Great Impressions Stamps and Echo Park Paper DT blog hop!

Lookie who it is! JUST who I’ve been waiting for.. YOU! *waves*


Welcome to the Great Impressions Stamps/Echo Park Paper Design Team Blog Hop! Today the Echo Park Paper Design Team and Great Impressions Stamps Design Team are showcasing projects from our latest collections. Be sure to follow the blog hop list below as you hop from one blog to the next. ONE winner will be selected from EACH blog to receive an Echo Park Paper collection kit of their choosing, and a set of two stickable stamps from Great Impressions Stamps.   To qualify for the kit and stamps, comments will be due by midnight EST, Sunday, October 21st to qualify for the drawing. The winner will be announced on each blog Monday, October 22nd so be sure to check back to see if you’ve won. (Mine may be a day or two late..) I am also going to throw in this flair collection from my shop, Paper Play Studio! This has been one of my best sellers, it’s beaaaautiful!

If you’ve just stumble upon my blog, you will want to start at the top of this blog hop list! You don’t want to miss any projects, right? Let’s not forget the multiple chances to WIN!



I had a lot of fun working with these cute stamps from Great Impressions Stamps! They are GREAT quality and stamp very clean, as I am sure you’ve noticed from the designers before me! I used Echo Park Paper’s ‘This and That Christmas’.. So just by using those stamps and that paper, it’s automatically a kick butt project!.. Right? *nods*

I made a cute card and gift box set! I think my blog name should be ‘Happy Life, allimakeisboxes’. LOL. If you are a regular around here you know how I love me some packaging. I always have a gift or treat to give.. yet when it comes time to giving, I don’t wanna give out my ‘cool’ stuff, lol.


Here’s my project! Ooooh… Ahhhhh… Ahhh-chooo! (sorry that sneeze snuck in there.. )

Awww, yuh! Not bad for a last minute project, eh.. ehhhhh?… Go me! (Totally was busy this past week/weekend and had to get a project done the day before this hop started.. got this lovely set done in about 1.5hrs… Two points for me!)

Not sure what the ‘points’ are all about.. but it sounded good.

100 points to you for being here! You can get yourself a giant sticky ‘slap hand with that! (You know.. all those cheap crud toys that are worth five cents.. yet you spend $20 in tickets for it? lol)


Anyhow, check out the cute dark brown snowflake stamps on the woodgrain paper! It’s so subtle.. unlike myself.

This darling gift box was created by cutting the ‘glove box’ file from SVG Cuts ‘Mothers Garden’ SVG Kit! It’s fabulous and a perfect size! (although I switched up the top and added in stars in my eCal cutting software)  This would be great for cookies, etc.

I think I say ALL my packaging ideas are great for treats and cookies.. LOL. Soooomebody likes treats!

Really though.. what else can I say?

“This is the perfect box for your gum wrappers, nose hair trimmings, and used toothpicks!”

Yeah. Treats it is!

This card is ‘the card the wasn’t suppose to be’… I was stamping on a Canvas bag and felt like a turd. I JUST made some canvas stamped bags and my regular blog readers might start to get bored with me. “Hey, Tamara.. While you’re stamping on that 100,000th canvas bag, why don’t ya shove your head it in?.. Booooring”. So, to prevent this, I cut up the bag and slapped it onto a card base after I frayed the edges and stitched around them. Add on some ribbon, button, brad, and a sticker.. why.. You have yourself a cool and unique card! Yes.. I amaze myself! I love when things just ‘happen’. I thought the card needed something with it, so while resisting the urge to stamp 20,001 more canvas bags for my project, I made the gift box.

Are you tired of my rambling yet? I am sure you’d loooove me to ramble on for days, but I have some trash TV ‘reality’ shows calling me from my DVR… “Taaaaaamara.. come watch us so you can feel better about yourself” I can choose from Hoarders, or New Jersey Housewives. lol. Both? Me thinks so!

I will now send ya off to Jennifer I am sure she will have some lovely stamped yumminess for you!

And since I am soooo close to my 3,000 followers on FACBOOK.. will you please come ‘like’ me if you wanna be a cool kid? It’s true.. My followers are the coolest around! Dooo iiiiiit! *smiles* I promise not to sneeze on you anymore.

Feel free to pin my project! My green ‘pin it’ link is not working, but you can use that snazzy gray/red one! THANKS!

  36. Myoriah says:

    Now I’m pouting because you didn’t pick me as a winner when you were giving away the canvas bags. If you would have I could have stamped on a bag and cut it up for on a card like you did. Seriously though I love the look of the card. It really turned out nice. But you knew there had to be a but didn’t you. Everything you make is nice. I enjoy reading your ramblings and seeing what you have done.
