We are celebrating creativity by combining the wonderful products from  Imagine crafts and Echo Park showcasing how well they work together.
I created a quick and easy layout – I was inspired by the colors in the paper range as well as the beautiful die-cut.
I used a combination of irRESISTible Pico Embellishers and irRESISTible sprays to create a fun background on my layout.
Different colors combined to create a beautiful effect.

step 1 – Add a stencil design to your cardstock using texture paste and sprinkle with glitter. Leave the paste to dry completely and shake off the excess glitter.

step 2 – Spray the background with irRESISTible Texture spray in white across the stenciled design and the background. Leave to dry completely.
2016_october_jn_ephop_step1step 3 – Die-cut the doily out of white cardstock and mist with Yellow Fireworks spray. Let dry.
2016_october_jn_ephop_step2step 4 – Cut a variety of paper strips and ink the edges.
2016_october_jn_ephop_step3step 5 – Create your layout. Adhere the paper strips to the left edge of your layout. Trim off overlapping pieces and ink the edge.
2016_october_jn_ephop_step6step 6 – Layer your photo, die-cut doily, flower stickers from the sticker sheet and thread under your photo.
Add the ampersand sticker and additional flower stickers on top of the layers.2016_october_jn_ephop_step4step 7 – Create colored confetti using punched circles from your scrap papers and a combination of diamante and irRESISTible dots.
TIP: Remove the top of the spray bottle from the bottle and carefully splat and drop irRESISTible dots onto your layout.
Set aside to dry completely before finishing off your layout.
