More Pocket Cards on Traditional Pages

The weekend is here! Do you have anything fun planned? Are you planning on doing any scrapping? I am! I’m also hoping to convince the family to go on a fall picnic in the mountains … crossing my fingers they’ll all be up for it! The leaves haven’t started to change on the trees in town, but every night on the news viewers are sending in pictures of the gorgeous views up in the mountains. It’s making me itch to get up there and enjoy it! :)

But before I break for the weekend, I thought I would share with you a couple more block-style scrapbook page designs using the All-Occasion Title Card Scrapbooking set.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

One thing I never purge are my holiday papers and embellishments. They always mix together so wonderfully! Here, I used the All-Occasion Title Cards to add new life to an older collection that was hanging out in my stash.

In the top right corner of my page, I used one of the dimensional cards as is (I really liked all of the Halloween words and the fact that some of the words were already popped up on the card). Next. I cut out the green “Happy Halloween 31″ banner from another card, wrapped twine around the top, and then added a strip of black polka dot paper so that its height would “match up” with the other card. The spider dangling from the upper left corner was cut from yet another card.

At the bottom, I used a horizontal 3×4 card for my  journal block. The photo on the right needed a little something, so I trimmed the “Spooktacular” word strip from another card, added it to the bottom,accenting it with a flair badge.

 FAMILY IS THE BEST GIFT

More 3×4 cards get stacked on top of each other to the right of the focal photo. I decided to cut out the “Ho! Ho! Ho” words from another card and add it to the journal card. A bit of pen-stitching and embellishments accent the Title card.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Christmas2_600

I cut the “Merry Christmas” words from the same card as the “Ho! Ho! Ho!” word strip, notched the ends and placed it at the bottom of the page to accent the three smaller photos.

Thanks so much for coming by today! I hope you have a great weekend!

Pocket Cards on Traditional Pages

Yesterday I shared with you what I’ve been up to with my family, and today I’m going to start catching up on what I’ve been doing scrappy-wise. I’ve been making lots of fun stuff with Lisa’s latest HSN products! I’ll share those with you this coming week, as well as what’s coming up for the October 7th HSN Craft Day. (Mark your calendars!)

LisaBearnson_AllOccasionTitleCards_1DimensionalCards_600

Back on THIS POST I shared with you a pocket page I created with Lisa’s NEW dimensional All-Occasion Title Cards. If you are looking for a pocket card set that will fill in all the holiday and seasonal spots in your pocket albums, then you’ll definitely want to check this one out! They are great for Project Life-style scrapping, but I’m also going to show you how you can incorporate them into your regular scrapping.

I LOVE a good grid or block design on a scrapbook page. These types of designs especially come together easily when using pocket cards. Arrange the cards how you like using pictures in some of the spaces.

YOU WERE MEANT TO SHINE

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_School1_600

On the left side of the page, I used one of the vertical 4×6 cards as a place for journaling.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_School2_600

On the right side of the page, I stacked two 3×4 cards on top of each other. How cute are those 3D apples all ready to go on that bottom card. … (You know me and my LOVE for dimension!) Add a die cut paper clip to the blue card, some stitching here-and-there, and a few embellishments around the page and your layout is DONE!

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_School3_600

Here’s another example of a grid design. This time I used I used all 3×4 vertical cards.

 LET’S GO

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Travel1_600

I used my sewing machine to zig zag stitch along all of the seams between the cards to visually connect everything together and add texture.

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Travel2_600

 

I used orange letter stickers to add a few details to the “Explore” card. Easy peasy!

JanaEubank_LisaBearnsonTitleCards_Travel3_600

Tomorrow, check back for more ideas using the All-Occasion Title Cards (available HERE on HSN.com)!

(Note: All die-cutting created with the Silhouette Cameo.)

Hope to see you then!

More Fun with the eBrush!

This Wednesday is Craft Day at HSN and I will be there in the background with Lisa Bearnson to help with her shows. If you’d like to tune in here are Lisa’s showtimes.

lisa hsn blog JUNE230

Last month Lisa debuted the Craftwell eBrush Airbrush machine on HSN. Thanks to all of you it sold out! But it will be back again this Wednesday. If you didn’t catch it the first time and would like to see what it’s all about be sure to tune in! I’ve shared a few of my projects with you HERE and HERE using the eBrush machine. Here are some more things I created.

First, a few paper projects.

ENJOY

I created the sunset background for this card by using scraps of paper as masks. First, I cut a wavy border and sprayed tan along the bottom for the sand. I flipped the wavy strip over to cover the sand and then sprayed the top left corner of the card with yellow. Next, I used a punch circle as a mask for the sun by placing it over the yellow mist I just put down. Then, I used orange, pink and purple sprayed in concentric circles out from the sun mask, softly blending the colors into one another (I hope I’m making sense here). It was so much fun to do! Everything else on this card was cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine with black glitter cardstock. Then, I finished it all off with a few metal flower embellishments from a past Basic Grey collection.

I ONLY HAVE EYES FOR YOU

On this page, I used the eBrush to mist each of the hearts, giving them a dimensional look by holding the eBrush closer to the hearts along the edges.

