! Love it.

  161. Awesome paper! I love all of the colors and how you used the embellishments to make the projects. TFS.

  162. I have just started card making in the past few months. I have really improved since I found this blog. I have been encouraged by family and friends to start selling them. I would most like a subscription to the Paper Crafter’s Library to learn new techniques and inspiration! Happy Crafting!

  163. What a cute Christmas collection! I would love more spellbinders and a paper crafter can never have enough paper!!! 🙂

  164. WOW! I love this paper collection, may have to have that for furture projects. Your ideas are always awesome, thanks for sharing.

  165. I love this paper collection. I would love a Cricut machine for Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win.

  166. I will love to find a bag of embossing folders and dies because I always use my Big Shot and of course so new and nice papers.

  167. I love the collection and as others have said it is great to get back to the traditional Christmas colours!! I must admit though I do like some of the different colourways for Christmas.

  168. I love this card and would love to win all the supplies to make it. Thanks for all your creative ideas.

  169. Gorgeous little ideas you have with the too cute christmas paper 🙂
    The one crafty present i would love to see under the tree for christmas would have to be more cardstock so i can make some more fabulous cards from your blog.

  170. Even if I was not fortunate enough to win anything, I want to tell you how much I love this website and all that I have learned since I discovered. It’s like a little Christmas present each time I open the e-mail.
    Thanks so much!


  171. Today’s projects are fabulous and so is the prize!!!
    My wish for a crafting gift would be the Spellbinder Grand Calibur. I really liked its features when you presented them to us on this blog and even though I own the Big Shot, I would love the larger dies! Having just paid 700$ on car repairs, I know I won’t be the one offering this gift to myself!
    Thanks for the inpiration and givaway girls. You rock my world 😉

  172. I would love a magic wand to turn my crafting area into a Crafter’s Dream- but since I can’t have that, I would love anything to help with organizing my room- trying to fit 100 pounds of crafting things into about a 5 pound container- not enough room for everything I currently have 🙂

  173. Well, I already got my dream item, which was a Big Shot. But now I would really like the new Stampin’ Up score tool. I have the Martha Stewart store board but I used the Stampin’ Up one at a party and it seems to be easier to keep the tool in the grooves. Santa, did you hear that?

  174. Hoping Santa brings me some Grand Nestabilities… I have been a very good girl this year…:-) Thanks for the chance to win!

  175. What a cute collection this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love that its Christmas and its not RED and GREEN!!!!!!!!!!!! It has inspired me just by seeing it, it would be awesome to win tihs! Thanks so much for the chance to win!
    I hope to see some Stampin’ Up Card Stock under our Christmas Tree this year, or anything CRICUT! You can never have enough of those things!

  176. I love this collection and your blog! Also thanks for offering such a great giveaway. I would love to see either a whole collection of lawn fawn stamps or hero art stamps!

  177. Love all the grand ideas you show us. Thanks so much. Under my tree this year I hope to find a bigger papercutter to cut the 17″ width. 🙂

  178. I love the colors of the Echo Park Collection. So non-Xmas but so pretty. I would love to have a Grand
    Calibur under the tree from Santa this year. I love the idea of making cards with the larger dies. Thanks
    for all the great ideas you give us. Keep up the good work.

  179. I would love to see all of Gina K.’s stamps under my Christmas tree! Your videos are great and I enjoy them all. They really inspire me!

  180. I just found this blog and know for sure I will be visiting it often! Love this Echo Park collection!!
    As for what paper crafting item I’d love to find under the tree…maybe a collection of dies from Nestabilies, Cheery Lynn and Magnolia.

  181. Hmmmm….. One thing only????? Wow-how to choose? I think it would have to be…..more copic markers to fill up my new copic tote bag! I then would also ask for a subscription to the Crafters Library-so inspirational you are-thanks!

  182. My wish list is huge but if forced to choose, I would have to say the Spellbinders products. Thanks so much for introducing me to them! Keeping my fingers crossed for the draw, as I love the idea of collections too and will have to be on the look out for Echo Park now.

