it’s time for another fun echo park paper design team blog hop…

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper and Artfull Crafts Design Team Blog Hop!

EP-And-Artfull-Crafts-Blog-Hop-Graphic

Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is hopping with the Artfull Crafts Design Team showcasing projects from the "This & That" and "Yours Truly" collections.

Here’s the project I get to share with you today:

thisandthat_boy_gift_wendysue  thisandthat_boy_gift_b_wendysue 

It’s a little “milk carton” package gift I made with products from This & That CHARMING!

Wouldn’t it be fun to fill this with a yummy treat or special gift for someone “just because”?  (I think “just because” gifts are the BEST kind to give – seeing someone’s face light up when you give them a gift when they aren’t expecting it….it’s the BEST!)

{click on the images above to purchase the products I used for my project}

Guess what?  I get to give away an entire “This & That Charming” collection to one of my blog readers (that’s YOU)!!!

  8. I love what you did! That circle print is one of my favorites from the line- it just screams FUN in an understated way- perfect for adding lots of dynamism to a project without making the eye work very hard. This line of my favorite from the bunch- the colors, the patterns, the CAMERAS - it's spot on perfect.