 

JanaEubank_eBrush_EyesOnly1_600

JanaEubank_eBrush_EyesOnly2_600

I also used the eBrush to dress up the word “EYES” in the title and the hearts in the middle of the glasses.

Next up is a bunch of fabric projects! And no, the permanent markers I used to spray do not wash out. The eBrush comes with 6 different adaptors for popular markers you have in your stash. For the ones that didn’t fit exactly, I just used a bit of masking tape or washi tape around the barrel of the pen to make it fit. Hehe! (Hint, Hint: You can buy an AWESOME set of knock-off Sharpie pens in 24 colors for $12 at Walgreens … PERFECT for projects like these!)

Here are some fun projects I created for babies … onesies and bibs! Awwww! So cute!

I found this butterfly clip made out of feathers at Michaels’ and had fun spraying it up with the eBrush.

JanaEubank_eBrush_FeatherButterflyClip_600

Look how cute it looks pinned to this little canvas bag (striped sprayed with the eBrush).

JanaEubank_eBrush_ButterflyBag_600

Here is another mini canvas bag that I turned into  a gift for teacher.

JanaEubank_eBrushFabric_TeacherGift_600

Speaking of gifts, here are a couple of fun gift packaging ideas.

BUTTERFLY BAG

I sprayed a plain white gift bag in a variegated rainbow. Then I cut out the flower and butterflies using my Silhouette Cameo machine. The center of the flower looks more realistic with a spray of yellow in the flower center.

Here is another paper flower.

JanaEubank_eBrush_Flowers_600

 

FLORAL GIFT BOX

I used the eBrush to create an ombre effect on the sides of this gift box, and then sprayed the edges of my paper flower (created with the Silhouette Cameo machine).

JanaEubank_eBrush_GiftBox1_600

How about some home decor projects?

JanaEubank_eBrush_HSNLettersWhite1_600

 

NOEL CANVAS

This project was inspired by THIS beautifully airbrushed cake that I found through Pinterest. I can’t wait to set this on my table in my entry way this Christmas!

JanaEubank_eBrush_NoelCanvas1_600

JanaEubank_eBrush_NoelCanvas2_600

One of the coolest things you can do with the eBrush machine is to use food safe marker pens! Again, depending on the brand you buy, you may have to tape up the barrel of the pen to get it to fit snug in one of the adaptors, but the Wilton pens fit great in the Sharpie attachment (if I’m remembering correctly). Here are some fun food items (smooth surfaces work best) I made with the food color pens! Now, I am not a food crafter, but I can know I will definitely be using this machine once in awhile for birthdays, etc. So FUN!

FLOWER COOKIES

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut out the mask for this flower using THIS design from the Silhouette Cameo store. I simply hid the sections for each color so I could spray the leaves by them selves, the flower, and then the entire flower (so I could cover it and do the blue background).

JanaEubank_eBrush_CookiesFlower1Group_600

A simple heart on a cupcake for Valentine’s Day.

JanaEubank_eBrush_HeartCupcake_600

Or use your Silhouette Cameo machine to trace a logo or custom image. I used light blue for the entire logo and then gave the appearance of a darker blue around the edges, by misting the edges with a purple food marker.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_CookiesHSNLogo1Group_600

 

You can even add color to the white writing of a premade cake from the bakery.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_HappyBirthdayCakeWithMarkers_600

 

These cupcakes get a rainbow effect. The HSN letters a sprayed onto Necco candy wafers. using a letter mask created on my Cameo machine.

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_HSNRainbowCupcakes_600

JanaEubank_eBrushFood_RainbowCupcake2Single_600

 

Here is the same idea using Valentine colors of pink and red. Again, the hearts were sprayed onto Necco Candy Wafers using the negative shape of a heart cut in cardstock as a mask (punches are perfectly sized for this).

I hope you enjoyed seeing what you can make using the NEW eBrush from Craftwell. Be sure to watch Lisa on HSN this Wednesday for a live demonstration of this fun machine!

Delicious ribbon!

Here are a couple of pages I created with this fun kit.

HELLO?

Maryn has become our little secretary at our house … she LOVES to answer the phone! It must be something to do with being a preteen. Hehe! She’s quite fast at it, too. It’s almost as if she has a sixth sense and KNOWS when the phone is about to ring. If she was in a quick draw to answer telephones, she would be the last man standing. ;)

NeonPaperKit_JanaEubank_Hello1_600

I cut the telephone, scalloped rectangle, and title out using my Silhouette Cameo machine. The glitter ribbon makes a great page border along the bottom of the striped paper. The silver star clips carry the silver throughout the rest of the page.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

For my kids’ birthdays they get to choose where they would like to go out to dinner as a family. They usually choose an pizza place full of arcade games. :) These bright papers were perfect for scrapping these photos of my daughter at her birthday dinner a couple of years ago. These colors would also be great for Amusement park photos, don’t you think?

NeonPaperKit_JanaEubank_HappyBirthday1_600

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine again to cut out the title words and the robot. Have I ever told you how much I love my Cameo?!
