Brand Focus on Carta Bella and Echo Park
Hello to You! This is Friday’s Design Team Project for Scrapping for Less..I am running a bit behind with my post:) Every month SFL Features a Company and this month’s Company is Carta Bella/Echo Park:) I love Carta Bella/Echo Park not only for the beautiful collections they have but the wonderful price point. I was given a 6 x 6 paper pad from Carta Bella called Fall Blessings along with a Decorative Brad Set from Carta Bella called A Perfect Autumn. I created my card by cutting circles with the beautiful patterned papers, added some brad accents and used a “Fall” die from my stash along with the “Happy” sentiment. For finishing touches I added glossy accents over the fall die cut and a few of the leaves on the patterned papers:) I hope you like it. Have a wonderful day and happy crafting:) Hugs, Tina
Scrapping for Less is in love with Echo Park/Carta Bella
All of us here at Scrapping for Less absolutely love Echo Park Paper Co. They are one really diverse company and bring many, many patterns out each and every year. They have at least one release each month and they could not be cuter! Cause’ who doesn’t love some absolutely cute pattern paper?

Lawn Fawn Stamp Set ” Your Claw Some!” Is Awesome!!
Hello There! It’s Tina from Cards and Coffee Time, Thanks so much for visiting. Grab your quarters it time to win that teddy bear!! Well, if we can’t win it we can make it:) I once found one of these teddy vending machines and gave my 2 girls each a dollar to play….they came sooooo close. My hubby was watching, then he tried $12 worth. Then of course I had to try, and guess what I WON that odd shaped ugly little stuffed animal (wasn’t nearly as cute as these). Yep… I sure did! I will never forget ….One hour later, $38 dollars shorter, and an argument on the way home on who got to have that odd shaped funny looking ugly plush animal. I wish this stamp set was available then. I’d be a few dollars richer:)
Today for my Design team project with the feature focus on Lawn Fawn I made this Fun interactive window card. I used the ” Your Claw Some” Stamp Set along with the coordinating dies, both are available for purchase at the Scrapping for Less Store at a great price I might add. Check it out by Clicking Here.
I used my alcohol markers to color in the adorable teddy bear vending machine. I created my base panel with the Lawn Fawn Small Stitch 4 Bar Rectangle die set. For fun I added a chain to the claw piece for an action element. This is a great card to give to someone in any age group.

Have a Wonderful Crafty Day Friends! Hugs, Tina
