Off the Page Projects with Echo Park Be Mine

Off the page projects using Echo Park Be Mine Pattern Papers

From Lindy...

Using the inside of a 8inx8in Canvas, I choose the Be Mine range from Echo Park to cover the canvas and some gorgeous black velvet ric rac for under the pleated paper.

Cut the base paper to size added a strip of paper and added some black lace and some jewels .

Mounted the photo on foam mounting tape to add some dimension ,under the photo I placed a my2angels designed pink self adhesive rhinestone heart.

Attached a mini pink gardenia and a angel heart charm with some brown and white baker’s twine and added some silver bling

And I have used those beautiful my2angels designed pins love pins and their celebrate & wedding pins

What a perfect gift for Valentines Day!

From Me Tracy ...

Told ya I would ignore my mother and start on the birdhouse LOL
Ta da ...

Using a Scrapware Lizzy's Birdhouse Kit and Echo Park Be Mine Collection Papers to cover the birdhouse then adding Hambly Screen Print Pink & Ink Overlay Metallic Silver to cover the hollow walls but the kit does come with walls if you want to add them

Also in the kit you receive a frame for the front door of the house which I inked with versa color white ink and Walnut Stain Embossing Powder

Inside the Birdhouse Kit you also receive 4 baroque trims which I added to the roof first inking with versa color white ink and Walnut Stain Embossing Powder and sprinkling diamond dust over the top

Inside the birdhouse I have made a nest using branches from our yard.

The scrapware birdcage is from the Petite Flourish Birdcage pack has been inked with Versa Color pink and Walnut Stain Embossing Powder and added one of our parrot on a flower swing charm

Also using some invisible thread (apparently it was suppose to be invisible!) I hung 3 of our flying bird charms inside

Side view with our pink birdcages hanging from silver twist chain
See our flying bird charms inside the cage?
Pink and White Stemmed Flowers behind a scrapware mini fence border which has been inked with Versa Color pink and Walnut Stain Embossing Powder
Also added some scrapware mini grass around the birdhouse which I just used versa color white ink on


To cover the edges of birdhouse as I didn't follow the instructions on covering it (I never do - maybe that's why somethings don't turn out how they should LOL)

I inked all the edges black and covered with diamond dust especially in the areas where you could see the joins

thanks for looking
Hope you all have a great day
