Boys | Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

This photo of my boys is one of my all time favourites! This collection was perfect to document it, all the elements were just right and went so well with the design of my page. I started off with the 'B' side of the Retro Slides paper  I love those spots! To break up all the spots, I used the strip that says 'This Boy is My Hero' from the Border Stripes paper and placed it towards the top of the page. I also tucked in a piece of the red from the same paper above the title one.

To mat my photo, I chose 2 papers from the 4' x 6' journal cards paper and also layered a smaller piece of red either side of the photo. Once I had my photo adhered to the journal cards, I added some twine from my stash for some added texture and tied it in a bow to the left side of the photo. 

The flair button I have added is from my stash and it says, 'Hello there, Handsome' very fitting for my boys! I also added the layered 'Boys' banner sticker underneath my photo. This became my title. I took one of the border stickers from the 12' x 12' sticker sheet and trimmed it down to add below the photo mat. I also added another of the layered stickers underneath the border sticker.  Lastly I adhered a wood veneer arrow near the right of the photo and also scattered some of the wood veneer hexagons too. I also added the date stamp of the date that the photo was taken.

A Happy Little Adventure | Echo Park Petticoats and Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!


One of my favourite papers from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection is that yellow globe paper. It is actually the 'B' side of the Lad Plaid paper! I decided to cut out a white globe cut file design to place over the top of the yellow globes. I like how the white really pops off the yellow. I machine stitched around the circle of the globe to add texture and to help secure it down to the paper.

I decided to scrap a photo of myself and my eldest son while on holidays a few years ago. I love this photo of us! I cut 2 papers from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper to layer under my photo and then placed the photo over on the bottom left of the page. I also tucked in one of the bingo cards from the Bingo Cards paper above the photo. The wood veneer pieces I got this month are super cute! I added one of the arrows to the bottom of the photo.

My title consists of mainly stickers from the sticker sheet and I placed on the right side of the page to balance out the bottom left size.  I also added another of the wood veneer arrows next to the word 'Little'. I added one of the layered stickers down near the base of the globe design and also put one of the border strip stickers on top of the base of the globe. Lastly I added some splatters of black mist and the date stamp and that finished mt layout for this week.

Reach for the Stars | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

This week the inspiration for my layout came from the blue Cars and Stars paper that I chose for the background. I really like using darker backgrounds to change things up a little.The stars on the paper gave me the idea to use the title 'Reach for the Stars' and I had just enough of the letters to make the word stars without having the same colour together.   

On the left of the photo, I added some of the Rocket Ships paper as well as some of the B side of the Bingo cards paper. I also tucked in a white tag from stash and added a piece of twine through the hole. The flair button 'Boy Stuff' is also from my stash. On the right hand side of the photo, I mainly embellished with stickers from the sticker sheet however I did add one of the awesome layered stickers

Lastly I added some of the wood veneer pieces to enhance the page a bit more and the word 'Strong'  from the washi tape roll. I really like how they look against the dark blue paper. I also added the date stamp of the date the photo was taken and I splattered some white mist around as well.

Hello Handsome | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park!

This week the inspiration for my page comes from my photo. I loved the light colour of the sandstone column my son is leaning on in this photo. The blue shirt he is wearing is a great contrast against the light background too. I pulled out some of the woodgrain elements and some of the blue tone things from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection to help coordinate everything.

I started out by adhering the 'B' side of the moustache paper horizontally to a plain white cardstock background. I then took one of the 12inch stickers from the sticker sheet and stuck it to the bottom of the paper. 
I placed some craft foam underneath my photo to pop it up off the page. I like how this creates dimension and shadows.

I cut one of the bingo cards from the Bingo Cards paper and then layered one of the fuss cut 3' x 4' journal cards over the top of the bingo card. I used craft foam again here to pop it up, creating the dimension and shadows that I love. On the left of the photo, I added one of the banners fussy cut out from the 3' x 4' journal cards paper again under my photo I also added one of the layered stickers here for extra interest. Some of the wood veneer pieces were placed for embellishments and some of the word stickers too. Lastly, I added the date stamp and some splats of mist to finish my page. The washi tape strip was alsoplacedat the bottom of the page.

Journey | Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes | Tarrah McLean

Hi Sassy Scrappers!

It's Tarrah McLean back with you and today I have a new layout to share using the awesome Petticoats and Pinstripes collection by Echo Park

The Rocket Ships paper from the Petticoats and Pinstripes collection is so cool so I decided to cut out a rocket ship using my Silhouette Cameo and used the rocket paper to back it. I then used foam tape to give it dimension and pop it up off the page.

I used the Boy Dog Days paper over to the left of the 'B' side of the Stripes paper to break up some of the red. I layered a 3' x 4' journal card underneath my photo and then placed the photo tucked into the left side of the rocket ship.  

To embellish I used lots of the stickers from the sticker sheet and some of the wood veneer from the September Skies collection. I made the triangles look like it was fire coming out of the rocket ship and the star chippie piece at the top is meant for a firework. I also layered one of the dimensional stickers over the rocket as well.
