Echo Park's Today's Story layouts

Hello..hope this finds you doing well. I'm sharing the last of my projects done with Echo Park's Today's Story for The Scrapbooking Studio. I love the colors of this line, but I will admit I found it challenging. Do you sometimes have the problem of what you thought you would do with a collection doesn't turn out?  Well, I really struggled with my layouts for some reason.  And for this first one, I'm not even sure what I would add to it.  I love this pattern of the line...the "amazing" and "you rock" caught my eye and I thought of this past summer when my BFFs and I did the Dirty Girl 5k.  (If you haven't heard of the it, the race is a muddy obstacle course and also raises money for breast cancer research). 

Here, I used a Snippet from the Elle's Studio line The Sweet Life. I added some Queen and Co. washi tape and enamel dots from My Mind's Eye

The letters for my title are from the Pebbles' Hip Hip Hooray collection. 

I made different banners and pennants to go under a line of washi tape. Of course, I had to stitch through!

A journaling circle from Elle's Studio and yes, more washi tape!

For my next layout, I used my 4 inch scallop square punch and stitched them across the top. 

My journaling spot, I cut from one of the patterned papers, then added washi tape and a piece of flair from {a flair for buttons}.

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist of two of the Studio Calico wooden veneer pennants and threaded gray bakers twine through.  My title letters are Thickers from American Crafts.

A cute little geotag from Studio Calico!

And there you have it. It goes to show that being challenged is a good thing. As designers, I'm sure we all go through creativity blocks!  But, I think it helps us grow in our art.
Thanks for stopping by!
