For this week's holiday products I selected the 2 collections from Echo Park [twopeasinabucket.com]. I used one of them already on the page I showed you last week, I used them on my cover, and on the page I am going to show you today. I am certain I will use a few of the papers and stickers on almost every page of the book. Seriously. This is why… I love the colors and the patterns. I know. Nothing too enlightening. But I really do like it. There are a lot of pattern patterns, and then there are those that are tone on tone, or subtle enough to be used in bits and pieces. You know how much I love to cut and punch out circles. In the Everybody Loves Christmas collection [twopeasinabucket.com], there are several really rich greens that I love. Its hard to find a set of really nice greens. Just green. Nothing special. Just a plain green paper without a lot of fuss. And there is a couple of redish pinkish dottie ones that I really, really like. A lot of really nice icons and graphics, with a cute santa, penguin and more. The letter stickers [twopeasinabucket.com] are brighter, whimsical and fun. If you like the brighter colors for your christmas projects, this is a super collection to look at.
There is also their Merry Christmas Collection [twopeasinabucket.com], which is more traditional I think with more of an olive green, brown, rich burgandy and some nice traditional patterns. Music scores, script, mistletoe, holly, houndstooth, argyle and plaids. There are a lot of great stickers on the sheet with this collection also… a vintage santa and then a lot of other icons like a tree, holly, frames and borders all patterned with the music score. The collection has a couple of really nice polka dot papers, in dark green and then in burgandy.
I am also showing the American Crafts Remarks sticker booklets [twopeasinabucket.com] today. I really like the economy of these. There are so many letters in each booklet, that you could use them for the entire album project and never run out. There are several fonts to choose from and of great quality materials. And as always, I am throwing in my favorite of favorites… Doodlebug letter stickers [twopeasinabucket.com]. I threw in my Loopy Lou and then the Shin Dig. I adore them.
