For the Record 2 by Echo Park Paper




















{Reported by Ashley Harris}






Happy Friday to you all!  Today we are going to take a look at the new For the Record 2 Collection by Echo Park Paper.  I am super excited about this collection!   Their first collection of For the Record was amazing and so fun.  Well this is even better if you can imagine that.   I love that they have 2 collections in this line.   One more geared toward masculine colors and the other feminine.    So here we go!



What I liked:
-I loved the fact that there are so many choices in color schemes.  You can mix and match the 2 collections of Tailored and Documented.
-I love tight patterns on paper.  It makes it so much easier to work with as a card maker.
-  Love the layered chipboard.  So cute and fun!



What I didn't like:
-Now there is only one thing I didn't like.  It was the adhesive on the chipboard.  It doesn't adhere well. I had to add my own adhesive to get it to stick without falling of.  So that is something they might want to be aware of for the future.


What I made:







Supplies:  Pearls: Kaisercraft; Ribbon & Lace: May Arts; Adhesive: Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L; All other product:  For the Record 2 by Echo Park Paper



Where and How Much:
 Product:  For the Record 2
Manufacturer:  Echo Park Paper



Bottom Line:
I loved this line.  Both collections were so much fun to work with and had so much in them!   


What do you think?  Do you like these collections?  Are they something you would like to work with?  Leave a comment by midnight EST on Saturday to be entered to win one of the two collections.  So we are giving away 1 of each collection!!   US residents only.  Be sure to leave a way for us to contact you in the event that you win!

Would LOVE to work with these. It's hard to decide which one I like best. I have two girls, but I hate to always be working with pinks and purples. I really appreciate 'pretty' and kid friendly papers in 'boy' colors.

I loved the first For the Record and was so glad to see that Echo Park was releasing this second version. Even better - they took the route of their This & That line and made the two versions for "boy" and "girl". I'm more attracted to the Tailored/feminine papers and colors this time, but it looks like For the Record 2 will give us plenty more opportunity to mix up these papers and patterns, which of course is great to keep those creative juices flowing!

Thanks for the review, and thanks for the chance to win some new Echo Park!

I LOVE both of these collections!

Echo Park is one of my fav companies and I'm so excited about these collections although I'm leading more towards the Documented one.

Thanks for the review and for the chance to win.

Jennifer said...

Love how versatile these are!

Shawninaz said...

I'm thrilled that they released more of this popular collection, love it all!

I have loved both since I saw them the first time. The girlier of the two might be my favorite, but really it depends on my mood. I like the colors and patterns, and appreciate you mentioning the lack of stickiness. I like your reviews--I like to know about products before I buy them. THANKS.

Love them, but then I'm a huge fan of Echo Park Paper. The fact that I can find their designs for my Cameo is an extra bonus!

Emily Todd said...

The last two collections were great and these two are definitely going to be new favorites. Thanks for the warning about the chipboard adhesive.

I really love both of these collections! Normally I'm more drawn to the blues & greens, but I think I like the multi-colored one this time.

I have been drooling over these since I first saw them online. We don't have a LSS, so I haven't had a chance to play, yet, but they look SO versatile.

smahrty said...

Both collections look awesome! I love your projects and would "lift" the cards and the alyouts. Nice job Ashley! Thanks for sharing them with us.

Juliana said...

I am in LOVE with both of these collections!!! Thanks for a chance to win!!!

AmyBug said...

Love, love the documented collection. Don't get me wrong they are both fab but the color scheme of blues would work better for my guys pages. :)

I was sooooo happy to see that they were coming out with two more color schemes as I just loved the first line!

Casey Lu said...

What's not to like about any Echo Park paper collection?! I don't normally like scrapping green, blue, or yellow, but I really really do like it! Both of them have really nice graphic papers and can't go wrong with chevron's,polka dots, or florals! Can't wait to get these two lines!
