An Echo Park Gingerbread House Holiday Layout

How are you doing?  Are you surviving the holiday season craziness?  Today I have another Christmas layout being featured over at Lori Whitlock's blog using the This and That Christmas paper collection that she designed for Echo Park and of course more of her awesome cutting files.  ;)

For the focal gingerbread house focal point I borrowed some cork print paper from Lori's Note to Self collection and then set to work embellishing it with rhinestones, pearls and a wood star from Studio Calico. I finished it off with a little Stickles added to the icing diecut for some extra sparkle.
I happened upon Lori's awesome Valentine's Day Heart border and thought it could be transformed onto a fun accent for this Christmas page.  I love how it looks cut from the wood print paper and how it showcases so many of the papers from this collection without making it feel too busy.

For the Title I pieced together 3 different titles of Lori's. I wanted to use the phrase "Home Sweet Home" and I went on a hunt looking for a cute way to spell it out with Lori's existing cutting files.  Love when you can take the shapes you already own and get a little extra mileage out of them.  :)

For this layout I used the following shapes available for purchase at Lori's Shop:
6 valentines borders
7 Labels 3 (used bracket label for background)
1 Page Layout Kit  (used "sweet" word)
‘love at home’ title
love at home phrase

Thanks so much for stopping by.  :)


  1. So the cork paper gingerbread house with the fun embellishments and the wood grain paper for the hearts and title...makes for a simply adorable layout!

  2. Gorgeous page! That woodgrain paper is perfect for this. Just adorable.

  3. So adorable, Mendi! Love your little cork gingerbread house and the way you did the title. The pearly accents and the heart border really add a lot of interest, too! Will have to pin this for later inspiration! ;-)

  4. So adorable, Mendi! Love the cork gingerbread house along with the pearly accents. The heart border really adds a lot of interest! Will have to pin this for later! ;-)
