Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas!!

As I mentioned before, I am on a serious budget.  I mean, s-e-r-i-o-u-s. Can you believe it has been almost a month since I have stepped foot in Jo-ann, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby?  Oh, the humanity!!  I am having serious withdrawals here. Anyway....

I did happen to splurge on a couple of things before I went on said budget.  For instance, my yummy Doodlebug Christmas twine.  So pretty, so colorful, how could I not resist? And then there was Echo Park.  I was really adamant about not spending a single penny on paper this year, but after seeing the Holly Jolly line, it was love at first sight.  I absolutely love the prints and the colors.  I mean, seriously, could Echo Park do no wrong?  I am in awe of all of their lines but this one has to be the funnest. I forget what the point of my story is.  Really, there's none.  I just wanted you to know about my deep, sincere and unconditional love for Echo Park.

Oh wait!!  Here's my point.  I made 2 cards using paper and stickers from Echo Park.  I know I used some of these supplies in my previous Holiday card posts, but these two hold a special place in my heart.  And I'm not sure why.   Maybe, because they have 2 of my most favorite ingredientses (I love the way Teresa Giudice says this).  Nope, make that 3 (I see stickles!!).  Or maybe because I really thought outside of the box to come up with these ideas.  Whatever the reason, these are two little lovelies that I am pretty happy with.

Lover #1

Lover #2

Sorry about all of the gushing over my OWN creations. LOL It's all in good fun! I'm not really that egotistical. =)

Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  1. You should gush, they are darling! TOOT YOUR OWN HORN! :) I really love this line, too, and WOW, over a month? You have amazing self-restrain! Thanks for popping by my blog, Merry Christmas!! :)

  2. I love these! The colors and patters are oh so fun and festive. Now I need to go check out Echo Park. Guess I'll have to go online since no retailer seems to carry it around here. These are both ADORABLE and kudos for keeping with the budget. xxD
