First Car (Scoot)

Happy weekend to you all!  Here are the final 2 projects that I made for S J Crafts using the wonderful Echo Park Scoot collection.  

First up, a quick card using some of the fab stickers from the sticker element sheet.  There are lots of little trains and diggers etc that are great for making little scenes on birthday cards for boys and the B side papers are prefect for backgrounds.  I was really inspired by Jen Gallacher's Scoot card here.

A few pop dots for dimension and the job is a good'un.

My final layout has been my favourite of the whole series and one of my very favourites from the entire weekend too. 

I tend to rush past papers that have specific areas printed on them for scenes but this one was quite subtle and therefore really easy to use.  As soon as I saw the little motifs at the top of the page, I knew they would look wonderful highlighted with some stitching - one of my new favourite techniques.

It really brings them to life and makes them pop off the page without distracting from the rest of the layout which I kept to the bottom.  I cut some polaroid frames on my Silhouette but they are easy to recreate with a ruler and a craft knife.  I used some of the border stickers and element stickers plus a ribbon and a few buttons and charms from my stash to finish off.  There is only one other piece of patterned paper here and that was from a branding strip!

I have really really enjoyed using this fun and colourful collection.  Today with the rain hammering down and showing no signs of stopping, I might just take a look at all my layouts again to bring some sunshine into my day!  I hope you enjoyed them too.

Bye for now


  1. The highlight stitching is perfect..a very clever way to add a "next level" touch!
