Product Spotlight – Echo Park Bundle of Joy

Have you seen the adorable baby line by Echo Park?

Bundle of Joy has a boy collection and a girl collection, but both collections are made to work together so it is more versatile and you can mix and match the two collections if you want. You can buy the collection pack, which contains two of each patterned papers for a total of 12 patterns – as well as the two sticker sheets. We also carry the 6×6 paper pads if you’re looking to make smaller projects and cards.


This adorable 3D card was made by Adriana Lawless.

The products are from the adorable Echo Park “Bundle Of Joy” baby boy line which can be found in the Scrapbook Nerd store.

If you want to reproduce this card, here’s what you need:

  • Echo Park – Bundle of Joy- Alpha Sticker Sheet
  • Echo Park – Bundle of Joy – Element Sticker Sheet
  • Echo Park – Bundle of Joy – Layered Chipboard
  • Echo Park – Bundle of Joy – Patterned Paper (Choo Choo Train, Pat-a-cake, Sleep Tight)

This will work equally as well with the Echo Park Bundle of Joy Baby Girl line.

Need further inspiration? How about this adorable layout by Susan Stringfellow.

FleursbyDesign Blog  Hi, my name is Fleur Smith.  I have been married to a wonderful man, Michael, for over twenty one years and we have two amazing sons that keep me very busy.  I live in the beautiful town of Ladner, which is just outside Vancouver, BC, Canada. My other passions are taking photographs, traveling, reading and music.  I do all of the above (especially Scrapbooking) whenever I can and you will usually find me at my designated scrap zone well past midnight.

I have been an avid Scrapbooker since the birth of my first son, over 13 years ago, but my paper crafting adventures started when I could use scissors and would cut up paper and glue it to everything. I still love to cut patterns from paper and make my own embellishments. My style is fun, colorful and playful.  I recently started making videos which you can see on my Youtube account.  Currently I am a part of the Imaginisce and Epiphany Crafts Design Teams.  I have been published in Paper Crafts Magazine, Create Magazine, Simply Handmade, Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine and other magazines.                                                    Fleur’s blog: FleursByDesign

Lynne & Wally Hello, my name is Lynne. I am a widow with three children.  My son and oldest daughter are off on their own and my youngest daughter is finishing her first year in college.   I have a cute rat terrier mutt named Cassie to keep me company at home.   I have been scrapping since the mid 90’s and involved in message boards for just as long.  I love the camaraderie and the inspiration message boards give me.  I scrap as therapy.  To relax.  I scrap as inspiration strikes and do not care if I am ever “caught up”.   I guess you might say I am a simple scrapper, as I usually just stick with patterned papers and an occasional embellishment to complete my layouts.  I do not have an electronic cutter, nor do I want one.  I create with my many punches and my own artistic abilities.  I hope you enjoy what I create as part of this DT as much as I will creating.  Oh, one last thing………..GP RED SOX!!!

MoniqueMy name is Monique, I’ve been scrapping for approximately 5yrs now, and have loved every minute of it!  I started scrapping while I was pregnant with my little guy, I was taken off work due to complications with the pregnancy and really needed something to do, so I went to a few classes a co-worker was doing and she got me utterly hooked…I have not looked back!!  I am a hoarder of supplies, I love them all!!!  I have been on a Design Team & been also been a Guest DT to two great companies, I loved it, loved the challenge of it!!   My goal is to someday be published in a Canadian Magazine, but I have yet to attempt it, someday, I will though!                                                                            Monique’s blog: Scraps of Me

dsarah2 My name is Sarah Moore, and I am 31 years old and I live in a small town in British Columbia. I’ve been married to my best friend for 9 years this October, and I am the luckiest person alive to have such a caring and supportive husband! He thinks I’m totally crazy, but loves me anyway and he fully supports my scrapbooking addiction! I am a Christian and  a SAHM to  3 amazing boys! Ethan is 7, Caleb is 4, Kieran is 3, and we’re expecting our 4th boy in the end of July! They keep me very busy and are an endless source of scrapbooking inspiration! I also have a giant dog named Luca who is part Lab, part moose! I’ve been scrapbooking for 9 years (I started scrapbooking so I could make a wedding album). My aunt scrapbooked with Creative Memories and I would go to her house and work on my layouts. I dabbled in it here and there, but didn’t get really serious about it until about 6 years ago when I was introduced to a whole other world of paper and embellishments and paint and inky goodness at my LSS! I even worked there for a while, but I had to stop, because I had no self control! lol You know it’s bad when you owe money instead of getting a paycheck!! haha! I have such a passion for paper and ink and working with various textures and materials! The scrapbooking world just keeps getting better and better with new trends and techniques and I love them all! Our LSS is actually closing in June, so I’m really happy that I’ve found another Canadian store that has such an amazing array of products to feed my addiction!! lol I look forward to getting to know all the ladies in the forum better too!              Sarah’s blog: Scraps by Sarah

 Welcome to the team ladies, we can’t wait to see all your amazing creations. Already your presence on the fourm as been amazing. Congratulations!
