SPS December Blog Hop - Echo Park Christmas lines!

Welcome to Pumpkin Spice December blog hop!
If you've come here from Court's blog, then you're on the right track! If not, start at the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog to make sure you haven't missed a single inspiring creation.

Well, it's December already and that means the current DT's terms are ending.  BUT, we are ending with a bang!  This blog hop is our last blog hop together and we have decided to show off the gorgeous Echo Park Christmas line of papers and embellishments.  

We are also featuring my Kit of the Month creations using supplies mostly from the Echo Park Times and Seasons collection.  I just loved everything about this collection and it's so much more versatile than just for Christmas.  Actually, my kit doesn't have any Christmas-related creations in it at all - it has more of a celebration/Valentine/friendship theme to it.  Here's a snapshot of most of the projects.  There are two additional projects not pictured below, but to see the entire list of supplies, you'll have to head over to the Kit of the Month section at SPS!

Oh, and before I share some detailed photos of two of my kit creations, I have another important announcement: Shop Pumpkin Spice is having a DT call for 2012!  Do you want to be a part of a fun and exciting team with one of the best store owners out there?  Then stop by the Shop Pumpkin Spice blog to find all the details :)

Since I made an extra project for this kit, I can reveal two creations today!  First up is my favorite creation from the kit, which is a 3x3 notecard box with four 3x3 notecards.  Bumbling me forgot to take a picture of the fourth notecard, but you can still see it in the first photo :)  This set uses papers from the Times and Season's 6x6 paper pad and stickers from the Times and Season's Elements Stickers.  I used a lot of different Spellbinder Dies and twine to dress things up a bit.

The second project is a quick and simple bag using Times and Seasons 12x12 Trinkets paper and a sticker form the Times and Seasons Elements Stickers.  I also used Caribbean and Denim Baker’s Twine.

I just love all the bold colors and patterns in this collection :)  I know that you'll have just as much fun with it as I did!

Well, thanks for stopping by today!  Please head on over to the
Shop Pumpkin Spice blog to complete the hop!

Here's the hop order in case you need it:
