I love how easy it is to layer the paper is this collection! The great thing about both This & That collections from Echo Park is that they all go together. Half the paper and embellishments are from "Charming" and half from "Graceful."
With all the neutral color in the papers (and the muted teal), it was easy to let the photo stand out. And the lines on the Tickets Please paper are perfect for adding journaling. To accent the layout, I used a cut chipboard piece, a few buttons and a "card" cut from the Primer paper layered over on of the border strips.

If you love creating layers and a pop effect within your layouts, “This and That” papers by Echo Park is absolutely perfect; and they come in a set of papers created for little boys and a set for little girls. In this layout I went with the “This and That” Charming paper set, it was perfect for pictures of my nephew and his big sister.

Pinks and girls! What else could be better? I paired a few of the more "girly" patterns with four photos taken with the Hipstamatic app on my phone. To tie in to the black borders on the photos I added some black accents - a border strip, Maya Road tag, Jenni Bowlin black plastic flowers and black alphas from Tim Holtz.

I used the Wave Searcher line by Fancy Pants. I had so much fun working with these papers!
These pinwheels are your free element when you buy the other items for this layout. There are color copies of the directions for this layout at the store but I will also include them here.
One sheet of each paper Shoreline, Summertime, Shovel, Goggles,
Bucket, Floating, and Relaxation.
One yard of each the flat ribbon and string.
One package Queen&Co buttons.
Instructions: Build background on two pieces of 12x12 paper (any color, I used white.) Starting at the top of both side of the background page working your way down attach a 2 ½ x 12 inch piece of Goggles, ¾ x12 inch piece of Summertime, 6x12 inch piece of Shovel, ¾ x12 inch piece of Summertime and a 2 ½ x 12 inch piece of Goggles.
Cut out two large swirl shapes from the Shoreline paper. I cut mine from the left side and the right side of the paper so that one edge was flat. I attached the swirls to the layout with pop adhesive with the flat edge of the swirl lined up with the flat edge of the background paper.
This is what my paper looked like after I cut out my swirls just to give you a better idea of what you are cutting.
Cut a 5 ½ x 7 ½ inch photo mat out of Summertime and attach 5x7 photo and the mat to the left side of the layout. Cut an 8x1 ¼ inch strip of Floating and a 9 ½ x ¾ strip of Bucket and place on the layout slightly overlapping the photo and going across both side of the layout.
Cut a piece of Summertime to an appropriate size for your title (mine was 5x2 inches) and cut a small piece of Floating for the date (mine was 3x1 inches.) Using a circle punch cut 3 circles out of Relaxation (I used a 1 ¼ inch circle punch.) Add the title, date and circles to the layout using a pop adhesive.
To make the pin wheels (free element!!) pull down the corner to the right side of each slit made in the paper square and use glue dots to adhere the corners in the center. Place one of the small buttons in the center. Attach pinwheels to the layout and add string as the stem. Add two 3 inch pieces of the flat ribbon to the layout on either side of the title. Finish by adding buttons to the swirl paper.

Echo Park has wonderful sticker sheets for their paper collections. It makes cardmaking really easy with preprinted sentiments that you can use. I chose this sticker and layered it with three of the papers from the line. I added some green ribbon and a couple feathers from my stash along with a Kaisercraft flower. To tie it together I put two little black pieces of bling to the left of the sentiment.