  183. I would love to see any Tim Holtz item(s) under the tree – I love his collection more and more – and he is always coming out with more exciting things – all the time. Anything in that collection would be great.

  184. This is my first year at making cards..but watching your videos give me a drive to do more things.. love the collections and cant wait to be impressed even more

  185. I really would love to have a Big Shot. I don’t feel like my Cuttlebug is going to last and the BS is a more heavy duty machine. Of course, I’d be happy with anything craft oriented. I spend all of my extra $$ on supplies. It’s an addiction!

  186. Well to be honest i would be happy with anything “crafty” – but mostly would be happy for heaps of 12 x 12 coloured textured cardstock!! i love my electronic cutter and love the american crafts cardstock.

  187. I would love the any craft product under the tree this year. I love trying new things. I would really love the spellbinder machine for my new dies I am hoping to get from Santa…. your site is amazing!!!

  188. I love how your ideas fuel one’s own creativity and the layouts etc. can so easily be duplicated on different paper projects… thanks for sharing your creativity!
    As far as your question goes… what would I like under the tree? My first choice would be a subscription to your online library! My second choice would be some crafty item that I didn’t have to buy myself… I have figured out the only way to do that is to put a few items on hold and then send my dear hubby to the craft store and let him pick out something… (it works with clothes too… and I never have to return gifts that are duplicates or don’t fit!)

  189. First your projects are just to cute love them .. than would love anything from spellbinders . i only have been able to get a couple of them so far .would really love to get more . the Grand Calibur looks great to have also .Thanks for all the ideas you have passed on to all of us , they are really great ones..

  190. Hello!

    This is a wonderful collection – so happy and fun! I just received the e-mail tutorial for the Hot Chocolate for Two project and I love it! It is my favorite of the 12 Weeks of Christmas! I will be making these as gifts this year! Thank you so much for this tutorial and for this opportunity to win a prize! I would love any card making supplies this year for Christmas – I just love making cards and projects.

    Wishing you a happy week!


    Barbara Diane

  191. Many thanks Andrea, for the opportunity to win! and many many thanks for the sharing of your creativity and talents. Much appreciated!

  192. I just found you via You Tube and am excited about your card video tutorials and giveaways! 🙂 I would love to find Teresa Collin’s Stamp Maker under my Christmas tree this year, so I could design my own stamps.

  193. glad to find your new home…I was wondering what happened to you. Thanks for the chance to win blog candy. I’d love a scoring board but what I really need is a room stretcher for more crafting space!

  194. this is a lovely paper collection, to pick a crafting item is very hard, esp one. I have seen this sold as a unit so I can classify it as one item and that would be Tim Holtz complete collection of distress inks. Love your
    work and enjoy the tutorials you are are great teacher.

  195. “if you could pick one paper crafting item you’d like to see under the tree this year, what would it be?” A stack of Pure Innocence stamps. 🙂

  196. I downloaded several of the papers and elements from Echo Park after you spotlighted it on your blog. I am very happy with their clips. My wish…that’s easy….a subscription for a year of Paper Crafter’s Library….I enjoy your ideas!

  197. There isn’t anything in particular I would like under the tree actually. Just some two sided tape would be great to make more cards because you get me thinking about so many new ideas!

  198. What cute paper! I have last years kit and loved it. The projects are awesome:) Thanks for the chance to win.


  199. What a beuatiful collection. I so love the traditional red/green Christmas colors. One thing I would love to have for Christmas would be a subscription to Paper Crafter’s Library, as you always have wonderful project ideas.

  200. What a beautiful collection. I am tempted to buy all the new and latest Christmas paper cause i love them all. To see all the projects that you gals have made with some of the collections its been very hard not to get them all. If I had to choose an item to be under my tree it would be The Cinch by We R Memory Keepers or The Grand Calibur. Would love one of those and it would be great if I won what you have in your Freebie Friday Giveaway too. Thanks for the chance to win.

