Echo Park Celebrate Autumn - Beach Walks and Hot Chocolate

Hello, Karen here with another layout using the gorgeous, vibrant Celebrate Autumn collection from Echo Park.

We recently spent a week at the coast and enjoyed lots of walks on the beach. We have a habit when walking on the beach on cold autumn days of taking a hot drink from one of the beach cafes with us and so I decided to document this with a scrapbook layout with the rather unimaginative title 'Beach Walks and Hot Chocolate'!

I started with a 12x12 sheet of white Avalanche Bazzill cardstock and onto this I layered pieces of the Autumn Friends, 3x4 Journaling Cards (B Side) and Autumn Acorns papers from the Celebrate Autumn collection. I matted my 5x7 photo onto cream cardstock and then onto a piece of the Colored Leaves paper. After sticking this to the centre of the layout I machine stitched round all the paper edges with black thread.

Using a rubber stamp and die set from my stash, I stamped three take-out cups onto scraps of the cardstock and patterned paper and after assembling them I stuck them to the lower right corner of the layout using 3D foam to add some dimension. Some orange Bakers Twine was also twirled underneath the cups.

My title was die cut from black cardstock and stuck to the top left corner.

Journaling strips printed on the computer were stuck to the bottom left corner.

The layout was completed with a scattering of gold sequins.

I am loving working with this collection and will be back later in the month with one more autumn themed layout. I hope I've inspired you to scrapbook some autumn memories and you can find the celebrate Autumn collection and lots more autumn themed supplies in the Papermaze shop.

Take Care
