echo park design team: july blog hop…

Welcome to the Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop!

July-DT-Blog-Hop-Graphic

Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team is showcasing projects from our latest collections.

I chose to share this simple little card I made using the So Happy Together collection:

so_happy_card2

I just love having so many fun coordinating pieces to choose from – it truly makes card-making and scrapbooking SO easy! 

(As you can see, I also love adding baker’s twine to my Echo Park projects…I only wish EP would start making their own twine! ;) )