  201. Love echo park papers and embellishments. The crafty item I would most like – a gift card so I could get the new batch of items that come out after Christmas.

  202. Another great video ….what I would love under the tree would be the Grand Calibur(after watching your video)…..I love my cuttlebug but I would love to be able to use some of the larger dies. Maybe Santa is listening?

  203. Love this very Christmassy collection……so festive:)
    As for what product I would like this year…hmmmmmmm…it is not necessarily a product. What I really need is to expand my craft space. That way I won’t have to haul my stuff back and forth between my dining space and my craft space several times a day. I need that precious time for crafting not to play “mover”.

  204. Wow – trying to come up with just one item that I would like to see under the tree is hard!! I guess I’d say any fun patterned papers – as I tend to not buy them as much as I would like. I love the hot chocolate holder!! I will definitely be creating a few of those this Christmas. Thanks!

  205. would love a grand caliber because it would add so much to the creativity for my cards and allow so much more to be done at a time. Been looking at it since it came out. 🙂
    Thanks for the opportunity

  206. You are so generous with all of your giveaways. And thanks so much for all the ideas that you detail for us to recreate. Love that! The Christmas collection is fantastic. A gift subscription to your craft library would sure be a wonderful surprise on Christmas morning.

  207. Oh how cute! I love the two projects. I would love to find anything related to cardmaking and paper crafting under the tree. Even a little package of brads would be fun. it is a surprise afterall. But, a subscription to the craft library would be over the top!

  208. Your projects are beautiful Under my tree a subscription to the Paper Craft Library would be terrific!

  209. I’d love a Silhouette and would even “negotiate” that it would count for 3 years’ worth of Christmas gifts. I’m easy to please. 😉

  210. I would love to get a gift certificate to my LSS, or if I’m allowed to pick a big ticket item, a set of copics! I love Echo Park products, so trendy and cute, thanks for the opportunity to win!

  211. Since I already have a subscription to Papercrafters Library, I’d have to go with a bind it all to create even more things. Thank you for the chance to win such an adorable line.

  212. Once again, thank you so very much for sharing your tutorials and tips. Both you ladies are so talented!!! As for something under the Christmas tree….I think this would have to be Spellbinders. I love, love these and have just purchased the Grand Calibur so I would love to receive a new die for this machine. The Echo Park line of Christmas papers you used for the tutorial was a hit with me…I will see if I can purchase some of these items at my local stamping store.

  213. I was lucky to have found this website, and i have shared with some friends hopefully they think it is just as great as I do, you projects are so beautiful. Any of your kits would be great!!

  214. I would love to have Santa build me a new craft room with storage for all my supplies! I seem to keep adding to them. Thanks for the opportunity to win this collection from Echo Park. Love them!

  215. Love Echo Park! It is one of my favorite companys. I’m hoping to find a Zutter bind it all! I donated mine to someone because I wasn’t using it and now that I don’t have it I’m missing it a lot!

  216. Love this collection! Great ideas too…love the notepads. I would love to find lots of the punches with matching stamps under my tree this year!

  217. Love, love Echo Park! I would be very happy to see a Silhouette Cameo under the tree. Thanks for the chance to win!

  218. I would love to see some Tim Holtz dies under my tree 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway. I love your videos!

  219. Such an adorable collection and great ideas to go with! I would love to see an emboss heating tool and organizing supplies under my tree this year! Thanks for the oppurtunity to win such a sweet gift!

  220. I just love this collection and all of your tutorials! Thanks so much! You are an inspiration to my paper crafting! One thing I would like to see under the tree this year would be a stand for my ink pads:) thanks for a chance to win!

  221. Oh my goodness…so hard to choose one thing, but I think anything from the Tim Holtz line would be great!

  222. I love this collection, it’s bright and colourful! I think the one thing I would like to see under the tree is a Cricut. I know I’m one of the last people to own one (lol), so I think Santa needs to know it’s about time I have one! 🙂
