TUESDAY’S GIVEAWAY is the brand, NEW, super fun and cute, Nifty Gifties Tie It On Kit! I LOVE Lisa’s Nifty Gifties kits. They are designed to make giving a gift card fun and a little more creative that just handing it to the recipient. Here are a few of the fun projects I created with this kit.

WEDNESDAY’S GIVEAWAY is the NEW eBrush Airbrush Machine! If you are kicking yourself for not picking up this awesome machine when it debuted on HSN in May, don’t worry! There will be more available on June 11th. Hooray! Or … go try and win yourself one this weekend on Lisa’s blog.

I shared a couple of my projects using the eBrush machine on my last post … here are a few more!

EAGLE PRIDE

THANK YOU CARD

One of my very favorite things to do with the eBrush is to create variegated backgrounds. I love how pretty these colors look behind the card I cut out using my Silhouette Cameo machine (also available on HSN)!

YUMMY APRON

Okay, now the floor crew at HSN were teasing me about this apron … they didn’t think the general public thought that veggies were yummy … but I do! Ha! So there! ;) The awesome thing about the eBrush is that you can use your permanent markers to create cool designs on FABRIC! I used my Silhouette Cameo machine to create the stencils for this project, applying each of the colors one at a time. It was so much fun!

PATRIOTIC VISOR

And here’s a fabric project to get you in the mood for the parades and picnics you’ll be attending in a few short weeks. I purchased a plain white visor, then applied vinyl cut pieces to create the design. I think this would make such a fun Summer Camp project for all age groups!

I love titles with mixed fonts and thought it would be fun to use my own handwriting in this title. I wrote the word “Birthday” on a sheet of paper several times using a black marker and then scanned it to create the svg cut file. It was fun! And I hope to make more in the near future.

Thanks for coming by! Have a great day!

BasicGrey R.S.V.P.

Yesterday I had several projects featured on the BasicGrey Blog using the R.S.V.P. collection. I’ll share a few of my favorites here, but if you would like to see them all, be sure to go see the post HERE. :)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY

Each year my parents take the kids out on a Birthday lunch and shopping date. They love having the special one-on-one time with Gramma and Grampa.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_HappyBday1

I had fun combining several of the patterned papers together on this page. And the new Printed Veneer Tags are so swoon-worthy! I decided to use one of them as a home for my title, a 3×4 phrase card and a few die cuts.

PARTY

I used a color block technique on this page about my daughter’s birthday party. Machine stitching between the sections and repeating the circular elements around the page ties it all together. I had a lot of fun “decorating” each of the circles with all the fun products available in the RSVP collection.

And here are a couple of cards … gotta always have birthday cards on hand! :) On this first card, I layered together several frames to serve as the main element of this card. I love how the colors and themes of this collection aren’t too age- or gender-specific. This is one of those cards that would be appropriate to give to anyone.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_OneYearOlderCard

This next card is great for any occasion. I cut out the red “So Much Happiness” layer and then combined it together with more Snippets, die cuts, and a transparency bouquet of flowers. It was so easy! I finished it off by wrapping the sentiment with a length of string and adding a few candy dots.

BasicGrey Capture Birthday Album

Smaller sized albums seem to be all the craze right now, and to be honest, I was a little hesitant to try them. I’m not a huge mini album fan … their odd shape and size making them difficult to store and all … and I had the feeling that these half-pint albums would present the same problem. Then BasicGrey asked me if I would put together an album using their NEW Capture line. I decided to give it a go … and I can honestly and whole-heartedly say that I LOOOOOVED every minute of it!

My kids love looking at pages about their birthday parties over the years and I have always wanted to put together a smaller album for each of them with all their parties in one place. I decided to start with Maryn and here is the result. (I wish I would have taken more close-ups of the album before I sent it off … but hopefully, you get the idea. :)  )

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_BdayBook1Cover

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_BdayBook2

One thing that made putting this album together such a breeze was the way BasicGrey has configured their Capture albums. The albums include 5 preprinted double-sided tabbed pages, 5 preprinted double-sided cardstock pages, and 8 page protectors in different configurations. (I used THIS ALBUM here.) The preprinted pages make it so easy to start scrapping directly on the inserts and then in the sections where I wanted to include more photos/information, I simply added one of the page protectors.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_BdayBook3

The second thing that made creating this album so easy was the Waterfall Pack (RSVP). This sweet little number includes die cuts, journaling cards, label stickers, and alphabet stickers … all in one convenient pack! It is AWESOME! And I can’t wait to pick up more of these.

JanaEubank_BasicGrey_BdayBook4

Of course, being a scrappy product lover, I didn’t just stop with using the Waterfall Pack. I also mixed in some Snippets, paper, chipboard letters, and transparencies from a few other lines (Hey You, Hey Girl, etc.). BasicGrey collections cross-pollinate so beautifully, so it was a great way to use up bits from my stash. I even added some plain kraft cardstock die cut words and shapes to round things out a bit.

Here you can see where I added more real estate to the page protector by decorating a piece of folded cardstock. The “Gonna Party” 4 x 6 card is the front of the folded card, then you open it to find two photos inside (the pictures of the hats below).

Thanks for taking a peek at my album! I seriously can’t wait to duplicate this project for the rest of my kids. And the best part is that because this is a three-ring album, I can continue to add birthday pages as my children grow and we celebrate their birthdays each year.

Be sure to stop by the BasicGrey blog this week to see how the other designers’ on the team have used the BasicGrey Capture albums. :)

Until tomorrow!
